Xbox projected Destiny 2: Beyond Light via Xbox Series X from a mountaintop to create the largest projected video game display in the world.

To break this massive world record took careful planning. It involved taking out plenty of high-tech equipment into the elements of the snowy top of Copper Mountain in Colorado.

This equipment includes three incredibly powerful projectors to pump out a grand total of 120,000 lumens of light!

In the end the projected game display spread 180.15 feet wide, and 105.97 feet tall for a total projected area of 19,090 square feet of screen.

All of this was done at an incredibly high altitude as well, certainly making room for some other unique firsts projecting from such a high place.

While we're sure the event wasn't done only to promote Destiny 2 The Dawning 2020, the game's Winter event, Xbox released the news and footage of this world record the same day of the event's premiere!
