Destiny's alpha extended for 'dangerous experiments'

The public alpha test for Destiny has been extended, according to a tweet from developer Bungie.

The alpha was initially slated to run on PlayStation 4 throughout the weekend and end this morning at 3 a.m. ET. There is currently no word on how much longer it will last, and we've reached out to Bungie to clarify.

Bungie tweeted that the alpha test had been extended to allow for "dangerous experiments," and players should jump in at their own risk.

Bungie with launch Destiny's beta phase on July 17 for PS4 and PlayStation 3. The beta will also hit Xbox 360 and Xbox One at a later date, with a full release on all four platforms slated for Sept. 9. A Windows PC version has not been announced, although CEO of publisher Activision Eric Hirschberg told us during E3 that it is something the company is "looking at very carefully."
