Default Destiny - Coming Sept.9

I figured this game could be own thread worthy.


In the last couple of days I have enveloped in the world that is Destiny.


The App is badass and has some great vids and forums of the folks playing the beta. Check it out! Its available for Android too.


Im sure alot of this isnt news to many of you as there are some already playing the beta on the Sony platforms.



I have a few questions that perhaps some of you guys coud answer.


I see people talking about ships, how is this implimented? I havent spent too much time looking for info on it. But I am curious. Everytime I start looking, I get sidetrackedby something else completely awesome about this game.


Is there going to be a 4th race?

Beta will be in 720P but release will be 1080P for Xbone.


Anyway, if this thread isnt warranted, please lock. If it is, then please add any insight you have here. I trust your guys opinion on this tuff alot more than the general fan boy public.

For Xbone guys playing the beta, im looking for people to link up with.
Hit me up - Xbox live ID- Xx ZparX xX


SOOOO pumped!

EDIT-

If you arent already part of the community, I highly recommend the destiny news forums. Some real good stuff there. It is the direct forums from the app. Some good people on there too.

Ships: I'm assuming you mean the one in between loading screens when flying from mission and the Tower. At the moment it seems to be purely cosmetic.

4th race or class? Either way it's not likely in the near future but who knows a year from now.

Can't wait to get back on. The game is definitely a lot more fun when playing with friends.

Played a little bit of the beta on Sunday and loved it. Really looking forward to turning into a vegetable in September.

I've got my beta key for the xbox360 - I'll post some thoughts on the game when I get a chance to play it.

I used to play Halo all the time, and actually played against some of the best back in Halo 2 days. I've always loved Bungie games, so this one has me pumped!

I'm pretty sure the whole game is strictly multiplayer. Could be wrong, but I don't think there's going to be any single player at all.

You are always online, there's no way to go through the game without running into other players

You can go through your missions or quests alone and ignore the others around you, but Bungie has said that you'll most likely need to team up with others for a lot of the end game missions because they get quite difficult

Is there going to be any PVP modes? Like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch or anything like that?

I haven't read into the game at all. I played the beta for like 2-3 hours, what I learned from that is the only knowledge I have of the game so far.

There is PvP in the the beta, but I haven't tried it yet. As far as I know its just a 6v6 deathmatch. I'm not sure if theres going to be more modes in the full game

The Crucible is the PVP portion of Destiny. So far we only have Control, kind of King of the Hill with 3 points. Right now it's only 2 maps with 6v6 AFAIK.

Two modes for the pvp, one will have everybody and their weapons balanced so there isn't a level advantage and put recently, an Iron Banner mode where level and gear are untouched.

Pretty fun but with the whole game, Bungie needs to seriously reconsider how implement the voice chatting portion of the game. Only ever used my mic with a friend during the campaign. It's dead silent everywhere else.

Yeah but I'm just trying to wrap my head around how exactly you will be able to do quests alone when other players are partaking in the same battles. Bungie hasn't been crystal clear about how exactly you can ignore others and how others can influence your game.

A lot of times enemies spawn in the same spots I noticed. I did one quest where I had to go to an area, I killed the enemies, got what I needed, saw another guy run to the same area and the enemies spawned again. Don't know if the final game will be like that, but at times you can't just take a breath without getting shot in the back.

That's sick. This may be a long shot, but I don't suppose anyone has an extra beta code? I heard those that pre order get 3 beta codes.
