After confirming that the Tower from Destiny is destroyed at the beginning of Destiny 2, Bungie revealed a new social space for the sequel dubbed the Farm. Now, gamers can get a glimpse at the upcoming Destiny 2 social space in a new video.
The video comes courtesy of IGN, and takes Destiny fans on a tour of the Farm in Destiny 2. During the tour, Bungie’s Ryan Ebenger talks through some of the features gamers can expect from the Destiny 2 social space.
One of the first features mentioned is new, unique activities available for players at the Farm. However, Ebenger didn’t share many details about what most of these activities will entail. However, the video does show off a new area where Guardians can play soccer together, with working goals and a decent sized pitch. Those who played Destiny will know how much fun kicking a ball around the social space can be. With Destiny 2, it looks like players won’t have to rely on their own imaginations to play games together while they wait for their friends to organize their loot or complete challenges.
Destiny 2 will also feature Tyra Karn as the primary Cryptarch at the Farm. In Destiny, Karn was the Cryptarch-like character in the Iron Temple who would give players their rewards after completing missions and challenges. The Awoken archivist has now set up shop at the Farm and will continue her efforts to aid Guardians along their journey.
Toward the end of the video, Ebenger mentions how the team at Bungie has been mindful of creating ways for gamers to enjoy the social space and set themselves apart when in the area with 25 other players. This includes flare items they can show off, as well as unique activities and discoveries they can find. Much like in Destiny, where players found unique ways to climb areas in the Tower, it seems Bungie is hoping players will see others enjoying fun activities and discoveries in the Farm and follow suit.
It’s likely that gamers will get a chance to try out the new Destiny 2 social space in the upcoming beta, which is set to launch in a couple weeks. Since the focus of the beta is for Bungie to test the backend systems, it’s expected the company will give players a chance to try the PvP arena as well as a fully loaded social space.
So far, Destiny 2 is shaping up to be a fun and visually impressive sequel to 2014’s Destiny. As the release date gets closer, there will undoubtedly be additional details revealed that will help grow excitement for the sci-fi shooter.
Destiny 2 is expected to release on September 6, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and October 24 for PC.
