Activision Bungie Destiny Destiny 2

Bungie recently announced that the highly-anticipated sequel to Destiny will arrive on September 8 later this year, along with other head scratching details.



The first trailer explains nicely where and when the story of Destiny 2 takes place:

"Humanity's last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city's Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity's scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home."

So basically Ghaul totally jacked your hard-earned stash of valuables from the first Destiny and now it's payback time!

Sadly there wasn't any gameplay trailer. That one will come our way on May 18, via a scheduled livestream.

Onto the announcements!

First off: expansions! You knew they were coming but it's still annoying as hell. Bungie has planned as many as two expansions even though the game hasn't been released yet, so we should at least give them a round of applause for the sheer ballsiness of this move.

The move was apparently done to make our lives easier, as you can purchase the season pass that will include the two pieces of DLC when they drop. The two expansions will supposedly feature, "brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armor, and gear."

If you preorder Destiny 2 now, you will have early access to the beta of the game! The beta's availability will be announced at a later date and PC players can rejoice because aside from the expected PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases, Bungie announced that a PC version will be available as well.

Of course, no triple A title announcement would be complete without details on the different editions of the game, as every special edition comes with a plethora of exclusive bonus content. Ready your wallets, folks!
