Destiny 2 is one of the most anticipated game of the year and a lot of people are excited about the new gameplay that will be on offer. The original game gained a massive following and was very popular among players so the sequel can only hope to improve upon that. Recently in an interview executive producer David Allen sat down and discussed different details regarding the upcoming game.
One part of the conversation centered around one complain which the fans have had about the sequel , and that is the lack of interesting and new races or classes to the game. David Allen was asked about his thoughts on the disappointing number of new races and classes that are present in the sequel to the amazing shooter.
“I think hopefully, as you get the chance to play against the Red Legion, you’ll see there’s a substantial difference there in terms of their units. And obviously you’ve got some returning races that we haven’t talked about in detail yet.”, David Allen responded when asked about the issue of fans being concerned about the lesser number of new maps and races.”
There was also a question raised about the addition of new subclasses instead of entirely new classes since the game will not carry over progress from the first and that allows everyone to have a fresh start. This is what Allen had to say:
“It’s something that’s come up in conversation, but we’ve never really… when we think about the game we look at where do we feel like we have an area to grow? We feel like the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock… there’s still new ways to play those classes that we can explore.
And when you look at the community that exists around the game, up to this point, and you see the attachment that they have to those. You see pictures of people on the Internet who have the logos tattooed on their bodies and you think, ‘This is something that people really have a deep connection to’.”
It will be interesting to see how Destiny 2 utilizes these new subclasses while not adding a lot of new stuff, it will definitely be an exciting formula if they can carry forward what made the first game fun and then also learn and rectify the mistakes of the original.
Destiny 2 comes out on September 6 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Let us know if you’ll be pre-ordering to get a chance to play the early beta in the comments section below. Stay tuned for more!
