Bungie just released a new batch of beautiful screenshots of its upcoming shooter Destiny, and three new trailers featuring the classes available in the game, on top of new information
This game is looking really good, and those weapons are sweeeet.
only thing that keeps me from being hyped, is first-person view only, or am I wrong?
Graphically it looks bad just like how Halo 3 was one of the worst looking but highly rated games of the last gen. This game is pretty much gonna be critically viewed on the gameplay and online component. It's not gonna impress visually.
@dmitrijs88 It's just like any Halo game, the shooting will be obviously in first-person, but throughout the game will be constantly play on third-person perspectives. Like: When driving a vehicle, a ship,etc. What I'm trying to say is, there's a full rendered character behind the gun your holding. So you aren't simply a floating camera. @Mikes What ?
Your wrong the release one they did was third person.
What? Graphically bad? Its among one of the best looking FPSs releasing this year. But judging it from a compressed YouTube video will taint the visuals of most games. Good thing PS4 plays get in on the beta in a few months!
It's like Halo and Warframe had a baby?! /s Seriously speaking though...Bungie's art style hasn't changed much from Halo. Not that that's a bad thing. Personally I didn't mind Halo's art style - short of the overuse of "bloom" lighting. I am still mixed on Destiny. I'm sort of excited, but also a little apprehensive. I guess I just don't want to get my hopes up and expect too much from the game and end up disappointed once it comes out. Thus far the game looks pretty impressive and stands to be a fun FPS, but there could be some load balancing issues with the weapons that may need ironing out once the game releases. Halo had its share of overpowered (Halo's "Sniper" pistol anybody?) and nerf'ed weapons, Destiny will mostly be prone to the same problems.
I believe it started out as a third person shooter then went to fps. Which pisses me off because I really was hoping this would be third person view, or at least have a toggle option preference of switching and playing in first or third person view. (I really hope for the toggle option) I dont care if its third person driving vehicles, or anything non-combat. I cannot stand and just flat out hate the fps view now in these action type games and/or mmos. there are just too damn many games with this view. They dont hold my interest for very long and become real boring, real fast. I want to see my character in third person view...combat, see the detail, animations, when duck, dodge, roll, strafe, jump, stand and piss, teabag, whatever in addition to driving to driving vehicles, fiddling with objectives etc. Not just look at my character during cut scenes and looking at a weapon bobbing side to side playing the game.
I think all you people asking for third person view don't understand just how much difference FPS vs TPS makes in the gameplay style. It would be radically different, and mostly from subtle changes. Simple things like jumping, or platforming, or even aiming would be affected by third person animations. If you're a halo player you would know how much those things matter. It's hard for me to explain, i guess you'd just have to play to understand. Just compare popular TPS with FPS games. Good comparison would be Mass affect, which is worlds apart from Destiny in terms of gameplay. Firstly most TPS games use cover systems and muchh slower gameplay, ones without cover are not nearly as accurate. Secondly, multilayer rarely works right with third person, ones that do work like gears of war or uncharted are slow paced and the gameplay is wayy different than FPS games. You honestly think those game could work the same simply by changing camera view? NO chance.
@MikesLemonade Halo 3 graphics wasn't bad at all and Destiny obviously takes after the artwork and graphics of Halo games as it is the same company who made them Its no Crytek or Quantic Dream graphics but Destiny looks pretty good
Don't forget just how much open world you can explore in this game. For a big open world title, this game is going to have some pretty stellar graphics.
This game looks amazing to me. The gameplay, the look, the setting and story, visuals, art style, environment,locations, lore, everything about this feels like they "did it right". Can't wait to learn more info at E3. This is the game I'll eventually be buying a PS4 for. ( other games as well)
theres no doubt that the PS4 version is gonna be the best one
Just wow... cant believe some people.
yeah it look incredible. i just worry that there wont be enough visually different weapons. just stat differences. thats kinda my fears im most of these style of games tbh lol. i love finding something that looks visually unique :)
can't wait to play this on ps4, hopefully the loot system will be well balanced and rewarding
Yes please! Looking forward to it. Does anyone notice that Bungie has a bit of shape fetish? (check the pic)
Kinda like how Nate Fox has a tower fetish.
Mass Effect eventually developed a lens flare fetish. :P Bungie can make whatever shapes they like. Destiny is going to have an incredible style, methinks.
I'm pretty sure most planets are round. Does this mean God (if one believes in such a thing) has a "shape fetish"? And I've never seen an actual ring planet, but Saturn among other planets have rings around them. Most celestial bodies are round, so I'm not sure what you mean by "Bungie has a shape fetish".
The picture should be pretty obvious. Ring circle sphere. Never said it was a bad thing.
wow that looks amazing,the 4th video was kinda blockey.the fist 3 were awesome.
Will be fabulous when it lands, one of the years best.
