The lights are on
Bungie has always strived to have a close relationship with its fans. In the company's latest mailbag, where the team answers questions from its audience, Bungie talks about how Destiny is trying to accommodate them.
Although Bungie letter curator DeeJ doesn't dive into specifics, it sounds like the game will be playable in convenient chunks, and he intimates gamers will be able to interface with Destiny via the Bungie mobile app.
Here are the original questions and answers:
Q: I am a hardcore gamer, but work and two kids has
made my gaming time slim. I'm worried that, with a shared world shooter, I will
be missing lots of good things because I don't have the time anymore. Is there
any hope for my demographic?
A: There is hope, old man. One of Destiny's
design pillars is that it's "Compatible with Real Life." That's important to us
at Bungie. We want to make a game that you can enjoy for as long as you're able
to play – even if it's bite-sized gaming sessions, every now and then.
Q: Will bungie.net and Destiny be
brought even closer together compared to your Halo era?
Bungie.net was designed to provide the players of Halo with a bunch of ways to
extend and share their experiences. Those priorities won't change with
Destiny. It'll be a great place to maintain a relationship with the
people who are making this game, with the other people who are playing this
game, and even with yourself as a character in this game. We even have
some interesting plans for how you can take that experience with you, wherever
you go. If armed with the right gadgets, no matter where life finds you, the
world of Destiny will be very close – at your fingertips, even.
