X-Men: Destiny's Comic-Con trailers detail voice talent, confirm September 27 release

Silicon Knights has had a bumpy decade, so it’s nice that it looks like the developer is getting back on track since the fiasco that was Too Human. The first step is the upcoming Marvel/Activision game X-Men: Destiny, a title that puts you in the shoes of a new recruit instead of one of the battle-hardened regulars. Comic-Con saw the release of a couple of trailers, one showing off the gameplay, another detailing one of the three main characters and voice actor that plays him, and both contain the useful information of when the game comes out.

As both trailers show, just because you play as original heroes doesn’t mean you aren’t surrounded by dozens of classic X-Men characters. From what we’ve seen, we’re optimistic about this one, as the serious choices that put the player between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants sounds like a good hook. Additionally, the San Francisco setting has won over the Bay Area natives in the GR staff, even if the continually shifting ground of the setting isn’t all that close to reality. Despite its mistakes, we’re fans of Silicon Knights and will be watching September 27 to see if it all comes together for them this time.

    I get to experience "going from the darkness into the light" EVERY time I want milk from the fridge! Have THAT "Adrian"! I don't need the risk of a pretty shonky and wobbly looking Silicon Knights X-Men game sans playing as , you know, an actual X-Men character. Maybe it's the right way to go seeing as good Marvel based games are rarer than rare things and a properly blank slate character may be easier to pull off within that universe but, to me, it feels like double the risk with the To Human AND Marvel poisoned chalices both at the same time. I hope this game is, for once, worth us still not getting a sequel to a certain SK game that we ALL want made!! Never mind going from the darkness to the light I wanna go back for some Darkness of the Eternal kind! Probably never going to happen now but every time I see DD's company mentioned i still hope.

    Probably too early to judge, but to me it looked like a typical superhero brawler like most marvel games

    So was this a game that got forgotten about back in 2007? Can we please get more super hero games like Batman? :(

    Wow from these videos the game play looks rubbish. Really disappointed.
