Leaked pre-order materials for Destiny, Bungie and Activision’s new game set to be unveiled on Sunday, have revealed story and gameplay details ahead of the upcoming announcement.

A Best Buy pre-order card obtained by Destructoid reads the following:

From the creators of Halo and the publisher of Call of Duty

Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned our solar system, but it didn’t last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes.

You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Defend the city. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we’ve lost.

Be brave.

Key Features:

  • The next evolution of entertainment – an incredible story set within a newly-imagined, always-connected universe filled with action and adventure.
  • Create your character, forge your legend by defeating powerful foes, and earn unique and customizable weapons, gear, and vehicles.
  • Unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay that redefines the genre and breaks traditional conventions of story, cooperative, and competitive multiplayer modes, combined with public and social activities.

Joystiq has obtained shots of a double-sided poster available as a pre-order bonus for Destiny at GameStop. Pre-orders will begin Monday, meaning Sunday’s announcement will include platforms.

Additionally, French retailer Micromania has listed the title, complete with box art and description, for an October 6 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Stay tuned. The official announcement arrives Sunday.

    You know, the set up sounds interesting, but I just cant stand have a mix and match main character that doesn’t really have anything to him.

  • Himiko

    I cannot wait for this. Lovely looking game now that Bungie isn’t tied by Halo!

    Sounds like an MMO (always-connected universe) with maybe some Tower Defense elements (Defend the city).

    I guess they must’ve changed the leaked contract if its coming out on PS3 also, which is great

  • Prodigy-X

    Good so its releasing on PS3 & 360 at the same time.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Im almost 100% sure.

      Releasing it a year or so after would only serve to damage the games sales,I dont think they are that dumb..at least i hope.

      • Prodigy-X

        I knew Bungie weren’t going to do it but knowing Activision they always have something against PlayStation ever since the first COD game during the PS2 Era.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          MS actually pays Acti huge amounts of money for stuff.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Yes! I’m super hyped right now. If it really is hitting PS and Xbox simultaneously, then they’ve just guaranteed my pre-order.

    Let’s go Feb. 17th! Feb. 20th!
