November 5, 2014—Insight Editions, in collaboration with Destiny creator Bungie and publisher Activision, is pleased to announce they will be launching a publishing product line based on the groundbreaking new video game franchise, which starts hitting shelves this month:
On September 9, the highly anticipated game launched at over 11,000 midnight openings around the world in over 178 countries, and sold-through more than $325 million worldwide in its first five days, marking it as the best-selling new video game franchise launch of all time.
Insight Editions' products will not only look behind the scenes of the year's biggest game, but also offer exciting ways for gamers to explore and interact with Destiny for a greater depth of experience.
In Destiny, you are cast as a Guardian of the last city on Earth, able to explore the ancient ruins of our solar system in a social, living universe filled with other players. You will journey through environments spanning the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus while creating your own legend as you and your friends venture out into the stars to reclaim the treasures and secrets lost after the collapse of humanity. Over the course of your adventures you will become more powerful as you wield rare and exotic weapons, gear, and super abilities. In addition to the story campaign, you can take your unique character into any co-operative or competitive activity, including the ability to compete with or against your friends in The Crucible, Destiny's competitive multiplayer mode featuring numerous playlists and maps spanning diverse environments across the galaxy.
