Destiny 2: Forsaken: PS4 Review

Destiny 2: Forsaken: PS4 Review

Platform: PS4
Released by Activision

Destiny 2's latest expansion is all about making sure people stick around.

Destiny 2: Forsaken: PS4 ReviewThe growing multiplayer world means there is less and less chance of people sticking around and being loyal to the worlds Bungie created. It's not their fault in fairness; it's a case of there being too many options to be a part of - Star Wars: Battlefront suffered from empty matchmaking, and long waits to join game.

But Bungie's been determined to retool the franchise, and by signalling the end of Cayde-6 was a more mission statement than anything.

Centred around a hunt for the killing of Cayde-6, and adding in new missions, extra gear and loot, a mission statement that signalled the Year 2 of the franchise and an intent to stick around for the long haul.

It's a simple story of revenge, and one which builds on character to make sure that the wonder of the game is restored, and the reason to come back, take part in the festivals and stories is there. With a world that's now addicted to Fortnite, Destiny needed to do something radical and while it could be argued that they didn't quite do that, the fact they've listened to the community marks out why Bungie's serious about Destiny.

It's the personal touch that gives Destiny 2: Forsaken the edge it needs; the chance for you to negotiate your missions to avenge Cayde-6 gives you more of a reason to engage with them once again.

A great use of spaces and locations helps Destiny 2 Forsaken expansion build a sense of purpose and draw a line in the sand for what the franchise will want to be. There is a bit of a grind once again to build your Guardian up but it has to be said, with a story this engaging, it's all worth it.
