Destiny 2's microtransactions are gross, and totally par for the course

Unlike Destiny 1, he won't appear in a social area like The Farm where a player is safe from danger - instead, he'll appear somewhere in one of the four main zones in the game: Titan, Io, Nessus or the European Dead Zone.

Players will also recieve Exotic Quests to complete for powerful Exotic weapons.

From there, though, the plot in the original game was hard to follow. We miss the dunes of Mars, the jungles of Venus and the rocky wastelands of Earth's moon, all of which sat centre stage in the original Destiny.

This keyring is part of Numskull's new range, launching alongside Destiny 2. Finally after deleting the game and reinstalling it I finally got out of the room and to the part where you have to defend from 3 attacks.

Destiny 2 PlayStation exclusive content expiry date - when does PS4 Destiny 2 content come to other platforms? Others see them as a cruel and soulless money grab. But then, I guess they're not playing CS:GO.

Destiny 2 has come under fire from the game's community for its microtransaction system.

Read: Destiny 2: Which Edition to Buy? It was a great system to begin with, and I think this community is pretty unanimously unhappy with the new system, aside from the individual shader placement on gear.

Thanks to the Bungie Blog we now know when we can expect the return of our favourite tentacle faced friend, Xur, along with a load of other events to finish out the month of September.

Destiny 2 promises a real narrative. At this rate I'll never get into crucible! Thankfully, that's not the case as moment-to-moment combat and exploration is solid as a rock. This satisfying combat loop of defeating powerful enemies and collecting cool rewards is the reason why so many people (including me) stuck with the original Destiny, despite its flaws. While the 2016 installment fell flat with players, Call of Duty: WWII has received good buzz so far and Hickey expects sales of 22 million copies in fiscal '17.

Read: Destiny 2 Classes: Which Class Should You Choose? Maddeningly, Bungie has refused to do this for Destiny 2. While this seems like an innocuous way to get people to grind, the issue is that they can be earned from Bright Engrams, which, as discussed above, can be purchased for real money like loot boxes. Frustratingly, the PC version of the game, set to release in late October, features an uncapped frame rate. When players found out that the shaders in the game are now treated as consumables, players are accusing the studio of giving in to the trend of corporate greed that has led so many promising developers down the path of anti-consumerism.
