Several hundred years into the future mankind has reached the stars. For awhile our species flourished and colonized the planets in the solar system. However all age’s of prosperity must end. An alien race lying in wait in the core of Earth’s own moon made sure of that. After destroying the colonies and laying siege to Earth only a final city remains. The player takes on a role of a Guardian, the defenders of the last surviving members of the human race.
Of all of the games revealed over the past few months, Destiny is one of my most anticipated. While the game is open world and is an always online FPS with MMO elements, it will not be a traditional MMO experience. The upcoming FPS from Bungie, the creators of Halo, is slated for release in the Spring of 2014. Preorders net you a promotional code to try out the beta which, according to the email I received, drops early 2014. So while the beta is a ways off, there’s apparently a limited amount of codes to go around. Destiny will be available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3.
