New Destiny vidoc for 'The Taken King' warns "No Legend Is Safe"
Bungie and Activision revealed ‘The Taken King‘ for Destiny at E3, with the trailer ultimately getting Guardians pretty excited for the future of the game.
Today, they have released a new vidoc (developer diary/behind-the-scenes documentary) that illustrates just what players can expect when they come face to face with Oryx, Father of Crota, the Taken King.
The Taken King expansion looks pretty damn exciting, with Oryx able to interrupt player’s during their fight against other alien forces in order to add a whole new challenge to the game. Bungie have stated they wanted to make the aliens seem even more “alien like”, so expect teleporting and invisible Hive with deadly new skills in their reportoires.
Bungie want players to feel a sense of urgency, that Oryx is hunting them and that no matter what level they are, no one is safe.
On the plus side, Bungie’s knack for clever puzzles (like those in the Vault of Glass) is in fine form inside Ory’s massive fortress, and of course, there is loot galore.
New sub-classes have also been created for the Guardians, finally giving players the ability to use that one element they’ve been missing out on, but also allowing for more diverse and strategic gameplay – the Hunter’s energy bow is pretty awesome!
In addition to new campaign missions and subclasses, The Crucible is getting new game modes: Mayhem and Rift. Mayhem is essentially Team Deathmatch, though much more chaotic. Rift injects Destiny’s multiplayer with some much needed objective-based gameplay, and feels like Destiny’s version of Capture The Flag.
Finally, Bungie and Activision snuck another juicy little nugget of information at the end of the video. Destiny’s base game is getting bundled up with all three DLC expansions in the “Legendary Edition”.
