Destiny's Competitive Multiplayer Must Be Unlocked

Unlike the studio's famed Halo series, in Destiny you won't be able to hop in and face off against your friends right at the outset. Instead, you'll have to plunk a couple of hours into the main game first.
Bungie's Tyson Green explained the reason behind walling off competitive multiplayer at the outset, telling Eurogamer:
We found early on that people here in the studio, when they jumped on the game – these were people who were already really familiar with the game mechanics – they would roll a new character, play through the first mission then go right into PvP, and they would just get really beaten up by the other players because they didn’t have a super ability yet and they’d only got an auto rifle from the first mission.It's clear Destiny is going to be a very different beast than any Halo game the studio developed before it. If you haven't already checked out the latest gameplay trailer for the upcoming shared-world shooter, I suggest you do so right here.
