5 Things You Probably Didn't Know about Destiny

So if you're new to Destiny or just wanting more information, check out this video. But while you're here I'll just give a quick summary of what I saw. Firstly, for those of you who enjoy things like Star Wars or Doctor Who this game has it's share of sci-fi influences, but it also has some fantasy in it as well. Pretty much, don't be surprised when a space wizard takes your head off with his sniper rifle Second, Destiny's world will change over time. Things like large public events as well as small events will change the very world around you. You may play for a week straight and come back two weeks later and things will be different Thirdly, how many of you hate getting a care package on CoD and someone else takes it? Well you won't have to worry about that in Destiny. Characters get their own specific loot drops with special armor and weapons in them, so be as selfish as you want, it's ok Fourth, weapons and armor improve while you play the game. Weapons have their own talent trees with specific upgrades. Halfway through a fire fight you may suddenly start blasting nasties away with a fully automatic shotgun. Who knows? And last but certainly not least, for those of you who are like me and are curious about the voice talent in video games, here's a treat, Mr. Bill Nighy, better known to some as Davy Jones from the Pirates series, has given his voice to bring this game more to life. So there you have it, 5 things you now know about Destiny. -Sam Guardians of Legend

    • I love the concept of personal loot! Not only do you not have to worry about sharing, but its based off of your level and class!

          • Sounds awesome! I am a little disapointed about how if I miss playing for a week or two because of, o idk maybe life?, that the world could look radically different. it would suck to miss out on stuff like that. i like having the freedom to go at my own pace through the game

              This is seriously some excellent news! What you have revealed to us today is something which has revolutionised not only the way we look at Destiny, but the way we look at the Xbox One. This new-generation of technology, from the looks of Destiny's current capabilities revealed [i]alone[/i], set the benchmark for other consoles. I can seriously say that I anticipate the release of Destiny, as well as the Fleet I currently reside within. Thank you for supplying us with this, friend.

                  All these facts (exception of mr bill) are more misleading/inaccurate/dumbed down than the the information we knew before hand. I am excited for Bill Nighly thought =D

                  • I think in the Bungie forums that this should have the title "5 Things You Probably Already About Destiny"... but that still feels like it is missing something... what could it possibly be?

Halfway through a fire fight you may suddenly start blasting nasties away with a fully automatic shotgun. Who knows?[/quote] This is slightly misleading. Only [b]Exotic[/b] weapons are shown to have specific upgrades so far. Speculation is that non-Exotic weapons have general weapon upgrades.
