Size of the game (with source)

All right guys, I have been waiting to post this, but last night DeeJ confirmed, that there will be 1 explorable location per planet and this basically also confirmed, that the following source is realible: http://destinydb.info/activities (edit: the creator of the website asked me to write that the info is from 30.June) [u][b]I browsed this website a lot and realized how endgame content is going to work. To sum it up:[/b][/u] [b]Before you read on: this may or may not be how the final product is going to look like. It is just a speculation based on the website mentioned above. I do not want to convince you about anything, but I'm sure if you browse that site you will come to a similar conclusion. Beware, this may contain spoilers!!! [/b] - 4 explorable locations (Earth, Moon, Mars, Venus) - 6 strikes (1 Earth, 1 Moon, 2 Mars, 2 Venus. However one of the Mars strike is PS exclusive.) - 1 raid (The Vault of Glass) - 16 pvp maps It's already been told, that we are going to hit lvl 20 quickly. So what happens after this? We are going to have the possibility to run a random strike (accessible from the orbit) on a higher level: -lvl18 -lvl20 -lvl22 -lvl24 For example the Devil's Lair is going to be there on those difficulties. But how can you achieve a level over 20? It is well documented, that you can get to lvl 20 by collecting XP. In order to gain additional levels, you need to obtain gear with [b]"light stat" [/b] . Light gives you additional level. So, what you are going to do, when you hit 20? You will go to lvl 20 strikes to get gear with light. I suspect, that the strikes and rewards will be scaled, so that you have to spend a lot of time on a level in order to get access to the next one. What happens, when you hit lvl 24 and finished farming all the high level strikes? [b]You go to weekly strikes[/b] This means, that every week there is going to be a strike on an even higher level. -lvl24 -lvl26 -lvl28 For example Devil's Lair is going to be this strike from 09.sept. - 16.sept. And so on. This mode is called: [b]Nightfall[/b] After you cleared all the weekly strikes you go to the Vault of Glass. It will be on lvl27, lvl31 and lvl31. EDIT_1: I also found something called "Activity Power" associated to every activity on that website. I think it's the true scale of difficulty of each activity. For example: lvl 8 - Devil's Lair = Activity Power 0,37 lvl 20 - Devil's Lair = Activity Power 8 lvl 24 - Devil's Lair = Activity Power 53 lvl 28 - Devil's Lair = Activity Power 98 lvl 31 - Vault of Glass = Activity Power 132 This will take time Guardians! EDIT_2: Meanwhile basically the same Information appeared on Destiny Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/2bv20d/spoilers_this_is_what_we_can_reasonably_expect_at/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

  • The PvP is great, but I really expected more from the PVE. I can't help but feel disappointed in this. Only 6 strikes....really? How fun is it going to be to continuously play the same strikes over and over, but just at a higher level? I can't help but feel that it's going to get old very fast.

      • I think we have the old tech in the xbox 360 and ps3 to thank for the lack of content. If this was "next-gen" only then we'd see a huge difference. But the 360 and ps3 are both cash cows with over 80 million consoles sold each. Another question I have is. Combine all the free roam maps into one. Then how big is this game? It'll be no smaller than whats already out there. I should have waited to buy my ps4 at least 3 years because as long as they keep making games for the 8 year old hardware there really isn't going to be any huge innovations. I'm dissapointed in the industry as a whole. Not this game.

        From the video that's being referenced he doesn't really confirm this IMO. When Deej is asked about the 1 explorable location he doesn't reply like hes confirming it saying "yes there's only 1 explorable location" instead he replies as if he's correcting the person asking the question that they refer to the planets( earth, mars, etc ) as Destinations. He also goes on to say that they revealed everything we'll eplore in the first version of the game. I'm thinking that more will be added over the coming months until the second Destiny title including more missions, strikes, weapons, armor and locations.

          If the Cosmodrone is the only location on Earth that we can explore then what is this? It is around the 4 minute and 57 second mark. It appears to be the Twilight Gap as it takes place on the outskirts of the last city. [url=http://youtu.be/LIxxsw7TNd4?t=4m57s]Destiny Official E3 Gameplay Experience Trailer[/url]

        • Bungie needs to make at least the Strike missions offer 1-6 player Fireteams on the higher levels. This is suppose to be a multiplayer focused game, not a single player Co-Op, and some of us have a whole lot of friends that will be playing the game and it sucks when you have to pick only 2 to group with outside of the Crucible. During the beta usually there has been at least 4 to 6 of us playing and we have no choice but to go play separately or only play Crucible when there could be higher level enemies and bosses added for 6 player Strikes.

