This year is embroiled in a tangible sense of excitement that's eating away at gamers around the world; a collective who're patiently waiting for the full force of the next generation of gaming to come to fruition. After an underwhelming launch lineup for both the PS4 and Xbox One, 2014 promises a vast array of heavy hitters that are poised to dazzle the masses by showcasing the true prowess of the next-gen consoles.
Heavy emphasis has been put on the shared world experience that Bungie's Destiny has to offer, and while a great deal of excitement has surrounded it, many fans have been left worried at the prospect of not being able to play by themselves.
Amidst all the sure-to-be surprise world premieres at tonight's VGX awards, one that was to be expected was Bungie's latest trailer for Destiny.
Since its reveal, Destiny's hype has only been preceded by the confusion that surrounds it. With one side of the community calling it a first-person shooter/MMO hybrid, whilst the others see it as an RPG, Bungie have finally shed some light on the debate.
Sony's Playstation 4 All Access event was packed with surprised last night, including the reveal of a new uncharted game. Following that was another massive announcement; that the Destiny beta will be coming first to the PS3 and PS4.
After a short break from the scene, Bungie appear to be back in action; answering various questions concerning their upcoming next-gen hit Destiny.
Discussing space travel, micros transactions and the possibility of a PC port, Community Manager Eric Osborne tore the veil away from some of the game's more intimate features in an interview with IGN.
Those who pre-order Destiny will reportedly gain access to the game's beta in early 2014.
Bungie and Activision have today revealed the box art for their upcoming next-gen shooter Destiny.
Jess interviews Bungie's Community Manager, David 'DeeJ' Dague, about the studios exciting new IP, Destiny.
After spending 10 years with the definitive Halo franchise, Bungie decided to break away from Microsoft studios to explore other ventures. The byproduct of their hiatus is Destiny - a game already hotly tipped for 2014's Game of the Year.
Take a look above as Bungie Studios (awkwardly) walks us through the gameplay video that was first revealed during E3 2013 last month.
This is a must-watch for fans of the game, so give it a look and visit http://www.destinythegame.com/ for more information on Destiny!
Destiny is one of the games we are most excited about seeing next week at E3, and with the promise of more news at Sony's press event, it's time to take a look back at what we do know about the title.

As expected, Bungie's highly anticipated shooter, Destiny, will take to the stage at Sony's E3 press conference next week; which was confirmed on Twitter last night.
Whilst many people may have expected Destiny to feature at Sony's conference, some Microsoft fans may feel slighted, as this surely means that we'll see even more tasty exclusive content for Playstation owners - which they hope will rival Microsoft's content exclusivity of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Hot off the presses, we have the live-action trailer for Bungie Studios' upcoming first-person shooter Destiny. The trailer - dubbed 'The Law of the Jungle' - can be viewed above and Destiny arrives on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One later this year!
There have been a few bits and pieces of fresh information from the team at Bungie Studios on their upcoming first-person shooter Destiny, but with this influx of new information, where does one go to get caught up?
To answer that question, we created this page. A one-stop shop for all of your Destiny lore needs, gathering up all of the recently released information and tidbits into a single convenient location. Without further ado...
In Destiny, you play as an elite Guardian, protecting one of the last safe havens on Earth.
Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned the 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.
There are a good deal of things that we don't know about the PlayStation 4 but from what we do know, this is going to be a beast among consoles. The reveal event for the console promised more power, a better online experience than what PlayStation Network currently offers and the capability for some truly gorgeous games.
But you know us, we're all about shooters. First-person, third-person...it doesn't really make a difference. So, naturally when I heard about the PlayStation 4, I started getting excited for a new breed of console shooters.
There are a few promising shooters coming to the PlayStation 4 that we know of already, but not all games are created equal. Without further ado, here are my Top 3 Most-Anticipated PlayStation 4 Shooters!
Note: this is the first edition of our list, as more games are announced for the upcoming next-gen console, we will release an update to this list. Like any good first edition, this one will be worth hundreds of millions of dollars in the future.
We're a little late to the party with this one, but Bungie revealed some gorgeous new artwork and a video for Destiny. This fresh look at Destiny comes from the Game Developer's Conference that took place last week in San Francisco.
You can check out the video above, but be sure to check past the break for a whole slew of new concept art and images from the world of Destiny!
It looks like Bungie is getting ready for the future of Destiny as they file a handful of trademark applications. We don't explicitly know that these are Destiny related, but as Bungie isn't currently working on any other known projects, we think it's safe to assume.
The trademarks were filed for the following:
These applications are for protection for a number of uses including 'interactive game software; audio books in the nature of novels, comic books, graphic novels, posters, Halloween costumes' and so, so much more. Likely, most of these uses are 'just in case' measures and we probably won't see most of them come to fruition. But don't forget that Destiny is an Activision-published game and they are ambitious, if nothing else.
I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see Destiny pushed as hard as possible and if that includes a Halloween costume for that guy at the top of this post, count me in.
Bungie Studios made headlines this week with the announcement that their Halo-sucessor Destiny would be arriving on the PlayStation 4 in addition to both current generation consoles.
With a franchise that is projected to span 10 years, it makes sense that Destiny would end up on next-generation consoles but it's great to hear that players won't have to wait long to get their hands on the next-gen version of the game, as it will likely ship alongside the PlayStation 4 this Holiday season. In their latest Mail Sack, Bungie developers have answered a bunch of fan questions on the world of Destiny and even revealed a brand new piece of concept art which you can see above.
In the Mail Sack, Bungie talked briefly about the PlayStation 4 announcement and pre-order incentives. On that second front, they said:
There are three pre-order incentives currently available at select, participating retailers. There’s a two-sided poster available at GameStop and EB Games Canada featuring artwork of the Traveler over Earth on one side, and the Fallen on the other. Select retailers outside of the US also have the Traveler art, but the B-side is occupied by the Cabal. We’re working to get the full list of non-US participants, but if you ring up your local shop, they should be able to confirm whether or not they’re on the list.
If you pre-order through Amazon.com, they’re currently offering a digital wallpaper featuring the Destiny logo and the inky, black starfield backdrop you’re probably well familiar with.

Last night, Sony officially lifted the lid on the PlayStation 4 and with that announcement came a slew of new titles being revealed. In the case of Bungie's Halo-successor Destiny, we learned that it would not only ship on the PlayStation 3 but the next-generation PlayStation 4 as well.
This news was not entirely unexpected as Destiny is projected to span across multiple titles for the next 10 years. With the PlayStation 3's lifespan gradually coming to an end over the last year, it was inevitable that Destiny would arrive on the PlayStation 4 in some capacity but it's great to hear none the less. At last night's Sony event, Bungie's Jason Jones was on hand to make the announcement.
Jones said that he felt that Destiny and the PlayStation 4 are a great fit together because both the game and the console are always connected and make such good use of that connectivity.
Chances are, Destiny will also be arriving on the next-generation Xbox 360 but we'll have to wait a little bit longer until Microsoft is ready to start talking about that console. In the meantime, check out Destiny at http://www.destinythegame.com/.
