BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Fans are feverishly waiting for Destiny 2, a sequel for the popular space shooter that, according to a statement by Activision, should come out this year. Also, the developer Bungie revealed that the first game was going to close, but they revealed some information regarding the sequel.
Bungie say that they will reveal the last live event for Destiny, called the Age of Triumph, on March 8th. They advise all diehard Destiny fans not to miss the event, since it will be a memorable celebration and the perfect way to close the beautiful chapter that constituted the first game.
On March 15th, they will launch the weekly rituals for Age of Triumph and, on March 22nd, the sandbox update for the last live event.
Bungie also approached the question that had bugged most Destiny fans. The question is, will they be able to carry on with their Destiny characters in the sequel? Unfortunately for them, they will be able to do this only partly.
Only those players who have already reached Level 20 in Destiny will be able to transfer the race, face, hair, gender, class, and the marking selections of their characters to the sequel. Also, Bungie revealed that they were planning to offer special honors to veteran Destiny players that would display the achievements they had gathered over time.
Besides this, nothing else can be moved from the first game to the other one. Thus, the level, unlocked skills, gears, weapons, and the accumulated currency will have to stay in the first game. Thus, any player, both old and new, will be able to start Destiny 2 with clean slates and everybody can start with even chances.
On this sequel, players can go on new adventures, discover new loot, and explore new worlds and stories. Bungie decided not to transfer content from the old game so that they could focus on improvements.
This decision might not be so welcome by veteran players who spent many hours gathering loot and acquiring armors and weapons. However, it is a fresh new start that offers the new players the chance to start on the same line as the more experienced ones, without feeling left behind.
The official release date of Destiny 2 has not been made public yet, but Bungie might reveal it soon after rolling out Age of Triumph.
