If you pre-order the game, you'll also be able to jump into the early beta. Expect to hear more about Destiny 2 during E3 next month. The new enemy in "Destiny 2", named Gaull, believes the Traveler, the enigmatic being that gives Guardians their powers, should have given those powers to he and the Red Legion, his band of followers. A release date for the PC version is still yet to be decided, to ensure the game arrives in a polished state.
Can I just see what Destiny 2 looks like? We knew from Cayde's drinking rant and the official first trailer that the Tower would get destroyed, but we didn't know much beyond the fact that a faction of the Cabal was behind it. The story will be about finding the Guardians on new locations like Nessis, Titan, and IO to reunite them and take back your home.
A brand new system called Guided Games - essentially an in-game "looking for group" feature - will allow Clans to team up with solo players for endgame content.
Based on Blizzard's announcement, Destiny 2 will also have an Expansion Class.
Since the launch of Battle.net in 1996, Blizzard has only ever used its platform to facilitate its own games, from Diablo to World of Warcraft, to Overwatch.
Countdown is a new competitive mode where players spawn on either Offense or Defense, and when the round ends you swap sides and roles. If you haven't chosen a clan yet, you will have the option to match with one.
Fans criticized the first Destiny for its lack of story, but Bungie is promising that Destiny 2's campaign will feature a lot of cutscenes and talking characters. The game publisher also disclosed the video game's release date.
Weapon slots have been adjusted from the Primary, Special, and Heavy classifications to Kinetic, Energy, and Power respectively. "Aside from potentially evaluating needs or opportunities for future Activision games, we don't have any short- or long-term plans to support third-party games with Battle.net". The hour-long presentation focused on the game's multiplayer modes, and most importantly, its brand-new single player campaign.
Destiny 2 will launch on September 8, 2017 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and for PC only on Blizzard's Battle.net for the regular price of $59.99.
