Heading to living rooms soon is the somewhat anticipated X-Men: Destiny. While I do look forward to this game, I won’t be lining up for it or anything. Don’t get me wrong, I love the premise and the gameplay looks adequate. But usually when I play an X-Men game I want to play as an X-Man(or Woman). I may be a little picky here, so let’s just say I will be picking it up when it comes out, but my expectations aren’t huge.
The box art was recently released along with a behind-the-scenes video that talks about the game and the voice cast, which might actually surprise you. Here’s the box art from The Daily Blam:
In the action-RPG X-Men Destiny, you control the fate of a new mutant in the X-Men universe. Every choice has a consequence, as your destiny is determined through the decisions you make as you advance through the game. Play as one of three new characters in X-Men lore, each one of whom must come to terms with his or her unique background and powerful mutant identity while uncovering the truth behind an epic event that threatens to tear apart the tenuous peace between humanity and mutant kind. Evolve and customize your core mutant powers with an opportunity to earn and equip “X-genes” to expand and alter your power base. Choose which path to take in key moments that impact your story and how other characters respond to you. Fight alongside and against famous mutants from the X-Men comics, including Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost and more. Will you choose to follow the teachings of the X-Men to unite mutants and humans, or will you usher in a new age of mutant domination with Magneto’s Brotherhood? YOU decide.
Here’s a look at the BTS trailer:
Okay, that does look pretty interesting. And they have a good point, it will be good for something new. I’m definitely interested in pimping my character out with different powers and costumes.
Here’s a few new screenshots from SuperHeroHype‘s updated photo gallery that show a few of the costumes your characters can wear:
I’m a sucker for costumes. if you have a large selection of costumes that are awarded in game, chances are I’ll enjoy it. Don’t know why. I’m sure there’s a joke there somewhere. Anyways, X-Men: Destiny comes out on Sept. 27th, which I guess will hold me over until Batman: Arkham City comes out a couple weeks after.
What do you think? Are you interested in this new take on the X-Men universe or will you let this one pass by?
