Destiny developer Bungie has updated the shooter’s official website with a slew of new information regarding three game classes – Hunter, Warlock and Titan – and the universe at large.

The site update takes the form of a slideshow that takes you through many different plot elements and faction profiles.

On Warlocks the site reads, “Warlocks have long studied the Traveler, mastering some of its arcane energies. Its true purpose still remains a great mystery, but discovering truth has always driven you into the unknown. Now, our enemies are the only thing that stands between you and the lost wonders of our Golden Age.”

The Titans sound particularly tough, “The first Titans built the Wall, and gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same high place, steadfast and sure, protecting all who shelter in your shadow. You hail from a long line of heroes, forged from strength and sacrifice. Our enemies may be deadly and merciless, but so are you.”

Hunters on the other hand sound like roaming wanderers, and seem adept at living off the land, “Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You’re no outlaw—at least, not anymore—but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. Your unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever.”

While the page lists details of Earth’s locations – such as the last human city – there are also pages that discuss the Moon, Venus and Mars, although the last two will be revealed soon. We’ve got pieces of Moon concept art below.

There’s even details of Destiny’s enemies, including the The Fallen, which are described as, “A scourge, tirelessly engaged in war against us and scavenging all that remains. They say their Houses have claimed every planet and moon we ever touched. If you see one in the wild, know there are many more nearby, and don’t hesitate to send their souls screaming into the black.”

The Cabal seem to be native to Mars, “It’s been years since they first made their presence known at the Twilight Gap. While early reports have them centered on or around Mars, the true might of the Cabal is still wrapped in speculation. Awaiting more reports from the Vanguard.”

We’ll have more once the ‘Vanguard’ updates the Destiny site.

What do you think of Destiny so far? Let us know below.

Destiny is heading to PS3, PS4 and Xbox, and may even get announced for other format soon. We’ll see.
