It appears that Activision and Bungie are beginning their media blitz leading into E3 with their newest Dev Diary on the Playstation Blog titled, Armor, Weapons, Loot. As the title suggests, this new dev diary is all about the weapons and armor you will be obtaining through defeating enemies in Destiny. Loot will be plentiful, and the physical attributes and appearance of your loot will be based on the difficulty level of the enemies you defeat. For instance, blasting through end-game content such as raids and high-level strikes will grant you better and more exotic weaponry and armor than earlier on in the game against easier enemies. As the video explains, you will be able to tell a level five from a level 25 by their armor and weapons.
The video doesnâ€™t go too in-depth as to the different types of weapons and armor, but one huge piece of information is that the gameâ€™s loot will be private to you. From ammo to armor and weaponry, you will see loot specific to you, whereas your squadmates will see their own as well. Keeping the focus on the actual gameplay vs the chaos of grabbing loot before anyone else can grab it is a fantastic idea to keep the focus on the action in Destiny.
Keep your eyes here for more info from Bungieâ€™s Destiny as it is revealed.
Destiny is being developed by Bungie, published by Activision and is set to be released September 9, 2014 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
