The alpha test phase of Bungie's ambitious new sci-fi shooter was supposed to end last night, somewhere around 11.59pm Pacific Time. It didn't. That means that, yes, you can still play Destiny right now. That's a reason to dance, right?
In a tweet early Monday morning, the studio that created Halo announced that it was extending the PS4 preview of their upcoming game.
There's a rumor that the #Destiny Alpha might be extended to allow dangerous experiments. Play beyond the official close at your own risk!

It's not been said just how long this extension will go but folks should remember that the characters you craft and level up for the alpha won't carry over to the beta. So don't go getting too attached. But if you wanted the chance to try out different Guardian classes and unlock more skills, Bungie has given it to you. One hopes that the dangerous experiments referred to in the tweet means that they will be dropping new stuff into the alpha.
