Destiny 2 Gets Gameplay Trailer (finally), and a Strange Home

The future is not steam powered, it seems.

Destiny 2 was revealed a while ago, but it was just the other day that we learned anything substantial about the new shooter from Bungie, the studio best known for Halo and “making the Xbox a viable console”.

In an hour-long livestream, Bungie showed off the game, spoke about its many features and changes, and generally raised hype just a bit beyond the reasonable parameters. They also revealed a very strange little tidbit that should really be shared before any PC gamers get too excited for this project.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, the trailers.



From the makers of the acclaimed hit game Destiny, comes the much-anticipated action shooter sequel, Destiny 2. Experience an all new cinematic story campaign, innovative cooperative gameplay, and intense competitive multiplayer as you journey across unexplored worlds to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities.


I’m getting real sick of this robot guy. We know you want to make the next Handsome Jack, Destiny, but this guy isn’t it.

Anyway. The game launches September 8th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, marking the first time the Destiny series will be playable for the Master Race. But if you were thinking you could snag your copy over Steam or GoG, think again: you’ll need to use Blizzard’s client launcher, formerly known as Battle.net, if you want to play Destiny.

Now, Destiny 2 is being published by Activision, who also owns Blizzard, so it’s not as if this is a completely random thing, but it’s still really random. It will mark the first time that a non-Blizzard game will use the Blizzard launcher, and it certainly makes a statement on how the company will approach third-party software and mods (not kindly). It’s also, for lack of a better term, far less convenient than Steam or GoG, so it’s kind of a kick in the teeth to the 2% of the PC gaming world who doesn’t play Overwatch already.

Still. It is what it is. Better than Windows Live or Origin, I suppose.
