Destiny developer Bungie has posted a gallery of panoramic screens that show off a range of new locations. Try not to stare longingly at them too much.
You’ll find my in-depth Destiny alpha impressions here, with details on seriously everything that Bungie included, from PVP multiplayer to single-player, and even co-op Strike missions.
As part of Bungie’s weekly update blog, studio community manager David “DeeJ” Dague posted a string of panoramic environment images from within the game, as created by technical artist Nate Hawbaker.
Here they are:
This is the last human city – known as The Tower – with the Traveller floating in the background.
This is the Cosmodrome, which was the first area visited in the Destiny alpha.
Hellmouth Citadel can be found on the Moon.
This is our first close-up look at the Shattered Coast area of Venus.
Lastly, this Mars image lies beyond the Shattered City. Looks dangerous.
Deej was asked a few questions about Destiny’s July 17 beta phase on PS4 and PS3 – specifically – if it would be under NDA or not. This basically means if you the playing public, will be able to talk about or share clips of your gameplay.
The short answer is yes, you will, but Deej said, “On July 17th, the Beta will be an open stage for your theatrics. I’ll be happy to say this as many times as it needs to be said. You should have seen me chasing down leaks during the Pre-Alpha, or even the Alpha prior to E3.
“The Beta is our time to unite as a community and see who can make the most noise. We want to see who can stream, share, upload, and kick some ass. Become legend, people. Do it live and in front of an adoring public. Tell your friends. Pass it on.”
There you go. Will you be taking part? Let us know below.
