Destiny, the new game from Halo creator Bungie, has its first official concept artwork, after the studio came back onto the radar following leaked plot details found in an advertising document acquired by IGN.

In addition to posting the image seen above on Bungie.net, Bungie wrote: "Go ahead. Take a peek. It's alright. We weren't quite ready, but we will be soon, and we can't wait to finally show you what we've really been up to.

"Stick around, we haven't even started yet."

Prior the artwork reveal, a leaked advertising document published by IGN revealed all kinds of information.

"Our story begins seven hundred years from now in the Last City on Earth, in a Solar System littered with the ruins of man's Golden Age," explains the document. "A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it's here for, but only that it's our protector.

"Meanwhile, strange, alien monsters creep in from the edge of the universe, determined to take Earth and the Last City. We are young 'knights' tasked with defending the remains of humanity, discovering the source of these monsters and - eventually - overcoming it."

The massive alien ship referred to is called "the Traveler".

The document also includes the Destiny logo placed alongside PS3 and Xbox 360 logos, plus there's the mention of Destiny.com - currently password protected. All this points to Destiny being the actual name of the game.

And I was so looking forward to beach ball wars.

Some points to note from the screenshot:

These are obviously aliens. The humanoid on the right has 4 eyes, and the second from the left is being attacked by a giant beach ball (man-made, therefore we can also assume these guys are enemies because they're under attack by humans).

The cannon is mounted on what looks to be a biological transport, hard to say if it has just one foreleg or is a quadruped, I'd guess quadruped due to its mass.

Note that the \0/ logo bottom right of the screenshot seems to be repeated on the alien's shoulderpad, indicating that these guys have a prominent role in the game.

Classes are evident - Sniper on the back of the transport, Soldier on the right with a rifle, possible Melee class (second from left has a saw blade underneath her weapon's barrel) and healer (far left, completely ignoring the guy under attack right next to him, so obviously a support-type class).

The heiroglyph on the side of the transport reads "Sponsored by Specsavers", obviously an evil corporation with the foresight to side with an invading force consisting of four-eyed beasties.

Top left - those aren't snow clouds, therefore one can assume we're witnessing a scene of nuclear winter or equivalent disaster (global warming/explosion in a pillow factory).

Taking all this evidence into account we can categorically conclude that we know absolutely squat until Bungie spills the beans.
