Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Bungie Provides New Details On Destiny's Character Classes, Game Universe
Posted on Friday, May 10 @ 08:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
New details on Bungie's "shared-world shooter" have emerged, shedding additional light on the game's three different character classes as well as the sprawling universe that is just begging to be explored.
As previously revealed, there are a total of three different classes: Warlock, Hunter, and Titan. If you want to start thinking about which you should to choose, check out the detailed descriptions below.
Warlock - "Warlocks have long studied the Traveler, mastering some of its arcane energies. Its true purpose still remains a great mystery, but discovering truth has always driven you into the unknown. Now, our enemies are the only thing that stands between you and the lost wonders of our Golden Age."
Hunter - "Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You're no outlaw—at least, not anymore—but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. Your unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever."
Titan - "The first Titans built the Wall, and gave their lives to defend it. Now, you stand in the same high place, steadfast and sure, protecting all who shelter in your shadow. You hail from a long line of heroes, forged from strength and sacrifice. Our enemies may be deadly and merciless, but so are you."
In addition, two of the game's many planets are described. As of right now, we know that players will get the chance to explore "Abandoned Earth," the Moon, Mars, and Venus. For all the juicy details, be sure to check out Bungie's official site.
