Destiny is Bungie's newest game that comes to you from Bungie and is the first of many games to come from the Bungie and Activision partnership. The game was first teased in Halo 3 ODST and then back in November when some new screens for the game was released. Destiny will be making its way to the PS3, but is rumored to release on it after next gen consoles release. It will also be on next gen systems as well. The reveal came from a trailer that was released.
Today as the thread title states Bungie has finally revealed their new game Destiny. They revealed it today through a new trailer that contains a lot of details on the game. The new trailer shows off the beautiful world of Destiny by showing off some locations in the game. Destiny has been revealed to be a persistent-world console shooter. The game will allow players to create and customize their identities and gear. Destiny will require an internet connection to play on all platforms and will have no subscription fee. Below is the trailer that was released by Bungie on the details of the game.
Here are some other details:
"If you fail, the last light of civilization will go out," a teaser trailer featuring concept art at the reveal event promised. The world of Destiny doesn't rely on a single hero for salvation, but a community of Guardians, all exploring the galaxy in an effort to save the system and craft their unique legends.
Bungie has made significant investments in the game's multiplayer component to emphasize cooperative play. Single-player purists will be able to quest as a Guardian throughout the galaxy; however, in order to "realize the vision of the game," Destiny will require a constant internet connection on all platforms regardless of play style.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg says that maintaining the vision of Bungie's shooter is key to the always-on requirement, adding "that's the only reason for that restriction." As for player investment to enter the world of Destiny, Hirshberg says that there are "absolutely no plans to charge a subscription fee."
As players explore the world of Destiny, Bungie's network code will constantly work to match players within proximity of each other when they enter public areas (such as quest areas, towns and more). While the concept sounds like an MMO, Bungie says players shouldn't expect to see town squares littered with hundreds of players. "[The] amount of players you see is design controlled," Bungie COO Pete Parsons said, adding it's "not about stuffing as many people in there as possible."
Bungie teased how it will bring the new franchise to multiple devices, showcasing a planned mobile app that would give players statistical information, background on their adventures and notifications of in-world events and invites.Source: Joystiq.
