This may have gone unnoticed but, alongside the 12 minute E3 demo video posted on the PlayStation Blog, Bungie has been doing a sort of Ask Me Anything style thing in the comments with its Community Manager. The answers are a little bit full of marketing speak and whatnot, but if you’re looking for some more information on one of the most promising games I saw at E3, it might be worth trawling though.
The most interesting snippet of info, for me, was the fact that Destiny will also cater in some way to folks who like more traditional multiplayer modes.
One of things that we love to say about Destiny is that is has activities for your every mood. Competitive Multiplayer will absolutely be one of them. Like you, I was a digital warrior in all the Halo games. It’s why I have my job. I’m loving the way multiplayer is shaping up in Destiny. Joining a Fireteam to reconquer our solar system with your friends will be fun, but so will battling your fellow Guardians for glory.
The original Halo is probably my favourite multiplayer game of all time, so I’m hoping the Bungie also take the time to create an experience that could work as a competitive game. That’s not exactly what is being promised here, but hopefully “battling your fellow Guardians” will involve some sort well balance, well put together multiplayer. I hope. There must be more to life than collecting fully sick loot.
