Destiny 2: Is the Crucible Not Working?

Thursday, 07 Sep, 2017

Destiny 2 has it all. The Verge calls the PC version of Destiny 2 - which supports 4K resolution, uncapped framerate, and full mouse/keyboard support - "spectacular". Guided Games will help players find the right groups to tackle Destiny 2's many activities. New to the cataclysmic solar system are Quests, hidden public space treasure chests, and Adventures which will provide dynamic content within Destiny 2's connected / open space explorable planets.

"Shooting monsters in Destiny 2 is even more visually rewarding".

"Destiny is created to bring players together, and we are humbled to be part of the communities who breathe life into our worlds", said Pete Parsons, Bungie CEO.

Destiny 2 is developed by original Halo creators Bungie and published by Activision Blizzard.

When you start up Destiny 2 after having played the first game, you aren't immediately greeted with a cutscene depicting Dominus Ghaul's attack on the Tower.

That's still the case if you're pre-ordered a digital copy, as that won't unlock until midnight BST whatever you do. Now that we've played Destiny 2 ourselves, we know that the game's acknowledgment of our time with Destiny and its four expansions is more meaningful than any in-game trinket could ever be. You can pre-order this on Amazon for a cool £90.

Entering more battles in the game's four zones earns players "tokens" that can be used for improving looted items, the site says. Are you planning to pick up Destiny 2 at launch? You'll also get a "Frontier Kit" containing a solar panel USB charger with light, paracord and a solar blanket - presumably so you can stay warm and charged when camping out for other absurd collector's editions in the future. Instead, you get a series of illustrations recounting your major victories from the first game.

This Wednesday, the Last City falls.

It's all very dystopian sci-fi, and Bungie is framing the story as a tale of redemption and revenge. Jake Lear, an engineer on our team at Vox Media, said that his memory for the Vault of Glass - a raid, which is created to be played with a team of six people - showed him beating it with just one other person. Some people can play for hours and then experience a crash and for some it crashes very fast.
