What is Destiny
No, we’re not getting all philosophical here. We’re talking about Destiny upcoming video game due out on September 9! It’s the latest project from Bungie, a developer made famous through series like Marathon, Myth, and Halo. Destiny is another first-person shooter, but it’s also a lot more than that. It’s a huge project, with some RPG elements, and it’s entirely online. Unsurprisingly, this draws comparisons with MMORPGs, but Bungie prefers to call it a “shared-world shooter” to make sure fans understand the sort of gameplay they’re in for.
And just what sort of gameplay is that? Shooting, obviously, but there are many different modes for you to select, depending on how you want to play. We aren’t even sure if these are all the modes, or if there are more yet to be announced.
For example, if you’re interested in the story—and it promises to be a science fiction story for the ages, with hints of mystery—you’re probably most interested in the Campaign. You can even play it alone if you want, although you’ll have to be online. If you’d like to play the Campaign with friends, you can go through it in co-op mode in a 3-player Fireteam. And don’t worry about other players giving you trouble, because the competitive modes are entirely separate. A short amount of time into Destiny, once you have the weapons and abilities you’ll need, competitive modes such as Skirmishes are unlocked. Skirmish mode probably won’t be the only type of competitive multiplayer in gameplay, as a mysterious mode called Faction Wars has been briefly teased.
Many Destiny cheats
will probably emerge for these modes alone. The game promises to have lots of weapons and loot, so you can expect to see hints on finding helpful items. And even if it’s not a MMORPG, Destiny’s class and ability system should make way for reference guides to abilities and upgrades. A number of cheats will probably apply across various game modes. Battle strategies, for example, will come in handy for both the Campaign and PvP.
They’ll be even more useful for some of the other modes. Consider the Strikes. Team up with other players to complete objectives, defeat enemies, and fight a boss at the end. You’ll almost certainly see hints for some of the trickier Strikes. We don’t know a whole lot about Bounty mode, but what we do know suggests there will be a specific monster for players to hunt down each week, for great rewards. And if none of these sound as though they’ll pose you a challenge, the end-game’s Raid mode sounds like it’s built to push you to your limits, even when you’re with a 6-player Fireteam. When one of the Raids was tested by Bungie, it took 45 minutes just to cross the entrance. Yeah, we expect Raid cheat guides.
Finally, if you just want to explore the awesome planets and locations in Destiny
, there’s Patrol mode. It’s a free-roaming mode, so you can do whatever you like. Of all the modes, Patrol grants you the most freedom. And we bet there’ll be Patrol cheats, too—whether it’s for items, secrets, or both, you should be able to find a guide to all the goodies hidden across the game world.
Destiny is huge, expansive, and has enough modes that it may have something for everyone.
