Destiny at Core is a Three Person Fireteam but has Lone Wolf Elements
Quite a lot is being talked about Bungie’s upcoming open world mythic science fiction RPG and just in time for the need of knowing, the Community Manager of Bungie, DeeJ has lent his insightful details on Destiny.
The multiplayer shooter’s “core cooperative nucleus is the Fireteam” which is to be “a group of three guardians bound together by blood (and netcode)” said DeeJ while talking to PlayStation Blog in an interview where he was asked about the number of players that can team up in the game.
So this means a typical team based game confined to three players for most of the time, but hey that’s not all there is according to the community manager again:
“But whether you’re going it alone, of linked up with a Fireteam (sic), you can still encounter other Guardians as you tackle the larger challenges that you’ll find in public events.”
He hinted towards having to play with a greater number of players in the competitive multiplayer mode and/or Raids but insisted that we will have to wait a little longer to get to know more about them.
So that’s it about the cooperative modes and all the racket about teaming up, but you can also get to play the game all by yourself if you’re badass enough. Playing destiny’s campaign missions will not require you to bring others with you, you can go in all by yourself given that you can manage it that way.
Of course he insisted on teaming along with others saying “You’ll see other players along the way, but you can choose to ignore them. That said, we think you’ll find that playing with other Guardians is quick, painless, and a ton of fun. It’s always your choice, though.”
Destiny is set for a release to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One sometime later next year while the Beta which Bungie is treating like a full launch comes out in early 2014.
