With Warmind‘s launch now behind it, Bungie has updated Destiny 2‘s development roadmap. While many of the upcoming features were previously revealed, the developer included a few surprises, including a system that will let Guardians provide feedback for PvP.
In Bungie’s latest blog post, the new roadmap of future content laid out what players can expect from now until September, with May 29th being the next update. As seen in the image below, the 1.2.1 patch will give Guardians their promised improvements to Faction Rallies, changes to Exotic armor, and a curious feature called Crucible Labs.
According to design lead Derek Carroll, Crucible Labs will “give you a peek behind the scenes and a louder voice in our creative process.” He explains further that the feature will be a testing ground for “experimental PvP content,” which players can access to give feedback before any new system is introduced to Crucible. Despite launching soon, Carroll also said more information on Crucible Labs will arrive before the 1.2.1 patch goes live.
As for the updates past May 29th, Guardians will finally have access to the Prestige versions of Eater of Worlds and Spire of Stars, which should provide more of a challenge and offer better rewards. This summer’s patch will also introduce a new seasonal event, Solstice of Heroes. “Guardians will celebrate their accomplishments and, of course, earn sweet rewards,” said game director Christopher Barrett.
Also, recently discovered in various posts on Bungie’s site were references to a new version of Arms Day from Destiny. It seems the feature, which locks players to a specific loadout to hunt for unique rewards, could be known as Arms Week moving forward. However, details are still limited, so players should wait for an official statement from the developer.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
