Talk about a new way to get hyped. With Destiny just a week away, Bungie today launched Planet View, a tool that essentially allows us to explore in-game environments like we would using Google Earth. Only, Planet View takes us as far away as the Moon, Mars and Venus.
The Planet View exploration tool was actually built on Google Technologies, so if you've used anything like Google Maps or Earth before, then the Destiny version should feel rather familiar. Of course, the content you can currently explore is just a "small slice" of what's found in the full game.
Here's a handy instructional trailer of sorts, and remember to reserve your copy of Destiny before it's out September 9. Pretty sure the Ghost Edition is sold out at this point in most locations, but pre-ordering any version does net you early access to add-on content.
