Destiny to launch a Refer-A-Friend program

For years, MMOs have had a great way of rewarding loyal players while expanding their player base. Using a refer-a-friend program, players could often reap new rewards, have new people to play with, and of course the game gained more players making the world seem more alive. These programs typically get phased in when numbers are declining, but Destiny is hoping to stay ahead of the curve.

Announced in the latest blog update, Destiny is working on their Refer-A-Friend program, but the details aren’t nailed down just yet.

After this update is deployed, some of the more tech savvy among you will be able to dig up some details for a new initiative we have planned to arrive just in time for the holiday season. We’re planning something new to recognize and reward the Sherpas among you. We are calling it Refer-a-Friend.

Maybe you have a friend who will be getting Destiny as a gift this season. Perhaps their gift-giver will even be picking it up for them at a holiday sale coming to a store near you. If you intend to show them the way to the mountaintop, we’ll have new rewards aimed at recognizing your service to the Kinderguardian.

Right now, we’re putting the finishing touches on the program. We’ll unpack the full and final details very soon.

So how will they know who did the referring? Also, it’s not like WoW or other MMOs where referring a friend could lead to unique mounts or lower subscription fees. I’m curious how Destiny will work this concept into the game. At least now this confirms what we knew all along, right? That Destiny is actually an MMO?

    And it’ll probably taken a year before it works the way it should.

    My referral would advise them to rather play Warframe or Planetside 2 at this point.

    • Guild

      Really?

      • Hammersteyn

        Ssssssssh trying to score browny points and maybe a promotion with Admiral. Dammit now I’ve said too much

        • Guild

          XD

        • Guild

          Stop brown nosing 😛

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          I saw that

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      Wait wait, does that mean that you will play Warframe on PS4 with Dean? O_O

      • Hammersteyn

        Need more time, need to finish backlog a bit and got COD. But colour me interested

      • Hammersteyn

        Though it’s been more than a week since I last played Destiny

        • Poor baby, you must be in shock 😛

          • Hammersteyn

            Withdrawals aren’t too bad, booze levels me out nicely

          • BOOZE I need booze now! Fuck this day is dragging!

          • Hammersteyn

            It’s Friday the 13th. Must be why

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I’ve had two already

          • Nice! I think that’s it, I need a beer!

  • Jonah Cash

    They will need a lot more than this program to entice me back. If they don’t open the higher end stuff with matchmaking then I won’t return or will return one DLC in the past. Will buy the next DLC when the 2nd one from now is out. That way it will feel like my character is actually progressing. Level 34 to level 40 took a day and then the light screwed me over again. No way as a single player to reach higher light than 300. Was in the top 1% with two characters in the Iron Banner as that is how I could get the better gear, but they even stopped that. Screw Bungie!!
