According to Destiny's community manager, Bungie's upcoming game will have one area per planet.
That is kinda disappointing.
Well, for me personally it seems like the game is going to be just about the size of Borderlands 2. But the thing Destiny is lacking is creative NPC characters when you are exploring in free roam on the planets. I felt like Old Russia was empty because of the lack of characters. I sure hope the rest of the planets have NPC's. Would be nice to find some stranded Guardians, etc that have been surviving against the Cabel, Fallen, etc...and perhaps a little mad because of it.
gotta remember, it was only a beta. those things can be added for the full game. I found plenty of location throughout the cosmodrone that made me curious as to what they are. I have no doubt there will be plenty to do within the full game
There will be NPC's out in the world. Remember the Awoken Queen in the trailer? http://uk.ign.com/wikis/des... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Destiny to have "one destination" per planet and just 4 planets http://i.picpar.com/6nX.jpg
We didn't even see the entire "Old Russia" Each "planet will have multiple parts of the story, MP, and free roam. As for intriguing NPCs... did you not play the Moon Mission that was added yesterday? It hints that there are indeed NPCs and they will play a role. @Vish Jupiter is on the list too and who knows what else. I assume (since the game refers to "Earth's Moon" that other moons will be playable : Mars has two moons. Jupiter many, many moons.
Something I have taken from the beta. There are several inaccessible areas that will open up upon release. I have no idea how big they are, but i believe Bungie knows quality. Also, i have accepted that this is a Xbox 360/ps3 game that has been buffed, glossed and shined for the ps4 and x1. The content is the same with no true gameplay improvements with the current gen stronger hardware. If this receives the support, which I believe it will, and the current gen gets a stronger support base, then Destiny 2 will be the game to meet the expectations that this one may come up short of. Just my opinion.
yeah things like a fallen thats betrayed them and working for good would be a nice thing to have about the lands etc,instead of just beacons everywhere
Wow, Earth And the noon where not big !
Jupiter should have multiple mission for moons. Same with Saturn. Planetoids like Eris, Ceres and Pluto could give us a healthy number of locations.
DON'T LISTEN I guess DeeJ was misunderstood,he was answering to a totally different question,he never said "in the final game WE WILL HAVE ONLY ONE AREA" NEVER.Just a rumor..as you can see around there will be plenty of locations,maybe not available all at launch,but surely not 1 per planet -.-"
What if there were like 50+ planets? Would you still be disappointed? We still don't know how much content there will be so reacting at all is pretty stupid.
http://i.picpar.com/6nX.jpg say no more prepare to be dissapoint
Ya same here but I also try to remind my self of the full multiplayer suite that comes with it to tie up a lot of hours. While I don't care to much for MP it is cool that you can take the looted weapons and armor that you find in with you to matches to give you an advantage (or a fighting chance in my case), which will in turn keep me going back to strike missions and other instances to get better items. I don't know maybe it's false hope and a glass half full type of thing but I really enjoyed what I played.
In terms of MP, I think that'll play a huge part in the game. So far I've spent 50/50 between Crucible and PVE, and there's not even that much PVP content unlocked yet (Played 4 maps so far, and 1 mode). There's still 7 more maps (apparently, this is not official) along with 4 different modes we can see. The vehicle mode at the end also makes me excited ( air vehicles anyone)?
Makes sense for the other planets, but for Earth that is very disappointing.
In the video the question was if there is only one Explore mission per planet... Not ONE destination PER planet. So once again, like always totaly out of context. Here is good comment I borrowed from GAF It has been pretty clear that there was only going to be 1 area per planet in the Alpha and Beta, and if you thought that there would be more, you've been fooling yourself. Yes, there has been concept art of more, but nothing was ever 100% confirmed in the game and we never saw any game footage beyond Venus, Mars, Moon, Earth, Tower, Reef and Mercury ( which is still in the game as an arena for the 'Crucible elite' with exclusive rewards ). Also, you gotta love how some people make assumptions on how the final game will play based on a level-capped Beta with areas we can't properly explore because they are guarded by Lv.?? enemies ( Grottos ), at least three fully blocked off areas ( Seraphim Vault, Jovian Complex, King's Vault ), limited gear ( only Common and Uncommon ) and not much use yet for some of the stuff you get due to the level cap ( Materials / Crucible / Vanguard Marks ). There are legitimate criticisms and concerns, yes, but this jumping to conclusions and making assumptions needs to stop. People are talking like the relative lack of things to do in the Beta ( *cough* Level cap *cough* ) somehow will be this massive problem in the full game, but they forget that in the full game, you don't stop at level 8. The stuff we had available to us after hitting the cap in the Beta is not representative of the final game, because in the final game, the endgame doesn't start at level 8, it starts at level 20. The lack of stuff to do when you're capped at 8 in a Beta doesn't say anything about the actual lv.20 endgame in the final game. But no, 'the gameplay is so shallow' and there is 'no incentive to explore' and 'there's so little content' and 'there's nothing to do', etc.
