Bungie compares Destiny player-count to Borderlands: In Destiny ‘there are other people out there’

In Bungie’s upcoming shooter Destiny, players will encounter several groups of other players in the world, blending the single-player into the multiplayer. (Bungie, Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So excited! Currently playing Borderlands 2 with my cousin and brother. Can't wait to get my mitts on Destiny!!!

I'm betting 16 players, four unique squads scattered across the game world.

Hahaha. This is an MMO chap. There will be a LOT more than 16 players. Try thousands on a server. Likely split into three servers. Europe, Asia, America.

Or not which saddens me and drops my interest level significantly. It seems that it will just randomly match you up with similar levelled squads. I have to say that is a bit disappointing.

Bungie has repeatedly stated this is NOT an MMO.
Pintheshadows  +   636d ago
They have avoided using the term MMO but you can't deny the massive similarities Destiny has to an MMO. Instances for example are ripped straight from the genre.

Any PvP? That is what I would truly like to see.
Mainsqueeze  +   637d ago

Borderlands + Halo = Awesome

I just purchased Halo 4 the other day, couldn't stand it, returned it, picked up Borderlands 2 instead, couldn't stand it, returned it, just wasn't fun.

I have really liked every other Halo game though, and I loved Borderlands 1.

That being said, Destiny looks awesome, I hope it's better than JUST halo + Borderlands. I think they will take the best of both and make it even better.

It is more likely to be Borderlands + Halo x 1000.

I haven't played a game that has actually pulled this off so I have all my fingers crossed. Defiance is the same idea but it was just shoddy in a lot of areas.

As long as the PVP is restricted to certain areas, I am fine with PvP. I don't want there to be gangs of high skilled players just waiting around to attack new players during their journey. I want co-op whenever I want, but the ability to restrict PvP if I don't feel like competing against other players.

It'll be instanced I think.

dont ever compare anything to borderlands the only reason the game survived is because of coop.
plus borderlands is a rpg with drop in coop and destiny is mmofps

Destiny is not an MMOFPS. It is an FPS (with RPG elements) with drop-in co-op, and it has matchmaking for public events. It is no more an MMO than Battlefield 4.

Edit: It is worth noting that Borderlands is also an FPS with RPG elements.

I'm hoping for PvP. Would be great to be able to get into a PvP server and wreck (and be wrecked) by others during my travels.

I wanna see what this game looks like on xbox 360 and ps3, I'm just curious. They've only showed nex-gen footage from what I've seen, only current gen footage seems to be in that first trailer where it looked totally unfinished.
