Destiny’s public events will be easy to join with “no lobbies, no loading screens”
If you are the ultimate badass, you will be able to play Destiny without the help of your comrades, according to Bungie; however, since this scenario is unlikely, you’ll want to team up with two other to form a Fireteam or link up with other Guardians to tackle the game’s larger challenges you will come across in public events.
However, that being said, Destiny “will never require you to team up with other people in campaign missions,” said Bungie in a Q&A on the PS Blog. “You’ll see other players along the way, but you can choose to ignore them.
“That said, we think you’ll find that playing with other Guardians is quick, painless, and a ton of fun. It’s always your choice, though.”
Bungie said the number of players you will have to work with to defeat the most dangerous enemies will vary, especially when entering competitive multiplayer or Raids. Plus, the gear you earn in competitive multiplayer can be taken into other modes, such as PvP.
The amount of players possible in competitive multiplayer and Raids will be revealed at a later date though.
Public events in the game will be easy to join as well, sort of like in an MMO, where all you will have to do is be in range, and open fire.
“No lobbies. No loading screens. The frontier is open, and filled with encounters you can join, or skip right past, on your way to something you’ve deemed momentarily more important,” said the firm.
You can find out more on the game through the link, although many of the bits mentioned are already known.
Those who pre-order Destiny at participating retailers worldwide will get early access to the Destiny beta in early 2014, and a public beta will go love sometime next spring.
Destiny releases on PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014 and according to Bungie, the game is bigger than anything it has ever built.
