Here's the official synopsis:

From the creators of Halo and the publisher of Call of Duty comes Destiny. With an unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, Destiny promises to deliver an incredible story set within a newly-imagined, always-connected universe filled with action and adventure.  Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned the solar system...but it didn't last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore our old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes. In Destiny, you are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Defend the City. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost.

Destiny launches on September 9th, 2014 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles.  

Are you amped for its imminent arrival?
