Destiny 2 cranks out events, teases ‘seasons,’ and prepares for the PC invasion

With a few weeks to go before the PC launch of Destiny 2, Bungie has its hands full preparing for an influx of new players while placating current ones.

To keep the console crowd occupied, a pair of events are on their way! A PvP event called Iron Banner will begin on October 10th and pit small teams against each other for supremacy. The studio stresses that “fighting abilities, not power levels” will determine victory. And for the PvE crowd, a “prestige raid” is coming on Tuesday for the truly hardcore.

Bungie was also teasing something called “seasons” in this week’s newsletter. It promised fans that they would find out more when TwitchCon rolls around.

“As we continue to ride this wave, the game will tell its own continuing story,” the studio wrapped up. “Your Milestones will reveal the mysteries of the weekly resets. We’ll plot some more distant milestones right here. There are a few mentioned above to fuel speculation. Destiny is a turbulent landscape that’s always changing, so our focus tends to be weekly. There is still a lot to talk about, and the game will serve up new challenges every time you visit that world.”

I got the PS4 version and enjoying it so far. It is an improvement of Destiny 1 for sure. It is enough to entertain me till SW Battle Front II comes out.

If you do the typical content locust routine, you might become bored in a month. Since I play 2~3 times a day, have plenty of content to finish.

2-3 times a week is about enough. It’s a good casual relax and enjoy shooter. I’m no content locust and 2 weeks was enough for me. There’s just not much more to it than pew pew loot grind. Fun for what it is.

I got bored after two weeks. I don’t regret the purchase because I will probably jump in again once in a while for pew pew, but it’s not that deep or compelling for me. I still prefer my proper mmorpgs. It’s just fun to sit in my recliner for a bit of light fun.

Actually bought it for both PS4 and PC. Got a refund on the PC pre-order and I am happy about that.

And LOL “prestige” raid.

Really not sure if this is worth even pre-ordering the normal edition, let alone the pricier edition even if I can get it some % off from sites like GMG.

Teasing the PC release while the PS4 userbase is already plummeting due to burn out. So far they have not only learnt nothing from D1 but actually made some worse choices in multiple regards. Hopefully the expansions were post rise of iron development and bring back things like strike specific loot and weapons but right now everyone is using the exact same weapons that are super easy to get and when every activity is rewarding largely the same thing since gear was made ultra homogenised everything lacks an incentive and their holdovers are ‘just repeat the story missions’. Not even on a harder setting -harder difficulties have been removed from everything but the raid, yes really- since everything level scales now for the most part and its just a grind of white noise once the base story is exhausted.

My advice for pc players is save your money and wait and see if the dlc can do some good, right now this is an experience inferior to the high points of the first game. not as dead as vanilla but you can really see how replacing so many team members turned this into a very different kind of monster.

To use a reference PC only gamers would get this is Diablo 3. With less content, a lootpool that can be counted in maybe 200 pieces total including leveling junk and still a very anti solo player mentality.

I’m baffled, never have issues finding a group and I’m not even close to finishing the content. If people are playing 24/7 and burning content, their fault.

How do you know PS4 player base is plummeting? I find groups just as efficiently. I’m still having a blast in crucuble. The gunplay is that compelling.
Besides, why would the population on PS4 have anything to do with the PC population? Gamers burn out. It’s what we do.

The PC delay has been a blessing in disguise, as it has saved me $100 NZD.

Thanks Activision

Remind me again why pc players had to wait 2 months to play?

Because a) the PC release would have cannibalized console game sales and b) this way they can get the diehards to buy the game twice.

FTR- I have had it pre-ordered theough Blizzard since it was available. I played D1 on PS4 a little but hate shooters with game pads. I am looking forward to the PC release.

It wouldn’t be because launching 2 platforms at a time is enough. Quality versus quantity.
