Destiny2

Destiny 2 is shaping up to be everything that fans wanted from a sequel to Bungie’s not-quite-an-MMO space shooter. It’s got new weapons, new planets and a new social space given that the Tower came crumbling down.

Importantly, it’s got a new bad guy in Dominus Ghaul, the leader of the Red Legion. He’s a big bad bastard, and he’ll be the primary antagonist for you and your band of heroes as you make your way through the galaxy shooting at stuff. Sony showed off a new trailer for Destiny 2, that light on gameplay, did give us a better look at the bad guy.

The trailer also revealed that Sony’s marketing with Activision is in place for Destiny 2, and it’s probably best to play the game on PlayStation. The PlayStation 4 (and PS Pro!) version of the game will play host to quite a bit of extra, platform-exclusive content. Here’s the trailer, and a look at what extra content PlayStation players will be getting:

  • Exotic sniper rifle – Borealis
  • Strike – Lake of Shadows
  • PvP map – Retribution
  • Ship – City Apex
  • Exclusive Gear

Destiny 2 is out on September 8th 2017, and is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Surprisingly, Activision is leveraging Blizzard for PC support, with Destiny 2 going on sale exclusively through Battle.net. There is also a beta set for later this year, so that everyone will get a chance to play before launch.

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.

  • MonsterCheddar

    PFFFFFFFFFFFFF. NEVER.

  • “Surprisingly, Activision is leveraging Blizzard for PC support, with Destiny 2 going on sale exclusively through Battle.net.”

    Well that, and the fact that we don’t get dedicated servers on PC side. This game can GITS.

    • Hammersteyn

      I’ll organize a play date on the PS4 then?

    • There are no dedicated servers for any platform. Destiny has always used a hybrid system – and Destiny 2 will continue to do that. The original quote that led to that info was taken a bit wrong.

      • But it’s going to use P2P then, and from previous experiences, P2P for those who live outside the US or EU just does not work that well. We recently saw this in For Honor and Wildlands, both games frustrating players to no end even to a point where SA player could not get into games in For Honor.

        It is a cheap and stupid way to implement multiplayer.

        • Smuroh

          I still to this day cant get into any For Honor game and it sucks so much because it think that game is really good and has no rival.

        • Hammersteyn

          Destiny worked fine for the most parts, most.

          • And people who have ADSL just gets royally screwed. The upload is to slow and unstable on copper.

          • Hammersteyn

            It worked fine on my 4MB line, I had to fiddle with my modem settings a bit but the fiddling applied to all games. Too bad I lost my modem login details when I broke my last laptop 🙁

          • Why not reset to default and enter all the details again? 😛

          • Hammersteyn

            Because it works fine as is and I’m too scared that I won’t be able to get it right again. I’d basically have to go and search through old LAGZ articles and other forums

        • Having played a shitton of Destiny, I can say that it worked just fine in SA. It was a blast.

  • Pieter Kruger

    You probably want……ANTHEM!

    • Hammersteyn

      Yeah, um that’s probably coming out late 2018, we’ll play this till then thanks.

    • Original Heretic

      Out of all the games that have come out of E3, that’s the one that’s really grabbed my attention. I have high hopes for it. I’m crossing all my fingers, my toes and even some other appendages, hoping that they don’t screw it up!

      • Hammersteyn

        Same here.

    • Definitely. But it’s only out at the end of 2018 at the earliest.

    • And you’ll get another E3 to watch to get excited even more before it comes out 😛

    • Guild

      Who doesn’t want it? Looks awesome. I should be done with Destiny 2 by the time it launches.

  • Hammersteyn

    LOL those comments on the Destiny vid. But my word, Borealis has three damage types and you can switch at will O_o

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Don’t want this at all. Not on PC or PS4.

    • Did want it. Got hyped. Watched the reveal show on Twitch. Don’t want none of this pot a crock game near my PC.

  • HairyEwok

    Timed exclusive… so not really bothered.
