Bungie is launching its next great gaming franchise next week with the much-anticipated release of Destiny. Well, they apparently wanted to introduce the game to the world in style, since they hired Oblivion/Tron: Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski to direct a badass live-action Destiny trailer. Here’s the official synopsis for Kosinski’s Destiny short, which you can see above:
A Fireteam heads out on an epic, action-packed road trip across our Solar System to face our enemies, take back what is ours and, in the end, Become Legend. Featuring ‘Immigrant Song’ by Led Zeppelin.
Destiny is set in the distant future, after mankind had spread throughout the solar system in a Golden Age jumpstarted by a mysterious alien sphere/artifact known as “the Traveler.” Unfortunately, that Golden Age was smacked back down to Tin after enemies of the Traveler arrived to ruin everyone’s day. Players take on the role of Guardians, defenders of the last great human city on Earth, as they attempt to drive back the darkness and reclaim Earth, Mars, Venus, and beyond.
