What's Your Destiny? Bungie's Destiny 10-Year Gameplan Previewed - AusGamers

AusGamers was invited out to Bungie for a recent reveal of Destiny, and writes:

"But I’m getting ahead of myself here. Let’s begin at what, exactly, Destiny is. According to Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg, who personally came out and introduced us to this unique and promising new property, Destiny is a persistent (always) online shooter set in a “mythic science-fiction” universe. It will span 10 (real-life) years and, as a point of housekeeping from Acti’s dear leader, feature no subscription model. It is a customisable game that, as far as we were told, has three character archetypes to build from and will offer solo, cooperative and competitive multiplayer, seamlessly blended into this persistent space.

The game(s) will feature a purpose-built network engine (for console at the moment) with always-on matchmaking, a dedicated server cloud, traffic repeaters and seamless host migration, apparently. I asked what all of this meant in the grand scheme of matchmaking here in Aus... (Destiny, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Looks neat. I was hoping for some Marathon stuff, but this looks just as good.

They signed with activision so of course they have a 10 year milk plan in place already.

Interesting that no one can look at this as a commitment to a newly established universe with a persistent playspace. There's no subscription fee in place, so apart from the planned DLC and physical releases (three in 10 years, not 10 in 10 years), I'm not really sure how they plan on "milking" anyone

wow. I haven't this excited for a game since mgs4. just reading this makes me anxious for E3. openworld mmo-esque, open co-op (players in the same part at the same time can be seen and interacted with irrc) or single player, space travel via ships, fresh new planets available with every expansion, an evolving universe, realtime time line, and an emersive ever growing story that expands as time in the real world goes on, customization, vibrant ans deep story that spans over 100'-s of years with its on history, and a dedicated team that has been buiding this universe since halo:ODST, all with garenteed no subscription fee? please take my money. please
