It seems nowadays with the intarwebz and all that jazz that it’s a lot easier to spoil and leak game info. And it spreads like wildfire before anyone can put a stop to it. Well info about the story and some artwork about Bungie’s newest game Destiny was leaked to IGN by one of their readers. Bungie is hoping the Destiny universe and lore will become as familiar to gamers as Star Wars has. It definitely looks like they are aiming to surpass Halo’s popularity and leave it in the rear view. Head past the break for some info on the story.
“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.”
Over at Bungie.net they have a little message: “Go ahead. Take a peek. It’s alright. We weren’t quite ready, but we will be soon, and we can’t wait to finally show you what we’ve really been up to.
Stick around, we haven’t even started yet.”
Looks like they wanted to keep Destiny a secret a little bit longer. I’m excited to see what’s to come. You?
