Here’s what you can look forward to in Destiny’s future

Destiny, according to those who constantly defend it,  is all about its potential – not what’s really in the game right now. Its perpetual grind, asinine narrative and rinse-and-repeat mission structure are all offset by the potential its future content can bring.  A recent bug in the game has allowed a sneak peak in to what future content will bring – and it brings with it great potential. For more of the same, really. 

Don’t get me wrong; I rather enjoy the heck out of Destiny. It’s a darned good time and I plan on playing the heck out of its strikes for months to come. That said, it’s difficult not to see its faults.

Here’s the video from YouTuber Kinsey_92 , showing the bug that locked players out of the tower, but also gave a glimpse of the future.

For those of you who’re averse to videos, or just don’t have the time to watch a cursor floating about on a screen, here’s what you can expect in the upcoming Destiny content, which is all part of its expansion pass.

Earth

  • Strike [Level 10] – The Jovian Complex: A new Hive brood gathers it’s strength beneath the cosmodrome. Find their master and purge them all.
  • Story Mission [Level 18] – The Veil Lifted: Root out the Hive beneath the Cosmodrome and discover a long-hidden secret of the Golden Age.
  • Story Mission [Level 18] – The Seeding: Investigate the return of ancient Hive Wizards, preparing Earth for Crota’s reign.
  • Story Mission [Level 20] – Gone to Ground: Find a Wolves baron and his conspirators who have betrayed the Queen and are hiding in the Cosmodrone.

Moon

  • Strike [Level 14] – The House of Wolves: No description
  • Strike [Level 26] – The Summoning Pits: Xyor, the Unwed awaits your arrival at the bottom of the Hellmouth (part of an exotic bounty not new expansion content. Thanks to /u/The7ruth)
  • RAID [Level 28] – Crota’s End: He waits in the dark below
  • Story Mission [Level 20] – The Wakening: Stop the Hive from summoning Crota and consuming our worlds.

Venus

  • Story Mission [Level 20] – Wolves’ Harvest: Track down the Queen’s traitorous Wolves and recover what they’ve stolen from the Awoken.
  • Story Mission [Level 22] – The Citadel: Ascend to the top of the Vex stronghold on Venus and assassinate the Wolves’ Kell

Mars

  • Strike [Level 20] – The Hypogeum: The ressurection of the Black Garden has begun. Stop the Vex before the Garden’s heart beats again.

Reef

  • RAID [Level 28] – Reef Raid: No Description

Crucible

  • Skirmish [Special Event?] – Only the worthy may face the Trials of Osiris for only the worthy are strong enough to endure what is to come.

I really, really hope Bungie’s taken the criticism and put a little more effort in to the game’s narrative and mission structure for its add on content. If I’m forced to listen to Peter Dinklage deliver poorly written dialogue in monotone as he hacks yet another computer or door as waves of enemies spawn, I  may be forced to eat my own face. 

Read  Destiny 2: Where is Xur (and whats he got for sale?) – 03 November

Those strikes though!

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    The Queen’s Wrath missions were the best way to get legendaries and ascendant shards and energies – and then Bungie f*cked us all in the collective eye, by patching out the ascendant shards (from those legendaries). Thereby, taking whatever desire I might have to help my lesser levelled buddies to go through the same fucking mission, again.. and again.. and again….

    I couldn’t care less about the loot cave. Who in their right mind would shoot at a cave for hours at an end? Honestly, who in their right minds? Go play Candy Crush, or Sims 4, you ridiculous fools!!

    I really hope they get their act together, because while I still enjoy rocking this game with my online buddies, I just can’t help but feel that Bungactivision ripped out chunks of the game to artificially inflate their expansion packs. Just look at all that content THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE BASE GAME!!! This is absolutely disgusting from Activision and Bungie (no seriously fuck them both).

    Additional Banana peel – Guys, I’m no longer pre-ordering anything. F*Ck that practice! (OG BANANA). I was going to pre-order Shadow of Mordor, but I’m rather going to wait and see what the community say.

    Sigh! Is it just me or has this year been one massive disappointment gaming wise?

    • oVg Definitive and Remastered

      Even Metroid Prime has better lore and they did Light vs Dark.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      I feel your pain dude, I’m glad PC missed out

    • oVg Definitive and Remastered

      Im amazed that I was ranting like Angey Joe 2 months before the game was released. Even Kotaku called it 1 year ago.

