On Monday, Bungie officially revealed Destiny 2, following it up with a teaser trailer starring Nathan Fillion. Now after a few days of teasing the game and getting us all excited, Bungie has just released the reveal trailer for Destiny 2. The trailer shows off the games setting and it’s story, but unfortunately it doesn’t show any gameplay.
We’ve also got another bit of good news. The game will be launching on September 8th, and after alot speculation and a ton of rumours, it has been confirmed that Destiny 2 will launch on PC, and will mark the series’ debut on the platform.
Let’s take a quick look at the games story and setting, as narrated by the games developer Bungie:
“Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivor to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together and fight back to reclaim our home.”
Destiny 2, unlike a carry-over sequel, is going to be sort of fresh start for Bungie and previous players of the original Destiny. Players will be able to tranfer old characters from the original game to Destiny 2, but you’ll largely need to start from scratch with new weapons, gear and abilities.
The original game is still alive and kicking as of now, and Bungie has brought back some classic raids to bring about the end of the game.
Bungie has promised more details and a hand-on gameplay reveal livestream on May 18th.
Destiny 2 is slated for release on Sepember 8th on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A multiplayer beta is expected to launch in the summer.
