Action 06 September 2017

Destiny 2 is a sequel to the best-selling FPS developed by Bungie Software. This time, Bungie is aided in the development process by Vicarious Visions, creators of Skylanders and some other games. Destiny 2 introduces many new changes and improvements, not only concerning the story (this time, the story will play a bigger part than in the first game), but also in the gameplay mechanics. In Destiny 2, we will visit completely new, enormous locations (i.e. Saturn alone will be bigger than the entire first game), finding new, vibrant metropolises. In the wilderness, we will find both enemies and enemy checkpoints that are just waiting to be taken over by us. Planets known from the first Destiny will also be present in the sequel, but will be added on a later date. Due to the new technology used by Destiny 2, it won't be possible to import our characters from the original game. Transferring any sort of content from the first Destiny will probably turn out to be problematic.

The game gives you complete freedom and rewards you for exploring, making quick decisions and experimenting with different methods of solving a problem.

After a brief affair with the French Revolution the developers decided to take players to 19th-century London of the Victorian era, giving them control of two characters: hot-headed young man named Jacob and his twin sister Evie. Although the game retains all of its key elements, gameplay mechanics went through some changes. The streets are full of carriages, which, just as in Grand Theft Auto series, can be hijacked and used to move around the city. Another essential element stems from the fact of leading Jacob’s gang, and which, among other things, results in street brawls with opposing groups. The game faithfully recreates the topography of the capital city of England, so you can easily find and recognize such landmarks as Westminster Palace or St. Paul’s Cathedral.
