X-Men Destiny Gets New Screenshots

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
Like any great comic series or adaptation, X-Men Destiny will only be as good as the story allows it to be. Developer Silicon Knights (http://www.trueachievements.com/Too-Human-xbox-360.htm, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes) is hoping to create an engrossing story for players when X-Men Destiny releases next month.

These new screenshots depict game environments and characters that should serve as a backdrop for a deep story. The emphasis on player choices and consequences will further that goal, as well.

This first screenshot shows Grant Alexander (voiced by Milo Ventimiglia of Heroes), an American college student in Georgia, with dreams of being a pro athlete.

These images show Aimi Yoshida (voiced by Jamie Chung of The Hangover II), a 15 year old girl who was smuggled into San Francisco by her parents to evade the anti-Mutant agenda in her home country, Japan.

This final pair of screenshots shows Adrian Luca (voiced by Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights), a member of a violent anti-Mutant movement operated by his father. Adrian learns of his powers early on and must flee for his own life.

Throughout the game, players will have the choice of choosing which mutants are friends and which are foes, and doing so helps create the end story. RPG elements also allow for the player to evolve their own skill tree and choose powers from three classes: offensive, defensive, and utility. To check out the new characters and powers in action, check out the new powers trailer.

X-Men Destiny mutates into a retail release at the end of next month on September 27th in North America, and across Europe on September 30th.
