Bungie Officially Unveils Their New Game ‘Destiny’. It’s Too Beautiful For Words. Come Inside.

Destiny (12)

You’ve probably already heard about Destiny. If you haven’t, it’s Bungie’s newest game since passing on the Halo series to 343 Industries. Bungie is combining forces with Activision this time around who as you know are behind the Call Of Duty series. Bungie made the Halo Universe massive, and they aren’t dialing it back one bit for Destiny. They plan to have a huge social aspect to the game. Where you could be exploring the massive universe in your game and come across other online adventurers in theirs. But it sounds like it will be so much more than what you would experience in an MMO. And it’s loaded with what Bungie is known for. Awesome FPS action. Head past the break for the reveal video, incredible game art, and lots more on the game!



“Activision focuses on doing a few things, exceptionally well. And Bungie has had the same ethos,” Hirshberg continued. “Together we are focusing the considerable resources, creativity and energy of both organizations to do something new, something ambitious, but most importantly, something fun.”

One of the most amazing things about Destiny is that is is running on a Nex Gen game engine. Which means the game will supposedly be playable on this generations consoles, as well as the soon announced new systems. Read about it and more below.

Set in the distant future, Destiny casts players as Guardians of the last city on Earth, who will traverse the ancient ruins of our solar system from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Able to wield incredible power, players must battle humanity’s enemies and reclaim all that was lost during the collapse of mankind’s Golden Age. In a story-driven universe, Destiny’s saga unfolds through grand tales and sweeping adventures by immersing gamers in a bold new world filled with cooperative, competitive, public, and social activities, all seamlessly connected. Bungie’s new next-generation game engine will allow Destiny to come to life on both the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, as well as other future console platforms.

“Destiny is the game that we’ve been dreaming of building for years. We couldn’t be more pleased about our extraordinary collaboration with Activision. We finally have the right partner, team and technology to bring the experience to millions of players worldwide,” saidHarold Ryan, Bungie president. “Destiny will draw players into a world filled with mystery, action, and adventure, but most importantly, Destiny is more than a disc in a drive, it is a living social universe filled with other players.”

    As pretty as it is… what exactly does it bring to the table to seperate itself from every other MMO is my question? They all promise the moon, but deliver the same bog standard styles of gameplay when it boils down to it…

      My thoughts exactly. Seems like just a nice looking MMO, just like any other MMO. Won’t have a real idea until we see a real gameplay demo and a better idea of what innovations it plans to bring.

        I am confused on why you guys think this is an MMO? Destiny has never been called an MMO… But simply stated that it has a “Persistent world” and MMO style features.

        This means that the game is always online, whether you want to play alone (You can, that is great) or you want to join friends and explore the world together… Either way, the game and the world around you in the game is always updating based on quests and different group style raid events that have been completed or failed. These events are the only thing that require online group play.

        That being said… The game is fucking massive, and you will feel extremely lonely playing alone.

          I was wondering the same thing. I didn’t officially call it an MMO. Bungie never did either. I just compared it slightly to an MMO because of the social aspect.
