There are a lot of incredible video games worth playing right now. But if you’re looking for a game you can really sink your teeth and time into, there’s no other game I can recommend more than “Destiny 2.”
“Destiny 2,” which is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, originally launched in September 2017, but the game has evolved considerably since then. At launch, there wasn’t much to do, activities didn’t offer many rewards, and the rewards you would get were often repetitive since every gun had static perks. It had promise, but it was ultimately pretty boring. Players were furious that the sequel had seemed to take so many steps backward since the original “Destiny.”
Much has changed since those early days. Through six different expansions (now called “seasons”), and dozens of game updates that helped players live out their power fantasies of becoming a superhero in space, “Destiny 2” has grown into a game that doesn’t run out of activities, or surprises. And it’s about to get even better this fall, with the ability to pick up your game on other platforms (so you can start on a PlayStation 4 and continue your character on PC), and the move to make the base game of “Destiny 2” free to everyone.
I’ve poured hundreds of hours into “Destiny 2,” and I still find myself staying up late most nights chasing after the game’s many rewards. If you’ve never played “Destiny,” or you’ve taken a break from the game since it launched, here’s why it’s the perfect time to jump in right now.
