Destiny 2 Faction Rally

Bungie has received quite a lot of flak lately for the non-existent end-game in Destiny 2. Sure, you could do the Leviathan raid, Trials of the Nine and even partake in events like the Faction Rally or Iron Banner. However, you’re not really getting anything more powerful for doing so. There’s the cosmetic reward and little else, which is a pretty big step down from Destiny 1.

It seems that Bungie has recognized this fact and after announcing the upcoming Seasons at TwitchCon, live team director Christopher Barrett (who also delivered House of Wolves and Rise of Iron) laid out future changes and updates coming to the end-game.

Nothing concrete was provided but private matches will be coming to Crucible in early 2018. Better incentives for Prestige activities, improved rewards and replay value when it comes to Strikes, Adventures and Lost Sectors, Supremacy tuning to adjust scoring and improved spawn logic and improvements to limited-time events are among some of the the priorities Barrett outlined.

You can check out the full list for yourself below and decide whether it’s worth sticking with Destiny 2 for the foreseeable future. Still, some response from Bungie is still better than the abject silent it’s delivered since launch.

  • New systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits.
  • Better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities.
  • Better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors.
  • Private matches for the competitive community (we are targeting early 2018).
  • Crucible tuning like adjusted Supremacy scoring and better spawning rules.
  • Better incentives for completing Crucible matches (and penalties for quitting competitive games).
  • Continued improvements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, including uniqueness of rewards.
  • Changes to make the mod economy more interesting and impactful.
  • Ongoing improvements to Exotics, including adjustments to reduce instances of duplication.
  • New ways to spend surplus currency and materials (looking at you Legendary Shards).
  • An emote interface that allows players to equip Salty, Spicy Ramen, Six Shooter, and Flip Out all at the same time.
