Bungie Is Working Hard To Keep Locations Relevant
New weapon rolls to grind for.
In their recent This Week At Bungie article, Bungie spoke about how they’re working to keep locations relevant. This is a big topic for the community. Every expansion brings along a new great place to play, but for those who enjoy the older locations, sometimes there can be a lack of content, and no reason to return. Bungie’s working on that.
The Dreaming City and the Moon both got a tonne of content added with Forsaken and Shadowkeep. They were the two best places to play for a good long while, but now it’s all about Europa or Earth. to a degree, there’s no point in going to The Dreaming City or the Moon unless you want to look at them. They’re great locations, but the grind is only really going to push your Power Level on the more recent location, Europa.
Well, now Bungie is adding brand new rolls for weapons and armour that you can earn from the Dungeons on The Dreaming City and the Moon. This will make them worth playing on once again, and hopefully, keep some higher Power Level Guardians around on those locations for newer Guardians to witness being awesome.
The issue is, if everyone is playing in the same place, the other locations may as well be chucked into the Vault. Bungie might as well be releasing multiple locations, and vaulting multiple others since no one cares about them.
Now though, Bungie is taking a big step towards keeping the locations Guardians love in Destiny relevant for a long time. Dungeons are tough activities, and they need some concentration and teamwork in order to be beaten. That’s why Bungie is focussing their efforts on them. They know that Guardians will work together for the best loot, and if they put it in older locations, they’ll see traffic there that wasn’t coming before.
I do think that this might also be a hint that the next season will focus on these areas, but we’ll have to wait and see if that turns out to be true. It would be a nice touch to keep all the relevant content in a couple of places though.
