New Video Game Releases 2014 – Destiny
First-person shooters can be big-budget affairs with astoundingly high production values, and no one does it quite like Bungie, the studio behind the original Halo games. After handing off the series to Microsoft’s (MSFT) 343 Industries, Bungie started working on Destiny, which is already being looked at as one of the most anticipated new video game releases in 2014.
Destiny is an open-world shooter that combines elements from role-playing games and first-person shooters, similar to games like Borderlands. And typical of Bungie, the game appears to be dripping with interesting gameplay and story elements. Players will create a character from one of three classes and set out to defend their homeland from hostile alien forces in a post-apocalyptic future.
The new video game will feature live events that aren’t necessarily planned by the programmers, bringing a fresh element to the gameplay and marking a significant advancement in gaming AI. Destiny releases onto Xbox and PlayStation consoles in September.
