    Bungie on what Destiny does better than Borderlands



    "Bungie hopes to take Borderlands’ brand of openworld shooting one step further through connected play.

    The Destiny developer invited us into its studio for the cover story of our new issue, on sale Thursday August 1. The game will allow players to level up using Talent Points, and Bungie acknowledges that it has taken inspiration from fellow openworld shooters Far Cry and Borderlands.

    “We are absolutely doing things that would be familiar if you’ve played any kind of open-world game,” creative lead Joe Staten told us. “I mean… Far Cry, even. We would be idiots if we didn’t look at an awesome game like Borderlands and ask, ‘What are they doing well and how can we try to hit that same ball?’ I have never played a game where I have such a great attachment to my gun as I do in Borderlands.

    “When we look at a game like that, we look at the things they’re doing well and also at opportunities they might have missed that we can capitalise on. You can party up with a group of people and then go around with that group, but never in Borderlands are you going to collide with a group of other people doing it too. We don’t do that just once or twice in the game, we do that all the time, everywhere. You see other people on the horizon, hear gunfire over a hill and see space magic flying behind some trees, and you know… there are other people out here, that [changes everything]. Borderlands right now is: ‘I’m going to walk into that space and we’re going to clear them out and keep going’. And frankly that’s not just Borderlands, that’s any co-op shooter.”

    Speaking as part of our new issue’s cover feature, Bungie also told us what it learned from developing the Halo games and how those experiences fed into the making of Destiny.

    E257 is on sale Thursday August 1 – you can find out more about the issue here." ~ Source

    I'm definitely ready for this. Bungie knows how to make a great fps. Mix in other aspects and I think it will be golden!

    So is everyone thrown into one giant server with multiple zones that hold so many people. Champions online had a server similar to this. no one was on separate servers so you could join your friends in another zone on another sub server. It was like everything was on sub-servers (if that makes any sense).

    Man, this game is going to kick so much ass.

    Maybe this might just be the Bungie game I actually get in to for more than just a campaign. While I enjoyed Halo to an extent I never really got in to the multi-player.

    Definitely looks good.

    Nope. Some unknown time 2014 same as The division, The 2 games i really want for the PS4.

    I've BF4 and 2K14 reserved, but non of the launch titles really do anything for me. Dunno If I'm going to keep my launch unit or not unfortunately. Im hoping Sony surprises me at Gamescon.

    This game has some promise to it. It does look good visually. But I would like to see if there's more to it than just running around shooting. Is there going to be any RPG elements in it, like Borderlands? That is just one thing I wonder about. I would like to see weapon and equipment upgrades, skill tree's, looting, missions/quests and stuff like that. If it's just going to be a straight shooter, I'm not sure it will be a day one buy for me.

    I'm willing to bet that it will be out in the spring.

    Well they did show off a small part off weapon upgrade "branch" n the reveal at E3 after he picks up the machine gun. It was a linear progression for the weapon they showed.

    I'm sure they will have some skill tree system in place. I'm hoping for all kinds of armor/gear/loot drops to further customize you characters appearance as you progress and that it's not limited to just the weapons.

    @Libra-75 & faaeng,

    It is an indepth FPS RPG, some weapons have linear upgrades, some have branches. They talked about customization drops for your gear and guns.

    Hard to get excited about a Bungie game as they have not made a truly great game since the original Halo waaaaaaaaaay back in 2001, 434's first attempt was better than Halo 2,3,ODST & Reach.

    The really cool thing is that no one can ninja loot. That is the big bonus for me so while everyone gets random drops the drops are made for that person. So your drops might be different then the other guys drops. At least I think that is how it will go. A lot of online games never made a system like this. People would raid a big creature that took 20+ people to take down and one guy would loot all the items and run away.
