‘Destiny,’ coming in September from Bungie, is a ‘smarter shooter than most’

The world of “Destiny” is a gorgeous and breathtaking landscape of both desolation and life, from Bungie, the team that also created “Halo.” In “Destiny,” players are tough, plated in armor, with recharging shields and “ridiculously high jumping abilities,” writes Xbox Wire.

One of the differences between “Destiny” and other shooters is the health bar display above every character. “You can see how much health and shield your opponent has left, which better allows you to adapt your strategy on the fly. Knowing that an opponent’s shield is low gives you the knowledge and opportunity to quickly make a move, like switching from an assault rifle to a hand cannon to go for a good, clean headshot. Things like this make ‘Destiny’ a smarter shooter than most.”

“Destiny” is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on Sept. 9. To learn more, head over to Xbox Wire.
