In Destiny, you will be able to play as a class called Fallen Captain, and these types serve to further demonstrate Bungie’s outstanding ability to design cool helmets. Also, they built a physical statue of one and are taking it to their Gamescom booth. They filmed a little featurette about it, which you can watch below. If you don’t care about statues, you should watch for the sweet original Destiny score that plays in the background.

At the Activision booth at E3 they had a 122-ft. superwidescreen projection screen called the Ronut (it wrapped around where viewers stood to watch) showing off their games. It had a sort of demo reel for Destiny in the rotation, and Bungie today released the track from the game that played over the reel. It’s by Marty O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori, it’s called Awakening, and it’s quite good. Listen here. Kinda gets me excited about the game.

Sometimes, things don’t quite work exactly as intended in MMOs, and so things need to be adjusted. In the case of the free-to-play MMOFPS Planetside 2, one such thing is server populations. They are unbalanced, says Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley, and so server mergers are on the way.

Survarium, the free-to-play MMOFPS from former Stalker developers Vostok Games, will go into beta at the end of the year. The firm noted on its website it plans to “open beta game access to a larger number of players,” and it will likely be an open beta. In the case of a “huge influx of new players,” the developers said it could “temporarily hold up the admission of new players to ensure increased server capacities.” You can view the development timeline here. An alpha test containing a working PvP mode, four game maps, two factions, and an in-game system of tasks, is slated for Q2 2013.
