One of the big crowd-pleasers at Sony’s E3 media brief was the multiplayer demo for Bungie’s new operatic sci-fi shooter Destiny; We got a replay of the demo at the Activision booth later in the week and you could tell the team was having a little more fun with it. More importantly, the seamless transition between the two player action early on into the massive Fire Team mode against the enemy dropships and ‘tanks’ was in full effect and had us clamoring for more. Check out the full demo after the break:
The game exudes a great vibe and Bungie’s sure to have another hit on their hands early next year when it comes out for XB-One, PS4, PC, 360, and PS3. Here at Gaming Trend we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on our Best New Franchise of E3 2013 winner as the release gets closer.
