Bungie’s been pretty quiet since the release of “Halo: Reach” amid their ongoing development of the sci-fi shooter, “Destiny.” Well, starting next week, we can probably expect to start seeing/hearing more details in earnest as the studio behind “Halo” begins showing the press what they’ve been up to since going independent from Microsoft.
If you head over to the latest B-net news page, Bungie is politely reminding fans to watch their social networks in the coming days for the latest Bungie news. This as some Twitter traffic among journalist pals has been indicating that there is an event out in Seattle this week to see what the studio has been up to for the last couple of years (you know, besides a new “Marathon”).
Thanks to a few judicious leaks in the last few months, we’ve had a chance to see some of the artwork and learn story details about “Destiny,” which is being pitched as an accessible title for your inner seven-year-old:
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.
