Bungie has revealed new details and artwork from the upcoming open-world shooter Destiny which seems to pointing to a new reveal at E3 2013.
“You’re going to have to wait for E3 to see what we have planned. All we can tell you is that it’s a show you won’t want to miss,” said Bungie via the Facebook page for Destiny. The official Destiny website site locations for Mars and Venus currently have no details and instead have “Awaiting reports from the Vanguard.”
Specifically, Bungie has given us a new look at a part of the world of Destiny not yet seen, the Frontier. The Frontier is the remnants of Earth which have been rendered inhabitable by mankind. “The wilderness beyond the walls of the City are ruined and corrupted, claimed by nature and our enemies,” reads the description. “From the war-torn fortresses of the Twilight Gap to the skyward steppes of Old Russia, evidence of our lost glory still litters the Earth, waiting to be rediscovered.”
Given the ambitions Bungie has with Destiny, this is only a small look at what Bungie is planning to show us.
Destiny is a huge, open world game which will allow players to explore the vast universe Bungie is planning to give us. We’ve already had a good idea plus a brief look at the game in action yet we haven’t actually seen anything of what remains of Earth beyond the City, the last human stronghold on Earth.
This location is Earth’s Moon dubbed “The Forbidden Zone” in Destiny. Bungie is remaining tight-lipped on why the Moon has its new moniker. “Early exploration attempts have proven too dangerous,” reads the description with the art-work. “The City has since classified Earth’s Moon as a Forbidden Zone.” The reasons as to why it’s forbidden probably have something to do with that massive hole in the surface with what looks to be the ruins of buildings in the surrounding area.
Bungie has a loose release date of 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game is also due for release on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox Infinity (or whatever it’s called). Destiny is part of a long-term deal signed with Activision to produce games over the next couple of years.
