"The game's Director navigation system lets players choose between modes."
All those game modes sound awesome. This is going to be the best holiday for gaming ever. Exciting times ahead.
Please tell me there'll be standard competitive modes. I NEED a hardcore online game to play. Was really hoping they could bring the Halo MP experience to PlayStation. This game is looking less and less like that with every new bit of info
I think you are a little misinformed on what this game is
The focus of the game or at least how it is marketed is on the mmorpg-ish aspects of the game, nevertheless I think Bungie will not neglect the huge playerbase that loves competitive multiplayer. They allready have the pedigree to deliver on that premise. In other words; you will be fine ;)
I'm pretty sure the Faction Wars mode is what you're looking for. Its multiplayer, and the name alone suggests it will be PVP.
Yea there is, but you will have to play a few hours of the campaign to unlock it as the MP and story mode are intertwined to the entire experience. Just putting in the run of the mill unlocking guns with level thing will just make the whole appeal of searching and finding guns in the SP that can then be brought into MP basically useless and honestly you would be missing out by just playing the MP of a Bungie game.
There is PVP, we just have not seen it yet. They are to show it at E3. Don't know why no one else would answer -_-
@Shadonic I find the campaign portion of Bungie games utterly mind numbing. The concept of the story is great and should be epic, but the story telling and dialogue is pathetic and how it unfolds gameplay wise is just monotonous... endlessly following a marker on the map, get to marker, kill a hundred enemies, listen a radio call while you wait for your next map marker. buhh. One of those games where the story is better told on wikipedia, than in the actual game itself. I'm only interested in the MP
That Open ended "Do whatever" game mode sounds awesome. This game looks like Borderlands + Halo.....but better
I'd like to learn more about that Bounty mode. Coming from an MMO fan, I'm really looking forward to this game.
This game looks so much like Halo. Weird that everyone says TitanFall is COD, yet nobody really says how much this game resembles Halo. Some of the stuff looks just like it. The game is still looking to be fun and all, just nobody seems to mention it.
it looks reminiscent of halo but its not xbone exclusive so it wont get bashed
Sweet this looks exciting to boot I can't wait for this game to come out @People: Don't worry Sasuke Uchiha is back and stronger ever you hmmm honestly don't be an hater.N4G.Because let me show you this emo kid can put lot more emotion than you guys think :|
Guys stop he's stronger than ever, can't you read?
do you even lift?
This sounds brilliant, something different to TDM and CTF.
I wonder if they're still trying to avoid calling this an MMO.
they probably are because it isn't one. It's not massively multiplayer. The worlds are connected. "Shared-world". You are not running around with 40 players at once. The most you will probably see is 12 and that's only in certain areas. It is what they called it.
jayswolo There are other things that make a game an MMO besides the number of players. This is like saying a game is/isn't a RPG because you do/don't role play. It's a bit of a misnomer.
This game may not set the bar for shooters, but it looks like it will really break the mold. I'm extremely excited for this. Can't wait to try the beta.
'Shooters' is a very broad category.
where is the video?? the game sounds similar to that of brink in regards to the modes.
Sounds so amazing!
I hope Patrol mode has players on the same server in a non PVP state
for everybody who complained at the strike gameplay video that was just recently released im glad this video shows that there is other game modes and explains them. people started attacking destiny saying how generic and boring it look when the strike gameplay came out only to not realize that it was just a piece of the full content shown. remember we still don't know much of patrol, campaign or even pvp. there is much much more to learn about destiny, keep these videos coming!
the strike gameplay was on a modified version where the players were essentially on God mode until they had to show how dieing looked like. It was just something they through together to show how strikes looked like.
Exactly!!! It was one game mode of many...in one area of many...on one planet of many. We have only really scratched the surface of what this game holds in terms of content. It seems absolutely HUGE! I remain cautious, but extremely optimistic that this game will be great.
True. Strike looks a lot like Warframe and it can be repetitive, but then there will be the other modes. Good to hear/read.
All this time I thought this was a Unreal Tournament style game. But in reality it's an MMO'ish game?? This has my full attention. I love MMOs but ended up taking a huge chunk of my life away. I think I could had been someone special in life if it wasn't for them. LoL Seriously, a grab and go'ish MMO'ish game sounds very interesting indeed.
I think the fact that there's game types confirms that this is in no way shape or form an "MMO." It's like...next level Borderlands
Needs splitscreen mode
im more of a single player. so patrol mode will be the one for me:)
I can't wait to try out the beta for Destiny sometime this summer, I feel like it will be a must-have title but I need to play the beta and see if I will be making a wise choice with my $60 if I decide to pick this game.
My Destiny is to buy Destiny. That's ridiculous, probably someone already used that sentence.
My destiny is to buy a PS4 with and when Destiny is released.???
Thats all the way in September! You can spend your time waiting...or spend your time playing Watch Dogs and Infamous!
to the person who wonders why they avoid calling it an MMO. they have repeated this numerous times. NO FUCKING MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYONE HEAR THAT. THANK GOD IT IS FREE AFTER YOU GET THE GAME ITSELF.
There are plenty of MMOs that are not monthly subscriptions, some even being free. That isn't their reason for why they are not calling it an MMO.
This game looks sick, but will not buy it till a month after release just to make sure that there will not be server problems. Will be doing this with the next Battlefield game as-well. With the Sim city and Battlefield 4 problems after launch many people will be cautious with servers going down.
Very exciting bros :)
