Xbox Broke a World Record By Making Destiny Playable on the Side of a Mountain


Xbox and Bungie teamed up with professional snowboarder Grant Giller to break the Guinness World Record title for the Largest Projected Game Display.Inspired by the icy slopes and craters of Europa in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Xbox projected Beyond Light onto a 180 x 105-foot-wide screen on the side of a mountain in Colorado. An Xbox Series X was used by Giller to play Beyond Light on the skyline of a 10-mile mountain range in the state at an elevation of over 11,000 feet, making it one of the highest elevation video game projects ever produced, according to Xbox.

“Despite the extreme cold conditions, all the necessary equipment used to make this world record possible upheld throughout scattered snowstorms during shooting, experiencing zero system failures,” an Xbox news release reads. “The mountain also provided a fiber internet connection strong enough for the Xbox Series X, allowing for perfect gaming, without visual or game play delays.”

This mountainside gameplay session took place after Giller spent his day snowboarding on Colorado’s Copper Mountain with a custom Destiny 2 x Xbox snowboard and matching sweater, as you can see below.

Giller was able to play Beyond Light with a 60 fps frame rate and 4K resolution (although the dimensions of a mountain-sized screen might have changed how that worked) thanks to the game’s recent next-gen update, which is now available on Xbox Series X, Series S, and PlayStation 5.You can read our thoughts on the latest Destiny 2 expansion in our Destiny 2: Beyond Light review.
