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.
