Bungie has introduced Destiny 2: Forsaken, the new expansion coming this fall bringing lots of new content and features to the online game.
Looks promising I must say. Let's hope it lives up to its expectations.
yeah. I'm pretty excited for it as well. Seems like they are moving in the right direction.
Do you know the definition of insanity? Its when you do the same thing over and over expecting change........ Do you know the definition of insanity?....
Before I tapped the link to this thread I said to myself "I could bet my last hundred dollar bill that someone would be in here to do exactly what they've been doing for the last 4 years, talk crap about a game they claim they hate and are done with, but some how still manage to show up in every news pertaining to it" and wouldn't you know it.... Here's Sam Fisher exemplifying his comment... 🤣. In any case on topic... They didn't do a deep dive into it's content but more or less glazed over key changes and updates going towards "Comet 2" expansion... So we know we're headed to the reef, it seems fallen themed yet again... From the looks of it, no prince Uldren insight (still waiting to see how they address this given we know he's alive via Warmind) new subclass trees, weapon changes, 6v6 match play list, new weapons mods and weapon rerolls. Smarter streamlined way of tracking and collecting gear, new game mode. Sam Fisher said the definition of insane is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different end result... Pretty sure these are considered sweeping changes and additions bringing what was already a solid sequel when it launched last fall. While CoO was a step back, they managed to address things with updates. So I guess the only insane person here is you and the bashers who say you're done with destiny but STILL here... Bring on September 4th. I'll be here for it
Somebody gotta do the dirty work for the others to sleep soundly
@Sam Fisher You mean like hate commenting about the game over and over and over again and expecting your opinion will make everyone stop playing the game?
I think thats exactely what he means.
You n4g peeps shit on ea but turn a blind side to the trash destiny anti consumer bull
it costs $40 with another $30 if you want the 'annual' pass, that's right, a DLC that has DLC and you have to have all the previous DLC first promising enough for you?
Seems reasonable based on the content. You get a major expansion plus 3 DLC content add ons.
This is separate from the "season pass" that came with the launch of the game for like 100 dollars? Year 2 is an additional "season pass "? Same as D1
You need to have all DLC, prices 40 for this or 70 if buy with the annual pass. That's what some are saying. This its the same deal like D1. Destiny 2 should have been launch with all the stuff that it will have with the Forsaken DLC. I have many doubts if this wasn't planned this way. Many doubts.
Looks promising, but I'm not paying anymore money to experience the game they should have made at launch. Bungie got me for the whole ride in D1, but I'm not falling for it again.
I am with you brother. Fool me once...
Same here... not this time. Oh bungie how you have fallen!
Looks good but like many others, I will pass until it's dirt cheap. Should have been a freebie to those of us with the season pass. They are "building something the community has been asking for"... doubtful. D2 DLC has been structured the same as D1...measly season pass content, then charge you for the content "everyone had been asking for based on feedback". Whatever.
And change the game so anyone without year 2 DLC can no longer play with just Year 1 content
I agree I think every game ever should launch with all future DLC and be free and the studios should all stop making money and go out of business and all the kiddies can go back to playing with their friends outside.
My problem is not charging money, it's making it basically non optional if you want to continue playing.
- Forsaken Adjective abandoned or deserted. Example "a journey into forgotten and forsaken places" Basically reflecting the franchise at this point
Nah. All the fans are hyped and its going to sell like hot cakes
Well to be fair, if you've stuck with Bungie throughout Destiny 2's first year, you'll happily bend over for them again. Will it sell like hot cakes? Well I'll be genuinely surprised if it sells anywhere near as well as TTK did.
Few That's the issue destiny fans keep saying now bungie will get it right no now bungie will get it right They have become so greedy
You say it like its a good thing
Papa, you're aware destiny 1 was in the exact same situation before TTK launched right? TTK sold like hotcakes because it fixed a ton of issues the community was vocal about leading up to the expacs release. Same exact scenario is playing out here. Two mediocre expacs followed by the huge one that fixes a ton of issues and revives the game. Further I would say Warmind is a much better release than the first two expacs d1 had, and it gives me hope that bungie is on the right path, not to mention they actually flew out youtubers vocal about the games problems to talk and try to pin down how to fix the problems. Almost EVERYTHING that people were vocal about was either fixed in Warmind (lack of endgame, exotics not feeling "exotic", ttk being lowered across the board in pvp) or is being fixed in the next expac (Weapons system changes, subclass variety, random rolls on weapons, gear collections, 6v6 qp, light level actually mattering in trials and IB, updated and more robust mod system, etc.) The hate bandwagon for bungie and the game is ridiculous, they're very receptive to community feedback and have fixed/are fixing literally every issue people have been vocal about. I feel the only people left complaining are people that have never played and just wanna jump on the bandwagon, or people that haven't played since around launch and just have no idea what's going on within the game now.
