Now with all said and done, are you as excited as we are for the full launch of Destiny 2?
T3 loved the original Destiny and with Destiny 2 launching on September 6th for PS4 and Xbox One, and October 24th for PC, if you too are a fan of the original game then chances are you're already counting down the days to launch like us.
Meanwhile, PC players will have their own "Destiny 2" beta starting late August. I mean, it's probably good practise for playing a game about shooting and looting, to be honest.
What PvE activities can I participate in?
There are also a few Easter Eggs hidden around the Tower during the "Homecoming" mission. So make sure you take them down. Even the Crucible - Destiny's multiplayer mode hasn't been spared.
Character Continuity: Destiny 2 is a fresh start. Countdown is an attack/defense mode, with a touch of Trials. Helping to make up for that is the fact that the effects have been improved; at times, the eye candy can be awesome.
In addition to showing off a story stage, the new Crucible mode is available. Two teams fight for control of three flags throughout the battlefield. Control, meanwhile, sees teams battling it out to capture and defend control points on the map.
Character Progression: You'll receive rewards for defeating your enemies - be they Cabal, Vex, or other Guardians - but the Beta does not represent how your characters will evolve in Destiny 2.
Anyone who has played Destiny will know that when it wants to be, it's a video game that can be crushingly hard.
To no one's surprise, the beta is pretty much filled with bugs at the moment, notably the Termite and Moose errors.
There is no hint yet if the third sub-class slot and the other sub-classes from Destiny 1 will return. It might not have the wide, sprawling shipyard of Old Russia, or the eerie, claustrophobic vibes of being on the Moon like the first game, but it isn't committing to a level of interactivity or vibrancy that many expected from these locales when Destiny 1 finally hit retail.
Meanwhile, online retailers like Amazon and Games The Shop have made no changes to the pre-order prices for these hot-selling titles, as the game distributor World Wide CD ROM has asked these outlets to consider the old price on all pre-orders, until the game is officially released.
