Destiny VGX Gameplay Trailer!

Hello everyone Chief here back yet again with some breaking Destiny news. During Spike TV’s Video Game Award show, now known as VGX a relatively new gameplay trailer was revealed. It’s a little unfortunate seeing old footage again but there are some beautiful new looks intermittently throughout the video. Bungie is a master at teasing us. It would have been nice to have seen the HUD during some of these scenes – which always provides further juicy details.

Within this trailer we get some great (and relatively brief) new looks at the pike vehicle, competitive multiplayer, some guardian supers in action, and fireteams facing off against the many enemies within Destiny – The Vex, Cabal, The Fallen with on of them at the receiving end of a throwing knife, and the Hive. Also including more angles of Phogoth – the Hive boss and another unknown floating Hive enemy that the community has dubbed the “Hive Queen”.

Most of the footage however is old or just new angles of previously seen footage. Bungie is definitely knows how to make their viewers beg for more.

release_date_article

Bungie has just announced that their next game, Destiny, will be launching this September 9th 2014 and that the beta will be start sometime this summer.

“Today, in partnership with Activision, we are proud to announce that the worldwide launch of Destiny will happen on September 9th. Accordingly, the Destiny Beta will kick off in the summer of 2014, available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.”

It appears that Bungie has pushed back the release of both the beta and the game from their earlier announcement of Spring 2014 (Which was made during the beta announcement). Bungie has stated many times that they are treating their beta like a full product launch.

It appears that delaying games has been all too popular as of late. As much as I don’t like to wait any longer for game, especially this one, it is definitely understandable to insure the product is ready for launch.

Building the Destiny E3 Reveal – Bungie Commentary

A trio of Bungie artists sits down to deliver running commentary about Destiny’s E3 Gameplay reveal.

Your Fireteam for this mission will be three of the artists who led the charge to build that brave new world. Experience the adventure that unfolded at E3 through their eyes, and get to know some of the people who are making this game.

They are:
Ryan Ellis, Technical Art Director
Marke Pedersen, Environment Art Lead
Michael Zak, Senior Art Lead

At E3, they were members of our away team. Had you scored a seat as a member of our audience, you would have seen them showing off their work (and the work of their fearless peers) to the world. Now, they’re dishing out commentary on those first steps taken by Guardians into the world they helped to create.

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
