Bungie: Gamers "too quick" to compare Destiny enemies to Halo's Covenant

People were "too quick" to compare Destiny's enemies to Halo's iconic Covenant forces, developer Bungie Studios has said in its latest Mail Sack feature.

Describing the four-armed Fallen enemy type in Destiny, Bungie said this antagonist force is actually more varied and diverse than the Covenant are as a whole.

"Take the Fallen, for example. When people saw them at E3, they were all too quick to compare them to the Elites you fought in Halo," Bungie said. "In truth, the Fallen are as varied and diverse as the Covenant as a whole."

Bungie then recommended players watch the demo again for further evidence of the differences and examples of variety.

"Check out the demo again, and see how many varieties you can spot. Some of the smaller targets, like the Shanks and Dregs, will draw your fire," Bungie said. "The larger crews, the ones that include Vandals or Captains, will have you wishing you brought that Fireteam. And let's not forget about those moments when we'll drop something as big as a Devil Walker in your path."

Destiny, along with an all-new Halo title, is currently in development for release in 2014.
