des·ti·ny (destinē): Noun 1. The events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future. Destiny, also a noun and newest title from ultra game companies Bungie and Activision, will surely happen to a particular group of gaming fans in the future. Yes, the developers behind Halo and Call of Duty are teaming up for a revolutionary first person shooter, Destiny, which also represents Bungie’s first title to make it to PlayStation platforms.
Just announced for the new PlayStation 4 at Sony’s 2013 Event, Destiny is bound to land on the new and upcoming Xbox 720, rumored to come out this fall. From the minor details, announcements and concept art already leaked, Destiny looks to be a beautifully cinematic and action packed adventure set hundreds of years in the future. In a post-apocalyptic world, man has one last city against a hostile alien race. This last safe city was built under a mysterious white moon-sized orb dubbed The Traveler. Alien races continue to seek out and destroy the last of humanity, and that’s where the story begins.
[adsense250itp]The Guardian, along with other heroes will fight for Earth’s final battles of survival. Countless adventures will take them across the galaxy in ruins across Mars, Venus and the Moon. Along the way, Bungie has added an MMO aspect so that players can fully customize their characters, and play in modes similar to WoW and Starcraft. What is known now is you can choose from at least three different classes for your Guardian: Hunter, Warlock and Titan. A solo campaign will center around Destiny’s main story, but players will be able to join a competitive, cooperative, social and public game open to the internet.
There is an experience for any kind of gamer in this never ending living social universe; meaning, when you leave the game and return at a later time, there will be no menu screen. The game will boot up right where you left off. Bungie also promises that the game will be for any skill level. Not to worry that this will be a game for kids, but that it will be accessible for those used to playing MMORPG’s and those that love FPS. Afterall, it’s a social game.
DLC has already been rumored to be spaced out for the next seven years. Different packs will be released in 2014, 2016 and 2020, making Destiny one of the longest games for continuous playing. With so much already implemented and to see, an asking price of $59.99 across both the Xbox 360, rumored 720, PS3 and now PS4 is more than fair. In summation: this game has the hype machine in full mode, with most gamers already concluding that it’s going to be awesome and will have an amazing re-play value.
More information and announcements are surely to be coming out in the next few months. Next generation consoles are coming and according to reports, Destiny is ready for them. Players can check out more and even pre-order the title now for your favorite console at the official Destiny website. You know you want to… it’s your Destiny!
