Destiny 2's Strike The Inverted Spire looks really lovely in plenty of raw gameplay on PS4 Pro.
Idk I can feel like we are being charge 60$ for a dlc.
That's like saying GT6 should have been just dlc for GT5. Personally I think the Xbox 360 and PS3 were holding Destiny back and if they have to make Destiny 2 in order to start on the PC then I am fine with that. Wasn't Destiny designed from the beginning to have 3 major releases with expansions in between? This is a 500 million dollar commitment, you can't just keep releasing dlc and expect a return on that type of investment. Not when the dlc ratio of those who bought the full game drops the more you release.
@moldybread Well tbf a lot of GT players felt that way to so...... People expected it from the get-go because it's the trend with GT games
Using the same engine @moldyturds
Lol, I always thought it was a bit odd them doing a Destiny 2 when they could keep pumping out $40 add ons for the original, now we know why they done a sequel.. because they can pump out a $60 add on instead.
The main reason is D1 is very hard to develop upon, they kinda had to go back to the drawing board so that it could be an engine that was much easier to work with. Heard someone say that some scenes took an hour to open, that's an hour if waiting before you can even start working on it.
Well Guild Wars did that 12 years ago ... for a much cheaper price and it worked out for them (big addons). Visually Destiny 2 looks just "ok" to me ... also what´s up with that "Dishonored Level Venice (italy) " ;P ... even the audience was not sure when to clap, when to cheer or what to do ... Im not one of those 30mill. reg. destiny 1 players and if Bungies want´s me to hop in they have to deliver/show me more than that. Based on that only the low pc price of the game will make me start playing ... not on my radar for $70. According to most destiny players, Bungie sucks hard on storytelling ... so was wondering if A) should i get now destiny 1 for cheap and carry over my items to destiny 2? b) is destiny 1 worth it for single player/duo gamers that dont give a wet willy/fart about pvp and are more into exploration/world immersion
As far as I'm aware, none of your items carry over. Maybe armour, I'm not sure so if you're playing Destiny 1 it'll be just to enjoy the gameplay. Story is fairly short and not particularly good. The lore of Destiny is where it's at but those are in grimoir cards so if you wanna know the lore I'd suggest reading up on sites where people have gathered all the lore info (It's actually really interesting imo). Gameplay wise it's one of the best made this gen. It's just really fun to play with great mechanics. If you want it just for the story then I'd say don't bother but if you're gonna do end game content like strikes or raids (if you have enough players to raid) and can get it for a cheap price then I'd say go for it. Otherwise, with Destiny 2 in coming, I wouldn't really bother.
No items carry, none not even paid items such as dances moves, sparrows or emotes. There is no reason to purchase destiny and from what Ive seen on console anyway no reason to purchase the sequal either as they basically just downgrade pvp to 4v4 from 6v6 and did nothing visually while make us pay 60$ for DLC content. Everything Smith said has really made me shy away from saying its a purchase for me.
edit: gotcha, thanks for the answer. :)
A) should i get now destiny 1 for cheap and carry over my items to destiny 2? You can't carry over your items or your characters. It's basically a brand "new" game. Edit: Sorry, I didn't read far enough to see that you had already been answered.
Destiny 1 is limited by it's being tied to the legacy systems (360 & PS3). Having Destiny 2 on only the current gen systems an PC will make it much more advanced in terms of performance, visuals, sound and size of the universe. Personally, the fact that the planets will be much larger in scope and detail make this a sequel with getting.
"Destiny 2 - Watch 26 Minutes of Spectacular PS4 Pro Gameplay Showing The Inverted Spire Strike" Same engine Still 30fps No dedicated servers "p2p servers" Same menus Looks exactly like Destiny 1 Destiny 2 could've passed as "DLC" Far from spectacular if you ask me.
its a new engine devs have stated that numerous time
The game looks good gameplay-wise, nothing special about it, but hey it is an MMO and those are hard to market and take time to sink in anyway! I can understand students and people with super steady jobs and easy routine life to sink their teeth into this. For me gaming is more about less engaging experience where you can put the controller down at anytime and do something else with your children or family after work. Also, this better have a good story, Halo 1 and 2 were something special, Bungie has yet to touch that level of quality again. (Side note: It would be spectacular if this website would stop using superlatives. Everything is fantastic, great, phenomenal or unbelievable. Journalistic qualities are low when every single article is overly positive. Please just report news with substance and message, and stop trying to shock with every article, it gets very old very fast.)
