Destiny


 

Amidst the many new features debuting in Destiny 2, the most exciting for solo players was no doubt the Guided Games system, which serves as Bungie’s answer to demand for matchmaking in the series’ raids and other high-level content. During the feature’s initial announcement, Bungie focused on support for on solo players queuing up to match with existing teams of five, but there may be hope Guided Games will allow pairs of players to seek out a fireteam, too.

The game’s project lead, Mark Noseworthy, shared on Twitter there was a specific purpose behind the Guided Games concept. “Our target: you can search with a friend to play the Raid via Guided Games,” he said. “Still testing though so it could change; but that’s the goal.”

Essentially, this means two friends looking to join a fireteam together could tag into an existing team of four, instead of having to play separately or find two to three more people to start their own clan. The idea of Guided Games is an excellent one, not only because throwing random strangers together for the more challenging missions can be a recipe for disaster, but also because many solo players have been unable to ever play a raid. Since the goal seems to be to bring more players to the Destiny fold, adding a way for pairs of friends to join in seems like a step in the right direction.

Destiny 2 launches September 8th, 2017 for PlayStaion 4 and Xbox One, as well as for PC at a later date.
