MCV’s 12 Games of Christmas: Destiny

When Bungie decided to give up on its world conquering Halo franchise and build something completely new, we all thought it was mad.

But they were wrong. Teaming up with publishing behemoth Activision, Bungie has just created yet another video game giant in Destiny.

Just a few days after launch, over $500m worth of Destiny stock was sold into stores and by November, the game had 9.5m registered players.

It will come as no surprise to learn that – like Halo – Destiny is a shooter series, and it certainly has a lot in common with Bungie’s original epic.

But what separates Destiny is its online component, where fans from all around the globe play together in a persistent, online world. It is quite possibly the closest we’ll ever get to a successful MMO on a console.

Sony even partnered with Destiny for exclusive PS4 content, and bundled it with a special white version of the PS4.
