Destiny 2 is Coming, Here’s What We Know So Far

Destiny 2

Destiny 2 will hit the shelves this year and there is a lot to talk about the sequel to the somewhat critically criticized bigger brother, Destiny 1. There’s a lot of room to improve and with PC now in the equation, the game is off to a very different start from its predecessor.

The previous destiny game was only available on the Xbox 360 and with the upgraded hardware of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (and PRO) as well as the upcoming Xbox Scorpio, along with a PC release, we’re going to be seeing some gnarly changes in the game’s internal and external feel.

The visuals will be much better along with a much more stable frame rate on the consoles -even though it’s still 30 FPS- and much more room to work with for the developers. For the PC side however, unlocked frame rates, high visual fidelity and resolution support and a lot more, making it a good addition to your game library.

More to do than just patrols in the vast worlds

Bungie is working on making Destiny 2 a much more modernized game which is much less mundane and boring than its bigger brother. Destiny 1 had worlds which were mostly good for Patrols and quite repetitive for that matter. The developers have tried to change that and tried to introduce a larger emphasis on exploration.

Four new worlds will be featured in the release of their latest IP, which are Titan, Io, Nessus, and Earth’s European Dead Zone. While there will still be patrols, Bungie decided it was best to focus a lot more on exploration and discoveries including NPCs which can give you side quests and extra missions to perform on certain planets.

There will also be less redundancy in terms of the general player interactivity between the game; you will no longer be required to go into orbit every time you want to change your locations; this can now be done directly and you can now even choose your destinations from your current location.

One of the most exciting part is a promise for much more robust and promising side missions, known as Adventures. You’ll be able hunt down treasure chests on the map, explore lost sectors in the game and fight epic boss battles to get the treasure key.

Content definitely seemed to have improved from last time and we can owe it to more powerful hardware and the change in current market trends. The biggest reason to actually skim your wallet for destiny 2 money is the fact that the game is ever evolving and more content is added quite often, keeping the game fresh and a perfect way of scooping together your friends and going on raids.

Destiny 2 on PC will be a blast with complete support and more

While we don’t know much about the PC version of the game already, we do know that the game will be running without any caps and will have high resolution support. The game will also be running on the Battle.net platform and will not be coming for Steam, unfortunately.

We will be seeing support for up to 4K resolution for the PC version which has been confirmed and no limits to the FPS. We will still have to wait till E3 2017 to get the complete breakdown of the PC performance and possibly even the PC requirements to run Destiny 2.

The experience of the game PC will definitely not be a new one. PC gamers have had many MMO games in the past and have had them for decades. World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Eve Online and more and the fans of the genre will have absolutely no trouble adjusting to the game. In fact, the market has been ever expanding and PC is a great platform to invest in.

Already Bungie has partnered up with Razer to bring some very unique themed hardware with the game’s release so close. Other companies will also follow suit seeing the great potential to sell merchandise and accessories.

The overall experience on the PC will undoubtedly be unmatched by the console one. If only the game is well optimized and makes a nice first impression.
