Destiny is a game that’s rich and detailed in many ways, but it doesn’t have the most accessible lore we’ve see in gaming.
If you’ve put hours of your life into Destiny and you want to know just a little bit more then you’re in luck, as Bungee has announced the release of the Destiny Grimoire Anthology and it looks absolutely amazing.
The 128-page hardback book is now available to pre-order from the Bungie online store, and it costs a pretty reasonable $24.99.
The description says: “Bungie presents the Destiny Grimoire Anthology, a must-have collectible lore compendium designed and assembled for Destiny’s devoted and enlightened scholars and lore lovers, as well as fans of fantasy and science fiction storytelling.
“Until now, the myths, mysteries, and machinations of the Destiny universe were found hidden throughout the worlds – enticing threads that hinted at a greater tapestry. The Destiny Grimoire Anthology weaves tales from multiple sources together for the first time, casting new light on Destiny’s most legendary heroes, infamous villains, and their greatest moments of triumph and tragedy.
“Each unique volume intends to illuminate a facet of the world, and the complete anthology will confirm and challenge players’ thoughts and assumptions on what it means to be a Guardian, offering new and differing perspectives on the cosmic war that rages between the Traveler and its ancient enemies.”
Yep, so not only are we getting a book, we’re getting a whole shelf of them, starting with this one which is called Dark Mirror.
There’s no word on when the rest of the book collection will release yet, but the first volume has a listed release date of Fall 2018.
If you pre-order from the site, your book will also include a code for an exclusive in-game Destiny 2 emblem “Codex Doctrinae,” which you’ll be able to download when book releases.
