With a little less than three weeks to go before Destiny: The Taken King is finally available, fans of the action-RPG are understandably excited. Year One for Destiny has been through some tumultuous ups and downs, but Bungie has maintained that once the sci-fi MMO’s upcoming expansion goes live, the changes that will be implemented ought to make for a completely better experience.
After last week’s first of three Year 2 streams, fans’ wishlist of most wanted features for the game seems to be taken seriously by Bungie since the studio not only revealed plans for old exotics upgrades, but also double the vault space for gear stashes. Today, after recently teasing Dreadnaught Strike details and gameplay, the title’s developers are prepared to delve into a brand new Strike mission within The Taken King involving Guardians penetrating a new area of Oryx’s ship to battle a menacing group of the Cabal baddies led by the fearsome Bond Brothers.
The webcast begins at 11:00 AM PDT / 2:00 PM EDT / 7:00 PM UK on Bungie’s official Twitch channel, and will be hosted by Bungie’s community manager David “Deej” Dague, design lead James Tsai, as well as the YouTube game streamer and community guest Mr. Fruit. We’ll also be hosting the stream, so make sure to tune into the Game Rant channel here.
With yesterday’s Strike trailer teasing mission details, fans should expect to hear a lot more of Nolan North’s vocal chops for the artificial intelligence known as Ghost since the robot spoke some dialogue in the footage. Of course, as many Destiny fans are aware, Nolan North replaced Peter Dinklage as the voice of Ghost during the production of The Taken King due to the popular Game of Thrones actor’s schedule being too busy.
During the fresh Dreadnaught Strike, Bungie is looking to surprise fans with improved combat and for the DLC, especially with their promise that The Taken King Strikes will be more dynamic. Not to mention, the highly anticipated fights against big bad guys ought to be more intense as well, especially with the inclusion of the axe-wielding boss known as Darkblade.
At any rate, some secrets not on the official itinerary are sure to be divulged over the course of the stream, so fans who are desperate for any new information regarding The Taken King should completely clear their schedule and keep their eyes glued on the event. The coverage might also show off some new Guardian subclasses in action – that is, Titan Sunbreaker, Hunter Nightstalker, and Warlock Stormcaller – so there’s no telling what kind of cool stuff will be on display.
Destiny: The Taken King is set to release on September 15, 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
