People were “too quick” to compare Destiny’s enemies to Halo’s Covenant, says Bungie

Destiny developer Bungie has assured fans that Destiny’s bad guys are more diverse than Halo’s Covenant, and that gamers were too quick to make comparisons between both games.

In a new Mail Sack blog, Bungie addressed several questions from fans, including one that asked the studio what the size of a player-controlled Guardian is when compared with a hulking Cabal enemy.

Here’s an image of Guardians fighting some Cabal if you aren’t sure what they’re talking about:

Bungie replied, “Depends on the Cabal. The Guardians won’t be the only fighting force in Destiny teeming with unique warriors. Take the Fallen, for example. When people saw them at E3, they were all too quick to compare them to the Elites you fought in Halo. In truth, the Fallen are as varied and diverse as the Covenant as a whole.

“Check out the demo again, and see how many varieties you can spot. Some of the smaller targets, like the Shanks and Dregs, will draw your fire. The larger crews, the ones that include Vandals or Captains, will have you wishing you brought that Fireteam. And let’s not forget about those moments when we’ll drop something as big as a Devil Walker in your path.

“The Cabal, along with the Vex and the Hive, are equally rich in their varieties. There are a lot of bad guys in Destiny. We need heroes to push them back whence they came. Apply within.”

What do you make of Destiny and Halo? Do they appear similar in any way to you or are they both quite different? Let us know what you think below.
