There are three things Bungie focused on for "Destiny 2": a world that pulls you in (having a story you can relate to, having characters you want to hang out with, and enemies you want to face); incredible things to do, no matter your mood, for both solo players and people who like multiplayer, including 4v4 multiplayer; and cooperative experiences (public events, strikes, and raids).
Destiny 2 will launch on September 8, 2017 at PS4, XboxOne and PC. Odds are not good at the beginning of Destiny 2, as players lose everything they've built in the first game, including their supers and vaults.
Broken up by cutscenes that put a greater focus on characters new and familiar, the second half of the demo takes place on a Red Legion dropship where the player takes on a powerful boss called Brann The Urgent Blade.
Ahead of announcement, Bungie revealed what would and wouldn't transfer over from the original Destiny to the sequel, even addressing fans concerns about the specifics of what would carry over to Destiny 2. The title will have new worlds to explore and new loot to find, sure, but it also has a rather innovative idea about how to ensure all players can experience all that co-op content.
Which is a neat way to explain in the story why everyone's powers and equipment will be reset to zero from the first game, with all players starting the new game completely from scratch. Of course, there will be new Strikes, Raids, and Crucible options for you to complete. However, it will downsize the number of players per match from 6v6 to just 4v4. During the event, Bungie stated that "everyone will be able to play it before it comes out", and ensured access to all pre-order players, regardless of platform. Now anyone can join a Clan for either that one mission or become a member for as long or as short as they like. Destiny 2 will be available on PC exclusively via Battle.net.
Stay tuned to IGN and our Destiny-centric show Fire Team Chat, for more ahead of Destiny 2's release. This happens to be the first Destiny game that's going to be released for PC as well. In fact, we can't remember a game that had this much hype behind it.
