Destiny 2 Forsaken expansion has new game mode - out this September

Destiny 2 Forsaken expansion has new game mode - out this September

In terms of other features there will also be nine new Supers to unlock and a new bow and arrow weapon type.

"If you're a player of Destiny, this news won't impact the hobby you've come to know".

Following years of strife, what remains of the Reef has fallen to lawlessness. Designed with what one developer called a "Western revenge vibe", Forsaken brings the Guardians to a new zone called the Tangled Shore. New rules around weapons, armor, and character classes.

PvP and PvE will be "married" like never before which will be showcased the most through the new mode, the previously mentioned Gambit. It's really more of a montage, running through the basic details of the piles upon piles of changes that will be coming to the game this fall. While it wasn't made implicitly clear, it does appear that the Scorn are an all-new enemy race/faction to fight, changing our expectations of how we've come to do battle in Destiny 2. Two-handed hammers for Titans, electric teleportation for Warlocks, and. Forsaken also has a new Raid, the Dreaming City, which is the home city for the Awoken race. In Gambit, two teams of four will each be dropped into their own discrete maps where they will have to face off against a series of enemies, collecting and banking "motes" along the way to make things more hard for the other team.

This will add more grind to the game as the most hardcore players chase the best stats and drops, which is something that many of those players have wanted.

Bungie said the partnership will allow it to learn from NetEase's experience with smartphone games.

Going on to tease the Raid, Bungie says that this Raid has more bosses than any Raid before, and will now also shift and change based on the actions of the community.

Another interesting feature is the "Collections" an "Triumphs" which track everything you have collected and achieved in the game, for the achievers out there.

Destiny 2: Forsaken will release on September 4, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While Destiny 2 reserved shotguns and other heavy weapons for your "Power" slot, Forsaken will allow you to equip up to three shotguns at once, like some sort of insane person.
