    Thank you GAF for doing all the work :razz:

    LA Times Article:

    Full contract found here.

    Damn shame that their plans had to be revealed through the legal battle between Activision and Jason West & Vince Zampella IMO. Still sounds like an ambitious project and I for one can't wait to see what this turns out to be.

    I don't understand... who are bungie battling in the courts? Activision?

    Also, does this imply that they are not making an MMO?

    I guess they don't battle anyone, but Activision is and therefore, for some reason that is most likely only apparent to legal people, it seems that they had to show the contract in court...

    Yeah I didn't realize I worded that poorly, sorry.:oops: I changed it so that it better reflected what I meant.

    mmm... didn't like the video too much. :sad: They talked a lot about what they wanted Destiny to be, but very little about the game itself a not a single bit about gameplay mechanics. An IGN reported said that we shouldn't expect it to be released this year, so it looks that Bungie has still a lot of work to do. Hope they'll show something soon.

    By the way, the OP should be updated.

    It is a tease.

    Concept art is gorgeous; ingame implementation not as much though.

    I'm getting a Borderlands with a persistent game world vibe.

    I'm confused. Halo didn't have 4 player split screen when we tried it last week. In fact hardly any games support 4 player split screen this gen, which is a tragic shame.

    Halo 3 & Reach support 4 player split screen multiplayer, on Reach there is even a glitch that allows you to play 4 player coop on the campaign. But yes, 4 player split screen was more for kart racing games this generation.

    It's the coop I'm talking about. I'll go google that Halo 4 glitch!

    Destiny sounds like Borderlands with more MMO elements, good stuff, but I don't like it when they announce games so early, they should have shown more gameplay.

    And since Activision usually brings everything to PC, there's hope I'll finally be able to play a Bungie game on PC again, happy days!

    I'm hugely excited for this. Have really liked Bungie ever since I got in on the BETA for Myth: The Fallen Lords. It'd be incredibly if they ever made another Myth game, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    Regards,
    SB

    The brief gameplay segments appear to be from the xbox 360 version and graphically it looked nice.Hope to see alot of more of it at E3... :twisted::twisted:

    After looking at the artwork I could imagine the same kind of designs being used in a Halo environment. Looks more like HaloNG to me with the motivation to own their IP again after loosing it to Microsoft due to the split. I don't really believe that Bungie couldn't sell MS the idea of some MMO FPS in a beyond Halo setting.

    Saw one of the Destiny posters at Game Stop today. They were double-sided & looked nice. Evidently they were giving them away to people who placed a $5 pre-order on the game, but only the 1st 25 people. Ship date was listed as 1-1-2014 since they're not sure when it ships.
