No pilotable ships in Destiny.

After it was generally implied that ships would be flyable or at least feature in the game in some usable form, from the premise of 'Every Guardian gets their own ship', as well as a lot of concept art of ships in action, personal hangers etc, and the subsequent revelation that they are not flyable or usable in the game at all but merely a cut scene, i wanted to ask people, are you disappointed that there is no ship combat or exploration in Destiny? Or are you relieved it's a ground combat game only. Or are you satisfied with its current ommission, but would hope to see it bought in in an update or sequel?

  • I use Mass Effect and SWTOR as perfect examples, exploration can still be done. Free roam in space would be cool, but I'm fine without it.

  • As much as I loved the banshee in the Halo games, Destiny just isn't made for air vehicles. The maps for the most part are designed for ground vehicles and infantry to have to stay on the ground, and follow paths made for them to reach their destination. Air vehicles would eliminate the adventure of those areas, and just fly right over everything. Not to mention, this would make the map feel a lot smaller. However, certain locations could support aircraft, and allow Guardians to have dogfights with the Fallen within the boundaries of specific areas. I would hope if Bungie were to do this they would make it realistic (For example: instead of "RETURN TO THE BATTLEFIELD...10...9...8.... They could make a storm that would cause ships to crash, or maybe some Vex antiaircraft guns. Anyways, that's just my input.

    • For all you people out there look at the ships I swear they look like fighter ships we didn't even get off earth unless you got to the moon but it looks like there will be space battles somewhere along the line

      • I thought the game would be way more than the beta implies. What use is a ship if it's only for loading screens, better still what use are the skins you pay large amounts of glimmer for? If you buy a new sparrow you at least get a speed upgrade along with a colour change.

      • "If you can see it, you can go there." Is a phrase that marketing used to sell the game without actually knowing. It's maps are pretty much just smaller borderlands areas with a hight ceiling. I was hoping that phrase was a comment on the games diverse exploration options, not just hype. I mean they included speeders without races? However it was just the beta and I'll play it and the 2 dlcs but if it doesn't evolve over the ten year plan, I won't be purchasing further.

        • As the feature currently stands, the ship is just a different skin that only shows up in the one repetitive loading screen, right? Personally, I don't even need to actually pilot the ship. At least let us go inside it.

          • I really think Bungie is just playing it safe right now. Once a demand has been put in place for features usually its met with supply to make profits so sooner or later we will see space combat and exploration most likely as a sequel.

          • Flying is one of those things that would be cool to have in the game, but I don't think its a necessity.

          • I'm really disappointed with the lack of use for the ship aside from travel cutscenes, but I can understand their struggle of trying to make flight gameplay that. Would not feel repetitive, or boring. I would have loved to see them go about battlefront style though, had they actually implemented ship gameplay. Otherwise I'm still really looking forward to this.

              Yeah. Ya know I've been wondering.. The whole getting new ships thing seems really pointless when you don't get to fly them. They've been boiled down to interchangeable loading screen. And I have to say. That was something I was excited for when I first started to learn about desteny. I did kinda forget about it though. As more info came out and I really put together what this game was. I did notice they showed less and less of the ships. I honesty can't decide if I'm disappointed about that or not. Doesn't seem to matter at this point. There's also No Man's Sky for that type of game play though. I could have swarn that game was called Nomad Sky when I first heard about it.

                  This ones easy No, I'm not disappointed what so ever. I really don't understand why people even thought they were getting ship combat. Before the beta no one knew anything and after the beta everyone should have known there wasn't any ship combat. Pretty simple concept really.

                    Destiny just has to hold me over till Battlefront and No Man's Sky launch for space flight. Even EVE ONLINE: Valkyrie looks fun. Warframe is getting Archwing while Space sims are getting a new lease on the market with games like Star Citizen ramping up interest as its being developed. I think Bungie and some of their fans are very secure in saying no to anything and everything to their own detriment. Bungie could have led in Space Flight adventuring. Instead it's a elevator ride from Mass Effect so aptly pointed out by another user.

                  • I've already commented in a similar post but it would at the very least be nice to manoeuvre the ships in the space scene :-)

                  • I think for right now its good they didnt put the ship exploration/combat in becuase since its the first game its smart to just show us what Destiny is really about. The ship combat/exploration is just an extra thing.

                    • I don't mind not flying. It would be cool if they implemented a racing mode in the crucible where you can join Sparrow Races or Ship races. But I like the game for what it is in it's current state anyway.

                        • Just a disguise for a loading screen. Might as well be riding in an elevator like Mass Effect.

                            • I think Bungie made the right call, if they bit of more than they could chew we would either end up with a poor flight system and watered down ground combat, or possibly even worse having the game delayed for X number of months.

                              • I think it would be great if your ship made a difference, other than looking different maybe have each ship model give a special ability, while ship to ship combat would be epic, especially in PvP, I don't see it happening, you'd have to add an extra engine into a game that's already running a bunch of different engines that have to interact with each other. A bonus from the ship, or a special ability would still be epic though. Treat the ship like a piece of armor and I'd be happy.

                                  • They'll probably add it in a sequel I'd people ask for it. I don't think they ever mentioned piloting a ship, if they did, it was probably in reference to the sparrow. I do agree that having little bird of exploration I the ship would be cool: navigating an asteroid field, infiltrate/fight off an enemy perimeter to get to or unlock a planet. Maybe find and shoot down an enemy satellite, fight off a ship defending it. Pvp dog fights. It could be a great mechanic. Unfortunately, that would take a ton of work, so I doubt we'll see it this time, I'd be hesitant to say that it could even come out in the sequel as a team could be well into working on the sequel now. But maybe we'll see something like that in destiny 3. It would be a very cool and worthwhile mechanic. It's definitely something that would keep me playing after I've beaten the full story campaign.

                                    • There's no reason why they couldn't add it in later. However, it would be a big project. Although, with how secretive they've been with the aspects of the game up until this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they've already been working on it.

                                      • I don't think it was ever implied you'd be able to fly the ships, you may have inferred that but they didn't imply it. And I don't mind that they aren't flyable, it's just a fun loading screen basically, I'd rather they concentrate on the ground combat, than on the physics of flying and space combat.
