Silicon Knights' X-Men: Destiny - first details
11th Jan 2011 | 12:26
The first details on Silicon Knights' (Too Human) X-Men Destiny have arrived, via the latest Official Xbox Magazine UK.
According to OXM's four-page preview, the Eternal Darkness developer is aiming to place a greater focus on the "tough decisions that an average X-Man has to make".
This is exciting for fans, since the game will apparently take place at a time when anti-mutant sentiment is at an all time high, hate crimes are rampant and the X-Men have recently suffered a devastating loss, all of which paves the way for some potentially interesting scenarios.
Players will take control of the child of a "human zealot" who considers mutants to be "nature's greatest mistake", reveals OXM, and have a choice out of three different candidates, each of which have been officially integrated into the X-Men cannon.
Unsurprisingly, X-Men: Destiny will be packed full of recognisable faces including Surge, Quicksilver, Gambit and Magneto.
Meanwhile X-Genes allow players to modify the powers of their own mutant by collecting the genes of other mutants, and "decision moments" are ripe throughout the game, says OXM.
