Last week, Bungie and Activision hosted an event in Los Angeles, unveiling to hundreds of fans being there and other millions of people watching at home online, Destiny 2 Gameplay premiere.
In a few words, the Crucible popular mode from the original game will be a 4v4 for every mode, in addition, Trials, Raids, and Nightfall will be also available. The biggest addition to the game is an actual story.
Some of the game features of Destiny 2:
The first gameplay reveals viewers were treated to was a look at Destiny 2’s opening story mission from the campaign, which looks cinematic and inspiring. The scene opens on the initial level ‘Homecoming’ where your Guardian responds to an emergency in the Last Safe City, and to help set the stage, here’s what you need to know going into the campaign:
“Humanity has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Lord Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped Guardians of their power and forced the survivors to flee their home. Players will venture out into our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, they must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.”
Strikes are cooperative modes in Destiny optimized for a fireteam of three players as they battle their way through multiple enemies. Strikes will be returning in Destiny 2, and players at the gameplay reveal were treated to a look at one entitled “The Inverted Spire,” which takes place in the new world of Nessus. The enemy Cabal has awoken something deep beneath the surface, and it’s up to you and your fellow Guardians to confront it.
The PVP action in Destiny is home to some of the most intense battles across the cosmos, and Destiny 2 takes it to a whole new level as players engage in new 4v4 battles in The Crucible. At the gameplay reveal, teams engaged each other in an exciting new mode on a brand-new map:
- Countdown is a new competitive mode where players spawn on either Offense or Defense, and when the round ends you swap sides and roles. The goal is to plant a bomb at the enemy base, and then defend it until it explodes. Each round is worth one point. First team to six wins. To revive a teammate, you must use a revive token. Power weapon ammo is only granted to the one player who pulls it. Working as a team is the key to victory.
- Midtown is an abandoned part of the City. When the Red Legion invaded, they completely ignored this sector of the City in their takeover. The Legion deemed Midtown was of no tactical importance. Lord Shaxx agrees, which is why it was chosen as a Crucible arena in the first place.
PC players for the first time will be able to play a Destiny game. Destiny 2 will be available for PC with unlocked framerates and better graphics of course and it will be distributed by Blizzard Entertainment’s platform, Battle.net.
If you pre-order the game, you will have access to the game’s beta which will launch this Summer.
