Bungie Formally Announces Destiny 2

Posted March 30, 2017

Actor Nathan Fillion has lent his talents to a amusing short promoting the sequel to Bungie's online multiplayer shooter, Destiny 2, underlining the marketing spend the new entry has. In addition to reaffirming that the game will arrive in late 2017, Activision announced that Destiny 2 will have a "great cast of memorable, relatable characters" as well as a "cinematic storyline". If you zoom in on the fine print, it says more information the PS4 extras will come this summer, and that the content will remain exclusive until at least Fall 2018.

Let's start with the little stuff. On the original "Destiny" also features a timed-exclusive access on certain weapons, strikes, and Crucible maps of the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions. It also begs the question, will Destiny 1 players be rewarded for uploading their old guardians to the new game or will it not make a difference. The land beneath probably indicates The Last City, and the Destiny 2 logo sits atop the setting. This goes in hand with Activision's recent statement that the sequel will look to broaden the appeal of the franchise. You'll be able to catch it through the Destiny Twitter, Youtube and Facebook accounts as per usual. It is to maintain the level of playing field in Destiny 2. The first game was exclusive to consoles, but Bungie will reportedly open up the experience for PC gamers.

Destiny 2 is on its way.

Bungie has continued to provide excellent downloadable content for Destiny throughout its lifespan, with entire packs continuing the story and creating a deep, tangible sci-fi landscape nearly on a par with Star Wars, so we can't wait to see what it has up its sleeve for the next outing. There are also leaked photos insinuating that an action figure of the Hunter Vanguard Cayde-6 might be offered as a pre-order bonus.

This teaser focusing on Fillion's character leaves some fans hopeful for more of Cayde-6 upon the Destiny 2 release.

Leave your comments below on what you hope to see in DESTINY 2 and feel free to share what system you play on. This is no surprise since the original Destiny's beta too was launched first for the PS4 and the PS3. The game's sequel, Destiny 2, is expected to hit stores this September.
