Earlier this week Activision released an unlisted video on YouTube that showed a fireteam of three Guardians coming into view only to fade out and be replaced by the words “coming soon.” Bungie would later comment on their own video saying they had a surprise coming in the next few days.
That surprise was a 2 minute live-action trailer titled “Become a Legend” that shows those same three Guardians fighting across the Moon, Venus and Mars to the “classical” tunes of “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. The trailer showcases each Guardians abilities and gives them corny line after corny line to say, but is a cool trailer nonetheless. The last time Bungie did a live-action trailer it was directed by Jon Favreau and called “The Law of the Jungle.” This time around Bungie chose director Joseph Kosinski of Tron Legacy and Oblivion fame.
Destiny releases September 9 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
