Destiny 2 was shown off today and… it looks like Destiny 1. If you loved the first you’ll probably love this one, but what about everyone else?
I wasn’t part of the Destiny hype. The first game was okay I guess, but it never pulled me into it’s world. The “story” was shit, but the gameplay was really smooth and I enjoyed playing with my friends for about a month before I moved on to the next game.
I wanted to see this gameplay reveal because Destiny 2 is coming to PC. I wanted to see if there was any improvements and what I saw was more of the same. I’m not interested in Destiny 2 at all after what I watched. It’s not for me and I would rather buy Shadow of War instead since they’re releasing pretty close to each other.
Destiny 2 doesn’t bring much to the table. We’re getting the exact same three classes that were in the last game, but they have access to one new class a piece. Destiny 2 will launch with new pvp modes (meh…), strikes, and ONE new raid. You’re only getting a single raid to hold you over until Bungie decides to drop new content that’s probably locked on the disc to begin with. Destiny 2… is more like Destiny 1.5 instead of a full sequel. It doesn’t look better graphically, has the exact same starting classes, gameplay, and shit that was in the first game. There is no improvement and I want nothing to do with it. Most people that buy this game will probably play through it in about 30 hours. There’s not much here to do unless Bungie adds more content before launch, but how much content is Destiny 2 going to get.
That’s not even the biggest issue with Destiny 2. The biggest issue (for me) is that it’s not launching on Steam. I only use Battle.net for Diablo III… and it looks like it’s going to stay that way because Destiny 2 is literally more of the same shit that I quit playing in the first game.
What did you think of the Destiny 2 reveal? Are you buying it?
Destiny 2 will release on September 8, 2017.