IDK man, when D1 came out I hung in there till TTK released. With D2, I was gone about 2-3 weeks after the First DLC because it was barebones. Came back to try DLC2 and although it's more then the first, it's still not enough to keep me engaged. A lot more players have left this game since launch then D1. I really hope Bungie gets it right, but I am not preordering this and at best will wait for long detailed reviews before I consider spending another penny on this franchise.
They should give us these expansions for free since the first two expansions we paid for were very lack luster with content and new features.
I didn't even realize that the Curse of Osiris DLC was part of the paid DLC/Season Pass. I thought it was just delayed for launch to motivate players to grow for a week or two before its release. Pretty lame that this type of DLC that should be core to the end-goal that players look for was a paid DLC that was developed before launch.
Why would they when they did the exact same thing with D1? At this point it’s a business model.
You would think if they we’re listening to their customers like they claimed to be, that they would understand this. Apparently not as it’s $40.
This stuff should have been here at launch. I don't mind spending money for content, I mind stripping everything D1 Y3 had and giving use a barebones D2 and now making us pay for what we already had in D1 for years.
Very excited. New mode sounds like Warzone. Which would be amazing in the Destiny universe.
Its only 4v4 think thats a shame tbh.
Fans: This 4v4 stuff in cruicible isn't working, it's causing logistical problems for our clan and fireteams Bungie: We hear you loud and clear, here is a new 4v4 mode Classic Bungie!
It looks very fun for how they are doing it though. Sending 1 guardian over to destroy a team after sending PVE bosses over too sounds pretty awesome. I was wrong saying it is like Warzone. It isn't at all. Very unique.
It sounds like warzone if you decreased the player size 3 times and shrunk the map size 10 times then kept the opposing teams separated for the majority of the match. Sound like something maybelovehate will love and the rest of gamers will be disappointed Bungie duped them into spending another 70$ for broken promises.
Just imagine leaving Vampyr, Yakuza 6 and Detroit, for another Bungie and Activision DLC.
That now has micros on top of an annual pass, dlc and expansions.
Adding all the money together...hmm looks like a 220+ game.
If we use previous releases as a base, they will release a $60 bundle of all D2Y1 + Forsaken ($90 with annual pass but if you didnt get the first pass, not sure why you would pay for this one)
I'm sure most people all ready bought said game along with first expansion for $90+. So your looking at a min of $160 plus for those that bought at release...
Can't be paying all that money again D1 at least there was some foundation to build on and even then i felt it a pull pay double a standard season pass ontop of my original 80pound investment. Again same situation only this time a game that still feels like its clawing its way back to D1 standard. Hell it feels beta with this kickstarter style roadmap lol a few quid more you can have this feature back from D1 etc. I don't know at the start the player base was massive hell even the first twitch stream was something to behold, seen 150k in twitch today watching livestream. Minute price came up for dlc , well can see that number in half aswell if they even all play. Thing is they still owe the people who brought the season pass and D2 a damn well apology cause as far as an AAA title goes this has been pathetic . Should not have to pay twice for what they owe us as players.
The first thing I thought of when playing the last DLC was: Are these just reskins of old enemies? FROM THE FIRST GAME?! Doesn't really look and play that different from Destiny 1. Sorry, but unless this is included with the season pass then I'm in otherwise no thanks. I'm not paying ANY more money for Destiny 2. The initial purchase was too much for the amount that I played it. Sorry but not a fan of what Bungie/Activision is doing with the series. Plus: Spiderman and Red Dead. They deserve my money MUCH more.
I will be buying both Spiderman and Red Dead for sure. But Spiderman I don't expect to get more than a week or two of gameplay. Which is fine. But yeah, finding time for Red Dead and Forsaken will be hard. But I am definitely going to try. Both look amazing.
so basically we are going back to destiny 1 taken king? it's frustrating that after launch of original destiny bungie still made the same mistakes with destiny 2. Now they are making the game more like original destiny and we should be thankful. I for am very glad there will be division 2 and anthem so bungie can simply release a average destiny 3 and call it a day still no matchmaking for raids in 2018 and we have lame excuses for why not when other games have shown/done better i am sure like taken king we are getting a 4-5 hour story than the same repetitive missions this is destiny 2's version of taken king in a perfect world this game will launch with 10-15 hours of story content matchmaking getting rid of MT so we can use the items as many times as we want better end game originally destiny was suppose to be gameplay: halo story/universe: mass effect loot: borderlands and we got only halo type(with improvements) gameplay Bungie are once again saying all the right things but let's see the end result. As gamers we all hope they have truly fixed everything that needed to be fixed and atleast make a effort to show they care about their fans
All bungie has done for the last year is disappoint and this will be no different. Play it a week get bored and remove from harddrive. This isn't the bungie that brought us halo and the first destiny. Those developers left or were pushed out during the final year of destiny developement like Marty and Joesph. Bungie was like thanks for all your hard work over the years, but don't let the door hit you in the a** on the way out. Bungie doesn't deserve my respect let alone my cash.
