Bungie’s Destiny 2 showcase has include a plethora of latest info relating to the sport’s future, together with the announcement of a closing DLC after Lightfall: The Final Shape.
Bungie has spoiled us with an enormous quantity of new content material coming to Destiny 2. The most shocking of all these bulletins, nonetheless, is a closing DLC for the sport after Lightfall. This new DLC, titled The Final Shape, is to be the ultimate launch for Destiny 2‘s present stoyrline, culminating over seven years’ price of story-telling in a single closing crescendo earlier than departing from the Light and Darkness Saga.
According to Bungie, The Final Shape shall be a “transformative moment” for Destiny 2. There was nothing referencing the newly introduced DLC in The Witch Queen leaks that have been launched within the days main as much as the showcase aside from hints of content material past Lightfall. The announcement of one other full-fledged DLC is welcomed information.
There remains to be fairly a protracted solution to go earlier than we see The Final Shape. The Witch Queen releases on February 22, 2022, with Light Fall doubtless coming in some unspecified time in the future within the first half of 2023. So, it is not unreasonable to imagine we can’t be seeing The Final Shape within the flesh till nicely into 2023, if not 2024.
There was a selected focus placed on Bungie’s “transformative state” remark from the showcase. We can take this to imply a variety of various things. On a basic degree, we are able to assume that the remark is in reference to the state of the Destiny 2 world earlier than the launch of Destiny 3, much like what Bungie did with Destiny 1 and The Taken King. However, a line of pondering that must be explored is the potential for Destiny 2 changing into a full-fledged live-service recreation. Players have mentioned at size the advantages and drawbacks of Destiny releasing new titles, slightly than constructing on a singular world extra akin to one thing like World of Warcraft. Pushing D2 to a “transformative state” might due to this fact imply having the sport merely changing into “Destiny,” with all future updates being launched off of that title with out the necessity for one more entry within the franchise.
Of course, that is all conjecture. With The Final Shape being not less than two years off, do not count on to listen to something extra about it anytime quickly. It’s all the time enjoyable to invest, although.
Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
