Destiny Multiplayer Can be Avoided, Option to Play Solo
Can you do so offline though? Still not confirmed.
Though Bungie has been boasting about the amazing features of Destiny, wherein your game can be joined by a myriad of players with public events and the like, many gamers have wondered if you can play the game all on your lonesome for the campaign mode.
In the recent Bungie Mailbag, the developer answered that, “Players who come from expansive universes found in MMOs might enjoy exploring our worlds, assuming they can handle the fact that we’re filling them with the explosive threats and heart pounding action that we think makes games fun. RPG players will be able to invest pretty deeply in their character, assuming their aim is true enough to earn the rewards they’ll need to earn new loot, weapons, and gear.
“As for playing solo, this question still comes to us a lot, and we’re happy to answer it again. The company you keep, the challenges you tackle, the war you wage will all be products of the choices you make. If you never want to have a cooperative or competitive experience in Destiny, and if you want to experience every cinematic in private, you’ll have the option.
“We believe you’ll be having way less fun, and we think you may find it really difficult to resist the pull of our cooperative vortex, but when we say we’re building activities for every mood, that includes players who don’t want to party up.”
However, Bungie earlier stated that Destiny would always be played online. Does this mean you’ll be able to experience the campaign offline when playing solo? The question still remains for Bungie to answer. Meanwhile, Destiny will be releasing in 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4.
