Destiny 2 fans have been on quite the rollercoaster ride. Hopes for the franchise were really high when the sequel launched. Surely, Bungie had learned the lessons from the first game and maintain the momentum they built with the updates to that title. Things started to go downhill when the Destiny 2 launched. The gameplay may have still featured that sweet Bungie goodness but there were still repetitive enemies, the story didn’t make sense, bosses were still bullet sponges, and don’t get me started on the microtransactions. Fans held out hope that the Forsaken expansion would clean things up. And while it did improve the game for fans, Activision lost faith in the title and they parted ways with Bungie. Now, the fans and Bungie hope that the latest update, Shadowkeep, will revive the game’s fortunes.
With Shadowkeep launching in less than a week, Bungie has decided to release a launch trailer for the update. You can check out the video below –
I have to confess, as someone who is not a Destiny aficionado, Shadowkeep just looks more of the same to me. However, I’m sure to the hardcore Destiny fans, this will be like manna from the Gods. Whatever your position, though, I think we can all hope the best for Bungie and the destiny of Destiny.
