Exploring in Destiny.

Agree

202

Disagree

25

Now I get it. I shouldn't need to be rewarded for exploring spots that other people might not venture to. But I can't help but feel that there isn't much of a factor to make me want to explore places that others might not pay any mind to. I'm just curious on what everyone else thinks about this. This isn't a deciding factor on whether I will keep my pre-order or not. I love the game. I would just like to hear your opinions.

  • There are exploration elements in the game, but it's made in a very linear way

    • I love exploring. There were chests all over the place in the beta, not just in caves and stuff but on cliff edges that were difficult to get to without dying. I know the chests don't usually have anything too great inside, but for me, it's more about the hunt than the reward.

        The only thing that prevents players from exploring certain areas are the levels on the enemies, not because they don't want to or think they won't get a reward for doing so. There was an area north of the Forgotten Shores that I wanted to explore, but the "??" and immune enemies prevented me.

        • I really hope the exploration is amped up in the full game. It was definitely lack luster in the beta. Most of the side rooms were just clones and the loot chests were just glimmer and the occasional crap armor/weapon. Most of the time hitting every nook and cranny would only yield a ghost or some spin metal. I would like to come across randomly generated bosses out in the wild that are guarding awesome treasure.

          • If you've ever played Myst Online: Uru Live, and everything past that, then completed everything you could within that game and still came back to explore, you would have no problem whatsoever exploring ANY open area game. :)

          • I don't know. I think the beta was just the bare-bones version of the exploration, a theoretical what if for the designers. I would be really surprised if players weren't rewarded for exploration.

            • Finding chests and Ghosts were the reward for exploring. Exploring was great in the game!

              • There could be rewards like achievements or special loot. something like the borderlands exp rewards would be cool.

              • has it been stated that there isn't any reward for exploration? They said it would have rpg aspects to it, and with the only ones being leveling, classes and character customization I would really hope they have some incentive for exploration.

                • Hey, I look at it this way. exploring is the reward. Life is about the adventure NOT the destination, but I kind of find that ironic since the game is named "Destiny".

                  • You are rewarded for exploration? The dead ghosts and golden chests are proof. Those items are only found through exploration.
