A couple of weeks ago I was given access to the Destiny 2 Beta. Wow, what a crazy game. I am not one for first person shooter type games and haven’t played them in a while. However, Destiny 2 was pretty dang amazing. The graphics were incredible and the game was a lot of fun. I’m actually going to be receiving a copy of the game for the Xbox One on launch day. I haven’t played it enough to really give a full on in depth review of the game. I played it for a couple of hours before I had to stop. I’m not used to the whole first person shooter thing and got a little dizzy. But, while I did play I had a good time up until I had no clue where to go. I am getting old in the gaming world. Luckily there are already tons of people out there making great videos of the game and they can help you though the hard parts. It is launch day so why don’t you check out this fantastic live-action video. The two-minute live-action spot, “New Legends Will Rise,” depicts Destiny 2’s heroic character, Cayde-6, as he rallies three Guardians into a battle to defend Earth against the invading Red Legion. The spot is directed by Kong: Skull Island Director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and set to ‘Sabotage’ by Beastie Boys. Cayde-6 is voice by none other than Nathan Fillion and he plays it to his playful best.

You can pick up the game today. Fans of this genre of gaming will really love it. I’ve never seen so many crazy weapons and cool characters. So choose your Guardian and get into the fight! Here is the Official Trailer of the game and below is an official launch press release with so much great information for you. Take a look.

In Destiny 2, every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. Players can choose from playing the cinematic, story campaign, venturing into the expansive destinations to join in cooperative modes including Strike missions. They can also explore and complete Quests, Adventures and Patrols, or uncover Lost Sectors and Treasure Chests, while rallying with other Guardians to dominate Public and Heroic Events, Flash Points, and more.
