During a May livestream event, Bungie showcased the first ever Destiny 2 gameplay, including an extended look at the story mission, "Homecoming".
Destiny 2 as expected to launch later this year and as the name suggests is the sequel to the hugely popular first game in the series.
Broken up by cutscenes that put a greater focus on characters new and familiar, the second half of the demo takes place on a Red Legion dropship where the player takes on a powerful boss called Brann The Urgent Blade.

For starters, the game will feature an uncapped frame rate, so those with the horsepower will be able to take advantage of their high refresh rate displays. The answer? Via the Destiny website, according to Bungie. Thus far, Bungie has been pretty good about keeping rumors off the Internet; that is, after marketing materials spoiled the initial Destiny 2 announcement.
All PvP modes in the Crucible will now be 4 vs. 4, instead of 6 vs. 6. Plus, they'll have bonuses for all clan members so any individual bonuses gets shared amongst the group.
Meanwhile, it was also revealed that Destiny 2 will not be in PCs until after console comes out. Not only that, but Destiny 2 will be available exclusively via Blizzard's Battlenet, and it will not be coming in other digital stores (like Steam or GOG). From the brief tidbits that were shown, it definitely appears to be a "Destiny 1.5". "We do not have dedicated servers for Destiny 2 on PC". But of course we'll reserve judgement until we've seen the whole game in action - and gotten a chance to play it for a while. We want to get our hands on Destiny 2 as soon as possible like everybody else, so we offered to share our PC platform with our sister companies for this release'.
