Destiny is a game currently in the works by Bungie and is set for a 2014 release. They showed the game of at E3 with some gameplay and a nice trailer to go with it. At E3 the Bungie team showed off the Great Wall that was built to keep out the monsters which have come to evade. In the demo one Dev was playing as a warlock, one of the three guardians tasked to looking after the cities safety. The other two guardians are the Hunter and the Titan. The game allows players to build a unique character and upgrade making a powerful character that can fight with others against the hordes of monsters found in game. In the game there is a large orb that mysteriously floats above the city, named the traveller. Below the traveller is where the city is found, which is huddled in the safety of the traveller and the shields.
From what they showed the game looked really great and flowed seamlessly with a good amount of strategy needed to kill enemies. The game’s multiplayer seems to be focused around creating a “fire squad” this is where other players team up with you to take down enemies. Creating a squad of all classes is apparantly highly recommended as every class has different ways of bringing enemies down. Hunter using crossbows and other ranged weaponry, titan using great hammers and being able to take the damage and last but not least the warlock a mage who uses his powers to deal magic damage.
In the game there are four different types of enemies:
These relentless thieves seem driven by desperation and rage. They are crafty, but they usually give up their cover with their clattering and hissing. Most seem outfitted with some kind of shock dagger and pistol, and as far as we can gather, they seem to only have two arms, while other Fallen have four.
The truths about the Fallen chain-of-command are still making themselves known, but the Vandals appear to hold a higher ranking than the Dregs, and deadlier weapons, too. They often have long range capability, but their weapons take time to charge.
Fallen run in small packs, led by an individual Captain. There is no denying a Captain’s might; they are the fiercest of the Fallen. There is this sense of tattered nobility to them. You can see it in the way they carry themselves. They think they’re better than us. They believe that Earth belongs to them.
It’s been years since they first made their presence known at the Twilight Gap. While reports have them centered on or around Mars, the true might of the Cabal is still wrapped in speculation. Awaiting more reports from the Vanguard.
Overall I can’t wait for this game to come out. It’s beautiful graphics and what seems to be fun game play will easily create many hours of fun game time for me to enjoy. I seriously recommend keeping a track of this game and until it comes out in 2014 you can start by watching the E3 Demo below.
