It’s been almost six months since Bungie and Activision split up to release the Destiny series, and it seems that Halo’s parents are ready to talk about how the game will change in the coming months. In a special broadcast broadcast today, the leadership of the Siatelite studio presents Destiny 2: New Light and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
Essentially, Destiny 2: New Light is a complete redesign of D2 to fit into the genre of action MMO. It has a new tutorial, a new progression system and many new elements of RPG, visit the Crucible to remodel maps, rules and modes, and so on. The most important thing of all is that it will allow us to explore all the contents of the game, including locations, patrols and world events for free (also the Moon), and will leave the contents of payment for new expansions and seasonal passes.
That’s where Destiny 2: Shadowkeep comes in, the next game adventure. This expansion will be published on September 17 in exchange for $ 35 and will take us back to the Moon, a location that we visited in the first game. However, this time will have suffered a substantial facelift and is twice as big as the last time. Of course, there will be new missions, equipment and things to do. Among the new activities we find a new dungeon and an incursion that takes place in the Black Heart.
Future seasons will continue to offer free content and premium content. The idea behind this, says Luke Smith (director) is that new players do not have to deal with different basic editions and buy multiple products, but they can buy the product in fashion and play it immediately with friends without going through complicated level curves.
Finally, New Light seeks to provide more flexibility in terms of gaming platforms. Today we knew that the game would be available in Stadia, which will allow us to play anywhere, but we will also have a cross progression. Thanks to this feature, we can take our guardian with us while we play on PC, PS4, Xbox One or Stadia and continue their adventure. If you play on PC, keep in mind that on September 17 the game will migrate from Battle.net to Steam, the only computer platform where we can play it for the foreseeable future.
