Watch the ‘Destiny’ Launch Trailer From the Director of ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Tron: Legacy’

We’ll profess to not knowing a whole lot about ‘Destiny’ – the new console game from Activision and developer Bungie (‘Halo’) – but after watching this new launch trailer directed by Joseph Kosinski (‘Oblivion’ and ‘Tron: Legacy’), our interest level is definitely raised. At the very least, we’d watch this movie.

For the uninitiated, ‘Destiny’ – described as a first-person shooter with elements of a MMORPG that Activision refers to as a “shared-world shooter – goes a little something like this:

In Destiny you are a Guardian of the last city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system, from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Defeat Earth’s enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost. Become legend.

It’s interesting that the characters in the game (and in the trailer) are called “Guardians” because this trailer gives off a major ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ vibe, which in the current marketplace is probably not a terrible thing. Why not compare your upcoming franchise with the biggest movie of the year so far? And, it very well may work. ‘Destiny’ is projected to be a “billion dollar series” (that’s billion with a B). If the above trailer looks expensive (including the licensing rights to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song”), don’t worry: the game itself cost over $500 million. Whatever the budget was for this trailer, it was just a drop in the bucket.

What you see above is the full-length version of the trailer with a truncated version airing later tonight during the NFL kickoff game between the Seahawks and Packers.

‘Destiny’ is set for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 9.
