A while back Geoff told us how much space we could expect Destiny to hog on your PS4's HDD. Now there are leaks regarding the size of the game on Xbox One and it's... as we expected.
Despite receiving games that are bigger and better, we still feel cheated by the high prices of games combined with the ever expanding use of DLC or paid expansions. Collector's and Limited Editions seek to help on this front, and I think they might just be worth your money.
Destiny is literally around the corner. I'm extremely excited to jump back into Bungie's online adventure on Xbox One with a few friends, but we're going to be missing out on quite a bit on content that only Sony players will get access to. Consider me jealous.
One of the more common aspects of loot-heavy games like Borderlands, Diablo and most MMO’s is the ability to trade gears and equipment with your friends. It’s always nice when somebody has some bit of loot that’s just perfect for your character and gives it to you instead of selling it. You won’t be able to do this in Destiny.
Release dates are almost irrelevant for games that require a constant online connection. Sure you could physically get the game on launch day, but you’re at the mercy of the servers when it comes to actually starting. So with Destiny on the horizon, when exactly will we be able to hop in?
If you tooled around in the Destiny beta, then there’s no denying that this game is built on the DNA of Halo, with that sensation extending to the Crucilbe and various multiplayer modes. And that’s a good thing. Halo was home to some of the best multiplayer on the planet, with custom matches paving the way for a massively creative Forge to build all kinds of games. While Destiny won’t have that level of PvP at launch, expect to see something done in the near future.
Destiny might not have as many planets as, say, No Man's Sky, but that doesn't mean much if the planets themselves are large, detailed and fun to explore. We've seen Earth, a little bit of Mars and now Bungie has released the first look at a lush, tropical Venus.
I was booked in for an hour of hands-on with Destiny at Gamescom, and I was excited to get to play something new; some little bit of hitherto unseen bit of Destiny, and share that experience with all of you. My excited turned to disappointment when I sat down in my session, only to realise I’d be playing bits from the beta again.
How big are the pre-orders for Destiny? World-record setting in fact. But there’s more to Destiny than just numbers. There are also matches to be won in the Crucible. Check it out!
The Destiny Beta was an awesome experience for most of you - you made your perfect guardian (or three) and go in on all the exploration and destruction. You maybe even bonded with your guardian; you did create him/her after all. Well, it’s time to shed a tear. Your guardian is dead.
Those of you who played the Beta for Destiny know just how slick and polished the game already is. It not only plays well, but it also looks and feels very ready. So, how much will it change before launch? Activision says not a lot.
The Destiny Beta was a big deal. It's gotten tons of attention and helped the developers fix the game in ways they couldn't have anticipated without millions of people pushing capacity to its limits. Now Bungie has rewarded us with an infographic.
Destiny's beta restricted players to a rather low level of 8, meaning that you probably maxed out your character just a few hours into playing. That got a lot of people talking, considering the level cap was thought to be only 20. How was Bungie going to keep progression going with such a low cap? Well, because things change completely at that level.
Destiny is going to have several flavours of gameplay modes when it launches. Exploration, story missions, the Crucible and Strike missions to name a few. But it’s the Raid missions that will truly test players out, as these high-level events are crafted for those gamers who can work as an actual team.
With the amount of hype around this Beta, I can't even imagine how excited people will be when Destiny finally launches. It's a seriously fun game, and we gave away a bunch of codes so people could play. But now, you can get in on the action even without a code. Of course, there are still some "standard requirements".
