Destiny 2 gameplay reveal live report Finished

Happy shooty space face day! After what feels like an eternity, we're finally getting our first look at Destiny 2 in action tonight. What will the reveal hold? We know it's now on PC as well as console, and being freed from the last generation should mean it's a little more shiny, but everything else is a mystery. Oh, it's just like going to the Cryptarch with a nice new engram. Let's hope we get an Exotic rather than a dirty Common.

We should get to see a good amount of the game - and perhaps also get word of the upcoming Destiny 2 beta.

Wesley Yin-Poole is on the ground at the event in Los Angeles, while we'll all be watching at home and getting involved. Join us from 6pm BST!

    Looks much the same, which isn't a bad thing. Destiny was fine up until it wasn't, unfortunately that proved to be sooner than I'd hoped
  • avoidconfusion 7 days ago

    Sorry am I the only one who is not impressed? Better graphics? Yep, check... but other than that? Looks like the same old shit.
  • massimilianomeschino 7 days ago

    the funny thing is that warframe did all of this "new stuff" something like 4 years ago, and in the 4 years passed it has become a HUGE game. free.fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...
  • Captiosus 7 days ago

    I'm glad I don't give a damn about PVP because 4v4 only Crucible in 2017 is nothing short of a joke. Not on modern day console hardware. Not on a game coming to PC. Not when you consider Bungie's past efforts with Halo's Big Team Battle.At least there will be loads of PVE content to keep me entertained. I just foresee a lot of PVP-only players bailing and Destiny 2's PVP being the butt of many jokes on PC communities.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @Uncompetative, as they say an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @Uncompetative, thanks you said it much better than I could have. Destiny is a product of the world at the time and online was being scrutinized for bullying and people just being absurd to other individuals. Bungie did what they thought was best, I have made a lot of friends from Destiny alone, all met through someone politely asking if I wanted to join a Raid, became friends with the entire party. Then you have some in the party who aren't so nice, you avoid them outside of raiding.
  • obidanshinobi 7 days ago

    @Perrjoss Yes they do, Activision merged with Vivendi (which owned Blizzard) to become Activison Blizzard. Activision and Blizzard are subs of Activision Blizzard.
  • Sgt_Petter 7 days ago

    @MathiK, I agree, it would be the difference of "probably buying one copy", to "definitely buying two copies" for me.
  • internisus 7 days ago

    The thing is there was no Destiny 1 on PC. So everyone who played Destiny 1 and wants to play Destiny 2 on PC has a console account, and we shouldn't be abandoning those accounts and those friends in the change to PC.I don't think anyone's expecting real-time cross-platform *play*, but the characters we use and the progress we make and the loot we earn should be accessible from any platform.
  • MahtiK 7 days ago

    Crossplatform accounts and play needs to happen.I guess I've already given up on splitscreen and as ridiculous as it sounds - thinking of buying a second Xbox (and setting up another TV) just for Destiny 2 :(
  • Sgt_Petter 7 days ago

    So no mention of cross-platform persistent progress. I guess it's safe to say it won't be a thing then. :(
  • Perjoss 7 days ago

    @obidanshinobi Activision do not own Blizzard
  • HENGTEK-gaming 7 days ago

    @ISmoke. Thanks, I've never noticed before. Then again, I don't watch live events (including this), as I'm a bit reluctant to jump onboard any popular hype train, so that's probably the reason why.
  • internisus 7 days ago

    Okay, so now we know how the PC version will be delivered. How will accounts work? I want to hear that accounts are cross-platform.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil Of course they were wrong. Once you have to resort to third party websites and applications just to play a game, you know that the developers have gone wrong.
  • Xelha 7 days ago

    aka we don't have to give Steam 30% of our revenue.
  • obidanshinobi 7 days ago

    Partnered? Activision own Blizzard FFS
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    Wait no Steam release at launch? How long will that last?
  • DocAndKey 7 days ago

