Details regarding Destiny, Bungie’s next game, have leaked online and the company has confirmed their accuracy.
Some of the game’s story details are revealed through a document created by an advertising agency that was put together as a presentation for Destiny and had the following description for the game:
“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 to the leak Bungie was happy to release an official statement and the image above.
In the advertising document the, “massive mysterious alien ship”, is referred as the Traveler, and is said that Bungie is seeking to make Destiny as universally accessible as the Star Wars universe. Bungie’s co-founder Jason Jones speaks about the foundations of Destiny saying it “is designed for your inner seven year old. We want to make it feel like a mythic adventure”; describing the gameplay of Destiny as “social at its core”, and with “a world to explore with friends, both old and new”; which fuels the past rumor about the game being an MMO.
