One of the most highly anticipated sequels of the year, Destiny 2 is out today on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For a series first it’s also coming to PC via Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher, but not until October 24. You can watch the recently released live action trailer above.

“Destiny is designed to bring players together, and we are humbled to be part of the communities who breathe life into our worlds,” said Pete Parsons, Bungie CEO. “For us, it’s all about the stories, memories, and friendships that are made when people come together.”  He added, “Destiny 2 represents the spirit, passion, and energy of an incredible team of world builders here at Bungie, and its launch is the culmination of years of partnership with Activision to bring this game to millions of players all around the world.”

Destiny 2 is developed by original Halo creators Bungie and published by Activision Blizzard. The story opens with an invasion and attack on the last city on Earth, the is Traveler captured, and the Guardians left in diaspora. But mostly it’s about joining with friends on missions to defeat bad guys and acquire loot.

“A great story. Awesome characters. A menacing villain. A clear mission. A gorgeous, expansive world to explore. And of course, great, innovative gameplay that is fun to play solo or with friends. Destiny 2 has it all,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “Whether you’re one of the millions of fans who are already a part of this community, or you are brand-new to the Destiny world, this game is something all different kinds of fans will enjoy and appreciate. We can’t wait to share it with you.”

The first end-game 6-player raid is set to go live on September 13. Destiny 2 will also feature a new system to help foster a growing community called Guided Games. Guided Games will help players find the right groups to tackle Destiny 2’s many activities.

Destiny 2 has been rated T for Teen. It’s available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s coming to PC October 24.
