We've known for a while that a sequel to online shooter Destiny is coming, but we've had very little detail to go off of thus far. In a new blog post, developer Bungie has pulled back the curtain a little bit, revealing what will happen to current Destiny characters when Destiny 2 launches — and it may ruffle some feathers.
The biggest question on most peoples' minds was how much of your Destiny 1 character's progress would transfer over to the sequel. According to Bungie, the answer is not much:
Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player's best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.
That said, if you're attached to your character's appearance, that will be transferrable to the sequel. Your guardian's class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections will all transfer to Destiny 2, so long as that character is level 20 and has completed the "Black Garden" story mission. Destiny 1 characters will also get some sort of marking to denote their veteran status.
Finally, while a full Destiny 2 reveal may be a ways off, Bungie is planning a final event called "Age of Triumph" to cap the first game. Aside from the name, we don't know much about the event. However, Bungie is set to reveal more next Wednesday, March 8 with further details in the weeks after.