            Was hoping for more explorable areas on the moons and planets. Though given that this game is going to span for 10yrs...there should be a crapton more.

              • It's can't be just those 4 locations..really? So they revealed 1/4 of the game's content in beta already? Not much of a scale.....

              • Lvl'ing will probably cap out at 20, after that maybe a gear score will take over, it is a gear oriented game. So you hit twenty then you have a gear score calculated by the gear stat buffs. Just a guess.

                • With the "hidden" levels, the game is definitely longer than naysayers have purported. It sucks that only one location per planet will be available at launch, but at least there is a variety and we won't spend the entire game in a narrow corridor like a lot of shooters.

                    free updates after launch with more content maybe? I could see them doing that especuially when we have seen concept of the rift ,europa, old chicago, the reef. So i think we can say there will be free dlc after launch

                      I'd like to mention a post on another thread on that matter, cause I just think that what you guys are all bumped off isn't actually true, cause you may have over interpreted the question/answer. It's from a guy named "ManBearPiglets" in the topic " Only one explorable area per planet? " He says the following: "He says they are calling the locations 'destinations', and that 'your story takes you [away?] from the wastes of the cosmodrome'. He never addresses the question if there is only one destination per planet, he only says that all the places you go in the first version of the game have been mentioned before (ie. planets). Could be one place, could be more, maybe as we explore and large public events happen the world will allow access to new areas." And honestly that is also what I heard...he never said explicitly that there is just one location to visit on the planet. Some minutes later he also talks about some stuff that further backs this claim here, I don't know the exact time stamp though.

                      • This is hilarious. People wanted more In the beta and then they play old Russia. Now they can't take anymore. Hence the reason why they try not to release to much content in a beta cause you would never buy it later. They have said less than 10% has been explored with the alpha. I would say we got 10% with the beta as a guess. leveling was accelerated, if people are worried this is gonna be small, well that's a relative thing. A 10 year commitment on bungies part plus 500 million budget. I hardly doubt they are done with content. Give your heads a shake, a business with that amount of cash and backing are not gonna let their franchise/ip die before release. Be patient ducktards.

                        • In the Grimoire card saction you can see that there is a saturn card soooo... I assume there will be some sort of content in saturn, maybe only PVP who knows... wait Bungie knows!

                        • Just looking closely at the star map shows likely 1 explore location and strike per planet. I admit that I expected more but I'm not letdown. I think this game will still be among the biggest I've ever played with off the charts value and quality. The alpha and beta are already among the best games I've played in years with the absolute best PvP and co-op I've possibly ever played, been a long time since I had that much fun in mp.

                          When I heard this news, I was so godamn dissapointed. There's one thing I can't stand, and that's false advertising. Bungie literally LIED to us and are giving us evidence that the game is much smaller than we thought, but you guys are still clinging on to a false hope. After the dissapointment that was Watch Dogs, I hoped for more from a company as praised as Bungie. "Everything you see is explorable" or "Every planet is the size of Halo:Reach" yeah right. Go to 1:20 if you don't believe me. http://youtu.be/qhNkK4h1oVk PS: For the people talking about "expansion packs" (DLC!!), that's still additional content announced BEFORE even the release of the game, that you have to pay for! They most likely won't add locations either, but missions/bosses.

                        • With the size of this game been 10 years of course there not going to have everything straight away! The content that is provided from day one will be a hundred plus hours! Other sections will be made available once they have made them

                          • Not for nothing, there are a lot of blocked off areas inside old Russia and moon. I believe these are just beta versions of the maps and there will be a lot more to find, on top of that they said this game is a 10 year commitment where they can add in anything in the drop of a dime so at first it may seem small but as there servers grow they will add in more and more and within a month a game could easily grow 2x the size of launch

                            OMG... People who think endgame content means "more places to explore" [b]do know nothing[/b] Endgame content is doing high level instances (strikes) and raids, along with daily quests (bounties) and getting [b]the loot you desire[/b] In Diablo 3 the campaign is 5 hours long, and you'll see all the explorable locations in that playthrough. But people get addicted to it, because it's driven by the ultimate reward: [b]LOOT[/b] #InBungieWeTrust
