X-Men Destiny Trailer | E3 2011

So another game (besides the Raiding of Tombs) came out of left-field for me at this year's E3 and that was a new Activision title X-Men Destiny for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 due out this fall.  Again, another "behind-the-scenes" look with Activision garnered us about 30 minutes with the team showing us their latest creation.

Knowing nothing about the game, it appears you play as a "unique" mutant, not one from X-Men canon, but one that you will "personalize" as you play and interact with all in the universe as you make your way towards deciding which mutants to side with.

The team showed off some playable levels and how the choices you make will affect the branching storylines depending on which side you choose.  This one also looks really good.  It was after the end of the demo, that I realized that Denis Dyack was in the back of the room, and I realized this was being developed by Silicon Knights.  I have faith this one actually has some legs (unlike Too Human which suffered from legacy issues, and frame rates, etc).  SK really has a pretty decent track record for games, most forget they were responsible for the great Legacy of Kain series, and even Eternal Darkness on the Nintendo GameCube.  I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

Check out the launch trailer below.
