With only a few days to go until the launch of Destiny, Activision has teamed up with You Tuber Alan Ismail aka ‘MoreConsole’ in a bid to stage the moment The Traveler arrived above Earth, for real.
Ismail launched a weather balloon into near space this week and the last image was captured in the outer atmosphere, via a high-altitude weather balloon at 107,841 thousand-feet above Earth.
The idea was inspired by some of the game’s artwork, which shows The Traveler arriving above Earth.
“What better way to celebrate the Traveler, which plays a crucial role in the story of Destiny, than by bringing one of the most iconic images of the entire campaign to life? I’m excited to have created something unique that celebrates the scale and vision of the game. I imagine seeing the Traveler actually hovering over Earth will get lots of gamers in the mood to finally start playing for real when the game goes on sale next Tuesday,” commented Ismail.
Here's the video.
