Destiny 2 will take you to Titan, Io, and beyond

With the Vanguard scattered to the interstellar wind in Destiny 2, it will be up to player characters to travel to different planets in an attempt to rally them back together. This means new worlds, new maps, and new places to explore.

“Now you can actually go from one planet to another planet without going into orbit first,” the team said in a video. “We want to remove as many barriers as we can between your gun and the enemy’s face.”

The team promised that all of the maps will have a lot more in the way of secrets and treasure for the attentive explorer. These locales include the European Dead Zone, the methane oceans of Titan, a planetoid named Nessus, and Io.

Check it out after the break!

How MMO is this? will there be raids, PvE endgame etc?

If they can marry Destiny’s excellent raid/dungeon/gunplay mechanics with a bigger world with more to discover, I’m completely on board.

Yep. Plus if you look at the map from this article, there are a few obvious planet highlights indicating potential future unlocks. This is the same thing they did with the current planets during D1’s beta, when we only had access to earth and the moon.

Cool design, but why they insist on solar only places? Titan and Io are nothing like that, Io particularly would be impossible to colonize with ingame technology, there is constant seismic activity and extremely violent acid atmosphere. Id rather see them show interstellar worlds.

Also are they going to do PC release after consoles launch?

That’s the direction the story has gone. In Destiny 1, keep in mind humanity with the guardians were essentially cowering in one last spot. While there are remnants suggesting a star empire that went out much further, all of that was lost with the last war against the darkness and the death of the traveler. That’s why it’s called the Last City. At its core the game is basically post-apocalyptic.

In D2, at least starting out, we don’t even have the Last City anymore, so we’re in a worse place than before.

Looks neat, I did wonder why I never checked out Destiny and – oh yes, console-only. Might check this one out.

Also that structure on Io is Rata Sum, right?

Edit: Badges! Whee!

“Now you can actually go from one planet to another planet without going into orbit first,”

So Something that should have been Present in the First Game…From Day 0

That was absolutely due to legacy tech, having to wait to create a proper instance. With PS3 being out of the picture…

At least they fixed it.

I’m not sure why they had it on the older systems to begin, It felt like they dropped them fairly early, then again with my dipping in and out with it I’m not so sure.

The Beta for Destiny Promised so much and the release was so lackluster

I never played Destiny 1 as a PC gamer and I am interested in checking out Destiny 2 but this information blitz is kinda putting me off at the same time. It’s just like so much and everywhere feels like.

It’s really just Destiny 1.5, though: better graphics (they ditched old-gen consoles), a few fixes (like having an actual in-game story this time), some tweaks to a few annoyances, and the same old nerf-bat-wielding Bungie dev team.

If you aren’t a console player, then just hit the Destiny website to read all the story info concerning Destiny 1 (that’s the only place it is), google all the nerf bat swings, and you’ll be up to date and ready to go for Destiny 1.5 when it hits. ;)

I mean games are rarely so complicated to need all that, I was more commenting on I feel like everywhere I turn it’s Destiny 2 this or Destiny 2 that.

The author is just breaking the huge hour long reveal of last week into bite sized chunks.
