Wandering around the tower I noticed today an area on the left with merchants from something apparently called "new monarchy".

 

What's interesting is that in the description of some of the items they sell it says something... I don't remember the wording but it was something like the actions of the character counting towards that faction when wearing that.

 

Looks like there'll be some kind of competition between factions.

Yeah there are actually 4 factions in the tower, at least so far in the Beta. They all have to do with the Crucible though. If you go to a map-bot in the tower, look for the crossed-swords (guns?) icon. There are five on the map but one is for the Crucible vangaurd. The other four are the factions.

 

I hope there are PVE factions of some sort. Actually, at this point I'm hoping Bungie is adding just as much stuff to PVE as they are for PVP. I'm really hoping they add some sort of horde-mode for end-game PVE content. That way those of us who don't like PVP as much have something to do that is repeatable but dynamic.

Would love an Xbox One (UK) code if anyone has a spare that they don't mind passing on!

Played a few hours last night, enjoyed this a lot more then I expected to. The firing mechanics weren't as soulless as some of the videos I saw and there was a decent amount of recoil feel back from the guns. The no-respawn area's really do get difficult, even when you're playing in a 3 man fireteam on normal, a couple of us went down a few times.

 

I hope the full game is as big as it feels like it could be, we did a little exploring and found area's I could have sworn we had not been to during the story so there seems like a large amount of exploring to be done. The enemies respawn pretty quickly too so you can always find some action to get in on.

Bungie has yet to clarify what the permanent reward is, so no one knows. It might not even be an emblem.

has anyone tried looking up the grimoire cards they've unlocked? All of mine say "redacted" in the contents, but others have said they actually get little bits of lore and facts. Why are mine all redacted?

Yeah they are hiding that information because they do not want to spoil stuff in the game before it comes out. which i suppose is understandable being that from the Beta you cannot really tell what is going on in the story.

nevermind. it seems it only goes up to level 4 story on xbox. what I was really after was unlocking The Crucible, which gets unlocked when player levels to 5. in multiplayer, it looks and feels eerily similar to titanfall,from the gameplay to the UI elements.  did anybody else get that?
