Explore Destiny's early fantasy, sci-fi, and space western art

Game Informer is gearing up for some Destiny content reveals, the first of which is a six-minute video journey through the sci-fantasy shooter's art direction.

The clip also features an extended Thundarr the Barbarian segment, so there's that.

Art director Christopher Barrett says that for a while, Bungie wasn't sure if it had a fantasy, a space western, or hard sci-fi on its hands, and the early art reflects a lot of that "fun exploration." Most of the ideas ultimately ended up in the game, too, as Barrett says that Bungie was able to create a sort of "historical or aged look with sci-fi that felt new."
