New X-Men Destiny trailer emphasizes choice and consequence

A new X-Men Destiny teaser trailer has been released for the upcoming late-2011 action adventure/RPG title from Silicon Knights (Too Human, Eternal Darkness), and the trailer once again takes players through an epic dialogue on the choice and consequence.

The trailer is similar to the previous trailer that was from the New York Comic-Con earlier this year, but this time the narration seems to be coming from one of the X-Men themselves, like Cyclops, instead of from the viewpoint of Professor X (who was voiced by Patrick Stewart in the last trailer), as he talks aloud the consequences of war.

  • “I know what it feels like to be different. But you don’t know what it’s like to be in a war. It changes you, more than any Mutant power ever could.”

    He goes on to say, “The line between right and wrong, blurs. It’s hard to see the greater impact, of your every choice. No matter where your ultimate loyalty lies, always remember, your genes don’t decide your destiny, you do.”

    However the visuals this time are a lot more direct and intricate. The X-Men cast is still silouetted, but they use their powers in more visual ways as the trailer zooms ahead from one character to the next; And the characters seem to be placed in actual environments, at least one of which looks like it’s a cut from the game. The trailer ends with a real in-game scene, albeit an all-too brief one.

    Once again the trailer puts high emphasis on the fact that this game will be all about choice, deep characterization and the impacts of what you do. Nothing new for videogames, but I like the serious tone that this game is heading in. Still no clear word on whether it will be more action adventure or more RPG, or whether it will be single or multiplayer (perhaps MMO, but it sounds more like a single-player adventure). “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,” reads the press release.

    Here is the new trailer for X-Men Destiny. Epic music.

    Hopefully this will finally mark an excellent turn for X-Men videogames that gives us a high-quality experience along the lines of Batman: Arkham Asylum or Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, both of which tried to offer players a deep, rich experience of quality that past games had lacked. While Batman succeeded in more ways than Spider-Man, X-Men has yet to get the same treatment. However it looks like this game will follow in their footsteps, let’s hope it succeeds. Now all we need is gameplay footage!

    And here is the original teaser trailer.
