Here's what happened at the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal

Frank Williams | 19 May, 2017, 19:57

Bungie and Activision took that criticism and used it to fuel the campaign for Destiny 2. "Destiny 2 has a great story, an iconic new villain, awesome characters you want to go on an epic adventure with, and of course, tons of the fantastic gameplay that Destiny is known for".

What's up with the story?

Dominus Ghaul, the leader of the Red Legion of the Cabal alien race, believes that his people should be Guardians, and not humanity and is intent on showing the Traveller the error of its ways, and take the Traveller's light for himself.

"In Destiny 2, solo players looking for groups can team up with Clans for challenges like Raids and Nightfalls", Bungie said during the livestream. PC fans will finally get a chance to get aboard the Destiny community.

Above: Oh the places you'll go. Each planet will have a map that pinpoints and showcases everything there is to do on these mysterious new worlds. The world of Destiny were attractive, but fairly empty aside from the roving packs of enemies. The original Destiny's Crucible featured mostly 6v6 playlists, so this looks like a move to better cater to a more hardcore, potential esports audience.

Cavaliers get off to quick start in rout of Celtics
Isaiah Thomas , who averaged 27 points in the series against Washington , finished with 17 on 7-for-19 shooting. For the Cavaliers , the core is intact, yet still they added firepower in Kyle Korver and Deron Williams .

Another great addition is the ability to launch all the awesome new activities with out going into orbit! The two juggernauts will partner together so Destiny 2 on PC will run on Blizzard's widespread and powerful Battle.net servers (no longer called Battle.net, but you get the gist) so Bungie doesn't have to create a whole new network client and worry about the logistics of another millions-player strong online platform. There are new class powers too, including Dawnblade, the Titan's Sentinel, the not-Captain-America-shield, and the Arcstrider.

Bungie is also allowing players to have more freedom when it comes to weapons slots. The developer is making this possible by introducing Clans into the game. In an interview with Heavy and other foreign outlets, Shaw said that the game would run at 30 FPS on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Who knows, maybe there will even be cross-promotional stuff between games, like a Diablo III themed set of gear in game.

A first look at gameplay! Destiny 2 now lets players drop straight in to the game world, where they can still patrol like in the first game, doing simple missions for small rewards, but also explore more generally: finding new characters, performing sidequest-style "adventures" for them, and tracking down "lost sectors".

To make your life even easier, we've embedded the YouTube player above, so simply head back here at 6pm BST tonight to watch the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal live.
