Activision and 72andSunny have come together to create a blockbuster live-action launch trailer which is building the excitement and momentum leading up to the global launch of Destiny. The spot, “Become Legend,” is directed by Joseph Kosinski who has directed Oblivion and TRON: Legacy in the past. The trailer features a Fireteam of Guardians on an epic, action-packed road trip across our Solar System to face our enemies, take back what is ours and in the end, Become Legend. The 90-second shortened version of the “Become Legend” live action film has debuted also in the United States during the NFL season opener on NBC between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.

The Dust Palace Strike Preview
The buried Martian city of Freehold, long abandoned, is home to a decaying artificial intelligence of immeasurable value. This lost power has drawn the interest of the militaristic Cabal, and their brutal forces. That means the Guardians have some work to do in this white-knuckle, cooperative mission set within the Dust Palace.
You can gear up with two friends for the Dust Palace Strike in this deep, engaging, loot-dropping mission to take down the Cabal in an ancient ruin on Mars. The Dust Palace Strike is Playstation timed exclusive until Fall 2015 (US Timing). Ryan Clements, Playstation Social Media Specialist, showcases the type of resistance Guardians will face, including the Cabal’s elite troops that harness psionic waves to dispatch any who oppose them.
PS Vita Optimized Controls
Using the PS Vita you can enjoy Remote Play experience for Destiny, which enables you to wirelessly stream the game from your PS4 to your PS Vita. A few months ago during the Destiny Beta, a lot of PS4 owners were streaming Destiny to their PS Vitas via Remote Play. In fact, it was seen that Destiny was the No. 1 title for Remote Play during the entire month of July, racking up the most Remote Play sessions of any PS4 title. So the Bungie team has actually optimized the controls for Destiny on PS Vita via Remote Play. You can check the full control layout for the PS Vita below:
