Several big name titles are set to release in the up-coming quarter this year, such as Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Batman: Arkham City to name but a few, each of which has been well documented by us and other websites. One game that is also set to release which has seemingly been trying to keep off the radar is X-Men: Destiny.
The game is developed by Silicon Knights, the team behind Xbox 360 exclusive Too Human and we first brought you news about it back in December last year. Since then it has been keeping a relatively low profile, until it was announced by Activision, the game’s publisher, recently to be coming out this week, Friday to be exact. To mark the launch, the team has also released a trailer, which can be viewed below.
X-Men: Destiny is an RPG that allows players to take control of one of three exclusive characters, Aimi, Grant or Adrian. After selecting the character, players must build their own legacy by customizing their powers and increasing their reputation as a legendary mutant. They can choose to side with either the Brotherhood or the X-Men. As they progress through the levels, they can acquire various other X-Genes, the strand of gene that gives mutants their powers, which they can then use for their own.
CVG were able to give a full account of what they thought of the game based on their hands-on time they had with it. Despite being a little skeptical, given the reputation of the developers, they remained optimistic about X-Men: Destiny as they are self-confessed ‘die-hard Marvel fans.’ You can check out their full review by clicking the link above.
Will you be getting X-Men: Destiny this Friday?
