Marvel and Activision today unveiled a new game coming to consoles next fall that casts players as new mutant recruits.
The two companies are being pretty tight-lipped about X-Men Destiny, saying only that it will feature a “branching storyline that features a deep element of choice and gives players ultimate control of their destiny.”
It doesn’t sound like the game will have players controlling the New Mutants, but rather cast them as new mutants, all lowercase.
The game will be shown off at Activision’s New York Comic-Con booth starting Friday and running through Sunday. Marvel will also be talking more about the original storyline for the game, which was written by X-Men: Legacy writer Mike Carey, during the Marvel Games Panel on Saturday, October 9, at 10:45 a.m. in Room 1A06.
Skitch Commentary: I’ve been running or a part of New Mutant role playing games online for ten years on and off. This really sounds like a potentially awesome idea to me! Can’t wait to hear more!
I’m really hoping for something like Mass Effect!
Update: Teaser up on IGN!
