I haven't watched all of the leaked footage but, even going back to E3 2013, the more I see the less interested I get. Bungie started out by saying this game was going to be groundbreaking, unlike anything before it with many different ways to play. Yet everything we've seen looks like a very generic shooter, go to an area and fight waves of enemies. The world looks beautiful, I'll give them that but, the gameplay we've seen doesn't look like it will hold my interest for a few months, much less years like they are hoping.

Agreed. The only thing that was good was the initial trailer and since then I am still waiting to actually see why I should be interested because each time I see a new vid it just seems basic. Not used to this new Bungie outside of a Halo with MS or the backing of Activison like the way they reveal the next COD. Still waiting to see what is special about this game.

The 5.0 is here

Agreed. I think we are all hoping for the best of Halo and Mass Effect blended into one. That will be tough to pull off and the previews so far don't give off either vibe. Bad timing, early Destiny beta access is the only reason to hold onto a PS4 right now.

I just pre-ordered Destiny for the PS4 and XBOne just so I can get beta access to try it out. Hopefully I will still get the codes. I don't plan on keeping the pre-orders because I have no desire to use a game disc. But I figure I can try the Destiny Beta on both consoles to see how I like it. And then purchase it digitally on one of the consoles if I like it.

A Destiny designer shares some specifics about the game's play structure at NeoGAF:

Quote:
I'm Luke, and I'm one of the lead designers on Destiny.

First, Destiny is structured into Activities.

We've attempted to build a suite of activities that can suit a variety of moods (I want something challenging! I want to chill out with my friends! I want to see where the story goes next! I want to shoot other players!, I want the game to be a cruel dominatrix! et cetera)

These activities come in a bunch of flavors:

  • Story missions - soloable activities (you can still play them in groups of up to 3!), often with ties to the main story arc of Destiny (the campaign). These activities appear at various Levels (numerical, relative to the player) and choosing a higher level (relative to you) means you're opting in for some additional challenge.
  • Strikes - 3 player activities, with bosses and loot at the end. Their goal is a highly replayable activity that will - at higher levels - lead you into the loot game.
  • Explore - cruise around the surface of a planet in Fireteams of up to 3, taking odd jobs and tasks for the City. You can find minerals and resources out in the world that you'll have some use for as you find weapons in Destiny that you want to stick with. This is a lower intensity activity
  • Raids - 6 player, cooperative required, communication required gameplay. High challenge. We haven't talked much about this yet and I'm not going start that conversation here on NeoGAF
  • Multiplayer This is for the "shoot other players" mood.

Now, the second part is how the world has been built.

We've structured Destiny's world to have places where you will probably intersect with other players, and places where you won't. We're not going to have players drop into the climax of a mission, but the common landing zones for a given planet? That seems like a great place to see other players running amok in the world.

EDIT: Regardless of what activity you're playing (PVP aside), you'll see players on their own activities, i.e., players beginning a Strike might see a guy collecting Relic Iron on Mars, and a Public Event begins and suddenly everyone is distracted to take down a key Cabal target for a chance at powerful gear and materials to upgrade your best weapons and armor.

A bunch of folks are playing the Alpha now and we're already seeing all kinds of opportunities for places to improve Destiny. I have no doubt that in the Public Beta, we will learn even more from your feedback and experiences.

I'm not going to get into any of the recurring activities or gearing or class stuff today, but I imagine we'll start to try and explain stuff more soon.

Also, here's a fantastic summary video released a few months ago that details a lot of what the game is about. Be sure to check it out if you haven't seen it:

Here is a 7 minute long video entitled, "Experience" that Bungie released after the Sony Conference that gives a more concrete look at what we can expect from Destiny.

It talks about the "Director," Destiny's mission selector, co-op gameplay, and the "Crucible," which is Destiny's competitive multiplayer mode.

The trailer is narrated by the head of Bungie as well:
(well, I can't find the inline video option anymore--did they remove that during the upgrade?). I posted the link below for those who to check the trailer (which SHOULD have been the one that Sony presented at their conference, btw).


EDIT: Ah, the forum software took the link and made it an inline player without me doing a thing. Pretty snazzy, AVS!

While some of us are signed up for the July 17 beta, if you immediately sign up for the Destiny alpha by midnight tonight (PST) you'll get a chance to play an early preview through Sunday.

I have not but I really hope Joe is right. I have been looking forward to playing Destiny all week.

OT: Why oh why did they remove the link at the bottom to get back to the sub forum you were on...it is such a PIA to have to scroll back to the top all the time.

I actually just saw right below the quick reply box there is a link to jump to forums and it defaults to the current sub forum you are in.

Still don't like that they do not tell you how many unread post you have.

6.7gb for the game. Also an update file but that was much smaller. Moving quicker now. It was at 21 hours and last time I checked it said 4 hours. Ran a quick speedtest and I'm still getting 80 down so let's go psn
