For a game that begins with the heroes running away with their tails tucked between their legs and a seemingly unstoppable villain parading into the solar system, you’d think that Destiny 2 would have already hit its quota of melancholy beats. Not so fast! Bungie came from the Joss Whedon school of story writing and knows that the best way to keep your fans involved is to torture their favorite characters.
We won’t spoil anything for this September’s Forsaken expansion, but let’s just say that you best be spending quality time with certain game NPCs before it arrives. It’s not like it’s a tightly held secret as the studio is all but shouting this big twist from the mountaintop, but we like to think that we have a bit more class than that.
If you don’t mind some slight spoilage, you can watch the story trailer after the break.
