Destiny 2 Season 2 Will Allow Players to Purchase Gear Directly From Lord Saladin
When it comes to sustaining a healthy community of active players, the Player-versus-Player (PvP) experience holds great importance for Destiny 2 or any game for the matter that features both single-player and multiplayer components.
The highly anticipated sequel in the lucrative science-fiction franchise has been struggling to retain its player-count since it was released more than a month back. Those who are still willing to give the game a second chance should know that there are several improvements heading their way in the coming months.
While hosting a panel at TwitchCon 2017 earlier today, Bungie announced that Destiny 2 will feature four seasons every year. The developer acknowledged the problems faced by players in the ongoing inaugural season and has promised to do better in the next.
To start with, the Iron Banner for the second season will feature notable changes. Instead of grinding engrams for random loot, players will be able to purchase gear directly from Lord Saladin with Tokens. Legendary Shards will also be a currency through which players can get gear but it is unclear as to how that will work.
Ornaments are being added to Iron Banner, Faction Rally, and Trials. Players will have to complete challenges that are tracked by the gear itself in order to unlock the respective ornaments.
Since every season will be themed differently, there will be exclusive items to obtain that will not be available afterwards. Consider this an incentive for players to make sure that they do not miss any single season.
Trials of the Nine will be overhauled as well with refreshed perks and better rewards. More details on this will be share soon. Bungie also promised at least one new Crucible map in the next season.
We are currently in the middle of the first season. It is unknown as to when the second season will begin but the community can look forward to at least another Iron Banner and Faction Rally event after Destiny 2 releases for PC next week.
