Forsaken Expansion to Include a Robust Character Boost
If you remember back to when Destiny 1 included character boosts, you may also remember that it wasn't all that great. You could boost your character, but then have to backtrack to work through the story and added content to get your character ready to roll in the most current locations. When Destiny 2: Forsaken launches in the fall, it will also come with a character boost, but a much better one than its predecessor.
During an E3 interview with Mashable, Scott Taylor and Chris Barrett said that the team had learned a lot during a recent "summit" where a coalition of players were invited to Bungie's studios to test the game and to provide feedback to the team about a variety of issues, including the notion of adding meaningful character boosts.
Bungie's goal is to bring returning players back to the game in a meaningful way that doesn't make them feel behind the curve.
"We are adding a character boost at the character screen. It's not going to be in your inventory, it's going to be presented front and center this time. You'd be at the point in the game where you'd be starting the Forsaken campaign."
Purchasing Forsaken will include a single character boost, though additional boosts will be able to be purchased from the in-game shop. A price point has not yet been set. However, in Destiny 1, character boosts were $30. It will remain to be seen where the new price point is set.
