Destiny: Bungie Opens The Floodgates On Its ‘Shared World Shooter’

X360: Destiny is possibly the most ambitious game currently in development. We caught up with Bungie’s Joseph Staten to talk scope, multiplayer, next-gen and the importance of the player. (Bungie, Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

This game sounds really good to be honest. Can't wait to see more at E3.
Dailynch  +   965d ago
It all sounds really impressive, I just wish they could show more than 2 seconds of gameplay!
MariaHelFutura  +   965d ago
I was a pretty good 2 seconds though. I really want to hear more about this,
eyeDEVOUR  +   965d ago
Being a big fan of MAG I'm getting interested in this game.... I did enjoy playing the first Halo on a LAN line while I was stationed in Kuwait, but it wasnt enough to keep me from going back to Socom2 online once i got back to the states....

Looks like a F2P to me...
Monkeysmarts  +   965d ago
What is that even supposed to mean... F2P is just an alternative business model to full priced games. It looks like Halo meets Borderlands and they had an MMO baby named Destiny.

So much cynicism these days.
Tultras  +   965d ago
Lol, why are you getting so worked up, he just said it looks like a f2p game. o.O
Monkeysmarts  +   964d ago
I'm not getting worked up, it's not that serious. I just don't get how it "looks F2P." Is that supposed to be some kind of insinuation that it looks cheap?

Looks like trolling to me
starchild  +   965d ago
Sounds incredible to be honest. I really hope they bring Destiny to PC. If not I will probably get the PS4 version.
BanBrother  +   965d ago
I'm getting the PS4 version definitely. Exclusive content ftw!
Jek_Porkins  +   965d ago
Bungie also opens the floodgates to DRM on home console games!
Unicron  +   965d ago
How is Destiny different from MAG, Warhawk/Starhawk though?
Jek_Porkins  +   965d ago
Destiny has a campaign, but you cant play it without online connection. You can play the Starhawk game without being online, while MAG and Warhawk had no campaign whatsoever, making those games worthless if you aren't into online gaming or want a game for both campaign and multiplayer. This explains why MAG, Socom Confrontation and Warhard are like $1.99 now at Gamestop.

No reason for that disagree. The man is just asking a question.

The big mcguffin about Destiny that they aren't telling just yet is that your playing the game on a server like a MMO game. THIS is why its so damn huge and why you LITERALLY can fly from one planet to then next in real time.

MAG and Starhawk are pretty big games. The difference is they are exclusive on PS3 (the real difference is space) They are using Bluray for those games, thus they can make them pretty damn huge.

Even with Bluray, a game like Destiny would literally take up well over 150 or 200GB, I say this cause UC3 takes up 82gigs and its NOT open world nor can you fly to another planet in real time.

Sandbox big, open world big are NOTHING compared to MMO BIG! please, PLEASE PLEASE understand that. This is MUCH MORE then a "open world game" its not open world like GTA, its open world like Guild Wars 2.

Another thing to note, you dno't call a damn game that needs to be online "drm". Its like saying when you play COD4 MP its "drm"....the damn point of it is to connect online! You kinda have to.

Again, Destiny's actual world is the size and scope of an MMO NOT a normal open world.

Did you forget MS has 8.5gigs of space on DVD9 on the 360? How on earth could the game even be made if thats the limitations they are dealing with? GTAIV was hindered by such limitation ie why there is less features and NO planes in GTAIV. No space for such a feature.

I think you are very miss understood and confused on why this game is "online" its not because is co-op or MP....its because the actual wold of the game just can't be on a psychical disk, ie WHY its an MMO only on servers. How many games have you seen on disk on CURRENT gen systems that are larger then Guild Wars 2 or WOW? LOL!

Don't talk about DRM, cause I think you have no idea why this game is being made the way its being made.
MysticStrummer  +   964d ago
There have been console games that required you to be online before you know, and not just multiplayer only games.

I was hoping for more info with the word "floodgates" in the title, but I'm definitely excited about Destiny.

Its not DRM, its an MMO game. You cant have an MMO without an always on connection. Stop trolling.
_-EDMIX-_  +   965d ago
It has a day and night cycle. I actually want to know if its a real 24hour clock like Animal Crossing, or like a in game clock ie GTA?

This game is shaping up to be something really different. The size and scope of an MMO but the feel of a single player and FPS...very interesting.
N311V  +   964d ago
I hope it's not a real 24 hour clock as I'll rarely see sunlight.
chukamachine  +   965d ago
Could be a massive game.

PS4 version for me.
Dlacy13g  +   965d ago
I am pretty excited for this one ... Bungie certainly is aiming for a huge game but I believe they are capable of delivering.
Pintheshadows  +   964d ago
So it is a persistent co-op driven competitive massively multiplayer online role playing game first person shooter. Or PCODCMMORPGFPS for short.
avengers1978  +   964d ago
Supermax  +   964d ago
The next Xbox will have exclusive content as well.
N311V  +   964d ago
I'm not really into MMO games or FPS but Destiny has me interested.
