Featured General Destiny 2

  1. The official Destiny twitter page has been updated with images which display Destiny 2. There was a load of Destiny 2 information leaked the other day but we now have official confirmation of the games title. The image used appears to show the city below the traveller on fire which maybe suggests that a huge war has taken place. Hopefully we will see more official information in the next few weeks.

    And here is what the twitter page looks like

    And the video below is a round up of all the rumours which have been flying around over the past few days suspiciously just before an official announcement was made - none of these rumours are solid and may all be fake, we'll just have to wait for more official news to be released.

     
  2. Bungie has dropped the Destiny 2 reveal trailer along with some basic storyline details, retail and digital options, and confirmation of a PC release.


    The video provides a look at the new story in Destiny 2 where the “last safe city on Earth” has fallen and is now occupied by a new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion.

    As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players will need to master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces to reclaim their home.

    The video above, Rally the Troops, shows two of the Vanguard, which are leaders of the Guardians. In Destiny 2, players head off to new destinations around the solar system and while exploring, will find an “expansive amount of activities.”

    Bungie said there will be plenty for solo, cooperative and competitive players to do in game.

    The first hands-on gameplay reveal livestream will be broadcast on May 18.

    Destiny 2 is now available for pre-order in standard, and Collector’s Edition as well as the Digital Deluxe and Limited Edition. Pre-ordering the game nets early access to the beta with dates to be announced.

  3. I fell victim to the Destiny/Bungie hype train last time round. Hate making the same mistake twice. Time will tell though.
     
  4. What I've read so far looks good, will wait and see before ordering though.

    Destiny 2 will follow a similar DLC model to the original, with two expansions due to release in the winter and then the spring after its launch in September this year. All of this is official except the timeline, which supposedly comes from leaked instructions to Gamestop store managers.

    Their instructions to store managers, however, include the following paragraph:

    “The Destiny 2 expansion pass includes reservations for both Expansion I and Expansion II, which will be released in winter 2017 and spring 2018, respectively. The expansions offer brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armour, and gear.”

    It was confirmed last week that Destiny 2 would follow a similar expansion model as the original, when the announcement of the Collectors’ Edition confirmed two expansions. A few days later, the expansion pass was officially listed on the Microsoft store, with icons in its artwork revealing the focus of each expansion: Osiris and Rasputin. These are two major figures in Destiny lore that players of the original have been keen to meet for some time now.

    Expansion I is marked with the eye of Osiris, a rogue Warlock (the most scholarly Guardian class) who questioned the authority of the Speaker, the mysterious figure that represents the Traveller (the big white orb that uplifted humanity and grants Guardians their power). It’s hinted that he has a different view of the Darkness, the cosmic force you’re meant to be fighting, but he’s yet to appear in the game.

    Exciting as it is that we'll get to explore all of this, the content model of the original Destiny was one of its many criticised aspects. All expansion content but for raids was available as soon as they were released, and even hard mode raids were unlocked after a month. Event-based content struggled to fill the gaps, such that a the original game struggled with chronic content droughts.
     
  6. In Destiny 2, players will be able to explore four new lovely environments in the solar system in order to discover new weapons and combat abilities.

    According to Bungie, the four new environments in Destiny 2 are Saturn's moon Titan, Jupiter's moon Io, Earth and Nessus.

    Whether the latter is based on the minor centaur planet 7066 Nessus isn't known, but the images sent over don't depict an icy planet.

    On Earth, the Vanguard have set up camp in the European Dead Zone. Bungie said this the “largest destination yet,” and it features a lush forest, abandoned town, a cave system. Here, the Red Legion has a military base players can explore and contest.

    Titan is where Commander Zavala is regrouping at the hands of Ghaul. There is no land on Titan. Instead, players explore a series of Golden Age platforms surrounded by a rolling ocean.

    Nessus is described as a “strange and unstable planetoid” fully consumed by the Vex. Here is where players will find Cayde-6 caught up in his own adventures in machinery landscape featuring “sheer walls, lush canyons, and creepy Vex caverns.

    Finally, there's Io. This is where Ikora Rey has gone in search of answers after the loss of the Tower, as it's the last known site the Traveler visited during the Golden Age. Sacred to Guardians and Warlocks, it is now occupied by enemies.

    Bungee has also showed off it's first gameplay video. You’ll see gameplay mixed in with some story cinematic detailing the first mission in Destiny 2, Homecoming.

     
  7. Looks a big step up in all areas, still need more info on what is included in the "main game" this time before I consider it though.
     
  8. There was a brand new trailer at Sony's E3 2017 Conference as Bungie and Activision showed off the exclusive Playstation 4 content coming to Destiny 2.

    The exclusive content that Bungie unveiled for PlayStation falls into the normal categories: strike, gear, exotic and a PvP map. Outside of a few names, there is no real information on what any of this content is — however, it will be timed exclusive until at least Fall 2018.

    The exclusive strike will be called “Lake of Shadows,” the exclusive ship will be titled City Apex, the exotic weapon is a sniper titled Borealis and the PvP map will be titled Retribution. All of this combat will be coming to PC and Xbox One at a later date.

     
  9. Destiny 2 is going to have a story you'll actually notice happening around you – and other narratives to explore, too.

    Destiny 2 is going to have a “followable narrative”, addressing one of the most notable criticisms of the original vanilla release. A significant proportion of Destiny players could not tell you what happened in the first game's story without a long think and six or seven wiki pages.

    As such, the “inclusion of a story” is “probably” the biggest change to the formula this time around, Destiny 2 director Luke Smith told GamesRadar.

    “[Destiny 2 is] actually focusing on having a followable narrative, and having a big sort of storyline, epic scenario. Layering the story content in a way we haven't done yet for Destiny,” he said.

    Smith said the main story campaign in Destiny 2 is called the Red War. This is the central storyline we've seen in marketing materials so far, which focus on Ghaul, a leader of the Cabal and Destiny 2's main villain.

    Giving you a single villain to battle against is an effective narrative device in gaming, and it's one Bungie has already had a go at in The Taken King, Destiny's 2015 expansion. Smith as one of the leaders of this team, which then moved onto Destiny 2 – which may be why 2016 expansion Rise of Iron dropped the ball a bit in that regard.

    “In Taken King it's certainly something myself and the team tried to bring in and improve. We've got the space in Destiny 2 to let that breathe a little,” he added.

    Smith hopes Bungie's attempts at a “cohesive campaign” will help attract new Guardians to Destiny 2, but fans of the science fiction setting will be pleased to learn there'll be other story content, too.

    “That main campaign, that's what the trailers are about. Then, below that in the layering, you have adventures that are stories about the worlds, the planets and the particular enemies contained therein – it doesn't directly relate to the Red War, it tells a different story, Smith said.
