If these screenshots are anything to go by, Destiny 2 is shaping up to be one hell of a beautiful-looking game, and I personally can't wait to jump into these digital environs and explore every inch of their interstellar secrets.
Say what you will about Destiny, the game always looks great. Destiny 2 continues this tradition with sci-fi style and planetary pizzazz, and we've collected a massive gallery of sixty-seven screenshots to whet your appetite ahead of E3 2017--and the game's release in September.
Bungie iterates that Destiny 2 isn't just a sequel, but a brand new beginning for the franchise. Now Bungie can tap their true vision for the series and create a game that we should've received back in 2014, a game with a compelling story arc replete with interesting characters, a game that has new worlds like Saturn's moon Titan, Jupiter's moon Io, a strange Vex-controlled world called Nessus, and a region on Earth that isn't Old Russia (this time we can explore the European Dead Zone!).
We know you're here for the screenshots, but we thought it pertinent to pack some info in here too, so here's some tidbits on what you can expect when Destiny 2 drops on PS4 and Xbox One on September 8, 2017 (the PC version has been delayed).
Four New Stunning Worlds to Explore with New Features
Destinations of Destiny 2
⦁ European Dead Zone - The largest destination yet featuring a lush forest, abandoned town, a cave system below the surface, and a Red Legion military base to explore and contest.
⦁ Titan - One of Saturn's Moons where Commander Zavala is regrouping at the hands of Ghaul. There is no land on Titan. Instead, players explore a series of Golden Age platforms surrounded by a rolling ocean.
⦁ Nessus - a strange and unstable planetoid that has been fully consumed by the Vex where players will find Cayde-6 is caught up in his own adventures in a stunning landscape of sheer walls, lush canyons, and creepy Vex caverns.
⦁ Io - A moon of Jupiter, where Ikora Rey has gone in search of answers. Io is the last known site the Traveler visited during the Golden Age, it's now occupied by our enemies.
All New Director
⦁ Your guide throughout Destiny 2 in your search for Adventures, Lost Sectors, new Public Events, and more. Players can pick a landing zone, explore, and seamlessly jump into other activities in game.
⦁ Shorter missions with self-contained stories for players to learn more about the Destiny 2 universe and the characters that live there.
⦁ Scattered, enemy dungeon layers throughout the world you can discover with unique boss enemies guarding treasure to earn.
⦁ Unique, optional, dynamic combat activities that players can join on-the-fly as they roam around the world solo or with up to nine other players.
