There are few games that arrived on shop shelves and console dashboards with the weight of quite so much expectation as Destiny. The game was Halo creator Bungie's first new intellectual property since Combat Evolved graced the original Xbox, and it's multi-platform to boot.

This new edition packs in all the content that's been released so far, including the original game, The Dark Below, House of Wolves and the titular big new expansion, The Taken King.

The game stays true to Bungie's DNA. It blends epic science fiction with grand visuals and fast-paced first-person-shooter action.

Players are the Guardians of the last city on Earth. In their quest to keep the remnants of humanity safe, they walk the ancient ruins of our solar system - from the red dunes of Mars to the dense jungles of Venus. Wielding epic power, they must fight humanity's enemies to attempt to reclaim what was lost when man's Golden Age fell.

Most exciting for Bungie fans, however, is Destiny's multiplayer aspect. Blending aspects of MMO gaming into what the developer is calling a 'shared world shooter', the game matches players to each other on the fly. Sometimes the result is cooperative play, sometimes it's the opportunity to engage in the competitive multiplayer Bungie is famed for, sometimes it will give players the opportunity to visit a shared social space.

A huge array of customisation options for your character that cover both your look and your abilities mean that no two characters will be the same, and it all comes with you through every mode.

With a persistent world that exists beyond the realms of the disc that comes in the box, however, players can expect that Destiny will always be shifting and changing around them.

The Taken King stirs loads of new content into the mix, including a new story campaign and quests, new enemies, new locations, new Strikes and Crucible maps and a new Raid. To help out there are also three new Guardian subclasses along with tons of new weapons and gear!
