So yesterday at 10am PST we got the full reveal trailer, and man what a hell of a reveal it was. The last city has been stomped by the Cabal and their leader Ghaul (Gary), and we have had to retreat from the city losing pretty much everything in the process. If that isn’t a brilliant way to reset everything without resetting everything I don’t know what is. Bungie found a way to keep all of the lore and story beats intact, but still manage to do away with all of the systems and things that were just way to convoluted. This soft reset manages to keep the essence of what Destiny is. It’s not unlike say any sequel where you are stripped of your powers after becoming all-powerful in the previous entry. So with that being said…

So here’s what we know so far: The Cabal came saw and kicked us out of our home. The remaining Guardians and survivors have fled the city into the wilderness to regroup and prepare to take back our home, and presumably the Traveler. It seems as though we will have to acquire new powers, which will require travel to new places in our solar system (can we please go to Europa already). From the absence of any Ghosts in the reveal we can only assume that we are without them for a period of time. However it has been confirmed that Nolan North will be reprising his role as the Ghost (I miss Dinklebot). The Vanguard has survived the attack, but it looks like they are split up into two camps. Lord Shaxx has survived as well and you can see him in the trailer. There will be new foes from the Cabal. A dual sword wielding monstrosity that we assume is part of the red legion. Some new Cabal Phalanx shield toting guys and what looks to be some kind of dog like creature. Last but not least the Cabal leader Ghaul (I will be calling him Gary till the end of time) who looks to be more metal than space turtle. What is of interesting note is that there is no sign of Eris Morn, The Speaker, The Cyrptarch, Tess Everess or any of the faction leaders so we are unsure of their fates. We also know based on the image of the expansion pass (yes they are doing that again) it looks like one with deal with Osiris and the other with Rasputin.

Story wise that’s what we know so far. Other than that Deej gave us a nice neat little timeline. May 18th will be the gameplay reveal, the beta will be in the summer, there will also be more info during the summer and it launches Friday September 8th which means my family will be missing me that weekend lol. Lastly for you Master Racers out there it will be on PC, PS4 will still have timed exclusives and there is a $250 Collectors Edition that I will probably make Coach Mo do an unboxing video on. So let us know what you think. Will you be jumping back into Destiny, starting fresh, playing the wait and see game or just not interested?
