Latest news from Bungie regarding Destiny 2 confirms players’ worst nightmare regarding item carryover.
Bungie has just revealed a small snippet of Destiny 2 information in their latest update. This update targets what lies ahead for Destiny 1 and how players can prepare for the inevitable arrival of Destiny 2.
The post goes on to mention what will be happening over the next few weeks as Destiny’s first chapter comes to a close. However, for those wanting to know what will happen in Destiny 2, Bungie has some information that will disappoint some players.
Bungie states, “Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.”
The main focus of this statement is that power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. For the layman, that means your Guardian’s skills and Light Level won’t be carried across, nor will their weapons, ships, armor, Emblems, and other items. Also being left behind on the Destiny 1 servers are all of the Eververse items players paid real money to use.
This will no doubt come as a crushing blow to many players, though it’s at least a piece of solid information they can swallow and deal with over time. There are a lot of memories attached to all of the unique items they’ve collected over the course of three years, so it’ll be hard to say goodbye, especially to the likes of the Gjallarhorn.
However, players can rest assured, because their Guardians will be transferring to the new game, so long as they’ve reached Light Level 20 and have completed the mission, The Black Garden.
Shifting to more exciting news, the post mentions that a new event is planned called, “Age of Triumph.” Though no details have been revealed yet, it appears as though this event will task the players with revisiting and conquering old content.
Although many of these updates come as a disappointment, the fact that Bungie is acknowledging Destiny’s sequel and mentioning what will and won’t carry across to the new title means that Destiny 2 is reaching a point of completion. You can read the announcement in its entirety over on the official Bungie site. Personally, I just want some concrete answers about whether or not I get to revisit a revamped Vault of Glass. Come at me, Atheon, my old friend.
