That’s right! Luke Smith, creative director of The Taken King expansion for Destiny said that Sparrow racing was always a thing on his mind, but he just wanted to make sure it was done right. Well I’m pleased to bring news from Bungie to you, It’s here. Sparrow Racing is just around the corner, for more information read more!
Sparrow racing will be thrown into the game for FREE with the next patch to come to destiny! Now, I will say that when I said “free” I meant free for those who own The Taken King expansion. This is a long anticipated aspect of Destiny that I have wanted for so long, and the announcement came with a trailer! If you haven’t watched it, it’s okay, take a moment and watch it here, but make sure to come back for the rest of the article!
Now after watching that trailer, there are some things to talk about. New armor sets that look fantastic! Why wouldn’t I want my character to look like a european formula 1 driver? The suits are so slimming, it’s beautiful, I’m in love. Next, new Sparrows? Hell Yeah! I’m tired of the sparrows that all look the same and have similar abilities, this is an area of aesthetics that I’ve always felt Bungie lacked on, but now there are new chassis! I cannot wait to show Oryx my new Sparrow the next time that I take him down in the raid!
Now, here I’m going to talk about something a little concerning. These tracks, they aren’t just filled with adrenaline junky guardians. The darkness lurks on these tracks, and they get totally annihilated! I absolutely cannot wait to plow into a Vex Goblin at mach speed as I drive through spinning fan blades, yelling to my Xbox, “Record That!” as his metallic body rips apart and his biomechanical mind core implodes leaking white juices everywhere. I want this to evolve into a Mad Max style of gameplay for me. I want the biggest and baddest engine carrying me through the wastelands racing the others, fighting the others. I’m “fanboy-ing” over here. I must apologize, but I absolutely love Destiny, even if I don’t agree with everything Bungie does, I grin a bear it. I have waited so long for this addition to my favorite game and it’s here. December 8th, Tuesday, I’ll see you on the tracks guardians.
