If you love Destiny and are currently playing the game’s beta, today Bungie is stress testing the game for two hours, and to celebrate the occasion the level located on the moon has just been opened for ueveryone to enjoy.
Fantastic mission. There was a side mission available during this one, but I wasn't able to kill the enemy in time. :/ I forgot what the enemy vehicles are called. Pike, maybe? They were fun. Reminded me of ghosts.
Was kind of hoping there would be zero gravity on the moon mission. Probably would of made getting around a pain though.
The story was fun, but the second and third times we played we decided not to bother with it and just explored instead. There's a hell of a lot of areas under ground on the moon! Some fairly low-level Ogres and a couple of level 12 Hallowed Knights that were fun to try to take down (easier with the pikes). Only found 2 of the golden chests - anyone find more?
omg this game looks awesome.
destiny is getting very interesting with this beta session. after playing many hours I can say destiny is here to succeed
I agree. What I don't understand is all the hate surrounding this game. "Halo knockoff" "Over hyped" etc. From what I've seen (a limited beta), this game is going to be a very solid work of art.
In response, it's not necessarily "hate" concerning those observations about Destiny. There are definite, multiple, aspects that are very similar to Halo. The hype is extraordinary too. I like Destiny alot, but it does have lasdt gen graphics, sound, gameplay etc... funny, Killzone SF got unnecessary mediocre reviews, imho, where Destiny seems to get a pass...
Has anyone found where that Wizard came from?
Awesome mission. HUGE map!!! This is shaping up to be one hell of a game!
It's short and map is small, it took around 50 minutes to visit every accesable location....
Maybe it's because you're just following the mission's waypoints. But, if you go in the exact opposite direction, you will find the map is really big and with plenty of enemies and loot, and some even some areas not yet accessible.
Mission was kind of lame and very short but the moon decent sized and the inside the moon places look sick.
Sooo, did you find the dead ghost that gives you the Saturn glimmor card ? Didn't think so hater....
I want to play moon! Ugh too bad I'm not home.
Playing destiny right now and I'm seriously enjoying the game. It's definitely a must buy so glad I preordered it in full at bestbuy love that store with the 10 dollars in rewards for preordering games is really worth it
It's ok, but I've given up on the crucible. I keep getting shot by people that can't possibly shoot me, not unless they can shoot through walls.
Hopefully it's just bugs that will be worked out before launch
Well that's what betas are for, to find these kinds of issues. It doesn't appear to be a problem with PSN or my connection as other online games seem to be functioning perfectly with no such weirdness.
i can't get on the moon is their certain requirements i need?
It is over only ran for two hours.
well poop. haha thanks for telling me.
I am so loving the beta on PlayStation 3. Actually loving the game about a trillion times more than I thought I would. I think this has pushed me to get a PS4 in September. I'll just say it's a birthday gift for myself :3
My bday is in October buy me one too :-) lol
I just like looking at the sky on the level, you can see satellites going back and forth
Love the game, for sure buy for me. I even liked the multiplayer. I guess my only fear now is how big is the game? How big was the beta compared? The beta caped at 8 which is fine, but they said the full games cap is only 20. I was hoping for at least 50. The game plays great and is beautiful. I'm worried it's going to lack content tho.
Yes Your Main level in the full game caps at 20, but then all your gear and stats STILL need to be decked out. You also unlock your subclass for each of your Guardian types. Each Subclass has tones of stats to upgrade and level up. The exploration and collection for loot and grinding all decks you out into something incredible. I personally cant wait. The Alpha convinced me to get the game, the beta convinced me this game is going to deliver on its promise. The portion of earth we have explored provided over 25 hours of content and there's still tons of exploration and loot that's been sealed off. I heard that The Moon is actually the smallest of the world maps, and That Venus and Mars Dwafrt Earth in exploration, and then ofcourse there's the RIFT which they aren't even talking about. They started Working on this game since Halo:ODST I believe so They've had well over six+ years to make sure this ambition comes to full fruition. And I'm super excited to see that Its JUST around the bend. I cant wait for the full game. The Beta is awesome, and Crucible for me is addictive.
Man, the moon was awesome! Me and two buddies decending deep into the moon and found The Ogre enemy was so exciting! I can't wait to explore Bungies universe like this! Destiny can be the best FPS ever made, imo!
Nice me and my brother did the same thing. Also did you did you find the dead ghost that gives you the Saturn glimmor card?
wow i was online for the longest time, and decided to get off line for just a bit, and in just that 2 hours. They put the moon missions f$#@ my life.
I've played the beta for 3 days straight, and this mission, like all, is "Go here, kill 50 guys, done, repeat." Final game better have more variety than the Beta.
Many MMOs are like that, to be honest. I think the neat upgrades, public events, random encounters, and hidden areas make up for the combat repetition. But yes, if I didn't explore, I'd totally agree with you.
Well Thank goodness the mission was just the starting point of the ultimate experience. Understanding that destiny is more than just the the missions, but the wonder of exploring, looting, grinding and discovering all the hidden treasure's with your crew is really the rewarding portion of it. I'm not blown away by the missions, I'm blown away at the fact that i'm discovering soo much of the world that's large in part walled off because of the beta, There's still areas of earth that's still left un explored, still new enemies with high levels to kill, still secret weapons, gear, ghost skins, ships, sparrows to find, subclasses to completely master and things to upgrade. If you're going about destiny simply to do missions then the core values of the games full experience is lost. For me the game after the end game is going to be the best portion of it since all the main missions will be done and it'll be all about exploring the depths of Earth, The Moon, the Rift, Mars and Venus. This is an MMO with no monthly fee, The 2 Destiny Expansions are gonna be rad, and I cant wait to see what they do for the inevitable sequel.
THANK YOU!. Someone finally gets it. Bungie have made no secret that this game is about achieving the level cap quickly and then grinding and doing dungeons/raids to get higher stat equipment and weapons. I for one can't wait to hit that level cap and start grinding to get good gear. It's what mmo's are all about and i love it. Although technically speaking this isn't an MMO. The exploration is the heart of this game IMO and i can't wait to do it with my friends.
Unleashing the hive on the moon was just awesome!
The moon mission that was available was OK, it was too short. When exploring the moon that was great. It was lots of fun exploring the moon than old Russia, especially when you got deep into the hive tunnels. The best part was finally being able to take down a orge without it doing the usual beat down it gives you in old Russia. Also the scenery on the moon was excellent. Looking at Earth from the moon and watching it rotate made it even better.
I better find a Wizard there.
Damn I must have missed the window! It's not available now!
Can't understand why everyone thinks this game is great. Shooting is slow, bosses take no skill to beat(hide and shoot), multiplayer is awful and the missions are boring. Maybe I'm missing something.
