Bungie’s Ryan Ellis provided some new information regarding the development of “Destiny.” According to a report from Gaming Bolt on Dec. 24, the technical art director revealed that the upcoming multiplatform video game originally started out as a third-person title. However, the development team ultimately decided to use the first-person camera view.

Destiny” still has some third-person elements. Ryan Ellis explained that the staff members at Bungie want players to see the “cool” armor and moves using the new camera view. You can check out a set of screens from the new intellectual property in the slideshow to the left of this article and the comments below (courtesy of Gaming Bolt and Game Informer):

We actually were at one point third-person only. We wanted to make a kick-ass action game, and we decided first-person was the right place to do that. There are some third-person elements in the game still. That’s important for gameplay, and to show off your cool moves and the cool armour you get.

Previous videos show that the camera will switch from a first-person perspective into a third-person camera angle during the use of super abilities and when riding on a vehicle. Players may also be able to explore the central city while being able to see the full bodies of their characters.

“Destiny” will be arriving on Sept. 9, 2014, after being delayed from the initial spring release time frame. The video game will be available for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One although the Playstation platforms should be getting exclusive contents. One of which is having first access to the online multiplayer beta that is taking place in the summer of next year.
