Destiny launch trailer is all (live) action

Don’t look for any gameplay in this new trailer for Activision and Bungie’s Destiny, though it still manages to be pretty cool.

As far as live action, non-gameplay trailers go, that was a pretty sharp one, no? Nonetheless, it is pretty interesting that the launch trailer has no actual gameplay in it, since Destiny is a pretty darn good-looking title from all accounts (and our preview). I guess Activision figured that we’ve seen enough of the game in motion though, so here we are with a decidedly social-themed trailer that highlights the fact that you’ll have to work together with other gamers to actually play all the way through Destiny.

Although you can play through a good chunk on your own, you will have to get partnered up with some buds for big time, end game events. It’s a very interesting tactic indeed since it really makes Destiny neither a solo campaign game, nor a multiplayer-only affair- and yet both of those things at the same time. Definitely a new breed of shooter.

Will it go over with gamers? We’ll find out tomorrow (September 9th) when Destiny arrives on the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
