Destiny 2 Plans Include Eververse Changes

A new Destiny 2 Development Update has details from Bungie on plans to update their first-person shooter sequel (thanks GameInformer). This is about action, saying "we’re not just listening, we are doing," though they warn "the further out we make promises, the more they are subject to change." They lay out the future content that will be available to all, content that will be exclusive to expansions, changes to XP rates to relieve the grind, and more, offering specific details on three upcoming updates, the first of which is expected at the end of this month. They also reaffirm their commitment to improve their communication with the community going forward. Perhaps of greatest interest is their plans for changes to the distribution of the game's controversial Eververse content:

Eververse
We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards. So, we’ll be making three changes for upcoming Seasons:

  • We’re shifting the balance of new content in favor of activity rewards over Bright Engrams. This includes adding Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships (to date found only in Bright Engrams) to achievement reward pools.
  • We'll provide a gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams).
  • We’ll give players more direct purchase options and make adjustments to Bright Engrams to allow players to get the items they want more often.

We’ve begun implementing these changes for the Crimson Days event beginning February 13 (with even more changes on the way in Season 3):

  • Completing Nightfall, Raid, and Crimson Days milestones during Crimson Days will reward you an exclusive Legendary Emote, Weapon Skin, and Exotic Sparrow, respectively.
  • Players will earn double engrams at level-up: one Crimson Engram and one Illuminated Engram for the duration of the event.
  • Crimson Engrams can also drop from completing the Crimson Days match and from completing the Crimson Days milestone on each character.
  • Each Crimson Engram is very strongly weighted to new rewards when decrypted until all new event items have been obtained.

Destiny. Destiny never changes.

Bungie is now the poster child for half-baked games released one year before they should of been.

I see what you did there...


The real tragedy is that the core shooting mechanics of this game are fantastic; the garbage microtransaction system and siloing of the Development and Live teams is just so ridiculous it's almost comical.

I like how the game promotes fireteam play in PvE now, but, wow, all trey really needed to do was simply tune and tweak Year 3 D1, not toss the baby out with the bathwater and give us a Kinderguardian version of the game.

Not that I have an opinion or anything...

    This monetization practice needs to stop.

    It's bad enough already that people spend their time indulging in an escapism habit of playing video games to simulate a sense of achievement, bringing no real value to them but only to fill the gap created by sitting at home and imagining a great life until they wake up and face reality again; a reality without action; corporations taking advantage of their bad habits.

    You do realize this is a gaming news website for, uh, gamers, right?

    These games are just schemes to guide all the players to the online vendors. They make no attempts at all to hide this. It is the sole purpose of the "game". It is the most moronic thing I have ever seen people pay to participate in. You pay 60 dollars for the right to visit an online vendor to buy things that have no value outside of the line you paid 60 dollars to stand in.

    Lol, well said!

    *cough*bullshit*cough*

    The only thing out of all of this that you never intended was for players to get fed up with your endless greed.

    Yep, that's all there is to do in the game, stand in line at the vendor with your credit card out. No shooting or looting or adventures of any kind, all that turned out to be marketing lies! Rolleyes

    You shoot something, which gives you loot. Which then ,again, takes you to the line.
