Bungie Destiny the new next generation console game currently in development and preparing to launch sometime early next year has this week revealed a few more details about the options that will be available to players within the game.
Developers at Bungie working on the new Destiny game have explained that even though they are creating a new always-online matchmaking features that will phase other players into your session when certain criterion is matched to produce an MMO-type experience.
There will also be options to play the game entirely on your lonesome if you choose, explaining:
“Video games matter to people for very different reasons. Players who come from expansive universes found in MMOs might enjoy exploring our worlds, assuming they can handle the fact that we’re filling them with the explosive threats and heart pounding action that we think makes games fun. RPG players will be able to invest pretty deeply in their character, assuming their aim is true enough to earn the rewards they’ll need to earn new loot, weapons, and gear.
As for playing solo, this question still comes to us a lot, and we’re happy to answer it again. The company you keep, the challenges you tackle, the war you wage will all be products of the choices you make. If you never want to have a cooperative or competitive experience in Destiny, and if you want to experience every cinematic in private, you’ll have the option. We believe you’ll be having way less fun, and we think you may find it really difficult to resist the pull of our cooperative vortex, but when we say we’re building activities for every mood, that includes players who don’t want to party up.”
The Bungie Destiny game is set seven hundred years into the future in a post-apocalyptic setting following a prosperous period of exploration, peace and technological advancement known as the Golden Age and will be available for both next generation consoles as well as the older versions. Bungie Destiny will be launching in 2014.
