Destiny Live-Action Trailer Debuts

Bungie released a new live-action trailer for the upcoming project Destiny and stated gameplay will be shown for the first time at E3.
The Destiny trailer, entitled The Law of the Jungle, was directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau and stars Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito.
Live-action is combined with CGI elements to create the new trailer for Destiny. Esposito’s character is shown reading an excerpt from Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel The Second Jungle Book, presumably to a child.
[adsense250itp]“Now this is the way of the jungle–as old and true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back–For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack,” the excerpt reads.
While Esposito’s character is narrating the excerpt, three characters from Destiny are seen fighting off hordes of enemies using futuristic weapons and special abilities.
Action in The Law of the Jungle takes place in a desert-like alien environment. Characters are seen on board hovering motorcycle-like vehicles in a scene that is reminiscent of the Star Wars films.
The end of the trailer reveals that the first gameplay footage of Destiny will be shown during the PlayStation press conference at E3 on June 10.
Destiny was officially revealed as the latest project from original Halo developer Bungie. The game is expected to launch in 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Destiny is a highly-social, science-fiction first-person shooter set in the future. The game will require an always-on internet connection. Bungie revealed further details on Destiny on the game’s official website, including enemies and classes, earlier this month.
