Bungie says it's scaling back Eververse in Destiny 2 content roadmap

Bungie says it's scaling back Eververse in Destiny 2 content roadmap

We are updating Raid rewards to make them more unique and interesting.

Destiny 2's Eververse, a real-money store within the game, has been the centre of much unwanted attention. Christopher Barrett game director shared updates on the official site on upcoming plans of Destiny 2 among which scaling down Eververse is the most noted one.

It looks like the team has responded fully, short of removing Eververse together, and the upcoming Crimson Days event will be the ideal chance to see if they have followed through. That is in light of controversy over the amount of experience gained. Bungie plans to introduce Masterwork Exotics by Fall 2018. There are too many updates to list them all here but we added a few important ones below. Bungie is aiming for a February release, but the scope of the rework could push parts or all of it out to early spring.

First off, Bungie wants to make content availability a lot more clear so that players are always aware of what they have access to and what they don't.

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

Bungie: “Eververse Was Never Intended to be a Substitute for End Game Content” in Destiny 2

Destiny 2's end-game will also get tweaked: "We agree with your feedback on the imbalance between Achievement and Bright Engram rewards, and we will be making adjustments to shift more rewards into specific endgame pursuits instead of generic XP grinding for Bright Engrams", Barrett concluded. The place where you grind for items that are hard to come by.

February will also feature Mods 2.0, "a full rework" of mods to pare down redundant mods, allow for more unique theming, and "greatly increasing their impact on your power". "We also have plans for Clan and Community High Scores in the works". Now, in a new blog post, Bungie has been talking about how the future will look, both short-term and looking further ahead, and while there are some things that look promising, fans fear that it is too little too late.

Game director Christopher Barrett detailed a very specific road map of upcoming features in the blog post, which also highlighted a number of points that touched upon several annoyances that numerous hardcore players had. If you just want the highlights, pull up a chair and stick around for a while. Raid gear will now feature mods with raid-specific perks, and an item will drop from each major raid encounter. Interestingly, the PC version of Destiny 2 will also get text chat in the Tower hub at this time. Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships which were previously only found found only in Bright Engrams will be added to reward pools. You can read them all over at Bungie.net. Every player of Destiny 2 will receive new content in the following categories...

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