Bungie’s Destiny website gets content-rich overhaul


Bungie’s highly-anticipated FPS, Destiny, reveals more details on character classes, enemies and planets over on the recently updated website.

The website for Destiny was updated a few days ago with new details and trailers for the classes, plus info on the enemies you’ll face, and planets you’ll explore. The trailers aren't stand-alone videos however, they're built into the website within each character class section.

The three classes; Titan, Warlock, and Hunter, all have their own gameplay trailers, showcasing what you can expect when you get hands on the game in September – or this Summer if you’re in the beta.

The Titan class is the ‘heavy’ of the three – an all-rounder assault type. Sporting assault rifles and heavy rocket launchers, jumping into the fray and bashing his enemies to death, the Titan also has a dome-like shield ability.

Warlocks are said to have ‘long studied the Traveler’, the mysterious spherical entity that hovers above Earth. Their studies have granted them the ability to use magic-like powers to ‘Paul Daniels’ their enemies into submission.

Hunters are Destiny’s stealth class and ‘once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards.’ Sporting a blade for sneaky takedowns and melee scraps, they appear to be the most agile of the three classes.

Four of the enemy races have also had details revealed:

Fallen - 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 - 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.

Vex - 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.

Cabal - 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.

But don’t just take our word for it, head on over to the new sleeker looking website for more info.

Destiny is due out on 9 September 2014, for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Those who pre-order the game will also get access to the beta this Summer.
