About this game
Centuries from now, most of civilization is laid to waste because of events surrounding the coming of a massive, mysterious orb called The Traveler and its ancient enemy. You are a Guardian, a warrior capable of harnessing The Traveler’s power. Together with your Ghost, set out to discover the ruins of great Golden Age civilizations, from the Earth and the Moon to the planets Mars and Venus.
- Destiny mixes elements from massively multiplayer online games and first-person shooters into an action-packed experience set in a persistent online world.
- Take part in the Crucible mode for intense arena-based PvP action, or get your squad together and enter Strike mode for a structured co-op experience.
- Reach the end game and take part in six-player Raids for epic loot.
It’s not quite the epic space-faring journey we were expecting, but for the time being, we’ll sit back and enjoy the ride.
Destiny feels like the key elements of an FPS and an MMO gently resting shoulder to shoulder, instead of being fused together in a truly creative way. It plays and looks great, and offers many, many hours of entertainment to anyone okay with repeating the same tasks, but it isn’t exactly the game-changing science fiction epic we felt it was aspiring to.
