Destiny, the new open world massively multiplayer game from Bungie, is only six months away from being in our hands. With Bungie working hard on getting the game completed they’re currently in a position to share more information about the games player classes and the games enemies that you’ll face in this huge and ambitious title.
The new video which you can see above follows an update to Destiny’s website which also discusses the three classes, collectively known as Guardians, in more detail. Destiny, when it launches, will give us the choice between three characters; Titan, Hunter, and Warlock. Each class has its own back story and character style which can be easily recognised between the three classes no matter what level you are.
The first Titans built the Wall, and bravely gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same place, steadfast and sure. Our enemies are deadly and merciless, but so are you. You hail from a line of legendary heroes and your strength and skill will be needed to shatter their ranks.
Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. Making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. But you are no outlaw, at least, not anymore, and your unique brand of daring and ingenuity will be needed now more than ever.
Warlocks have long studied the Traveler, mastering some of its arcane energies. Its true purpose still remains a great mystery, but discovering truth has always driven you into the unknown. Now, our enemies stand between you and your greatest discovery – the secrets of the Golden Age.
Bungie also briefly details some of the games enemies that you’ll be facing, in the latest website update, these are called Fallen, Hive, Vex, and Cabal.
Fallen are hardy creatures who can survive in a wide range of environments without heavy armor or complex modifications to their physiology. They travel light, hit hard, and are gone before you know it. Fallen may look like mere scavengers, but on closer inspection you will see hints of a splendid, sophisticated past, and the proud markings of their ancestral “Houses.”
Hive manipulate the physical world in ways that we can only begin to imagine. The Hive have carved a kingdom deep into the lifeless core of the Moon, and it is there they remain, silent and buried among many dark and terrible secrets, a reminder of the tremendous power that brought forth the Collapse.
Scattered reports indicate that the Vex appear to be mass-produced machine units, constructed of an unknown metal alloy resembling hammered brass. All attempts to communicate with them have failed. They are hostile. They are unrelenting. They are deadly.
Few Guardians have faced Cabal and lived to tell the tale. They are a professional military operation. On every front we have found them on the march, they have already dug in and ringed their installations with razor wire. Now, it seems they’ve turned their eyes towards us.
The video which you can see above merges all three of the videos from Destiny’s website giving us a quick look at the three player classes courtesy of GamesHQMedia.
Destiny is set to launch into beta a few months before the official launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 9. To get access to the beta you must pre-order the game from participating retailers.
