The upcoming shared-world shooter from Bungie will be officially heading to E3 after Destiny was confirmed to be included within Sony’s conference next week. According to a report by VG247 on June 6, new information for the upcoming MMO-inspired shooter will be revealed for the first time during Sony’s E3 stage presentation. The announcement of Destiny’s attachment to the Sony conference came with the promise that new details for the game will be unveiled next week.

Despite the fact that Destiny will release on both Microsoft and Sony platforms alike, this isn’t the first time that it appeared that the upcoming persistent world title has shown more of a n affinity towards Playstation owners. In fact, the game’s beta will launch first on the PS3 and PS4 in July. While the Xbox family of consoles will also see a beta, it will happen at a later date that has yet to be specified.

Bungie’s new first-person shooter will allow fans to collect gear and level as one of three selectable class options. Destiny will feature both competitive and cooperative multiplayer gameplay and both options will be a viable source of progression and rewards. However, players will have to unlock the ability to fight against each other because the developer wants fans to understand how the game works before jumping into PvP combat. Those who prefer to work alongside their fellow gamers rather than against them, Destiny will also allow players to group up and take on any of the game’s content together.

Destiny will release for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 on Sept 9. No mention of a PC release has been confirmed at this point. Most of the time in the game, players will only see limited number of other players while in combat areas. However, the title will include a central city hub where all players will congregate on the same server.