Doesn't matter if the gameplay is different and the content is worth the price tag now does it
And how many COD new versions/actually just DLC have you bought?
Yeah pretty much lol.
its annoying when every sequel people act like they expected some entirely different game in 2 years. this should be exactly what was expected. its a 60$ new version of a game. The way they handled the dlc for the last game makes me refuse to pay full price for this one though.
Sucks that Bungie is stuck with 30fps on PS PRO :( They could easily get it to 60fps on the Pro...
lol Bungie has no shame on calling this Destiny 2 that it looks and plays exactly as the first one from years ago.
I'm sorry but the majority of games plays the same as their predecessor simply because it's the same game but next iteration.
While I agree with what you said, it's bad in this case because Destiny players had to pour so much money into the game to get enough content for it to even equal a full game, but none of their items or anything carry over whatsoever. IMO that's a slap in the face to dedicated players. They could have easily used the first game as a base and supported it for the entire console generation. They should have done a PC release, a major update called Destiny "2.0" or whatever, and released an expansion. Even if the expansion was $60 at least everything would carry over. They could even separate the story part of the expansion ($20) from the multiplayer part ($40) or let people purchase them in a bundle ($50). It doesn't bode well for this type of game when it only lasts 2 and a half years. I know Destiny isn't a full fledged MMO so it's a different case, but World of Warcraft has been using the same game for 13 years. Starting over and throwing away all the investment that people have already put into it is not a good way to sell a game like Destiny.
I saw screen shots before I watched the reveal and I they looked just like Destiny 1 and then so did the trailers. I'm certain gameplay is gonna be just as fun and great as the first but I am wondering whether if everything that gets added is gonna seem like a splatoon 2 scenario where it could literally just add on to the original rather than a whole new game.
Yea Im disappointed it's not a racing Sim now
No it doesn't you fool, maybe if you were there and actually played the game and saw the graphical difference first hand and not through a Youtube converted video you'd know. Not only that the controls have been changed to include a special power move and jumping is now a long hover. HALO was same game pretty much with a new story each time, with some small gameplay changes and no one bitch about that.
I know I think the exactly same thing every time I see video of a new COD, Battlefield, Madden, Forza, etc.
Sure is a $60 add-on
Man I wanted to be impressed by this, but man it looks the same as the original. Hopefully it reviews well and leaves people with some damn good impressions so I can convince myself to buy it. Perhaps the beta will away me, considering the Destiny 1 beta was pretty much the full game with locked content.
what exactly were you expecting to see to make you happy though? The gameplay in destiny was always great, so im not sure what you guys thought you were going to see.
Its true the game seem without any evolution on graphics, but the first was launched at 2014. This doesnt make sense, because now there isnt the PS3 or 360 version!!! What the hell were they thinking.
They were thinking to focus on PC and hope to gain another 30 million players, thats why there is no Ps4 Pro Support. They focused on making the game work on PC in 4k, uncapped and in 21:9. Ps4 Pro can easily handle Destiny at 1080p and 60fps they just dont want to put the time in to do. This also means Scorpio will not see any benefit either which will be a real shame considering that things going to cost major $$$$.
It will be in 4K on PS4 Pro according to PS Blog.
Rather see some PC gameplay, but while I didn't play much of the original this looks rather similar (although what sequel doesn't)
Title is misleading.... This is Destiny 1
Destiny hate comment is misleading....... this is hate for Destiny 2 even though it sounds just like the hate we've all heard for Destiny 1.
