SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - A beta version of hotly-anticipated Destiny video game will launch on Internet-linked PlayStation and Xbox consoles this month.

The new science fiction shooter title by the studio known for global hit Halo is set for official release in September, but the test run for those who pre-ordered the title promises “a diverse sampling of major activities featured in the full game.”

PlayStation console owners will be able to explore Destiny beginning on July 17, and the beta version will spread to Xbox consoles on July 23, according to publisher Activision and game maker Bungie Studios.

Playing the game will require redemption codes obtained by pre-ordering, along with subscriptions to online gaming networks for PlayStation or Xbox consoles.
