Bungie: Destiny 2 Beta Has Been “Amazingly Helpful” For The Team
Destiny 2 beta is underway and gamers are enjoying every moment of it. With the upcoming sequel, Bungie has made some changes to the overall formula and this beta is definitely is a good opportunity to get feedback from the community itself and according to Bungie, Destiny 2 Beta has been very helpful.
In the latest weekly Blog post from Bungie, producer Jared Berbach revealed that Destiny 2 beta has been “amazingly helpful” for the development team. He added that given that Destiny 2 is built upon new technology, it requires “a lot of testing”.
This testing ultimately helps us validate that our new server model is working as we thought it would, and at the quality and scale we had hoped. It helps us evaluate our new tech advancements, including enhancements you’ll understand more fully when you play the full game. Ultimately, it paves the way for us to have a much smoother launch.
Design lead Rob Engeln added that the purpose of this beta is to gather feedback from the community over gameplay and balances. He added that the beta is based on the months old game build and the feedback is to validate the choices that have already been made.
In related news, One of the main issues with the first game was the lack of a proper narrative or answers relating to the Travelers existence. However, Bungie is aiming to change all that in Destiny 2. According to Bungie, they hope players will complain about how many stories they have baked into the game.
We’re learning from and listening to all the feedback we got on Destiny 1, and we’re applying it. I hope people complain about how much story we have. That’d be the Reddit thread I’d like to read. ‘Too much damn story [makes angry typing gesture].
Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at Bungie and is scheduled to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
