Destiny

Post by purebeau69 » Mon Jun 30, 2014 8:11 am

so who is going to play this on Xbox One? The game sounds great if you have people you can link up and go on missions with. I'm not sure how great it will be soloing it.

Bungie is usually solid so I'm not worried about content or gameplay. I do worry about Activision's involvement and how much input they had on the game itself.

I will.

Sorry I missed this. Haha. And I played the Alpha. It was great! So I have no fears of Watch_Dogs syndrome where I buy it and walk away after 2 days from sheer exhaustion.
Do this. Don't do that. Stay back in line. Where's tax receipt? Fill out form. Let's see license. Submit six copies. Exit only. No left turn. No right turn. Queue up and pay fine. Take back and get stamped. Drop dead— but first get permit.

Most of my Xbox Live friends either haven't upgraded yet to next gen or switched over to PC / PS4. Has Bungie said anything about cross platform play? I'm assuming PSN players won't be able to link with Xbox Live players?

Trust me if this game was cross-plat, they would be shouting it from every mountain top they could find. So probably not.

I'm bummed because I want to buy this, but I want to go digital (fuck discs, so archaic), though I won't get Beta access in late July if I go digital.

Looking into securing a X1 beta code in spite of my refusal to buy disc. Will let you know if I get one, we'll have to play together!

yessir. I've heard the beta includes both multiplayer (Crucible I believe is what Bungie is calling it) and also single player missions that you can link up with other people and play through.

Yeah I played in the Alpha and really enjoyed the game. It was very fun and addictive. Good shooting & exploration.

Multiplayer felt very halo, though the super abilities definitely changed up the pace of play.

dumb question...will my X1 automatically download the beta when it goes live? I activated my Bungie.net account, my beta access code, and linked my Xbox account but I don't see any queue information in my X1 dashboard or anything. I looked through the smartglass app and the destiny app as well and didn't see anything about this either.

My first guess would be no. You typically have to find the item in the Store. Then download from there. If you have digital rights to the game (an 'entitlement' we call 'em). Then when you visit the page for the first time, it should give you the option to download & install.

I read somewhere that there was (or will be) an update that allows remote purchase / downloads? I'm trying to figure out how I can get this downloaded while I'm at work so I don't have to wait lol.

Auto downloads are a thing. I just am not sure as to how that works on X1, though I probably should.
