Now that Destiny 2‘s console release is almost a week away, Activision and Bungie are kicking the marketing campaign for the forthcoming science fiction shooter into overdrive, with the companies having put out several new trailers as of late, as a recent one provided an explanation of the game for newcomers. Now, the publisher and developer have decided to release a trailer highlighting the game’s primary antagonist Dominus Ghaul.
As seen below in Ghaul’s introduction trailer, the Destiny 2 villain is described as a “commander, destroyer, and megalomaniac,” which certainly rings true considering his decision to invade Earth and destroy everything that the Guardians believe in and hold dear. If that weren’t enough to convince players of Ghaul’s badness, with such a deep, gravelly voice and his set of giant, imposing armor on display, it’s easy for fans to immediately recognize that this is a major enemy that needs to be taken down.
As previously revealed by Bungie, Destiny 2‘s story will not focus on The Darkness and instead center its attention on The Light and the Guardians’ relationship with it, as well as the good guys’ struggle against the Cabal baddie Ghaul. Naturally, players will learn even more about the villain from the game’s cutscenes, and should ultimately discover how he managed to unseat the Cabal Emperor, why he’s attacking Earth, and why he’s stealing the Traveler.
Of course, while Ghaul will be quite a treacherous threat to Guardians that needs to be stopped in Destiny 2‘s story mode, in the interest of versatility,Bungie has also stocked plenty more activities for players to undertake in order to keep the overall game engaging. For instance, there ought to be plenty of Public Events, Patrols, Strikes, competitive multiplayer in the Crucible, and much more.
Taking all of this into consideration, fans need not worry about running out of things to do once they finish Destiny 2‘s story and presumably defeat Ghaul, as Bungie already has more content in mind. As a matter of fact, Bungie’s community manager David “DeeJ” Dague recently explained the studio’s philosophy on end game materials, and promised that “there’s a far greater variety of things to do to enjoy your Guardian lifestyle after the final cutscene has played out.” So, with any luck, Destiny 2 will have a much more satisfying story than its predecessor and won’t have a single content drought to speak of following its launch.
Destiny 2 is slated to release on September 6, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it comes out on October 24, 2017 for PC.
