    Destiny info and launch date

    It's delayed.


    Today, in partnership with Activision, we are proud to announce that the worldwide launch of Destiny will happen on September 9th. Accordingly, the Destiny Beta will kick off in the summer of 2014, available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.*

    Enemy classes and info

    Developer Bungie has been working on one of the most anticipated and upcoming FPS video games, Destiny, which was demoed at the E3 2013. It was also revealed that Destiny will be gracing the cover of the upcoming GameInformer magazine.

    A forum member of the*Bungie.net*has revealed some of the new details available on GameInformer magazine.

    This information reveals four new enemy types in the open world game: Fallen, Cabal, Vex, and Hives. Below are the four enemy classes:

    Fallen*- These are space pirates and though they were once honorable, are now nomadic and aggressive. Their sigils are very distinct and their souls burst from their head when they are shot.

    Cabal*- These are the industrial people who are militaristic and crave for war and the 'Rome of Space'. There are four types of classes among them:

    Legionnaires - The infantryCenturions - Mobile units with jet packs that is used for travelGladiators - These are bigger soldiers who are stronger and possess battling gunsPsions - These are smaller cabals who are also the pilots of cabal's space ships and they use their mind to attack. A black oily liquid oozes out of their body when killed.

    Vex*- These are from a different space and time. They have robotic bodies but with organs. Some of them are humanoids and other annamilistic and have claw-like hands. These are not affected by headshots and players need to concentrate on their abdominal power cores to kill them. There are different classes among them, like:

    Goblins - They can harass players by overwhelming them.Hobgoblins - They are larger creatures with tails.Minatours - These are bigger version of Hobgoblins.Hydras - Machines that have three heads and are air mobile. They attack using turrets attached on them.Harpies - These are smaller units that can fly faster and sometimes open up before they start attacking.

    Hives - These are very ancient race of creatures that have still survived. They stay on planets by making tunnels and dungeons beneath planet surface. When killed they turn into dust and embers. There are different classes among them:

    Thralls - These are mobs with no weapons or basic armor.Troopers - Majority of the army are the Troopers.Knights - These possess and use huge cleavers.Wizards - These can fly and cast spells.Ogres - They can fire violet energy beams using their heads and are underground creatures.

    *NeoGAF*also ran a thread that revealed multiplayer features of the game. Following are the details from GameInformer that were revealed by a member called Fracas:

    Groups of teams in what looks like territories; 3 areas to cap and hold that give you multipliers for actionsPlayers can earn points for kills as well as reviving downed teammatesMaps make use of verticality.lots of vertical movement options available to each classGame has dynamic environments.There are many grenade types.Competitive multiplayer is complex but still focused on players skillShooting experience is like Halo.The loot earned in co-op/singleplayer can be used in multiplayer.The article mentions that players will be starting their campaign without any heavy ammunition.

    Destiny has been confirmed for release in 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox360 and Xbox One.

    September 9th? Dear Lord, this game looks epic, as do quite a few other titles. It pains me having to wait.
    Cant wait for devs to fully get to graps with next gen software, the wait is killing me but I know I am in for some absolutely AMAZING treats over the next 6-8 years.

    I hate it when most big name games are releasing next fall. I want big titles in Q1, Q2.

    It's not delayed. This is the first date they've published. Everything else was the gaming fraternity trying to predict its release date.

    Looking forward to to this one though!

    It's a long wait but who cares, if it looks as good as it does in the early demo's then I am more than willing to hang on!

    I was expecting first half of the year not towards the end of the year.

    Hope they have a lengthy beta at least n not the more common demo style "betas" that are like a week or 2 prior to launch

    Damn it! I was hoping for a spring release. Oh well, this doesn't diminish my excitement for the game.

    Anyone else concerned that there will be a drought next year for games? Everything is being delayed or releasing Q3/Q4.

    Summer always has a drought in video games. Q1 will be fine, summer will have a drought, and after that we will get even more games compared to Q1. It's going to be fine and there are some pretty awesome games coming out in the beginning of 2014. Who knows what else is going to come out and I doubt they've revealed everything.

    Not to bad. Owning a PlayStation 3 for the first two years, now that was bad.

    We still have some very nice games coming out between now and September.

    Some of those games will probably be pushed back to fall too.

    I was hoping it was going to be sooner. But looking like fall is going to be loaded with games.

    Destiny looks like such an interesting game. I can't wait for them to tell us more details.

    There's going to be a huge logjam of games next fall. That's not good for consumers because there's only so many games people can buy at once.

    There are quite a bit of Indie titles that will become available in between. Infamous Second Son is due in February and Watch Dogs in April. Driveclub is rumored to be available in NA/EU territories before the Japanese launch on 2/22/14. Planetside 2, a huge FPS MMO, is also scheduled for an early 2014 release.

    The summertime might be slow, but winter and spring 2014 should be solid.

    That would be sick. But it seems like more and more game are ditching split screen for online co-op.
