"The Taken King", which is the latest DLC from the videogame "Destiny", was unveiled during the recently concluded E3. But there is already a buzz surrounding the release of the game's full-version sequel. There is little information available online about "Destiny 2", though an executive from Bungie, the title's developer, recently spilled the beans on what can be expected from "Destiny 2".
"Destiny", which was released in September last year, is a first-person shooting game that follows the attempt of mankind to repopulate after the "Collapse." In the game's fictional world, efforts at recolonizing is constantly thwarted by hostile alien races determined to eliminate the existence of human life
"Destiny" is the first original offering from Bungie, following the success of the "Halo" franchise. "Destiny" is widely considered to be a success in its own right and has since spawned three succeeding downloadable content with, "The Taken King" being the latest.
The third DLC was made available during E3 2015 and met with mixed to negative reviews. Most gamers who purchased the expansion were excited about the introduction of a new villain, but disappointed at finding out that the main bad guy's minions are nothing, but a blend of the existing enemies. And at $40 for just the DLC, it seems like a steep price to pay for seeing old recycled characters.
With "The Taken King" being underwhelming, fans of the game have turned to the sequel of "Destiny" to redeem the series. In an interview by Gamespresso with Bungie community manager, David Dague, a few details about the game were revealed.
"For Destiny 2, the idea is that the guardian that you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure. If you take a look at the way people have played other games for a long period of time, they've had a relationship with the same character for a very long time," he stated.
There is no confirmed air date yet for "Destiny 2", though it is slated to be released by next year.
