“For all of us at the studio, this is a humbling year to see the vision of the Destiny universe welcome its sequel, and for us, the most exciting part is to see what stories this amazing community will tell once it is in their hands. We had an industry-defining moment at our Destiny 2 gameplay reveal in May, and at E3, the team is expanding hands-on to showcase a new subclass and will continue to highlight the vast variety of hands-on experiences that appeal to both solo and multiplayer gamers.”
Destiny 2 is the sequel to the internationally acclaimed Destiny, a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation. In the story of Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy Dominus Ghaul and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a ‘Guardian,’ humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. Destiny 2 will offer a fresh start to all players with no previous knowledge or background needed.
