Destiny 2 Live Action Trailer Is All Kinds Of Awesome

(Largely because, as someone who ploughed north of 2,000 hours into the original, I was there to witness the time they made us reacquire and relevel every single frigging exotic weapon in the game). These include outlines of you and your friends' Guardians, alongside your names, fighting through some of Destiny and its expansions' tougher challenges. The game's story is a stark contrast to the hero epic and all around bombast that the first game delivered, and to be fair it seems to be much better for it.

There are still lots of little annoyances to complain about, and I have no doubt that I'll find more over time.

Destiny 2 servers went live today and so far there's been few, if any, issues with connectivity or dropouts. Without this, you clearly can't be a Destiny 2 fan.

"You have lost connection to the Destiny 2 servers". Making players go outside the game to look at Grimoire cards wasn't efficient and at times felt like a chore.

Finally, one of Destiny 2's latest additions for multiplayer matchmaking, Guided Games, will be delayed until after launch. On the heels of celebrating the biggest Beta in Bungie and Activision Publishing history, and after receiving almost 70 global awards and nominations to date, including industry behemoths "Best Multiplayer Game and Best Social/Online Game from gamescom award 2017", and "Best PC Game - Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2017", the stage is set for Destiny 2, the sequel to the internationally acclaimed Destiny, to be one of the biggest launches of the year. From to the, I don't quite trust Bungie not to slip some bonkers decisions into its otherwise brilliant shared-world shooter soup. Bungie chose to do a rolling global launch, which means that while the United States won't be able to play for several hours still, people in places like New Zealand, Australia, and Japan are already diving in headfirst.

Those who've been spurned by Destiny only to be won over by rich DLC will feel right at home in Destiny 2. Unless you own a Playstation 4 Pro or are planning on going in for the new Xbox One X. Each class has their own use in the game and advantages and disadvantages and we all can not wait to experience it all over again, three times to be precise. The core gunplay is certain to be as moreish and robust as ever, but Destiny veterans will have to get to grips with a ton of new features. It's the closest Destiny has ever got to Counter-Strike, as teams work to set bombs or prevent and defuse them. Gunplay changes that were supposed to occur in the PC port, like no recoil weren't present in the Beta (Not that it's really needed with a KB&M). In the story of Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new army.

There is, however, the main path of the story driving you forward and, much as Bungie did with Halo 2, they're trying to do more to, for want of a better term, humanise the Cabal and Dominus Ghaul.
