Bungie Finally Addresses Destiny 2's Big Eververse Problem

Bungie Doubles Down on its Plans to Fix What's Wrong with Destiny 2

"We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never meant to be a substitute for end game content and rewards", writes game director Christopher Barrett. New Raid-specific perks and guaranteed item drops from major encounters should help ameliorate that the hard raids simply aren't worth the effort at the moment. Nearly 2 weeks in 2018, Christopher has introduced the community to some of the plans. They also state a desire to implement a "gameplay path" to earn Bright Engrams, which could allow players access to Eververe items without spending any actual money at all.

We are also adding a new Ghost with Raid-specific perks that has a chance to drop from the Leviathan and Eater of Worlds final encounters. What's more, you'll receive both a Crimson Engram and Illuminated Engram upon levelling up during the event.

Some other changes promised by Barrett include the return of six-vs-six multiplayer as a separate mode in The Crucible, the implementation of Destiny: Rise of Iron's strike scoring system into Nightfall, reworked armor and weapon mods, and the return of Raid-specific rewards that will make them "more unique and interesting".

In other "Destiny 2" related news, Bungie announced that the servers will be offline for around four hours next week.

The upcoming Crimson Days event (beginning on February 13th) will see the beginning of these changes.

On Jan. 30, Bungie will be releasing an update that will include the expansion of the Masterwork system for armor.

It also sounds like Bungie is taking some extra development time on the game's second paid expansion - which could indicate a delay - after lukewarm response to December's Curse of Osiris.

Bungie reveals a road map with a massive list of changes to overhaul Destiny 2

The issues with the game's microtransactions will be addressed by letting players earn loot by playing and not buying, which is something the community has been asking for.

Work is underway on a full rework of armor and weapon mods.

Destiny players who were rightfully unhappy with the game's recent holiday event, The Dawning, will be heartened to hear that Bungie plans to scale back the importance of Eververse. These items were only found in Bright Engrams prior.

Faction Rallies return next week, and the first rally of 2018 sees players competing for shaders and auto rifles tied to each of the Tower's three factions. We don't believe just adding more space is a complete solution and are actively working on other changes to reduce load on your vault space.

Exotic weapons and armor are receiving a comprehensive design pass to ensure they stand out from the rest of the gear and offer new, exciting, powerful ways to play.

Bungie will continue iterating on these to make them unique, exciting experiences that you all look forward to.

Players will also finally be able to equip multiple emotes, as well.
