Bungie Celebrates Destiny Launch With A Visit From A Fallen Ship

You may only know them as the first Destiny enemies we were introduced to, but The Fallen are much more than early game scrubs. These multi-armed menaces are space pirates and mercenaries that have taken root on the Earth and Moon. You (and your guns) will become quite familiar with them in the coming days.

Unfortunately for Bungie, it looks like the invasion has begun in Bellevue, Washington. A Fallen skif has landed outside the studio, and well… let’s just hope that the Destiny launch is automated.

The picture above was taken by Microsoft Xbox Live operations architect Eric Neustadter. We assume he was just stopping by to say "halo" before the big launch.
