Bungie Redefining the FPS Genre Once Again with Destiny

Destiny will be redefining FPS genre and developer behind it is none other than Bungie, who are for Halo franchise.

When we first saw Destiny back in February, it did something more to us than developing a sheer curiosity. But sadly whatever we saw was not much!

We got to know that it is going to be a first-person shooter with good online capabilities but duh! We already knew this much of course.

Turns out that all the wait we did, did not go in vain at least. What we saw at E3 this year gave us all the answers we needed. I can even go on and say that Bungie has just gotten bigger & better with Destiny.

The setting of the game is in a post-apocalyptic era with devastated planet Earth where your role is to play a guardian angel of the last surviving city located underneath an enigmatic ‘Traveler’ which is apparently a large white circular surface.

Any information regarding exactly what ‘Traveler’ does is a mystery and the publisher has presumably decided to keep it that way.

However, the earth is not the only place to roam and explore. It was interesting to see the whole solar system at your disposal asking to be explored. Each planet on the solar system has its own distinctive environment, missions, and overall feel.


Although the gunfights that we saw were not up-to-the-mark the general fluidity, feel, and looks of the game were more than incredible.

Destiny features three different classes – Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks – that you can choose from while deciding your character. Each of these varies greatly in their skills, attributes, and style but these details were obviously not provided at E3.

In Destiny, there are literally a whole lot of weapons to choose from. And all of these weapons can be upgraded to your convenience. And the final equipment you will get after installing the last upgrade will be much more than just a mere gun. You can also loot enemies with their weapons and ammunition, and this adds to the vast variety of weapons available to you.

Destiny is a huge game but that certainly does not mean that you will get bored of it at some point. And even if you do get bored; the co-op mode is there to rescue which itself is a highlight of this game. The demo we saw gave us a glimpse of two players taking out a huge boss and it was pretty enjoyable to watch.

Now let’s get to the graphics of the game. Needless to say that the graphics of this game are jaw-dropping. Fans were literally blown away by what they saw at E3. The post-apocalyptic atmosphere, lightning effects, and the feel of roaming the solar planet were fascinating enough to crave for more.

The Destiny took the E3 this year to a whole new level. Bungie has done it once again – they have redefined the first-person shooting genre with Destiny. They left the stage at E3 with hundreds and thousands of fans asking for more. Even we are rooting for this one.

Destiny is all set to release on all home consoles including Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation III, and Playstation IV.

It is definitely going to be on our recommendation list when it will make its debut somewhere during next year.
