Players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home.
"A great story. Awesome characters. A menacing villain. A clear mission. A gorgeous, expansive world to explore. And of course, great, innovative gameplay that is fun to play solo or with friends. Destiny 2 has it all," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. "Whether you're one of the millions of fans who are already a part of this community, or you are brand-new to the Destiny world, this game is something all different kinds of fans will enjoy and appreciate. We can't wait to share it with you."
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, “Destiny is designed to bring players together, and we are humbled to be part of the communities who breathe life into our worlds. For us, it’s all about the stories, memories, and friendships that are made when people come together.” He added, “Destiny 2 represents the spirit, passion, and energy of an incredible team of world builders here at Bungie, and its launch is the culmination of years of partnership with Activision to bring this game to millions of players all around the world.”
In Destiny 2, every player creates their own character called a “Guardian,” humanity’s chosen protectors. Players can choose from playing the cinematic, story campaign, venturing into the expansive destinations to join in cooperative modes including Strike missions. They can also explore and complete Quests, Adventures and Patrols, or uncover Lost Sectors and Treasure Chests, while rallying with other Guardians to dominate Public and Heroic Events, Flash Points, and more. For competitive players, Destiny 2 offers intense 4v4 multiplayer matches in ‘The Crucible’. Additionally, the fan-favorite endgame gameplay experience, the 6-player Raid, will go live for players at 10 a.m. PDT on Sept. 13. An all-new, community-oriented feature to be implemented in Destiny 2 rolling out shortly after launch is the ‘Guided Games’ system to help players find like-minded groups to experience some of Destiny 2’s most challenging activities.

Okay so that is a whole lot of information, let me tell you first hand what I love. I got this game for my oldest son, my youngest is 6 and the game is to advance for him. My oldest though loves it. So you start the game off by making your guy, now you don't make him from scratch but you are able to pick some features and the colors. That way he (or she) is personalized by you. Then you start the game by yourself, when you first start you can't play with anyone else. It really is just you, my son liked this though because he was able to mess around and figured out his moves and features. After you reach a certain location you unlock multi player play. He was then able to play with his friends and unlock even more of the game. I myself am really impressed with the graphics, at one point in time I walked in on the couch and though I was watching a tv show with him, it wasn't until he talked into his headset that I realized it was his game!! So a huge thumbs up not only for the graphics, but also for the epic story line as well.
The fun doesn't end here though, if you get the Destiny 2 Collector's Edition you get some pretty awesome gear, but physical gear and digital. I'm a cheapo, but even I think all the awesome stuff that comes in the Collector's Edition is def worth the extra bucks
