For all the concerns over the content and pricing of Destiny’s third expansion, the big question is not whether Bungie’s new work offers value for money, but what it intends to do with the old. With the Year One gear pool likely to be phased out, players will need more than just a numerical reason to pack their Fatebringers and Gjallarhorns away. Power creep is a given, then, but quite how you top a pistol that makes enemies explode when you headshoot them, or a rocket launcher with heat-seeking follow-up cluster bombs, we’re not sure. Though we’re certainly looking forward to finding out.
