Developer Bungie has released several new screenshots as well as details about Destiny.
New details reveal through the Community Mailsack that there won’t be any NPC companions in Destiny.
“Why would you want to recruit a Non-Player Character, when the world of Destiny is populated with Guardians? Every hero from the last safe city on Earth will be driven by a living, thinking player with a racing pulse and an itchy trigger finger.
“You’ll come across characters bound to the software, of course, but your allies will be the other players who join you on your adventures.”
As far as item customization, some of the things you find on or within various desiccated planets/spaceships “will be raw materials that you need to upgrade your inventory” – this entails a visit to the Tower on Earth. “The best thing is that your rewards will be pre-destined,” notes the Mailsack of the upgrade process. “The fates know what you need, and your fortunes will favour the brave.”
In addition, Bungie confirmed that Guardians will be able to change their loadouts during competitive multiplayer, rather than having to make do with a starting loadout.
“The plan of record is to enable you to carry an inventory with you, and allow you to make changes on the fly. The mysterious science that fills your pack with such wonderful toys is our secret for now. It’s technology, indecipherable from magic.”
The Mailsack also added that changing your gear is not advisable under fire. “If you want to get shot in the face, knock yourself out.”
