Bungie has released a two and a half long trailer for the upcoming expansion, showing off a great deal of gameplay footage
Yeah - looks like Taken King will have an epic feeling too if all those space battle sequences are cutscenes from the actual expansion.
By far the best trailer Bungie has released. Now to wait and see what is shown in the trailer transfers over to the actual gameplay. I hope that's what Nolan North sounds like, because I'm all for him being the ghost if that's the case.
That's just a trailer narrator, not Nolan North, very curious to see what he sounds like too.
I believe the voice in that trailer is the guy who plays "Osiris", which is pretty cool. They seem far more focused on narrative now. Having North rerecord the entire campaign + additional lore stuff is the best thing to happen to the game. Apparently 'grimoire' will be handled through your Ghost now, which may mean they'll have NolanBot read all of it out. That would be badass.
Lol at the 0:55 mark.. With the Guardian rushing Crota! Guardian down.
I am not going to lie this amped me up a bit. I am hoping they pull me back in with this update. It's going to take alot considering all the releases coming soon. Good time to be a gamer!
I must be insane. I felt the whole thing was extremely cheesy. Like some lame speech given at the climax in some fantasy/sci-fi movie before people go into the final battle.
Yeah very cringe worthy I thought
It's Bungie, cheesy is what they do.
I've been taking a break and playing other games until the expansion releases but damn did this just get me hyped!
New Cinematics in the trailer, they went to work in this past year and it seems that not only will "The Taken" army flesh out Saturn, Saturn's Moon and the Dreadnaut but Earth, Venus Mars and the Moon and apparently the Rift too. So We'll seemingly have multiple missions on every explorable location. I honestly can't wait for it. It really seems like the story will be a bit better
Game Informer: Will there be any big story twists in The Taken King? Luke Smith: Twists? I mean...well, yeah. There's a real story now. That's the twist. They're not shying away from the fact that Destiny's launch lacked a real narrative. It seems like some shit went down in the last year of development that lead to things getting cut, but it's good to see they're more focused there now. That space battle cinematic looked awesome. Reminded me of Halo in a good way.
