Destiny's Endgame Raids Won't Be For The Faint Of Heart
There will be all kinds of things to do in Destiny.
The recent beta gave millions a chance to sample some of the activities on tap for the epic shared-world shooter, including story missions, competitive multiplayer and a co-op Strike mission. But what's in store for advanced players after they complete the narrative?
They'll get endgame raids, which will be similar to MMO raids in structure and concept: You have to soldier forth with friends and you must work together if you hope to be successful. If you emerge victorious, the rewards will be great. Bungie's Luke Smith told IGN that they took the risk of forcing co-op multiplayer on the user:
"It's a bit of a risk because the activity requires you to have a group of five other friends to play with. [But] if the worst thing that happens is you get your group together and you all have a great time? Wow, that's going to be awesome. I bet you'll want to come back. Hopefully the gear makes you want to come back."
Bungie is keeping the details of these raids a secret, but Smith did say they "don't adhere to any of the standard rules for the rest of the game." For instance, raids won't have waypoints, so you won't know where to go and in fact, you might not even know what to do. Personally, I'd find that immensely obnoxious but hey, I don't play MMOs so Destiny isn't really for me, anyway.
