Bungie Reveals New Shooter: Destiny

The folks at Bungie have been working silently on an all new franchise since attaining their independence from Microsoft and moving over to Activision. Titled Destiny, the new franchise they’ve been working on is slated to be properly revealed throughout the week as the studio raises the curtain on the game and present it to the public.

Bungie’s first reveal of Destiny is a video documentary titled “Pathways Out of Darkness”, which reveals that the game is set in a mythical sci-fi universe with both magic and technology.

Destiny is designed as a persistent online shooter with a main online component, and it’s coming to both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. Players take on the roles of the few remaining survivors on Earth following an intergalactic cataclysmic event that leaves much of the planet in ruins. In case you missed it the first time, the game requires an internet connection to play, and strongly reflects Activision-Blizzard’s move towards turning their games into services.

Playing the role of Guardians, players will be aided by a mysterious entity known only as the Traveler who aids the players in their mission to defend Earth and travel to distant planets to unravel the cause of the apocalypse and other mysteries.

The video contains details and concept art of the game revealing three character classes, including the Hunter, Warlock, and Titan.

Activision and Bungie are expected to release further details about the game in the coming days. In the meantime, check out the video above.

This game looks interesting, but I’m disappointed that its a FPS game. Im not sure how much of a success this game is going to be if developers only focus on one demographic. This game is not for me unless they incorporate a third person perspective.