I always think of Mass Effect (Biotic powers) when I see Destiny in action.
There's an armor that looks a lot like a Quarian
There does seem to be some similarities there. The biotic powers and the abilities in Destiny do seem very similar. Perhaps both teams looked toward the same source of sci-fi material for inspiration.
I totally agree with you, If you had to speculate a source what would you say?
@liquidhalos The Bible?
I don't know why but I don't like this game
Agreed. I loved the Halo series but this game just looks meh...
really like the character design of the enemies in that last video. environment also looks very good.
Hmmmmm.......those graphics are looking kinda weak... Hope these are from an old build or something...
I'm not seeing what is supposed to be so great about this game ?
It's bungie, seeing will be much different than playing i can guarantee you. Those of us that know that are excited beyond belief.
The name 'Bungie' means nothing to me, and many others. Halo to some of us is the most over-rated game around.
Well if it doesn't mean anything to you then move on. You asked that you're not seeing what's supposed to be so great, and I explained what Bungie and halo fans see. I'm not gonna bother going into detail about what's good about bungie or these types of games, because it'll take an essay. I'm sure i could say the same about many games you probably like, but I know better. For example, Minecraft (not saying it's a game you like) is one of the most popular games right now. "Seeing" it from videos obviously makes a lot of people think wtf is this bunch of blocks and pixels, even playing it you think wtf running around mining stuff, what a crap game. But EXPERIENCING is a muchh different thing. If after experiencing it you don't like it then it's just not your type of game. It's a matter of perspective, taste, interest, preference, and many other things. And everyone has their own combination of that. And I'm saying all this without even playing minecraft, you see what I'm doing. Just because I haven't experienced it doesn't mean it sucks, I just have the sense to understand why others like it.
Ok so this looks sick
Only news I need is when does the beta drop?
@theshredded 'ROFL!!!this games looks like a turd haha' I take it we won't be running into you on this game then? ...I think that's good for just about everybody :) Anyways.... After Watchdogs, Destiny is my next game!! I've always wanted a game like this. I can't frickin' wait!!!
Am I the only one that cringes and immediately thinks 'douche bag' whenever somebody criticizes visuals?
Yes my friend. Everytime
For those people saying that the graphics are subpar, can you please show me what you mean? For me, I love the star wars influenced art direction. It has a ton of enviromental variety and really great lighting and color. If I were to nitpick at anything it would be in the character animation which lacks subtlety or maybe it's the lack of object-based motion blur.
for a game that's gonna run on 4 platforms the graphics look good to me. People need to realize that the x360/ps3 are holding things back as Publishers just can NOT leave that huge install base out just yet. but overall Destiny looks good. "buh buh buh it's all about teh gameplay" remember. lol
People who are criticizing the visuals aren't considering that Destiny has a massive world that the players can explore. If the maps are so large, then obviously graphical fidelity would take a hit.
So they show a clip where the grass is moving, and after that what it looks like ingame fight with the "big frog robot" and grass is just steady steady
Dem cross-gen graphics for ya.
My XB1 awaits
Really Not seeing the hype here
It's cause it's for ps4 too if it was xbox exclusive, this game wouldn't even be looked at. Instead hated
Nothing to do with platforms, just think the game looks like nothing special in terms of the gameplay. I mean it is going to be the same as pretty much any other FPS.
Warlock all the way
I'm looking forward to the game. On the other hand I'm kind of annoyed by the character design. When I remember correctly Destiny is a 10 year project. I don't want to play 10 years with a character who doesn't even have a face. The whole helmet thing is stupid imo.
Looking good. I hope the story/ coop aspects are great. Standard multiplayer with TDM and more I dont care about. Gonna get it on PS4 when the game is released!
Maybe I'm just getting too old for games, but I just have ZERO interest in this game so far...
This will be all the rage at every 4th grade playground nearest you. "Supers"......really .
The new site is awesome. I couldn't stop visiting it today.
Having this as a TPS instead of a FPS would be a terrible idea. Bungie have been pimping the weapons (customisable, unique, rare ect) without being a FPS a lot of that customizable stuff becomes null and void. What use is upgrading from iron sights to an epic holo or zoom scope is you never use them? A TPS always ends up with you using a reticule and scopes become irrelevant. Also there is no way you can be as accurate in TPS as you can in a well setup FPS. I just ends up being a way less hard core shooter. And Destiny has always been a proper shooter at heart. It's Bungie after all!!
FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP ahhhhhhh skeet skeet skeet! This game is going to be epic! GO BUNGIE... and activision.
Ummm.. I don't see the appeal of this game other than the brand name of Bungie on it.
What's so good about Bungie ? they did Halo, but too many of us that game is nowhere near as good as Mass Effect, and other games out there.
Exactly, not even the Bungie brand name means much to me, especially since most of the original team is gone. You can't just trust a developer by name, since the members keep being replaced.
