Bungie's 4 player online co-op shooter Destiny is looking a sight for sore eyes. The recent gameplay video allowed you to bask in its majesty, but what about those people who want to know a little bit more? The new Development Diary may just help. It includes new footage of the game, but also information on the multitude of weapons and loot available in the game.
Due out on PS3, PS4, 360 and One on September 9th, Destiny Day is drawing ever closer. With a team whose pedigree includes the magnificent stability that is Halo co-op, Destiny could prove to be a system seller for both Sony and Microsoft.
The new Dev Diary is just the thing for the player who likes to know how a game is developed:
Destiny's arsenal is vast and varied: fire-spewing shotguns and head-melting fusion rifles coexist beside traditional pistols and rifles. Weapons span three broad categories: Primary (autorifles and hand cannons), Special (shotguns and sniper rifles), and Heavy (rockets and belt-fed machineguns).
There's plenty of variety within each category, too. The autorifle sub-category include burst-fire pulse rifles, single-shot carbines, and an array of full-auto assault rifles that prove murderously effective at close range. Despite the sprawling arsenal, Bungie's designers are taking pains to hand-tune each weapon's look, feel, and lore, making them feel like natural extensions of the game's fiction, not the expressions of some rampant computer algorithm.
