The latest issue of Game Informer has dropped, and thanks to the magic of it being PRINT, it had plenty of details on the upcoming star-based trooping game Destiny from Bungie. Do you want to know more?
Remember Alexander Velicky? He's the 19-year-old who made Falskaar, an enormous 25-hour Elder Scrolls: Skyrim expansion, as a job application to Bethesda. Well, he got a job, but not with Bethesda.
Anyone who pre-orders Destiny will get access to the Beta. We've known this for a while now, and anyone who is amped about the game should totally jump on that bandwagon. But now, it seems that Bungie is forging a special relationship with Sony.
We’re pretty much done for the year, with big releases. Battlefield, Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed having released. A few other games are on the way, but they aren’t as high profile as those examples. 2014 is where we pick up again, and Destiny is the big name game that I have my console eyes on. Pity PC gamers won’t get to experience it.
It’s been a bad year for games launching much vaunted online components this year. GTA V has had one hell of a rocky start so far, while Battlefield 4 is also home to numerous game-breaking bugs. Bungie has seen that, and obviously wants to avoid it for Destiny. So they’re throwing as many folks as possibly can into the beta.
Destiny is one of my most anticipated games coming in the next generation but at the same time it’s the one that scares me the most. I’m just not 100% sure they can pull of the epic scale that they are promising.
People love Beta codes - get in on a game from the beginning. Maybe you want it because you're a die hard fan, or because you're such a hipster you want to play a game before it was launched. In any event, Destiny looks awesome, and you could get a beta code to get in on it early.
Destiny is one of those games we keep hearing about but hasn't really gotten the hype treatment, yet. I suppose it's just a bit too far from launch for all the usual build up. However, this new trailer looks awesome, and gives info on how to get in on the beta.
Man, it must be swell to be Activision. They’ve got a ton of studios underneath them, and Call of Duty is a license to print money. EASY PEASY! Except, the company believes that it has taken far more risks lately, than people know about.
If there’s one thing that I’m digging about Destiny, it’s the style of that game. It’s got that space-knight hook and grand scope that looks simply gorgeous. And it’s all yours to customise when the game launches in 2014.
We got back from Gamescom yesterday, our heads all fuzzy from the travel and all that beer. We’ve played and seen a ton of games. We’re still busy trying to decide which ones tickled out fancies most – but the official Gamescom site has already picked its winners. I have to say, some of them make very little sense to me.
Quite clearly, the next-gen game that I’m most excited for is Destiny. And if anyone else says that I’m actually patiently waiting for Hello Kitty on Xbox One, then they’re a bunch of goddamn liars man! But seriously, Destiny is like Borderlands on sex drugs. Its got an online mode that will actually make it worthwhile, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Just thinking about playing a shooter online with other people makes me want to assume the fetal position and hold myself while ignoring the incessant demands for sandwiches. Bungie's new MMO shooter, Destiny, has a plan to combat the trolls.
If they get it right, Bungie's Destiny could be an incredible game that reshapes the genre - and the entire industry. We are psyched about it, and it would seem that Activision is expecting it to be their next cash cow.
Destiny is one of the games shown off at E3 that looked awesome, but hasn't gotten much hype as of yet. The MMO shooter got our "best Shooter" award from E3, but what are they doing to take the genre in a new direction?
