Kinda looks like a Mass effect, halo, defiance combo. I know defiance was not great, but some of the MMo elements that defiance uses are similar to what destiny is doing. The random events in destiny are similar to the arkfalls in defiance. it is can excel in what defiance fell short in it should be great.
delayed?...are you sure you wouldn't like to see what happens in the 9 months between now and release first? also, destiny is far closer to borderlands than either of those games.
Did you think the game was originally planned to release September next year?
to my knowledge, there was no solid release date before this one, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. the only thing that was pushed back was the beta, and there's no guarantee that an earlier beta gets an earlier game.
Usually a game that gets announced with game play footage does not take 1 year and a half to get released. The beta was not going to be anything different than a soft launch seeing as even now its scheduled for Summer 2014. They never said anything on launch date but everyone expected late Q1 early Q2 and that was probably the intended release date as well.
Looks like Mass Effect, Halo, and Borderlands to me.
I am so excited for it, in their words Destiyn has something for "different moods of gaming". Do I want to to go explore environments on my own? I can do that. Do I want to jump into some classic competitive multiplayer (made by Bungie, no less)? I can do that. How about some co-op action through a 5-man fireteam raid? I can totally do that too.
