Activision sent out a brief press release today announcing that X-Men: Legacy writer Mike Carey is writing the story for a video game called X-Men: Destiny. The details are fairly sparse at this point, but the game will allow you to play "as new mutant recruits in a rich, branching storyline that features a deep element of choice and gives players ultimate control of their destiny." Huh, maybe it's akin to Dragon Age or Mass Effect, but with superheroes? That actually sounds very cool.
Here's the press release:
A new breed of mutant heroes will invade game consoles next fall in X-Men(TM): Destiny, from Marvel(TM) Entertainment and Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). The all-new original video game casts players as new mutant recruits in a rich, branching storyline that features a deep element of choice and gives players ultimate control of their destiny. Attendees of New York Comic-Con, which is going on now through October 10, can get a sneak peek of the game in Activision's booth #1833. In addition, fans can learn more about the original storyline which is being penned by acclaimed Marvel X-Men: Legacy writer Mike Carey, during the Marvel Games Panel on Saturday, October 9, at 10:45 a.m. in Room 1A06.
