Description

Beyond Light maintains the basic gameplay of Destiny 2; the player, as a Guardian using a power called Light that gives them superhuman abilities and the ability to be regenerated, fight in a mix of first-person and third-person shooter gameplay in both player versus environment and player versus player activities in a massively multiplayer online game world. Cooperative activities include various bounties, story-related missions, strikes, raids, open-world public events, special seasonal events, while competitive matches include matches with other Guardians in the Crucible or a team versus team mode in the Gambit arena. Players are rewarded with both new weapons and armor as well as various materials that are used as a form of in-game currency to gain or upgrade other equipment. Players can have up to three active characters, one from each of the game’s main classes: Titan, Hunter, and Warlock, each that has several subclasses based on the type of elemental damage they select prior to missions. Players seek to improve their character’s overall Power level—a rough average measuring the quality of weapons and gear they have collected—that allows them to take on more challenging activities in the game.

Prior to Beyond Light, there were three main elemental powers: Arc, Solar, and Void, which are rooted in Light; Beyond Light introduces a fourth elemental power called Stasis, which creates ice and cold-based damage, rooted in Darkness, and has a fully customizable skill options compared to the existing subclasses. Each class gets a new subclass for Stasis abilities: the Warlock’s Shadebinder has them using an icy staff that shoots projectiles and unleashes an explosion to freeze and shatter enemies through their “Winter’s Wrath” super, the Hunter’s Revenant utilizes dual ice kamas that they can throw and create icy storms to trap and freeze enemies through their super “Silence and Squall”, while the Titan’s Behemoth uses frozen gauntlets to allow for melee destruction and unleash icy shockwaves on the ground that freezes enemies through their super “Glacial Quake”. Game director Luke Smith said that these new customization options for the Stasis subclasses are an “experiment…to see how this goes” and that they may later add these options to the existing Arc, Solar, and Void subclasses.

Reviews

 

Destiny 2 breaks new ground with Beyond Light, while other parts remain frozen in time.

 

Beyond Light is a fun campaign on a beautiful and expansive new world, but Destiny 2 is still some way from being the best version of itself.

 

The expansion is fantastic, especially come raid day. The vaulting of content, not so fantastic.
