Earlier in the week, our friends over at Bungie launched a viral marketing website for their upcoming sci-fi epic, Destiny, and at the top of the site listen seven days; hinting that on February 18th, a major reveal will happen for the next-gen franchise.
Bungie said, in a community video blog, that they are preparing to show Destiny “soon” and with the launch of the viral site alphalupi.bungie.net Monday, even more teasers confirmed the time.
Welcome to the official Destiny Facebook page. Official Destiny news is coming soon!
You can be the first to see the reveal of Destiny right here on Feb. 17 (T-Minus 5 days).
The timing is odd considering that it is months before E3, but only days before Sony’s mysterious February 20th New York PlayStation even. With previous reports and leaked court documents indicating that the first installment(s) of Destiny may be only coming to the Xbox 360 and its unannounced successor, is it possible that Sony and Activision worked out a deal to get the game on PS4 as well?
The image below (top) is from the viral site today after passing the first puzzle – “Begin by aligning the day’s pattern to the light.” Honestly, it was just random clicking until we found the right combination. The more users online the more clear the image on the left and the more dots on the image on the right. With the date officially out there, it seems the site has made itself obsolete, but here’s an interesting reveal (bottom image) from Monday as well:
Clicking the instructions below the second image on the site, takes users to a page with the following test:
Our sky is filled with unseen signals. Radio-frequency emissions pulse and flit and dance all around us. Yet even a singing patch of sky can be observed, and transformed into a range of frequencies.
Can you hear it? No, not yet. It has not yet arrived. But together we can receive its call.
Imagine combining the observations of thousands across the globe on an object meandering through the heavens. The resulting array would be quite large. Quite powerful. This is your task.
Alone it will not be enough. Coordination and timing is needed. Observations must be made simultaneously.
Your window will be small. Five minutes at most. But windows may be reopened. And the distance between observer pairs will be key.
There will always be limitations in clarity, so the results must be archived for study. Highly technical observers may be required. Detailed frequency analysis is recommended.
Everything that belongs to us will be ours, but only if we create the capacity to receive it.
Think not of locations, but the spacings between, as seen from each target. While one hemisphere provides a strong center, the other must heed the call in order to bring light to the unknown.
