Bungie's New Destiny Trailer Detours to Storm-Wracked Venus

Aug 18, 2014

From Mars to Venus, it seems Bungie's counting down planetary locales you'll be visiting in Destiny, its online-only first-person shooter due out on September 9.

Last week saw our band of intrepid heroes stalking the red-duned surface of the fourth rock from the sun, so this week is about the second.

"Venus was once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost," writes Bungie in the teaser. There's not much else to say about the formerly-greenhouse-gas-suffused planet, which looks lush and bucolic here.

Those peacock-headed mechanoid creatures you're seeing in the combat cuts are the Vex, a robotic alien species that can time-travel and want to exterminate humanity. And I'm guessing those gate things are the warp points from which they'll pour forth to help fill your XP meter.
