Destiny 2 is three weeks away and I am having some serious issues dealing with the fact that we have to wait three more weeks to play the game, to be honest. As we approach the launch, more details are bound to come up that will shed some light on the game and its features. The latest little tasty piece of information comes from a report that claims Destiny 2 will have over 80 missions to play through in the PvE portion of the game.
According to Edge Magazine, the story based content of the game, which is everything you do when you are not running around the Crucible killing other Guardians, will contain over 80 missions. According to the report, players will reach their max character progression around 50 to 55 hours into the game and from then there will be various other activities to do like Adventures, Lost Sectors, Public Events, and let us not forget the Raid which is still a huge mystery to everyone.
- 'The beta did not contain the final implementation of how Energy weapons work against AI combatants with elemental shields; when the shield is depleted, it explodes, nuking any enemies that happen to be nearby'
- Nightfall strikes now have a time limit (varying by Strike; one example was 13 minutes) so efficiency and settling on a strategy beforehand will be important
- There are over 80 missions and (
PVE) activities, and each is substantial in length, challenge, story and reward
- There's so much new content that at one point in development they realised they had more content than progression (something they've subsequently fixed)
The original Destiny had around 40 missions after all the expansions released for it, which makes Destiny 2 almost double the size of the original game. This is good news for all fans as we know how busy those activities kept us, so expect to have no social life for a few months into 2018. We also caught wind of the return of some old exotic weapons from the original game which may make their way into Destiny 2 at launch.
These 80 missions will also be accompanied by 50 cinematics which, if the Destiny 2 beta was anything to go by, will be some great scenes to watch. Let us not forget that this content excludes the hours of PvP content which most of us will enter by the time we finish the main story, as well as the two planned expansions for the game too.
All this is music to my ears, but then again, we still have three weeks to put up with without the game in our lives. We do, however, have the PC beta to look forward to later this month.
Does this news make you happy as a Destiny fan? Let us know in the comments below. While you are at it, take a look at the opening mission from the beta last month. Destiny 2 is due for release on 6 September 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One with the PC release set for 24 October.
