Destiny was released by Bungie (the company famous for games like Halo and Marathon) last
year in 2014, and received mostly positive reviews for its gameplay and multiplayer. Destiny‘s story on the other hand suffered much more criticism than Bungie’s previous games which are usually famous for their in-depth plots, intricate settings and casts of characters. The main complaints about Destiny were that the story was too short, and that there was hardly any story to begin with. But what if Destiny‘s story is actually meant to be more intricate than was revealed in the game?
The basic plot of Destiny is that some point in the near future, humanity encounters the Traveler, a large spherical object hovering over Mars causing large rain storms. The Traveler enables humans to colonize the Solar System and ushers in a “Golden Age,” until the “Collapse,” which saw humanity’s empire crushed by the Darkness and the last survivors residing in the City, which is protected by the Traveler and is the last safe city on Earth. Eventually humanity attempts to reclaim what it lost, finding that four alien races have since taken over the former colonies on Venus, the Moon and Mars and are attempting to take over Earth. The player takes the role of a “Guardian,” a warrior who is granted the Traveler’s power in order to fight the Darkness and the aliens encroaching on Earth.
