Tonight, Bungie revealed the first gameplay footage from Destiny 2, due out in September. And bravo, Bungie, it looks absolutely magnificent.
I like Destiny, but Destiny 2 looks to have a much needed injection of story direction, character and set piece epicness to it. If it can keep that going, and combine it with the addictive shoot and loot gameplay, slightly bolster the multiplayer with more features, and come out the door with a decent amount to do, Then i think D2 can be the sequel it needs to be!
it looks like original destiny and still runs at 30fps. Both CoD and BF1 look much better and run at 60fps. In 2017, destiny 2 has 4 vs 4 in MP and runs at 30fps. We had more player count in 1998. How lazy these devs are. It's ridiculous. Copy and paste job has been a staple of modern devs.
Am getting it on PC, PC uncapped fps
I hated Activision and Bungie's greedy and bone idle approach to Destiny when it released. I don't care if they made up for a little bit of the contempt they showed to customers in the subsequent EXPENSIVE expansion packs. Bungie sold their soul (if there was such a thing) to Activision and for that I will never buy a game from Bungie while they are still in business with Activision again.
Now COD look better. I've heard it all now. Is COD open world? Why wouldn't it look like the first one? You expected this to change the game completly? The gameplay is the best thing about it and the controls are smooth as silk. Millions of people still enjoy this game. Just because you don't doesn't changed that fact. If you don't like the game then pick something else. Looks like COD and Battlefield can keep you occupied.
@Tussin187 nice try fool but i dont give one tosss about campaign. Competitive MP game or crucible Player VS Player as its called is NOT open world in destiny. In BF1 the maps are larger than Destiny maps in MP. Yet it can deliver 60fps with way more things happening on screen. 4 vs 4 player in destiny with smaller maps than original and yet its still 30fps is a joke and pure lazyness.
lol boomtube... Some people care more about how fun a game is to play than they do about counting pixels or frames. The game looks amazing, and after the hundreds upon hundreds of hours I've spent in Destiny, I can't wait for it. I wouldn't have cared if they said it was going to be 720p and still runs on the 360 and PS3 as well.
4v4 is a design decision, not a limitation.
@UnHoly_One lol fool Tell that to CoD. Without 60fps it wouldnt be much. Even the devs said it. Its their religion. 60fps is super critical. Frame rate matters in Multiplayer. I rather have higher frame rate than higher resolution. Higher frame rate also reduces the MS lag which can be a major issue in online match when every milliseconds counts.
Is this a "How to.." comment for trying but failing to sound like you know what youre talking about? Cuz that's what I got out of it.
Destiny has a lot of design flaws and very... "dubious" business decisions, but come on... There's simlpy nothing lazy about this game. It plays and works extremely well.
ok, but og Destiny running at 30 fps was really fun so what is your point ? Does something being 30 fps make it not good or not fun ?
I will wait for the legendary edition with all DLC for €39,99 next year. They did it many times, they will do it again
I said the same thing about the first Destiny. Then they released the game with all the DLC. I then said, "oh, I'll just wait for it to go on sale". .....I still haven't played Destiny. ....maybe I will pick up Destiny 2 when it comes out with all the DLC....
And you will probably have no where near as much fun as everybody who played all the new content when it releases and is actually relevant just like the first game. This is not the same as Fallout GOTY Edition. It is more like buy the new, relevant content and get all the irrelevant, old unsupported content no body else cares about for free. If you wait you miss experiences. Unless of course you literally only do the main missions and participate in nothing the game offers. Anyways doubt I am getting this at all, it looks so underwhelming.
@Lawson I really don't care. The first Destiny burned me hard on launch, ain't gonna happen again. Besides, I have enough to play this year. My friends do the same thing, I wasn't really blown away by the reveal. I can wait.
I've watched the first strike and it looks like Destiny. That's good for some. Personally, I need to see how it's different. Right now, it doesn't look different at all.
Why would they dramatically change the sequel to a billion dollar game.if you didnt like the first game just move on you are not going to like this one.
Who said anything about dramatic changes, let alone to the gunplay? I'm talking about design, loot, and similar items. Items they've said nothing about so far. Will we ever get the original Destiny concept of selecting upgrades for our exotic weapons that truly change how they work from one person to another (pre beta Destiny was all about this)? Will loot be extremely dependent on just RNG or are they going to, once again, listen to the Blizzard developers on the subject? Will Powers be easily swappable or will there be opportunities to specialize? How will the content be laid out, will it be more dynamic in structure or the same week to week minor adjustments of the game content? Will they lock out progression on a weekly basis? How will weapon leveling work differently, if at all? Etc.
I was hella annoyed when I saw that the grenades were exactly the same. Pretty stupid to me.
I can make a smarmy joke of a comment to devalue the conversation.
I really hope the missions are more varied and cinematic and interesting
Why do you hate to admit that? A developer trying to make a sequel better than the first should be commended. Were you hoping it'd fail?
I know right? The title of this story purely shows what kind of toxic person this writer is
Woah toxic? Can't the person be labeled as a realist, or doubtful. Toxic is too harsh to a person that has reason since bungie did mess up the first one, did they fix on the later run? That differs opinion but to say that a person is toxic when that person has legit reason is a bit harsh
What? It looks just like the first one.
What?! A sequel looks like it's predecessor?! Who would do such a thing?!
I know right? That's such a stupid argument. It's like complaining that the Batman games are similar.
I think his point is that it doesn't look like they added anything. You sound like the guy who thinks Saw 3 is better than Saw 5. Who cares
Don't be dumb. It's like comparing Uncharted 3 to Uncharted 4. It's night and day.
