Leaks Bring Bungie's Date with Destiny Forward

Posted by Sammy Barker

Can't stop the flow

Bungie is expected to announce Destiny on 17th February, but it may have been beaten to the punch. Joystiq has got its hands on a couple of promotional posters, which show the game’s logo and lead characters. Apparently, the hoardings will be available from GameStop stores on Monday, presumably as rewards for pre-orders.

According to the documentation included with the displays, the hotly anticipated sci-fi shooter will allow you to build your own character and unlock customisable weapons, gear, and vehicles in an online universe. It sounds a little bit like DUST 514 to us, though we’re obviously expecting an additional layer of polish. Apparently the title will feature competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes, in addition to public and social activities.

There’s no mention of platforms on the posters, but the PlayStation 3 was listed in a recent leak. It was originally thought that the Activision published title would be a timed Xbox 360 exclusive, but that's likely to have changed over the past few months.

@ThatOneBlackGuy Yeah, I know these guys made Halo, but I'm really not all that excited about this to be honest. I hope it surprises me. Right now, I couldn't care less.

@get2sammyb Bungie could do great things, if they got out of their comfort zone. It's almost like their too afraid to try, though. I feel like this could interest, but with all this Sony related news lately, my mind doesn't have time for anything else.

If online is a really huge unavoidable component then I'll have to take a miss on this one.

The more the merrier. I liked Halo, im not much of a fan but I'm always happy for new IPs.

I'm one who thinks exclusives should be absolutely avoided, I find them a dumb approach (ofc I would always choose a PS version)

I'm a huge fan of the Halo series so I'm looking forward to this. That said, the shooter I'm more interested in is Killzone Mercenary for Vita. It seems to be doing things a little different than the typical FPS we get these days.
