Traditionally, release trailers surface right around a game's release. Hence, y'know, the name and all. Excuse us blowing your minds into tiny, astonished fleshy fragments like that, but some of us just aren't clear on this rudimentary concept.

The mad, mad bastards at Bungie, for instance. Apparently, when you're an awesome renegade charging into the mouth of hell on grandma's mobility scooter, ‘release trailer' can mean whatever you damn well want it to mean. A couple weeks ahead of Destiny arriving in stores on September 9? Why the eff not? Let's do it.

And so, here it is. 2.5 of the most explode-y, space shoot-y minutes we've spent with the game yet (which is damn well saying something). It's got it all: theatrical choir soundtrack, shit-your-pants excited blurbs saying things like ‘masterful game-making' and ‘thrilling,' a whole lot of Halo-esque action... what's not to like?

Those mutant bastards still remind us of Gears of Wars' Locust horde. Those are still some pretty damn sexy special effects. Destiny is slowly showing us more and more, and we're all kinds of approving of what we're seeing. After the rather successful Beta, we're ready to immerse ourselves. Whet your appetite by taking a look above.
