The developer of Halo Bungie has lifted the cover on Destiny 2, revealing the first details about its follow-up to the 2014 massively multiplayer online first-person shooter. Initially there was a talk about June 2017 as the month of the launch of Destiny 2 beta, Bungie now shows a generic "Summer" as the opening period of the test phase. Destiny 2 will better shepherd new players with Guided Games using clans, allowing lower level players to hop in with friends, and improve overall matchmaking. Weapons will now be classified as either power weapons, energy weapons, and kinetic weapons.

However, that's not all as we also found out how to run "Destiny 2" on different platforms. The trailer breaks down to about half cinematics and half first-person gameplay, showing off plenty of action in the process. After all, it represents a lot of things - the potential arrival of a huge console community to PC, for one.

As announced at the end of the livestream, Destiny 2 will also be exclusive to Blizzard's Battle.net platform, meaning it won't be available to buy through Steam or other marketplaces.

Outside of our in-person conversations today with Bungie, a FAQ on Blizzard.com is likewise non-committal about a release date.

Luke Smith, the gameplay streams host, told PC Gamer that the September 8 release date only applies to the console version - the PC version release date for Destiny 2 has yet to be set.

There are brand new abilities coming to Destiny 2 that look like they came straight out of comic books.

While these PC settings are thrilling players, Bungie may not be on track to release the PC version alongside the PS4 and Xbox One copies in September. In the event, we get our first look at gameplay footage for the game.
