Watch This: new Destiny gameplay video


Destiny! Not just any Destiny, but Bungie’s Destiny! It’s the next big thing! Or is it? There seems to be a lot of next big things at the moment. Anyway, perhaps you’re a Bungie faithful, steadfastly standing your vigil until they release their next genre-changing masterpiece? If so, then this is for you! And maybe that person standing behind you reading this over your shoulder; they look pretty stoked about Destiny as well.

In this newly released gameplay video you can watch as three Guardian characters explore a lair belonging to one of the game’s enemy races, the Fallen. According to the official Destiny website, The Fallen are “hardy creatures who can survive in a wide range of environments without heavy armor or complex modifications to their physiology.” While they look like lowlife scavenging scum from the backwaters of our galaxy, they actually show “hints of a splendid, sophisticated past, and the proud markings of their ancestral “Houses.”” This particular sect of the Fallen, we can assume, belong to the Devils house, as the video involves the three players taking on the “House of the Devils’ lair”.

From the looks of things this is running on the PlayStation 4 just judging from on-screen prompts, but I stand to be corrected on that one. Hit the jump to see what looks like Borderlands meets Halo meets any fantasy role-playing game you’re particularly fond of.

Destiny is hitting PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on 9 September 2014.
