New Destiny 2 gameplay offers a first look at one of the game’s strike missions, Inverted Spire, in which the alien race Vex are back for round two.
Strike missions take three players through challenging, dungeon-like adventures that result in better loot than standard story missions if players manage to conquer the boss at the end. The Strike format seems largely unchanged for the sequel, but Inverted Spire’s platforming sections and drill-based environmental hazards suggest an evolution in Destiny 2‘s Strike gameplay variety that was generally saved for raids in the previous game.
The gameplay is accompanied by commentary from project lead Mark Noseworthy, in which he discusses the new enemies and challenges players encounter throughout the mission, as well as the goals the developers had with Destiny 2‘s new series of Strikes.
The previous Destiny 2 gameplay took fans through the game’s very first story mission, with players fighting back a Cabal attack on the Last City. This was the first gameplay revealed for the game, giving fans their first look at many of the sequel’s new weapons, subclasses, and more.
Destiny 2 is slated to launch September 8th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming sometime later. Check out everything we know and still want to know about Destiny 2 is EGM’s full complete guide to everything we know so far.
