Destiny PvP Needs To Be Unlocked

Posted May 3, 2014 by Bunneh3000 in News

The competitive multiplayer portion of Destiny apparently won’t be available when you first pop in the disc.

Bungie is diving into testy waters with its ambitious MMOFPS game Destiny. There is plenty of hype and as it stands, a number of testers and press have managed to get their hands on the game and begin providing feedback on the experience. For some, the experience was a bit more negative than they expected. Many of the players were playing for a short while and because they were familiar with the game mechanics decided to jump right into the PvP. Unfortunately, when they got there, they were quickly trounced by the other players that had already been there for a while. As a result, many hated their first taste of Destiny.

“- they would roll a new character, play through the first mission then go right into PvP, and they would just get really beaten up by the other players because they didn’t have a super ability yet and they’d only got an auto rifle from the first mission.

“And they said, ‘this is really awful, this is a terrible experience!'” – Bungie’s Tyson Green

To remedy this Bungie decided to make the first few hours of the game separate from the competitive multiplayer portion of the game. That way the player would go through a few missions and unlock a decent weapon and a super ability which is apparently necessary to survive amongst other players.

Whole lotta dyin' goin' on!

Also revealed by Tyson Green was the fact that Destiny also has user generated content much like the Forge of Halo days. Thankfully, the content is able to be saved and used throughout the different platforms when tied to your account.
