Bungie explains the difference between Destiny and Borderlands
One question that has been cropping up in forums rather often since Bungie announced Destiny is how the game is any different from Gearbox’s project, Borderlands.
During an interview, Destiny’s creative lead, Joe Staten, answered the question. Said Mr. Staten, “One big, important difference is that public experience. We don’t do that just once or twice in the game, we do that everywhere and it’s not just a small amount of people that you run into, it is potentially a lot of different kinds of people.”
He goes on to point out that, “In Borderlands you can run around with enemies and run into a few enemies to kill, in Destiny you will run around with your friends, run into other small groups of friends who are also there killing monsters, you see other people off on the horizon, hear gunfire over a hill and you see space magic flying behind some trees. There are other people out there.”
Will this be enough to set Bungie’s project apart?
