Destiny 2's mysterious Black Armory expansion doubles when hobbyists come first

To this day, the details of Destiny 2's next expansion are mysterious. In addition to a simple Battle.net listing with a new activity called "The Lost Forges," the usual shopping list for new quests and exotics, and a picture of a robot vendor, there's little information on what the DLC will actually contain. Which is pretty weird considering that it will be released on December 4th ̵

1; so next Tuesday – and it's even stranger, considering that Activision was disappointed about the "underperformance against our expectations" of Forsaken, who has expressed great expansion, was released in September.

One good reason for the silence is that Black Armory will not be built like the other small extensions of Destiny 2 – the dull curse of Osiris and the much better Warmind, both of which added a series of cutscenes campaign missions. In June, Bungie announced that for the second year of Destiny 2 in addition to the free seasonal updates that all players received, such as Revised Pinnacle Weapons new content was delivered via a . Annual Pass which costs $ 34.99 (£ 29.99) and includes three enhancements that are not otherwise available separately.

These three enhancements – Black Armory, Joker's Wild and Penumbra – there is no traditional story campaign, and the content is distributed over several months rather than at a time first day published. All of this gives the players who were burned by the game in the past (most players) many reasons to take a break before throwing money at the season ticket. Today, Bungie belatedly lifted the veil of Black Armory and gave us a glimpse of what was in store about a developer vidocs you can see embedded above.

We now know that the robot is an exo named ADA-1 and she will be our arms dealer in Black Armory. During the Blacksmith Forge beginning today, annual ticket holders are accused of tracking down the lost Golden Age weapons of three different armorers families of Nordic, Japanese and French families (you can see a few) examples of their work among the new exotic weapons the gallery below). The search leads you to four Lost Forges, each of which is a new activity reminiscent of Destiny 2 & # 39; further modes, the Escalation Log, and the Blind Well. The main difference is that Lost Forges has three players matchmaking – so do not hang around like a spare tail at a wedding.

Black Armory will feature 5 exotic weapons

Bungie has also released a new roadmap containing all upcoming year's content and free updates for all players contains. You can find that below.

Is a handgun in your pocket or …

The lost forges take place in new areas of existing targets and are also timed, meaning they are unlocked during the season (see timetable). What sounds like a funny throttler, but given the speed with which Destiny's most dedicated players play content, this is an approach that aims to avoid the drought between the big releases that plagued Destiny from the start.

The Black Armory also raises the power cap to 650 and spawns a new exotic quest line for a returning weapon, similar to the last hunt for Donnerlord, but hopefully a bit more involved. The quest will begin on January 29th and the reward will be The Last Word, a popular fan-fire hand cannon that experienced PvP players have asked for return. Bungie has definitely improved in fan service over the past few extensions, but hopefully there are some less-anticipated surprises in the Black Armory as well.

"Hello, yes, I found this in a chocolate bar and claim that it can be brought to the Magic Weapon Factory."

For the dedicated PvE fans, Black Armory is launching a new attack on December 7th. Bungie has dropped the "Lair" moniker in describing the next robbery because he is billed as larger than Spire of Stars but smaller than Last Wish. In addition, we only know that it is in the ruins of the last city in the world and that there are vehicle sections with your Sparrow jet bikes. As for the exact circumstances of Black Armory, remains to be seen. I know that there will be no new strikes, which is a bit disgusting as one of the new top weapons has to grind this playlist.

New ways to play

David "Deej" Dague [19659028] Yesterday I talked to Bungie's longstanding communications director David "Deej" Dague to see how Black Armory differs from previous extensions. I started by asking about the inherent tension between creating an expanse full of secrets and trying to get people to part with money for the annual pass. I started by asking if he could even write exactly what is in the extension on a piece of paper and give it to me.

"No, we can not – and I think it's good that the annual pass is one thing that's keeping its promise over time," said Deej. "Season of the Forge is an opportunity for players to return to the Tower and it has something to offer for every player, and when players start showing off with these new weapons and equipment, it will lead to the ultimate Destiny." Question: "Hey, that's great, where did you get it from? & # 39 ;, then new players will meet ADA-1 in the Black Armory and embark on these quests to discover the Lost Forges.

