Bungie has released a quick set of screenshots from its upcoming game Destiny through the PlayStation Tumblr, and the factions battling against one another could not be any more different.
On one hand, we have the robots, slick mean killing machines without a shred of humanity or soul to them. The single red eye is an iconic image of simply being an evil robot, and Bungie has done its part to make these things as unsympathetic as possible. Who knows, they could turn out to be more like the Geth, though.
Going to blows with them are the hooded and cloaked spacemen. We’re not sure why, but drapes are in fashion with these soldiers, giving them a strange blend of Halo‘s Spartans with the cast of Fire Emblem. It’s a bold and original design choice for masked space marines, but you have to wonder how the physics of the material are going to work in the frigid cold of space.
One of these guys in particular dons a red cloak and causes “death from above,” just a like a good old fashioned ninja… in space. He’s awesome.
Destiny is bound for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on Sept. 9.
