Bungie finally unveiled some Destiny 2 campaign gameplay today, along with a number of trailers and even part of the game’s first story mission. So far the game promises a lot, including a new, epic story that will allow players to explore even more of the Solar System with four new planets and areas.
In Destiny 2, the Last City is attacked and occupied by the Cabal’s Red Legion, led by Dominus Ghaul. Ghaul is a Cabal warlord who believes that the Cabal should own the Traveler and its Light, and so has captured the Traveler and robbed the Guardians of their abilities.
With the City in ruins, and the Guardians scattered, players must journey to Saturn’s moon Titan, Jupiter’s moon Io, and the planetoid Nessus, in order to gather Cayde-6, Ikora, and Zavala back together to lead the war to retake the City and the Traveler from the Cabal.
However, the Destiny 2 campaign isn’t going to be the only way to play. Players will still have strikes, raids, Trials of Osiris, and more in the game’s other activities, which will now be even easier to jump into through Guided Games.
Guided Games are a new mechanic in Destiny 2 that will allow solo players to run strikes and raids with Clans, another new feature in the game. Players will be able to pick the Clan that they run a strike or raid with, rather than having to struggle to pull a fireteam together for it.
Either way, with everything we were shown today, not just the Destiny 2 campaign but the gameplay, multiplayer promises, new mechanics, new weapons, and new armor, hopefully when the game releases in September we’ll be getting even more than what we saw on the stream.
Destiny 2 will be releasing September 8 of this year on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
