Destiny 2: Does it Have Split Screen?

The original Destiny saw various timed events taking place over the game's period, and Destiny 2 will hopefully be the same. It has brought up the never before sorting of confusion about in which h console shall the game be better. As the servers for developer Bungie's new sci-fi shooter went live this evening, a massive crowd fired up their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems all at once.

Many players are already streaming the game on Twitch, but steer clear if you're looking to stay spoiler-free, especially since the sequel's story is supposed to be much better this time around. The adventures in the game are hinted in the latest trailer of Destiny 2. There's a Pierce Brosnan-impersonating sniper who serves as your faction representative for the European Dead Zone. Other random players will be helping you if necessary. With the newly-redesigned destination map, my Fireteam and I were able to seamlessly transition between activities, the Crucible, and Strikes without ever sitting in orbit twiddling our thumbs.

Destiny 2 is now available, and Stevivor sadly didn't gain access to the same 30-hour early playthrough that other outlets were privy to. Most weapons are attuned to only have one type of element, but Borealis can swap between all three. All classes have abilities based on their sub-classes, with magic attacks powered by Solar, Void and Arc-based magic.

One set of armor per class: the Tesseract Trace for Warlocks, Terra Concord for Titans, and Icarus Drifter for Hunters. Exclusive to Game in the United Kingdom, the Destiny 2 Collector's Edition comes with everything in the previous editions along with a customisable "frontier bag" that, while it looks disgusting to me, contains a 15in laptop or tablet sleeve and is festooned with buckles and flaps. I am sure that Sparrow Racing will return as well as all those insane masks and heads. The tank-like Titans use strong attacks and throw up shields to block damage. But apparently, none of them seems to work for players.

Cayde's Pathfinder - Acquire each Hunter subclass. Marksman's Dodge reloads your equipped weapon while Gambler's Dodge deals melee damage to nearby enemies. Thankfully, it turns out that Destiny 2 has listened to the fans and has taken a look in the mirror: the product is one that I -so far- thoroughly enjoy.

Survival is similar to Skirmish in the original, and sees teams trying to whittle down their opponent's reserve of eight respawns.

While the main game will keep us busy for a while, we might find that after a few months we will need something new.

Despite the foibles around the original Destiny launch - namely its lack of meaty content - Bungie is hoping people jump right into Destiny 2 with zero hesitation. For example, PC gamers will have a chance to see what all the fuss is about beginning October 24th, and the first expansion is expected to release by the end of the year. Whether that is actually what we'll start with at launch is a matter we'll be seeing tomorrow.

The following Destiny 2 Servers Release Time Format was made by Reddit user JMock78. Of course, players may want to take the time to properly level their Guardians before rushing into any Nightfall Strikes, as they will likely be some of the most challenging content available in the game at launch.
