What you need to know

  • Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter from Halo creator Bungie.
  • The game is getting a new event called Guardian Games next week.
  • You'll have to participate in activities and prove that you class is the best.
  • You can purchase Destiny 2 for $35 on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) $32 at GMG (Steam) (opens in new tab).

Next week, Destiny 2 is getting a new mode and exotic. Guardian Games wants you to prove that you class is the best. I'm hoping Titans win because, as controversial as it may sound, they're by far the best class in the game!

However, that's not all. If you were hoping for the chance to earn a new exotic, you'll be pleased to know that the Hier Apparent machine gun will be available on April 21. It's unclear how easy it'll be to earn, but I'm hoping that it's not tied to winning the Guardian Games.

Your fall into second place as you reach for the last trick in your arsenal. The low hum assures you that you've pulled the trigger. It begins to spin. Slowly for a moment and then in an instant, blindingly fast. The roar of the Heir Apparent rises above the crowd, the tide turns, and the glory of your class is secured.

You can read more about the major changes coming to Destiny 2 on Bungie's website. You should also be able to unlock the Almighty Seal then because the final Secret Triumph should go live that requires you to have a perfect run in the Seraph Tower Public Event.

Destiny 2 is free-to-play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The latest expansion, Shadowkeep, costs $35 on all platforms.

  • I've been playing Destiny 2 on the PS4 with one of my friends lately. While the firefights are a lot of fun, I can't stand all the "grind" as he likes to call it. And you can't even be successful at the story-lines if you don't do those things. I'm thinking about quitting, I only spent $10 for the season pass, just to see if I like it. It's about impossible to feel like you're accomplishing something, and it has become so complicated. Even story based missions aren't clearly explained, it's like they expect you to know all about the game coming into it. You need different weapons for different quests, and if you don't spend an hour picking up every quest before you even start playing, you don't really accomplish anything. It's becoming tedious.
