Destiny to be trampling Halo soon?
By now you all might have heard about Destiny, this big title everyone was waiting for desperately, developed by Bungie and published by Activision, just released a month ago.
What you might not know about is that recent feedback from Bungie report that over the past three weeks more players have been actively playing Destiny than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach combined during the same period accordingly. This is an astonishing fact if we take into account that Halo 3 and Halo: Reach are one of the most famous and played console games ever created around the world, both still have tens of thousands active players even with today competitors such as: Battlefield, Call of Duty, Arma, Counter Strike, etc.
No wonder Destiny has had such an impact in the gaming community, we are all aware that shooters are one of the most famous videogames genres around, that is no secret to anyone, but Destiny has gain a place in this overcrowded market by changing a few aspects of this genre for better, let me explain.
Destiny is not only a shooter where you can join with your friends and do PvP like mostly the rest on the market, Destiny, combines PvP with PvE, plus also adds a complex looting and encounter system. You have both options, whether playing alone, go along your friends against other players o simply gather up for a common goal, behind of all this there is an active community of developers coming up with new events and challenges monthly, which makes the game very attractive yet addictive at the same time.
Destiny has successfully mixed shooting action and role-playing looting rewards, something that no other game has had until now. It has simply been the first one to do it, and doing it pretty damn right so far. The gaming community is still growing alarmingly after a month of its release and it’s predicted to be growing even bigger and faster as soon as Christmas gets near.
You are probably missing some nice stuff if you own a PlayStation or an XBOX and you have not yet put your hands on it.
