With the release of Destiny 2 on PC, Bungie is moving on to improve the endgame. In this week's Destiny 2 blog update, Bungie finally revealed several endgame changes that will be coming to Destiny 2 over the next few months that will hopefully keep players going strong after finishing the main campaign.
While these updates aren't immediate (they'll roll out over the next couple months), the changes aim to help incentivize players to keep playing Destiny 2's endgame. The improvements include better rewards for revisiting certain aspects of the game, along with refinements to exotic weapon drops so there'll be less duplicates.
Here's the full list of changes coming to Destiny 2's endgame over the next couple months:
- New systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits.
- Better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities.
- Better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors.
- Private matches for the competitive community (we are targeting early 2018).
- Crucible tuning like adjusted Supremacy scoring and better spawning rules.
- Better incentives for completing Crucible matches (and penalties for quitting competitive games).
- Continued improvements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, including uniqueness of rewards.
- Changes to make the mod economy more interesting and impactful.
- Ongoing improvements to Exotics, including adjustments to reduce instances of duplication.
- New ways to spend surplus currency and materials (looking at you Legendary Shards).
- An emote interface that allows players to equip Salty, Spicy Ramen, Six Shooter, and Flip Out all at the same time.
Some players have been completing Destiny 2's main story campaign in a matter of days, but unfortunately there are parts of the endgame that need some overhauls. Duplicate Exotic drops in particular is something I've been dealing with a lot after beating Gaul.
Hopefully this will help keep the endgame fresh until Destiny 2's first big DLC expansion.
