The expansion awaited by all guardians is already among us. We tell you everything in this review!
destiny 2 it’s a game free to playbut its system of paid expansions has always given rise to many controversies. Bungie gave us wonderful campaigns like The Witch Queen and others a little more disappointing, such as beyond the light in which they removed many of the planets that players have explored for years. And along with them, those parts of the overall story of destiny 2 .
But with the release from Destiny 2: Eclipse, there was much hope in an expansion that promised a new world to explore and a new power for our Guardians to discover.
In Destiny 2: Lightfall (Eclipse in Spanish)He Witness has finally arrived in search of the Veil, a device connected to the Traveler, in which there is a link on the planet Neptune. He Witness with his disciple, the Emperor Callus. He will be in charge of the invasion of the Neptunian city Neomuna to get the great hidden power, which we are going to protect together with the Cloud Striders or Surcanuvesthe technologically enhanced protectors of Neomuna.
The new warriors that will help us defend the city Neomuna are Rohan and Nimbusthe first non-binary character in the game and the last and youngest clouds strider in training, under Rohan’s orders. The difference of a clouds strider and the Guardians, in a nutshell, is that the clouds Striders are cybernetically enhanced humans tasked with protecting Neomuna. Essentially, with the power of advanced technology, clouds Striders are the next stage of human evolution and Nimbus is the latest in the long line of clouds Striders that preceded it.
This campaign will feature a new Legendary mode for Guardians looking for a more difficult challenge. As a reward you will get a complete set of powerful armor.
Destiny 2’s new location
Neomuna, a hidden city on Neptune is the new location that this expansion brings. It is a city with a style very similar to Cyberpunk, where purple, blue and orange tones predominate. In the city, the buildings and their very tall skyscrapers rule, clearly encouraging the use of new subclass “The Binding”. But as same as cyberpunkthe city feels somewhat empty, many buildings and few enemies.
The Binding, the new subclass, is unlocked by simply playing the eclipse story and it presents itself as a power of darkness, but not as you are thinking, but trying to question our perspective of good and evil.
Tie It will mainly consist of a grappling hook, which will allow players to move around the environment using the darkness to their advantage. ANDThis subclass will be present in each of the three main classes (Titan, Sorcerer and Hunter) so, according to our choice, it will make a presence in a different way.
The Titans will use the tether to finish off rivals with daring attacks. These will be able to maim enemies en masse long before removing them from the map.
His melee ability will be “Crazed Blade”: With her, by pressing a button we will quickly move forward maiming the victims and reducing the damage they inflict on us.
While his Super will be “Sharp Fury”: With this, the berserker titan will travel the battlefield wielding two blades with which he will forcefully damage his rivals in his attacks.
The Streakweaver Sorcerers they will be the owners and lords of tetherstanding out both in invocation and in the use of the thread beasts.
His melee ability will be “Arcane Needle”: This is a deadly projectile that tracks targets, deals damage and frays them on impact, being able to chain up to three attacks like these.
While his Super will be “Storm of Needles”: Using it, the sorcerer conjures binding matter that it shapes into powerful spikes that it hurls forward. As if this were not enough, after attaching to enemies, they explode and thread again to transform into an army of beasts that finish off their opponents.
tightrope walker hunters
Finallythe Tightrope Hunters will be those who get the most out of the new hook. Although all classes have it, hunters will take movement and speed to the next level, attacking enemies from the air or using new weapons that will shoot ropes.
His melee ability will be “Threaded Spike”: With it, the hunter fires a rope dart that bounces between enemies dealing damage and then returns to him, granting him energy for each enemy hit.
While his Super will be “Silk Hit”: thanks to it, the hunter will use the hook to move freely through the world while throwing the rope dart to hit enemies, with a heavy attack and a light attack.
Added to all of the above, we will get new weapons and armor with the same aesthetics as Neomuna with a lot of neons and colors. We will also have to face new enemies. First, we’re going to have the Legion of Shadows, who are the followers of Callus who were given a newfound power by the Witness in the form of a mysterious and powerful pyramidal technology, and the Tormentors, enigmatic and fateful executioners, strengthened by the Witness and Pyramid technology to create sudden bursts of Adept moves at immense speed. They fear nothing and are highly resistant to weapons, except in a few critical areas.
The entire campaign revolves around saving the Veil, but it is not explained what the Veil is or what it has to do with the Traveler. Gives a bit of information, but nothing concrete. After playing around seven hours the campaign ends strangely with more questions than answers. But surely those questions will be answered throughout the season, along with more information about the Witness.
Beyond the campaign Bungie I listen to the players because there are improvements in the quality and agility of the game that really make a difference. The gear combination system is exceptionally good, finally allowing us to store specific gear, mod, and subclass combinations that can be changed in the blink of an eye.
The gear system will allow players to save up to ten unique gear (with gear slots earned through Guardian Ranks). With this, players will be able to take items and weapons from their storage without having to visit it or use the app, although it will only be possible if you have the necessary space in your inventory. Simply choosing the desired gear will instantly change, including mods, subclass skins, etc.
The ranges of Guardian They are a new way to track your career and triumphs in Destiny. The new guardians will be included quickly, and there will also be new challenges for the veterans. The idea is that you earn ranks as you complete missions in the game. There will be 11 ranks to progress through and the first seven will be mostly attributed to new players and the first tasks they complete. The following ranks will be tied to each season and will revolve around increasingly demanding activities and tasks.
The highest rank, 11, will be reserved for those who enjoy Grandmaster, Nightfalls, Raids, Trials of Osiris and other important missions of the game. These last ranks will be reset when a new season arrives, but they will be recorded in the journey of the guardians. A praise system has also been introduced, which is registered in our profiles. Anyone can see how the community values you.
As usual with this new expansion, Destiny 2 will have a new RAID or raid, titled Nightmare Root, and will arrive on March 10. “A disturbing presence has been detected from an unknown place and time. The Guardians must confront this ancient threat that grows at our gates.”. With the launch of the raid, Bungie’s competition to crown the first squad in the world to complete it will also kick off. Each member of the winning squad will earn a unique World’s First belt, as well as the recognition of World’s First title.
Finally, we can say that, in terms of the feel of the game, the mechanical equipment and improvements in the quality of life, the expansion took a step forward in Destiny 2. But as far as the story is concerned, it’s a step backwards compared to the campaign of the Witch Queen.
