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.

Bungie and Activision have confirmed a public beta for Destiny sometime in Spring 2014. This is the date for the beta, not the game’s release – which will be sometime after the beta in 2014. The beta will be open to all 4 platforms: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3. The beta is open to anyone who has pre-ordered the game from participating retailers – so check your receipts if you purchase after October 1st, if not your retailer should be contacting you soon.

From IGN article:

The public beta of Destiny scheduled to begin early next year will be treated by Bungie as if it were a “full product launch,” according to the developer’s community manager, Eric Osborne.

“The Destiny beta, in many ways, is being treated like a full product launch. We can’t just carve out three competitive multiplayer maps this time around,” Osborne told GameSpot, referring to Bungie’s past beta tests with Halo 3 and Halo Reach. “We’d only be gathering data on one facet of the overall experience — one that is arguably the least resource intensive and most well understood by our team. Destiny demands more.”

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
