IGN’s Destin Legarie and Jose Otero take a closer look at the teaser for the new competitive mode that’s coming to Destiny.
Destiny is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Activision.
It was released worldwide on September 9, 2014, for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One consoles.
Destiny marked Bungie’s first new console franchise since the Halo series, and it was the first game in a ten-year agreement between Bungie and Activision.
Set in a “mythic science fiction” world, the game features a multiplayer “shared-world” environment with elements of role-playing games.
Activities in Destiny are divided among player versus environment and player versus player game types. In addition to normal story missions, PvE features three-player “strikes” and six-player raids. A free roam patrol mode is also available for each planet and features public events.
PvP features objective-based modes, as well as traditional deathmatch game modes.
Players take on the role of a Guardian, protectors of Earth’s last safe city as they wield a power called Light to protect the City from different alien races.
