Destiny: Bungie's Next Game Revealed

Runtime: 4:19    Author: destinygame    Category: Trailers

Teased last week, Bungie's new game is official: Destiny has been announced, and it's coming to both the current and next generation of consoles.

Set after a cataclysm that sees man retreat from the Universe to a final stronghold on Earth, besieged even then by alien beings intent on wiping our remnants from existence, Destiny - the first in a planned, 10-year series of videogames - paints a bleak backdrop for its narrative.

"Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler," explains Destiny's official website. "It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned the solar system, but it didn't last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore our old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes."

That doesn't mean humanity is without hope. "You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power," continues the description. "Defend the City. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost."

"Be brave."

The game is further described as "the next evolution of entertainment," with Bungie - the creators of the Halo franchise - suggesting that Destiny will include an "unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, including story, cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes combined with public and social activities."

Destiny is available to pre-order on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 now, and is also coming to next generation consoles. Details as to when the game will be releasing were not announced, however Amazon currently list the title with a publication date of December 31st, 2013.

Halo with more superpowers, and an always online drop in/drop out element?
And for current-gen AND next-gen consoles?


I see Bungie have been practicing their dark magic again!

This is something beautiful. Can it last the 10 years? From what I've seen it looks like it has a fighting chance.

Can't wait!
The HTML code for website includes place holders for numerous systems, PC included. It's in the second section if you examine the HTML.

Of course, it could mean nothing. Considering how close next gen consoles are supposed to be to PC, then I can't see why they wouldn't want it on PC?
