Destiny 2‘s Red Legion- a formidable faction of the series’ Cabal race- are on display in the latest IGN First video, hosted by combatants design lead Tomonori Kinoshita.
Lead by the sequel’s primary antagonist Ghaul, the Red Legion is stacked with enemy varieties that are not to be trifled with. The Legionary and Phalanx are returning from the first game, updated for the sequel with new gear and abilities, like the Phalanx’s shield which can now extend to cover its allies. The Red Legion boasts several new enemies as well, such as the Gladiator that wields dual Cleavers to relentlessly harass players at close distances, and the War Beasts that hunt in packs to swarm targets.
Fans can check out these enemies and more in the video below.
Previous Destiny 2-themed IGN First videos covered two separate Crucible maps, as well as the sequel’s new social space, changes made to the Control Crucible mode, and a teaser for one of the game’s first explorable planets. Some of these features players are now discovering for themselves in the current beta, in which the community has already discovered a secret area.
Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release date of October 24th.
