The third presentation of Destiny 2: Into the Light broadcast this Tuesday was rich in details on the next additions to the game. After introducing the game mode Assault (Onslaught), THE Hall of Champions and thearsenal BRAVERYas well as the attributes of these weapons, these are two particularly loved exotic missions, but which had been placed in the content chest that we will once again be able to explore.

The second half of this presentation therefore served to introduce the pack of three new cards for theTest expected May 7which in itself is a small event for the players considering the fact that it took seven seasons before having Disjunction (Season of Torment) then five more for Multiplex (Season of the Witch) – both little appreciated -, with between the return of Twilight Cathedral (Loot Season) of destiny first of the name. This news maps were primarily designed to be played in 3v3 competitivealthough the team made sure that they work well with the different game modes. In all cases, the goal was to provide visual variety with three very distinct locations.

To begin with, we have Eventide Labslocated in Europe. This former frozen research outpost, which served as a human colony, now serves as a supply station for a ketch of Vigrisincluding a Servant supplying ether to the ship. Comes next Cirrus Plaza has Neomunadescribed as a place of shopping and entertainment for Exercises of the city with arcades and a bar. It will be immediately readable by fans hardcore of PvP with its central atrium. Finally, Dissonance will take place on the ship of Witness used in the Raid Origin of Nightmaresfrom his little name Essence, which is partly terraformed. It was not easy to design due to the abstract side of this environment, particularly to guide the players, and required a lot of back and forth within the team to achieve this result. Well-known players who are pragmatic and have no conflicts of interest were invited to test these cards and gave constructive feedback. A playlist 3v3 integrating only these three cards will be available at their launch.

A few other elements were also discussed, starting with the fact that in addition to Triumphs unpublished that we have already been able to see, A Title linked to In the light called Brave can be obtainedenough to increase playing time. The activity Pantheon has not been shown, but will consist of a weekly challenge with a succession of confrontations against bosses of Raids with increasing difficulty. We'll know more about it by April 30 and its launch. This will be a good way to glean equipment not obtained so far.

New players will be able to pass the introduction New Light to play directly with their friends… On this point, we understand the idea behind it, but it's difficult to find it convincing. The current experience is already confusing enough and it's difficult to recommend the game to people who have never played it. (what an idea to have removed the campaign from the Red War which was a good starting point), then dumping them with nothing will be even worse. If games like FFXIV oblige to complete theEpic of all the extensions before tackling the latest one (yes, adventure tales (paying fees exist to pass everything), a few hours on such FPS should not be seen as such a big problem. Finally, it is with this update that the ability to change the appearance of our Guardians will finally be given to us, but visibly without novelty in the available choices. An additional username change will also be offered at that time.

You can watch this entire 3rd presentation again below, with the portion covered in this article starting around the 28:57 mark.

With these three lives, Bungie seems to have understood that communicating with the community in this way is the right way to go, as it was back then, rather than just releasing a trailer an hour before the content launches. And this will continue, since we have an appointment on Tuesday April 9 at 6:30 p.m. for a live dedicated this time to The Final Formwho will present the gameplay of the extension. A new Emblem will be offered via the drops Twitch after 15 minutes of viewing, suggesting that the presentation should not be very long in order to let players discover In the light from 7:00 p.m.
