Hilarious New Destiny 2 Live-Action Trailer Urges Guardians to Fight for the Puppies (VIDEO)
Arguably, one of the most anticipated titles set to release this year is Bungie’s Destiny 2. With the added changes from the first title, fans and newcomers are definitely feeling the hype. With the console release just around the corner, the Destiny team had one more card up their sleeves to further promote the franchise. A new Destiny 2 live-action trailer has been released, reminding Guardians that the most important things that were lost are worth fighting for.
The Destiny 2 live-action trailer, which can be seen below, hits heavy with plenty of action, but also reminds fans that we play games for fun. The comedic speech featured through the entirety of the video is delivered by none other than Nathan Fillion’s (Firefly) character, Cayde-6. The action and humor in the trailer are accompanied by the Beastie Boys’ Sabotage, which becomes the cherry on an already impressive showcase:
The action-packed trailer was directed by Kong: Skull Island Director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who also happens to be working on a Metal Gear movie. In an interview, the director talked about his vision for the trailer. He claimed that he wanted to appeal to newcomers as well as the seasoned veterans. Vogt-Roberts stated:
It’s trying to bring people who might not know about Destiny in; [at the same time,] I’m working really hard within that to protect and [capture] the best version of what Destiny is for the people who already love it. To walk that tightrope of trying to reach as many people as possible who may not think about playing a sci-fi shooter or have never heard of Destiny before. And have it be splashy and cool and this brand new thing, but then it has to be something that people who are Bungie fans, Destiny fans – the core players who stay up all night, people who raid – that they can also be proud of it and say, ‘Fuck yeah, that’s my Destiny. That feels like the world that I fell in love with; that feels like the aesthetic that I fell in love with.'”
Destiny 2 arrives on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 6th while the PC version doesn’t land until October 23rd. What did you think of the Destiny 2 live-action trailer?
