Bungie MMO 'Destiny' may be a Steampunk shooter

SystemLink: "Take a seat; we've got a lot to get through here. Remember Bungie, of Halo fame? Well, forget Halo; it's done and dusted (at least on Bungie's side). The company are reported to be working on a new IP which they own - Activison publishes the game, yet Bungie outright owns the intellectual property. This new IP is rumoured to be called 'Destiny', and superannuation has dug up a few more details."

Absolutely delicious if true.

Seems a bit late in the day (for the game), I'd of thought they'd be well past design/concept stages.

Well I just hope The MMO is console based coding instead of the PC's

Don't care to much about the genre. More concerned about first-person vs third person and if we plan to see it on console. After those, let's hearing pricing. If a company plans to get me to play an MMO I am not paying anything on top of my gold subscription. I understand charging silver since they don't pay now but as a Gold member I shouldn't have to pay.

What's a Steampunk? Honest question

Agent_S3315d ago

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s. Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc. This technology may include such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne or real technologies like the computer but developed earlier in an alternate history.

Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" for such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analog computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace's Analytical engine.
