Destiny is definitely an 'upgrade'

Developer Bungie and publisher Activision have released the sequel to the highly popular Destiny, an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.  Set in a fictional world like the original, Destiny 2 features elements of role-playing games across a multiplayer “shared-world” environment.

In addition to the main story driven campaign missions, Destiny 2 includes player versus player (PvP) modes and several player versus environment (PvE) modes.  The PvE modes include a three-player strikes and six-player raids.  The game also has a free roam mode where players can take part in public events across the map.

Like Destiny, Destiny 2 includes the same three classes of Hunters, Titans and Warlocks.  Each class has their own perks, special abilities and sub-classes.  Together the classes work together in a typical damage dealer (Hunter), tank (Titan) and support (Warlock) role.

Although there is plenty for a player to do who like to game solo, Destiny 2 is better experienced with others.  Players can silently work with other unknown and random strangers in public events and free roam activities.  Also, players can team up with friends and others for more grueling and time-consuming strikes and/or raids for better loot and legendary gear.  Players can even join clans which offer some passive benefits for just being a part of the clan as well as helping with meeting certain milestones.

Bungie has made a lot of great updates to Destiny 2.  The variety of activities found in the game now make the grinding up in levels less repetitive and entertaining for both teams and solo players.  Speaking of teams, working together with others now is highly rewarding and only adds to the already satisfying looting and shooting.

In conclusion, Destiny 2 cuts down on the repetitive frustration found in the original game’s grinding.  The campaigns story is now understandable and enjoyable.  It’s definitely an upgrade from the first game for me and keeps players wanting to come back for more each day with the loot driven gameplay.  Aside from a few bugs, Destiny 2 appears to be an easy candidate for Game of the Year (GOTY).
