what 'is' destiny ?

hi all,

ive watched the destiny trailer and read some previews, but am a little confused :S

to, from the trailer to me it seems that this is a sort of runescape/starcraft/cod fps sort of game :S

im confused because ive seen the trailer and towards the end you see fps stuff, but then people are saying about requiring a constant online connection :S

the trailer makes it look a LOT more than just a campaign and multiplayer game.

Help? :S

"Destiny has elements of a first-person shooter, the Halo-style experience Bungie built its reputation on, elements of an open world sandbox and elements of a persistent world."

Also yes it will need a constant internet connection to be played.

Here you go.

Here is a quick FAQ from IGN has a lot of info about the game.

Destiny: Quick FAQ - IGN

Selections.
Quote:
Does it require an Internet connection then?
Yes. (at all times)

Is there a subscription fee?
No.

What platforms is it coming out for?
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, “future generation technology” (read: Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4).

What does it remind you of?
A bit of Planetside 2, a dash of Borderlands 2, and of course Halo.

When and where is it set?
Post-apocalyptic earth. It’s not nuclear fallout or anything this time. Here’ humanity was pushed to the brink after a collapse and rescued by a mysterious force called the Traveler, a giant globe/moon thing that hovers over earth’s last great city and protects humans. Now we’ve rebounded enough to start exploring the galaxy again, but bad dudes are out there looking to keep us on the endangered species list.

When is it coming out?
Unknown. We previously assumed fall 2013 as an Xbox 360, PS3, and next-gen launch title. But Activision recently announced that it does not expect anything from Bungie in its 2013 fiscal guidance to investors.

What the heck does “shared world shooter” mean?
Basically, it’s an MMO, but you can play the entire game solo or in small co-op groups.

Who do I play as?
A generic hero called a Guardian.

Are there character classes?
At least three: Titan (big guns), Hunter (sniper rifles/stealth), and Warlock (magic).

Will there be character customization?
Yes, loads of it. Gear, weapons, you name it.

Are there vehicles?
Yep, plenty. The two we saw art of were the Pike (seems similar to Halo’s Ghost) and the Spider Tank).

Where are some of the places I can go?
Every planet in our solar system: Earth, the Moon, Mars, Saturn, etc.

How about competitive multiplayer?
That’s definitely in there too, though you’ll have to volunteer to do it, i.e. you won’t suddenly get shot in the back of the head by some griefer on Xbox Live.
Quote:
Parsons said some kind of Destiny experience will be available on mobile devices, on which you'll do "meaningful things... maybe things you can only do on a device but are then paid off inside the Destiny universe."
On PC version
Quote:
Parsons said: "We would absolutely love to be on the PC. If you talk to the people upstairs, we play it on all platforms. So, stay tuned." No mention was made of a Wii U version.
Other things:
- Supposedly Bungie has stated there will be dungeons and "6 man" raids.
- Some kind of loot system
- "Social" emphasis
- No lobby or matchmaking
- Living world

I thought it looked like a mix of Borderlands and Halo. A bit of Star Wars too.

Its Borderlands in a serious, Halo-like universe. With a lot more features thrown in as well like those public events.

Take Halo's familiar FPS features, take Borderlands "open-world-RPG" elements, take any MMO's ability to support dozens+ players in the same world at the same time.

You have Destiny.

after seeing the gameplay it looks AWESOME a cross between halo and borderlands. but before seeing gameplay i wasnt really sure about how it would turn out to be. now i know it will be EPIC

In my opinion, this looks like a first-person Defiance with a stronger narrative and better side-missions that don't just involve finding and pressing a button.

Sounds great to me.

My biggest issues with Defiance were:
- Crappy Graphics
- Boring Missions
- Third Person
- Boring Story

Looks like they fix'd it.

After I saw the trailer this game became my number one purchase for X1. Love Borderlands and been playing Halo a lot as well.

Just hoping there will be split-screen. Waiting for news...

Defiance's biggest issue is it sucked. It's not fun. It's balanced backwards. And poorly developed by a lazy team of developers who couldn't be bothered to change patch notes for separate versions of the game lol.
Wanna know how excited I was for Defiance? I bought the 150 dollar ultimate edition because I was super sure it was gonna be soooooooooo great.
Gackt made a bad....bad call.

Destiny looks like nothing but fun to me, and nothing like Defiance lol.

Yea, and since it's made by Bungie (Who have a good track record) it'll most likely be amazing.

i feel destiny is going to be amazing, it's going to be what Defiance wanted to be

trion(defiance) simply isn't financially strong enough to be able to spend the money to make the game run the way it should

bungie, on the other hand, has the financial means to be able to make destiny run and play the way it should

also, a mix of borderlands and halo sounds AMAZING

Do we know yet if there will be cross platform multi-player, even just between the 360 and Xbox One would do me.

Nope. I know of ZERO games that have any cross-platform play (not even Titanfall).

It pretty much looks like Halo to me. Either way I'm not really interested.

I'm not a big Halo fan- actually-- not at all, but the multiplayer aspect that's been cropping up on a lot of games lately- makes me interested in the persistent online world.

Pretty sure counter strike had PS3 and PC cross-platform.

Counter-Strike has PS3/PC cross-play. Additionally, Shadowrun was cross-play between PC and 360 and Final Fantasy XI was cross-play with 360, PS2, and PC.

It's been confirmed that no games will work between 360 and Xbox One because of the difference in network structuring, but I wouldn't completely eliminate the possibility of crossplay between the XB1 and eventual PC version whenever it's finally announced. It would be nice if they could find a way to cross-play with the PS4 as well, but unless they host their own servers like FFXI did, this will never be allowed by Sony or Microsoft. Nevermind how beneficial that would be to the gaming community. They would rather keep us segregated and fighting amongst ourselves than pushing the industry to a new level of tolerance and maturity.
