10 Things We Want From Destiny: The Dark Below DLC

CheatCC says - "I don’t know about you all, but I am now officially a rabid fan of Destiny. I honestly haven’t played mush else since its release unless there was a pressing reason to do so. So that being said, I can’t tell you how insanely pumped I am that The Dark Below releases on Tuesday. I haven’t been this excited about an expansion to a game since the Freedom Cry expansion for Assassin’s Creed IV. However, being the gamer that I am, there are some things that I am hoping to see with this new expansion. I realize completely that some of these things have been talked about, some of them will be included and some of them are just the ramblings of a fanboy, hoping for the impossible. But no matter the outcome, here are some of the things that I am hoping for in the future of Destiny."

I don't like the idea of online shop, I don't want to open the door to Microtransactions at all. I wish the ships would do ANYTHING. Like customize them, or collect random parts throughout the 4 areas to build a custom ship. Make them give you some sort of boots or something. So mich potential and nothing when it comes to ships. I do agree strongly with customizable shaders, let us look different/

SmokingMonkey1351d ago

Yes, I like collecting ships in Destiny. But I would LOVE if they were just as customizable as your character.

I really like the game, I don't think a FPSMMO lite* needs an epic story, just more content...which it's getting.

Ethereal1351d ago

I can confirm that there are several new ships on the way that include unique markings and lighting (think landing strip lights). If these new additions are ships or shaders for them is still unknown but I did see neat ones at PSX this weekend.

pixelsword1351d ago

I wish the DLC didn't cost almost as much as a full-blown game.

UKmilitia1351d ago

i gone back to it today as i picked game up for £20.
will get DLC prob if the issues i had at launch are sorted now.
engrams being common when purple did my head in .
will have to see how much is added with dark below because i Think it could of been included from start.

if a game is only 22gigs after install i expect a bit more DLC to be free because it could of gone on disc

orakle441351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

It doesn't, it costs a 1/3rd of the price of a full-blown game. And if you bought both expansions at the same time, it cost you a total of $17.50 per xpac.

pompombrum1351d ago

In the UK it costs £20, to put that into perspective I bought Warlords of Draenor the WoW expansion for £30. That's extremely overpriced imho.

orakle441351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

WoD cost $50 in the US. I guess thats close, 30 pounds is $47 US.

stavrami-mk21351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

It's just under half price of the game in uk. I'm fine with that

Morgue1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

Once I hit level 21 I quit playing it for almost 2 months then tried playing it again a few days ago and lasted about an hour before I got bored with it. Hopefully this expansion will give me a reason too jump back in and play if not, I'll keep playing Alien - Isolation and GTA V

MysticStrummer1351d ago

I'm having a much different experience. I bought Far Cry 4 and GTA 5, got tired of them both in about two weeks, played the Destiny demo for two days straight, bought the full game, and at level 24 I can't get enough of it. Only reason I'm not on right now is there was a message about the game world rebooting.

People complain about Destiny's story, but FC4's was shorter and had about the same depth of story telling and character development.

xDHAV0K24x1351d ago

Destiny doesn't have a story!

JeffGUNZ1351d ago

Welcome to the club Mystic. The FPS mechanics are flawless and the grinding, gear, weapons hunt, and when you get to the Raid will be EPIC. The game is so addicting. I'll pass on a story with a game that has me playing well over 120 hours since launch.

Morgue1351d ago

It's a good game don't get me wrong and when I play with a group of friends it's even better but I'm more of a single player guy and don't like being forced too play online. With that said. That's what I meant by I hope the DLC will make the game feel fresh because I already paid for it and I know I'll be playing it come the 9th.

Death1351d ago

Having friends or a clan makes the game much better. I probably would have quit awhile ago if it weren't for my friends. I actually picked up another Xbox One along with Destiny so my kid could play with us. She made it to level 27 within a couple weeks which is better than I expected. It's been a lot of fun and well worth it to me.

If you actually quit playing it in the first place then it probably isn't for you. Level 20 and up is when the real fun begins. Destiny has ruined my playtime for any other game, I can't stop playing it.

Morgue1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

I know that and when Evil Within was released that's why I stopped playing.

Another factor is I'm also playing GTA V, Alien - Isolation plus other games, work full time, do art and play in band. That and I'm 44. I've spent so much time sitting in front of the TV playing video games over the past 34 years it's insane.

CorndogBurglar1351d ago

Most of these are weak things. Clan emblems, shaders and ghost shells? Sure they would be welcome, but how about something worthwhile, like matchmaking for Raids?

BenqMagician1351d ago

Totally agree with you about matchmaking for Raids and too keep everyone happy have it a option if u want too use matchmaking or not for raids.

Death1351d ago

They need a way to communicate in the game if they aren't going to do matchmaking. I would love to see a sign up sheet somewhere in the tower for people wanting to get in on a raid. There is no reason this couldn't be done. A list with everyone interested along with the option to view their gear and level would be a welcome change.

CorndogBurglar1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

I love this game and havent put it down since launch, but I just can't figure out for the life of me what Bungie was thinking.

I know they said that the raids are too hard to play with strangers, but come on. Its ignorant to think that you can't find 5 randoms to play with and beat the raid. People are constantly in the tower asking for strangers to join their raid group. Its obviously something people want.

MysticStrummer1351d ago

They could have another NPC with a computer screen behind him, like the one with bounties. Players could opt in for a raid, then go patrol or do some bounties until the 6th person opts in.

stavrami-mk21351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

Raid matchmaking would be a disaster for 10'million reason u cant even do a strike without a fool in the fireteam

cell9891351d ago

I dont care what people think about the story in this game, the gameplay is what really shines in here. That guy that reached level 21 and gave up on it, pretty much gave up on half the game lol. He didnt even got to play the weekly Nightfalls, or the Weekly heroics, worst yet he'll never know how beautifully designed the Vault Of Glass is. He didnt get to try any of the awesome exotic weapons either.

I have Farcry 4 and The Last of Us remake still on my back log because I cant get enough of this game, now the DLC is coming out to make matters worse :/

objdadon1351d ago

Lmao! I know exactly how you feel!
