Destiny is “The Same Game” Across Multiple Platforms, PS4-Exclusive Features Revealed
Bungie talks a bit about its upcoming online shooter.
Bungie’s Destiny is a big hulking beast of a game and we haven’t even scratched the surface on the amount of content it holds. That being said, you won’t necessarily need to invest in next-gen hardware to experience it all according to Bungie producer Pete Parsons.
Speaking to Game Master (via Reddit), Parsons said, “Hopefully players will be pleasantly surprised by how appealing it is on [last generation hardware]. It’s the same game, that was hugely important to us. Part of some of the really big, ambitious technologies set up for this…all of this lives on one set of servers. There’s one world that we’re building, and that is extended out to multiple platforms.”
Lead designer Lars Bakken also spoke to Official PlayStation Magazine to talk about the specific features that PlayStation 4 users could expect. “We’re taking advantage of the cool things Sony’s doing with the [PS4] platform. The Share feature’s great – I love that thing. We’re also doing some cool lightbar stuff that’s extremely subtle.
“If you didn’t look for it you wouldn’t see it: when your health’s low it’s pulsing red, when your super’s ready it’s flashing yellow, when you go into Hive areas it’s pale green. A lot of people aren’t going to notice it but it makes the experience richer, and when the fans notice that stuff we love it.”
Destiny is slated to release on September 9th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. Stay tuned for more details.