The annual pass is one thing that keeps its promises over time.


I asked Deej about Activision's disappointment over Forsaken's performance in this recent Black Armory win "I'm not a business analyst and I'm not sure what these other statements are about," he said. "We're always anxious to bring Destiny to it a fun game that enlivens people and activates people with their imaginations, earns new rewards and enjoys themselves, and when their love of this game passes into other people's lives and they invite their friends to play with them, that's all a welcome development.

We also talked about changing the structure and whether it is going to be the highest possible raw value in terms of new equipment and things to play, and here Deej found that Black Armory offers a better deal, mainly because of the replayability of its activities. "I think that in terms of maintaining the Destiny final, it will be far better than another multi-hour movie campaign and a community that wants a hobby more than just something comes and goes the period of one week.

I agree that what Destiny 2 does not need it now, yet another narrow slice of story missions, though I'm worried that the Lost Forges will stale, unless their mechanics are much more interesting than the Blind Well, at least every Forge will have their own loot Pool ha ben, whose lack was one of the biggest problems with the well.

In general, I am optimistic about the perspectives of Black Armory. Leave, as corrected in our review the majority of the sins of vanilla Destiny 2. It is now a slightly more hardcore experience that offers many reasons to sign up in the months that Dreaming City needs to reveal its secrets. By giving up campaign missions, Bungie can now concentrate on creating more of those intriguing, repeatable activities, such as the Whisper of the Worm mission and the Shattered Throne dungeon. In short, I hope Black Armory doubles because it pleased the players who stayed in the bad times.

Toward the end of my conversation with Deej, I clarified a few more details with a series of quick questions. So he handled them:

PCG: Will Machine Guns Get Munmo Reserve and Scavenger Perks?

Deej: Yes.

PCG: Will you bring more legendary equipment and equipment for the first year to fill the loot pool?

Deej: Does not have to.

PCG: Are we going? to get some Hunter capes that look just as good as the ones the speaker sold?

Deej: That's subjective!

PCG: Do Titans no longer have shoulder pads the size of hatchback cars because of the screenshots?

Deej: I do not know.

The new Lost Forge activities seem to be related to the throwing of these bullets.

PCG: Who is [notorious Destiny leaker on Reddit] & # 39; [19659062] anonthenine "and how much trouble did he personally cause you?

Deej: Me personal?

PCG: Yes, you are the comedian

Deej: I have a German Shepherd who loves me very much, and when I get home at the end of the day I just go to see that – so he was not a problem I personally I was a Bungie fan before I came to Bungie, so I understand the fascination … But I always say to the people in the community, "Let's go say, what we will really achieve when the time comes, you I warmly welcome you to your conversations between now and then. "

In rare cases, I've turned to community friends and told them that they have theirs Do not waste time with the ambient pipes in the farm. No Morse Code that is an AR G leads – but in terms of reddit theories and wild speculation, this is all part of the culture of the internet and the people who play their hobby and play a video game, so it does not bother me as much as you might think.

PCG: Why should I use an Izanagis Burden sniper rifle over Whisper of the Worm?

Deej: Because you dig it. Maybe you are an impractical player like me. Maybe you like what it sounds like! I have a dead orbit gun, it's not the best, but cracking the striker on the back of the shell … It wakes me up.

The armory opens

I say it The same thing I feel with the Gambit sniper rifle. As an avid addict with over 1,500 hours in Destiny 2, I'm obviously excited to jump in Black Armory. It's a bit difficult to reconcile Bungie's seemingly more hardcore focus and Black Armory's previous secrecy with Activision's desire to re-activate the core (bleurgh). But honestly, that's the problem of accountants. The biggest problem with Destiny was the impossibility for me that Bungie created enough material to keep the players fed up in the interim months. Black Armory and his sibling expansion seem geared completely to solving this question. We'll see exactly what the answer will be next week.

The new armor looks cute, and tests the new exotic fusion rifle that the middle guardian holds.
