Yesterday, Bungie held a conference which was live streamed worldwide and in case you missed it you can go and check them out on YouTube and watch the stream again OR if you don’t want to waste hours of watching instead prefer reading in short about what all was revealed then keep reading below as we cover what was the major announcement made by Bungie during the live stream.
Bungie made an announcement that Destiny 2’s Year 2 will bring a lot of changes including some major changes like a new raid which is named Dreaming City, a new Gambit mode that will be combining PvE with PvP in a very interesting way so that gamers can enjoy the whole experience of the game easily and also new super abilities, randomized weapons rolls, and mods in the style of the first Destiny game and also a brand-new weapon class will be added in the game which was revelated to be Bows.
The Expansion is named as Forsaken, which will be kicking the Year 2 from September 4, that will take place on “The Reef: as it was rumored previously and will also feature a “Western revenge vibe”, which is built around a major breakout from the Prison of Elders.
“Baron Hunts” is a mission in which the flood of bad guys will be overrunning the Tangled Shore, a new location on The Reef headed by the barons and players will have to defeat bosses with different powers and abilities to win.
About the new game mode, “Gambit”, it is a 4 on 4 “Hybrid” mode where two teams will battle enemies in separate arenas, while collecting banking motes from the fallen foes. The players will have to collect 75 of them and then they can be banked so that a Primeval can be summoned on the enemy side who will work as a blocker blocking the access to the bank until its completely destroying, not only that but players can also invade the enemy team and kill them to take their motes.
As Destiny 2 was losing players, Bungie decided to addDestiny 1 style random rolls and mods so that players can get a reason for staying with the game. "We want Forsaken to feel like a game that never ends," Bungie's Eric Osborne said during the stream.
Likewise, Forsaken channels Destiny 1's weapon system in new, free-form load outs allowing players to equip any weapon type in any slot, and in seemingly any combination.
"Three shotguns" was the example given on stream, which is a far cry from the current double primary system.
Destiny 2: Forsaken will be sold for $40, or $70 bundled with its own three-part "annual pass." The first part of that pass, Black Armor, is set for winter of this year, which will be followed by the Joker'sWild in spring 2019 and Penumbra the following summer. A Digital Deluxe-edition, with "premium digital content," will also be available for$80.
There are still a lot of questions which are yet to be answered and it might be answered soon but for now, all we can hope is forDestiny 2 to improve more and more so, that players would stick with it for a long time. Also, some screen was released during the stream which you can watch below.
