Bungie Addresses the 'State of Destiny 2' in Blog Post

Bungie Addresses the 'State of Destiny 2' in Blog Post

Bungie was supposed to live stream the upcoming Curse of Osiris expansion, however, the studio has scrapped that plan to invest "all efforts into delivering some higher priority information" about Destiny 2 endgame content. Bungie will address the Destiny 2 endgame content issue today.

"We had planned to conduct the final stream prior to the launch of "Curse of Osiris" to show off some of the weapons and armor the expansion includes". It will instead use the time to publish a new blog post detailing some key info on the game.

Bungie, the studio behind Destiny and Destiny 2 have not publically stated how long players will have with the free trial which makes downloading after November 28th a priority to get as much time with the game before potentially plopping down $59.99.

This was revealed by David "Deej" Dague over on the studio's official forums (via Kotaku).

The blog post is expected to go live early this evening United Kingdom time, when Bungie's Seattle studio awakes. The issue here is that the information was hidden from the player so that they would continue to think that they were gathering XP at the normal rate. This would essentially double the amount of XP needed to level up, which leads to more grinding in a game that is already panned for being too grind-y.

Unfortunately, the developers only made things worse because the fix that they have in mind is basically reducing XP gains of all players in every part of the game. Now the storyline is good, but the insane loot system, the tokens, and the zero personality to crucible choices, weapon rolls and the one use shaders are, in my opinion, ridiculous.

Secondly, not one, but two updates will land next month, one being the aforementioned Curse of Osiris expansion.

Even before its launch, Destiny 2 has been facing a lot of heat from the community for everything from its gameplay balance, multiple exploits, and an anti-consumer microtransaction system.