    Wow, that's a surprise.
  • Eruanno 7 days ago

    Wait, Battle.net? Didn't they kill off that name for "Blizzard App"?
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    No Steam release is a big, big gamble.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @Superfurry, speaking like you do you fail to understand that the fact that you misunderstood that they made the game that way because they wanted to keep certain elements that can arise in the community to a minimum. I have lots of multiplayer games and while you find well mannered players, but you will come across more vapid players who can't play a game and keep their emotional outbursts in check. With Destiny's huge community, you think they were so wrong? Do you?
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Blizzard? Wow.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    Overall I'm very excited to see how this works out on PC, which needs a game like this. I think if they get things right it will be huge on PC too.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    @superfurryIf you want matchmaking that badly, its best to ask them about it, over the course of the game, which should be up to 2020, with dlc combined. We'll learn more at E3, so chill. It'll be alright.
  • Centrale1 7 days ago

    Not the tree!!!
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil Seriously? Blaming a game's community on refusing to implement proper match-making? You're inventing excuses to give Bungie a pass for locking the majority of people who bought the game out of the (very limited) content they paid for.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    @SavageEvilIts that kind of thing that spoils a game. I don't do chat anymore because of mouthy sweary types, but on consoles & PC it isn't as bad as it once was. Rating player system would help on that front.
  • Centrale1 7 days ago

    Hmmm... "smells like strike team spirit"? *ducks*
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @superfurry, it's lazy in what way? They made a decision because of what is already available to them metrics. Have you ever played online multiplayer with randoms and have come across the rhetoric, filthy and disgusting players who call themselves gamers spout to one another? They attempted to avoid having that headache using their own approach. What is lazy is doing absolutely nothing and just throwing it out there just like CoD without any thought given. They attempted, which is far from lazy
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    @SavageEvilYeah, well I was going to buy the original game but stopped after the problems arose. I said I'd wait for the sequel so yeah, on PC I'd jump in, once I can build a new gaming rig or wait for Scorpio.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Whatever about the raids, keeping people out of the Nightfall Strikes was just lazy.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @SpaceMonkey77, it looks like it's building on what works. I can only commend that, but I don't trust Activision with them attempting to make money after the purchase of the game. That is my biggest concern.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    Matchmaking should be in there, but might come later, after play feedback. Request matchmaking and they should make it happen.
  • Xelha 7 days ago

    Not at all. WoW matchmaking is a coin flip to see how toxic your group is.
  • sherpa1984 7 days ago

    Destiny sherpas?
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Bungies excuses for a lack of matchmaking were always weak. Much more technically complex games like WoW manage matchmaking with ease and it works.
  • pelican_ 7 days ago

    Hmm. Blaming toxicity for the lack of matchmaking is nonsense.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    @SavageEvilWell it looks good. Too many games to play, another to add to the list. Clans is okay but I don't do those, as much, prefer to play with whoever's good. If it gives points for drilling others in the game, then that's a huge bonus. Some of the best fun comes when some don't know a game as much as you.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @LIttleSparra Wrong Raids are meant for those up to the challenge, there is no compulsion to play any Raid aside from you wanting to do it, it isn't necessary to even complete the game. Find an MMO FPS shooter like Destiny, I'll wait.
  • pelican_ 7 days ago

    Custom Banners?!?!? Amazing!
  • obidanshinobi 7 days ago

    What is she rambling about
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil Huh? Because raiding isn't single player it gets a pass in having just one raid? Crucible, Strikes and 1 Raid wasn't enough in Destiny 1 and it may not be enough in Destiny 2.
  • DocAndKey 7 days ago

    This girl seems sweet
  • LittleSparra 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil No, the content for the diehards is raids. Compare Destiny to any big successful MMO in terms of content and it's night and day.
  • Centrale1 7 days ago

