Activision and Bungie's official Destiny 2 reveal trailer has rocketed into our geeky realm, and its futuristic Earth-bound images are extremely impressive. The sequel to the sensational shared-world, multi-player science fiction video game that hauled in $500 million in pre-order and first-day sales when it was launched in 2014 was the most expensive video game ever designed, with a stratospheric price tag of nearly a half-billion dollars!

This initial Destiny 2 promo for the follow-up, titled “Rally the Troops,” shows Commander Zavala (Lance Riddick) and Cayde-6 (Nathan Fillion) trying to recruit new Guardians, each with quite different and amusing results.

Study up on the official game synopsis:

In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. The official Destiny 2 reveal trailer, “Rally the Troops,” shows two of the Vanguard, leaders of the Guardians, inspiring the people of the last city in an impassioned (and occasionally sarcastic) call to arms. In Destiny 2 players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.

“The past three years have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for Bungie," said CEO Pete Parsons. "To know that millions of players around the world have forged lasting Destiny memories and even made it their hobby is truly humbling, and we can’t wait to continue the journey.” He added, “We are looking forward to sharing a fresh, inviting story, and with the upcoming Destiny 2 Beta slated for this summer, we are eager to get feedback from millions of players around the world who will get a glimpse of the new adventures that will unfold for all of us. Together with our partners at Activision, we are thrilled to get Destiny 2 in the hands of players in September.”
