One of the many elements that was never seen of Bungie’s upcoming shooter Destiny is its character creation and customization, but today a very quick glimpse on it was shown. It was so quick that most missed it.
It's always great to have extensive character customization in these games. Hairstyle DLC packs confirmed. I mean, this IS Activision here.
If it doesn't affect your own experience negatively, who cares.
I'm not necessarily saying this game will have crappy DLC. But If you care about the gaming industry you should care about things like that. When a studio continually releases overpriced or crappy DLC yet people buy it it is bad for the industry. Now what makes some DLC worthwhile and some not would be a whole 'nother discussion.
10th Rider is right. Some companies will do whatever they think they can get away with to rip off their consumers. So you need to keep an eye on those shady offers and refuse them if you feel they are not worth it. It sends a message that consumers will not tolerate foolery like that.
I demand a customized merkin for my character. Nothing less will do.
I'm going to spend like 1-2 hours creating my character. I love creative options within games.
I was gonna go with the robot .
Yeah I may be an Exo also.
What's with the sudden flood of Destiny info?
Bungie invited bunch of reporters or what have you out for new play throughs and the embargo ended today at like 1:00 PM EST or something so that is why you are seeing so much stuff. Its probably also related to a BETA announcement in the near future, so this is a good way to generate more interest. Thats speculation on my part tho.
Thanks for the helpful info!
@ExPresident Bubble up for the helpful info! :D
Destiny will get all the high scores people expected (but didn't get) from Titanfall.
Do you like halo ?
@TheRatedD What on earth was that supposed to mean? I am truly befuddled. That being said, I'm anticipating a hefty score on Metacritic for Destiny, minus the one inevitable 7.5 like we've had for the last eight or so big releases.
Will just use stock characters cant be bothered with all this custom crap just let me shoot.
Why not personalize it? The whole concept of Destiny revolves around a large group of individuals fighting together. All different people of different backgrounds and skills.
Different people play in different ways. Some people make a character, give them a name and such. Other people just want to shoot stuff. Some people read (or listen to) quest text, others next next next kill stuff. Nothing wrong with either approach.
Not me, I'm that guy that spends hours creating characters... only to never see what i have created in game lol
First person shooter... best hope there are lots of reflective surfaces. You know, so you can see just what kind of generic helmet you have hiding your highly customised character :)
Like with Elder Scrolls, there is a 3rd person view option.
Destiny has a third person option? That's a bad thing if it's available in the competitive side of the game. Not a deal breaker for me as I'm more interested in the PvE side of it. Just a little surprised :)
How very comprehensive looking. Wonder how many options there are. It would be cool to have Skyrim levels of customization.
I could never see the point of character customization in games with first person perspective view. You can't see your character, anyway. I absolutely love it on third-person games, though.
One thing I hope they do is allow those who pre-order the game to customize their character and reserve a name (if you even get a name) the way many MMO's allow pre-launch. Would be convenient. I highly doubt this would be happen, but it would be cool. On a different note, I really hope Bungie does what Gearbox did with Borderlands 2 and releases a character skill tree creator. Aside from the revenue/publicity, it would be great to plan your character out. Whenever I first played Borderlands 2 I immediately knew I was going to play a Siren and because I was playing the entire game with a friend I knew I would be focusing on abilities to heal both of us. Again, it's not something I think is required - just something that fans like myself would appreciate.
