Destiny Trailer Lays Down the Law of the Jungle

A space wolf is nothing without its space pack.

Bungie's upcoming MMOFPS Destiny has the attention of quite a few among the gaming community, but we haven't seen much of the game first-hand. A recent live-action trailer sheds some light on the intra-stellar adventures coming in the full game, and ... well, we still haven't seen any first-hand footage of the game. But we at least get a gorgeous video, directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau and featuring some chilling prose.

In Destiny, you play as a Guardian of the City, one of the defenders of humanity's last bastion on Earth. Each of the three classes of Guardians is impressive, but if this trailer is any indication of their role in society, they're downright legendary. Then again, it's hard not to romanticize the notion of talented warriors flying across the galaxy to combat vicious alien enemies. Especially the Hunter, who takes down half a dozen gigantic Cabal warriors with a single revolver - somebody needs to nerf that guy.

The core gameplay of Destiny is at least somewhat present in the video: the Hunter, Titan, and Warlock classes work in tandem to take out a variety of enemies, and we get a glimpse of human and alien vehicles. This is just a taste of what's to come, though: the trailer tips us off to the fact that Bungie will be debuting its worldwide gameplay reveal at the PlayStation E3 press conference on June 10, 2013.

Destiny will launch on the PS3, PS4, Xbox360, and Xbox One, though we'll have to wait for the E3 press conference for more details. It is interesting to note that Bungie decided to hold the big reveal at Sony's party, rather than Microsoft's or some third-party event - it seems that the former Halo developer is taking its new multiplatform freedom to heart.

Bungie/Activision: Release it on PC too you bastards! If you are pushing it out on PS360 I guarantee you, our hardware can run it!

So.... Team work?
That's something I didn't expect from Bungie

But the next console generation will outstrip your current gen PCs! Why do you want to hold us back?
Bungie really Xboned PC gamers

Guys. I'm throwing money at my screen but nothing is happening.

God dammit Bungie, you know what I like. Still my favorite developer.

You know what I took away from this trailer? Gus is in this game!

So... we have seen a video with some crappy CGI and some concept art..... and people are excited about this? This is quickly becoming the most hyped up game ever. My god, people! User your sense!

okay, that's it. I'm sold, now take my f**king money

It's simple really. Bungie is making a first person shooter. Bungie has made a name for itself making a very popular first person shooter. Therefore, it's safe to say that people who like said first person shooter will like this one.

Besides, the style is just gorgeous and the concept is pretty interesting. There aren't that many universes where Humanity has space travel but is still stuck inside the Solar System. Apart from Cowboy Bebop that is.

The most hyped up game ever is pretty exaggerated.

Nobody's calling it a 10/10 yet, can't people be excited about a new game from a developer that they may think has a good track record?

Oh hey Bioware, you gave us some fantastic games like Dragon's Age: Origins and Mass Effect 1. There is no way you can fail now since you have gone to EA. :P

Now just replace Bioware with Bungie and EA with Activision.

Edit: My personal favorite. Replace Insomniac with Bioware and EA with EA. :P

1. Bioware made Mass Effect 2 under EA, which was my favorite in the trilogy.

2. Most of the complaints directed at those who didn't like the newer games where that things like the RPG elements were being dumbed down. Bungie is going from a linear shooter to a non-linear shooter. Pretty much the opposite of dumbing down.

3. Activision doesn't really have the same reputation as buying out developers and destroying them that EA does. From what I've seen, the complaints concerning them are more about them milking Call of Duty to death. Plus they have published some good games without destroying the series if what I've read is anything to go by. Like Prototype and Transformers War/Fall of Cybertron.

Oh hey, bad games are sometimes released.

Better assume all games to be released in the future will also be bad.

Lovely looking trailer, great storytelling there... and nothing that tells me anything I didn't know about the game already. Yay...

