Destiny 2 To Get A “New Style Of Play”, Revealed At E3

Next week will see the launch of the Warmind expansion for Destiny 2 and it will bring many lapsed players back to the game, if only because they ponied up and bought the season pass when the game launched and get the expansion by default. However, it’s not unfair to say that between the large expansion launches the reasons to return to Destiny 2 are few.

In an Earnings Call Activision’s Collister Johnson explained that “top Destiny players” had visited Bungie and tried the Warmind expansion and had a sneaky look at the big content drop coming this autumn, all of which gained a “very positive response.”

“But even more of what’s coming this fall into the innovations and gameplay there, including to what we think will be an incredibly engaging new mode, one that introduces a whole new style of play for first-person shooter gaming generally and certainly for the shooter space that Destiny created,” he added. “It’s a really exciting development. It’s one of the things that we feel really speak to the community when it comes out in the fall, and we’re really excited to share more about that. We won’t do that until E3. ”

This big content update, whatever it is, won’t be part of the season pass, that ends with Warmind, so persuading lapsed players to buy back in to game is going to be hard. Does anyone think that this “incredibly engaging mode” might begin with the letters B and R?

  1. Looking forward to Destiny 2: Guardian Royale.

    • You beat me to it. It’s a shame to see Destiny in the state it’s in. I buried so many hours in the first game. Haven’t really played Destiny 2 since Christmas.

      Am I the only one who thinks that Activision is preventing Bungie making the game they really want?

    No sh*t, why didn’t they invite some destiny critics or old fans who left the game, to see if the new content is any good?
    Of course diehard destiny players are going to love it.

    • They did invite a lot of people who were fans, but who heavily criticised and stopped playing/streaming the game – Goth, TripleWreck, etc. So it comes down to whether you can accept the good things they’re saying, given that they had an all-expenses trip and have a vested interest in the game if it has a Taken King-style revival.

    • AKA people who Activision pay to say nice things about Destiny when they are streaming.

      Shep is right, they really should have asked ‘normal’ gamers who have stopped playing, not those who are part of the industry and make money from it.
