GDC '15 - Multithreading the Entire Destiny Engine


It's been a while since we've seen a Bungie presentation from the GDC (David Candland's UI talk back in April of last year was our most recent one), but a new one has been uploaded to the GDC's Youtube page. In their own words:

"Bungie's Barry Genova explains how Bungie turned almost every part of Destiny's engine into a job graph, with only limited use of thread-based pre-emption."

Sounds like valuable insight into Destiny's engine and the testing that goes into it, especially for those who think that making a change to the game is as simple as "changing a few values", or "adding if/then scripts".
Thanks, INSANEdrive, for the heads up!

Edit: Pyromancy highlighted a previous GDC talk that is referenced in the above presentation, where former Bungie employee Natalya Tatarchuk discusses Destiny's Multithreaded Rendering Architecture, which has been reported on before in a different capacity. Lots of neat stuff to read and watch!

"Tenacious Design and The Interface of Destiny" Now Online!

UI Design

It took a while, but David Candland's GDC presentation on UI design (mentioned here back in March) is now online over at the GDC Vault! An incredibly in-depth look behind the scenes of what it took to bring Destiny's Director and UI to life, straight from Evil Otto himself. A highly recommended watch.

The Beginning of the End... er, the End of the Beginning?

eclipse.pngIGN continues their vigilant coverage of Destiny in an interview with Bungie's Luke Smith on what happens once you start to finish the basic game and the "endgame" opens up. One of these elements is the mysterious Raid, and there's a lot of words dedicated to it. Sounds exciting and challenging! Much thanks to our local news-cryptarch, Xenos.

ign.pngJDQuakers let us know that IGN has a Q & A with Bungie's Urk right here. Some interesting talk on the reasoning behind certain decisions like player names as well as which aspects of the game are still in some deliberation, like voice communication, thanks to Beta feedback.

Personally, I'd be fine with not talking to strangers, though I could see some more Fable-esque emotes, like acting like a chicken or farting for example, could be instrumental in challenging missions.

IGN Tours the Tower with Urk

ign.pngIGN has a new video up of a walking tour of the Tower given by urk. It covers lots of details which may already be old hat to those who've been enjoying the beta thus far; but also teases some "freaky" stuff that might interest even those well acquainted with the Guardians' refuge above the city.  Go take a look!   (Thanks goes to bluerunner in our forum.)
