‘Destiny’ Lands Official Trailer [Video]

Destiny, the new game from the makers of Halo, has landed an official trailer.

Up to this point, Bungie has told us next to nothing about their new project other than it wasn’t Halo and it would be epic. Wait, they did say it looked great, teasing the fact that they weren’t giving away any details. Now we know a little bit more about their new project known only as Destiny.

Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Gustavo Fring on AMC’s Breaking Bad , starts the video reading The Jungle Book to a child. He emphasizes strength in numbers using wolves as an example, and this is just the narrative.

The narration says, “Pay attention, son. This is the part of the story that’s really important. Now, this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky. The wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that gurgles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back. For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.”

As this is said, we see a man in a mask and ragged hood standing on a hill with two others. It cuts to a room where Giancarlo Esposito is reading The Jungle Book to a child, and outside the window we see a spacecraft flying between what looks like two planets. Cutting back to the guy in the hood and mask, we see him aiming a rifle at an alien in the distance, and as he’s seen, he fires.

The three from the beginning are seen fighting back to back against a swarming horde, guns blazing. Then we see men or something riding small space crafts quickly over the terrain as one is shot down, exploding on impact with the ground.

The rest of the trailer is above, and Bungie plans to show a gameplay demo at E3 2013. Destiny is slated to hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in 2014.
