Destiny 2 has a brand new gameplay trailer, and it offers a taste of the modes, worlds and multiplayer features coming to the game. We broke down all the big points here.
Meet the New Villain, GARY!
Chief antagonist and Red Faction leader, Ghaul, reigns supreme as The Guardians are flee the Tower and are ripped of their unique abilites.
A New Weapon Slot: Players will have three slots for Energy, Kinetic and Power weapons. However, new gameplay additions were quickly put on display, which included three special powers.
Destiny developer Bungie today confirmed a bunch of details about the sequel that's now in development, including the fact that it's expanding beyond consoles to launch on PC - exclusively via Blizzard's online platform.
What's more is that Bungie laid out what to expect in terms of a social experience. Nessus, a red vegetation filled Vex stronghold. We will update this story with all of the details once the livestream has wrapped up. Warlocks can unleash Dawnblade and take to their air on fiery wings, hurling Phoenix projectiles at enemies. My personal favorite was Sentinel, an ability that transforms Titans into Captain America (complete with throwable shield) for a few seconds. And Hunters become Arcstrider, wielding an mystical, electric charged staff for quick deadly melee. Destiny 2 seems to expand on that in terms of the parts of the world you get to see.
Crucible: Competitive PvP is now 4v4 across all modes. Bungie will also be hosting an open beta later in the summer so fans can check out the game before release.
Each of these areas will be more fleshed out than Destiny's Patrol maps, with friendly NPCs to give you side-quests called Adventures and direct you to dungeon-like Lost Sectors.
They're going to make Trials, raids, and the Nightfall "available to all players", which they're doing with a brand new system called Guided Games.
"Destiny established a blockbuster, new franchise and a massive global community of amazingly passionate fans".
Public Events - Unique, optional, dynamic combat activities that players can join on the fly as they roam around the world solo or with other players.
Destiny 2 launches September 8 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Fortunately, the company has garnered a lot of trust from PC players. The fact alone that Sony would release another console right after the PlayStation 4 Pro is a little ridiculous, not to mention how Bungie made it abundantly clear that Destiny 2 would run on the same engine at Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
