Destiny 2 developers tease exciting things for Savathun’s Throne World

Recently, Destiny 2 Game Director Joe Blackburn had a chat with PC Gamer to talk about the title’s future. While talking about the Throne World, he gave fans some great snippets on what to expect from it in the Witch Queen expansion. He mentioned that the art team has done an amazing job of creating something his team has envisioned. Along with that, he explained that the world has Southern Gothic vibes and the developers have also taken inspiration from the setting of the hit TV show, True Detective.

“We can give references like True Detective, some Southern gothic influences, and we’re never worried about coming out the other side, with it being something that you’ve seen before.”

Other than that, Blackburn also gave some details on the things fans can see in Savathun’s Throne World. From a crashed pyramid ship to Savathun’s massive cathedral castle, players will have a lot to explore. He even mentioned that players won’t have any confusions about their location in this swampy world, which should help them a lot.

“We have this dark crashed pyramid ship in one corner, and it’s lush swamp water—you’re really getting Kermit on a log vibe over there.”

They have already mentioned how the new weapon crafting system will change the game, and it seems like the Throne World will do the same by providing a fresh experience for players.

“I think it’s gonna be one of our best destinations. We wanted something that feels different than all of our other destinations.”
