Destiny will be hitting consoles in one week, and to get ready Bungie has announced Destiny Planet View, an interactive website that lets you explore the many worlds of the game. Using Google’s technology, the experience is similar to Google Earth or Google Street View, only with a narrator and the ability to learn about the universe and enemies of Destiny. You can experience it for yourself by clicking here, or check out the announcement trailer below to see how it all works.
Explore the future, meet our enemies, discover hidden treasures, and prepare to Become Legend
Bungie describes Destiny Planet View by saying “This is your chance to walk through the Moon, Mars, and Venus of Destiny, using Google’s familiar exploration tools. Explore the future, meet our enemies, discover hidden treasures, and prepare to Become Legend.” I’ve messed around with it for the last few minutes and it really helps flesh out the world and story of the game.
Destiny takes place in our solar system and will feature levels on Earth, The Moon, Mars, and Venus. All of the environments were once human colonies that have been abandoned due to the encroachment of “The Darkness”. In the Destiny Planet View you’ll get to check out ruins both human and alien and explore how the enemy’s invasion has reshaped the land.
Bungie has always done well with adding extra content through the web. Check out Destiny Planet View and let us know in the comments what you think. Destiny is certainly shaping up to be one of the biggest games of the year, and stuff like this only help to strengthen the excitement building around the launch.
