Overview

Destiny 2 Overview

Destiny 2 is a sci-fi shooter with MMO elements. It includes the same 3 Guardian Classes: Warlock, Hunter, Titan but adds new super abilities to each. Set one year after the events of the final Destiny expansion, the sequel expands on the original in many ways. A much larger world consisting of 4 new regions, instant travel (no need to orbit), more NPCs and PvE activities, and new raids await. Open beta will be available to all, but those who pre-order will get access sooner. The game went free to play on September 17, 2019, but expansions continue to cost money.

Destiny 2 Key Features:

  • Twice The Size - Explore 4 new zones: Titan, Io, Nessus, and the European Dead Zone. Each area is twice as big as any location in the original game.
  • Do More Than Patrol - Each of the 4 new zones features full towns, quest giving NPCs, adventures, and traditional patrol missions.
  • Team PvP - The PvP modes in the original are replaced with teamplay focused 4v4 modes.
  • Official Clan Supports - Coordinate raids, Find groups of like minded gamers, and form lasting bonds with other players.

Development History / Background:

Destiny 2 was first announced in November 2014 by Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg. The game was originally planned to release in September 2016, but Bungie announced on February 11, 2016 that Destiny 2 was pushed back to 2017.

Bungie has been assisted in development by Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios.

Unlike the original game, Destiny 2 will be released for the PC and distributed on the Blizzard Launcher. Several editions of the game are currently planned for sale including: a Collector's Edition, a Limited Edition, a Digital Deluxe Edition, and a standard version. Pre-orders grant players access to the game's beta. An Expansion Pass will also be sold granting players access to the first 2 expansions when they are released.

Destiny 2 launched on September 6, 2017 on Battle.net, but Blizzard and Bungie separated in early 2019, with Bungie taking over publishing rights.

Destiny 2 also announced that it would go free to play on September 17, but expansions will continue to cost money.
