Destiny is ‘Shown’ – Yet No-One’s Really ‘Seen’ Anything

Bungie are producing a shooter. Shocking,It’ll be published by Activision (alarm bells anyone?) and they plan on, if the contract details are to be believed and haven’t changed, releasing a ‘Destiny‘ every other year. So far, so generic and so, so Activision.

Where things get interesting is that the game will be centered around MMO-esque ideals. Persistent worlds? Check. Characters that can be specced and have items equipped? Check. A class based system of characters that have their own strengths and weaknesses? Check. Oh, an iPhone app that lets you do this ‘speccing’ on the go? Checkiddy check check.

When you’re reading GameSpot’s 12,000 word thesis on ‘Why Destiny Will Change the World’, or when you’re watching IGN’s 24 hour livestream of people talking about Destiny’s concept art, keep in mind that no one’s actually seen anything. Don’t get swept up in the hype, keep your hyperbole to yourself. (Destiny, PS3, Xbox 360)
