Bungie’s Destiny Gets New Screenshots Showing Bikes and Advanced Ambient Occlusion

on April 11, 2014 4:13 PM

Can’t ever get enough screenshots of Bungie’s upcoming massive shooter Destiny, and today we finally get three new glimpses on the game.

The first, that you can see above, is an actual screenshot of the game, showcasing the Shrike bikes we’ll get to ride. The other two, that you can enjoy below, were showcased during a presentation at GDC by Nvidia, and show the ambient occlusion used for the game thanks to the offlline OptiX tech, that allows Bungie to pre-bake the effect into the game for better performance.

The last screenshot at the bottom is an old one portraying the same location, to give you an idea of the transition from untextured, ambient occlusion-enhanced polygons to gameplay.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
