If this French retailer is to be believed, Bungie’s new game Destiny could be here sooner than expected. The possible leak is from French website micromania.fr, a gaming retailer purchased by GameStop in 2008. Along with a possible release date, the page offers some insight as to what type of game Destiny will be, and how the player will be involved.
You are a Guardian, protector of last haven of life on Earth, armed with incredible powers. You must defend the city. Defeat our enemies. And look what we have lost.
• The future standard of entertainment: a unique scenario in a connected world permanently totally new, full of action and adventure.
• Create your character, then forge your legend by defeating powerful enemies and gaining weapons, equipment and vehicles, all unique and customizable.
• Offering a unique variety of game, a shooter that redefines the genre and breaks with the conventions campaigns solo, competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes, and associated with your social networks.
Keep in mind that this is simply a rough translation from the retailer page, but there’s still quite a lot to be gained here. These details seem to line up with rumors that the game will contain MMO-like elements, while keeping Bungie’s shooter pedigree involved. We’ll know for sure if this holds any stock this weekend when Bungie is expected to reveal more about Destiny. When that happens, check back here. Until then, we definitely have plenty to talk about.
