Update Raid rewards to make them more unique and interesting.

Today, game director Christopher Barrett outlined Bungie's plans for Destiny 2 for the full year in a post on the developer's website.

If those adjustments go as far as Destiny 2's players have wanted ever since the game's launch, they should substantially address the perception that with Destiny 2, Bungie has placed more of a premium on generating income through microtransactions than creating the ideal gameplay experience.

The #Game Developer also plans to add more masterwork armor, make changes to mods and more, in possible updates in the future.

With Season 3, more changes will come to "Destiny 2", but the others will begin in the next seasonal event called the Crimson Days. Barrett said that the in-game store, which primarily sells cosmetic items, will be changing in upcoming seasons of Destiny 2.

On Jan. 30, Bungie will be releasing an update that will include the expansion of the Masterwork system for armor.

Exotic Weapon and Armor Balance Pass: Exotic weapons and armor are receiving a comprehensive design pass to ensure they stand out from the rest of the gear and offer new, exciting, powerful ways to play.

To say that there has been some disappointment with the end game for Destiny 2, would be an understatement.

Items now only found in Eververse (Ghosts, Sparrows, Ships) will be awarded in other activities, there will be a new "gameplay path" to Eververse engrams and items, and more ways to directly purchase them.

Barrett also explained the team is "shifting the balance of new content" away from Bright Engrams and more toward activity rewards. "We also have plans for Clan and Community High Scores in the works". The situation was only made worse by a seasonal holiday event, called "The Dawning", last month that introduced a whole trove of new items you could only earn through Eververse, all of it tied to randomized loot boxes.

Work is underway on a full rework of armor and weapon mods. New Raid-specific perks and guaranteed item drops from major encounters should help ameliorate that the hard raids simply aren't worth the effort at the moment. During Crimson Days, leveling up will award both a Bright Engram and a Crimson Engram, each of which is strongly weighted to drop non-duplicate rewards. Interestingly, the PC version of Destiny 2 will also get text chat in the Tower hub at this time.

Fans can but hope that this all adds up to a better, more rewarding Destiny 2. It'd take ages to relay every point in this news article, so we're just going to quickly go over the most important points. You can read them all over at Bungie.net.
