Is it me or does deals sounds so much better when the word “free” is attached to them. It just so happens things are about to sound a whole lot better. As a part of Bungie Day, today’s “loot” of the day is the free release of Destiny’s first track Awakening, which was first heard by the attendees of E3 this year.
The brand new music from Marty O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori is set seven hundred years into the future in a post-apocalyptic environment following a prosperous period of exploration, peace and technological advancement known as the Golden Age. The instrumental piece almost has a Halo sound to it, which is probably intentional since Destiny was first referenced in Halo 3: ODST, in which a sign on a wall read “Destiny Awaits” and showed a picture of Earth with a mysterious orb floating nearby.
Destiny will be released on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2014 but you can check out the Awakening track now.
