Game developer Bungie has announced that the Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) and highly-anticipated sequel to its Destiny franchise, Destiny 2 will feature "Guardians" when it is finally released in September 2016.
Destiny 2, to be called The Shattered Sun, will have guardians acting as a guide and seer for players that allows then to see the future and see their opponents in the next levels, as well as give them insights on what they need to defeat their future opponents and the points and prize they will earn from that level.
Bungie's manager Dee-J said they want to ensure that Destiny 2: The Shattered Sun will provide players "a lot of fun to walk around the studio because there's always somebody thinking about visions for the future," said MNR Daily.
Meanwhile, Bungie posted an advertisement for a new job opening for PC Compatibility Tester reigniting hopes that the game developer will finally release a PC version of the hugely successful Destiny video game.
According to the company, the PC Compatibility Tester will "evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a great experience."
GearNuke speculated that the new position is an indication Bungie is developing a PC version of the game. Or could also mean that Bungie is developing a totally different game for the PC platform.
In the upcoming Destiny 2: The Shattered Sun, players will receive free updates instead of the usual paid add-ons. Some rumors also claim that Bungie will not release DLC for Destiny 2 as updates will be provide for free. A very good news indeed for the gaming community.
Destiny 2 will also feature significant changes and upgrade from its predecessor and revolve around Osiris. Players should also expect new opponents in the upcoming Destiny 2 and a major role for Mercury.
Last week, we reported that a Reddit poster has claimed that the next Destiny installment will be released in September 2016. Part of the post reads:
"It is titled currently as 'Destiny 2 - The Shattered Suns' and is planned for release on September of 2016. You will still be using your current characters. It will focus heavily on Osiris and his endeavors as he is the main quest giver in the game. A new form of enemy is said to be in development, Possibly Ahamkara? Couldn't get a straight answer from anyone on that. Mercury is also supposed to be a big player in 'Destiny 2 - The Shattered Suns'. The main area in which the guardian will explore. Bungie has also hired on Hollywood writers for the story of this game as well. A new voice for the ghost is also being implemented. Bungie apparently stated that they are not going to continue with DLC's, but instead release free raids, planets, etc. throughout time. They will only be continuing with the main games after TTK and its successor DLCs."
The post went on to say, "Finally as a bonus, there is not going to be trading implemented into the game ever. Stated, 'Activision got sent a letter regarding what not to do on a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) from Blizzard, and trading was on that list'. Also that there is no 6th chest in the VoG or has only been known by a small group of people in the studio. It was just a bluff to keep us occupied for The Taken King most likely."
