Bungie has announced a new version of Destiny 2 will be launching in South Korea later this year, and it will include a few changes to the shooter’s current formula.
According to the Naver Sports report on Bungie’s presentation, the upcoming Korean edition will be called Destiny: Guardians and will launch exclusively for PC on September 5th. It will act as a definitive version of the game by including all previous DLC, as well as the upcoming Forsaken expansion.
The announcement also teased a few differences between the current version of Destiny 2 and the upcoming Guardians edition. As seen in the image below, it seems a new character, Yuna, will be the face of the Eververse shop in the Korean version. Interestingly, according to translations of the announcement (via Eurogamer), Yuna’s shop will sell the “highest level of equipment,” meaning players in South Korea might find more gear available than just consumables and cosmetic items.
Currently, players can only purchase select items, such as skins and upgraded versions of vehicles, from Tess. While it’s unclear if this expansion of the shop’s offerings will make its way into the original version of the game, Bungie did confirm Guardians will run on Korean dedicated servers on Battle.net. This means, for example, players in the West won’t be able to hop into a Crucible match with those in South Korea.
However, one feature that will likely be extended to every player regardless of location will be the return of the Festival of the Lost. The developer teased the Halloween event during its presentation, which could mean Destiny 2 players will finally get a chance to enjoy the spooky challenges that were featured in the first Destiny.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Destiny: Guardians will launch on September 5th on PC.
