Destiny 2 received a large amount of ridicule and negative press on release due to the fact there wasn’t as big a WOW factor as everyone expected. The game was looked upon more like a large-scale expansion more than a re-imagining of what the original Destiny was and from this spawned a lot of people grinding to the highest light level and throwing Destiny 2 to the wayside until the first expansion [Curse of Osiris] was released.
Curse of Osiris was an ‘OK’ expansion, the level design was beautiful if linear and the missions felt overly repetitive. clearing through this expansion with 3 guardians on your roster was a job in itself [ED: we don’t like work] and again I found myself putting Destiny 2 down following the reach of the light cap. Fortnite took over [ED: and BF1 creeped up my back] and Destiny remained seated in my game collection next to Ghost Recon: Wildlands and The Division.
An announcement was made quietly, think of yelling at a rock, that Warmind is to arrive on May 8th.
New missions, harder enemies and new gear is promised with the rumour mills running full speed even mentioning a ‘horde mode’ that will be included.
Take any rumour with a large pinch of salt as a ‘Horde mode’ however fun would only dilute the already established game structure. A timed event may be worth the salt but we’ll see.
The Warmind DLC will include;
Heroic Strike Modifiers
Exotic Masterworks Versions
More Vault Slots
Emote Wheel [Allows for more than one emote to be used]
DLC crucible maps for all
New Story Missions
New Game Area [Mars]
The ‘Go Fast’ update released recently did change the dynamic of the game and as long as the Warmind DLC can improve on the content then this is a welcome addition to what I personally believe to still be a relevant game.
I’m looking forward to masterworks versions of exotics [ED which for the first month will be plagued by overpowering and lots of buffing] Heroic strike modifiers & the elusive DLC Crucible maps will be playable to all. To address the last point this will allow players who do not own the DLC to play on the all DLC maps publicly. DLC owners will be able to create private matches with the DLC maps whereas players without expansions will not. This is something the community put forward a long time ago and now Bungie have listened.
The ‘Go Fast’ update released recently did change the dynamic of the game and as long as the Warmind DLC can improve on the content then this is a welcome addition to what I personally believe to still be a relevant game. I am a self-confessed Destiny nut and look forward to the reveal trailer/stream.
The reveal trailer is slated for April 24th and we will have a breakdown of the trailer following it’s release!
What are you looking forward too?
