Bungie's Destiny heavily inspired by episodic TV

Morning everyone!

Speaking with Gamespot, Bungie's design director Joe Stanton said that Destiny has taken a different direction in terms of influences and inspirations.

"I think typically, for the Halo games, we looked at movies. But really for this game, we looked at serial television; great dramas like Lost or The Wire; Battlestar Galactica," Staten said.

"When you're building a world and you want to evolve it over time, it really helps to have an understanding of how you build this longer-form narrative. So for us, that was a really interesting new thing we did," he added. "I think we probably spend more time watching television these days than we do movies and that's definitely influenced the way we think about building our story."

Destiny is Bungie's first game under a new publishing deal with Activision lasting 10 years. The game is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, with more platforms expected to be announced soon.

You can preorder Destiny today at ShopTo.

Game I'm really looking forward to. Sounds good about the whole evolving over time so hopefully the evolutions don't take months and months to ever change.

"Previously, on DESTINY", lol. Also looking forward to this :) The announcement event certainly piqued my interest anyway as it looks great in concept. As long as it's not a case of "here's the first 10 episodes on your disc, the remaining 5 will be paid for DLC"...
