We all knew Destiny 2 was coming. After all, it was revealed during the tumultuous Infinity Ward Jason and Vince debacle that Bungie had signed a major contract with Activision that included three games in the series plus expansions. But their tight-lipped stance on bringing Destiny to the desktop has been a bit of a frustrating affair. That, however, changes with the freshly announced sequel.
On May 18 a new gameplay world premier reveal will take place, while PS4, Xbox One AND PC GAMERS can jump into the sequel action from September 8 this year.
In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. The official Destiny 2 reveal trailer, “Rally the Troops,” shows two of the Vanguard, leaders of the Guardians, inspiring the people of the last city in an impassioned (and occasionally sarcastic) call to arms. In Destiny 2 players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.
"The past three years have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for Bungie," said Bungie boss-man, Pete Parsons via press release. "To know that millions of players around the world have forged lasting Destiny memories and even made it their hobby is truly humbling and we can’t wait to continue the journey.” Adding, “We are looking forward to sharing a fresh, inviting story, and with the upcoming Destiny 2 Beta slated for this winter, we are eager to get feedback from millions of players around the world who will get a glimpse of the new adventures that will unfold for all of us. Together, with our partners at Activision, we are thrilled to get Destiny 2 in the hands of players in September".
