The sequel to Bungie’s solar system-trekking role-playing shooter hits this September.
After a couple of leaks in the form of in-store posters, and some slight teasing, Bungie and Activision have finally revealed Destiny 2. The sequel to the charts-busting “mythic science fiction” Destiny lands September 8.
For the first time in the franchise’s history, the title will be hitting PC as well as PS4 and Xbox One when it launches later this year.
An Expansion Pass has also been unveiled for the upcoming title, with icons hinting at Osiris and Rasputin content (for those not in the know, Osiris is a mythical Warlock in the Destiny universe and has an end-game PvP named after him, and Rasputin is the old “Warmind” AI of Earth, sitting in Old Russia).
Despite all of this, Bungie says new players will not need to have any knowledge from the previous three years of Destiny releases, and indeed returning players will be limited in what their characters transfer into this new game.
The original Destiny launched three years ago to criticisms of a rocky launch and limited content and reports of troubled development. Let’s see how the sequel pans out.
A new reveal trailer showing Vanguard leaders Cayde-6 and Zavala rallying on troops (or, trying to, in the case of Cayde-6…) has also been released, and you can check it out by clicking here.
