I've just played the beta. Not really read up on Destiny, or talked to many others about how it works. So these are my impressions. If I say something incorrect, someone please correct me.

As mentioned, there is the Crucible, which is the PVP arena.

Besides that, there is a Story mode, Strike mode, and Explore mode.

I don't believe the beta does much in the Story, they probably want to avoid spoiling the experience in the Beta. I found this quote:
Quote:
"You aren't required or forced to play any story missions in Destiny as part of a co-op group," clarified Bungie community manager Eric "Urk" Osborne on NeoGAF.
Now for Strike and Explore modes, they begin in the same "Overworld" type map. At any time you might see up to 8 or so other players in the same area as you. These players are all on the same side. You are all there to shoot the bad guys. So this part I consider very similar to Borderlands. Roaming some wastelands, popping some baddies. The only difference is that you might randomly come across some other human players. It's more part of the atmosphere than a big impact on your game.

The Strike missions do have a goal, typically with a boss type fight. This means you descend into a dungeon type area. As you do so, the random strangers disappear from your game. Anybody organized into a Fireteam (think squad) will continue on this Strike mission together until the boss is defeated. When you return to the Overworld area, you might come across more human players again.

The Explore missions are some simple side quests. Again, similar to some of the Borderlands missions. Kill 10 enemies of this type in the area. Pick some seeds of this plant or whatnot.

So, the biggest theme is that outside of the Crucible (PVP Arena) mode, the other human players are all friendly, and sort of more part of the atmosphere than directly impacting your game. If you really, really don't want to come across any players in your game, not sure if you can turn that off. Maybe just for the Story mode.

Thanks Esoteric for the beta key, got a titan up to level 5 and I'm liking what I'm seeing. Only issue is when exploring a bit somehow I stumbled onto a lvl 22 mob and got one shot, not sure if that's supposed to happen in the beta

Is there world PvP? Can I shoot other players outside of specified deathmatches, CTF, etc?

Seems like Bungie spent quite a bit for big name voice talent. Peter Dinklage, Nathan Fillion, Lance Reddick (Cedric Daniels from The Wire), and even this dude from Fargo



Those are only the credited ones from the beta, I'm pretty sure I also heard Claudia Black (Farscape, Dragon Age, Mass Effect) in there also

If this game has local co-op I would buy it for sure.

Yep Claudia Black is in there, along with many others. I only know Lance Reddick from Fringe (best show ever :P).

Bill Nighy is in there. Hes the main Guardian dude. There is a British sounding older lady I recognize, just cant place her though. Also Gina Torres from Firefly, Angel etc. I think I recognize every voice from some show, except for the PVP announcer, can't place him.

Haven't been able to find a list of all the voice actors anywhere.

Except for how lazy Bungie is, with giving the moon the same gravity as Earth

And I guess I'll never go near the PvP portion of this game, wow is it terrible. Your character can take so little damage it's like a meat grinder, not fun turning corners to get instakilled almost everytime. The weapons are super imbalanced as well, if you're taking anything other than an auto-rifle and/or sniper rifle you might as well just quit. They need to drastically rework that mode to make it any sort of fun

Didn't really like the 6v6 either. But I found the opposite. I figure 3-4 solid hits should take down an enemy. Not unloading a full clip, reload, then a couple more shots.