    If you die in the game, you die for real! confirmed
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @superfurry adding in multiple raids is going to fix that how? The content is the main story line and not the Raid itself. The Raid is meant to be something for team based play, can you complete the Raid by yourself? Raid is not part of the single player in the least, it has never been. It is multiplayer content which consists of Crucible, Strike Playlists and 1 Raid per content release.
  • andrewrafter 7 days ago

    Was expecting it to look a little more, you know, next gen.
  • internisus 7 days ago

    Earth, Nessus, Titan, and Io. I hope this doesn't mean we won't be seeing the old worlds again, too! I was excited about going to places like Venus and the Moon with the new openness and activities of the sequel.
  • pelican_ 7 days ago

    Watching this in a cinema is odd ;)
  • Xelha 7 days ago

    Destiny 2, now with World of Warcraft style maps, icons and world quests.
  • Perjoss 7 days ago

    hopefully the lore is in the game this time rather than on a website
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    @Savage I can understand some skepticism because many gamers are wary of getting burned as they did previously. Iron out the kinks and gamers will have more faith and play it. Looking good so yeah.
  • internisus 7 days ago

    Oh, dang; all the activities exist within the world. Like, instead of patrols, you go to a place and can do everything: missions, strikes, etc. That's what we wanted. Now he's talking about side missions called Adventures. Mysterious locations called Lost Sectors.The gameplay we saw was very familiar; here is where things are new and different.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil Because one of the biggest criticisms aimed as Destiny was a lack of content.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @superfurry, pretty sure that Destiny has 1 Raid per story line thing aside from House of Wolves. Why would there be more than one?
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Again "A brand new raid".Just one?
  • LittleSparra 7 days ago

    @SavageEvil think you may have missed a trick there.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    @Martin Robinson, what exactly is the point of a redundant question at a Destiny event, "people really like Destiny, eh?" Why are you even there? Logic is a fleeting thing with reality more and more. You're at the event for Destiny and you wonder and put in writing a redundant hyperbole of a question? Mind Blown! I wouldn't even go if I didn't like it, send someone who wants to cover it not the resident cynic.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    "Strikes are back and there's a new strike."One?
  • DocAndKey 7 days ago

    "A" new strike?
  • the-Axtor-show 7 days ago

    Start from zero. add full price tag. insert 1 or 0.5 raids. trickle out near full price updates. Rinse. repeat. But we get a tank....yippee.
  • SpaceMonkey77 7 days ago

    Love the engine. Would love to play it. Missed the first game so yeah, I'd jump in this time. Campaign is good.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    They're spending a lot of time talking and saying nothing.

    Yeah it looks cool. Something for the future. Kind of seen much of this via Halo. Jest kidding. Will look forward to playing it.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Bungie need to base matchmaking on what Blizzard do in WoW.
  • Technoishmatt 7 days ago

    f me, "revealing" 3vs3 going to 4vs4... "we went back to first principles". Nobody else does 3vs3. Gah. I hate my cynical self.
  • SavageEvil 7 days ago

    Is there a dedicated LFG in game so we can avoid match making RAID, no chance I want to deal with AFK'ers and drop outs that randoms bring to the game during Strikes to any Raid.
  • pelican_ 7 days ago

    The Traveller gives zero fucks.
  • superfurry 7 days ago

    Would love if there was some space combat. Bungie already proved they can do it well in Halo Reach.

    @Martin Robinson is it so you can see nipples easier?

    PSA regarding PC footage:"FYI - PC gameplay is 100% not recordable at this event. Only PS4.

