Bungie's official Destiny website received a significant update tonight, providing three new trailers featuring the game's playable Guardian classes and stunning new screenshots.
Destiny is an online "shared world" first-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world developed by Bungie, the studio behind the hit Halo series. A mysterious orb named the Traveler changes Earth's nearby planets of Mars and Venus and saves mankind from invading alien forces. Now heroes named Guardians, who are bestowed with mystical powers from the Traveler, must protect the last safe city on Earth.
Watch the Guardian videos below with each class's official description available underneath:
The first Titans built the Wall, and bravely gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same place, steadfast and sure. Our enemies are deadly and merciless, but so are you. You hail from a line of legendary heroes and your strength and skill will be needed to shatter their ranks.
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 stand between you and your greatest discovery – the secrets of the Golden Age.
Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. Making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. But you are no outlaw, at least, not anymore, and your unique brand of daring and ingenuity will be needed now more than ever.

On September 9, 2014, Destiny will release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 consoles. Beta access to the game will be available this spring to those who pre-order.
