Destiny's style has been described as a first-person shooter that incorporates role-playing and massively multiplayer online game (MMO) elements. The game has been referred to as a "shared-world shooter, as it lacks many of the characteristics of a traditional MMO game. For instance, rather than players being able to see and interact with all other players in the game or on a particular server, as is the case in many conventional MMO games; Destiny includes matchmaking that allows players to see and interact only with other players with whom they are "matched" by the game. Events may happen in-game that are not necessarily controlled or planned by it's creator, which will help to create a dynamic playing experience for gamers.
Destiny features three major character classes, each with their own specific upgrades, perks, and special abilities that allow the player to finely tune their individual characters to provide a different play style.The Titan class is designed to be a "tank", with a focus on withstanding large amounts of damage to allow close quarters combat. The Titan's super, "Fist of Havoc", is a ground slamming attack that destroys all enemies in its radius. Its sub-class "Defender" offers the ability to generate a shield with its "Ward of Dawn" ability. The shield can also provide temporary stat bonuses to other players that step within it. The Warlock class is designed as a spell-caster, with a larger focus on offensive abilities, recovery, and melee attacks.
