Destiny’s PvP Mode Needs To Be Unlocked | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Destiny’s PvP Mode won’t be

available straight away


Bungie have revealed that Destiny’s competitive multiplayer mode will not be available until a few hours into the game. Speaking to Eurogamer Bungie said that after a player has unlocked the PvP mode with one character it will be unlocked for all characters on the players account.

Explaining why the developers made this decision was Bungie’s own Tyson Green, “We found early on that people here in the studio, when they jumped on the game – these were people who were already really familiar with the game mechanics – they would roll a new character, play through the first mission then go right into PvP, and they would just get really beaten up by the other players because they didn’t have a super ability yet and they’d only got an auto rifle from the first mission”.

“And they said, ‘this is really awful, this is a terrible experience!’ And we said, ‘you’re right, we have to make sure that doesn’t really happen.’

“So when your first character unlocks PvP, you’re a little bit further into the game. You’ve probably done one or two of the campaign missions, probably unlocked a special weapon and your super ability. And then once that’s happened we unlock it for all the characters on your account. Once you know how the game works, if you want to take a Hunter into PvP at level three, yeah, we’re okay with that. You know what the game is at that point, so that’s your decision to make.”

He also explained that a forge style user account would be available at launch as well as item trading and cross platform saves would be able to carry over on linked platforms (PS3 to PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One).

So how do you feel about having to wait for PvP matches till your geared and levelled up?
