'Destiny 2' release date arriving imminently? May be set on Mars, featuring new subclasses of Guardians


Bungie’s highly anticipated game “Destiny 2” is expected to arrive imminently after the current version received a slew of updates and downloadable content (DLC). However, some fans are wondering if the sequel could welcome new players and at the same time satisfy longtime gamers.

According to Game Rant, there are a lot of ways for the upcoming game to even out the playing field for both the newcomers and veterans such as changing the leveling system. Although the latter may hate to see their progress reset, doing so will eliminate the fact that the former may be at a disadvantage.

It will also be interesting to see if the developers will introduce new subclasses or add more creatures to their established legendary Guardians composed of Hunter, Warlock and Titan. Having new subclasses is deemed to give the gameplay an exciting feel as the users may learn to adopt more play styles aside from the Arc, Void and Solar elements.

Official details for the next iteration are being kept under wraps. There are rumors that with the narrative still focusing on the original characters as they avert a major catastrophe from happening, their epic fight might take place on the red planet.

The aforementioned assumption is apparently based on Bungie removing a section of “The Taken King” DLC which was supposed to be set on Mars. Kotaku previously shared that the particular section may be rendered by High Moon Studios which also did work on the film franchise “Transformers.”

When it comes to the title, some claim that it will be called “Destiny 2: Shattered Suns” which comes from a storyline that has a premise focusing on a Warlock named Osiris. However, since the developers have yet to comment on the matter, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.

As fans wait for any announcement, they could first get their hands on the expansion dubbed “Rise of Iron.” It is slated to be released on Sept. 20 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