    Why are the comments, for this article, listed on a sidebar, and how do I downvote everyone who likes Detiny? :)
  • internisus 1 week ago

    @uncharted86 I think they have to show or at least talk about PC because there is so much uncertainty around it. We don't know how it will be delivered or even how it will control. If it offers mouse & keyboard, will we be able to use the same account/character on both PC and console if we own the game on multiple platforms? Yes, this is an all-around gameplay reveal, but pre-orders have been available for months and they have to address some of these questions.
  • AzureBonds76 1 week ago

    Sup my EuroGamers.... am looking forward to this on the PC...Destiny was a let down in many ways (especially after they nerfed content when you didn't buy the DLCs), but I have many fond memories as well. Am hoping that the PC community is more friendly than the PS4 one -- the main reason that I skipped out on the DLC stuff is the simple fact that I didn't have any people I felt cozy enough to hang out with for a few hours in The Vault of Glass. In game matchmaking with filters please.
  • SpaceMonkey77 1 week ago

    Wow, things getting started early today. Hope there's a PC build. Please don't mess it up this time.
  • uncharted86 1 week ago

    I don't think there will be any PC footage shown, due to the Sony partnership. It will all be on PS4 Pro, like how they mention PS4 Pro hands on for those attending the event in this blog post: https://blog.us.playstation.com/2017/05/17/destiny-2-gameplay-reveal-tomorrow-watch-live/

    @flooff it will still be mostly an multiplayer online game where it's all about the end-game content. My educated guess is that Destiny 2 will feature more story stuff but the 'meat' will still be grinding those strikes / raids / etc for loot.
  • flooff 1 week ago

    I never actually played Destiny 1, I was put off by the seeming lack of support/story campaign for solo players. Will be interested if the new game improves upon this.

Eagle-eyed fans have found the image below hidden away on Bungie's own site. Looks like the Cabal's attack on Earth from the beginning of the game.

Boots on the ground and back to his roots.

"Wesley Yin-Poole is on the ground at the event in Los Angeles"But does he have boots on that ground?

Bungie appears to have pulled that previous image, but here it is again:

Wes is outside the venue now. "We're shuffling in. It is hot," he tells me.

17:07 By Tom Phillips

"The dude from The Wire who does a Destiny voice just walked past."

(That'll be Lance Reddick. Apparently he also plays the game. But does he play a Titan irl THAT IS THE QUESTION)

"I'm slowly walking the red carpet with everyone else," Wes continues to inform us. I believe we may soon be able to see a picture.

Hello world! I'm in LA for the Destiny 2 reveal. I'm sat down in a big room with a big screen and some big banners. 35 minutes to go!

17:27 By Wesley Yin-Poole

I don't know much about Destiny 2, but I've heard the Traveller is sick. Travel sickness, perhaps?

17:29 By Wesley Yin-Poole

I've heard there's coffee somewhere. I'm going on a mission to find it. Need 2 others plz must have Gally

Do we think Activision will stick to calling Destiny a shared-world shooter, or come up with some other vapid marketing phrase?

Inexplicably this is sold out.

17:55 By Tom Phillips

17:55 By Tom Phillips

This is Martin's view from inside his local Odeon. He reports it is sold out.

17:55 By Martin Robinson

There are around 300 people who have paid 5.50 each to watch what you're watching at home.

17:56 By Tom Phillips

17:56 By Martin Robinson

A lot of people have bought their own fizzy pop to save the pennies.

17:56 By Martin Robinson

It reeks of nachos.

17:56 By Martin Robinson

Two people out of the 300 will get a Destiny 2 poster at the end of this event.

17:57 By Martin Robinson

I came here fully expecting to be super cynical about the handful of people I expected.

17:58 By Martin Robinson

But you know what? This is kind of awesome and I'm excited to see what's coming.

17:58 By Martin Robinson

I haven't felt this kind of buzz since sitting down to watch Phantom Menace in 1999. And that ended up alright in the end, didn't it?

17:59 By Wesley Yin-Poole

One minute to go!

17:59 By Martin Robinson

As you do expect, audience is 90 per cent male, mid to late twenties.

17:59 By Tom Phillips

I definitely just heard Wes whoop.

17:59 By Martin Robinson

I'd actually rather be here in soggy Greenwich than LA - these people really care!

18:00 By Martin Robinson

Also I got to call someone an SUV wanker when they cut me up on my cycle here in the rain.

18:01 By Martin Robinson

Group of lads with the south London Danny Dyer swagger just walked in with beers.

