X-Men: Destiny First Details Revealed

By Dave Horobin, 7 years ago
This months edition of Official Xbox Magazine UK, reveals the first details of Too Human developer, Silicon Knights' X-Men: Destiny.

According to OXM's four page preview, the game is set in a time when anti-mutant sentiment is at an all time high, hate crimes are the norm and the X-Men are seen as a threat. Add in the mix a recent devastating loss for the X-Men, and the promise that there will be "tough decisions that an average X-Man has to make", and you have all the makings of a great story.

You will play as the the child of a "human zealot" who considers mutants to be "nature's greatest mistake", and have the pick of three different candidates to choose from, each of which have been officially integrated into the X-Men canon. As you progress, X-Genes will allow you to modify and enhance your mutant powers by colleting the genes of other mutants, adding further to the games "decision moments".

Unsurprisingly, X-Men: Destiny will be packed full of recognisable faces including Magneto, his son Quicksilver, Wolverine, Gambit, Surge and Cyclops.

If all of this doesn't appeal to you, maybe the teaser trailer from the 2010 VGA's will:

No release date has yet been announced, but here's hoping for a speedy release.