It's rare we get to see a big new IP pushed forward and supported so strongly by a developer, especially since they seem to actually care about what it turns out to be as a game. I know it's not much, I guess I'm excited to see something that isn't a modern military shooter where you blow up brown people in nonspecifiedistan.

That music, Marty has been busy. . . oh and the game looks nice as well.

This 100% this.

Anyway, I TRIED the disk port and the money still won't make anything happen.

In case anyone was wondering, "The Law of the Jungle" is from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. According to Wikipedia,

The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families and communities.

You can find the passage here.

Normally, I'd be right there with you: any other game -ANY other game- and I would be right there, but I think this one time, just this once, I'm going to let myself get a little excited over this upcoming title. Bungie hasn't let me down thus far (save for Halo: Reach, but then I never considered it BAD, just 'meh'), so I'm gonna give them a little bit of slack and show some trust in them.

Once in awhile, you just gotta let yourself look forward to and get a little excited over an upcoming title, but that's just what I think.

problem is if any one new anything they would know alot of people who made halo left bungie and went to 343, so bungie is a rather different studio know and also people wouldnt have got their knickers in a twist (im feeling very british today) about 343 making halo

and while i dont doubt their is talent at bungie im not getting excited unitl we actually anything about this game however his voice did massage my ears into a mini orgasm

Uh...Why not? Co-op has been in Halo for quite some time now, and Halo was always more fun with your friends then alone.

Anyway, I'm intrigued by the surprisingly large amount of Gus Fring in this trailer. I still don't know enough about this game to get really excited, but I'll certainly be keeping an eye on this one.

That guy should be doing audiobooks, he's got a great voice.

Why aren't they releasing it on PC? Most of the MMO playerbase seems to be on PC.

I reeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllyyy hope we'll be seeing some gameplay footage at E3.

I wan't to be legitimately excited, rather than trying my hardest not to get excited and failing.

(Although, after the Aliens: Colonial Marines fiasco, can we really trust gameplay demos any more than CGI trailers to be properly representative at this point?)

A tiny number of ex-Bungie employees joined 343 Industries, not "alot." Frankie is the only one of any significance who did so and nobody cares about nor misses him anyway.

Way more important and influential members of Bungie have left the company over the years and it has never stopped them making good games. Alex Seropian and Max Hoberman to name but two.

So the Guardians operate in group of three?

Either way if they release it for the pc at some point in the future, it look like I will have to upgrade my pc to run it.

Holy shit, Gustavo Fring.

My first impression was Morgan Freeman narrating a story about a New Californian Republic Ranger fighting the Marines from StarCraft. Not forgetting they borrowed some of the speeder bikes from Star Wars.

The game overall looks to be pretty fun, but that trailer did nothing for me.

Still hyped for this game regardless of Activision being in the mix and it looks like PC only people may have to get their feet wet and actually go out and buy a console and enjoy it like everyone else.

Nuttydwarf:
okay, that's it. I'm sold, now take my f**king money

At least wait for some gameplay footaage.

This trailer has almost exactly nothing in it. Some average CGI, and a bloke reading a book. Doesn't seem like anything to get interested about yet.

This trailer doesn't really answer any questions, especially the ones about how many players will be able to play together at once(at least three doesn't really help). However, I am intrigued about the speeder bike battles. I hope they work like Chopper battles in Halo 3.

Well, this could be intere...wait, no PC release? Pfff.

I'm not impressed, some random characters standing out in the open and shooting at oversized bad guys? Ya thats some deep gameplay there.

No PC. No gameplay. All CGI and concept art. PISS OFF.

It looks okay, the designs of everything seems to lack focus being mainly low rent star wars looking stuff, and the trailer reeks of the "fur coats and nae nickers" that is in all of bungies trailers, a lot of arty talk and nice music descising a game with a low quality of writing and story which is not only poor but rips off every popular science fiction book ever written whilst missing the important points of the book. but it is only one trailer and it doesnt seem from all the talk that story is the main focur and i like co-op game, so i'll keep checking in.
