Destiny companion app offers up lore, loadout changes

Xav de Matos, @Xav

When Destiny's July 17 beta launches on PlayStation platforms, Guardians hungry for more information can download and utilize the game's companion app. Revealed by IGN, the app allows players to examine and swap equipment, peruse missions and bounties and learn more about the lore in Bungie's shooter-RPG.

The app features detailed models of a player's characters, their gear and more. Swapping equipment with the app will happen in real time when playing the game. In standard Bungie form, the app will also delve into detailed stats for each Destiny play session.

For the beta, the companion app will be available for free on iPhone and Android as well as on the web. The app will work alongside the beta on PS3 and PS4 on July 17, and with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One when the beta begins for those platforms on July 23. When Destiny arrives on September 9, the app will be made available for a variety of other iOS devices.
