Destiny Teases Sparrow Racing Mode But “No Promises”
“It’s one of those shifty, no-promises answers”.
Among the many, many changes that Destiny fans have requested in the game is an official Sparrow racing mode wherein players can race each other on their little land speeders. Speaking to GameSpot at PSX, Bungie community manager Eric Osborne indicated that it could be a possibility some where down the line but didn’t promise anything.
“It’s definitely an idea that has come up at the studio. And there are dozens and dozens and dozens of cool ideas. Part of the process of sustaining [Destiny] is figuring out what’s the most bang for the buck, what’s the right feedback to go after and address, how do we deliver the experiences that players want.
“And race is definitely one of the things that has come up as a topic, so we’ll see. It’s one of those shifty, no-promises answers.
Thus far, Destiny has seen several updates with another to arrive with The Dark Below expansion that will be going live very soon. Despite the numerous updates, Bungie plans to keep updating the game and adding new things.
“We had a lot of great ideas; I think a lot of them have panned out. A lot of things are working really well in Destiny. We’ve got a lot of players coming in. We’re three months in as of Tuesday on December 9. [The Dark Below will be our] twelfth update to the game, so we’re pretty proud of the pace that we’re keeping up.
“But we’re not done. We’re going to keep addressing feedback, we’re going to keep listening to players. More bounty slots, more legendary weapons, what have you. It’s quite the fun process.”
