Get Ready to Play with the X-Men Destiny

The battle between the X-Men and Brotherhood of Mutants rages on – and your choices will shape the fate of the world! Available now at retail stores, Marvel Entertainment and Activision Publishing’s X-Men Destiny places gamers into the role of a young mutant just discovering their newfound powers; where the choices they make and alliances they forge determine which side of the mutant cause will reign supreme.

X-Men Destiny gives players three all-new mutants from which to pick, and an original story penned by acclaimed Marvel writer Mike Carey, delivering an action/RPG experience where players have ultimate customization of their mutant’s powers, development and “destiny.”

Fighting alongside and against some of Marvel’s greatest X-Men characters, including Magneto, Cyclops, Wolverine and Gambit, gamers will evolve their mutant skills through X-Men Destiny’s upgrade system, allowing them to mix and match X-Genes and abilities from various X-Men and Brotherhood characters such as Iceman’s freeze powers and Emma Frost’s diamond skin.

X-Men Destiny’s three new mutants – Grant Alexander, Aimi Yoshida and Adrian Luca – are brought to life by the voices of some of young Hollywood’s most popular talent: Heroes icon Milo Ventimiglia, Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II actress Jamie Chung, and Friday Night Lights star Scott Porter.

X-Men Destiny was developed by Silicon Knights for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and Wii. It has been rated “T” (Teen – Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes and Violence) by the ESRB.

Development studio Other Ocean created the Nintendo DS version of the game, which is rated “E10+” (Everyone 10+ – Fantasy Violence and Mild Suggestive Themes) by the ESRB.

The announcement was made Tuesday, Sept. 27.
