Bungie, the creator of video-game franchise Halo, unveiled today that it is bringing its next project to Sony's consoles. The new first-person shooting game, called Destiny, is coming to PlayStation 3 and the newly unveiled PlayStation 4, the team from Bungie said onstage at Sony's PS4 event today in New York. Activision, which is publishing Destiny, characterizes the game as the first "shared world shooter" game, and the Bungie team said there will be exclusive content for the PlayStation community.
It's a persistent world. You can watch the sun set and rise and the hours fly by. You'll see inclement weather like a brief flash of lightning that I saw all two seconds of.
