Destiny 2 is the latest entry to Bungie’s flagship shooter series, succeeding its previous work as the creators of Halo. While inheriting several gameplay mechanics from its 2014 predecessor, Destiny 2 also introduces some welcome changes to storytelling, core mechanics, and the overarching world.
Destiny 2’s story kicks off with a darker tone, following the destruction of the Tower. Dominus Ghaul, the leader of a brutal Cabal faction known as Red Legion has launched an attack on the Last City, in a plan to commandeer the Traveler’s power from humanity. Over the course of the game, you’ll travel the Solar System in search of answers while regaining your abilities of the light.
