I haven't really been into Bungie ever since ODST or so, but hell this looks interesting.

That would make me a sad turkey.

I believe PC was slated for the year after release. I wonder if the platforms integrate online like I speculate?

God i love bungie.


Me too, my fears of them making MLP online are gone now, I'm getting sucked into another sci-fi universe. Man Bungie sci-fi is the best!

This all looks very interesting, but i cant help but notice that the ORB SHIP in the concept art looks so similar to the Diadacts ship in H4.

Can't help but wonder what really went on between Bungie and Microsoft when the Halo Franchise traded hands. Either way, whatever Bungie is working on still states its for the Xbox 360, and i cant imagine Microsoft passing up the opportunity to have Bungie Launch their next console with a killer new game the same way Halo launched the original Xbox. I've stated earlier in this post that Bungie no doubt have 'nextbox' dev kits, and they have had them for a while.

Sure, MS can have Halo. But in the end, we all have that gut feeling that Bungie's next game will be amazing, MS know this, MS want this. Bungie has them by the balls i bet.

God, I can't wait to see what Bungie have been working on though, they are a brilliant creative mind, and without imposed time constraints, its really exciting to imagine what this Destiny could be.

i think the movie Sphere said it best:

TED I bet if you put a laser micrometer on
this you'd find it's a perfect sphere. I
mean a perfect sphere -- down to a
thousandth of an inch. That's a message
in itself.

HARRY
Really.

BARNES
What do you mean?

TED
I mean when Pope Benedict asked Giotto
for a drawing to prove his worth as an
artist, what he did was draw a perfect
circle freehand. Perfection is a powerful
message.


i also think a sphere is the go-to futuristic design for a completely alien race that's so advanced that being able to create a 'perfect' shape is the message the creator/author is trying to get across.

Am i the only one who noticed how similar the story is to the written lyrics of Piet Sielck's metal space opera?

The band Iron Savior had a nice little overarching storyline going on with all of their albums, mostly focusing on a round "Protector" ship in earth's orbit. There's also the concept of the "Caldari Knights", which were the "Father" of the technology that led to the building of the Iron Savior and its only directive during its programming was:

"Protect Atlantis and Conquer the Alliance"

The Atlanteans eventually became to settle on a planet they named "Caldaris" (as Earth faced nuclear extinction 350 000 years in the past due to the actions of the Alliance) and their relics of technology and marvels were also spread across the known universe. Before that though, the Alliance had also managed to turn Iron Savior against the Atlanteans, but a re-engineering effort by the knighthood sent the Iron Savior on a 350 000 year trip across the galaxy, eventually returning to Earth to bide its time to "Protect Atlantis and Conquer The Alliance".

As all of the Atlanteans migrated from Earth,the Iron Savior begins the extermination of the "Alliance" in a grave directive misunderstanding that leads humans to seek shelter under the remaining ices of Greenland (and conviniently our first concept art from Bungie shows soldiers hiking forward in snowy/arctic landscape) in a city-fortress called the "Last City On Earth".


Gotta be a LOT of Iron Savior fans at Bungie!

Of Course I will help you beta test your sweet software :3.

Waiting on the Big Drop for this game... Very Very Excited.

Warning: You may find that my, or someone else's opinion does not comply with yours. Side effects of disagreement may include (but are not limited to): flaming, irrational behavior, broken keyboards, and/or nervous sweats. If you experience any of these symptoms refrain from communicating with others until the symptoms have subsided.

Honestly, I don't see Bungie doing anything I wouldn't like: They make games they want to play, I want to play the games they want to play, and my friends want to play the games they want to play. It seems to me that everyone wants to play the same games, Bungie are just the guys who make said games.

That makes sense, right?

3rd edition. Now with more grunt.

TFS 4 lyfe

Love the concept art. Feels so weird to finally understand all the clues, especially the posters in ODST!

  • 11.29.2012 12:42 PM PDT

Bungie is at it again. Remember those good old days before all the hating, console wars, and ignorance? When gaming was based on creativity and not just rehashing an old formula. We had dreams then, such as "How cool would it be if Playstation could play online with X-Box."

Bungie, for making this dream that much closer to reality, I thank you. For pushing the boundaries of the gaming world, I thank you. For making universes as wonderful as you have, I thank you.
Bungie, you guys are awesome.

A combination RPG/FPS would work great for this idea that I've had for a while. It would be good for any FPS or any RTS. Basically one or more guy is plays an FPS fighting in a PvE scenario, and another one or more people are playing an RTS focusing on destroying one or more juggernaut-ish enemies. In case you haven't figured it out, the AI in the FPS guys game are being commanded by the guys in the RTS, and the juggernauts in the RTS are the players in the FPS. The AI may be difficult, as you'd have to balance autonomy with with blind direction-following for the RTS players. If they move around too much, it might mess with the commands given by the players. Maybe there could be a command you could give them to act on there own once they get to the site. Whatever. I think it would make for a really cool game.

Lets break down the image.


Far Left Knight- Carrying what looks to be a weapon for Close quartered combat.

Knight second on the left- Carrying a sword of some sort.

Floating Orb- Seems to be a probe/sensor of some kind.


Massive mech like thing- Large Cannon Looks to Have AA rockets mounted as well as a rear gun. Knight on top of MEch looks to have a long range weapon.

Knight that is center parallel to mech- Looks to have an assault weapon of some kind.

All of the knights in the image seem to have some sort of protective suit, that provides oxygen, and maybe Speculation here, Protection from radiation.


Also, Looking at this image, something of this scale could now ay be on the Xbox 360, the hardware would not be able to support this.

I expect a Microsoft announcement of the release of The next Gen Xbox early 2013.

These are my opinions.


What image? I have to find it, it sounds like it has lots of details in it.

#edit: Ohhh, in the new post.... woot!
About the knights, perhaps they aren't knights? Their helmets apear to suggest multiple eyes, which may just be rule of cool, but if not, four eyes sure aren't human. If so, then this might be images of our new antagonist.

On the weapons, I couldn't really make any guesses about them, they all just look like generic guns to me. Even the "sword". I can see how you would think it was a blade, but it's definitely just a gun, though its weilder is holding it upright as he appears to be sprinting. Or maybe just posing. Probably peering ahead.

Oooooh! I finally have another game to obsesively track the developement of! I haven't even had a dry spell for this sort of thing, like I did after the release of Poke'mon B/W.

Im not sure how they're going to combine so many different types of gameplay, maybe they'll make it like Driver: San Francisco where the player jumps from above view (kinda) then back to the normal view. However the game turns out though, I can almost guarantee that it will borrow quite a bit from the Halo series. Which could be a positive or a negative thing.

i asume we will here something at e3 2013. And isn't it confirmed that it will be released fall 2013? if so then Im positve that we will see something at e3. also seeing as it has been in development since halo 3 odst i think that it will be an amazing game. and if what they said is true about it being a mmo/rpg/fps mix. it will be a very unique game cant wait

You would think with releasing some official artwork to stem the leaks that Bungie is getting very close to a full teaser or reveal of the new title or universe.
