Destiny has finally been released on September 9th, and the game made 500 million dollars on the first day. Bungie, the creators, referred to Destiny as a “shared-world shooter”, because the game shares many characteristics of a massive multiplayer online game (mmog) but also lacks some too. The game was released for the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Destiny had gamers head over heels in love with it since the beta.

The game lets the player chose a class out of three choices from hunter, titan, or warlock. Each of the classes has its own abilities that equals each other out. The hunter is more focused on powerful attacks and mobility. They are best for stealth and ranged attacks. However, their turn offs are that they do not have much armor protection for the sake of speed. The hunter is known for their special attack, “the golden gun”.The gun is one of the most powerful weapons, being a one hit kill. The Titans is a walking tank; it’s a full support class. The titan specializes in heavy weapons, like light machine guns. The class is meant to take hits, but the titan is a very slow moving class because of all the armor that is equipped. The class’s special consist of a pound to the ground that literally destroys the enemies.

After a person decides on a class, the race is next; human, awoken, or exo. Next they chose basic facial features, i.e. hair or eye color. Finally, the person gets to play the story which is 9-10 hours long, but don’t fret because you can walk freely on any of the planets and do side missions to unlock better loot.

If a player does not want to play the campaign then there is always player versus player (pvp) or on destiny “The Crucible.” In the crucible there are tons of different game modes the person can play, like clash, combine arms, control, rumble, salvage, or skirmish. On top of that there are multiple maps to play on. The players can go on Earth- the maps are Twilight Gap, Rusted Lands and Exodus Blue; on The Moon it’s First Light and Anomaly. The gamers can play on Mars with the maps: Bastion, Fire Base and Blind Watch, but it doesn’t stop there because they can play on Venus, Shores of Time and Mercury, or Burning Shire.

Destiny has tons of activities for anyone to do while enjoying the game and so much more, for the creators already have add-ons and downloadable content planned for later on. The game is  $59.96 so the same amount of any new game. Destiny is just so much fun in my opinion, but don’t listen to me, go try it for yourselves.
