Destiny is world that pulls you in with so many amazing things to do. The world has grown in time and in one way or another pulled you in. But Destiny has proven it will dominate once again and draw even more to a whole new world. And to quote Luke Smith: “It’s a world I want to be in.”
There are more exotic weapons to earn, more gaming sessions to partake in, and more strikes and raids to explore. Bungie also mentioned three new weapon slots; Dawnblade which allows you to hover over enemies and unleash pyro-like attacks. The Sentinel which is one who yields a shield so powerful Captain America would retire twice. Then there is the Arcstriker who holds a staff and performs some devastating combos. But wait, there’s much more.
The Homecoming trailer presented a world needing to be defended, and immediately after the clip I was ready to jump in; and graciously this is where the gameplay footage stepped in, giving us all a taste of Destiny once more. It is revealed how Ikora, Zavala, Cayde-6; even you have lost everything. Ghaul of the Red Legion destroys everything leaving us to reclaim and rebuild from scraps. As a Titan, Warlock or Hunter, there’s a new experience for everyone.
The gameplay was magnificent! A more involved story in what definitely appears to be a more jaw-dropping experience than the original Destiny. Destiny 2 is more than a game, it’s an investment!
The story is called the Red World Campaign, Strikes are back and Crucible returns for PVP players, now allowing 4v4 sessions. Attack/Defend mode announced, “Countdown,” details to come later; as well as the new Raids.
Tired of flying back to orbit to attempt new activities, perfect! There is a new way to get around without doing so, simply select the orbit you choose and you will fast travel. You can also look forward to new maps to help you get around, find lost sectors and earn new treasures within the new worlds; Earth, IO, Titan and Nessus. EDZ is the new home base where the faction where the community meets up and places their flag in hopes to rebuild.
Multiplayer has become more involved announcing Clans allowing players to build custom teams with custom banners and more. In addition to joining clans, even if you don’t play much but are in a clan, you will earn the same unlocks and rewards as the players in your team that earned them.
Guided Games will make sure you find the right Clan that fits your needs and finds the right community that fits your preference, along with the potential growth of friends and gameplay. Find the experience you want!
Blizzard has also officially announced that Battle Net will be the exclusive home for Destiny 2 for PC platform. That’s huge as gamers have had the greatest experience to date with one of the highest online played games, Overwatch. It gives gamers that early concept of the online sessions to expect; greatness.
Remember, pre-ordering Destiny 2 will allow you to play the multiplayer beta. It’s an amazing experience that you will truly love to explore. There’s so much more content and it’s places you in the middle of it!
