'Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned our solar system, but it didn't last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore our old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes.
You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Defend the City. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost.'
Destiny is a franchise that is planned to consist of four games. The story is one heavy on science fiction and takes place some time after humanity's mysterious downfall.
Once a space-faring race that had explored the solar system, humanity is now restricted to just a single city on Earth thanks to the strange protection the power of the Traveler (the white globe pictured above).
You play as a defender of that city - someone who can use the power of the Traveler - and must defend the sieged city from its deadly alien foes.
Destiny's story will cover various solar system locations, including Mars and the moon. It is a dark, gritty storyline but one which is also full of hope.
