As I thought, Grimoire is gone and all story is in-game now.

I don't believe there are shooters with this fidelity of graphics that have bigger worlds than this. Keep in mind that while on Patrol you can start a mission or strike so there's that to do in terms of a seamless activity in the world.


As much as I've played this game, I honestly have not read much of the Grimoire at all and I'm really not interested in it. I think if the story didn't suck so much in D1 then the Grimoire wouldn't have been much of a deal at all. I do agree with you though, if they're going to do it then it should be in-game.


I'm very happy with 3 sub-classes for each, and that is all in fact that there will be. I think it's any more than that and things start to get redundant in terms of abilities, not to mention that this is a great reason to play as the other 2 classes so you have a total of 9 sub-classes to play.


I'm very hyped for built-in clan support. Someone start designing the Ascendant Justice banner.


Crucified, his son, and I are switching to PS4. Who on here will NOT be on PS4?

Here's the official Activision fact sheet.


Destiny 2



    Product Description

Destiny 2 is a first-person action game and the evolution of its award winning, internationally acclaimed predecessor, Destiny. With a compelling, immersive story and fresh beginning awaiting all new, returning, casual, and competitive players, Destiny 2 will deliver an experience for new and existing players to discover.  

    Cinematic Story with Relatable Characters

Humanity has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Lord Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee their home. Players will venture out into our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, they must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

    Four New Stunning Worlds to Explore with New Features

Destinations of Destiny 2

§  European Dead Zone – The largest destination yet featuring a lush forest, abandoned town, a cave system below the surface, and a Red Legion military base to explore and contest.

§  Titan – One of Saturn’s Moons where Commander Zavala is regrouping at the hands of Ghaul. There is no land on Titan. Instead, players explore a series of Golden Age platforms surrounded by a rolling ocean.

§  Nessus – a strange and unstable planetoid that has been fully consumed by the Vex where players will find Cayde-6 is caught up in his own adventures in a stunning landscape of sheer walls, lush canyons, and creepy Vex caverns.

§  Io – A moon of Jupiter, where Ikora Rey has gone in search of answers. Io is the last known site the Traveler visited during the Golden Age, it’s now occupied by our enemies.

All New Director

§  Your guide throughout Destiny 2 in your search for Adventures, Lost Sectors, new Public Events, and more. Players can pick a landing zone, explore, and seamlessly jump into other activities in game.



§  Shorter missions with self-contained stories for players to learn more about the Destiny 2 universe and the characters that live there.

Lost Sectors

§  Scattered, enemy dungeon layers throughout the world you can discover with unique boss enemies guarding treasure to earn.

Public Events

§  Unique, optional, dynamic combat activities that players can join on the fly as they roam around the world solo or with up to nine other players.

    Action, Adventure, and Gameplay Activities for All Types of Players: New, Returning, Casual, and Competitive

Play Solo or with Friends

§  Story Campaign – Narrative of Destiny 2’s cinematic story where players can also explore in Adventures, Patrols, Lost Sectors, Quests, and Public Events.

Join Friends to Complete Cooperative Experiences

§  Strikes – Three-player missions in Destiny 2.

§  The Raid – Six-player missions with incredible challenges and rewards.

Face-off Against Opponents in Competitive Experiences

§  The Crucible: Competitive 4v4 PvP Gameplay with New Modes and Maps

-          Countdown is a new competitive mode where players spawn on either Offense or Defense, and when the round ends you swap sides and roles. The goal is to plant a bomb at the enemy base, and then defend it until it explodes. Each round is worth one point. First team to six wins. To revive a teammate, you must use a revive token. Power weapon ammo is only granted to the one player who pulls it. Working as a team is the key to victory.

-          Midtown is an abandoned part of the City. When the Red Legion invaded, they completely ignored this sector of the City in their takeover. The Legion deemed Midtown was of no tactical importance. Lord Shaxx agrees, which is why it was chosen as a Crucible arena in the first place.

Clan Creation Feature

§  New integrated system that allows friends to bring their community and unique culture to the forefront of Destiny. Clans have been fully integrated into the game and will provide official banners, invitations, and their own rewards and experience systems for all members.
