Destiny offers unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, including story, cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes combined with public and social activities.

Set in the distant future, Destiny casts players as Guardians of the last city on Earth, who traverse the ruins of our solar system from the red dunes of Mars to the jungles of Venus. Players must battle enemies and reclaim what was lost during the collapse of mankind. Destiny's saga unfolds through grand tales and sweeping adventures by immersing gamers in a world with cooperative, competitive, public, and social activities.

Personalize and upgrade every aspect of how you look and fight with a nearly limitless combination of armor, weapons, and visual customizations. Take your upgraded character into every mode, including campaign, cooperative, social, public, and competitive multiplayer.

The PS4 is the only place to discover an exclusive competitive multiplayer map, strike mission, and the expanded arsenal you need to truly become legend.

Dust Palace

Deep in the Dust Palace, a skyscraper buried deeply in the sands of Mars, the Cabal have captured a human Golden Age artificial intelligence construct that still hums with life. Fight through the Cabal army. Defeat the Psion Flayers. Reclaim the construct.

  • An exclusive three-player cooperative Strike that can be played with friends, or matchmade.
  • Track a Cabal extraction team through the husks of an ancient human skyscraper buried in the shifting dunes of Mars and face a new enemy, the Psion Flayers.
Exodus Blue

Out among the ruins of the Cosmodrome lies the Colony Ship Exodus Blue. This long-dead vessel once brought hope and humanity to worlds beyond Earth. Now it’s a battlefield for our greatest champions. Here, Guardians challenge one another, forging a new hope and future in the fires of the Crucible.

  • Exodus Blue is a mid-sized Crucible arena that pair perfectly with Control and Skirmish game modes.
  • Broken pipes at the edge of the dry-dock provide an ideal route and vantage point for players who prefer ranged combat cover.
  • Broken arms from a massive shipbuilding crane have smashed down onto train transports, providing those looking for close quarters combat a unique entrance to the interior.

Gear Sets

 

Manifold  – Warlock: The Manifold Seeker armor was built to help Warlocks survive the secret realms of the Vex. Don it and brave the pocket worlds buried in the nameless depths trapped beyond space and time.

Vanir – Titan: A battle-tested armor set forged to protect Titans against the heavy firepower of the Cabal. Vigilantly walk the frontier prepared for anything the enemy will throw at you.

Argus --Hunter: A durable all-environment wire-weave for those out to scout the frontier. Break any Fallen stronghold and know you will survive.

Weapons

 

Monte Carlo – Exotic Assault Rifle

  • Handcrafted as a showpiece, the Monte Carlo's sleek look masks the cruel reality of its function – the efficient, elegant delivery of war against any who would tarnish its legacy. 
  • Elegant line work emblazoned into the weapon’s body and a clean, well-defined pattern make the Monte Carlo stand out in a crowd.
  • The Monte Carlo’s long, smooth lines extend into a bayonet that is both beautiful and imposing in its implications.
  • Upgrades increase the Monte Carlo’s “hip fire” effectiveness and boost melee cool down, providing a firm grounding for close range domination.

 Hawkmoon – Exotic Hand Cannon

  • The Hawkmoon is a true gunslinger's weapon - a smooth sidearm that makes every bullet count... Some more than others.
  • Intricate “hawk feather” etchings carved into the weapon’s silvered barrel hint at personality and a handcrafted touch.
  • The horned sight rack, accessories and “talon” crafted into its handle give the Hawkmoon a unique silhouette.
  • Damage boosts increase the Hawkmoon’s combat effectiveness, making it a very formidable weapon.

Player Ships

 

“Aurora Wake”: A hull lined with arcane instruments, crafted by a circle of Warlocks – gifting the ship with a preternatural sense for the strange.

“Crypt Hammer”: A deep-strike insertion variant, built to carry Guardians safely through contested space. Carries hardpoints once used to hold Suros TL-SEAD anti-radiation missiles.

“Outrageous Fortune”: A rugged, versatile explorer for those ready to gamble everything in search of ancient secrets and alien power.

 

 

Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. Long ago, it breathed new life into our system. Rain washed over Mars. Fresh air cleansed the skies over Venus. Soon after, humanity raced into the black, and colonized these newly remade worlds. It was a time of miracles – a great Golden Age.

It did not last. The Traveler had an ancient enemy. A powerful darkness that found us here on Earth, and nearly destroyed us. No one knows exactly what happened in those final moments, but we know this: we survived, and we owe our lives to the Traveler.

In our darkest days, Humans, Exos, and Awoken found the Traveler where it made its last stand, low above Earth, silent and immobile. We built the City – our last – within its protective veil, fighting countless wars to keep its peace. From that dark age, Guardians were born.

Now, a new era has begun, and the only hope for our future lies in unlocking the greatest mysteries of our past. You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield some of the Traveler's incredible power. You are taking this mantle just as a new day dawns. Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks have finally returned to our long-lost worlds, only to find out we are not alone.

Defend the last safe City on Earth. Defeat our enemies. Explore the ancient ruins of our solar system. Discover all that we have lost.

Become legend.
