So, that new Destiny trailer looks badass, right?! Well, let’s dive a little deeper and see what we can find. Or, if you’re not into that, just scroll down to the bottom to watch the trailer yourself, see if I care… [please listen to me?]
Okay, anyway, the trailer starts off with the Tower and the city around it in flames. Everything is burning and all the guardians are gathering in the woods on the outskirts of the city.
Right off the bat you can tell Bungie seems to be putting more of an emphasis on story this time around, thank God.
Commander Zavala is standing on a rock, surrounded by Guardians, about to drop a massive pep talk on them.
Fast forward a bit, enter Cayde-6! Apparently he has his own version of the story to tell. He too, is surrounded by Guardians but his Pep-Talk is a bit… different.
Immediately we get that “Lord of the Rings” vibe. The troops are beaten and broken, the leaders take the moment to rally them to a cause where most of them will probably die. Good times.
But enough about them.
How about these new Cabal?
It’s nice to see they made the Cabal less bulky looking. Beach season must be around the corner, am I right? Hopefully we see actual new enemy types this time around instead of the same models with new textures on them. It looks like we will if these doggies have anything to say about it…
We are also made aware of the new “big bad” for Destiny 2. Seems to be some hulking Cabal Leader they call Gary…! Glen…? Ghaul, his name is Ghaul.
They also slip in why none of our stuff will transfer over to the new game, which I thought was pretty clever.
All of your shit was apparently blown up! Real clever Bungie, good one. However, as the trailer comes to a close, Cayde-6 reassures you that “there will be a ton of loot!” Yea so, it sucks all you stuff blew up, but hey, there’s plenty more Gjallarhorns in the cosmos.
All aboard the Hype-Train, Destiny 2 launches September 8, 2017! Honestly though, they could have come up with a better name.
