Destiny, the upcoming MMO-style sci-fi shooter from Bungie, requires an internet connection to work. There is no offline mode. That's on all platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. And next gen consoles Destiny, which publisher Activision calls the world's first shared-world shooter, is built around co-operative play and includes elements familiar to the massively multiplayer online genre, such as a persistent world, areas packed with players and quests designed to challenge sizeable groups. At the game's reveal in Bungie's Bellevue, Washington office this week, attended by Eurogamer, Bungie COO Pete Parsons said: "It's a persistent, shared and connected world, so you will need to be connected [to the internet] to play Destiny." The news comes hot on the heels of a report by Edge magazine that claimed the next Xbox, codenamed Durango and reportedly out later this year, will require an internet connection to function. As expected, talk of Bungie's release on next-generation consoles was limited, despite Sony's next PlayStation announcement due in just a few days. "We're absolutely going to be on this generation of consoles," Parsons said. "When we came to the big collaboration with Activision we said we're going to tell these adventures over a 10-year period, so we need to make sure we're prepared for the future, both in upcoming generations and multiple platforms and devices themselves." Parsons said some kind of Destiny experience will be available on mobile devices, on which you'll do "meaningful things... maybe things you can only do on a device but are then paid off inside the Destiny universe."
