The Universe of Destiny

For all of the collating and colonization during an unprecedented time spent amongst the stars, The Collapse has halted humanities rapid ascent dead in its tracks. The Golden Age has ended, and the daunting fear of the unknown has returned. This is the basic pretence for Destiny, and the reason as to why our position in the universe is as fragile as it ever has been. After a long time basking in the warm glow of prosperity, humanity has been forcibly regressed. Here we are, once again a miniscule fleck on the cold cheek of the universe, a race of

Bungie Weekly Update 3.28.14

This week at Bungie, we welcomed some hungry new friends into our kitchen. One of the best parts of managing the Bungie Community is giving people their first taste of what we’re cooking up. I get to remove the lids from our cauldrons and pass them a spoon. In truth, what I really do is sit them down in front of a dev kit and drop a controller into their hands, but you get the idea. Destiny gets a little more delicious every week. With so many cooks stirring the brew, you would expect the aroma to get a little

Destiny Focus: Factions

Destiny’s Character Customization Explained

At GDC this year, Bungie explains that Destiny will allow players to enhance and customize their characters to a whole new level, “offering an ambitious number of skins, armor, weapons and other items for players to work with.” Check out the full article here.   Bungie’s technical art lead Scott Shepherd discussed the work going into Destiny‘s extensive character creation system. Characters’ bodies are broken into four “slots”: the head, chest, arms and legs. Throughout Destiny, players will be able to collect new pieces that can be equipped into these slots. Shepherd said the development team is working to create

It’s always nice to take the long way when you need to get to the other side of the studio. This place is wonderful for wandering. Every screen is another window into a fascinating world. Even the shortest distance between two points might offer a glimpse at something brand new, unexpected, and amazing. Yesterday, Parsons caught me window shopping, and pointed me in the right direction with a helpful emote. “Go that way.
