Destiny 2 saw the “Last Call” teaser released yesterday, and this is the sequel to the internationally-acclaimed Destiny, a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation.
This new reveal trailer, “Rally the Troops,”, has debuted a character-driven glimpse at the story. In addition, the first hands-on gameplay reveal livestream will be broadcast around the world on May 18th. The broadcast will showcase a variety of fun, action-oriented activities within Destiny 2 and will highlight the brand-new, epic adventure waiting for players. With a fresh start for all players right from the opening cinematic, the game will expand across the globe with a worldwide release on September 8th with, as we confirmed yesterday, exclusive additional timed content on the PS4. The game is also available on Xbox One and, for the first time, PC!
Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg: “Destiny was the biggest launch of a new console video game franchise ever. Along with our incredibly talented partners at Bungie, we are focusing on making Destiny 2 even better, with state of the art first person action, an awesome new story, great characters, and thoughtful innovations that make the game more accessible to all different kinds of players. We’re also bringing Destiny 2 to the PC platform for the first time. Destiny 2 will make an already great game franchise better than ever.”
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons added, “The past three years have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for Bungie. To know that millions of players around the world have forged lasting Destiny memories and even made it their hobby is truly humbling and we can’t wait to continue the journey. We are looking forward to sharing a fresh, inviting story, and with the upcoming Destiny 2 Beta slated for this summer, we are eager to get feedback from millions of players around the world who will get a glimpse of the new adventures that will unfold for all of us. Together, with our partners at Activision, we are thrilled to get Destiny 2 in the hands of players in September.”
In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lays in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. As a Guardian, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. The official reveal trailer shows two of the Vanguard, leaders of the Guardians, inspiring the people of the last city in an impassioned (and occasionally sarcastic) call to arms. Players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.
