Destiny 2’s epic story, new worlds and subclasses revealed

It's time to reclaim the city this September as Bungie's shared world shooter returns

Hey, PlayStation Nation. At this very moment, we’re in Los Angeles for the Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere. It’s an exciting time for our studio and the entire community. If you didn’t have a chance to tune into the livestream, I’m thrilled to share some of the details.

Destiny 2 will be a brand new adventure — a fresh start for all players. A devastating attack from a new enemy will drive us back into the wild. Every Guardian will need to acquire new weapons and new forms of power if we’re to reunite, fight back, and reclaim the City. Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks will have new subclasses with powerful abilities to master.

Your journey will launch you out to the stars. Four new worlds wait for you to discover them, filled with more action than we’ve ever packed into a Bungie game. The activities that players have loved in Destiny are back, including a Campaign, Strikes, the Crucible, and a new Raid. As part of a streamlined experience driven by a new Director, we’re adding new ways to explore these worlds, including Adventures and Lost Sectors that you can enjoy on the fly without returning to orbit.

In between explosive moments of action, Destiny is a game that builds community. If you’re the leader of a Clan, you’ll find a new set of social tools in the game that will help you recruit new members and build Fireteams. If joining a Clan is not your thing, but you always wanted to find a group to help you embark on a Raid, a new feature we’re calling Guided Games will let you team up with Clans for one mission and experience the toughest challenges that Destiny 2 will have to offer!

The PlayStation 4 will be an amazing place to play Destiny 2. Every player on PS4 will have access to exclusive content. We’ll tell you all about what awaits you this summer. What we can tell you right now is that, on PS4 Pro, you’ll explore the new worlds of Destiny 2 in all their 4K beauty.

There’s so much more to say about Destiny 2, but we’re off to a good start. We can’t wait for you to get a taste of the action yourself in the Beta this summer. In the meantime, check out all the details at www.destinythegame.com.

DeeJ, out.

I watched the live stream and was very impressed. Now as a promo is there any chance we’ll soon see a hefty discount on Rise of Iron? I already have everything prior but find £25 too much considering the complete collection can be bought for £20 new in physical. Get that dlc to below £10 and I’ll snag it right up!

4k Ow Yeah baby!

Will it be Native 4K or checkerboard 4K for the Pro? I take it the console version will be 30FPS?

3.1

The Pro only does checkerboard.

3.2

What? No it doesn’t. Various games run in full 2160p

3.3

Not sure if trolling or has no idea what he/she is on about. Here is a list of NATIVE 4K games that I know.

Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection

Battleborne

Bound

Bulletstorm

Darks-iders

Dynasty Warriors 9

Farming Simulator

FIFA 17

PES 17

Forma

Gravity Rush 2

Here They lie

Hustle Kings

King of Fighters

Mantis Burn

Shadow of Mordor

MLB the show

NBA

Nioh

Paladins

Resogun

Rocket League

Elder Scrolls Skyrim

Elder Scrolls Online

Probably a lot more that supports 4K. So yer I disagree with your “only does checkerboard” comment.

“epic story”

Got to say it looks pretty sweet, I just hope they’ve built a decent engine this time that will allow them to add to the game more frequently. That and more regular level cap increases. L20 will be reached pretty quickly by the hardcore I think….

Oh and one other thing, I pre ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition via PSN but I cannot find my Dynamic Theme anywhere. It clearly states on the Pre Order details that “pre-orders also receive a PS4 dynamic system theme”.

Any idea when that will be?

Good grief, they haven’t fired that Deej guy yet? Seriously, I’ve never seen anyone spew so much useless spin in all my years of gaming. An “epic story”? Riiiiiight, I’ll believe that when I see it. Tell you what, pal, come back and see us when you have 12 new worlds to explore, not 4.

4 v 4 mp and 30 fps. Think I’ll pass this time.

After getting burned with D1 I think I’ll wait a couple years till an all in one pack is in the bargain bin and it’s an actual complete game, not a hollow shell of one. 4 New worlds? Pfff.. I suppose the majority of the campaign will still be in the dark ages of 3 player as well?

Also where’s the graphical improvements? Looks about the same as D1. Probably all recycled assets.

мне нравится игра но почему нет пробного бета тестирования я хочу попробовать прежде чем купить

10.1

Бета будет летом. За предзаказ дают ранний доступ к бете. Точные даты еще не объявили.

I played through the first one 3 times and I still have no idea what the story is about. I had a great time playing it but this seems like more of the same. Will wait for discount.
