Bungie outlines its plans for Destiny 2 in 2018

Bungie outlines its plans for Destiny 2 in 2018

Christopher Barrett, says "We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never meant to be a substitute for end game content and rewards". New Raid-specific perks and guaranteed item drops from major encounters should help ameliorate that the hard raids simply aren't worth the effort at the moment.

When it comes to Eververse, more new cosmetics will come from activities, meaning some Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships will be put in reward pools.

Three changes will be made with the #Upcoming Seasons, with the first one about shifting the balance of the new content. They also state a desire to implement a "gameplay path" to earn Bright Engrams, which could allow players access to Eververe items without spending any actual money at all. There will also be a new Ghost with raid-specific perks, which has a chance to drop from both raid bosses.

Bungie agrees with claims of an imbalance between Achievement and Bright Engram rewards and will be making adjustments to shift more rewards into specific endgame pursuits instead of generic XP grinding for Bright Engrams. Bungie will also begin to include game modes that were missing like Private Matches, Strike Scoring, and ranked play for the Crucible, and overall they want to address the loot system and therefore make the end-game aspect more encouraging. This was announced alongside other future updates, as Bungie tries to keep Destiny 2 relevant. Crimson Days (Destiny's Valentine's Day event) will be on this year (after having skipped last year), starting February 13. Bungie is also adding Masterwork versions of armor and reevaluating how gear mods work, Barrett said. This is now slated for release sometime in spring. The devs will be evaluating how Mods play into the Bright Engram economy as a result, as they are "sensitive to pay-to-win outcomes".

Below is the extract of Eververse changes that player will see after the new update.

Frost clearing, but fog will linger in some midland areas through the day. Some patches of fog will form and also some frost.

Elsewhere, Bungie is going to take its time with the next full expansion in the wake of heavy criticism over the underwhelming Curse of Osiris expansion.

Sandbox adjustments based on player feedback and data from the live game. Lastly, this update will include PC Tower Chat, quickplay improvements, the appearance of Fireteam members on the destination map. We will continue to update you as we move forward.

The developer has kicked off 2018 with a big list of improvements: some expected additions, some returning Destiny 1 features, and a couple of genuine surprises.

Multi-Emote: When multi-emote launches, you will be able to choose which emote you have equipped to each of your four emote slots.

Heroic Strike Changes: We'll be introducing modifiers to add more gameplay variety to the experience.
