Destiny 2 has officially been revealed and gamers everywhere tuned into the live-stream yesterday. A whole plethora of information, screenshots, modes, features and a trailer were revealed. The story of Destiny 2 takes place after the first where a new powerful army called ‘The Red Legion’ has unleashed an attack on the last safe city on Earth. Players will create their own character dubbed a ‘Guardian’ and master new skills and traverse new planets to stop ‘The Red Legion’.
During the announcement live-stream, two new features were talked about:
- Guided Games: Solo-players can now find and play with other players to earn new in-game rewards like weapon and armor.
- Countdown: Countdown is an all new competitive mode.
- Inverted Spire: A new three player co-operative map for a new activity.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision stated that:
Destiny 2 has a great story, an iconic new villain, awesome characters you want to go on an epic adventure with, and of course, tons of the amazing gameplay that Destiny is known for. We, along with our partners at Bungie, have listened carefully to our community, and have added thoughtful innovations that make the game, and all of its content, more accessible to more types of players than ever before.
Destiny 2 will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on September 8th, 2017.
