Destiny’s PS4 version offers full Remote Play support, a feature that the official PlayStation blog explores in greater detail in this new video.
Bungie kept the aim and fire commands up on the portable console’s single pair of shoulder buttons, but made use of Vita’s other control options in translating several remaining elements.
Fortunately, Vita players won’t have to swipe complex commands to execute a melee attack or throw a grenade – a quick tap on the right or left side of the screen respectively takes the place of pressing R1 or L1.
Meanwhile, the R3 button press behind dashing has been moved to down on Vita’s D-Pad, which players should be able to reach without removing their thumbs from the left analog stick.
Sony recommends remote players use a wired connection on their PS4 and only attempt to play while their Vita is on the same network. Remote Play is technically possible over the internet, though results are dictated by overall network conditions.
PS3 and PS4 Destiny players will receive a year of exclusive access to a co-op Strike mission and competitive multiplayer map, among other bonuses.
Destiny is due to go on sale from September 9 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
