Destiny’s launch heralded in a shower of explosions and quotes

Read our full Destiny review.

Explosions and quotes. That’s what you’ll get from this new Destiny launch trailer. A hyperspeed runthrough of gameplay clips and appropriately hyperbolic statements from earlier press coverage.

The game is Bungie’s first post-Halo effort. It’s still a sci-fi shooter set in humanity’s distant future, but with a much broader scope on the design side. You can feel echoes of Halo when you play it, but the speedy, satisfying gunplay is complemented here by enormous exploration-focused environments and a massively multiplayer approach to social play.

Destiny comes to PlayStation and Xbox consoles on September 9, 2014.
