Bungie’s most recent project, Destiny 2, debuted a few days ago on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. To celebrate, the game’s developer and distributor teamed up with Xbox to hold a very special event with which it broke a world record.
On the occasion of the arrival of Destiny 2 to the new generation of consoles as well as the new version of the game, Beyond Light, Bungie, Xbox, and snowboard expert Grant Giller teamed up to enhance the gaming experience thanks to the power of the Xbox X series.
Taking advantage of the icy theme that Beyond Light has, which is inspired by the moon Europa of Jupiter, this interesting project took the athlete Giller to Copper Mountain in Colorado, at more than 11,000 feet high (more than 3.35 km) to carry out a Destiny 2 game session on Xbox Series X, which became one of the video game projects to ever take place in the highest places.
DESTINY 2 GAME SESSION BROKE A WORLD RECORD
But the most surprising achievement is that the session was even more particular, since it was not played on an ordinary television or monitor, but the gameplay was projected on one of the faces of a mountain in that icy region. As a consequence, this event broke the Guinness World Record for the largest screen used to project video games.
The resulting screen had a length of 180 feet and a height of 105 feet, which translates to a dimension of 54 × 32 meters. The projection, of course, had a 4K resolution, thanks to the capabilities of the Xbox Series X.
To achieve the feat, 3 projectors were used, which projected a beam of 120,000 lumen, which is the unit of measurement for light power. Likewise, fiber optic Internet was used to avoid delay problems and, despite the extreme cold conditions, there were no problems at the event thanks to the use of suitable equipment for the event.
We leave you with a video that Xbox shared.

Since we are talking about Destiny, we inform you that although this proposal has turned out to be very successful for Bungie, the company could already be thinking about new franchises.
Destiny 2 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PC, and Google STADIA.
