Our solar system is the playground of Bungie’s new universe, Destiny.
Centuries from now, human civilization has spread far beyond the confines of Earth, stretching outward to the Moon, Mars, Venus, the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. Mankind’s Golden Age comes to an end when an unexplained cataclysmic event all but eradicates our species.
One safe city remains on Earth, shielded from harm by a mysterious entity known as The Traveler. This cracked white orb hovers silently over the last remnants of humanity’s Golden Age, protecting us from total annihilation. Knights known as Guardians, protectors empowered by the Traveler, seek to uncover the mysteries of humanity’s downfall and keep it safe from persisting threats.
This is the setting of Destiny, the beginnings of a decade-long collaboration between Halo creators Bungie and publisher Activision. It’s a world “where any story is possible,” Bungie says, and where players — as the Guardians of Destiny — will become legend.