    • Hammersteyn

      I’m almost Vanguard rank 2. My plan is then to buy all the legendary armor I can and dismantle the shit out of it for shard. Also I spent almost all my motes of light on Xur and he drops a exotic helm for a Warlock class, problem is I’m a Titan. WTF!

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I hit Vanguard Rank 3 (and Crucible Rank 2) on Friday. I guess I’m going to do a few more strikes this week so that I can be fully kitted out in purples and exotics for the weekend.

        • Hammersteyn

          Drop me a line if you want to do the Raid or need more people, Me Sageville and Nicolai are keen

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Definitely lads, I’m level 28 at the moment. http://www.bungie.net/en/Profile/254/4636417

          • Hammersteyn

            26, I’m scraping for those damn shards.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Those… damn.. shards! sigh! I had 23 strange coins for Xur, and I managed to get that awesome exotic autorifle. 😀

          • Hammersteyn

            Nice!

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Exotic autorifle….does it need a safe-word?

            😛

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            When I’m in PVP – people definitely need a safe word. It’s pew-pew-tastic!!

          • Jonah Cash

            Thanks buddy!!! 🙂 Hahahahaha

        • Nikola

          Guys raid is on Tuesday 20:00 so come join if you keen add me on PSN Nikola_Domazet we doing it as a Lazygamer clan!

          • Jonah Cash

            The VOG was crazy yesterday!! We need a bit more planning and a lot less run and gun!! We died soooooo many times!!

          • Nikola

            People need to know tactics for the boss unfortunately you can’t just come in and think you going to finish it. I got the tactics down now I watched a few videos for it yesterday but I recommend anyone who wants to raid tomorrow needs to watch it! Other wise it ain’t going to work I posted a link to a very good video in the clan page

          • Hammersteyn

            I”M THERE!

    • Jedi Consular Kromas

      I said I won’t pre-order again but then I pre-ordered Dragon Age. Witcher and Civ. It is almost like that time I said I would quit smoking and then started again a week later. I am weak.

      • Admiral Chief 0

        Dark Jedi…….Or Sith, giving in to your passions

        • Jedi Consular Kromas

          Actually it would be the opposite. If I did not play a game because I hate the company then I would have given in to my emotions. 😛

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I know bud, but I’m done. Destiny was the straw that broke this camel’s wallet.

        • Admiral Chief 0

          So I guess that answers the question of how many pre-order fails spoils the banana

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            Your answer is not valid. He was spoiled to begin with. 😛

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Muahahahah!

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Hahahahahahahahaha

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            42? Nah, just been a particularly kak year gaming wise. Only KZ: ShadowFall and Diablo 3 have saved me from defenestrating myself.

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            This year was a rather dismal year but let us not forget the next 3 months will be the testing ground. Civ,DA,Evolve all may just be a great pick-me-up we need.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            It has been a good year for me! My backlog is decreasing!

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            Yeah ….. I keep replaying games instead of working on my backlog. 😛

          • Admiral Chief 0

            LOL, that TOO is a bit of a problem.

            HERE IS LOOKING AT YOU PLANETSIDE 2 AND KOTOR 2!!!!!!!

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            I just started Kotor 2 when I was whisked away.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Same here. Enjoying the restored content mod?

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            Not at home as of yet and when I left all I did was stabilize my character and fix the ship with the little astromech droid.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            The REAL fun begins post Peragus

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            Yeah … hoping to play this weekend.

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Wow, you just went oVbanana on this, but I have to agree with you, especially with the feedback I’ve received from my friends on the whole Destiny experience.

      • Admiral Chief 0

        “Friends” you say?

        😛

        • ReaperOfSquirrels

          Yeah, something I don’t expect you to know about. 😛

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Mr Bigglesworth is not impressed with you

          • ReaperOfSquirrels

            I’m sure he/she/it isn’t… but it’s Monday, and no F***s are given today.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            The amounts of Fs given is equal to the character name I’m playing in BL2

    • Sean Carbutt

      Loving your comments Banana, lov em. My thoughts are exactly the same. Far too often do developers take base game content and add it to expansion packs as an additional purchase. I do enjoy Destiny, I do, but FFS how many times must I do the same repetitive shit. Plus now by Wednesday I have nothing left to do. My Vanguard 100 point cap is done. Yes there is raid armor, but thanks to Bungee, I got fuckall for doing the raid of glass, well except for a color skin.

