Bungie held a livestream event for Destiny 2 today, showcasing the first-ever look at gameplay.
Bungie announced that the PC version of Destiny 2 will be using Blizzard’s Battle.net client. This makes Destiny 2 the first third-party game on Battle.net. The PC version will support 4k resolution and uncapped frame rates.
Weapon classes will also be changed from Primary, Secondary and Heavy to Kinetic, Energy and Power. Power weapons consist of fusion, sniper rifles and grenade launchers. Kinetic and Energy weapons make up the rest of the guns such as shotguns and hand cannons. The new weapon classes will allow more freedom of loadouts.
While no new classes have been revealed, Bungie has revealed new super abilities for the Warlocks, Titans and Hunters. Warlocks now have Dawnblade, an aerial sword projectile blast. Titans have Sentinel, which allows Titans to summon a shield and can be used to hit enemies at close range or thrown at enemies at a distance. Hunters are now able to use Arcstrider to summon a staff.
Destiny 2 will also include clans and a new matchmaking system called Guided Games. The new systems will allow for better matchmaking for raids and PvPs.
Destiny 2 will be out on Playstation 4 and Xbox One on 8 September 2017. The PC version has yet to receive a confirmed release date.
