Destiny players who were rightfully unhappy with the game's recent holiday event, The Dawning, will be heartened to hear that Bungie plans to scale back the importance of Eververse.
Items such as Ghosts, ships and sparrows, as well as emotes, colour shaders and weapon ornaments are available through Eververse.
Aside from just leveling up, the developer claims that they'll provide a gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards, including Event Engrams.
Game director Christopher Barrett detailed a very specific road map of upcoming features in the blog post, which also highlighted a number of points that touched upon several annoyances that numerous hardcore players had.
Expand the Masterwork system to include armor. Masterworks are a category of item that has better stats with the base-level item. The Raid vendor will also directly sell Leviathan and Eater of Worlds armor and weapons for purchase with Raid tokens and Legendary Shards. Bungie is also planning on reworking armor and weapon mods and will introduce Strike Scoring to the Nightfall in place of the current time limit, while High Scores are also being implemented.
Barrett begins the discussion by distinguishing between expansions and seasons. Season three will bring with it changes to a crucible, including ranks, private matches and return of 6v6 matches - which was the standard in the original game.
Major updates and changes coming to systems and mechanics across the game.
Each Crimson Engram is very strongly weighted to new rewards when decrypted until all new event items have been obtained. We've only scratched the surface of what's in store.
An avalanche of new information on the future of Destiny 2 rolled off Mt. Bungie Thursday, one day after a senior member of the dev team confirmed collectibles will be included in all future DLC.
Bungie today released the first substantial Destiny 2 update roadmap for the new year, after pledging in late November to communicate more with the game's community and fix longstanding issues that have riled fans since the title's launch in September. This will favor activity rewards over Bright Engrams.
February will also feature Mods 2.0, "a full rework" of mods to pare down redundant mods, allow for more unique theming, and "greatly increasing their impact on your power". As a result, Destiny 2 has been hemorrhaging players. Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships which were previously only found found only in Bright Engrams will be added to reward pools.
Players will also finally be able to equip multiple emotes, as well.
We'll be introducing modifiers to add more gameplay variety to the experience.
