Since walking away from Halo Bungie have been working on something, something really big called Destiny. What Destiny actually was, was anyone’s guess, until that is a leaked document found it’s way on to the net and the developers themselves decided they might as well show off a bit of concept art (above) to go with it. Now we know this.
“Our story begins seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System littered with the ruins of man’s Golden Age. A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it’s here for, but only that it’s our protector. Meanwhile, strange alien monsters creep in from the edge of the universe, determined to take Earth and the Last City. We are young ‘knights’ tasked with defending the remains of humanity, discovering the source of these monsters and – eventually – overcoming it.”
I’ll admit it doesn’t tell us much about where Bungie hope to take Destiny, or where it’ll take us when it finally makes it début next year but combined with Bungie co-founder Jason Jones description of a space adventure which aims to “create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise.” We can say Destiny, although still hazy in the distance looks bright and promising.
