The Next Big Thing – Destiny: Bungie’s MMO
Watched the reveal this morning, but thought I would post it on here. A couple thoughts:
o Queue the cheers, there are no monthly payments to play.
o This could be the first big MMO on consoles, and really has a lot of potential for massive sales with multi-platform offerings.
o The art is absolutely beautiful.
o Reading the details, this appears to be designed for the ground up for consoles.
o No release date… I am assuming next-gen as the graphical fidelity looks great in the actual in-game footage. (MMOs usually aren’t beautiful because of the scale of the game, and the need to support many ranges of PCs in computer gaming)
o No word on cross-play between PS4 and Xbox720.
o PVP – ‘Faction Wars’ is likely a PVP portion of the game, with Bungie at the wheel, this could be as good as a stand alone MP shooter game.
This could seriously be the next big game for us. MMOs are always new experiences each day, and with a plan to support the game for “10 years”, this could be one of our primary games next-gen.
Here is the link for IGN’s coverage, a quick google should bring more.
