Unpacking The Demo

Our video interview with Bungie president Harold Ryan offers additional insight into classes, weapons, upgrades, and Cortana's replacement.

One of the most exciting demos of E3's press conferences was the first public unveiling of gameplay for Bungie's Destiny. On the following morning at the E3 show floor, we sat down with Harold Ryan to go into additional detail on all the new content that was seen in the extended live gameplay sequence. He spoke to us about several of the features that we saw for the first time in this new demo. We got more details on the game's upgrade system and weapons, and he explained the three classes on display in the game, implying that more were on the way in future announcements. He also offered some detail on the "ghosts," new companion characters that fulfill a similar role to Cortana in Bungie's previous Halo games.

Check out our full video interview directly below, and scroll further down for a bevy of new screenshots for Destiny. 

This preview was originally published on June 11, 2013.

  • I can't wait till my brother gets it so we can play together!
  • This is sounding pretty interesting. I was skeptical it would be a strict shooter like Halo, but I'm glad to hear they have character classes and skills to make it more complex. How deep that customization goes will determine how much it will stand apart from other fps games.

  • This is sounding pretty flipping cool. May have to add this to my stable of PS4 games.

  • So does this mean one can't play the game by alone? Not at all? That's disappointing.
  • I'm looking forward to seeing more on the co-op. Overall, this was a nice peek at the game play.

  • This game looks amazing, day one buy for sure.  Good to see Bungie is staying ambitious and trying to really raise the bar with this game.

  • Amazing gameplay reveal. They have already reserved my money for a day one buy

  • Looks great, what I really want to know when the show these multiconsole games though is which one would be better. I'm sure that Destiny would be better on the PS4 with the new online network.

  • This game looks gorgeous and I'm pretty much sold on getting it.

  • so sweet. i hope they take their time and perfect it, this is going to be well worth the wait.

  • This is one of my most anticipated games right now. I can't wait to get my hands on the game.

  • This is one of the first games I plan on picking up on PS4. Was going to get it on Xbone but MS lost me as a customer when it comes to that system. Change your ways MS, change your ways.

  • hunter class is going to be perfect for me
  • This looked amazing already, but this little demo expo just made me so much more excited for the finished product.

  • Top of my list for E3. Really excited to see the more previews.

  • I haven't been this excited for a game in a long time.

  • Gameplay was phenominal.. Titanfall and Destiny look to be of the same scope, I wonder which will be better.. Too bad I won't get a shot at Titanfall since it's XB exclusive.
  • So pumped... This looks like the best shooter yet

  • Video?  No time.  Game looks good though.  Hopefully more of the written word will be devoted to it.

  • I've been hoping someone would make a Sandbox Open World RPG Shooter game for a long ass time and whats even better is that its made by Bungie. I cannot wait for this game i'm really excited.
