Destiny’s mysterious factions explained

Thursday, 14th August 2014 01:25 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Destiny is home to at least three (and possibly five or more) factions – but what the heck are they? And how do you get their stuff?

Playing the Destiny beta (or alpha; hello!) you may have come across the Dead Orbit, Future War Cult and New Monarchy. Each faction has vendors in the Tower, but none of us had the requisites to purchase anything.

What are these groups? What do they want? How do you win their favour? How do you get your sticky paws on that sweet loot?

The latest video from the wonderful DattoDoesDestiny delves into this knotty subject, explaining the basics of how to unlock the vendors and earn faction equipment, as well as dipping into the lore.

Destiny is coming to PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9. I’m ready. I’m ready. I’m ready.
