Surely you watched the Destiny 2 teaser exploring the plateoid Nessus earlier, but there may have been a few things which slipped past your special eyes. Luckily, we’re here to help in that regard.
In the Destiny 2 teaser for Nessus, viewers were able to see mission names and public events flashing by in the video which lasted a total of 51 seconds.
Luckily, one of our resident Destiny experts, Arekkz, has a keen eye and breaks down some of the open world exploration and activities mentioned in the IGN video. The site promised more will be revealed in full on July 24, so expect an extended look at Nessus along with information on Patrol, Adventures and the like.
One of the Adventures seen in the video today was Deep Conversation. Unlike Patrol missions, Adventures can only be started by the party leader and will typically last around the 10-15 minute mark. One of the rewards shown in the pop up for Deep Conversation was a node which players will need to use in order to unlock perks for their class.
Another Adventure shown was Unbreakable, along with a Public Event and two Patrol missions.
In the video from Arekkz below, along with information on what may have flown past you, he also provides a quick glimpse at a Lost Sector. These are similar to dungeons, as you can see in the video around the 5:45 mark the icon on the cliff wall notes a Lost Sector entrance is nearby. But, Lost Sectors are also shown on the game map because at the 7:22 mark, you see five located on Nessus.
When Bungie revealed Destiny 2 in May, Nessus was announced as one of the worlds players will explore in-game. The other two new worlds are the moons Io and Titan.
This is where the Endless Vale map, one of the Crucible PvP maps beta players can experience, is located.
On Nessus, players will find the Vex has fully consumed the area, and players will visit the unstable planetoid during the Destiny 2 beta which kicks off today for those who pre-ordered on PlayStation 4. Pre-order customers on Xbox One can jump in tomorrow, July 19. The beta will open up to everyone else on July 21, and it will end on July 23.
Along with the Crucible maps, just to reiterate, beta players will be able to try out the story mission Homecoming, three of the six Subclasses, the Inverted Spire Strike, and a quick hour spent on The Farm.
Destiny 2 will release on September 6, 2017 on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version of Destiny 2 will release on October 24, 2017.
