In Destiny, men are from Mars, horrible alien robots are from Venus

Read our full Destiny review.

The latest trailer for Bungie’s upcoming opus Destiny takes us to the lush jungles of Venus where time-travelling alien robots called Vex are hell-bent on eradicating humanity. In Earth’s glorious, lost age that predates the events of the game, humankind terraformed our sister planet to support a vibrant array of life, and now we are returning to see what secrets may still lie dormant.

“Venus was once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost,” Bungie’s blurb for the clip reads. The trailer shows off Venus’ bucolic environments, a stark contrast to the recently-revealed red dunes of Mars, and a healthy dose of Guardians dispensing mayhem against the Vex onslaught as they pour out of portals.

Destiny touches down on September 9 for PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
