Twitter was a buzz yesterday with the release of some new game footage from the creative minds from the people of Bungie and Activision. As you are all aware Bungie and Activision are both known for hugely popular and successful gaming titles that have not only made millions of dollars but have impressed fans for years. With these two successful companies working together it is no wonder my twitter feed wouldn’t die down.
For those of you who missed the twitter action yesterday, for whatever reason, we have the scope for you. Destiny is said to deliver a new experience to first person shooter fans. You will get to experience an all new adventure that takes place in a “bold new universe” that will feature cooperative, competitive, public and community activities.
So what does this “bold new universe” and “new experience” mean? And what kind of FPS title will this actually be? By the sounds of it Destiny is going to be a MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) Shooter. A MMO being a vast and open world with multiple players at one time, in which you can play solo or in small co-operative groups. Destiny will require an Internet connection but will be free of the ever popular MMO monthly subscription fee. And since Bungie refers to Destiny as a “console shooter” it is safe to say it will not be available for PC.
In Destiny you will play as a character whom is a “Guardian of the last city on Earth”. You will be able to use special powers and explore ruins of outer space, like the red dunes of Mars and jungles of Venus. Your mission is simple, defeat Earth’s enemies.
Check out a list of Game features, new screens and the reveal trailer below. Hurry up your Destiny awaits…
- Brave New World: you will be drawn into a universe filled with heroes and legends. Crafted by Bungie one can expect big things from Destiny.
- Your Legend: You will be able to create your own legend as you journey alone or with friends through the solar system. On your travels you will acquire more power, weapons and gear.
- Adventure Awaits: Fans will love the customization’s as they can personalize and upgrade everything from how you look to how you fight with an endless combination of armor and weapons. You will be able to take everything along with you in every mode. You will also be able to go back to town for your important 3R’s; repair, rearm and refuel, all to prepare yourself for your next mission.
- Connected Universe: More than a disc in your disc drive, Destiny takes you to a universe filled with other players. As it grows and expands so does the story along with destinations to travel, activities to experience and rewards to earn.
