Destiny 2: Forsaken Stream Recaps and ImpressionsJason Love

I'll go ahead and say at the start of all this that while there aren't a ton of story spoilers in any of these videos, we do play through the entirety of the second campaign mission in the first video, talk about some story stuff in the second video, and then show off the Dreaming City in the fourth and fifth videos. If you're interested in thoughts/impressions on Destiny 2: Forsaken without seeing/knowing anything more than has already been revealed, then I'd skip those videos for now.

The Dreaming City is Destiny's "largest endgame experience ever" and features all the things you'd expect for a new raid: puzzles to solve, mysteries to decipher, and tons of enemies for you to use all your fancy armaments on.  Bungie also explicitly warns players that a terrible evil lies at the heart of the city, most likely to prevent any lawsuits stemming from unstoppable corruption of one's very soul.

Alright, so... I have a lot of thoughts on what Bungie's doing here, but front-and-center, I'm kind of annoyed that they're pulling a cheap narrative trick here. Want to get people invested in the game/story again? Kill a character off. I'm not saying it doesn't work, I'm just saying that this is a low move to pull. Anyways, I know one buddy who's excited to see Uldren "The Crow" Sov make his return to Destiny, so I guess that's something.

Before I go into too much depth with my own personal thoughts on what Bungie revealed/announced, here's a quick breakdown of what's coming when the Forsaken expansion hits on September 4:

I'm not entirely sure who Destiny 2 is for anymore, and if I'm being brutally honest, I can't tell if Bungie entirely knows either. One of the biggest issues a portion of players had with the original Destiny was that the progression to get to the Vault of Glass raid (the initial endgame content) was long and arduous. Based on the latest expansion, I guess there are a number of players that miss that kind of grind as it's relatively easy to get to the new Power Level "soft cap" of 345, but it is a very long road to get to the hard cap of 385 (or even the recommended level of 370 for the new Raid Lair and Escalation activity). Unless you're ready to have 2 alts that are both the same class as your "main" so you can freely share gear between them in order to bump up your Power Level and make the most out of those "Powerful Engrams" you get from the weekly activities, you're most likely not going to get anywhere near that 370 level for several weeks.

No hard details are known yet, aside from that "it will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies," which is as generic a statement that has ever been written. Bungie is saving the sweeter details for a Twitch livestream on April 24th, so we don't even know what the thing is about until then.

As 2017 (thankfully) draws to a close, we wanted to take a look at how Destiny 2 stands after some needed updates and the release of the first expansion. Games like these are ever-changing and shifting, but we wanted to put together our thoughts on it and try to answer the usual question that gets tossed about with this: “is it worth it?&rdqu...

The Dawning event starts today, December 19 at 12:00 pm EST and comes to an end at roughly the same time on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. It's open to all players regardless if you own the recent "Curse of Osiris" expansion or not. There will be a special weekly milestone added to the list of activities during this time, and completing that milestone will reward you with a special Dawning Engram that can be redeemed at Tess Everis' shop for some Dawning-themed gear. In addition to the gear, the "Mayhem" variant returns to the PvP-centered Crucible, and players will find piles of snow in Strikes that let you hurl snowballs at foes and stun them.

The new content may be the equivalent of, say, "The Taken King" for the original Destiny, but what's added is good and needed. As Bungie said in their blog post last week, there are those folks that want to be able to hop into the game as they please and find something fun to do. The "Infinite Forest" may play into this by introducing "Heroic Adventures," which are tougher variants of the three Adventures that become available after completing the story. These variants include adding modifiers, like "Prism" that rotates through the different elements (Sol, Arc, Void) and increases the damage of whichever is selected and decreases the damage of the others. While the Adventures end in a section that is either the past, present, or future of Mercury, the path to get there is slightly randomized and constructed from pre-fab building blocks. It's something Bungie calls "intelligent assembly" (instead of the familiar "procedurally generated"). As this is the first week of its release, it's tough to say whether or not these Adventures will be rotated out every week, but it would offer a new/fun endgame activity for folks if they do.

If you've already picked up the DLC, either by buying it directly or via the Season Pass, then you can start pre-loading that content now. Fair warning for console users, you may need to free up some space. The DLC requires 88 Gb of space on the PlayStation 4, and 44 Gb of space on the Xbox One. That new planet and new guns need room, man!

The initial rumors that were heard last month were spot on and the only real new bit of info is the release date (December 5 for every platform) and the increased Character/Power levels (25 and 330, respectively). When the DLC arrives next month, players will be able to head to Mercury, a planet that has only ever been a setting for PvP matches, to take on new quests/missions, hang out in a new social space (the Lighthouse), play new Strikes, puzzle through a new Raid, and enjoy new loot.
