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. (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

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
SITH  +   719d 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.
Utalkin2me  +   719d ago
Then probably the game isn't for you then.
Shane Kim  +   719d 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.
BlackTar187  +   719d ago
been pretty consistent entering this gen? You mean the one that started 3 months ago?
MilkMan  +   719d ago
Yes. Have you seen the plethora of MP games available already?
Its mind bogglin'

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.
MilkMan  +   718d 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.

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.

Destiny, the new title that actually is "game changing".
LAWSON72  +   719d ago
Yet not even next gen only, lol
LAWSON72  +   719d ago
I want to see the competitive multiplayer more than anything else for this game.
WeAreLegion  +   719d ago
I've already planned to go through the game loan wolf style the first time. I love exploring a world by myself. Meeting other people along the way will just add to that experience.

Edit: @UnRivaLeD - I know! I'm so excited! It would be cool if they could get the traveling to other planets to be seamless, like No Man's Sky, but that's asking a lot of an already beautiful and awesome game.

Destiny is online only.

"At the same time, Destiny is a very different animal than Halo in that Halo only required an online connection for multiplayer. The game’s single player and cooperative campaigns could be enjoyed without an Internet connection. Destiny, on the other hand, cannot be played without an Internet connection."
fenome  +   719d ago
I'm going through it lone wolf the first time too. Unless they announce split-screen (hasn't been confirmed or denied). If it has split-screen then I'll play through it with her like we did on both Borderlands games.
skydragoonity  +   719d ago
Pls clarify me on this issue, is destiny online only?
Bolts-N-Rays1109  +   719d ago
Yes. You must be connected to the Internet to play Destiny.
Bolts-N-Rays1109  +   719d ago
I guess a couple of people don't believe me. Here's proof: http://gamerant.com/bungie-...

This is the FPS I'm really looking forward to. This game can be the next big thing.
Deathdeliverer  +   719d ago
This is a game I am really looking forward to.
S2Killinit  +   719d ago
Destiny will be the new Halo. Love the SciFi/fantasy vibe of this game. Never been this excited for a First person shooter like I am for Destiny.
Phoenix76  +   719d ago
Maybe I'm reading into this the wrong way(correct me if I'm wrong), but...... it sounds like, it sort of aiming to be like a bit like Boarderlands, where you can play the game as a SP and/or have your mates join up with you whilst your playing through it, but having it online instead. would that be about right??

I can't see or hear you...... you sound like my perfect online companion.

Just be warned, one squeak and I’ll blow your brains out.
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   719d ago
I'm really hyped for this its one of my most anticipated behind The Order 1886 and InFamous Second Son. But I don't like playing co-op with people I don't know. They don't like to cooperate with you, and they like to go off and do their own thing. Its annoying. Then you got all the idiots who blast their stupid music, don't tend to their annoying crying baby, and are 2 year old little kids cussing. Hopefully Destiny community isn't that bad. Anyways still getting it day 1 on PS4. I wonder what the exclusive PS4 content will be.
Geekman  +   719d ago
This depresses me. All I want is an FPS that doesn't need to be played online to enjoy for more than a week. And even when you DO play online, it gets old.
mcarsehat  +   718d ago
don't you need to have a co-op partner to finish the story anyway??
Surt  +   718d ago
Geez.. a lot of casuals here. Who played resistance ONLY for a wk? Or vegas 2? or mag? socom? warhawk?

Strong multiplayer communities they all had with players that have stayed with those game till the end and more. what happened to dedication?