You guys are idiots. What we saw does not correlate at all with the headline of the article.
@TejasTV I think every saw film is crap. I did not go see them/buy them and I did not go into comment sections complaining because I think saw should be different or because I think they are crap. I said this is not my cup of tea and went on with my life. @Forn PS3 vs PS4 ... yes, there should be enhancements with the engine but the core of the game is still the same.
If its going to be the same then it might as well be a Destiny 1 dlc
4k game changer lol
Injustice 2 is the same as the first one, its just super hero characters fighting...
Injustice 2 looks way better graphically though.
No it doesnt. After the inicial reveal and the end of the hype, gamers that played the game are saying that is the same thing. With no evolution. It feels like a DLC and not a evolution from a game launched at 2014.
It looks like DLC or just an expansion.
Loses powers proceeds to give powers back in beginning of the game
Exactly. Looks like a reskin with some new maps. What's worse is there are no changes big enough to warrent getting rid of or not allowing any carry over. The game engine isnt that different and as graphically they ignored the refresh consoles added power why cant I just keep my old gear? Oh!!!! Because now you can charge me full price again for the game....got it.
Isn't this what people said about Destiny before it was released? Red flag alert. Activision. Enough said.
Yeah, I think people would do well to remember that Acti/Bungie have proven to be very good at hyping up Destiny last time. I can't imagine people being this excited by the exact same game though, but that is not for me to judge.
Lol u can't be serious.. It's the same ol bs https://youtu.be/ViAUxQ6h5E...
Looks like its just a huge expansion that couldve just been added for the previous game and no huge changes worthy of a sequel for a AAA game like this, just another cash grab from activision but hey the games still not out yet so I wont judge it much for now. I mean alot of the animations, voice clips, sound effects, graphics, and the feel seemed to have just been copy and paste, they couldve at least added a new class too making it a 4 plyr co op instead of just 3.Hopefully the beta will satisfy me. Might move to pc with that uncapped framerate that shouldve really been put on console, sad 60fps hasnt been standard for big shooters yet.
Why do you hate to admit it? That makes zero sense. Generally people like giving good news.
Writer seems like just another toxic member of the gaming community.
How is he toxic? Cuz he has an opinion? Tired of hearing, "gamers are toxic," well so are movie buffs, sports fans, card collectors, and any hobby that has a lot of fans.
Well it's his opinion and it is warranted. What have they really added. A 4th weapon slot. New gear. A new super. The story doesn't even align with the gameplay. Neither does the lore leading up to its release. The tower was attacked and the traveller was captured removing the light and powers from the guardians along with their gear. We start with powers. And what looks to be full levels (at least lol 20) the strike didn't even have an experience bar so it looks like 20 is still the cap before light levels come in. And don't get me started on the guided games. I would not want to be a part of the team that gets a random first time raider in my party when that shit was hard enough with 6 people who knew what their role was. Also they better make sure the raids need all 6 people to actually complete. Non of this solo running stuff. Make it so that 6 different tiles or mechanics needs to be activated to advance through the raid. Don't just make a case of being the best shooter and most maneuverable. Make them actual puzzles that the entire team needs to work with aka the beginning of VoG
meh.. I reserve the right to hold judgement until I actually play the full game myself. Destiny looked to have a bunch of hype and promise too.. and we all know how that turned out. I am hopeful that Bungie has learned their lesson at least and can provide us a more cohesive experience from day one.
It turned out successful with a rather large attachment for 3 years.
it drip-fed content to us at a snails pace. Everytime an expansion came along, we played it for a few weeks, then got bored of it and had to wait months for the next bit of content. Believe me, I am a year 1 player with just under 1000 hours of playtime.
@Neonridr That's the point of the game. If you put a 1000 hours into the game, then you found stuff to do. You were not forced to put in 1000 hours. But it still was a success. They will, once again, drip feed the game, have events, etc... that is the game. How well they do it this time around is yet to be seen.
Always been my favorite beef with destiny.. how'd you play 1000h with no content? Lol.. many of us played this game like it was a second job, we would blow through ANYTHING released in a matter of a day or two.. that's not really on them
Looks just like another boring FPS to me
What is an exciting fps?
There isnt one
Why not just keep the name the same just have it replace D1, since it's basically the next update and dlc. Like there were no actual changes to the engine, graphics/models, or frame rate.
I think it just looks like an expansion from the first game, doesn't look like much was added to the gameplay.
What a stupid title! You hate to admit it? It just shows you're a sheep who often feels sorry for themselves...like for feeling a video game is not up to their standards. G-dam entitled Millenials
You are complaining about people having standards for video games while complaining about an article title which is presumably below your standard for titles. don't be a hypocrite. just because something doesn't meet your standard doesn't exactly make you an entitled millennial.
Destiny 1 looked good in 2014. we all know how that turned out. this looks to repeat that trend.
I can't speak to how it turned out for you, but it turned out pretty well for me and many others. I dropped hundreds of hours into Destiny. I was sufficiently entertained for the money I spent. Being sufficiently entertained is pretty much the sole metric by which I measure a game's success.
I spent hundreds of hours on destiny's crucible mode. But are we really going to argue that destiny's launch was amazing and that the campaign wasn't boring?
I said nothing about the launch, and "boring" is a subjective term.
Do you still play destiny a lot right now? Not caring about updates or any extra releases? D1 was fun and unique at the time, but now that I know what to expect regarding support and experiences over the entire game and what it all means I'm not sure I want to give it another go.
I shifted my focus from the PS4 to the PC several months back, so I haven't played Destiny for a while, but I got my money's worth out of it, and I'll play Destiny 2 on Battle.net.
So another success. Awesome
