Bungie: People Were ‘Too Quick’ to Compare Halo and Destiny

Enemy races are diverse in Destiny, Bungie says.

In the latest Bungie Mail Sack the developer has said people have been "too quick" to compare Destiny and Halo.

The studio addressed several questions from fans including one which asked how player-controlled Guardians would compare to hulking Cabals – one of the enemies in the game.  

"Depends on the Cabal," Bungie commented. "The Guardians won't be the only fighting force in Destiny teeming with unique warriors. Take the Fallen, for example. When people saw them at E3, they were all too quick to compare them to the Elites you fought in Halo. In truth, the Fallen are as varied and diverse as the Covenant as a whole."

Players are asked to watch the E3 gameplay trailer again "and see how many varieties you can spot. Some of the smaller targets, like the Shanks and Dregs, will draw your fire. The larger crews, the ones that include Vandals or Captains, will have you wishing you brought that Fireteam. And let's not forget about those moments when we'll drop something as big as a Devil Walker in your path.

"The Cabal, along with the Vex and the Hive, are equally rich in their varieties. There are a lot of bad guys in Destiny. We need heroes to push them back whence they came. Apply within."

Destiny is set to be released next year for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Versions of the game on PlayStation platforms will feature exclusive content.
