Destiny 2’s new trailer, plus everything we know so far

Bungie’s live show of dancing lights and bullets has ended, so let’s look at what we’ve learned about Destiny 2 [official site]. Story-wise, the Guardians have been ousted from their comfortable penthouse suite by a surprise attack and are scattered across the solar system, having lost all their powers. On top of that, the giant Christmas tree decoration they call the Traveler has been stolen. It’s your job to “get the band back together”. You’ve got some new character powers, multiplayer modes and the ability to join clans. You’ll also be touching down on new planets, where you can shoot hundreds of bullets into bad things. But there’s a new trailer below, for a taste of all that.

In more irksome news, it’s going to be exclusive to Blizzard’s game launcher, the Digital Distribution Platform Formerly Known As Battle.net. That means no Steam release or other storefront. Thanks, Activision. Thactivision.

Destiny 2 will be shown off tomorrow in livestream

All right, destinerds, settle down. Since its unsurprising “reveal” trailer we’ve known that the sci-fi FPS is set for the PC. But what manner of manshoots are thou, Destiny 2? Bungie are answering that question tomorrow with a demonstration of the game, broadcast live into your eyeballs from some airplane hangar in California. It’s happening at 6pm BST (10am PDT/1pm EDT) and you can watch it on their official website or from their Twitch stream.

Destiny 2 coming to PC for deffo, says fresh trailer

Alien murderthon Destiny 2 [official site] is coming to PC for real. You know what that means: no more qualifying all our news posts with “but this is just a rumour.” Hooray! The news comes as part of a “reveal trailer” which is a stupid name for a trailer when there has already been a video showing its existence. That and the shooter was officially revealed by a tweeted logo earlier this week. But never mind, let’s take a look at what we can expect from the MMO-ish sequel in the video, found in the nether regions of this post.

Destiny 2 offers teaser trailer for other, longer trailer

A “reveal trailer” due to come out on March 30 for Destiny 2 [official site] has got its own smaller trailer, because that’s what happens in this, the dying age of humanity. It’s got some Nathan Fillion in it though, voicing the robot japer Cayde-6, a character you might remember from the first game’s Taken King DLC if you are an original Destonerd. We’re telling you all this because we are banking on the sequel coming to PC, following some strong rumours. Anyway, you can watch the trailer for the trailer below.

Destiny 2 announced, but why do we care?

Destiny 2 has been officially announced by Bungie via a tweet from an official account. This was always pretty much guaranteed, given the success of the first game. But why do we care on our illustrious PC-only website? Because it might well be coming to PC as well as PlayStations and Xbones, according to some previous rumours. Those are just rumours for now but we’re posting about it anyway, because we don’t want to be left out of the party. In other words, we’re hedging our news-bets.

What We Would Like From Destiny 2

According to “several sources” Destiny 2 may be coming to PC. “You played a bunch of Destiny, didn’t you?” said Graham in work chat. I looked at my inbox which contains ongoing discussion of when everyone might be ready to do the new raid, thought longingly of the PS4 downstairs tempting me with its Archon’s Forge quest shenanigans, cast an eye over my bookshelf which contains a spare copy of the base game which I can’t remember why I own but it’s a good “just in case” precaution and cautiously replied “I fucking love Destiny.”

That is how I found myself writing this here “What We’d Want From Destiny 2” post.

Ghostly Rumours: Destiny 2 On PC?

GOSSIP. TITTLE-TATTLE. RUMOUR. The basest of base discussion, as your mum told the postman in the sauna the other day. At least, that’s what I hear. I also hear that maybe, just maybe, console online FPS-come-hamster-wheel Destiny [official site] might be incorporating PC into its sequel plans.
