ALL LOCATIONS WITHIN DESTINY
When you first get your hands on Destiny, Bungie’s newest blockbuster title, you’ll be granted access to the biggest game world that Bungie has ever created. The game itself takes the player to numerous locations and planets within our known solar system, including Earth, our moon, and other planets. Below is a description of all the locations in Destiny that we know will be shipped with the game at launch.
Earth is the first location players experience. This is where Destiny’s story begins, and where the player learns how the game is played. There are numerous areas to explore as well as a handful of Story missions to progress in Destiny’s campaign. The enemy race native to Earth is primarily The Fallen, but players will encounter the Hive as well. Earth is also home to The Devils’ Lair, a cooperative Strike mission where players must take down the powerful Sepiks Prime. After a few hours of gameplay on Earth, players will be ready to conquer the other planets and locations available in Destiny.
The Moon, while it may be Destiny’s smallest location, is one of its most exciting. The Hive have become the native enemy on the Moon and have excavated deep under the Moon’s surface. This means that while there may only be a few locations on the surface, the deep caves and dungeons of what is known as The Hellmouth are vast and explorable. One particular Strike mission titled The Summoning Pits brings players deep into the Hellmouth. You see some awesome gameplay on the Moon in this video.
Venus is probably the most mysterious of Destiny’s locations, and it is possible that it may even be the largest. Below is a map of all the activities and locations available on Venus.
As you can see, there are a handful of Story missions, two Strikes (titled Winter’s Run and The Nexus), as well as Destiny’s first Raid, The Vault of Glass. You can read more about Raids and endgame content here. The primary enemy on Venus are the Vex, mysterious time traveling robots fighting against the Guardians.
Mars is Destiny’s highest level planet. This means the enemies in free-roam and open areas will be higher than those on any other planet. The native enemies of Mars are the massive Cabal, heavily armored and extremely tough to take down. Mars also has two Strike missions, on of which is exclusive to Playstation users (The Dust Palace).
Mercury isn’t an explorable location in Destiny, nor are there Story or Strike missions, however, there is one multiplayer map set on the burning planet. The map is called "Burning Shrine” and features Vex geometry that shifts and changes sight lines in the middle of gameplay. This map is only available as a part of the Trials of Osiris activity/gamemode. It requires the player to be level 20 as well as a rare in game currency to enter the competition.
As of now, The Reef is a 100% mystery. Fans have been wondering what it was ever since we saw the above concept art. The interesting part about the Reef is that it a location that Bungie has created and put in our solar system. The Reef is rumored to be the home of the Awoken, lead by the Queen of the Reef, who offers bounties for the player that can earn them special and unique gear. The Reef may also be the location of some of the game’s final story missions. While it isn’t confirmed to be explorable, there will certainly be a handful of activities for players to experience.
It’s also important to briefly touch on Destiny’s planned expansions, The House of Wolves and The Dark Below. Both of these expansions will not be adding new planets, however they will add additional missions and activities to the current planets (Earth, Moon, etc.), as well as new multiplayer maps. However, Bungie has stated that adding new locations isn’t out of the picture, it just depends on fan feedback.
In earlier trailers, other locations were mentioned such as Jupiter’s moon Europa, as well as Saturn. We haven’t seen gameplay of these specific planets, but who knows, Bungie may have a few surprises left for September 9th.
Today Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Unity has been delayed until November 11th, or as many of us call it "Halo Day”. With the 2 extra weeks, it will help the Ubisoft team on minor changes that will make big differences in the long run for the game. Below is a statement released by Ubisoft:
Now that the team has a near-finished game, those extra two weeks will allow them to focus on those minor adjustments that can make a big difference – and ultimately help Ubisoft deliver on the promise of the game. "We’re very confident in the game we’re making,” Pontbriand says.
