So you think you know DES­TINY?

Un­der­stand­ing the Des­tiny 2 ex­pe­ri­ence and why this is a must have AAA block­buster game this sea­son.

HWM (Singapore) - - GEAR -

Hooo boy. Where do we start? Des­tiny 2 is an on­line, shared-world, rst per­son ac­tion shooter. You play a Guardian, a pow­er­ful war­rior im­bued with the Light of the Trav­eler, tasked to pro­tect hu­mankind from alien in­va­sion and the Dark­ness. Only now, the Last City has fallen to the Red Le­gion led by Domi­nus Ghaul…

You know what? It’s go­ing to take a while to ex­plain ev­ery­thing, and we’ve only got this one page, so let’s cut to the chase. We’re not even go­ing to make ‘this game is your des­tiny’ jokes.

IT’S AN EPIC SPACE OPERA

Des­tiny 2 is the space ad­ven­ture you’ve been wait­ing for. Choose be­tween three classes, the heav­ily-ar­mored Ti­tan, the nim­ble sharp­shoot­ing Hunter, or rain re as a War­lock for the re­demp­tion of hu­mankind. Tra­verse worlds to un­lock the se­crets of the Guardians, gather hu­man­ity’s scat­tered he­roes and lib­er­ate the Last City from the evil Ghaul and his Red Le­gion.

EX­PLORE VAST OPEN WORLD MAPS

From Earth to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, each lo­ca­tion in Des­tiny 2 is rich and vi­brant. In­stead of mind­lessly click­ing at menus to ac­cess mis­sions, Des­tiny 2 in­vites you to take a walk, soak in the scenery, and stop to smell the ion­ized laser par­ti­cles. Who knows where you’ll nd your next ad­ven­ture or ex­otic loot.

BE THE YOU THAT ONLY YOU CAN BE

Fully cus­tom­ize your Guardian’s looks, ap­ply Shaders to match the mood of the day, mod your gear, and un­lock all-new sub­classes with pow­er­ful skill com­bi­na­tions to match your playstyle. Des­tiny 2’s ro­bust class and gear sys­tem means you can be the unique flower that you are.

IT’S AN MMO-FPS-ARPG. WHAT?

Des­tiny 2’s shared-world means you’ll also run into other real play­ers on­line. You can choose to ig­nore them and play solo, cre­ate a Fireteam of close knit friends for co-op Strike Mis­sions, or throw cau­tion to the wind and join Heroic Pub­lic Events and Le­viathan Raids with com­plete strangers like an MMO. To­tally your call.

SAT­ISFY YOUR URGE TO TOP LEADERBOARDS

Maybe you want to hone your skills. Maybe an­other Guardian ate your sand­wich. What­ever your rea­sons, head to the Cru­cible and ask for Lord Shaxx. He’ll sort you out with some PvP 4 vs 4 ac­tion. Com­pete in clas­sic death­match and zone con­trol modes, or re­ally cool sound­ing ones like Iron Ban­ner and Tri­als of the Nine. Make other Fire teams fear your name, earn epic re­wards and eter­nal re­spect of your peers.

PLAY ON THE PC

Let’s be frank. You want to play an FPS, you need a mouse and a key­board. Des­tiny 2 on the PC sup­ports 4K graph­ics with un­capped fram­er­ates and ul­tra-wide res­o­lu­tions. This means ev­ery­thing men­tioned above, is go­ing to look so much more epic on a PC.

Why aren’t you scream­ing “Take my money!” yet? What else do you want, hugs?
