Bungie Doubles Down on its Plans to Fix What's Wrong with Destiny 2

Destiny 2

Bungie is updating Raid rewards to make them more unique and interesting.

Destiny 2 is set to change in a big way over the coming months, as Bungie has revealed a long list of changes set to come to the game all the way through the fall of 2018.

Bungie says it's making big changes to Destiny 2, in terms of how players earn rewards, how the game's Eververse microtransaction economy works and other aspects of the game that have elicited vocal dissatisfaction from the game's playerbase, in a far-reaching development update.

Many of these changes will be present during Destiny 2's Crimson Days event, which begins February 13. That is in light of controversy over the amount of experience gained. Barrett said that the in-game store, which primarily sells cosmetic items, will be changing in upcoming seasons of Destiny 2.

In spring, alongside the release of Destiny 2's second, untitled expansion, comes a new season for players - during which clans can start earning rewards from scratch again.

First off, Bungie wants to make content availability a lot more clear so that players are always aware of what they have access to and what they don't. This was announced alongside other future updates, as Bungie tries to keep Destiny 2 relevant.

The studio plans to add far more useful rewards to Destiny 2's endgame activities. That's not surprising. But there are some changes happening to "shift the balance" of favoring activity rewards over having to earn them through Bright Engrams. All Crimson Engrams are weighted to new rewards until all new event items are obtained, which means you won't be stuck with base game drops. "We are excited to share the details as soon as we have them worked out". They will now feature mods with Raid-specific perks.

Game director Christopher Barrett detailed a very specific road map of upcoming features in the blog post, which also highlighted a number of points that touched upon several annoyances that numerous hardcore players had. This will be a whole new way of how mods work for all items like armor and weapons.

We are adding text chat to the Tower for the PC version of the game.

There are even some plans that stretch out to autumn 2018, though these are vague bullet points for the time being and only represent a "small sample" of items Bungie is hoping to add in the future. The team is eager to show you what they've been working on.

When multi-emote launches, you will be able to choose which emote you have equipped to each of your four emote slots. We'll be talking to you more directly, and more often, as promised.

Items now only found in Eververse (Ghosts, Sparrows, Ships) will be awarded in other activities, there will be a new "gameplay path" to Eververse engrams and items, and more ways to directly purchase them.
