Bungie's Destiny: First Artwork, Plot Details Emerge

Leaked design documents have revealed images and plot details for Bungie’s Destiny.

The first game from the development team that created Halo, Destiny’s art style looks to combine elements of Star Wars, Halo itself, and in one of the character designs, Killzone.

Bungie co-founder Jason Jones confirmed the leak, saying “Destiny is designed for your inner seven year old. We want to make it feel like a mythic adventure.”

The leaked doc reveals Bungie’s intention to "create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise," while the game itself is described as "fun and accessible to all," with "social at its core."

Story details have been outed too. The document says, "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."

Following the leak Bungie updated its website, saying "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."

This game looks nice. I enjoyed the Star Wars games, the whole futuristic scenery appeals to me. I hope the finished product is as good as it looks.

Lovely concept art, but some info would be nice. If its an RPG great, it could be an MMO though...

Looks like the halo killer they been talking about, its going to be really awesome to see what they do with this project. Looks like it could shape up to something really cool an different.

This looks like it will be a big game franchise for years to come if the universe is as in-depth as they claim! I only pray its not a MMO hopefully just a RPG

I'm not so sure about this. I thought they were going to do something truly unique but instead they've just ripped off two of the biggest game franchises in history.

I love Bungie but this whole thing just smacks of desperation :(. I really hope I'm wrong about all this I really do.

I hope its not an rpg or mmo...i honestly have no idea what to expect but im going to stay confident in bungies ability to come in clutch! They made halo. Maybe this is the next halo except I can play it on a PLAYSTATION!!!!!! They should wait til PS4 for this release and make it the first game on the shelf for PS4. The halo fanboys are already talking about this i'm sure they would leave there crappy XBOX's behind for FREE ONLINE and better graphics but sony needs to fix there controller XBOX haters hate on sonys controllers complain of the small asian design and i kind of agree. Anyone else care to comment?
