Destiny 2 DLC roadmap set to Summer 2019

Bungie Wants to Self Publish New Games

An expansion of Destiny 2 into China could pull in a huge influx of players and cash, something the title could use considering its middling performance. It counts on having its audience play regularly, so new content - especially loot - is necessary to keep them engaged. Here's a look at its reveal trailer and its first details. Since then, Bungie has released has released roadmaps and content updates, notably the second expansion - Warmind - which came out in May. A returning location from the original Destiny, it's the home of the Awoken, and you'll be visiting a piece of it called the Tangled Shore. You've got all the old fighting tools, but there are some new ones as well like a teleportation power that is described as being inspired by anime and, if you can believe it, a bow and arrow. This includes the Barons, the big bads of the Scorn.

If there is one thing you have to love about Bungie and their Destiny franchise, it's that they constantly develop and innovate. The whole expansion will have a Western flavor. With more collectible gear than ever before, new locations, and that pretty sweet looking Gambit addition - could this be the turnaround that Bungie fans have been waiting for? There will be a bow for short, medium, and long range, which gives it more versatility. Now players can place weapons such as a sniper rifle and shotgun in their Kinetic, Energy, and Power weapon slot.

If you don't want to spend any extra money on Forsaken or the Annual Pass, there are a number of new features being added to the base Destiny 2 experience, as well. "Two teams of four race to summon a Primeval enemy and be the first to burn it down". The Dreaming City is actually a full endgame destination, Bungie says, with a raid inside it.

Another interesting feature is the "Collections" an "Triumphs" which track everything you have collected and achieved in the game, for the achievers out there. This does make the price for each expansion cheaper than before at just under $12 each, however. Hopefully Bungie releases more information about them leading up to Forsaken.

"With an absorbing new story, created by High Moon Studios in partnership with Bungie, Destiny 2: Forsaken offers core players an epic experience, and offers a compelling entry point for new players", said Byron Beede, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Destiny at Activision. A digital deluxe edition will include "premium digital content" for $79.99.

Speaking of unannounced games, Blizzard has revealed in a job listing that it's working on a "new, unannounced Diablo project".

What's the difference? According to Bungie, these will focus more on gameplay content and less on cinematics. Forsaken is meant to bring a brand new style, tone, and story to Destiny 2, and none-too-subtly encourages players to pick up the new Annual Pass.
