Remember the big Destiny announcement from Bungie that we teased yesterday? Bungie just updated its official blog and spilled the beans. Before we get to the announcements having to do with Destiny, we're going to kick things off with what Bungie revealed about Destiny 2. Check it out:
"Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1."
Okay, everyone calm down. I know that sounds dire. All of the precious loot and skills that you've spent countless hours unlocking and honing will not go with you into Destiny 2. All is not lost, though. Your character him or herself will be preserved, and will be rewarded for their service.
"We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments."
Now then, Bungie also teased the reveal for its final live event for the original Destiny, which it's calling "Age of Triumph." Bungie will detail this event in full on Wednesday, March 8. We'll be back then with all of the details. In the meantime, what do you think about losing your gear in Destiny 2? Are you okay with it as long as it allows for a more polished Destiny experience, or will you be losing what you consider to be the most important part of the experience?
