Destiny 2 Storyline

The Traveler’s shard is buried in a forest within the EDZ, and the Guardian follows a vision to find it. The Guardian’s Light and the Ghost’s Light are both restored after the Ghost’s interaction with the shard. Hawthorne intercepts a distress message from Commander Zavala, imploring surviving Guardians to travel to Saturn’s moon Titan and aid in mounting a counter-offensive, after restoring long-range communications. The Guardian heads to Titan, against Hawthorne’s concerns, where the Hive has taken power.

Due to Deputy Commander Sloane’s help, they discover the Red Legion was deployed to the Milky Way two years previous to the Taken War in response to a distress cry, and that Ghaul is in possession of the Almighty, an interstellar superweapon that can destroy stars. Resistance to the control of the Cabal has resulted in the destruction of entire star systems.

Also revealed is that the Almighty is positioned near the Sun, using Mercury as fuel. During the fight to reclaim the Last City, Zavala gives the Guardian the job of finding Ikora Rey and Cayde-6. During this period, it is revealed that Ghaul has been studying the Traveler in order to learn how to harness the Light and legitimize himself as Emperor, with the help of his mentor, the Consul.

In order to save the Traveler, the Guardian returns to Earth to assist in the counterattack. A corrupted Light is taken from the Guardian and used against Ghaul, but the Guardian is able to overcome Ghaul. In the form of a huge ethereal entity, Ghaul reappears and speaks directly to the Traveler. Awakened from its slumber, the Traveler has destroyed the apparatus that was gathering its power and killed Ghaul. All Guardians are restored to the Light, and the Red Legion’s armies are decimated.

All are reminded that Light can never be stopped in this final voiceover from the Speaker. In an intact part of the Tower with the Vanguard returning to their old responsibilities, the Guardian and Ghost meet with Zavala, Ikora, Cayde, and Hawthorne. The Traveler’s shockwave is seen to have reached the entire system in a post-credits sequence. Beyond the Milky Way and the Solar System, a fleet of dark, strange, pyramid-shaped ships in extragalactic space is visible in the beam of light.

Destiny 2 Gameplay

Getting experience points (EXP) will allow players to level up and improve their Guardians’ stats, much like in the original game. The more experience points a Guardian has, the better it will perform in battle. It has subsequently been replaced by a “season pass” system, where players utilize EXP to “rank up,” which rewards new stuff for each rank (while there is no max rank on a season pass, seasonal rewards end at level 100). In addition to the “main scenario” objectives, non-player characters (NPCs) provide the player with particular assignments that reward objects and experience points. Main scenario quest lines advance the overall story of the game by completing them.

The three character classes in Destiny 2 are the same as those in the original game. There are three sub-classes inside each class, allowing players to fine-tune their characters to suit their preferred playing style. Warlock, Hunter, and Titan are the three classes. Human, Awoken (bluish-gray-skinned descendants of Humans), or Exo are the three species players can choose for their character (humanoid machines). As a result, they can alter their characters’ gender or skin tone. The species of a character is just aesthetic and has no bearing on gameplay. In order to have a character of each class, players can create two additional characters.

Destiny 2 Release Date

Destiny 2 was published on September 6, 2017, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on October 24 for Microsoft Windows. A Collector’s Edition, a Limited Edition, a Digital Deluxe Edition, and the ordinary base game were all available. Destiny 2’s Expansion Pass, like the original, gives players access to the first two expansions of the game.
