The developers of Destiny 2 are looking ahead to the game’s Year 4 in this week’s report, specifically at changing the way players earn rewards. Or “aspirational” things, as they like to put it, which would almost sound noble if it weren’t referencing gear chases.
One of these first “aspirations” is a new set of armor that can be chased after with every season, such as a set of armor being removed from the Eververse in-game store and being put into an aspirational activity as an example. Speaking of aspirational activities (aka raids, dungeons, and trials), rewards are getting boosted for those as well, with promise of power, items, vanity equipment, and at least one accessory to pursue, new Adept weapons and new armors for the Trials of Osiris, and new armor, weapons, and exotic accessories in the next raid.
Destiny 2 will also be introducing a transmog system sometime in Year 4, which lets players turn their armor into Universal Ornaments at the cost of Silver or “in-game effort.” Finally, the Eververse store will stop selling ships, ghost shells, sparrows, or armor ornaments that are based on visual themes from aspirational activities. These types of items will still be on sale, of course, but the ones tied to whatever aspirations Guardians reach for in-game will be purely based on in-game effort.
