The battle between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants erupts – and your choices determine the fate of the world. Starting today, the game is available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. X-Men Destiny from Marvel Entertainment, LLC and Activision Publishing, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) puts gamers in the shoes of a young mutant who has yet to learn his newfound powers. The choices you make and the covenants you make determine which army of mutants will be victorious. In X-Men Destiny, three brand new mutants play in a new storyline from renowned Marvel author Mike Carey, turning the game into an action-packed RPG adventure where players determine the powers, development and destiny of their mutants.
Players will be introduced to three NEW mutants from Marvel for the first time and will be able to make important decisions of their own. Will they choose the X-Men or the Brotherhood?’ said David Oxford, executive vice president and general manager of Activision Publishing, Inc. “The ability to choose from X-Men Destiny’s multiple possible storylines and one of three brand new characters is sure to bring a new experience to the X-Men universe—and fans will love it.”
“The game features a great story by Mike Carey and a landscape in which players can make important choices that shape their journey. We’re very excited about this combination, and I’m sure Marvel Universe fans feel the same way,” said TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment.
Gamers can battle alongside or against Marvel’s most famous X-Men, including Magneto, Cyclops, Wolverine and Gambit, developing their mutant powers thanks to X-Men Destiny’s upgrade system. This allows them to combine X-Genes and abilities from various X-Men and Brotherhood members, such as Iceman’s icy powers and Emma Frost’s diamond skin.
X-Men Destiny’s three new mutants – Grant Alexander, Aimi Yoshida and Adrian Luca – are brought to life with the voices of some of Hollywood’s most popular young talents: Milo Ventimiglia from the Heroes series, Jamie Chung from Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II and Scott Porter from Friday Night Lights.
X-Men Destiny was developed by Silicon Knights for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Wii and has a PEGI age rating of 16 years and older. The studio Other Ocean developed the Nintendo DS version of the game, which is age-rated 12 and older (for non-real-life violence against human characters).
