Destiny Character Upgrades Detailed


In Game Informer’s final “month of Destiny” installment, the magazine has detailed the upgrade options and character customization options for players in Bungie’s upcoming shooter.

Investment lead Tyson Green sat down with the magazine to fully explain upgrade features to the game. Players will be able to upgrade armor, guns and focus for the characters. All upgrades happen by way of using the equipment you want to improve.

“So when you’re wearing your armor and earning experience your armor’s leveling up,” Green said. “When you’re using weapons to get kills, those specific weapons are leveling up. And your focus also levels up when you’re getting kills or completing activities.”

Destiny hits store shelves on September 9, 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