1 was good to a point.... This literally looks the same
Was that it?? Looks nothing different than the first one except perhaps better graphics....does beg the question; what exactly has bungie done to appease fans
Dualshockers loves Playstation so of course everything on Sony hardware is spectacular
EVERYBODY loves Playstation. It's the best console. I thought that was obvious
Eh, they seem to love using hyperbolical adjectives for everything, regardless of platform. They even wrote the article "Why I No Longer Care About Resolutions and Framerates in 2017, Thanks to the Switch." Gotta get those clicks somehow.
Nay Sayers will always be nay Sayers... Lol. Amazing... 3 years later and these children still talking crap.
This game will still sell millions watch. These few people on here won't change that fact. Just enjoy the game that you want. That's why we have many games to choose from. No one can tell you what you should like. End of story.
Some of you might want to get your eyes checked. There are significant improvements to lighting and particle effects. The textures on everything are better quality , though I will admit the environments shown could have been a little more impressive. Also, why wouldn't Destiny 2 look similar to Destiny 1. It's the sequel to Destiny 1. What should it look like? Borderlands? Uncharted? Maybe people wanted a Destiny platformer instead of a fps?..I don't get it. I am however disappointed with no 60fps, and no dedicated servers. Those are 2 big fails they should have made sure happen. Relying on another person to host just isn't good enough a lot of times.
Even games like Borderlands and Uncharted would change things up for the new iteration, improve upon things, add new features. This though looks the exact same.. the interface, gameplay and mission structure, even the loading screen that people got tired of. I'm seeing very little improvements or anything to draw in new players, or surprise long time players. And that for a $60 price tag, yeah we'll see how that goes
Neither of those games made massive game changing improvements from 1 to 2. They were for the most part the same games with new missions, maybe a new mechanic or two, and a new story. Just like Destiny 2 and pretty much every sequel ever. I don't get why people think it should be 100% different. It wouldn't be Destiny if they changed every aspect of the game. Destiny 2 does add new features btw, I will just assume you didn't actually what the reveal if you can even say that.
looks exactly the same as the first one. thanks, pass.
How the might have fallen. Lock it down, Destiny 2 will flop big time.
While I wasn't as impressed by D2 as I hoped to be, people said that exact same thing about D1 and that was anything but a flop.
D1 was that huge next game from the Halo creators. That alone sold the game. Now we know the game.
What? Almost no one said the first Destiny would flop. It may have had it's skeptics in terms of how it would do critically, but pretty much everyone thought it was the second coming of Christ. It was one of the first big next-gen games and the hype for it was through the roof. It wasn't until the game had come out and sold a crazy ton that people turned around and were upset they'd been told it was more than what it really was.
There were tonnes of people saying Destiny was a flop. N4G had a crazy negative community surround the game, trolling every article they could.
@ninsigma, AFTER the game released people said it was a flop because of its critical reception. Sales-wise it was anything but a flop. Before the game came out you could barely say anything skeptical about the game without getting ripped to shreds.
We do know the game, and we also know that millions have been playing it non stop. It's still massive.
You're such a damned fool. The first was mega successful and this one will be as well. 100% certain it will NOT flop. I'm most likely not going to get it, but stop being an imbecile.
destiny is one of the most played games. what are you talking about
I doubt it will flop, it still has a large following.
Wow, the scale is crazy, that whole strike seemed like it was bigger than earth's moon. I'm really ready for this game
I'm sorry I will have to pass on this
Anit nothing spectacular about 30fps on a shooter especially when it's on the pro. This is bs. Pure bs. I'm gonna have to pass on this game..
Every time I read something about this game everybody's over hyping it, is the same damn game as the first one, just overpriced dlc.
Every shooter get's over hyped these days. It's got to be the most overrated genre in gaming right now.
I wasn't particularly interested in the first game, and this one seems like more of the same. I suppose if you're a fan of the first game then you may like D2, but I can't see many gamers who passed on the first game picking this one up.
I loved the destiny beta, but didn't get into the game when i got it. I'm going to re-install for a few games, but i can't be bothered with expansions and looting....will i be able to jump into MP and compete without leveling up ? I've found Halo 5 to be much more enjoyable and consumer friendly. It has so much variety at face value.
Yes you can jump into pvp at a low level and compete with low level guns..but it sounds like Destiny just isn't for you.
