Destiny alpha: Nearly 6.5 million games played

So we already know how Jonny felt after playing Destiny, and it seems he’s not alone in his adoration of Bungie‘s new universe. The studio’s just published a “Post Game Carnage Report” following the weekend’s alpha test – and there’s a whole stack of impressive numbers contained within.

Bungie community manager David Dague explains there was actually a healthy dose of skepticism surrounding the game:

A lot of our friends asked us if this was a real Alpha. It was. We’ve gathered a mountain of data and feedback. We’re learning and reacting and Destiny is going to be better because of it.

Here’s just a sample of that number-mountain:

  • 149,522,313 Primary Weapon Kills
  • 21,782,610 Secondary Weapon Kills
  • 4,002,737 Heavy Weapon Kills
  • 21,687,298 Super Ability Kills
  • 2,819,211 Orbs of Light Gathered
  • 6,850,773 Control Points Captured in the Crucible
  • 1,195 Deathless Medals awarded in the Crucible
  • 4,356 Splatters with the Sparrow
  • 667,966 Public Events Joined
  • 60,491,944 Fallen Dregs Dispatched with Extreme Prejudice
  • Too many to count: Guardians served in Dance Parties
  • 6,461,871 Player Games Played!

If you missed out on the Destiny alpha – or if you played and can’t wait to jump back in – you shouldn’t be waiting too long. Bungie has promised a beta test starting July 17th (for PS3 and PS4 gamers, at first), and the whole thing’s set to launch on September 9, 2014.