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered

    Here is what you can look forward to in Destiny until the new HALO arrives.

    Fixed.

  • Hammersteyn

    I just want some ascendant shards to upgrade my armor. Plus I have to wait until the weekend for Nux or whatever to come back so I can continue my exotic bounty. Tell you what though. The honey moon period is over. I will still log in for daily missions and rewards but as soon as October hits and AAA season starts my Destiny will change from grinding to playing something new.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      I might be missing after Shadow of Mordor hits (if that game can deliver and pluck me out of my gamer depression then I’ll be a happy chappy again). Destiny has been a massive disappointment. Thing is they’ve built this insane world and the grimoires contain amazing lore… and yet you have to wonder, why the FUCK is that not in the game.

      Take one bit of lore: The vandals- You know most of them have 4 arms, but every once in a while there’s a dude with only two arms, who rush you with their swords. Why? Well… those guys had their arms amputated because they dishonoured their Kell, and thus they try extra hard to regain their honour.

      • Admiral Chief 0

        SoM looks pretty awesome

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Yes, my body is ready for it, but I won’t preorder it. Principles!!

          • Admiral Chief 0

            My wait-for-the-epic-steam-sale tactic has served me well thusfar!

            The results are two-fold
            1.) Check reception/reviews etc to make sure game is epic
            2.) Save plenty moooolah

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Steam sale 2014 was glorious! I will be waiting for Steam sale 2015! Just in time to upgrade my ancient rig.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            I too need to up my CPU (GPU is still glorious), however, CPU needs new mobo and ramzors…

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            X99 with DDR4!!!!!

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Let me just swipe this old thing…….

      • Hammersteyn

        I would love to know more about the lore. But asking me to stop playing and go read about it on a website is a fucking joke. Why can’t Peter narrate the lore in game. Pop up a random fact now and then.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Exactly! WHY IS IT NOT IN THE GAME? WHY????

          • Hammersteyn

            So their website can get more hits? At least I can read it on my phone while I sit on the loo

        • Jedi Consular Kromas

          This is exactly how WoW gets to stay in the top position. Lore lore and more lore and only every once in a while you have to go check a video with more lore (that is also already somewhere in the game but the videos are nice.)

  • Hammersteyn

    The header gives me an idea, make a second ghost available but have Bill Murray do the voice.

    • Jedi Consular Kromas

      So he can go bust himself? 😛

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL didn’t think about that.

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    Loot on Destiny being a pain… don’t worry, I haven’t gotten anything useful on Diablo 3 in over 4 hours of play, but my friend got a full set of gear in that time… so I feel your pain Destiny players, D3’s hating on me and my 87% magic find.

  • Nikola

    Yes please!! Can’t wait for this more new content will be awesome:)

    • Hammersteyn

      I checked your character out last night, where did hell did you find all that exotic loot?

      • Nikola

        Well you know when you good you good lol:)…..I got lucky dude I got an exotic bounty that’s how I got the heavy machine gun and the head i got for those strange coins from Xur! Now I just need those shards to level however if we start raiding we gona be good:))

  • Jonah Cash

    For a game that is “not that good” I sure as shit can’t open twitter and not find an article about it in my timeline!! I am still enjoying it, but did play 4 matches Fifa this weekend… Also I see that Fifa 15 isn’t just loved… Who knew that reviewers could see the problems with the mighty Fifa???? I am still waiting for the first patch before I buy it!!

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered

    ON DISC DLC? really?
    You gamers are still supporting that bullshit. Sigh.

    “Destiny’s future content has been leaked due to a glitch a player encountered and some of that content may already be in the disc. You can even glitch into some of these places and be able to see the new enemies, which means the DLC was simply locked and was already on the disc. Maybe not all.”

    • Hammersteyn

      I bought the digital copy, so my hardrive is full of stuff I can’t use until I pay them extra O_o

      • oVg Definitive and Remastered

        The same with the discs considering all the DATA has to be installed.

  • Darren Peach

    Me thinks Destiny is not a good one for the Bandwidth challenged……..
