Watch Destiny 2’s Homecoming mission in extended gameplay video
Bungie and Activision opened up their doors to the world yesterday with the first gameplay reveal for Destiny 2 and now another video from the event has arrived online, showing off the game’s first mission in full. Check out Destiny 2‘s Homecoming in the player below!
A key announcement during the livestream was about a new feature called “Guided Games,” which makes it easy for all players to experience the most challenging and rewarding activities the game has to offer. This new feature allows solo players to find and play with other players to enjoy Destiny 2 and earn new in-game rewards like weapons, and armor. Also available for attendees was “Countdown,” an all-new competitive multiplayer mode as well as a three-player cooperative activity on a new map called, “Inverted Spire.” In addition, the publisher has confirmed that when Destiny 2 arrives on PC this fall it will be through Blizzard’s Battle.net!
Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.
In Destiny 2 players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. Every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.
Destiny 2 will arrive on PlayStation 4 (with additional, timed exclusive content), Xbox One, and PC on September 8.
