When you load Destiny 2 up after a little while without playing it you expect to be greeted with a message or two for events that have occurred, ones that are currently happening, and special missions that might be floating about. Bungie is now planning to push this feature further for Guardians, making them aware of everything that’s going on in the Destiny universe when they log in.
Recently dmg04, a Bungie Community Manager, told Guardians that they should expect to see more of these messages as time goes on. While they might not seem like much they will inform Guardians of what’s going on this week in Destiny 2. For regulars this is pretty much irrelevant, but for those of us who don’t get to log in at least once a day it’s a useful tool for knowing where to put our time in this session.
The example dmg04 Tweeted told Guardians that the Iron Banner would be starting next week, that the corruption level in The Dreaming City was at its highest, and that the Season of the Drifter would begin soon, the 5th of March.
With more and more activities being added to the weekly roster it can be hard to keep track of what there is to do each week in order to maximise loot earning potential. It’s also difficult to keep track of what content is newest, therefore meaning that it will have the highest level of loot that a Guardian probably hasn’t obtained.
Moreover Bungie tend to communicate outside of the game with Guardians regarding upcoming content, live events, and missions. This makes it super difficult for a Guardian who doesn’t follow the game’s new closely to keep track of what’s going on.
With Thunderlord for example, it would have been pretty hard for a Guardian who didn’t see the weapon on social media to actually acquire it. The quest spanned three weeks and was a little out there at times, with nothing that made it clear that it was Thunderlord being offered as a reward.
Some Guardians have requested that certain key patch notes be included in these message boards in the future. It’s not been confirmed either way if this would be possible, but I could definitely see the benefits of loading up Destiny 2 on a Thursday and reading through the patch notes before I play.
Let us know what you think about the new message board in the comments.
