Destiny 2's Battlenet Availability & PC Launch

Watch Destiny 2’s gameplay reveal here at 6pm GMT

Not much is known about Destiny 2 but what from what I gather by watching all of Bungie's livestreams and doing my own due diligence it appears that what we were used to with Destiny will be a lot different this time around.

In the course of the invasion, the Destiny 2 official gameplay trailer unveiled new weapons, new locations and new Supers.

Blizzard was also squishy about PC release specifics in a FAQ regarding the game's release on (which is supposedly actually called the Blizzard app now, even though no one calls it that). I had some pretty positive experiences using things like DestinyLFG and even the forums to play through that stuff in Destiny, so this is a solution for which I'm cautiously optimistic.

Back in March we showed you the first trailer for Destiny 2, Activision and Bungie's follow-up to 2014's ambitious shared-world, multiplayer sci-fi shooter, Destiny, the most expensive video game ever created, with a staggering pricetag of almost a half-billion dollars. While Bungie has promised dramatic improvements to the game, we're yet to see any actual gameplay - although that's about to change.

"Players will also be able to add friends and form parties the same way Blizzard gamers can".

Destiny 2 is a forthcoming online-only multiplayer title that's the direct sequel of 2014's Destiny. This is considered to be a smart move in financial terms, since services already possessed a large player base focusing on PC and MMO games.

Every (team) mode is 4v4 now instead of 6v6. You can find all the information about the new Clan additions and Guided Games feature here.

"Destiny established a blockbuster, new franchise and a massive global community of amazingly passionate fans". Firstly, there is no release date for Destiny 2 PC, meaning that it may be delayed. There will be an FOV slider in the game at launch, along with support for 21:9 ultra-wide displays. It is your job, your guardians job, to take back that light and learn how to build yourself back up after everything you had was lost.

Weapon slots have been adjusted from the Primary, Special, and Heavy classifications to Kinetic, Energy, and Power respectively.

Destiny 2 will launch on September 8, 2017 at PS4, XboxOne and PC. We know that they didn't do this the first time around. Players will not only lose their powers but their city.
