Destiny 2 Description
One of the most popular online multiplayer first-person shooter games, Destiny 2 lets players assume the guise of a Guardian. Your task as a Guardian is to protect the last safe city in a dystopian, scifi version of Earth from the different alien threats and the inevitability of Darkness.
As a Guardian, players can choose one of three character classes, whether it is the Hunter, the Titan, or the Warlock. Each class in Destiny 2 also various subclasses to further specialize their abilities and preferred play style. They can then choose from one of three species: the base Human, Awoken, or Exo, to further customize their in-game Guardian avatars.
Destiny 2 allows players to explore story-based and quest exploration through PVE or battle other players in PVP team matches, such as survival and deathmatches. There are also three-man team strike missions and 6-man team raids. Public free roam patrol modes are also available for public events.
As of the New Light free-to-play update, Destiny 2 has had expansions and season passes that have moved the lore and story of the game forward. With the Beyond Light expansion, the original base campaign The Red War and later content (Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and Forsaken) were removed and become occasionally available through the Destiny Vault Content events.
Beginning with Shadowkeep and running through with the most recent expansion The Witch Queen, Destiny 2 has added more PvE areas and missions, as well as new gear and perks for players, while also moving the story of the Guardians into new territory.
