Players of online multiplayer Destiny 2 has recently noticed something interesting after long-lost guardian Saint-14 appeared up in the tower.
Destiny 2 Saint-14 gimmick
When players turn up in the tower with
the same helmet of Saint-14, he would take notice of that player and have a
unique dialogue. He will notice that player wearing the same helmet
specifically humoring it and then suggest pranking Zavala with it, which is the
stoic and famously humorless command of the Vanguard.
This was a very clever and cute
interaction with the NPC, but this actually almost did not come to be. Technical
dialogue designer Kareem Shuman explained that narrative designer Nikko Stevens
first came up with the line, after which it was recorded, imported and then
processed. But with the required rewords, it was supposed to be cut and then
Shuman got involved.
Shuman decided to try extra hard to make
it work since he thought it was a cool idea. He asked for help from his friends
and senior designer Brenton Woodrow assisted him in the endeavor. It turned out
great it seems and many players appreciated this little quip.
The full game is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
