GR: Unlike the studio's famed Halo series, in Destiny you won't be able to hop in and face off against your friends right at the outset. Instead, you'll have to plunk a couple of hours into the main game first.
That's kind of awesome.
It is because it will also weed out some of the absolutely clueless people that jump into mp. Peter Griffin..I'm looking at you ¬¬ http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Personally, I dont give two rat turds about the multiplayer. I'm coming in for the story, coop, progression, loot & exploration.
That's cool. Personally I want the entire experience. To each his own.
That's cool as well if that's what you want. I rarely ever even fire up the competitive multiplayer portion of games anymore for various reasons. #1- Nauseatingly repetitive. Shoot people, die, respawn, shoot people, die, respawn. Objective based is a little bit better but your still doing the same thing with absolutely no story. Just not my thing. I don't really play games with a competitive motivation. I know many do. #2- I also have a backlog so big I don't have time to waste on multiplayer even if I wanted to. If I did want to play multiplayer, would it not be better to play a game solely built for that kind of play? Those are my 2 reasons but they are big ones. I would have preferred them put all the resources into the story/coop for Destiny & not even messed with multiplayer. This is just all my preferences and it doesn't really bother me that it has MP but sometimes I'll think of how much more it could have been if all that work on MP would have instead been put into the campaign/story & coop.
I concur. Excited for the journey.
That's actually cool :D. I remember the times when we would play to unlock things out of curiosity
yep, hopefully people will be better at the game before joining multiplayer modes this way.
Makes sense, from all the reports and news it seems to be an MMO and in every MMO you have to reach a certain level before you can do PvP to have a minimum of skills and equipment.
Why its always good to read the whole article not just the title. From title alone I got worried destiny was gonna be focused on care bares.
At first I thought "What the hell?!" as usually I only really play online with shooters. But I don't know much about this game at all, I prefer things to be a suprise and judging by the other comments this might not be so bad. Im used to MMOs where PvP takes a while to get to, so maybe its like that.
Im completely fine with this. Something new & different for a change.
Titan fall did this...but so many ppl hated the campaign...it wasn't forced but in order to get the titans u had to play through the campaign it passed a lot of ppl off
Well Titanfall is an online shooter, in that way it's like blocking the MP from BF4 or CoD before you played the singleplayer.
I don't think it's blocking it so much as making sure you're familiar with the concepts and lore. From what I've read they're really trying to treat this like a living world not just a lobby based online shooter.
I'm perfectly alright with this, I usually don't touch the multiplayer of any game until I've exhausted the single player campaign.
The way I see it is that it's their game and their experience. I'm glad they're sticking to their guns and not letting the whiney internet forcefully change and manipulate their game. Too many cooks in the kitchen usually ruins everything...
I don't have a problem with this at all. I usually play through the single player campaigns of games before jumping online anyway, so I can at least know whats what before getting my ace handed to me.
probably be playing more of the co-op anyway.
I jump straight into multiplayer first. I never even tried the Battlefield 4 single player. Destiny is not really a competitive multiplayer game and it doesn't need to be. Open world games can be great without having multiplayer attached to it.
This is how it should be! #Classic
