With major, long-term plans for their brand new IP, Destiny, developer Bungie is letting those who plan to come along for the ride know that they’ll be able to take their Guardian along with them every step of the way.
Bungie Community Manager David “DeeJ” Dague confirmed the news in a recent interview with IGN.
“It’s been no secret that we have a ten-year plan for the expansion and evolution of this franchise, and it’s something that we’re always dreaming about,” he said.
“I’ve seen new concept art, I’ve seen new exotic weapons up on people’s screens…it’s a lot of fun to walk around the studio, because there’s always somebody thinking about the next place you’ll go, the next enemy you’ll fight, the next thing that you’ll earn for doing those things.”
Luckily, if you’ve grown attached to your probably now very powerful Titan, Warlock, or Hunter, you’ll be able to experience all that with the same Guardian (or Guardians) the entire way.
“The idea is that the Guardian you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure. If you take a look at the way people have played other games for a long period of time, they’ve had a relationship with the same character for a very long time.”
Developer BioWare pulled off a similar plan very successfully with the Mass Effect series, allowing gamers to transfer their version of Commander Shepherd between all three games. Having spent so much time building up your Guardian in the first Destiny title, it’s nice to know not all of that work will go to waste in ‘Destiny 2’ or ‘Destiny 3’.
Elsewhere in the interview, Dague also talked about player demand for more vault space and an increase in the glimmer cap.
For now, Bungie is gearing up for the launch of Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, due out this Tuesday, December 9.
