As promised, Halo creator Bungie has deployed a brand new trailer for Destiny. The clip – which confirms that pre-orders will unlock beta access early next year – sets the overall tone of the interstellar plot, and shows several seconds of acrobatic gameplay. The footage also introduces the Hive, one of four enemy races that are set to feature in the game.

"We have no doubt that Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property," said Activision’s head of publishing Eric Hirshberg. "That means that we're putting all of our creative support, and all of our expertise in creating blockbuster franchises, into a colossal Destiny beta that we believe will set a new bar for the next generation of games.”

Upon pre-ordering the title for the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 at a participating retailer, you’ll nab a code which you’ll need to enter on Bungie’s website. You'll then be rewarded with access to the beta in the spring. Despite some initial confusion, the game will release not long after, though no official date has been confirmed. What do you think of the footage? Let us know in the comments section below.

This looks good, but I'm surprised that people are freaking out over it. It's not exactly blowing me away. What am I missing?

@get2sammyb I don't think we've seen anything that's been truly mind-blowing yet. What I think is getting people hyped is the fact that it's Bungie's next gen game. Like, how could it possibly be anything but astounding?

For me, it's not just the fact it's Bungie, but the fact that it's the type of game I've wanted for a long time. A sci-fi action game with lots and lots of RPG elements. But yeah, it hasn't really blown me away either... yet.

@get2sammyb I think I'm with y'all. It's Halo with power moves and... ? Ship looks like an Arwing heh. I was expecting more sci/fi, a lot less g.d. actiony "cool!!!" stuff. But maybe it'll be the best game ever. Trailer didn't really let us know anything. Halo was cool, but I'm so bored of the trite political/religious plots of late. Even ME2 is taking me a long time to really get going. And I love FF plots, so it's not the genre, it's the writers. I hope it steers clear and maybe focuses on the military perspective or something relatively fresh

It's the next FPS from Bungie and it's a new IP. That's enough to get me hyped.
