Leaked design documents have revealed images and plot details for Bungie’s Destiny.
The first game from the development team that created Halo, Destiny’s art style looks to combine elements of Star Wars, Halo itself, and in one of the character designs, Killzone.
Bungie co-founder Jason Jones confirmed the leak, saying “Destiny is designed for your inner seven year old. We want to make it feel like a mythic adventure.”
The leaked doc reveals Bungie’s intention to "create a universe as deep, tangible and relatable as that of the Star Wars franchise," while the game itself is described as "fun and accessible to all," with "social at its core."
Story details have been outed too. The document says, "Our story begins seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System littered with the ruins of man's Golden Age.
“A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it's here for, but only that it's our protector. Meanwhile, strange, alien monsters creep in from the edge of the universe, determined to take Earth and the Last City.
“We are young 'knights' tasked with defending the remains of humanity, discovering the source of these monsters and - eventually - overcoming it."
Following the leak Bungie updated its website, saying "Go ahead. Take a peek. It’s alright. We weren't quite ready, but we will be soon, and we can’t wait to finally show you what we've really been up to.
"Stick around, we haven’t even started yet."
