Gotta keep those players playing.
Destiny 2 is a huge improvement over the original launch of its predecessor, but its endgame leaves a lot to be desired. From the excessive Exotic drop rate and duplicates to the lackluster PVP events and faction rallies, it’s easy to lose interest in the game and taper off once you’ve experienced every end game activity at least once. However, Bungie is focusing on making several major tweaks to the game’s systems and economy to incentivize players to keep going.
Over at Bungie’s site, here’s a list of changes we can expect going forward:
- New systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits.
- Better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities.
- Better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors.
- Private matches for the competitive community (we are targeting early 2018).
- Crucible tuning like adjusted Supremacy scoring and better spawning rules.
- Better incentives for completing Crucible matches (and penalties for quitting competitive games).
- Continued improvements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, including uniqueness of rewards.
- Changes to make the mod economy more interesting and impactful.
- Ongoing improvements to Exotics, including adjustments to reduce instances of duplication.
- New ways to spend surplus currency and materials (looking at you Legendary Shards).
- An emote interface that allows players to equip Salty, Spicy Ramen, Six Shooter, and Flip Out all at the same time.
There’s no word on when these changes will be implemented, but we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.
Destiny 2 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
