The wait has been long, but it will all be worth it. According to Bungie, Destiny 2 will be able to keep gamers pre-occupied even after the sequel’s main story has been completed.
According to available data on the web, it would take roughly 12 hours to beat the main narrative of Bungie’s Destiny 2. Fans who have following news about the anticipated sequel know that the game is not over after the foes have been defeated and the world has been saved.
The community manager from Bungie, David Dague a.k.a. DeeJ, confirms that finishing the campaign will open more destinations and missions on the in-game map. For one, he detailed that players will be able to fully explore destinations and interact with characters after the main story has been completed.
“When you’re in a destination, you open the map and the map will be littered with all these different things you can do,” he tells Heavy. “You can go on adventures that will tell you more about those destinations and the characters that you’ll discover in those places.”
Destiny 2 offers more activities other than post-game raid. DeeJ also divulges that certain activities will be available to expand the gamer’s understanding of the world and, in return, get rewards. There will also be “Public Events” that will show up on the map instead of randomly appearing in a destination that players have to wander around to find.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg already spoke about the importance of opting for the premium copy of the awaited sequel. This will offer players more bang for the bucks thanks to the additional content. The game is also now available for PC gamers for the first time.
Is Destiny 2 a Direct Sequel?
In a separate interview, with BGR this time, DeeJ also discussed whether Destiny 2 is a reboot of the 2014 sci-fi shooter or a direct sequel. While the new game reintroduces and expands the universe introduced in the original, Deej says it is still a sequel that is meant to reset the world that people know and love.
He explains that the sequel is designed so that newcomers who thought it is too late to join the community will be able to go toe-to-toe with veteran players who have been with the franchise since the beginning. It is also created as the next step to the player experience especially with the addition of new content.
“We’re able to evolve just about every aspect of the way people enjoy playing Destiny,” he states. Destiny 2 is scheduled to arrive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on Sept. 6. For PC gamers, the game will be launched on Oct. 24.
