Maybe it can actually be useful this time, too.
It sounds like Destiny 2 may be offering players an all new kind of ship, beyond what the original Destiny already offered. As Redditor ZeroDerge points out a new kind of ship is actually displayed on the “Beta Access” picture for Destiny 2.
This is actually interesting, because the original Destiny also similarly teased a new ship class with its ‘Beta Access’ poster, which did end up turning out to be a real in game ship- the Phaeton Class ship. This means that Bungie may yet again be making us privy to a ship class in the game that we don’t already know about yet.
Whatever it is, hopefully it’s actually useful in game- the lack of any actual utilization of the awesome ships on offer in the original Destiny was one of the big misses of that game. Let’s hope that with Destiny 2, Bungie has made it so that ships matter more. Destiny 2 is due this September for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
