Bungie Bringing the Universe of Destiny to Life With Incredible $300 Textbook
Bungie, the company behind the Destiny video game series, is taking its franchise to the next level with the release of their first-ever, limited edition textbook. The Destiny Universe: A Primer 2002-2017 will offer Destiny fans an in-depth look at the lore and characters that make up the world of Destiny.
The book was created and published by Bungie in partnership with Insight Editions and weighs just over five-pounds, making it the largest and most comprehensive tome ever published for the franchise and likely the most expensive, at a cost of $300. Many of the book’s authors have worked directly on the Destiny games, including senior writer Jason Harris, game director Christopher Barrett, and content design lead M.E. Chung.
The Destiny Universe book will cover a variety of areas, from history to characters to the philosophy of the game, and will feature previously unpublished artwork and hundreds of images from the games. The text provides an in-depth look into Destiny’s stories, art, characters, operations, adventures, enemies, and more, featuring exclusive interviews with Bungie developers.
The book will also include a poster, a metal eye plate featuring a Cabal Centurion, and a code to unlock an exclusive in-game item — the Submachine Gun Toolkit. This item is an upgrade to a standard Exotic weapon in the game and will make the weapon more powerful.
With the Destiny Universe: A Primer 2002-2017, Bungie is providing Destiny fans with an unprecedented and in-depth look at a beloved and expansive universe. The book is a must-have for longtime Destiny fans, and a great way for new players to catch up on the game’s story.
