So – it’s been a long time coming but Destiny is the name of the next game from Bungie – the developers behind the massively successful game HALO.
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.
Loving the futuristic steam punky look that’s going on. And I like the fact the characters are described as knights (that satisfies my love of medieval stuff). In fact I think the art style is really nice – a lot better than HALO, which has never been my favorite game series.
Initially this was a leak – but now it’s been announced properly on Bungies blog.
Will be interesting to see how this turns out.
