Former Bungie developer suggests studio embedded teaser artwork in 2009 shooter.

 

Just this week, Bungie released the first piece of concept art for its new game, believed to be called Destiny. However, it appears the studio embedded a Destiny teaser more than three years ago in Halo 3: ODST and none caught on until yesterday.

A Twitter user sent former Bungie developer Vic DeLeon (who now continues to work on Halo at 343 Industries) an image from Halo 3: ODST (at right) that bears a resemblance to the leaked artwork from Bungie (below) and contains the line “Destiny Awaits.” DeLeon responded with, “It’s finally been found!”

Notably, the same Earth-like planet is shown in both images, with a smaller white globe not far away.

Along with a range of images, the leaked Destiny document describes Bungie’s new game as “fun and accessible” with a “deep, tangible and relatable” universe that is compared to the Star Wars franchise. The game is also described as “social at its core.”

According to the document, Destiny’s plot revolves around an alien ship bent on destroying Earth and the “knights” tasked with defending what’s left of humanity.

Trophy listings suggest id Software’s 2011 first-person shooter adding new content, possibly to include “Ultra Nightmare” difficulty.

 

id Software’s first-person shooter Rage may be more than one year old, but it appears new content is in the pipeline for the game. PS3Trophies.org reports that ten new Trophies are coming to the shooter, half of which focus on a new job path titled “The Scorchers.”

In addition, one Trophy is awarded to players who finish the game on “Ultra Nightmare difficulty,” suggesting the expansion brings a new level of challenge to Rage.

A representative with publisher Bethesda was not immediately available to comment.

This is not the first time “The Scorchers” has been tied to Rage. A PEGI listing from earlier this year first revealed the content. For more on Rage, check out GameSpot’s review.

Newly released Aftermath expansion for EA shooter includes Faith’s running shoes, audio of her panting.

 

DICE continues to tease a return to Mirror’s Edge. YouTube user xXHerseyBoyXx has spotted (via MP1st) Mirror’s Edge protagonist Faith Connors’ running shoes atop one of the buildings in Battlefield’s latest expansion, Aftermath. Additionally, Faith can be heard panting near the shoes.

Last week, former DICE employee Ben Cousins said it is “general knowledge” in the Stockholm, Sweden development scene (where DICE is located) that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production. The game has been the subject of rumor for years.

The original Mirror’s Edge launched in November 2008 to a warm critical reception. Previous reports claimed the sequel was being developed by a small team, before being stalled, but not abandoned.
