Bungie's new game (Destiny)

[b]UPDATED 2012/02/17:[/b]Official Destiny preorder website, link above. [url=http://au.ign.com/articles/2013/02/18/bungies-destiny-not-coming-in-2013]Destiny not out until 2014[/url] [b]TL;DR: From the Official Reveal:[/b] [url=http://www.destinythegame.com]Destiny Website (Official)[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwOUi4JDC4o]Destiny ViDoc[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbK1aWt1eHg]IGN LIve Stream recording of Bungie reveal[/url] [b]The premise ([url=http://www.destructoid.com/the-first-real-details-on-bungie-s-destiny-revealed-245007.phtml]snippet from Destructoid article, source link[/url])[/b] Destiny takes place in a distant future after a golden age for humanity where it has populated the solar system and beyond. Your story is after a horrible conflict where humanity was attacked by an unknown force and was near extinction. Some humans survived thanks to the Traveler, a big floating round entity that sacrificed itself and hangs above Earth where it made its last stand. People came together to rebuild a new city under the Traveler's protection, and soon humans once again ventured back into space to reclaim what was once theirs. Humans quickly discover a variety of alien creatures have taken up residence in their former territories, and the aliens are determined to be rid of humans.

Online-only 2. No subscription 3. No "main menu" 4. Matchmaking and game match ups done on the fly in-game, rather than through lobbies 5. Hub "public" zones that are all 3rd person. This is where you meet up with players, exchange loot, etc, etc. The one described in the news is on Earth, the Last City and mainly in a place called The Tower, but there are others on the other planets, too, apparently. One for Mars was suggested. 6. Raids/Dungeons 7. Game will seamlessly add players in and out of your co-op or solo adventure, think like Journey-style. 8. Takes place in a variety of locations: Earth, Venus, Mars, The Moon, rings of Saturn, Mercury, moons of Jupiter... more could be added 9. Each planet/location is treated as a "book" as far as story and structure is concerned. You can play and unlock new chapters within each planet's book. 10. You can get your own ship, and can customize it. Higher level = better ships. 11. Similarly, you can customize your character, appearance, skills probably, and weapons. Vehicles too. 12. Only human are said to be playable so far. 13. Three announced classes: Hunter (like a Rogue class I'd say), Titan (like Spartan I guess), and Warlock (magic user). Yes, there is magic. Space magic 14. No word on space combat or space travel, but if you get your own ship, I don't see why not. 15. Game will have no loading screens, no progress bars. Implying seamless travel from location to location. 16. Ties in with mobile apps and social networks, ie: set up parties and missions, get alerted of new chapters available, new locations, events, etc. Customize character... 17. Races are: Human, Vex (time travelling robots), Spiders Pirates, Cabal (rhino people), and some others 18. Faction Wars features, competitive hoppers, not very elaborated upon. 19. "Squads/Crews" look to be up to 6 people, but you can imagine that you could have pairings of multiple squads, or enemies.

FACTION WARS (Random Hopper) [b]EXTRAS ON SCREENSHOT[/b] 1. "Y" to Add Friends (button) 2. "My Squad" (like Halo roster) [b]EVERYTHING BELOW: My old speculation about Destiny from early 2012...[/b] [b][i]The Super Quick Version:[/i] Destiny will be a new hybrid genre with a single persistent universe that is cross platform, possibly cross generation and multi device enabled which mixes MMO, RPG, FPS & RTS elements.[/b] The quote from Bungie "Eventually it will become more the gamers than the developers and will take a life itself..." (can't remember the exact quote). I believe this snippet of information points towards a single persistent universe that all gamers participate within. [b][i]- TL;DR - The short version - Multi-platform (xbox & PS3, maybe PC), mutli-device (iPad, mobile phones), open world, combination First Person Shooter (FPS) & Role Playing Game (RPG) with possible Real Time Strategy (RTS) elements as well. There will also be a micro-transaction or subscription based economy for players to upgrade, sell or trade goods and of course website integration to keep you coming back. This will take place in a single universe where all player actions, games and data are in real time to all other players. I also speculate this game engine will either be for the next generation or already support the current consoles and run on the next generation in the same game release. After all what is bigger than Halo? Single universe, on planet (FPS/RPG), off planet (RTS/MMO), user generated content and cross platform interaction (subscription/micro transaction)...that's what. [/i][/b] Bungie already have open access to multi-platforms, they like to take on ridiculous challenges and they really try to be innovative with their execution of new game mechanics e.g. Halo 2 multiplayer, XBL chat, Halo CE FPS console etc. Imagine Bungie's next game with a universe where all players are in the same game data, much like Dust/Eve games. Forget having a separate campaign and multiplayer! A single universe allows for both to become combined and a dynamic story evolving from gamers playing online. The story is set and fleshed out from Bungie obviously giving art-style, game mechanics etc to the base game engine. Now add more than just random multiplayer or campaign games without story/canon meaning or feedback to the universe itself. The result is dynamic universe and game outcomes direct from players who choose to create or participate in the single universe. This is sort of an extension of Forge being rolled into the single universe of campaign/multiplayer. The longer the game plays out online the more the community shapes the overall universe. Now think of the website statistics or interaction...you would be able to view things at a global universe level. This could even open things up for different games, such as Halo Wars also participating back to the single universe of other games like Halo Reach. It's this sort of multiplatform, multi-game environment combined with player creating tools I think Bungie/Activision are aiming for. I also believe we'll see different game traits for platforms e.g. Mobiles devices for minified RTS/MMO plus trading systems or statistics or customisations etc. Desktops/laptops for RTS/FPS/MMO and consoles/PC's for the full blown experience. [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=71308651]And this: When did Destiny development start? Some interesting research...[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnsLmohs7SI]Introducing Warsoup: Claims to be Halo meets Starcraft. It's interesting to see the genre lines blur...[/url] Concept art speculation: 1. Player customisation, wide variety of helmets & armour 2. Teams/Factions (red vs. blue in one pic and also a red cape guy with emblem or leader insignia) 3. FPS weapons, long range, handgun, assault style 4. Vehicles such as mammoth style, tank style, spaceship style 5. Shields on the space ship so technology is paramount suggesting Sci-Fi obviously 6. Play spaces scale and LOD mechanics 7. Player abilities e.g. blue bubble shield thing 8. Ships have emblems as well, most likely faction/team based. 9. Tank image has a Destiny logo on the shoulder...alien enemies??? 10. Possible squad or orders based game mechanics, the solider finger pointing suggests these actions. 11. Male and female characters. [Edited on 11.27.2012 5:29 PM PST][i][/i]

