Destiny 2 Angers Players After Discovery Of XP Restrictions; Bungie Makes Changes

Hey there wannabe Destiny Guardians Bungie and Activision have a little pre-holiday treat for gamers coming up soon. A Destiny 2 free trial

Destiny 2 is a more attractive proposition than ever, with the release of a free trial of the game being released November 28. Studio director Luke Smith tweeted that he will reveal additional details this week about some of the upcoming changes to the overall game experience. New changes will be announced via Bungie's official channels. In addition, Smith and project lead Mark Noseworthy will answer questions and respond to player concerns that have continued to pile up since the game's console launch in December. Since then, Bungie has admitted that this system was present in the game and given its own statement on the matter.

"Currently, XP will scale up when playing longer or fixed duration activities like Crucible competitive multiplayer matches and the Leviathan Raid, and XP will scale down when playing activities that can be quickly, repeatedly chained, like grinding Public Events", it explained. These engrams contain cosmetic items such as shaders, weapon skins, and emotes. The only way to earn them in the game is to "level up" past level 20, or purchase them with Silver that is bought using real world currency. A lack of end game content and worse, a lack of transparency from developer Bungie, has resulted in a consistent flow of negative buzz on forums and Reddit.




As of Sunday, the system has been removed from Destiny 2 though players were once again up in arms after noticing that the experience needed to earn a bright engram was quietly doubled from 80,000 to 160,000 in the same patch.

The Destiny 2 dev team then went on to say that this system will be deactivated "effective immediately".
