In Bungie's latest podcast there has been a mention of competitive multiplayer map's "These maps are specifically designed 100 percent from the ground up to be awesome for competitive multiplayer," Competitive multiplayer design lead Lars Bakken said.
Despite Bungie showing major elements of sociable gameplay and features it appears Bungie is definitely bringing competitiveness among players to Destiny. We will possibly see a range of competitive game types and maps.
"We are going into an interesting space, where we are a shooter, we are an action game, we are a game that a lot of people out are really familiar with and they love and they spend a lot of time playing and we are trying to bring some additional elements to that."
He also says, "The goal is so that you have this game that you come back to and that your friends come back to, and when you're all coming back to the game, and you all feel like you want to keep playing this game. Then you have a social game at that point. You actually have a cooperative experience, a community experience."
According to Lars Bakken the skill you use within Destiny will "go beyond thumb stick abilities and quick fingers" you must understand on how you equip yourself and look at the choices you make.
