Epic shootouts across the solar system abound in Destiny, the latest creation from the team behind legendary Xbox franchise Halo.

A first-person shooter set across multiple planets but with an emphasis on online connectivity and role-playing elements, Destiny is set to be the next multi-million pound mega-franchise, put together by the developers of Halo.

Unlike Master Chief’s adventures, Destiny is available on PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Set far in the future, the game follows on from the fall of humanity’s golden age, and sees the solar system filled with deadly enemies.

As a guardian of the last safe city on Earth, the task is to defend your home, defeat your foes and reclaim what mankind has lost.

Breaking free from the confines of traditional single-player, Destiny allows players to explore vast open-worlds including the Moon, Mars, Venus and Earth, picking up optional missions and exploring vast open spaces.

Naturally, a full-fledged online mode promises the same thrills and spills as Halo, on a much bigger scale.

Destiny, £49.99, is out today.
