But it’s so pretty!
So listen here, I’m not a huge fan of Destiny. It’s just not my jam. But even I have to admit that it is one hell of a pretty looking game. It’s large sprawling world, really rather impressive online mechanics and awesome game-feel are truly something to be admired, whether one likes the game or not.
This hugely impressive new world that was crafted by the fine folks over at Bungie was partially brought to life, but wholly made possible through the use of Havok technology. Havok technology has been used in a vast library of games and to varying degrees.
Bungie seem to be using the Physics, Cloth and Scripting technology offered to them by Havok to make Destiny look just that little bit more gorgeous. “Havok technology has been a perfect fit for a game as ambitious and epic as Destiny, because it helps streamline the development process and lets the artists at Bungie focus on realizing their vision,” says Brian Waddle, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Havok.
Gameplay Enginer Justin Truman has said, “Bungie games have always been about robust, complex simulations creating exciting new gameplay experiences. Destiny’s living world could not have been realized without Havok’s Physics, Cloth, and Script technology. Havok technology has been a perfect fit for a game as ambitious and epic as Destiny, because it helps streamline the development process and lets the artists at Bungie focus on realizing their vision.”
