Seasons of Destiny
Note: Concept Art, Not actually Seasonal artwork
Torch has been passed from team who made Destiny 2 to the team that is maintaining (The Live Team)
Live Team's goals:
New reasons to keep playing
New pursuites, rituals, and challenges.
Examples: Iron Banner, Faction Rally's, etc.
Expansion 1 - Winter 2017 aka Osiris DLC
Max level so that old/smaller clans have a chance vs only larger more active clans to dominate. Keeps everything on a more fair level.
Seasons have themes associated with them. They take feedback from the community for adding and adjusting things such as new emotes, rewards, etc.
More predictable time tables (what to expect and when)
Destiny 2 year 1: 4 seasons
Make big changes to the game
Sandbox tuning, new features, more content
Big patches to change the meta, etc.
Meant so you don't feel like you have to play Destiny ALL the time.
Season 2: The Dawning
Season 2: The Dawning will make a return shortly after the launch.
Ice Hockey will be enabled
Other Easter Eggs
You can have snowball fights
Event affects will be throughout the world, not just the social space.
Armor, Weapons, Shaders, and possibly emotes will come
1,500 YEARS worth of time played between all guardians.
Learned how we interacted with the loot system. Will be changes to loot such as letting us direct purchase guns via tokens and legendary shards.
The token economy is not always the best way for everything.
Unlock ornaments via gameplay vs tokens for some events in the future.
Heard community feedback of wanting rewards more meaningful.
One more Iron Banner in Season 1.
For Season 2, there will be an ornaments slot requiring an objective to unlock to show that you completed a limited event objective.
Perks and stats will be updated.
There will be a complimentary energy and kinetic weapon so you can have one of each.
Trials of The Nine
There will be ornaments as well, not shown yet but "They look really cool"
Updated weapons, both visual look and perks
Faction Rally Armor can be earned by just playing and repping your faction.
When: Before end of Season 1
Double XP while playing activities with your Fireteam
Pilot: Clan collaboration required
All the emotes, and other rewards from it will be updated and changed
New Mic Drop emote
Fun Fact: Bungie has a recording studio that they record the emotes.
