In a post outlining the road ahead for Destiny, Bungie addressed some questions players had about the upcoming sequel, known thus far as Destiny 2 which is on track to release this fall. Specifically they announced that characters will carry over, but not their gear or power.
Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.
Noted omissions from there are your gear like weapons and armor and progression. All of what carries over and what doesn’t is an attempt by Bungie to compromise and honor the first game while also providing a clean slate for the sequel’s new systems.
Also in the post, Bungie announced they would be doing an Age of Triumph event at the end of March and would be revealing more about it through a series of livestreams beginning next week.
Thoughts on the news? Is this a good compromise for players attached to their characters? Let us know what you think!
