  • game will take place during a time of high anti-mutant sentiments and hate crimes against them
  • X-Men have recently suffered a devastating loss
  • players will control the child of a “human zealot” who hates mutants, have a choice between three different characters to play as
  • players can modify the powers of their mutant by collecting genes of other mutants


GameStop lists X-Men Destiny for PS3, Xbox 360, DS and Wii – along with product description

In the action-RPG X-Men Destiny, you control the fate of a new mutant in the X-Men universe. Every choice has a consequence, as your destiny is determined through the decisions you make as you advance through the game. Play as one of three new characters in X-Men lore, each one of whom must come to terms with his or her unique background and powerful mutant identity while uncovering the truth behind an epic event that threatens to tear apart the tenuous peace between humanity and mutant kind. Evolve and customize your core mutant powers with an opportunity to earn and equip “X-genes” to expand and alter your power base. Choose which path to take in key moments that impact your story and how other characters respond to you. Fight alongside and against famous mutants from the X-Men comics, including Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost and more. Will you choose to follow the teachings of the X-Men to unite mutants and humans, or will you usher in a new age of mutant domination with Magneto’s Brotherhood? YOU decide.

Choose from three different characters to play, all with unique history and personalities
Define and evolve your own X-Men mutant through choice and customization
Align with either the X-Men or the Brotherhood of mutants
Select, expand and enhance your powers as you customize your abilities and earn upgrades
Your decisions shape the story and change the world around you

Some destinies are chosen. Your destiny is yours to define

Not a confirmation of the which platforms it will really come out on, but more often than not these listings turn out to be true.
