Bungie has released a new set of screens for Destiny, while confirming that the game will not feature NPC companions.
Speaking over on the game’s official site, Bungie also discussed the scope of the upcoming beta and revealed some details regarding crafting.
“Why would you want to recruit a Non-Player Character, when the world of Destiny is populated with Guardians?” asked Bungie, responding to a question about companion NPCs.
“Every hero from the last safe city on Earth will be driven by a living, thinking player with a racing pulse and an itchy trigger finger,” the studio explained.
“You’ll come across characters bound to the software, of course, but your allies will be the other players who join you on your adventures.”
Regarding the game’s upcoming beta, Bungie said it will be, “Enough to tell us what we need to know, but not so much that you’ll be left with no more worlds to conquer.
“Ever served Bungie as a beta tester? This will be the biggest proving grounds we’ve ever opened up to you before we were go for final launch.”
On the subject of crafting, Bungie added, “The Tower will be a place where you can restore and upgrade your weapons and gear.
“Some of the loot you capture on your missions will be items that you can equip or wield. Other treasures that you reap from the action you sow will be raw materials that you need to upgrade your inventory.
“The best thing is that your rewards will be pre-destined. The fates know what you need, and your fortunes will favor the brave.”
You can see the new screens below. Destiny comes to Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9th.
