The last time we wrote about X-Men: Destiny
, we had news that players could choose from at least one of three new mutant characters and customize their powers before proceeding with the game's story, which is written by X-Men Legacy's Mike Carey
and takes place in a world where Professor X is deceased, causing society to rev up its hatred for mutants. Sounds pretty good, huh? Well, some concept art (not the final product, thankfully) culled from the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine
feature what we can only assume is one of those three new characters, and unless you've always wanted to play X-Men: Tool Academy
, they don't look so hot.
The concept images of the unnamed character were ported to the internet thanks to a helpful YouTube user
whose video has since been taken down, but he may have described this new mutant better than we could: "New mutant power: put rubbish tribal tattoos on your arms and dress like a cowboy-pizzaman."
Developed by Silicon Knights and also featuring hipster Nightcrawler and Cyclops, Quicksilver, Surge, Magneto, Wolverine and Gambit, X-Men: Destiny
is expected to go on sale later this year. Check below for the concepts.
