Destiny 2

We knew it was coming, and here it is. Our first trailer for Destiny 2. The stakes are clearly high, as Titan Vanguard Zavala will inform you. But thanks to Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6, there’s plenty of levity headed our way as well.

“There Will Be a Ton of Loot!”

There’s zero gameplay to be found in today’s trailer. But that doesn’t take away from some fun and impressive moments packed in the 2 minute clip. Bungie labels the game as “an action shooter that takes you on an epic journey across the solar system.” Hopefully it is epic indeed.

Courtesy of Bungie, the story is as follows:

“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.”

It sounds like Destiny 2 is poised to be a true sequel, and not a reskin “build on” from the original. Activision and Bungie are planning a gameplay premiere event on May 18th. It’s there that we’re sure to get more answers.

The duo are also planning a beta for the title. Consumers that preorder the game will get early access. You can check that out here if you’re interested. Until May 18th, my friends…

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
