While obviously the wonderful Bungie files of the day is going to be their point to at 12 PM ET showcasing the manner forward for Destiny 2, I’ve been seeing a determined job itemizing handed around (as first spotted by TheGamePost) that’s starting to procure me angry for their next non-Destiny mission, codename Topic.
Beforehand, we have seen job listings about Bungie’s next sport that form it sound devour it has a graceful lighthearted tone and graceful:
“Are you on a mission to create games that bond avid gamers together into deeply invested communities? Would you is probably going to be making an strive to work on something comedic with lighthearted and eccentric characters? Get you watched quite a bit about how art work impacts gameplay, how personality originate can enable fan cosplays, or how personality poses and environments consult with varied cultures all across the realm?…Are you inspired to create a hopeful new sport world that brings avid gamers together from all the contrivance throughout the planet?”
But now a brand new itemizing goes deeper into what kind of sport this could well be, and from the sound of it, it has RPG sides and can in truth be a Diablo-ish dungeon crawler:
“You is probably going to be the glue between the sword and the reward. You are going to work in tandem with our sandbox and financial system teams to assemble and distribute items to our avid gamers. Living internal an essential database of hundreds of baubles, weapons, and armor is nothing new to you. And neither is building a tool to cleverly distribute these items in a necromancer’s dungeon.”
So, everything I’m finding out in these listings runs opposite to previous rumors about this being a cell sport (I in truth have by no manner seen something about cell sport originate journey in any of these job listings) and additionally a sport that was fully PvP centered, which this new itemizing doesn’t sound devour in any appreciate. I yell it’s imaginable Bungie could well be rising more than one sport, or that Topic also can have both a PvP or PvE ingredient devour Destiny, but who knows.
What I enact know is that if Bungie, the studio that has gotten me hooked on the loot grind of Destiny for a couple of thousand hours, makes a sport within the style of Diablo, a series that beforehand bought me hooked on its loot grind for a couple of thousand hours, that equals me almost definitely loss of life from exhaustion as I play too many Bungie games too great.
While there would possibly maybe be talk of swords and necromancers, that can also right be stand-in terms for the itemizing and it doesn’t necessarily mean that Bungie is rising a sage property. Finally, they’re in truth heavily invested in sci-fi at this point, and a sci-fi dungeon crawler sounds devour it could maybe be a quantity of fun, as that doesn’t for the time being exist in a serious manner, though I’ve seen a handful of attempts.
We put no longer have any idea when we’re lastly going to hear about Topic or no matter Bungie is engaged on. They give the influence of being to aloof be gathering skill and within the early days of this mission, but this most fresh itemizing undoubtedly piqued my ardour, given what a Diablo fiend I am. I don’t know for obvious if that’s the style of sport they’re building, but I’m additionally no longer obvious how else to study that job description, because it obvious sounds devour a dungeon crawler to me.
Extra soon. And by soon I mean almost definitely a yr or two.
