Destiny 2’s launch trailer is clucking awesome

“Do you see all that I have done?”

The stakes are high for this fall’s Destiny 2, with a near-unstoppable villain smashing through the status quo to set himself on the top of a rubble of worlds and Destiny 1 character accomplishments.

On top of this morning’s news about some of the bells and whistles coming for the PC version, Destiny 2 released its launch trailer today to set the stage for the events to come. It’s a wild ride through a broken landscape with desperate sorties, Tron-style frisbees, massive guns, and even a chicken. Our money is on the chicken.

Treat yourself to some cinematic adrenaline after the break!

Will you be able to play this game solo, and will there be a decent campaign and story, or is this mainly a multiplayer shooter?

Reader

You can solo the whole campaign (at least you always could, throughout all four expansions in Destiny 1).

You could even solo in Patrol mode in Destiny 1, which is where you’re in the open world of each planet with other players. You don’t have to team. It’s fun to jump in temporarily, though, and help other people with the public quests and boss spawning events that happen in the different zones, but you don’t have to join a team to do that.

However, you need Playstation Plus or Xbox Live for most of the console stuff because you’re logging into multiplayer servers for most of it whether you choose to team or not. There’s no online fee for Destiny 2 on PC.

It sure looks pretty. Just not my kind of pretty.

I may be wrong, but i think this game will fail hard, everyone i’ve talked about it thinks it was a bad call for a sequence so very soon and wont be buying it. At the very best the game looks like a good DLC, there’s absolutely nothing in it that justify it being another game. (opinion of someone with around 700 hours of Destiny played)

What I’ve read is that the pre-order numbers are huge. My guess is this will be a big hit, it may not stick, but it’s going to have a massive launch

I can’t believe they are actually adding a chat window for the PC version. I also can’t believe they’re still not bothering this time around for the consoles. Any $5 USB keyboard in the world has been working on consoles for multiple generations now: there’s no excuse.

My biggest fear for the PC version is the endless droves of aimbotters, hackers, dupers and exploiters that are incoming to the Destiny franchise. I hope I’m wrong, but I doubt it.

They’re blocking streaming programs that hook into the client precisely to combat hacking because many hacking programs mimic it in order to gain access to the client

It will be on Battle.net and Blizzard is pretty good about squishing Aimbotters / hackers in Overwatch. If that is any indication, it will probably be fine. Pretty much all the good games (Not The Division) on PC that get good support don’t have nearly the amount of issues with aim bots that people seem to think. Especially an MMO style game. They exist, sure, but it is unlikely you will encounter any. In all likelyhood you are more likely to run into someone purposely attempting to ruin the experience on console due to FAR less moderation. (Yelling in chat, getting high rating in Overwatch and purposely losing games to grief people,ect.)

After how hackers were a total menace in The Division i sadly expect the same here.

I feel the same fears — I was very surprised by how many neutral-to-decent people I encountered regularly in Destiny, version one.

I can’t shake the feeling that putting the sequel game on PC will open the gates to the kinds of PC-specific ne’er-do-wells you describe.

Ah well, some things in life we cannot control …

Bought it for son and daughter, will probably load it up for myself after a few weeks of patches.

I’ll see you there, Massive friends.

Bring your favorite guns — and I’ll bring mine. :-)

This evil will not stand.

Meh. I’m underwhelmed by what I’ve seen so far. I’ll wait and see the launch reception before jumping in. Probably back on the PS since that’s where I played it and that’s where my crew will be. They do make a kick butt trailer though, no doubt.

Destiny had the best gunplay and overall game experience that I have played in a multiplayer shooter. D2 looks to be the same if not better. I do hope they made the bosses a little less spongy than in the beta that I played though.

The bad guy (I assume) totally looks like Darth Malgus.

He killed Darth Malgus with a spoon, and took his wardrobe. That’s the kind of trouble we’re in.

And I’m sure you already know why he used a spoon … :-)

Thank you, good sir! Hopefully your quotation made the spirit of Alan Rickman smile, may he rest in peace. :-)

Looking good. Hopefully this launch goes better than last time…