18:02 By Tom Phillips

Our first look at Destiny 2's settlements, with familiar Destiny 1 NPCs like the Speaker.

18:02 By Martin Robinson

Also yes I'm on my phone in the cinema typing away. I hate me. Sorry.

18:03 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Huge cheers here for the trailer and Luke Smith, game director for Destiny 2

18:04 By Wesley Yin-Poole

New beginning for everyone - that's an important phrase. Clear what Bungie is going for here with Destiny 2

18:04 By Martin Robinson

This is the oddest thing I've ever done in the cinema. And I watched Inland Empire twice in the theatre.

18:04 By Tom Phillips

Cheeky nod to today's Reddit leaks.

18:04 By Martin Robinson

People properly on the edges of their seats here.

18:05 By Martin Robinson

And there was me thinking people would be over Destiny.

18:05 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Changing the way exploring the world works

18:05 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Crucible is now 4v4! That's a big change. Wow!

18:07 By Wesley Yin-Poole

50% of people who reached the level cap did a raid in Destiny. That means 50% of people experienced the best stuff in the game. Trials, Nightfall and Raids will now be available to all players.

18:07 By Tom Phillips

Sounds like we're getting Trials, Nightfall and Raid matchmaking. GOOD.

18:10 By Martin Robinson

Some nerdy laughter when those familiar supers are popped.

18:11 By Tom Phillips

Destiny 2 begins in a smashed up version of The Tower. The amount of time I spent there, climbing that tree

18:12 By Tom Phillips

Sweeperbot cameo

18:13 By Martin Robinson

As you'd expect when watching an internet stream on a 20ft screen, it's a grim smear of action. That hasn't stopped the guy next to me oscillating wildly. I think he's about to explode.

18:13 By Tom Phillips

You can finally see more of the Tower behind those closed doors!

18:13 By Tom Phillips

Spare a thought for Olllld Eeeeva

Centrale1 says:

Tower in ruins... hope the lady who sells skins is okay!

18:14 By Martin Robinson

So many big smiles and 'oh shiiiiiiits' in this screen - people really like Destiny, ey?

18:15 By Tom Phillips

Anyone who played Destiny for so long will know all these characters so well, it's cool to see characters like Amanda Holliday get their moments.

18:16 By Martin Robinson

The Cabal have gone full mecha. I approve.

18:18 By Martin Robinson

I think I just spotted Wes in the audience dressed as his Guardian.

18:18 By Wesley Yin-Poole

That looked like a spectacular story mission. Cool to fight alongside some of the main characters from the Tower.

18:18 By Tom Phillips

RIP Fatebringer.

18:24 By Tom Phillips

Weapons have been redesigned - primary, secondary and heavy have been changed.

18:25 By Tom Phillips

A new subclass for all as well.

18:25 By Martin Robinson

Deep inhalation of breath at the Warlock's Dawnblade super. I love nerds. I love being a nerd.

18:26 By Tom Phillips

So far I've seen the European Dead Zone on Earth, Jupiter and what looks like Mercury.

18:26 By Martin Robinson

'You get a taaaaaank' some guy behind me screams, his voice raising an entire octave during that sentence.

18:27 By Tom Phillips

Are your children old enough to play a shooter game? I am not sure.

18:28 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Lots riding on the Destiny 2 campaign. First game's story was disappointing to say the least!

18:29 By Wesley Yin-Poole

4v4 for all Crucible modes is an interesting change. Will be keen to find out more about that decision today.

18:29 By Martin Robinson

'We've got a new strike, and you're goi g to get to play that today.' No I'm not. I'm going to get to cycle home along the south circular in the pissing rain. Maybe I do wish I was in LA right now.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

Everyone in this cinema screen is seeeeeethig. All we're getting is the chance to win a poster after this.

18:31 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Launch all the activities without going to orbit! That's the best news so far!

18:31 By Martin Robinson

I think there's a screening of King Arthur straight after this. Might see if any of these lads want to come with me.

