Another impressive gameplay demo shown off at E3 was for Destiny, the next endeavor for Halo creators Bungie, which is a first-person shooter that also has multiplayer elements.
The game is set 700 years in the future after the Golden Age—an age of peace, prosperity, technological advancement, and exploration that saw humans spreading out and colonizing various planets in the Solar System—before an apocalyptic event known as the Collapse destroyed almost everything, ended the Golden Age, and left known survivors only on Earth, where a giant sphere known as the Traveler (seen above)—which gave humans the power to expand into space centuries earlier—protects them.
In Destiny you’ll play as a Guardian of the City who must investigate and neutralize hostile alien races who have taken over some of the former colonies humans had established and once occupied, and are on their way to the City, where the surviving human race is now living.
You can check out a new trailer for the game and a co-op gameplay demo below now.
