Silicon Knights is working on a new X-Men game, one that will be released for consoles at the end of September this year. X-Men Destiny will offer a non-linear storyline and allow the players to choose their allegiances and powers, which will affect the ultimate fate of their character.

Speaking of characters, the game will have three playable ones. First off is Grant Alexander, an American college student and football player who was indifferent to the human / mutant conflict until he awakened his own powers. The second is Aimi Yoshida, a Japanese teenager whose parents sent her to San Francisco to save her from incarceration in a mutant camp. Finally, there’s Adrian Luca, a member of the Purifiers (an anti-mutant organization) who was trained to hate mutants before discovering that he is one himself.

X-Men fans might be disappointed to not be able to play their favorite characters from the franchise. However, lots of them will make an appearance in the game (even though they won’t be playable), and you will also be able to equip some of their powers using the X-gene system.