    • Also i posted on anther thread but anyone else think it may be like planetside 2? like how you battle for areas on planets and maybe dogfight in the ships. Take area from either good Ai (or opposeing faction?) and defend it from invasion possibly. Also rewatching it, it may be classes. like heavy, ranged/stealth, assault, (and was there something that looked like fire magic in a concept art or am i thinking of something else?) But personally. kinda wished the factions thing was mainly a pvp thing only. the main story would be gathering raids for 5 star difficulty ai enemies or makeing small squad 2 star ai runs.but that just personally. maybe because id love to see a cross platform where we all work together. would be epic.

      • Wait ''Faction wars'' I think there hinting to a type of PVP. Well suddently visiting Saturn is going to be alot more risky. my main question: is ''The City'' going to a type of safe haven? and if so what kind of armor/weapons could we get there?

      • ya. rewatching the vidoc, he says over the next ten years. it sounds like there will be other games. Or like wow maybe add ons and such. I wouldnt mind a game like that on consoles. Every year have an expansion. but i am seeing a mass effect feel, ai squaddmates? just looking at the 2 ships behind the main ship in the vidoc... please correct me if im wrong. but it has the halo styles and feel with the cod reaction and gameplay. i gotta say its gonna be fantastic if we combine me3, halo, and cod into 1 mmo.

        • With the recent PS4/Bungie reveal about Destiny on PS3 & PS4 as well as Jason Jones stating persistent universe I believe I'm still on the right speculation trail that the universe will in fact span generations and cross platforms to one playable game for all. *[i]crosses fingers.[/i]

        • Just updated the OP, Destiny is not coming out until 2014 from an Activision press release. Apparently Activision's financial year ends 31 DEC 2013 as well so it's an official press release nothing Destiny on any platform is due this year, 2013.

            • The only thing I'd relate to your question is some play testers said they ran into another group of players. Like 3 players coop going through the game world and running into another group of 3 players coop. To me it seems quite social from that tidbit of information.

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Avenger I32 i asume we will here something at e3 2013. And isn't it confirmed that it will be released fall 2013? if so then Im positve that we will see something at e3. also seeing as it has been in development since halo 3 odst i think that it will be an amazing game. and if what they said is true about it being a mmo/rpg/fps mix. it will be a very unique game cant wait[/quote] You would think with releasing some official artwork to stem the leaks that Bungie is getting very close to a full teaser or reveal of the new title or universe.

            • Im not sure how they're going to combine so many different types of gameplay, maybe they'll make it like Driver: San Francisco where the player jumps from above view (kinda) then back to the normal view. However the game turns out though, I can almost guarantee that it will borrow quite a bit from the Halo series. Which could be a positive or a negative thing.

            • On the weapons, I couldn't really make any guesses about them, they all just look like generic guns to me. Even the "sword". I can see how you would think it was a blade, but it's definitely just a gun, though its weilder is holding it upright as he appears to be sprinting. Or maybe just posing. Probably peering ahead.

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] angry0lbgrampa Lets break down the image. Far Left Knight- Carrying what looks to be a weapon for Close quartered combat. Knight second on the left- Carrying a sword of some sort. Floating Orb- Seems to be a probe/sensor of some kind. Massive mech like thing- Large Cannon Looks to Have AA rockets mounted as well as a rear gun. Knight on top of MEch looks to have a long range weapon. Knight that is center parallel to mech- Looks to have an assault weapon of some kind. All of the knights in the image seem to have some sort of protective suit, that provides oxygen, and maybe Speculation here, Protection from radiation. Also, Looking at this image, something of this scale could now ay be on the Xbox 360, the hardware would not be able to support this. I expect a Microsoft announcement of the release of The next Gen Xbox early 2013. These are my opinions. [/quote] What image? I have to find it, it sounds like it has lots of details in it. #edit: Ohhh, in the new post.... woot! About the knights, perhaps they aren't knights? Their helmets apear to suggest multiple eyes, which may just be rule of cool, but if not, four eyes sure aren't human. If so, then this might be images of our new antagonist.
