Bungie on 'Destiny' single player: We'll encourage players to leave comfort zone

As online multiplayer continues to become the strong focus of many publishers and developers, single player experiences remain to be ones players still want, and Bungie is facing this with Destiny.

Recently, Bungie's David Dague talked about the support single players will find within Destiny, and said playing with friends is the best way to enjoy this game.

i haven't heard nothing about this game for awhile any new info is welcome, really looking forward to the beta as i can see myself just getting completely lost in this title

SITH801d ago

Yeah it is definitely a game to get lost in. I am ignoring ESO for this game. It will be worth it because it is bungie, and no monthly subscription. I can handle micro transactions in a MMO if there are any which I am sure there is.

Bungie have NEVER really shown much information. It has slowly leaked out from their various mail sacks. It is kinda frustrating, I got over it awhile ago.

I just want big revealing trailers showing off cool things.

Their gameplay reveal was the last most exciting thing.

I think there losing me here. My preference is SP all the way, with occasional MP options. Not the other way around. I'm done with MP focused games, I've been pretty consistent with this entering this current gen and I feel very comfortable with that decision.

I hope they haven't lost sight of this.

Utalkin2me801d ago

Then probably the game isn't for you then.

Shane Kim801d ago

I feel the same way. MP only games reminds me of World of Warcraft, and World of Warcraft reminds me of waste of life.

BlackTar187801d ago

been pretty consistent entering this gen? You mean the one that started 3 months ago?

MilkMan801d ago (Edited 801d ago )

Yes. Have you seen the plethora of MP games available already?
Its mind bogglin'

BlackTar187801d ago

I actually Disagree. The amount of MP games is very little.

BF4,COD,KZ = Games heavily featured for mp

Single player
DR3,RYSE,KZ,Knack,Forza,Outla st, resogun etc.

I mean really there is a very limited supply of Shooter MP games.

I know some of the single player games have SP but i chose to not make that list. Reallythough you can count BF4 COD and KZ in the single player and MP cats so really no i don't get it. It's not mind boggling at all.

here i am waiting for Titanfall becasue of the very limited amount of competitive shooters on next gen systems. I sure as well wouldn't be playing bf4 anymore if the catalog was actually mind boggling huge.

MilkMan800d ago

I saw on my console:

Games featured for MP offerings
COD, BF, Killzone, Warframe and Blacklight I believe there was another I might be wrong.

SP games
Ryse, DR3, Forza, Knack, Outlast, Resogun

Games with MP integrated into SP game:
Need for Speed

SP/MP
Sports, Assassin's Creed IV

Please bear in mind these are across both Microsoft and Sony platforms and we are mentioning indie as well as triple A offerings. Also bear in mind that Outlast, Don't Starve, Tomb Raider and Thief and Strider are all within this month.

When these systems came out, they were FPS heavy. So unless you liked that genre you basically watched the live feeds.

I'm writing this from memory so please forgive me if I missed something.

Spinal800d ago (Edited 800d ago )

You do know that this game was announced as an MMO to begin with? It was never a Singleplayer focused game EVER. Just like Halo never really was. I remember completing Halo 1 with my lil bro co-op we had a blast.

Bungie have always made Multiplayer games , they excel at that so Destiny is Online only. You cant play Destiny Offline I hope you know that.

That said. I love MMO's, im not really into Singleplayer games. Right now my most wanted games are firstly Diablo Reaper of Souls coming soon. And Titanfall played beta for both. They are just amazingly fun.

Destiny is a single player, and the multiplayer elements are used to disguise the always online DRM.

Loosen the straps on that foil hat.

If you have a problem with it then vote with your wallet.

Grave801d ago

Destiny, the new title that actually is "game changing".

LAWSON72801d ago

Yet not even next gen only, lol

LAWSON72801d ago

I want to see the competitive multiplayer more than anything else for this game.
