Leaked marketing details have revealed the plot of Bungie’s upcoming game, codenamed Destiny, and after confirming the legitimacy of the information Bungie has also released some new concept art for the title.
The documentation was leaked to IGN and later confirmed as being real by Bungie. The report claims that the aim with Destiny is to “create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise.”
The document also offers some insight into the game’s plot:
“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 confirmed that the marketing report was real and released a teaser piece of concept art (above) with the message, “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.”
