The Destiny series has always allowed players to let their imagination run wild, featuring a vast customization system and detailed worlds that have resulted in a lot of creativity. Earlier this week, channel Player One Stories revealed a brand new project that proves just how much the game has to offer creative minds, as the Youtubers revealed their brand new series, called Destiny: Solas.
Using what they call Immersiplay, a unique blend of immersive roleplaying, lets plays, scripted original gameplay, and extremely high production value, Player One Stories crafted a unique narrative to create the first episode of Destiny: Solas. As you can see below, the video follows uses the start of the first Destiny’s story to tell its own tale.
While it may seem strange that someone is creating a story using video games, anyone who has ever seen the Machinima series Red vs Blue – which also used a Bungie series, Halo – knows that the process can yield some amazing results.
For a little more background knowledge on Destiny: Solas and Immersiplay, you can check out the video description below:
A Guardian is risen from the dead by a mysterious visitor, and must now navigate the strange world that surrounds him…
Welcome to our first project made as an IMMERSIPLAY! Something that has been a deeply passionate project for all of us. A unique blending of various different styles of storytelling. We hope you enjoy our journey into this new territory, and we hope you stay for the ride.
What is Immersiplay:
Immersiplay is the unique blend of immersive roleplaying, lets plays, scripted original gameplay, and extremely high production value that is meant to create a seamless experience blurring the lines between actual game content, and faked elements. We do this with professional VO, writing, VFX, gameplay capture, cinematics, sound design, audio mixing, and much more. The idea is to do all this work so it feels as if our original work blends into the game perfectly with a completely fabricated narrative and characters.
NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
I spent so much time tinkering and toying with this idea of making a show and making it feel ridiculously cinematic and immersive. 6 years of experimenting, and I feel Episode 1 here is a pretty good start. I have a soft spot for Destiny so it felt only right to take my love of that world and try to write something in it. I hope you enjoy.
