Are you getting excited about the upcoming launch of space-shooter Destiny 2? If the impactful shared-world experience doesn't grab you and the themed PS4 Pro bundle is out of your reach, this new trailer might help ratchet up your anticipation. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts of Kong: Skull Island fame, the Destiny 2 live-action trailer has robot Nathan Fillion exhorting three new recruits to find the big guns and take back the Earth from "a psycho rhino named Ghaul."

While the amazing battle scenes and Fillon's charmingly funny voiceover won't be in the game, this is a fantastic short film that hits all the right exciting notes. The slow motion leaps with flaming swords, the massive alien monsters chasing our heroes down a narrow hallway and (yes) the use of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" all contribute to the feels. Here's hoping the humor from this trailer ends up in the game, too. So, when the game comes out September 6th on consoles and October 24th on PC, you can do it "for the puppies!"
