The teasing is over: Destiny 2, a video game for which I am already brainstorming silly ledes, will be out September 8 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here’s the reveal trailer:
And here’s Bungie describing the game:
Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.
As we reported last year, this Destiny sequel is aiming to feel like a fresh start for Bungie’s ongoing franchise, which has picked up a great deal of baggage since it first launched in September of 2014. In addition to coming to PC, Destiny 2 will offer a clean break for everyone, leaving behind all of our old weapons and gear. There’ll be a beta this summer.
Because the day wouldn’t be complete without more teasing, Bungie says there’ll be a “gameplay premiere live stream” on May 18. Destiny 2 will also offer some sort of PlayStation-exclusive content, as the first game did—Sony says they’ll have more info on that over the summer.