Destiny is a disappointing game... Oh well, I'll just wait for No Mans Sky to release on Xbox One...
A bunch of people on B-net are saying Deej meant each planet is a destination, as many other locations have been shown on earth alone.
Errrr all those people saying this sucks, you guys obviously didn't play the Beta. If you did you would have seen how massive the free roam area is in Old Russia, and have no complaints about there being 4 other free roam areas like that in other planets.
I'll pick this up when it goes cheap , not overly impressed. Feels like a cross between halo and boarderlands minus the excessive loot.
That was my plan but I had $30 in soon to expire coupons to use so I preordered it anyway. But there seemed to be plenty of loot in the beta, I have over 20000 glimmer and have dismantled something like 150 weapons as I just have no room. My vault is full of level 9+ weapons and my characters are constantly maxing out what they can carry. If anything there is too much stuff to collect.
I don't know if we are playing the same beta but the loot is pretty scarce. Granted I'm sure I probably haven't played as long as you. However I have leveled up a character to 8 and played more after that and I don't find loot like I'd like for a rpg type game. It just doesn't seem like loot exist.
@val you must be doing something wrong then because I have plenty of loot... So many uncommon weapons and armor to choose from... Even some rare and legendaries that I can't even use
I spent most of my time in explore and the missions. I've hit cryptarch level 7 and it's now at the point that I'm dismantling level 9 and 10 weapons to make more room. If you spend most of your time in the crucible then you won't get as much stuff.
why would that be a bad thing? There definitely isnt a lack of loot or loot to be found.
What you stated are the exact reasons I love the game... To each their own, I guess.
Paid DLC guaranteed. It's Activision. This is quite a killer, and judging by Reddit, Neogaf etc, has pissed a lot of people off and killed their excitement. They said the beta was 10% of the full content. Well, if there's only 5 or 6 planets, that's worrying, not exciting. Lack of content springs to mind now. I would have expected 3 or 4 zones per planet. Yeah, there's like 5-8 missions in each zone, but they just dump you in different areas of the same zone, completely explorable at all times. I've really enjoyed the beta, truly, I was surprised by it and liked it a lot. Yeah it's mash up of Borderlands, Diablo 3, Mass Effect and the Halo I hate so much, but it's really well made and quite fun at times. But this news has killed any excitement I recently gained. With paid DLC being pretty much guaranteed as it's Activision and they know nothing of the word "free"...I dunno now. Seriously going to have to hold off until the reviews come in, no doubt the day of release, which is always worrying.
I agree with you. As I've said before, the thing that will kill this game is lack of content/length of the single/co-op portions. I love the game I really do but I'm disappointed if this is true... So much potential wasted if this is the case. The game is too easy on hard ( even solo) that also worries me too, so lack of content will ruin it. I had it pre ordered since April and will go through and get it but... If this lack of content really is the case, then I'll be done with the FPS genre for quite a while. Don't mistake this as trolling or bashing, I'm just truly irked that my GOTY candidate has potentially just went belly up...& what makes it worse is that it's such a damn good game that they could just settle for mediocre instead of greatness. Like I said I honestly hope this is not true what so ever.
Don't blame it on the genre lol DOOM&Unreal Tournament is coming
I don't blame the genre I blame the devs/publishers. Destiny has the potential to be great but IF the rumor is true and then I'll be disappointed greatly. The last good FPS was Bioshock (haven't played Wolfenstein yet) but still my point stands, they suffer from lack of content/longevity. Every FPS that's out is a bug filled, poorly designed mess... And I'm coming from playing them when they first release then watch as the sequels get more & more watered down as they come out. I love games/gaming, that's been my hobby since the Sega Genesis came out, but I'm sad how players/devs/publishers have been hindering my pastime.
well you are assuming that because there is only one explore area that means there wont be a lot of content. They have stated this is a very small sample. Just explore earth and you will find a lot of it blocked of for the beta. Number of planets or how many areas in those planets doesnt really matter if you dont know how big it its. But hey its just the typical internet over reaction that always happens until any real info comes out. I swear with the amount of mood swings people can have on a game at any second is crazy. Its like gamers are just a bunch of constantly pregnant people
Exactly what am I assuming? I've stated that IF... IF that were to be the case with Destiny then I'd be highly disappointed especially seeing how the beta was so much fun and has such great potential. You can check my past history in Destiny articles and I told people that this game is definitely a day 1 purchase ( & my personal GOTY candidate). My feelings haven't swayed one bit because the game isn't out yet, to do so would mean I'm like I'm like all the other sheep. I'm fully aware things were blocked out on purpose but it still doesn't change that I'd be rightfully pissed if I spent another $65 on a half assed game (but Bungie does have a reputation of producing AAA games). The entire time I knew of what Bungie wanted to do with the game I knew the potential problems were going to be story,length,& amount of content. Maybe I stated my opinion/feelings to bluntly but I don't beat around the bush. To end this- I'm still excited from what I've played ( single/co-op side) but never the less, I am worried about said issues and will be until I get my (still pre ordered btw) retail copy & see for myself. I hope to see you on the war torn planets in Destiny! ;)
Official Prediction: Destiny Will Barley Stay Relevant Come October.. Everyone will have beaten in or just gotten completely bored an didn't finish ( like I did with Borderlands 2).. Not saying its a bad game just saying its not what it could've been.
