Bungie’s online game has seen a number of updates during its first year, and the recent Forsaken expansion is where it finally hit its stride. In addition to a brand new story where you’ll have to exact revenge for the death of Cayde-6, you’ll be able to acquire a new set of powers and gear for your character, while also exploring an entirely new setting in the form of the Dreaming City. Destiny 2: Forsaken has also increased the amount of weekly events you can take part in. Instead of the standard bounties and repeats of previous missions, unexpected encounters and new story events happen in much greater frequency–gradually expanding the universe. Recently, Destiny 2 saw the return of the exotic Thunderlord machine-gun, one of the more powerful weapons from Destiny 1.
In GameSpot’s Destiny 2: Forsaken review, reviews editor Kallie Plagge stated: “There is a lot to do in Forsaken, so much so that it can be difficult to see it all. That also means that, for the average player, this expansion has a much longer tail than previous iterations of Destiny 2. The variety and flexibility of activities established in the base game still work to make grinding a good time, and Gambit adds a consistently entertaining mode to the roster. The endgame, while difficult to reach, is also where the most satisfaction can be found.”
