About the game:

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion.  He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

In Destiny 2, every player creates their own character called a Guardian, humanity’s chosen protectors.  Players can choose from playing the cinematic, story campaign, venturing into the expansive destinations to join in cooperative modes including Strike missions. You can also explore and complete Quests, Adventures and Patrols, or uncover Lost Sectors and Treasure Chests, while rallying with other Guardians to dominate Public and Heroic Events, Flash Points, and more.  For competitive players, Destiny 2 offers intense 4v4 multiplayer matches in ‘The Crucible’.  An all-new, community-oriented feature implemented in Destiny 2 is the ‘Guided Games system’ to help players find like-minded groups to experience some of Destiny 2’s most challenging activities.  Whether you like to play alone or with a large group, Destiny 2 is a versatile game that everyone who gets their hands on it really enjoys.
