Developer Bungie confirms that previous characters from the original Destiny game cannot be transferred in Destiny 2. It means that the previous hours spent grinding for experience and levels would not matter in its sequel.
According to TechnoBuffalo, the only thing that the developers would allow to be transferred to the next game would be the aesthetic chosen after finishing the Black Garden Mission. Bungie specifically said on their website that “power, possessions and Eververse-related items and currency” cannot go over the other game.
However, players can still transfer the Guardian aesthetic they have chosen once they have reached level 20 in the original Destiny. Bungie plans on maintaining the class, gender, race, face, hair, and marking selections for the Guardian.
Aside from the Guardian aesthetic, players can still carry over the accomplishments achieved in the first Destiny. Bungie would give veteran accounts with honors that would reflect the said achievements into the next game.
Bungie believes that starting from level one would be the best way to go in order to maximize the new features of the sequel. It would allow them to introduce the advancements and improvements and leave the remnants of past behind.
It would require everyone to begin with a clean slate. No player would have an unfair advantage towards another since everyone starts as fresh.
Destiny 2 Release Date, Features & More
Publisher Activision would release the full sequel of Destiny in Fall 2017. Speculated dates include September, October, or November but the game has a higher chance of arriving in September.
In comparison with the original Destiny, its sequel would feature planets that would feel more like a complete destination. Each individual planet would contain specific areas that would make players explore them more.
Planets would contain new outposts and towns, as well as different Patrol Missions directly connected to the Main Mission. It would make the game show more of a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) genre.
Destiny 2 On PC
Bungie first made the original Destiny game only for the consoles but its sequel might also come to the PC. If developers decide to release it on the PC, players can expect a lot of tweaks since the PC can offer more controls than consoles. According to Game-Debate, the possible minimum specs of the game might include:
