In Destiny 2, “humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee.” The reveal trailer of Destiny 2 shows two Vanguard, Guardian leader, inciting the inhabitants of the last cities that remained a passionate (and sometimes sarcastic) to the arms call.
In Destiny 2 players will respond to this call, embarking on an exciting story, full of new destinations to explore throughout our solar system and a large number of activities to discover. In Destiny 2 there is something for almost every type of player, including a gameplay in single player, co-op and competitive players immersed in a vast and exciting evolving universe.
