WATCH: New ‘Destiny 2’ Cinematic Trailer Tells A Pretty Epic Backstory

During Bungie’s Destiny 2 livestream reveal event today, the developer dropped a new cinematic trailer designed to help reintroduce us all to the Destiny universe.

The trailer focuses on Commander Zavala — one of the Vanguard leaders from the first game — and his own history as a Guardian, the heroes of Destiny. The whole thing has a very Edge of Tomorrow feel to it as Zavala is resurrected time and again by his Ghost companion and overall, it’s all very beautiful and reinforces Bungie’s commitment to better storytelling with their sequel.

Destiny 2 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on Sept. 8. We’ll have more coverage on the game soon, but in the meantime, check out the livestream event over on YouTube.
