Let’s Talk Destiny • Destiny 3?

#Let’sTalkDestiny —————————— This is way before its due time, as Destiny 3 is likely at least two years away from us. Leakers have claimed that the next Destiny is already in development, to the surprise of no one, and I’m a bit on the curious side for what is most hoped for or expected by the Moot Guardian community. Potential spoilers ahead I suppose, but we have a long way to go before it would be of much consequence. Another tidbit from the most prominent leaker, Reddit’s AnonTheNine, was that D3 will be much more hardcore-focused, with significant RPG elements. *insert massive hype here*

Of course that could be exaggeration and simply reverting back to a D1 style for the classes, but this could be massive for D3 if it’s real. Granted, this is very early in the development cycle for D3 and could easily change. Add in comments from Bungie devs that seem to be angling for a more MMO approach to game design for our future, and this could mean some very good things.

Up next? A zone focused on PvPvE entirely, and not how Gambit handles things. Supposedly a patrol zone with territory capture while fighting against both competing Guardians and our general enemy varieties.

Then we have a controversial element: Guardians of Darkness. We don’t know where this is going, how it’ll be implemented, or if it will even happen at all, but one of the leaks specifically mentions our Guardians gaining the ability to wield the Darkness itself. Is it permanent? A drastic shift in the story, similar to Alliance VS Horde factions in World of Warcraft?

With all of this as a starting point, what are your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for Destiny 3? Do you want all or even any of these rumors to be true? Let me hear what you want, whether realistic or delusional! ————————————- My general take? I wanted Destiny to be more like an MMO from the beginning, so any elements pushing towards that boundary will make me very happy. Heavy RPG elements will give everyone a chance to customize their Guardians in fantastic new ways, so that’s pretty much the dream for taking Destiny to the next level for me. Darkness Guardians are something I mostly take issue with in terms of lore, but I definitely welcome new supers and subclasses. Unavoidable PvPvE zones would be very potentially frustrating if not implemented correctly, but it could also be a ton of fun. The more that gameplay can expand, regardless of the leaks and rumors, the better. I want D3 to be a merging of new concepts and current elements that can grow, being continually built upon by Bungie. The dream is a game that’s built to change over time, like the differences between the Cosmodrome and the Plaguelands. At very least, Forsaken makes me feel like they finally have a firm grasp on the lore now. ————————————- Did I miss something? Probably. Story leaks are left out intentionally, just because so much can still be up in the air. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ PS - AnonTheNine was regarded as being very accurate in the leaked information, but has since deleted his account while also denouncing a few copycats claiming to be him. Be careful in hunting for new info.

    I want cayde 😢

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 4, 2018, 08:37 AM

    It’s extremely unlikely, but he could very well be coming back, though it wouldn’t be our Cayde-6. If he has any chance for an appearance at all, my best guess is with the lore related to Long Slow Whisper and Exos in general.

  • UnfrostedBagel LV.22 Nightmare Dec 4, 2018, 08:41 AM

    True there. I think that if he were to come back he may be that dark guardian you were talking about. Although he may be corrupt, he would still be back in the game. I hope if he returns he is good

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 4, 2018, 09:01 AM

    Not quite. The lore points to our Cayde being truly dead, so if we see anything I would expect some recreation at a Deep Stone Crypt / Clovis Bray facility where a previous version of his consciousness is perhaps saved in their network somewhere. Even with this there wouldn’t be much point, because that wouldn’t be our Cayde.

    There's also the potential new Hunter Vanguard

    There have been rumors of a cayde-9 or cayde-12 or something. It’s a new version of cayde of something from what I’ve heard. These are very very unlikely rumors but thought I’d share the idea

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 4, 2018, 09:59 AM

    “I made it real clear… To the Big Z. To Ikora. Banshee. Amanda. My pal Jimmy down at the ramen spot …that if anyone ever finds that Deep Stone Crypt thingy—

    I stop counting at six, no higher. Ya hear me? No. Higher.

    Think there's just something about the number 7 that gives me the heebie-jeebies—unlucky, overrated, I don't know, just a number with bad mojo in my book. So, if you've got a 7 in tow, or above, someone's changed the game. Someone's not playing nice.

    Might wanna do something about that.”

    - excerpt from The Man They Call Cayde lorebook, ‘All-In’

    Take it as you will, but Cayde-6 seems to have wanted 6 to be his finale. Another interpretation is that Cayde-6 stopped counting Exo reboots at six, but that could be more complicated.

    we all want our EXO to come back

    Cant wait

    I’d love to see improvements over the armor system that include more RPG stuff. I always thought the system we had in D1 was great, where you could influence your melee, super and grenade charge time. We also need more weapon perks !

    Guardians of darkness ... meh. The darkness is the ultimate enemy, let us fight it all the way to the end. BUT, concepts like the Shadows of Yor must be kept around ! And we also need more darkness imbued weapons, such as Thorn and Bad Juju, but maybe create a whole legendary loot pool based on the Darkness corruption ?

    PvPvE is interesting, but the implementation has to be flawless, or it’ll flop for sure.

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 5, 2018, 04:19 AM

    As frustrating as it was in the beginning, I wish we had upgradable weapons and armor that we pump up with perks over time with use. Even better if we could select and replace perks, perhaps with a more significant version of our mod system integrated for good measure. While we’re at it, perhaps exotic mods?

    Let’s hope we don’t get yet another broken game at launch that needs to wait until it’s 3rd $40 expansion to finally be good

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 4, 2018, 08:34 AM

    Bungie is taking the opposite approach from what lead to the Destiny 2 launch fiasco. Only time will tell, but focusing on the hardcore gamers the most will likely mean that we start with a world built more like Forsaken from the get-go.

  • Alextronic LV.11 Let’s play Apex! Dec 4, 2018, 10:50 AM

    That’s what they said after Destiny 1... and look what happened

  • ObliviousRex LV.36 Mod Dec 4, 2018, 11:15 AM

    They responded to a degree to what people said they wanted, and they did attempt to focus on appeasement of casual gamers, just a lot of the changes backfired and they now well know their mistakes. They were set in their patterns for the two “season pass” DLCs, as expected during their announcements and discussions with the community at large. Their goals now are to have steady streams of content with larger boosts during their corresponding season changes, and that’s likely going to continue in some form.

    If you expect D3 to follow the D2 pattern, then you’re expecting the series to die upon the release of the next game. That’s just how it is. Destiny could not possibly survive another release that is not jam packed with stellar content. They knew that Forsaken had to be great to keep the franchise alive... and they know that it has to consistently be amazing in the future if Destiny wants to keep people coming back. That’s Bungie’s only real option.
