Destiny developer Bungie has lots of changes coming to its solar-system-spanning shooter in the game’s second year expansion “The Taken King, and it’s dropping knowledge on players by way of a series of livestreams on the gameplay-streaming site Twitch.
Today’s stream, which you can check out in the video above, gives a look at a major new piece of Destiny content, in which players team up to attack a boss on the giant spaceship called the Dreadnaught, the major new location in "The Taken King.”
It deals a lot with how “strikes,” major replayable missions that Destiny players return to again and again, are evolving in the upcoming expansion, with some dynamic changes taking place each time players run it—which will hopefully make them a less by-the-numbers experience of blasting the same baddies in the same places over and over again.
Another stream, below, took place last week and kicked off a look at Destiny’s year two plans, which will rework a number of major things about how the game plays and how player characters grow over time. There’s also changes to how the weapons system works, and a new voice for gamers’ guiding robot pal, Ghost, who formerly was portrayed by Game of Thrones’ own Peter Dinklage.
Bungie has one more livestream planned, taking place at 11 a.m. on Sept. 2 on the company’s Twitch channel. That one will detail new features as players hang out on the Dreadnaught and get into trouble, sounds like.
