Destiny PS4 HD gameplay – 12 minutes of the open world MMO shooter in action

Here’s Destiny in full 1080p HD swing as it shows you one of its missions. In fact, the same mission you’ll have seen if you watched Bungie’s E3 2013 presentation, but played through again a little differently. How about all those graphics, huh?

Okay, the mission’s contrived to show off as much of its impressive lighting engine and soft shadows as possible, so you’re not witnessing the re-invention of the corridor gunfight in this generous 12-minute serving, but you are able to check out PS4′s sprawling draw distances early on, and the mechanics that make Destiny tick – shooting and looting.

Check out how far Destiny’s come from Bungie’s first conceptual scribbles here in our Destiny concept art gallery. For more on the game’s production and the development team’s storied history, read our in-depth Destiny PS4 feature.
