What we know so far about Destiny 2, the beta and game editions
Story: According to the official game description, "Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion." Guardians have been stripped of their powers and forced to flee.
Does this mean we've lost our supers? That is uncertain but quite likely. What we do know is, all our loot we spent hours upon hours gathering has been destroyed. In Destiny 2, we will venture out into new worlds, discover new combat abilities and earn sweet loot.
Trailers: The first teaser was shown on Tuesday 28th March and gave us a small insight into Destiny 2's story. The teaser shows our old friend, Cayde, having a drink in a bar while he tells the story of the attack to the sweeper bot.
