On the eve of the release of Destiny 2, here’s a nice little tribute to the original game.
As detailed in our Destiny 2 guide, the Homecoming mission kicks off the single-player campaign in style, nuking The Tower and seeing our Guardian kicked and beaten by new villain Ghaul and his Red Legion.
It’s a great opening piece, and one you’ll have experienced if you took part in the recent Destiny 2 beta on PC or console. But the opening cutscene for Homecoming is actually built around the first mission of vanilla Destiny, released three years ago.

Homecoming's Cutscene is a callback to Vanilla Destiny's very first mission, I don't think I've ever seen anyone make the comparison, here! pic.twitter.com/KAXjrFrHvy
