This will probably be a PC only buy for me, unless my character from PC carries over to XBOX.
Yeah, I'm really hoping the same thing, but with PS4.
I'm more excited for Borderlands 3 to be honest. I'll give the beta a try but I'm not really holding out hope considering how much Destiny went downhill after TTK and the troubled development of this one.
The troubled development of D2? What did you hear?
A lot of people would argue that TTK update made some of the biggest improvements to Destiny. Overall Bungie knows there's a lot of things that need improving in Destiny. This is why they decided to make an entirely new game. Bungie wants a fresh start. I'm sure they learned a lot over the past 3 years, and plan to bring across-the-board improvements. Bungie is specifically working on making sure the story and cinematics are better than D1. We also know there will be much more character customization, another major gripe with D1. I'm hoping they also improve the economy, and how we store our weapons. I don't know about you, but my vault is a complete mess. And dedicated servers!
I liked the game but did not love it. Single player had a lackluster story. I hated the pvp. So, I primarily played with my two brothers in the various strike missions. Decent game play though.
I was deeply disappointed that the raids could not be played with just 3 people. Or at the very least, that there was not some kind of basic matchmaking to get into a raid with other public players.
Single player became deadly boring for me. I'm a 95/5 guy in Destiny. 95% PvP, 5% PvE. Seeing as PvP was archaic by shooter standards in D1 (30fps, 10Hz tick rate), I'm hugely looking forward to the PvP in D2. We will surly see much higher frame rates, and probably at least a 30 or 45 Hz tick rate. This will instantly give D2 a muuuuch better PvP experience.
That's a tough one with raid matchmaking. This has been one of the biggest requests since the launch of D1, And I'm sure Bungie would love to add it. But the truth is raids are hard as #$%@. It can take hours for even experiences players to get through. Imagine if you and your friends were serious raiders then get matched up with some randoms that don't pull their weight, or even expect you to pull them
through (which happens all the time in strikes). It would probably make you beyond furious. This puts Bungie in a very difficult situation. They could theoretically lower the number of enemies, or make the enemy AI's dumber based on skill level and or # of players in the raid (assuming you could raid with 3 people), but that would be killing the integrity of their raids. Raids are supposed to be the hardest, toughest end-game activities Destiny has to offer, and requires excellent communication between each of the players. I too would like to see raid matchmaking, but I don't know how they would do it without compromising the raids.
for those that might be interested in it, details to the Collerctors Edition and the Limited Edition
LE seems to be GameStop exclusive which also comes with a Cayde-6 figure
Thanks for adding this! That collectors edition looks freaking awesome. It will be tempting for sure.
