Bungies new project, Destiny, has been reluctantly unveiled, following leaks to IGN that provide concept art and story information.
“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.”
In response Bungie updated their blog posting:
Well that just happened… again.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
Destiny will launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a previous leak suggesting a 2013 release date.
