Watch Destiny 2's Gameplay Reveal Live Stream Here Today [UPDATE]

Destiny 2 gameplay debuts today.

86 Comments

The stream has now concluded, and there was a lot of news to be had. You can check out the Destiny 2's first gameplay trailer above and all of other Destiny 2 coverage here or through the links below.

The original story follows below.

At 10 AM PT / 6 PM GMT / 3 AM AEST today Activision and Bungie will host an event for Destiny 2, the eagerly-anticipated sequel to its MMO-like sci-fi shooter. Taking place in Hawthorne, California, the event will feature Bungie developers talking about the title as well as "special guests" making appearances.

Of course, the main draw is the debut of gameplay footage, and you'll be able to see that right here. We'll be hosting the livestream and providing up-to-date news, analysis, and other video coverage during and after the stream. Come back at the specified time and you'll be able to watch the stream through the video below.

The first trailer for Destiny 2 was released on March 30 and it featured returning characters Zavala and Cayde talking about the loss of Earth's Last City. Based on the video, it looks like Bungie will be mixing a little more humor into Destiny this time around.

"Humanity's last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion," Bungie previously said when discussing the sequel. "He has stripped the city's Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee.

"You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity's scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home."

Bungie has also announced Destiny 2's release date alongside special editions of the game. Destiny 2 will have a season pass called the Expansion Pass, which includes "Expansion I and Expansion II, offering brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armor, and gear."

Unlike the first game, Destiny 2 will be available for PC as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Destiny 2 will feature PS4-exclusive content for a limited time until at least Fall 2018. An open beta will be available to everyone sometime this summer, but if you pre-order the game you can play the beta early.

Are there really many adults playing this? For me this looks like a game for a teenage. Much Boom. Boring and flat jokes. Been there, seen that in movies and games 20 years ago.

Destiny 1 The Collection can be bought now for a very good price. I may pick this up instead and wait for reviews of Destiny 2. True, if you paid $120 for something that now costs $30 I understand the annoyance, but you still chose to buy it.

A lot of negative comments here for D2, but I suspect it will sell pretty well.

Pre-ordered Destiny 1 on account of Bungie.

-Bungie failed to deliver the launch title they had been promoting

-Pre-order DLC failed to deliver

-Post DLC, DLC delived too little for too much

-Post DLC ,DLC packages fingered the existing customer base while new players got the best deals.

With this many checkmarks on the how to be a sleazeball checklist, I can no longer blindly trust Bungie. As much as I love the gameplay mechanics and the visuals, I will not be pre-ordering Destiny 2

Anyone feel a little GOW Deja vu on the drop pods?

I really love how people think this 4 v.s 4 is going to make crucible more competitive. Games like CS:Go have way more players per team, and yet it is one of the most competitive games out there. instead of fixing the glaring issues like lag, and the horrid 30 frames or less per second they lower the player count lol. Destiny 2 screams HOOD WINK! This is not a new game it is a DLC/Patch. Not hating on the game just calling it as it is! Good day Guardians!

@sdecker425: That's a poor reason to think they wont improve those thing in the sequel, when there's newer hardware out now and they're making all sorts of other improvements and changes for the second game already. I think you're just trying to find reasons to say something negative.

@Mogan: Game is confirmed to be 30 FPS on console, and no such improvements as you say have been confirmed or they would be touting them!As for the server issues I highly doubt they will fix them knowing Activisions track record with CoD. I am not trying to find reasons to be negative. Why are you blindly on their nuts?

@txuzai: It looks like another Destiny game. Just like all the Halo's look like more Halo, and Gears looks like more Gears, and CoD looks like more Cod, and Uncharted, and pretty much every Bethesda RPG, and most sequels to successful games in general.

@sdecker425: I don't agree with them either. And I suspect that, when Destiny 2 launches, a lot more than "thousand" people are going to go buy it. I'll bet a lot of the folks saying it looks like a DLC buy Destiny 2 at launch as well.

@Mogan: Yea a boat load will buy it. Just like millions buy Madden every year. I t is the end of summer by then,and people want new games so badly they buy anything. My point still stands. Destiny 2 is just a standalone DLC!

You guys learned your lesson about pre-ordering, right?

Regardless, I'm pretty sure this entry won't have the same big start as the first did.

As a Destiny fan, I love the updated visuals, new modes, how the planet's will actually have depth and npcs etc. Yeah after you play 100 or more so hours there will be dlc but that's how all games are now. I'll be buying this for sure. Hope the crucible 4 vs 4 and updates makes it more competitive and fun

Looks cool. Like more Destiny with a bunch of tweaks and new stuff.

Whether or not its worth getting really comes down to how much content what they talked actually represents, and its way too soon to know that. So for right now, I'm optimistic. Really want to know if I can play my characters on all platforms, or if I have to have a separate account for each.

So Destiny 2 is a Battle.net exclusive? Strange I thought they dropped that name for Blizzard App.

As long as Activision is a part of Destiny, expect the game to be chopped up, recycled, and resold as content.

I know for a fact that Bungie said players characters and gear will carry over to a new game. Just like everyone in the game development world, they change their story's or flat out lie about things to make people happy and to get their money.

@Smith7010: Proper recollection and paying attention to things would do you kids a world of good instead of demanding links every time your memory fails. Take some vitamins or something. You're the reason Xbox is still partially popular.

Hahaha wait what? They kept saying One New Strike, One New Raid, 4 new planets. New Campaign. What are they doing for other strikes then? Jamming in all the other strikes from previous Destiny 1 and reskinning that? Holy shit you have to be kidding me. How is that a new game???
