Games Like DestinyOur selection of games like Destiny offers other action packed shooters with futuristic themes, item hunts and massive worlds to explore.

Destiny blurs the lines between post-apocalyptic, futuristic and science fiction with its unique setting that sends players to a future human struggle. Taking place far into the future after a period of advancement for the human race you’ll join a world that has only a single human city left in the galaxy and is under constant threat from other alien species. Players will join the ranks of the Guardians capable of wielding the unknown power of “the Light” in an effort to push back the invading alien forces and hopefully start a new Golden Age for mankind.

Gameplay in Destiny combines the genres of FPS, RPG and MMO together into one to create an addicting PvE and PvP adventure. Character customisation and dynamic gameplay are the focus of Destiny with choice of race and a huge array of options within your class and sub-classes that define how you play in both PvE and PvP content. On top of this foundation is the randomised loot alongside fixed exotic weapons that are central to meta builds that players can obtain from various achievements or story based content that is continuously expanded.
