Destiny 2 livestream

Update: We’re offline right now. We’ll be streaming more Destiny 2 in the coming weeks!

Original: The day is finally here, the servers are finally live, and our Guardians can finally take the fight back to Ghaul. Destiny 2 is out and we’re live streaming the game from the top. In our Destiny 2 livestream, I’ll be jumping in as my Titan, my main and longest running character, but I may switch it up as the night goes on. Join my wife and I as we lose our light, regather the Vanguard, and seek vengeance on Ghaul and the Red Legion for what they’ve done.

You can read my review-in-progress for Destiny 2, where I say that this is Destiny at the best it’s ever been.

A sequel should be many things. It should be familiar. It should be a step forward. It should cultivate the things that worked. It should improve what didn’t. Finding that balance is difficult without either copying too much of what came before or no longer staying true to the original. As old Guardians and new alike take this step into a world without light, Destiny 2 proves that Bungie has taken great care with this balance. There’s a familiar game here, and yet there’s a game all its own. It’s thrilling to start at the bottom again and need to work my way up after three years of feeling powerful.

I could go on and on, but I won’t. Even as much as the story experience has been improved, and many quality of life changes have been implemented, Destiny is all about the endgame. If you aren’t concerned at all about the endgame content, my recommendation is to get Destiny 2 right now. If your hestitation was on story, whether it changed enough from the first, or any other number of small quality of life things, rest assured that Bungie listened to their players and Destiny is better than it’s ever been.

If you missed the Destiny 2 intro that highlights your accomplishments, you can check that out here. We also reviewed the KontrolFreek Destiny 2 Ghost thumbsticks before taking them into battle today. We’ve got lots of Destiny 2 coverage already posted, and lots more coming up, so keep it on PlayStation LifeStyle if you want more.
