First gameplay video and more news revealed for Destiny 2

FYI, this story is more than a year old

Activision and Bungie held a special event to reveal more details about the highly anticipated  Destiny 2 earlier today. In the event, we get our first look at gameplay footage for the game.  Bungie were not shy in giving us a look at the gameplay in Destiny 2. Below you can look at the first seven minutes of the first mission called "Homecoming". The gameplay looks similar to the first game, although the sequel promises to offer a better story with new areas and planets for you to explore. Speaking of the story, people may recognise Lance Reddick's voice in the gameplay video. Reddick plays the character called Commander Zavala. He is reprising his role from the first game.  Bungie is also allowing players to have more freedom when it comes to weapons slots. You can also expect to see new classes including one that allows you to wield a cool looking flame sword.  At launch, there will be the usual strikes, PvP and raid modes. More raids and strikes should be available in the near future as expansions and other paid DLC packs are planned.  One disappointing aspect about the Crucible (PvP) multiplayer mode is that the sequel only supports 4v4 gameplay. This is down from the 6v6 matches we got in the first game.  Destiny 2 is also the first in the franchise to be released on PC. The PC version of the game is exclusive to Activision's Battle.net service. The PC version will have support for 4K and 60fps or more. As for the console versions, they are set at 30fps currently.  The game will be released first for PS4 and Xbox One on September 8th, 2017. The PC version's release date is still not confirmed, but it's expected to come out at a later time.
