pre-show / reveal event has finished streaming live on Twitch:
For those who don't know, Activision is having a big Destiny 2 reveal event on the 18th. Many Destiny streamers and You Tubers have been invited to play the game, so expect a lot of video coming out of the event.
There's a few days before the event takes place, though, so what do you want to see from Destiny 2? Here are some of my thoughts:
- For me, 60fps is a big one.
- I also don't want to see any existing Destiny sub-classes, unless they're massively reworked. I want everything to feel new, not like an expansion. No "legacy" weapons, either. The less this feels like an add-on, the better.
- Use Borderlands 2 as a blue-print, and give me a co-op experience with a lot of actual content. A 25 to 35 hour campaign would be ideal. Borderlands 2 before DLC is about 30 hours.
- No lore outside of the game itself is also important. Going to a website or a phone app to learn more about the Destiny universe was absurd, given how little world-building the original release of Destiny actually did.
- Strikes and raids that adjust to player count would also be great. Even if the best loot is saved for a six person raid, every player should be able to see all of the game that they paid for.
- Loot storage issues should be a thing of the past. The game should be able to recall any item and its stat and perk rolls that you've ever possessed.
- Also, get rid of the stupid currency limits. That should be true for glimmer as much as it should be true for anything else you can acquire. To have players earning currency or items that can't be added to their total is just poor game design.
- Buff and nerf weapons according to their game mode, not across the board. Just because a secondary weapon that quickly regenerates special ammo is overpowered in PVP, that doesn't mean that you also need to nerf its ammo regen in PVE.
- Speaking of PVP, map voting would be nice. And keep skill-based matchmaking to a separate competitive mode.