18:32 By Tom Phillips

Materials! Gotta get that Spinmetal.

18:33 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Patrol sounds a lot better. Oh, and there's a map that shows you when and where public events happen. All good stuff!

18:33 By Tom Phillips

Earth, Nessus, Io, Titan are your four worlds.

18:35 By Tom Phillips

The European Dead Zone is humanity's new home on Earth. The location was once an idea for Destiny 1.

18:37 By Tom Phillips

Saturn moon Titan is an old human colony, looks Mars-like, but set on water. Nessus is a planetoid consumed by Vex, looks Venus-like.

18:37 By Tom Phillips

Not a huge look at Io. Each of the non-Earth locations is the base of either Cayde, Zavala or Ikora.

18:39 By Tom Phillips

Destiny 2 has clans! Just like Destiny 1

18:39 By Tom Phillips

But better.

18:40 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Clans coming into the game is great. Was always an afterthought on the website.

18:40 By Tom Phillips

Shared rewards is good. Will help those who play less often or aren't as good, like Martin.

18:42 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Guided Games is a system where clans and solo players can meet to play co-op stuff. It's not quite matchmaking for the raid, but it's getting there!

18:43 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Kind of like in built looking for group, but looking for clan

18:43 By Tom Phillips

This is great support for Destiny sherpas who want to help others, and those who want to meet that raid fireteam requirement of six.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

Oi!

18:44 By Tom Phillips

It's okay Martin I got rez

18:47 By Wesley Yin-Poole

The Farm is the name of the new social space. I wonder if there are horses?

18:48 By Chris Bratt

Noseworthy is a great surname! That's all I've got, sorry.

18:49 By Tom Phillips

Almost said shared-world there. ALMOST

18:53 By Martin Robinson

More fistbumps and smiles here in the audience during tht trailer. Nice one Bungle!

18:54 By Martin Robinson

Have I won a Destiny 2 poster? Only five minutes until I find out.

18:54 By Tom Phillips

Beta "later this summer".

18:55 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Brief mention of a beta later this summer from Eric Hirshberg there.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Wait the guy next to me just picked up my envelope and put it in his bag.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

FFS.

18:55 By Wesley Yin-Poole

We're playing on PS4 Pros today, Hirshberg just said.

18:55 By Tom Phillips

Any more big announces, Eric?

18:56 By Tom Phillips

Anything for PC?

18:56 By Tom Phillips

Destiny 2 is coming to Battle.net, aka the Blizzard app.

18:57 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Looks like the PC version will be on Battle.net, Blizzards's platform.

18:57 By Martin Robinson

A collective WTF here as Mike Morhaime of Blizzard comes on screen.

18:57 By Wesley Yin-Poole

That's exclusive to Battle.net for Destiny 2. No Steam release then!

18:57 By Tom Phillips

Bratterz will have to play Destiny 2 now.

18:58 By Martin Robinson

There's your megaton.

18:58 By Wesley Yin-Poole

RIP Overwatch.

18:58 By Wesley Yin-Poole

Right, that's the end of the gameplay reveal! I'm off to play the game!

18:59 By Martin Robinson

This looks like a if video game and I would like to play it I think thanks.

18:59 By Martin Robinson

I meant to say fun silly phone. I'm off to Pizza Hut.

18:59 By Tom Phillips

Thanks for joining us everyone - Wes will have hands-on impressions very soon.

10:33 By Martin Robinson

Guy in the urinal just started up a conversation with two kids, both around 10, with his sword still in-hand. 'What you guys play? Xbox or PlayStation?' 'Xbox' they reply shyly. 'Waaaaaaah,' the guy snorts, 'Xbox for kids innit'.

19:06 By Martin Robinson

Fanboys, everyone.

10:33 By Martin Robinson

Pretty sure there's a similar scene playing out in Los Angeles right now as Eric Hirshberg relieves himself tbh.
