Destiny website updated with new information about classes, enemies

Bungie revamps its website and stocks it full of new game information.

Ahead of Destiny's release this September, former Halo developer developer Bungie has revamped the game's website and updated it with new information about its character classes and enemies, among other things.

On the website you'll find short introduction videos for the Titan, Warlock, and Hunter classes, as well as information about some of the locations you'll visit, like Earth, the Moon, Venus, and Mars. On top of that, the new Destiny website includes new information about the enemies you'll square off against, including the Fallen, Hive, Vex, and Cabal.

A beta for Destiny will begin this summer first for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, before coming later to Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Preordering the game will guarantee you access to the beta. The game launches in full on September 9 and publisher Activision has major commercial expectations for it.

I was already sold on this game but watching the Titan trailer just sealed the deal, Justice Knee FTW!

Can we customize the way they look? I assume the answer is yes but I haven't heard anything concrete.

Another game the master race doesn't get. Us console peasants are saddened. Guess it's just our "Destiny" to get all the good stuff ;)

If Bungies fails at this, they are REALLY gonna wish they stuck with Halo.

Everyone looks the same.  Did they opt-out of facial design devs, and so had to give everybody masks??

Can someone explain why this isnt coming out on PC. A shared world shooter that is this expansive and of this caliber sounds like a perfect recipe for PC.

Sounds like there was a clause in the publishing deal with Activision, tying them down exclusively to consoles......sigh...what a waste!

This game will have a lot to prove. It has gotten a ton of hype (thanks to it being a former ms developer who is now multi platform, as well as the flashy videos and media) but will need to show substance.

I don't think Bungie has done a great game since H3 and this looks like a basic mash of Halo and BL.

I do hope it can be amazing, as I adore co op focused games. So I'll be eager to see if it delivers this fall.

There was so much hype for this game at E3 last year, but I swear I haven't seen any other footage of it or hype on this website? And it's out in September?! I don't get it. I remember being super excited about this, now I feel like I don't care?

Why is the hunter wearing the headpiece of a burka?

This is my most anticipated along with Halo 5. Looks incredible. Will be awesome to see two Bungie brainchilds square off against tone another. my FPS dreams are soon to be fulfilled.

It would be sweet if you can visit some of the moons of Jupiter like Io and Europa. 


How's the view from out there? Lol.

@StaticPenguin  

Can't give you a link, but yes, customization of armour and weapons are a big part of Destiny :)

@tommynj  There's plenty of gameplay footage? Hell, the clips of the classes on the Destiny page are all from gameplay.. I swear, some people don't even freaking try. Just automatically decide to pick on random things that aren't even relevant..

@tommynj  Dude...it's Bungie.  Gameplay being great is the least of our worries.

@VakarianGirl  Outside you wear your helmet. When you're in the last city ( name unknown ) you can remove the helmet and can see faces.

@radikel  Too used to consoles? maybe they figure there's more money on consoles than PC? maybe PC is planned but not until the console version is a success??

Add: just watched some more footage, while I'm still a tad skeptical, I think it will at least be a fun and flashy co op romp

@foodrules Bungie has given GameInformer a lot of exclusive articles. Gamespot has gotten none. I had to go looking to find the link below.

@krystyla  Burka? That looks unique because its the first time I am seeing this in a game,some women wear burka or headpiece in my country.

@krystyla To make it look different compared to the other classes. they want you to easily be able to identify each class while playing the game. And each has one specific characteristic that stands out.

@origkillmachine Halo 5 will be a continuation of the story from Halo 4 Destiny is like a combination of Defiance and Borderlands 2 and Star Wars. Both will be good , but will be like comparing an apple to a pear. very similar yet very different.

@The-Neon-Seal You will be able to visit planets in the Solar system. Specifically, Mars and the Moon.

@The-Neon-Seal @radikelIts an MMO shooter, not releasing it on PC is really stupid since PC has the biggest MMO gamer base and its always online so no worries about piracy and its a freaking shooter? PC have the best controls for shooters, i can't stand first person shooters with a controller, maybe a slow cover based shooters like gears of war or uncharted but never a first person shooter.


saying "because they don't want it to" is like saying they don't like money.

@shinrae5  I'm very skeptical about the multiplayer shared-world stuff being so innovative and somehow so amazing :).

@spartanx169x  Hunter gets the cloak that lengthens as you progress. Warlock gets an armband thingy that glows not sure what else it does, and Titan.. I forget what they get. lmao

@spartanx169x  I wanna visit Virmire,Eden Prime,Feros,PSR B1620-26,Epsilon Eridani,V391 Pegasi,Gliese 581 and some Nebulas.

@spartanx169x @The-Neon-SealI know that. I'm asking if you can specifically visit the aformentioned place. I ask, mainly because the outer solar system is way more interesting than the inner solar system, but gamespot only mentioned places in the inner solar system. Unless they're saving that for Destiny 2? ;)

@futureops @Gravelord_Nito@radikelyou do realize that the games are console's legacy? that it was the consoles that started the whole gaming thing? besides, i have a pretty killer pc, but do i run around calling myself master race? no, bcs its pathetic.

@botroo3 @The-Neon-Seal @radikel  I'd bet that them not wanting to do it ultimately has something to do with money :).  Without going into a bunch of possibilities and theories, I think it simply comes down to a PC release would not make them more money, or not enough money.


Or it will come later, and still it will be due to some reason(s) related to money :).

@foodrules MoreConsole on Youtube also has many vids up about what Destiny is about.

@spartanx169x Ya the hunter's cloak starts off as a smallish like.. scarf almost on the back that lengthens as your character progress', eventually going down to knee length. It's one of the ways Bungie wants you to be able to distinguish a characters progression and class.