"like i did with borderlands 2" You are aware you're in a VERY small minority there? Most people who played BL2 were playing it months and months after the initial release. Hell the dlc is still keeping it relevant.
Hell ya.. Gladly dropped money on the season pass too.. Was a great game
one of the better single player and multiplayer games made I think, billmadeagate seems to be part of a small niche group of bizarre opinions of games.
It will barley stay relevant? What does the grain barley have to do with anything?? That barley came from the moon!
i just want to say after playing the beta, this is THE best fps game i played in years. this day one buy for me
so earth the only one who has different locations, Old Russia, European Dead Zone, Old Chicago, Eastern Flood Zone, Mumbai Push or just dlc for later
yes only old russia no other places...its activision so i am sure paid Dlcs will lure noobs to keep paying till it hits 200$ full game experience.
So WAT ffs don't buy it then if ur gona cry about it and if some1 wants to buy all the dlc for it fair play their money/im buying it day 1 & if they bring dlc i like the look of I'll get that to
Lol.. There is more than Old Russia on Earth..
@Ercs no, only Old Russia rest will be DLC or Destiny 2... One location per planet...
disagrees for telling confirmed truth ? only on internet...
Wow... and you played the full game... Tell me, how is it? O wait.. you and the rest of the party poopers here have you verdict ready already
We have only seen one area really and how much content that one had and that was the tutorial area. Doesn't mean the others have the same amount of content, they could be bigger with more content. As for DLC we already know that they have a season pass.
There was 42 areas in Borderlands 2 and most areas in Borderlands 2 were about the same size as Destiny's Earth Planet, so there better be a ton of Planets in Destiny to explore, otherwise this game is shaping up to be majorly overhyped and disappointing.
But you also had to run around A LOT to get anywhere and it took ages to travers the areas. Bigger isn't always better. Some of the story missions are just annoyingly long to finish.
WE HAVE ALREADY PLAYED 35% GAME THROUGH BETA
You put it all in caps so it must be true.
I had to log in just to correct you. We played 1/10th of the full content of the game, 10% of the full experience. With most of Earth and several missions and locked off, we got well over 35+ hours of exploration, leveling up, grinding a looting, and that's all outside of the Crucible stuff. You naysayers are just a vocal minority, there are 3 planets, the moon and the Rift, there's exclusive DLC which also gives PS players content on mars, and then there are 2 massive expansions that take place across the 5 explorable worlds already. The beta convinced Damn near everyone that it'll live up to its hype, and as such you'll have the naysayers looking to get a rise out of people. You're wasting your time. Don't buy the game if you don't want it.
@Sevir Well said
@Systemshock You never had anything positive to say about this game.. So why should we listen to you? Please go away
It's kinda boring so far. Next gen just hasn't impressed me yet. C'Mon Witcher 3! Im depending on ya!
And Dying Light!
damn i wish it was gonna be Old Russia, Old America, Old China and some side location also random patches of forest land with lots of over grown towns n small cites. but then again their are other planets.
I hope this isn't true
This is wrongfully quoted. The question in the video is "Is there only one exploreable planet?" The response is "Yes, we're clling them destinations - there's Mars, the moon, Venus and you've got earth".. This makes it extremely vague However, he goes on to state that the've shown everything there is in the release version of the game?
I assume that's regarding what can be done. Story missions, strikes, pvp, exploration.
Well... you know.. They need there hits, so this headline and changing the words here and there, makes more hits than the truth doens't it?
Controls really well but I am still not persuaded to buy it at full price. I guess I am just really bored of FPS games nowadays.
"Controls really well" The controls are identical to the controls in every halo game. Nothing new or unique about the controls, unless you have never played a halo game before?
By saying controls well, I mean the game feels nice to control - Accurate movement, impact of bullets feels nice, easy to move etc
So just boring old Russia for Earth I was hoping for a jungle map, snowy, tropical, urban ruined city like London
So... what the diagreers were hoping for just the boring and uninspired Old Russia?
Not surprised seeing how this is published by Activision. You just know the extra destinations will be released via paid DLC. I'm going to cancel my pre-order. I wasn't blown over by the game anyway and The Master Chief Collection will be out in November which will have way more content.
Way more content that you've already played a hundred times since 2001.
Yeah I cancelled now too. I'll buy it if, after one month people are still raving about it. IM betting after one month itll be gathering dust in most peoples collections, but Id be happy to be proven wrong. Im looking forward to Halo, only played the first and third, and hardly played online at all.