This small delay is also about taking total ownership and doing what’s right for both the gamers and the development team. "Making games is not a precise science. It’s a leap of faith. There’s a good level of subjectivity and creativity,” he says. "We have a bunch of us who have spent two, three years or more on this project. It’s a huge personal investment. People have been truly dedicated to this game. For them it’s also important to make a game that they can be proud of.” That’s why the team will continue to toil even beyond the ship date – right up to actual release – building a Day 1 patch that offers even more improvements to Unity.
UPDATE: Gamespot has now released brand new footage of Lockout for Halo 2: Anniversary, in it we can see the new dynamic element is falling ice from the ceilings of the map.
Lockout – the iconic snow and ice map from Halo 2 has been confirmed as the next map to be getting the Anniversary treatment in Halo 2 Anniversary.
In a news post on Gamespot – Max Hoberman announced the newest map remake, adding that while staying true to the original, the map has been modified slightly for a more modern feel.
What types of changes will we see? Hoberman writes, "Most prominent among these are a bit of cover added to the ‘Elbow,’ the long walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower, and a dynamic element that should help counter an entrenched group of enemies. Of course this can be disabled in Forge for players who want a near-match of the original experience.”
With PAX Prime taking place this weekend, many players are eager to see what maps and gametypes will be used in the Halo 2 Anniversary PAX Prime Showdown – with Lockout being announced a little ahead of time, it seems like we’ll be getting a glimpse of this map in some competitive gameplay.
Below you will find a few pieces of concept art from the remastered version of Lockout – although, the map may not be called Lockout in the final product. Remember that just like Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, the multiplayer maps are getting new & unique names to separate them from their originals.
With maps like Ascension, Zanzibar, Coagulation, Sanctuary and now Lockout remade – what map are you eager to see next? Remember, there’s only one more remake remaining.
UPDATE 2: After reaching out to Xbox Support, one Destiny fan has now discovered that Destiny will be available for pre-purchase three days before the games launch. Destiny is currently still viewable on the Xbox One, but has been taken down on the Marketplace website.
UPDATE: Currently, the Xbox store now says that Destiny is "not available” for purchase, but it is assumed that the pre-load access is slowly being rolled out to all users. Keep an eye on the store if you are interested in pre-ordering!
Users on NeoGAF have just discovered that Destiny has finally been put up on the Xbox Live marketplace for pre-order and early pre-load. This has been long awaited news for fans who have been waiting for the chance to purchase Destiny digitally.
Destiny is the second game to be available for pre-load on Xbox One, following Madden NFL 15. Pre-loading allows games to be downloaded before the release, but the game itself will not be accessible until 12:01 AM PDT on their respective release dates. In addition, Forza Horizon 2, FIFA 15, and Sunset Overdrive are all being planned for pre-load availability as well.
Destiny launches on September 9th, 2014, and will be available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4. Pre-loading will be available for both the Standard Edition of the game, as well as the Digital Guardian Edition, which contains the Expansion pass for both planned Destiny expansions, as well as bonus content.
There will be some changes to the website for the future of our community and the release of Destiny.
Look out for the upcoming changes for better or for worse on the website.
So far there has been few changes around
1)Got rid of the ranking structures on the website
With all these new games coming out, it's too much work keep up with how to present the officers ranking on the website, especially since there are now 10 Lieutenants, 10 Captains....ect.
And also with new games, mean new emblems which I might not be able to obtain.
2)Got rid of tagging and the glowy/fire bit of your name e.g. [CPT]COG ghost, if you want to have [9CPT] in front of your name , all you need to do is to change your name to include the brackets in front of your name.
There are just too many changes in officer ranking too fast to be able to keep track on whose who all the time. With the rate at our expansion, imagine having to keep track of 500 officers' tags.
3)The forums have changed. Each Game has its own section, every "introduce yourself" and Practice attendance belongs to its own Division and Squad.
For example - COG Ghost belongs to : Halo Divsion -> within Sins -> within Wrath
Go to the Halo Section
You'll enter the introductions and practice into these threads
4)From now on, only Black Suits will have access to admin and therefore the only people who can accept or reject applications.
