Apparently, there will be lots to do after the story is finished.
Destiny was the kind of game that one could sink literally hundreds of hours into, so even if you weren’t interested in the main story, or had already completed the main story and were still looking for things to do, so it’s no surprise that its sequel, Destiny 2, is going to be similar in that regard. There’s apparently going to be lots for players to sink their teeth into even once they’re done with the game’s main story.
Heavy recently conducted an interview with Destiny 2’s community manager DeeJ, and when asked about the post-game content in Destiny 2, he said that there was going to be tons of activities, from Nightfall and Crucible to Public Events. The latter, especially, will be receiving significant upgrades in Destiny 2, in that unlike in the previous games, rather than having to roam the map to look for Public Events, when one starts, you’ll be able to see it on the map.
“Beyond the campaign, once the last cinematic plays out I think you’re going to find a lot more variety,” said DeeJ. “When you’re in a destination, you open the map and the map will be littered with all these different things you can do. You can go on adventures that will tell you more about those destinations and the characters that you’ll discover in those places. You’re used to walking up to a character in The Tower or in a social space like The Reef or Felwinter Peak, but you’ll actually walk up to characters in destinations and interact with them.”
“So they will put on this map different things like adventures or Lost Sectors,” he continued. “There are more things to experience as part of the end game aside from raids, aside from the Nightfall, and, you know, Crucible end game activities. There are things you can do in the world to expand your understanding of those places or get rewards. Public Events that you can see on the map you’ll know when they begin, instead of people literally wandering around the world of Destiny hoping a Public Event would start. Or crowdsourcing together to figure out a map. This will be a function that is served in the game. So many things where people were dropping the controller and picking this up (holds up smart phone) are now in the game.
“You’re going to learn more about the story in the game. You’re going to understand when the Public Events start in the game. You’re going to be able to interact with other players and manage your clan in the game. And, what we want to do is immerse people’s minds in the world of the game and not force them to leave to make their experience complete. I think you’re going to find, even independent of the raid, there’s a far greater variety of things to do to enjoy your Guardian lifestyle after the final cutscene has played out.”
Destiny 2 launches on September 6 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned for more coverage on the game.
