Destiny - The Devil’s Lair Gameplay, New Screens

Destiny - New Screens, Each Location in Destiny About “the Size of Halo: Reach,” Over 500 People Working on the Title

Big, meet bigger. Bungie software engineer Christian Diefenbach has revealed that each major location in the forthcoming Destiny is “more or less the same size” as an entire game - Halo Reach, to be specific.

Speaking to Brazilian website Jogos, Diefenbach also revealed that there are over 500 people working on Destiny, where 130 people worked on the original Halo.

As you hopefully know by now, the game casts players as Guardians, and sees you exploring the wreckage of a human solar empire for secrets, ancient weapons and things to blow up or run away from. According to Diefenbach, Destiny employs two perspectives: you’ll fight in first person while out and about, but exploration of social areas (where you’ll meet other players and choose missions) takes place in third person, the better to appreciate your costume and loadout.

Destiny to Use Faceware Tech For Increased Character Detail
Bungie will be making use of Faceware’s markerless motion capture technology to provide lifelike character detail and movement in their upcoming shared-world shooter, Destiny.
The technology, previously used on Bungie’s Halo: Reach, “uses video to capture every detail of an actor’s face, and computer vision software to transfer that performance quickly to digital characters, giving Bungie’s artists a detailed first pass to which they can then add greater detail to their characters,” reads a recent press release.

“The ease in which Faceware translates real performances into digital performances is on of the main reasons Bungie decided to use the technology on Destiny.”

Destiny was almost a 3rd person shooter
"We actually were at one point third-person only," he told Game Informer. However, “we wanted to make a kick-ass action game, and we decided first-person was the right place to do that.”
"There is some third-person elements in the game still. That’s important for gameplay, and to show off your cool moves and the cool armor you get."
