destiny screenshotsIt's been a while since we've seen any official promotional content for Bungie's upcoming title Destiny, however Bungie is still quietly working away at the title, and the release date of the game is nearing closer and closer. This week, Bungie released a few new screenshots to show off the game, and these screenshots have captured a few moments that have not yet been shown off to us.

One such screenshot shows a guardian riding a hover-bike type vehicle, which Bungie have named the Shirke bike. Once the game is released, players will have access to these vehicles, and will be able to use them to travel between two destinations quickly.

A couple of the screenshots also picture how the amazing ambient occlusion in the game has been used to give Destiny a very impressive appearance.

At first glance, I mistook the images for concept art, but it's clear to see that the images are in fact screenshots of actual gameplay content, so if you enjoy beautiful looking games, then you really are in for a treat when Destiny finally releases.

However, we will have to wait a little while longer, Bungie like to take their sweet time with their games, and the release date for Destiny has been set for September 9th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

There is also a planned beta for Destiny, however the release date for that has still not been announced, and has been estimated as "early 2014."
