Destiny 2 launch is slowly but surely approaching and Bungie keeps releasing tiny bits of information to fuel players’ interest.
Earlier today, Bungie provided Destiny 2 fans with some insights into The Farm. The developer also announced some changes regarding the NPCs. However, the biggest revelation was related to the number of players who can join The Farm.
An IGN First video confirms that The Farm in Destiny 2 will support up to 26 players. That’s a substantial uptick given the fact that the social spaces in Destiny 1 were capable of supporting up to 16 players.
Although the video does not provide a full coverage of how The Farm social space would look like, fans are excited about the increased number of players running around.
The PC version will enable players to send messages to each other. That functionality comes in handy when they are looking for a fireteam. For the time being, the Xbox One and PS4 versions do not support text chat.
Bungie representatives are reluctant to reveal if the social space will reserve slots for fireteam members like Destiny 1 does with patrols.
Fans have unanimously agreed that Bungie is not likely to reveal in-depth details prior to Destiny 2 release in September. Still, the fact that the players’ count has been significantly increased serves as an indication that the developer is working hard towards providing users with features unavailable in Destiny 1.
In addition, Bungie officials have confirmed that Destiny 2 will not suffer from a lack of content. To be able to release new content on a regular basis, Activision will count on additional AAA developers including Vicarious Visions and High Moon.
Developers also plan on breathing new life into Destiny 2 by creating an “expanded universe for the sequel and driving a deeper narrative”. Their aim is to make the game less intimidating for newbies to join and more engaging to Destiny veterans.
Destiny 2 will be launched across PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th. Its PC launch falls on October 24th.
