Destiny's maintenance period is over and the game's PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 beta is back online a day earlier than expected, Bungie announced on its official website.

The beta is also now available for Xbox 360 and Xbox One players. Codes were sent out earlier today.

"We know you've been waiting, so we busted our asses to finish our chores up early," the post reads. "You can download and play the beta right now. This is a great moment for the entire Bungie community to share in this adventure, and we couldn't be more excited. Get in there. Break it. Tell us what you think. Share your experiences online.

The beta went offline yesterday afternoon, following its launch last week; it was expected to return sometime on July 23 with the beta launch for Xbox 360 and Xbox One players as well.

The beta will run until July 28 for all players.

Destiny launches Sept. 9. For more on the game, check out gameplay footage from the beta.
