Destiny 2 was one of the most anticipated games of 2017 and it’s getting better all the time.
With the new ‘Warmind’ expansion comes many fixes and new features. Escalation protocol is a new mode that enables you to play with a mixture of friends and strangers (though hopefully they will update that so you can choose either/or). It’s challenging, fun and garners a plethora of rewards which is all you really want in a Destiny game. More updates are scheduled for the next few months so there’s no better time to jump aboard the Destiny train. Feedback is not only being received but (finally) being taken into consideration by the developer, Bungie, and in response they have released their planned improvements for the next few months.
The soundtrack alone deserves your attention and respect, along with Nier Automata it ranks up there as one of the best of 2017. See: Journey (featuring Kronos Quartet) for proof.
There’s a lot of content to get through and it only follows that a lot of hours can be spent in the new DLC but bear in mind it can be rather repetitive. So to sum up, you get your money’s worth but it includes some grinding. I, personally, don’t really mind that if I’m enthralled and immersed enough by the world. Including Nathan Fillion as Cayde-6, the charismatic hunter in a futuristic space epic sparks that nostalgia for many of the oft side-lined Firefly fans and he is a delight as always. Now only if we could get a Dr. Horrible 2 in the works…
Cayde-6 is also available as an adorable Funko Pop! figure if you fancy it, available now at The Mall. Easily accessible from your Xbox or any device you please.
