Destiny developed by Bungie and published by Activision Blizzard takes place in the future in the milky way solar system in which a catastrophic event has stricken Earth. There's only one city left on Earth protected by a large sphere called The Traveler. Players are put in to the role of a Guardian powered by The Traveler. Guardians will work together as the last hope of mankind to try and discover what led to the downfall of humanity. Especially after the golden age allowing humans to travel to other planets. While Destiny hasn't been referred to as an MMO, it's a shared world first person shooter.
In case you missed it in our post about Activision-Blizzard's Q4 2016 earnings, the gaming giant has informed fans that Bungie's Destiny 2 is coming sometime in 2017, though the exact timing of the release remains unknown.
Destiny players will be able to get into the holiday spirit starting on December 13th during The Dawning. The event will feature new quests and bounties, new challenges and marks the return of the Sparrow Racing League. There are 2 new tracks, one on Earth, one on Mercury. Lastly, a brand new game mode called Strike Scoring has been added.
Destiny players will be able to check out this year's version of the Festival of the Lost, the game's version of a Halloween celebration. During the event, players will be able to collect masks, candy and laugh in the face of Death itself. Check out this year's trailer before heading to the Destiny site.
Now that Destiny's last expansion has been out in the wild for some time, it's safe to say that the game never completely lived up to its promise. Even though the game had some great ideas and some of the best gunplay on Playstation 4, the execution never met the mark, even though it became progressively better over time. Friends, Destiny: The Beta is done. Now it's time to look forward to Destiny 2 -- especially if you're a PC player!
Bungie has released a brand new trailer to show off the Destiny: Rise of Iron raid called Wrath of the Machines that is scheduled to launch on Friday, September 23rd at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern.
