Bungie Reveals What Player Data Will Carry Over to Destiny 2
Bungie has released a new blog sharing details of plans for Destiny 2 and specifically what player data will carry over from the first game over to the second for people who have already been playing the first game.
Bungie has revealed they want Destiny 2 to be a fresh start for players. As a result, character powers, possessions and Eververse items will not be carried over to the game. Per the the development team, here is a breakdown of what will not be carried over for the upcoming sequel.
“Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more.“This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.”
Things that will be carried over to Destiny 2 include character classes, race, genders, and physical looks. Here’s more on that from the blog:
“We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.”
Bungie is going to release details on the final live event for the original Destiny game era on Wednesday, March 8. This age is being labeled as the Age of Triumph. Destiny is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. More details on Destiny 2 will be revealed later on.
