Today Guardians everywhere rejoiced. It marked the first game play look of Destiny 2. Bungie didn’t disappoint. While they gave us some game play they also gave us a look at more info with the game and other features that will help them carry Destiny to higher places than before.
Story for Destiny 2 (so far):
The earth has been attacked by the brutal Red Legion. They are led by the fearsome Gary (OK Ghaul but let’s be honest no one is going to call him anything but Gary now.) Having found a way to disable the Traveler thereby riding the Guardians of their power. You are tasked to seek out new ways to fight the darkness and bring Light back to the universe. Having been beaten and broken the Vanguard have fled to find answers for themselves.
Destinations of Destiny 2:
At launch the game will feature 4 new planets to discover.
Earth – European Dead Zone
Titan – One of Saturn’s Moons that has no land mass just Golden Age Structures floating on the water.
Nessus – Is Planetoid that was fully consumed by the Vex
IO – A moon of Jupiter which just happens to be the last place the light touched during the Golden Age
Warlock – Dawnblade: Replacing Radiance. It’s Radiance with a mix of hammers. Once activated you are engulfed in flames with wings and a sword. You can bring your fiery wrath and smite them with melee or imbue Sagat from Street Fighter and fling fire at them.
Hunter –Arcstrider: A new spin on the Bladedancer. Instead of a dagger you are given a staff to flash about and instill massive damage while embracing your inner Donatello.
Titan – Sentinel: Replacing the Bubble. You gain a shield that you can hold in front of you to block damage, bash some skulls in, or you can throw it like Captain America (Hail Hydra!)
