The Good, the Bad, and the Bungie: Destiny 2 News and Leaks
>> Destiny: The Rise of Iron Review
First let’s get this out for anybody who doesn’t know. About three months ago, Bungie released concept art for possible new subclasses in Destiny 2. Supposedly rejected concept art from a freelance artist who was temporarily hired to create the artwork, so this is not the official artwork but could be possible subclasses we could see in Destiny 2. The image shows us a Hunter with a spear, a Titan with a Shield, and a Warlock with wings and a sword. Since these images were removed so quickly after their initial post, it’s possible that it could be the real deal and they could be the new subclasses. We’ll never really know until a trailer comes out for Destiny 2, so we’ll have to wait and see.
Hunter, Titan and Warlock possible subclass supers.
It’s time for the big news that might piss everybody off. Actually it’s gonna piss everybody off. There will be no character transfer from Destiny to Destiny 2. This was recently released by a Kotaku writer Jason Schreier, who has some inside connections into Bungie. The Devs want Destiny 2 to feel like a completely new game. If this means we will be leaving old characters that we spent 3 years working on then Bungie will do it which honestly is a bad move, because it doesn’t give any players that been here since Year One (like me) any incentive to get Destiny 2. It is possible Bungie will offer veterans of the first Destiny something to commemorate their hard work but who knows for sure (Please God be true.) Although some of these decisions have not been finalized, it’s gonna be hard to say goodbye to the characters we put so much love into, and I love my all my characters. To see them not make it into Destiny 2 is kind of depressing.
Here’s probably news that will make a lot of people happy. Destiny 2 is coming to PC!! If you have a PC and missed out on Destiny well be prepared because the second game is coming to you. Also released by Jason Schreier of Kotaku, the PC port comes as a surprise to Destiny players, as Sony has been getting most of the exclusive content for Destiny. One can only assume the Destiny PC port will come after the initial game for consoles is released. Bungie has not given us any details on a PC port other than that, so PC players better get hyped!
Now I know what you’re asking. “How big will Destiny 2 be compared to the original game?” Well I have that answer. A couple months ago we got some leaked info about how big the game will be by a mysterious user named shinobi602. A person who works within the game industry and has a good history of leaking true info. In Destiny 2 we’ll be getting this new activity called “play-in destinations” which is basically a revamped version how the planets function currently. Supposedly the plan is make the planets feel more populated with towns, outposts and quests that are a lot better than the patrol system we currently have. Now that alone sounds interesting, and also gets you wondering how the devs are gonna do it. This also means you don’t have to be stopped by 10 different menus (exaggeration) and such to go and make decisions. Instead you’ll still be in control of your character making activity decisions without leaving the world to go into Orbit, Destiny’s current activity hub. This is a huge step up in my opinion but it doesn’t stop there. You’re going to be going to Saturn, which supposedly bigger than all the playable areas combined. Now that, is something I’m definitely looking forward to. Imagine exploring Saturn and it’s rings, now that would be effing amazing! It is unclear if old areas from D1 will be reintroduced in D2 more fleshed out, but if that is the case we’ll probably have to fight for it and that is gonna be fun.
Remember this? Yeah let’s never do that again.
