Yesterday the PS4 public alpha of Destiny has finally reached its end, and we decided to use the additional day to do something special. Besides its stories and top-notch equipment design, Bungie is well known for the world-building skills of its designers, and that’s exactly what we set out to show here.
Below you can see nine panoramic screenshots of the game, with a field of view varying between 180 and close to 360 degrees. If you’re not familiar with Destiny, you might very well think those are illustrations, but that’s not the case.
All we did was picking nine nice spots in the game, spin around like headless chickens while taking screenshots, and then painstakingly stitch the resulting 278 screenshots together in the panoramic views. Besides the stitching operation, what you see is exactly what you got in the alpha version of the game (I’m not going to say at release, as Bungie mentioned that the game already looks better than that).
But enough with the explanations, enjoy the screenshots below, and maybe they’ll help you with the wait for the massively anticipated beta. Of course you can, and should, click on them to see the full resolution version. Please give them a few seconds to load. They’re pretty big files.
