Developer Bungie recently launched its final “Destiny” trailer before the release of the upcoming first-person shooter next month. The game will hit shelves for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles on Sept. 9.

The trailer, which runs 2 minutes and 30 seconds, opens with a shot of the Tower, the game’s social center. It then shows some footage from the title’s beta, which ran last month and closed on July 27.

"The Beta has been eye-opening so far," Bungie said last month on its blog. "We’ve watched the world of Destiny come to life. Guardians from every platform have arrived at the Tower from their battles in the wild. We have watched your adventures with great interest and listened to your feedback. Your missions have provided us with volumes of discoveries we can use to prepare for the launch of Destiny in September."

The developer assured fans it is actively listening to player feedback for the multiplayer game. Bungie also noted that to deliver the best game possible, it wanted to reach a high number of players during its beta phase.

"Our work is not done. There is more we can learn. To make this happen, we need more Guardians to play. This is, above all else, a test. Help us deliver the game you deserve. Before we shut this party down, we’ll welcome everyone who wants a preview of this brave new world.”

After the beta closed, the Bellevue, Washington, company revealed more than 4.6 million players participated in the early phase, with 853,235 concurrent players and 6.5 million guardians created. An impressive 88,384,720 games were played and more than 777,000 players used the game’s companion app.

The “Destiny” alpha ran June 12-16 -- and Bungie reported more than 6 million games were played during the test.
