The Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next March is shaping up to be a fantastic show, and today organizers want to make sure you know about a great talk from Bungie about the storytelling in its 2017 hit Destiny 2.
The talk is about how the Destiny 2 team told stories in the game, but it's on the Programming track of talks so you know it's going to be both technical and unconventional.
The talk, "Walking, Talking, and Projectiles: Storytelling Tools in 'Destiny 2'", will see Bungie senior tools engineer Evan Moran going in-depth into Bungie's new visual scripting tool called the Scene Editor that builds stories by coordinating AI movement and behavior.
This technique for non-cinematic stories keeps players in the heart of the action; Moran plans to showcase several examples from the beginning of Destiny 2 and explore the ways this new visual language supports complex coordinated interactions while chronicling surprises and pitfalls the team encountered along the way.
Plus, we have lots more GDC 2018 announcements to make in the coming months. For more information about GDC 2018 visit the show's official website, and subscribe to regular updates via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS.
