Trials of Osiris will be offering fresh weapons and armour this week, with plenty of other rewards available in Destiny’s other activities. The Festival of the Lost will be ongoing over the rest of October and should wrap up around a week before the release of Beyond Light. The expansion is going to change a great deal in the game, including how new players will experience the game.
Bungie has been spilling the beans about the Beyond Light update gradually and now we know how new Guardians will kick off their adventures.
“Currently, players are given a single mission to become acquainted with some basic gameplay, and then let loose in the Tower without much direction on where to go or what to do next,” Bungie confirms in a blog post.
“This led to some confusion, as many players didn’t exactly know where to start. Who’s that robot that’s meticulously cleaning an Auto Rifle?
“What do I do with these engrams? And what’s a Zavala? The team has been working to restructure the onramp for Destiny 2, and today we’ll be giving a small glimpse into the New Light experience.
“Starting November 10, players will start in the same way that most all of us have. A Ghost will be on the hunt for their Guardian, they’ll stumble upon you, and they’ll revive you for the first time. What’s different now is that you won’t immediately find a ship. Rather, you’ll stumble into another Guardian in the wild.
“As a new player, you’ll spend your first few missions getting acquainted with the state of the world in Destiny 2.
“You’ll have opportunity to take a few weapons out for a spin, find engrams to try different armor and see our progression systems, and have some time to learn how to navigate the user interface to understand quests, bounties, collections, and more.
“All of this will happen before you set foot in the Tower, and our hope is that this refreshed New Light experience will give a much warmer welcome to Guardians as they play Destiny 2 for the first time.”
Back to this week, and Guardians are just hours away from stringing together wins to earn the best loot and a ticket to The Lighthouse. Rewards will not be known until Destiny 2 fans find out for themselves as Bungie never shares a list beforehand.
It should also be known that the best loot, the Flawless stuff – will take longer to confirm, but we’ll be sure to update this story as soon as we have the latest information.
