Destiny – Bungie Video Presentation On Character Design

Halo creators Bungie want to create “brave new worlds” with their upcoming, shared action FPS Destiny.

During a recent panel presentation at GDC 2013, Bungie showed fans that one way to achieve this is through character development.

Throughout the presentation, writer and design director Joseph S. and art director Christopher B. revealed the various sci-fi and fantasy elements that the team used for inspiration for enemies like the Vex, Fallen, Cabal, Hive and Titan, as well as for the hero classes like the Titan, Hunter and Warlock.

Countless ideas and pieces of concept art were cycled through to land on the models seen in the presentation, and Bungie wants to share that process with you in this quick behind-the-scenes video.

Not mentioned in the video were some of the key characteristics of each of the three playable classes in Destiny. For example, the heavily armored Titan can be distinguished on the battlefield by its distinct V-shape, utilizing 80% armor and 20% cloth. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Warlock’s long robes create an upside-down V-shape and is made up of 20% armor and 80% cloth. Sitting in the middle, the Hunter wears 50% of both armor and cloth and is distinguished by its unique hood and use of improvised technology.

More was also shown, including some of the playable races like the Humans, the mysterious and alien Awoken, and the mechanical and sinister Exo. Sadly, the “Tiger Man” didn’t make it into production.

    • mrneoshredder

      Just because it doesn’t have your fancy little Frostbite 2 or overexagerated bloom doesn’t mean it isn’t cool.

  • JK Monroe

    Bungie lost a lot of street cred for selling out to Micro$oft.

    • WuT???
      You know how they made Halo right? An Xbox exclusive game? Umm..

      • JK Monroe

        I know about Halo but don’t care much for it since they never bothered to release it on PS3. Now they saw the error of their decision and decided to release their next game on both platforms. A little too late to the game.

          Halo is owned by Microsoft and so was Bungie until they became independent. But Halo is still owned by Microsoft.

      • halo 1 and 2 was PC games and they were the best halo (cept 2 because vista)

  • Some of those look awesome!
    Others look too WoW-ey or too space marine-ey :/
    I am deffo looking forward to this game.

  • Katana67

    Looks great, really looking forward to seeing what’s in store with this game. They’ve said it would be MMO-y and have an expansive solar system. So… looking forward to that more than anything else. We know Bungie is great at making visuals and story, just not open environments. Interested in seeing what goes on there.
