Destiny

Bungie officially revealed Destiny, the latest project currently in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from the company behind the Halo franchise.

Destiny is a highly-social, science-fiction first-person shooter. The game will require an always-on internet connection.

Set in the future, Destiny takes place in a world where humans are nearly extinct. A mysterious sphere called the Traveler saves mankind. Surviving humans live in the game’s main city with the Traveler floating above.

[adsense250itp]Players will take on the role of a Guardian protecting the city and performing quests around the galaxy. It is up to a community of Guardians to harness the power of the Traveler and save what remains of humankind from alien threats.

In Destiny, gamers will be able to create and customize their in-game appearance. Hunter, Titan and Warlock are three character classes available for players.

The game will encourage cooperative play. Bungie’s network code will match players together within public areas. Unlike a massively multiplayer online game (MMO), Destiny will feature a controlled amount of players. Solo missions will also be available.

Bungie is aiming to make Destiny a highly immersive experience that spreads across several platforms. A social app for smartphones and mobile devices will help players keep track of stats and let them know when friends are online.

Destiny is part of a 10-year publishing deal between Bungie and Activision. Bungie handed the reigns of the highly successful Halo franchise over to 343 Industries after completing Halo: Reach. Halo 4, the first game in the series without Bungie, was released in November to great success both critically and commercially.

Despite having the feel of an MMO, Bungie said there are no plans to charge a subscription fee for Destiny. The developer said the hope is for the story of Destiny to expand over the next 10 years.

No release date for Destiny was announced. It is unlikely to release this year.

The first official video for Destiny can be watched below.
