We have two free copies of the PS4 version of Destiny to give away to you folks, courtesy of Activision. Here's everything you need to know about the giveaway.
How do I enter?

What's the other fine print?
The only catch here is that you need to live in the United States to be eligible. Oh, and you can't be a Cinema Blend employee obviously.
I ignored the huge marketing blitz for Destiny and know nothing about the game. What is it, again?
Destiny is a multiplayer shooter set several centuries in the future. Humanity is on the brink of extinction, with the few remaining survivors living in a single city on Earth. The players are Guardians, elite warriors who head out into the solar system to retake Earth's former colonies from hostile alien races.
The players undertake missions through solo or co-op missions. Through these tasks they'll earn new equipment to strengthen their character. As their character levels up, they'll also acquire new abilities.
Competitive players can also check out the Crucible. The Crucible let players face off against each other in objective-based battles. Both the competitive and cooperative sides of the game regularly receive new content from Bungie.

Your Destiny review called it "three average games in one." Do I really want a copy of it?
I think Destiny has its flaws but it's worth a play. There are clearly a lot of people who enjoy the hell out of it and I can see why. Plus, Bungie's going to keep adding features and content in the months ahead so Destiny may be a much better game in time.
Either way, this is a free game. You've got nothing to lose by trying it out. If you hate Destiny, you can do whatever you want with your copy. Still, I suspect you'll find Destiny worth at least a few hours of entertainment.
