Destiny Map Size Confirmed + More Info

The largest single map will be 2 sq km, although there is no information on just how many maps there are. For comparison, Skyrim is assumed to be about 16 sq km. This is according to the Sep. 2013 issue of Edge magazine and a quote from Ryan Ellis, [i]"Sometimes a map is half a kilometer across, sometimes it's up to our engine maximum right now: two square kilometers."[/i] Other notable bits of information include: -The reiteration that a fireteam is composed of 3 players. -Public events are cyclical, so if you stay in the same place for a while, you will get an idea for how often an event occurs there. -If you stay in some places for an hour, you could run into 50-100 unique players. -A player from a public event cannot follow you into a private area unless they join your fireteam, although the Bungie devs are currently still discussing the best ways to implement features like this. -The author speculates that Bungie will create 4 games of Destiny, and 4 substantial DLCs and even assumes Destiny 2 will be released in 2016. -The 360/PS3 versions of the game will be identical in content and gameplay, but graphically different from the One/PS4 versions. -Although not confirmed by Bungie, a crafting system seems likely and was "teased" This is a lot of information so I was surprised nobody seemed to be discussing it yet. Make me proud Bungie forum, don't get hung up on all the trolls.
