Guardians gather in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 is only a few months away and I've already gotten my hands on the game, taking part in a single player mission, a strike and a new competitive mode at a special event hosted by Bungie out of the Jet Center Los Angeles. It was a packed day, so I came away with plenty of fresh details about the new game.

If I had to offer up a "grand takeaway" from my experience with Destiny 2 thus far, it would be that it's the most Destiny that Destiny has ever been. That may sound silly in black and white but, for people who have been playing the game for the past three years, I think you know what I mean.

The team at Bungie has done a lot of growing and learning over the course of the original Destiny, and our proof of that is the fact that each major expansion improved the game in rather notable ways. From more impressive story-telling to quality of life adjustments and a better understanding of what will keep players coming back for more, the original Destiny has only gotten better and better.

So what I mean by my earlier statement is that Destiny 2 has benefited in a big way from all of those lessons. There haven't been any grand, sweeping changes revealed so much as a major iteration on many things that already worked well. They just work even better now. So if what you're looking for is even more Destiny, but with a whole bag of new tricks and even more content to plow through, it's looking like you'll be in for a treat when the game arrives on Sept. 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

As for what I took away from my time with the game, I've honed in on the five biggest things that stuck in my mind following the Destiny 2 event. Give them a gander and be sure to give us your thoughts or ask your questions in the comments below.
