As the Last City falls before Dominus Ghaul and his Red Legion army, players get an opening that plays like the original game, before all the familiar elements are stripped away in the wake of Ghaul's conquest of Earth. There's no denying it makes you want more.
No time has been provided for the Agent of the Nine's return, but we imagine it's safe to assume the vendor will stick to the usual times we've seen him come and go as during his time with Destiny 1.
One of the most shared elements of the original Destiny had to be the emote system, which took off over time and eventually added in actions and dances that aped popular culture, from "Thriller" to "Hotline Bling". Once players finish everything there is to do in Destiny 2, what then?
In Destiny 2, there are more options than before for earning and applying color to your character, your ship, your weapons, even individual pieces of armor.
