The game will also feature character creation where users can create their own character at the beginning of the game. It will also include side objectives in missions, multiple paths, and multiple endings to the game. It will be interesting to see what ‘Perseus’ is planning after missing for 13 long years.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light

This was probably one of the most anticipated announcements at the event. Beyond Light is the next chapter for the game. Take a look at the trailer below.

The DLC’s description reads “Power takes a new form and three new subclasses emerge: Shadebinders, Revenants, and Behemoths. Guardians will wield Stasis as they begin a perilous journey. A journey to a new destination in search of a dark empire and secrets frozen in time. Secrets that will reveal a power beyond understanding – beyond Light.

The DLC definitely shows a lot of promise, and the addition of 3 new subclasses will definitely make you want to rethink your strategy. Beyond Light will be available on November 10, 2020.

The gameplay reveals that Dr. Nefarious has a weapon called the ‘Dimensionator’, that allows one to travel to other dimensions. But when Ratchet attempts to destroy the weapon, all hell breaks loose. The duo fights their way to Nefarious but is separated as they fall into different dimensions. And there Clank meets the female Lombax.

Insomniac developers mentioned that the game will have no load screens at all. This is possible thanks to their lightning-fast SSD. This also enables them to shift the dimensions in the game almost instantly.
