    The fact that our Guardian was holding onto that ship while it was going into hyperdrive was completely badass.

  2. Nikachu_I_choose says:

    I love how the guardians don’t look menacing with this. It’s like they’re playing simple magic tricks, but they’re really decimating the battlefield.

      @BarStool i thought he just wasn’t taking us seriously then realized towards the end that “oops! I need to waste them- too late….”

    • BarStool says:

      @TidalWavesLion That’s sort of the Idea of the fight. We are taunting Rhulk, allowing him to lower his guard, before he realizes what happens. When he does realize, he is then made prone to damage, and thus, he takes a more crouched position to protect himself, and starts to go apeshit. That’s why he jumps around much more often during the dps phase.

      We have just reached that level of power

    • TidalWavesLion says:

      Someone pointed out how Rhulk’s kicks looked like the Cancan and I spawned the idea of Guardians taunting him by playing it during the raid (since he’s not taking us seriously) before he catches on and realizes that it’s too late

    Between the lyrics going “I’m too dang young to give up on the light / I’m used to the darkness” and “Our end begins” , the end slaps

  4. WarriorWorthAThousand says:

    So the song used is “Used to the Darkness” by Des Rocs. Bungie used Go to the Light by Murder by Death for Forsaken which held huge symbolism for the Forsaken DLC as well as the future of Destiny and i believe this song does the same.

    I’ve made mistakes, the Lord struck me down
    Caught in a landslide, lost underground
    I hear them gates, swing open loud
    Come close to midnight, hell fade me down

    And then my eyes got used to the darkness
    And everyone that I knew
    Was lost and so long forgotten after you

    Rhulk and especially Calus the two disciples of the witness both lost everything from Rhulk being betrayed by his family and tossed into the core of his Lubrae and its sun destroyed. And Calus being exiled to the midnight coop by Ghaul and his daugher Ciatal. The two characters then give up all prior attachments to worship the witness. There eyes getting used to the darkness. But does this apply to the Witness himself. The witness main feature is his eyes its what is focused on.

    Sweet smell of roses, have come at last
    One fist of Earth fights, to come join the rest, rest, rest

    What happens at the very end of this trailer red flowers encroach to the surprise of the witness and red flowers are very prominant in destiny with the Black Garden where the red flowers bloom into the past and the present and bloom forever.

    Man, Strand and the hunter rope dart super looks absolutely sick

  6. Kingjay814 says:

    There is so much happening in this trailer. But the Thunder Crash grapple tag along thing was NUTS!! Now I’m exctited to see if we’re gonna see other synergies between classes

  7. Will McKinney says:

    Bungie does not miss with these trailers! Shadow keep, Beyond light, and Witchqueen were all bangers, but this one has somehow got me even more hype! Well done.

    Also Bungie, please please please give us that cloudstrider hoverboard as a sparrow! 🙂

  8. Henkaan says:

    finally some cutscenes where our character actually does stuff, instead of just getting talked to

    • BarStool says:

      @The Glorious King Kronk Not just that, but almost every New Light in the System is there fighting. If you look back when the Harrier was Dive Bombing the Dark Fleet* you can see two Arcadian Jumpers Behind it, being that those are the starter ships, like how the Khvostov is the Starter weapon.

    • Xûr, Agent of the Bedroom says:

      Will they be framelocked at 30fps tho

    • The Glorious King Kronk says:

      This is Calus’s Fleet above Earth, being engaged by the combined forces of the Last City, Eliksni, and Caiatl. It’s possible that they got completely hammered in the fight and had to retreat, with our Guardian clutching onto a ship as it escapes.

  9. PhNx_Tom says:

    1:08 Finally some space cutscenes again. Destiny is beyond amazing when it is in Space like Dreadnaught Cutscene or the Deep Stone Crypt Raid

  10. Psity Guy says:

    The Witness was in like 2 seconds of the trailer but looked so cool. When they open their eyes like they’re shocked. They have to be looking into the traveler right?

    • Vincent Sanabria says:

      He’s definitely not shocked lol

    • Benjamin Salinas says:

      The winnower is the true one behind the darkness. Some believe it to be a force or the darkness in general. But I had a theory that it goes deeper than that. The winnower is the true one behind everything. The witness was made by the winnower in order to do its bidding for taking over soil and finding the final shape as I think that the final shape is the gardener. The thing inside the traveler could be the gardener and when the witness eyes went big and it seemed surprised. It might have found the gardener. And the witness is the puppet and pawn of the winnower which means that the winnower could be looking through the witness eyes. The gardener and winnower were the ones that started the light and the dark and the universe. So what if the witness is a spy for the winnower kinda like how will was a spy for the mind slayer in stranger things. Just a theory.

    • Shisui Uchiha says:

      @Joe Mama the true embodiment of the darkness, or in other words, the winnower is the Thanos of the Destiny universe.

    • Joe Mama says:

      @Benjamin Salinas who’s that?

    • Meme Thief says:

      @Colton H yup
