Destiny 2 Goes Live Tonight At Midnight

Hot off the heels of the Windows PC beta for Destiny 2, Activision & Bungie are set to flip the switches on the game’s servers at midnight tonight for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Over three years in the making – Destiny 2 acts as a direct sequel to the 2014 title with a larger focus on narrative during single-player content.

Players return to the role of a Guardian – one of the last bastions of a special kind of energy known as “light”, which was brought to earth several hundred years prior thanks to an interstellar being known as “the traveler”. As explained in Destiny 1’s Grimoire Cards, the traveler’s light allowed humanity to leapfrog several centuries of technological advancement all at once. Technologies previously thought to be purely science fiction like interstellar Colony Ships, Energy Weapons, multi planet-spanning Artificial Intelligence and Faster Than Light travel all became possible thanks to the traveler.

Destiny Cabal Rumors

As we saw in the events of “Homecoming” during the Destiny 2 Open Beta – the Guardian central command located within The Tower is assaulted by a faction of the Mars based Cabal known as the Red Legion. With Destiny 1’s home base a smoldering wreck, the Speaker missing in action and Zavala & Co left fleeing – things are not looking up for Guardians as we enter the world of Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 brings a cinematic single player campaign alongside the familiar small group Strike activities featured in the first game. 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. A 6 player Raid is set to go live one week from the game’s launch on September 13th.

CEO of Activision Publishing, Eric Hirshberg had this to say about the impending Destiny 2 launch:

“A great story. Awesome characters. A menacing villain. A clear mission. A gorgeous, expansive world to explore. And of course, great, innovative gameplay that is fun to play solo or with friends. Destiny 2 has it all,”
