Destiny: FPSGuru.com - GDC Panel Details

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Our partners at FPSGuru.com have your Destiny fix from last week's Game Developers' Conference. They sat in on the Destiny panel and have a full, comprehensive report. Check it out at FPSGuru.com!

First, Destiny started as a fantasy game. After Halo they had gotten tired of sci-fi and wanted to build something different. Halo had such energized content but was only a slice of a much bigger universe. Destiny is allowing them to build an entire world where events happen, not just within one small game space. They based the universe on a series of design pillars. They wanted a game that was inviting and hopeful. As violent as Destiny is, there's hope for humanity in it. They also wanted an idealized reality, so the world had to be gritty and feel very down to earth despite being epic and mystic. They also wanted a large amount of mystery and adventure. Players need to discover and learn as they play and the aspect of unlocking secrets was very important.

    There should be quite a bit revealed at this years E3 according to a recent Bungie video and mail sack.  I'm guessing it is there we'll see more of the actual game and its play, rather than its influences and high level design.
