Official Destiny Gameplay Reveal Video (HD) – Bungie Week: Day 2

Instead of the usual one day festivities that take place on Bungie Day, July 7th – the 7th day of the 7th month… they love the number 7. Bungie has decided to celebrate with Bungie Week.

Day 1: They announced some new avatars and profile signatures on bungie.net to show the world your loyalty and years spent prowling the forums.

Day 2: Is where we are right now. After many requests Bungie has decided to reproduce their E3 Gameplay demo in 1080p high definition quality. Many E3 live stream viewers were treated to pixelated and sub-par HD quality and the broadcast was plagued with video and audio difficulties.

In this version, the fireteam follow the same paths with new commentary and minor differences, but otherwise the same gameplay we have seen before – just without any hiccups.

As a result my analysis of this demo still stands as is. Click here to watch it.

Enjoy

Destiny: “Welcome to the Frontier” – Bungie’s Pre-E3 Info

As of May 9th Bungie opened up the flood gates a little bit, revealing more details about their game Destiny. With just a few days before the Xbox Reveal event on May 21st and a few weeks till E3 here’s some information to tie us over till then.

On May 9th Bungie updated their website, Bungie.net, revealing some brief descriptions for certain elements of their game, and revealing placeholders for future information. Such elements include, Story, Guardians, The Frontier, and Our Enemies. Each with sub categories.

Opening page contained a few blurbs about Destiny including this following paragraph

Destiny features a compelling storyline, competitive multiplayer, cooperative gameplay choices, wide open public combat destinations, and third-person community spaces where you can repair and rearm before going out on your next adventure.

This confirms that Destiny will have 3rd person viewing angles in certain areas, like social gatherings at a hub like the Tower.

The next details were vague about the end of the golden age, The Traveler, and the Last City. “In our darkest days, Humans, Exos, and Awoken found the Traveler where it made its last stand, low above Earth, silent and immobile. We built this City – our last – within its protective Shield, fighting countless wars to keep its peace. From that dark age, the Guardians of the City were born.”

Warlocks have long studied the Traveler, mastering some of its arcane energies. Its true purpose still remains a great mystery, but discovering truth has always driven you into the unknown. Now, our enemies are the only thing that stands between you and the lost wonders of our Golden Age.

The first Titans built the Wall, and gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same high place, steadfast and sure, protecting all who shelter in your shadow. You hail from a long line of heroes, forged from strength and sacrifice. Our enemies may be deadly and merciless, but so are you.

Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You’re no outlaw—at least, not anymore—but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. Your unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever.

Next they began to describe the locations in our solar system first with the Abandoned Earth and then the Moon.”The wilderness beyond the walls of the City are ruined and corrupted, claimed by nature and our enemies. From the war-torn fortresses of the Twilight Gap to the skyward steppes of Old Russia, evidence of our lost glory still litters the Earth, waiting to be rediscovered”. “Early exploration attempts have proven too dangerous. The City has since classified Earth’s Moon as a Forbidden Zone.” With information on Mars, Venus, and other planetary bodies in our solar system awaiting reports from the Vanguard for now.

Finally, some light was shed on the enemies. In particular The Fallen, revealing 3 classes within the race: Dreg, Vandal, and Captain.

The Fallen are a scourge, tirelessly engaged in war against us and scavenging all that remains. They say their Houses have claimed every planet and moon we ever touched. If you see one in the wild, know there are many more nearby, and don’t hesitate to send their souls screaming into the black.

 

Last but not least, leaving us some teasers on the Cabal… but Bungie is saving those details for later.

It’s been years since they first made their presence known at the Twilight Gap. While early reports have them centered on or around Mars, the true might of the Cabal is still wrapped in speculation. Awaiting more reports from the Vanguard.

Till then, Enjoy! See you guys next time

Destiny Official PlayStation 4 Announcement!

destiny_desktop

Straight from the PlayStation 4 press conference, Activision led the introductions to Bungie to close out the conference. A fitting choice to have first-timer Bungie to the PlayStation world.

They announced that Bungie will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Also that PlayStation will have their own exclusive content.

I would expect the same treatment to owners of the Xbox 360 and future owners of the next-gen Xbox console.

Enjoy the video and a look into some game footage!

Bungie’s Destiny Won’t Release in 2013

245007-header

Early this morning Activision put out a press release in regards to the rumours about the release date of Bungie’s next title, Destiny.

They have stated that Destiny will not be included in Activision’s 2013 outlook and “there should be no speculation or expectation of a different result”.  So this means they have no plans for Destiny to release in 2013, so we’ll have to hope for 2014.

They also restated that Destiny is confirmed for the “the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, as well as other future console platforms”, which hints that Destiny will also be available for the next generation consoles; “The Xbox”, and “PlayStation 4”.

We have seen this before in video game history. For example, Call of Duty 3 was released November 7th 2006 for PlayStation 2 and then for PlayStation 3 when the new console launched just 10 days later on November 11th 2006. Similarly, the game was released for both Xbox and Xbox 360.

So this means that Destiny will not be a next-gen launch title for the Xbox or PlayStation 4; as we are expecting a PlayStation 4 announcement this week and speculation towards a Holiday 2013 launch time for both the new Xbox and PlayStation 4.

This rarely happens that a video game be released across different generations of consoles. So given the rarity and previous occurrences of this happening, we can speculate that Destiny will be releasing rather early in the next-gen consoles life.