They are still not listening to fans.
How so, lol? The fans have said 4v4 sucks and what do we get a new mode and it is 4v4. Yeah they aren't listening or they don't give a s***..
@ DevilishSix Were your fingers in your ears when they said quickplay is going 6v6, Iron banner already is, only competitive will be 4v4 and Gambit and how does anyone know if Gambit is good or bad with fours if no ones played it yet outside of Bungie.
No word on fixing any of the issues the game has. How about we wanted new enemies since D1? How about new planets? How about better raids? How about end game content? How about enough with the PvP? How about more PvE? How about removing the eveverse? No, none of that. Here is a stupid fucking western themed something that no one asked for and only being released because of RDR2 and a PvP mode that they are trying to sell as PvE. How about missions in space where we get to fly our space ships so for once they aren't just decoration. How about letting us fly from one planet to the next manually and having encounters in space? I been asking for this and many others since D1? But no none of that. Fuck the fans, they just do whatever the hell they want. I have't touched D2 since last fall and this DLC is not bringing me back.
For someone who "hasn't touched D2 since last fall" you seem pretty bothered about it. You're also apparently another one who didn't watch the stream as they mentioned a new race of enemies almost from the start. "How about enough with the PVP", what does that even mean? People like you crack me up, if you spent less time bitching and moaning, making personal outlandish requests and towing the line for the hate train you might actually get to hear what they're doing.
A reskin is not a new race. They fucked up Destiny. They are lazy and been lazy since Destiny 1. Look at the taken, it's just a reskin but they call it a different race. People been asking for a new race since D1 but no. There isn't one and there isn't one in this. There are a million things people been asking for but they keep ignoring it. People want PvE stuff in Destiny where we can play together to bring down the enemies. People want enjoyable strikes and raids but we get lazy sruff thrown together. Resued locations, reused reskinned enemies. I've been keeping an eye on Destiny because I l'm looking for a reason to go back since I have about 300hours in D2 and over a 1000 in D1. But still, D1 is better than D2. D2 felt like an add on to D1 rather than a sequel. Also, the story of Destiny which could have been awesome is pretty shit at the moment.
You're wrong the new race is not a reskin, as for Taken they never were supposed to be a new race they are Taken i.e. an existing race Taken and corrupted by Oryx. They can't address a million request and to expect them to is ridiculous and points to the entitled attitude of the gaming community, but to act as if they haven't addressed anything because you didn't get your space battles is flat out false. The one thing I will agree with you on is that D1 was better than D2 but remember how long it took to get there and dont forget people bitched like you do to the very end regardless, maybe if you stop trying to impress the cool kids haters club and give the game a chance you'll see the improvements. But since you apparently can do it better than Bungie can I look forward to your game, whens it coming out?
So let me get this straight. The eververse was for content that is free for players but now there is annual pass, season pass and expansion for the fall....wtf
At this point anyone who supports this, deserves what they get.
Unfortunately I won't be purchasing any more D2 DLC. The last two were mediocre at best.
I bet they riddle it with microtransactions.
So like pretty much every other game out there, ok got it.
Haha except they don't charge you $40 for DLC, lock the vanilla game all over and force you buy all DLC or re-buy the game at full price again.
"Cant wait for bungie to skullfook me and leave my rectum bloody on sept 4! we love you Deej"- average destiny fan
"I have to buy new DLC with anal pass! Ups I meant annual pass"
It looks great, but I can't for the life of me shell out more money on this game. Especially given the Sept launch with a ton of releases coming Sept-Nov.
do people still play this game
Do people still say this?
The entire Destiny franchise is designed to have a pay structure similar to an MMO, they just do it via annual passes and smaller DLC content. But really if you break down the entirety of what you pay, you are paying monthly to keep your Destiny gaming experience alive
They missed year of the bow by a few years, lol.
Honestly looks pretty solid, especially the new game mode. Having said that, I still can't shake the fact that we are in the exact same boat as D1. Why do we have to wait a year and spend $140 to get the whole experience (random weapon rolls, bounties). Really, it is turning into something you just wait three years to play when the collection releases for $40. Still, considering the price tag and the fact that there is no physical release this time, I may wait for a final collection to release.
