The buzz around Bungie's new project continues to build. An update to the schedule of the 2013 Game Developer's Conference (GDC) revealed that the former "Halo" developer will be giving a sneak peek at it's PS4, next Xbox (aka Xbox 720) and PC franchise, "Destiny".
It's unclear what or how much will be shown of "Destiny" but Bungie does promise a "glimpse" of the "brave new world that has been built" during its presentation at GDC which starts on March 25 in San Francisco, CA.
"Destiny" is rumored to be a first-person shooter with MMO elements set around the last city on Earth. A massive ship known only as "The Traveler" hangs sits in the sky like a second moon according to the previously leaked details for the game. Meanwhile, alien monsters are attacking the city as players take on the role of "knights" tasked with defending the last remnants of humanity.
