Destiny


 

At the beginning of Destiny 2, Dominus Ghaul—the game’s new antagonist—attacks the Tower and strips Guardians of their powers in an attempt to harness the Light, scattering the Vanguards to far and distant worlds, and it’s up to you to retrieve them. It’s a compelling setup—and a good excuse to reset everyone’s progress from the first game.

But while you may not be able to carry you previous character over from the first game, you will have the opportunity to build a brand new Titan, Hunter or Warlock with a new subclass each one is getting.

The Warlock Dawnblade can summon a flaming sword and rain energy down on enemies. The Titan Sentinel summons a Captain America-like shield that can be thrown or used in a powerful bash move. And the acrobatic Hunter Acrstrider summons a staff and goes full ninja with it.

Ghaul himself looks to be a different kind of villain—one who doesn’t want to destroy humanity necessarily, but only wants what he believes is coming to him, which is the Light. Putting the Guardians on the defensive and making them recapture what belongs to them makes for an interesting underdog angle, and it gives a new purpose to leveling up, finding better weapons, and mastering the new subclasses.

Destiny 2 will be available September 8th on Xbox One and PS4. The PC version does not yet have a release date.
