Destiny was one of the most anticipated video games of 2014 and it is among the most popular titles of 2015 as well. Released ahead of the 2014 holiday season, Destiny offers a first-person shooter experience with elements of role-playing. This genre mixture easily turned the game into the most successful new gaming franchise ever. But what is so special about it?
Even though the development of Destiny’s plot can be a bit sluggish at times, its general idea is quite gripping. The story takes place in the far-away future, where humankind has found a way to travel and inhabit planets different from the Earth. A mystic figure called the Traveler helped them with achieve that, but later he was sent into hibernation by an even more mysterious entity – Darkness. As a result, the Earth has just one city, which is protected by a group of warriors. Gamers take the role of one of them and explore both Earth and other planets in our solar system.
One of the most impressive things about Destiny is the quality of the graphics in it. Landscapes can take your breath away. In addition, the action is never-ending with new combats on every angle. Another charm of Destiny is that players are allowed to customize their warriors and to add new ones to the group. Also, they can develop their character even in multiplayer modes.
But there a few setbacks as well. For instance, the narrative is not fully developed and there is a feeling of repetition at times. Another thing that players can find annoying is that they often end up returning on the same locations despite the fact that the game features four different worlds. Nevertheless, these things do not really spoil the fun and gamers can easily lose themselves when action comes.
Destiny is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One and its regular price is $59.99. Most online retailers, like Best Buy, have them in their catalogue of products. Amazon.com offers the game in various editions, including Standard, Limited, Digital Guardian Edition, Ghost and Expansion Pass. The Microsoft Store, on the other hand, often discounts its price or features it in Xbox bundles. Regardless of where you choose to order Destiny, you are guaranteed to enjoy the experience that the game will offer you.
