Leaked Info on Bungie's Destiny

IGN has been handed documents containing all sorts of details about Bungie's new game: Destiny.


"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.” Elsewhere in the document, the massive alien ship is referred to as “the Traveler.”

Destiny is described as “fun and accessible to all,” aiming “to create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise.” A quote from Bungie co-founder Jason Jones says “Destiny is designed for your inner seven year old. We want to make it feel like a mythic adventure.”
Destiny’s gameplay is described by the document as “social at its core,” offering “a world to explore with friends, both old and new.”
The document also includes a Destiny logo along with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 icons, as well as the URL Destiny.com which is currently password protected. 

Bungie released the following statement and image on their website in response to the leak:
“We’re not quite ready to take the wraps off our next universe, but in light of recent events we thought we’d give fans something a little more official over at Bungie.net. Feel free to drop by and say hello! There’s much more to come.”

  1. It's Master Chief going back in time with what remains of Requiem.

    1. I wouldn't be surprised, knowing where Pathways Into Darkness went into the Marathon progression, that this is a similar engineering of how one story branches off from another.

  2. Very fascinating theme and visual detail going on here. "The Traveler" has already got me speculating....
