Destiny 2 Special! Joined by Gimboid and SergeantJay to delve into Bungie’s release of the Destiny 2 game play trailer reveal, the anticipation of the upcoming sequel, what Destiny has meant to them so far and why they are so excited about this announcement.
This Week on JungleDrums: Destiny 2 Special
Starting off the discussion, AcuteJungle66 and his cohorts talked about how they each found themselves so enthralled with the first title in the franchise. Longtime Destiny fans, they each had been anxiously awaiting the formal reveal of the follow-up entry, and talked about what appeared to be on the way with the worldwide reveal trailer. Some of the easter eggs present in the reveal showed insight to where Destiny 2 may be heading towards in terms of storyline, and the members of this week’s show brought up their personal take on what kind of hopes the have for the franchise.
Comparing against the limits that the original Destiny saw (graphically), being first released on Xbox 360 and PS3, the marked improvements shown to UI elements and animation are already setting the stage for a visually-enhanced gaming experience. One can only hope that Bungie continues to follow up on promises made for the sequel. Other topics of discussion:
- Destiny 2 Trailer Breakdowns
- Revamped PVE mechanics
- Larger-scale game environments and open-world set pieces
- Light Level returns!
- New looking for group features
