Destiny 2: Forsaken Announced

Bungie, High Moon Studios, and Activision announce Destiny 2: Forsaken, a first expansion for Destiny 2, will come to the first-person shooter on September 4th. This will include a new gameplay mode called Gambit which they say they will unveil for the first time next week at E3. This reveal trailer features the developers discussing the news, and there are details in the announcement:
Bungie, High Moon Studios and Activision, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), revealed today that Destiny 2: Forsaken, the first major expansion of the award-winning Destiny 2 video game, will release worldwide on September 4, 2018. Destiny 2: Forsaken will be available for download on PlayStation®4, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and PC. The PC version of the expansion will be available exclusively on Battle.net®, Blizzard Entertainment's acclaimed online-gaming platform.

With two brand-new destinations to explore, and new weapons, armor and Supers to acquire, Forsaken takes players on an epic journey into the wild frontiers of our solar system where the lines between justice and revenge are blurred. Forsaken also features an all-new competitive and collaborative endgame activity, called Gambit. A first-of-its kind for Destiny, Gambit is a new, hybrid 4v4 mode that merges both PvE and PvP experiences into an epic battle. This entirely new way to play Destiny 2 offers something for all types of gamers to enjoy, appealing to those who thrive on the competitive challenge of PvP gameplay, while seamlessly blending the collaborative and unpredictable elements of PvE. This new mode will be playable at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) held from June 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

“Since the launch of the Destiny franchise, we have always strived to create innovative experiences that will challenge and reward different kinds of players and ensure their beloved pastime is rewarding,” said Scott Taylor, Project Lead at Bungie. He added, “We can’t wait to share Forsaken’s new Gambit mode with our fans and offer them a new way to play that can be enjoyed competitively and cooperatively.”

“With an absorbing new story, created by High Moon Studios in partnership with Bungie, Destiny 2: Forsaken offers core players an epic experience, and offers a compelling entry point for new players,” said Byron Beede, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Destiny at Activision. “I’m looking forward to watching players get their hands on some of the most requested features requested by the dedicated Destiny 2 community.”

Following years of strife, what remains of the Reef has fallen to lawlessness. Players investigate the recent unrest and will explore new regions, awaken new powers, and earn powerful weapons. Building on the most requested desire for a deep and rewarding endgame experience, Destiny 2: Forsaken features The Dreaming City destination. Full of secrets to discover and bosses to defeat, this destination also houses the brand-new raid and is the first space designed from the ground up to support endgame content. Available to all Destiny 2 players around Forsaken’s launch comes highly anticipated changes and features such as a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements.

Destiny 2: Forsaken will be available at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The product line-up will also feature the Destiny 2: Forsaken + Annual Pass Bundle at $69.99 SRP, and the Destiny 2: Forsaken - Digital Deluxe Edition featuring premium digital content at $79.99 SRP on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and PC, exclusively on Battle.net®. At launch, PlayStation® gamers will get access to the following timed exclusive content*: a strike, one gear set per class, a new ship and an exotic weapon. At Destiny 2: Forsaken’s launch, the previously released Destiny 2 launch timed exclusives will be made available for all platforms.

Great, more stupid ass PVP that this games doe not need. It need a complete re-work and a bigger open world on all maps with way more story content.

And yea, I just loved their comment about the 200 items go and get them. So where are we supposed to store these 200 items? It sure as shit wont be in the small shitty vault you have.

I'm as disappointed with Bungie as anyone. The original release was a big let down (tons of reasons, I'm not going to get into them, it'll take all day), the Curse of Osiris DLC only made things worse, and their update speed is weirdly and unforgivably slow.

However, the core of the gameplay feels amazing, and the Warmind DLC and recent patches have been slowly (aggravatingly so) improving things. We still need lots of details, but on the surface, this new Forsaken expansion sounds like a lot of good stuff to help improve the game.

All that said, I'm all for pointing out the flaws in this game hoping they get fixed, so I fully support Destiny related complaints. But my dude, at least complain about things that are actually issues. The new Gambit mode is mostly PvE, with only a touch of PvP (FYI, I *hate* PvP and this looks interesting to me), and they are also expanding the vault by another 200 slots.

Though I definitely support more story content.
