Destiny PvP unlocked through progression
Multiplayer battles won't be available at the start of the game.
You're going to have to earn your way into PvP when Destiny releases later this year, developer Bungie has revealed.
Talking with Eurogamer, Bungie's Tyson Green discussed how players will need to progress through the game's campaign to unlock player vs player gamemodes.
Green explained that this decision was made to avoid a bad experience for the player when first jumping into Destiny. "We found early on that people here in the studio, when they jumped on the game - these were people who were already really familiar with the game mechanics - they would roll a new character, play through the first mission then go right into PvP, and they would just get really beaten up by the other players because they didn't have a super ability yet and they'd only got an auto rifle from the first mission,"
"And they said, 'this is really awful, this is a terrible experience!' And we said, 'you're right, we have to make sure that doesn't really happen."
"So when your first character unlocks PvP, you're a little bit further into the game. You've probably done one or two of the campaign missions, probably unlocked a special weapon and your super ability. And then once that's happened we unlock it for all the characters on your account. Once you know how the game works, if you want to take a Hunter into PvP at level three, yeah, we're okay with that. You know what the game is at that point, so that's your decision to make."
Destiny is coming to Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 9th.
Pre-order Destiny to be part of the game's beta experience.
