Destiny, the online-only multiplayer game that took the world by storm when it first released worldwide on September 9th 2014, unfortunately, will not be receiving any more gameplay changes as announced by its developers, Bungie. Bungie has decided to halt any further updates for Destiny due to the upcoming release of the sequel, Destiny 2. “In our constant watch over the community, we’ve heard many of you asking if the current sandbox will get another design pass. Our sole focus at the time is Destiny 2.”
Bungie has also stated previously in their weekly blog post that the “Age of Triumph” update would be the final update Destiny would receive. Destiny incorporates shared world mechanics with elements of an RPG (role-playing game), as well as elements of a first person shooter with PVP (player versus player) mechanics. Set in a “mythical science fiction world” players take on the role of “Guardians” who are the protectors of the last remaining city on Earth, after most of humanity was destroyed by “The Darkness” after it caused an event known as the “Collapse” which wiped out most of humanity. Players can have their “Guardians” be one of three species, human, Exo (humanoid machines), or Awoken (humans who were altered mysteriously in space). Players can also choose one of three classes for their character, Hunters, Titans, or Warlocks, after fully customizing their character players are able to set off to protect the Earth for “The Darkness” and any aliens who seek to destroy it.
Bungie has stated that even after Destiny 2 is released they will still be offering support for the game. Not many details have been released for the upcoming sequel of Destiny but Bungie has assured fans that many new updates will be released along with it, Bungie also thanked fans for their feedback and which helps to improve the game. Even without new updates coming to Destiny fans can still enjoy the online game with a majority of content the game already has. The game has received three DLC (downloadable content) expansion packages that add more to the game’s content. The game has received The Dark Below, House of Wolves, and The Taken King DLCs. The expansion packages offer added storylines, added content for the player’s character and hours of extra entertainment for the player to enjoy. There is still little mention of what specifically Destiny 2 has in store for gamers, but with Bungie set to release more details about the game at E3 in the upcoming week, gamers won’t have to wait long to learn more about the game. Destiny 2 is set for a 2017 release, but until then the original Destiny is available to all those who wait in anticipation. Happy gaming!
