What Is Destiny’s Sword?

At the heart of the Galactic Hegemony’s power lies the rare mineral, Lucidium.  

Facilitating jumps between star systems, it enables the corporations to flourish and the government to control. But the core worlds’ reserves of Lucidium are dwindling, and one outer world, rich in this valuable resource, is catching the eye of the galaxy’s rulers.  

Cypris, once a remote paradise, is now caught in the crosshairs between the government and the corporations, an unwilling pawn in their struggle for ascendency.

Destiny’s Sword is a sci-fi strategy/combat MMORPG, but it comes with a unique twist that is unlike any other seen in the genre before. Instead of focusing on crunching numbers to achieve dominance, players in Destiny’s Sword will manage their characters’ physical and mental health throughout their combat careers.  Destiny’s Sword will be the first MMO to feature a realistic portrayal of mental health issues, highlighting the long-term consequences of conflict.

Think about it: In any MMO including Destiny’s Sword, you are tasked with adventuring out into the world to complete missions and earn rewards. But the life of a combatant takes its toll over time, and even the most hardened fighter needs time to recharge.  Back in the arms of your community, you will rest and zero in on the motivations and experiences you’ve just been through. It is this duality where Destiny’s Sword shines.

Destinys Sword Game An early look at a co-op battle…

We’re currently developing Destiny’s Sword as an online combat game in which thousands of players command squadrons of futuristic troops through competitive and cooperative missions – but with a unique twist.  Gameplay in Destiny’s Sword focuses on bringing you together with other players through meaningful social interaction – cultivating empathy and cooperation in stark contrast to the anti-social focus of conventional online games.

As you can see, Destiny’s Sword is about much more than typical combat progression. You will focus more on social progression through unique game mechanics designed to encourage camaraderie and fellowship with other players. Success is not based on how much you can individually win and hoard, but on how much you can contribute to the community to elevate those around you.

How is this accomplished? Using the proprietary Insight Engine technology, player characters will be able to express over 80 different feelings. Each of your characters will be affected by their combat experiences, interactions with other characters, random life events and by your decisions and actions throughout the game. Your characters can be wounded and killed, but can also suffer persistent mental health issues like PTSD, depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Destiny’s Sword is a thoughtful, emotional and strategic experience that is a stark contrast to adrenaline-based, often gratuitous, violence.  Consequences of combat will introduce major social and empathic gameplay elements, but through innovative game mechanics, we ensure that you and all players are valued and can contribute in a meaningful way, regardless of achievement level or intensity of play.

Destinys Sword Game Your soldiers need your support in many ways…

Destiny’s Sword has partnered some incredible organization to help guide us. These include Take This, a mental health charity, Alda Communication Training and Spartan Wellness, a Canadian veterans’ support group. By working together with these organizations, we’re creating Destiny’s Sword, a video game that provides a healthier gaming experience while promoting cooperation, compassion, and empathy, in stark contrast to the anti-social focus of conventional games.

Beyond gameplay, Destiny’s Sword is focused on ethics-based monetization, in essence, putting our money where our mouth is. This means no pay-to-win mechanics, loot boxes, paywalls, or reward removal means.

In short, Destiny’s Sword is a forward-looking, genre-altering MMO for players looking for unique gameplay experiences. We are deeply committed to moving the MMO industry forward in new ways and believes that the first-of-its-kind game, Destiny’s Sword, will shake the foundations of what an MMO can achieve.
