Destiny is Halo-creator Bungie's brand-new, massively multiplayer first-person shooter. It's out for Xbox One and PS4, as well as Xbox 360 and PS3, in 2014.

The Pitch:

"Destiny is an action game from the creators of Halo, set in a mysterious future. Create a unique and powerful character, customize the way you look and fight, and explore what remains of our solar system. Destiny features a compelling storyline, competitive multiplayer, cooperative gameplay choices, wide open public combat destinations, and third-person community spaces where you can repair and rearm before going out on your next adventure."

Key Features:

  • Massive open-world gameplay that takes you from a futuristic Earth to Mars, Venus and other worlds in our Solar System
  • Huge range of customisation options for players, weaponry and other game elements
  • Integrated multiplayer encouraging "Journey-like" encounters and interactions
  • Next-gen graphics

Impressions

While we saw gameplay footage of Destiny in action at this year's Gamescom, we didn't get hands-on time. The title was well-received and won several awards, but we'll have to reserve judgement. In the meantime check out the above mini-doc - the same as screened to the press behind closed doors - for insight into the development process.
