Destiny 2 Memorializes The Accomplishments Of Returning Players
It's not a tangible reward, but it is a nice moment.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
Destiny 2 is in many a fresh start for all players. Even if you were an incredibly hardcore enthusiast of the original Destiny, you aren't walking into Destiny 2 any more powerful or well-equipped than someone who never played the first game. There will be rewards for returning players, but before that, Destiny 2 starts out with an endearing memorial to your accomplishments in its predecessor.
As pictured below, returning players are greeted in Destiny 2 with a recap of sorts that highlights your major Destiny 1 feats. Along with some gorgeous artwork, it calls out you and the other players you did certain things with, such as completing Destiny's various Raids.
It's ultimately a minor thing, but it is cool to have your effort acknowledged in some way, even if it doesn't have a meaningful impact on how Destiny 2 plays out. You can check out all of the memorials in the gallery above, or get caught up on the original game's plot in our Destiny story recap.
