Bungie has as soon as once more up to date its Future 2 roadmap after the discharge of Warmind, and the most important updates embody a testing floor for brand spanking new PvP modifications, in addition to a brand new seasonal mode.
“Crucible Labs” will act as a means for devoted gamers to supply Bungie suggestions on “experimental PvP content material” within the Crucible earlier than they’re finalized, just like public take a look at servers in video games like Overwatch. Whether or not they’ll be a separate server or accessible within the sport immediately, or what platforms Crucible Labs shall be accessible on weren’t introduced. Crucible Labs will hit on Might 29.
Different modifications between the discharge of Warmind and the arrival of the massive Fall growth embody the Solstice of Heroes seasonal occasion, which sport director Christopher Barrett says will let gamers “have fun their accomplishments and, in fact, earn candy new rewards.” This sounds just like Future’s Age of Triumph, which had gamers earn rewards for issues they’d already executed and work to finish a guide of accomplishments to earn new honors.
Followers may also count on bounties, more durable variations of the Raid Lairs, and modifications to Unique armor items in July.
Crucible Labs appears like an effective way to solicit extra lively participant suggestions and reply to modifications extra rapidly. I hope it is profitable sufficient that Bungie finally ends up making use of this new technique throughout the board, with main modifications to strikes, weapons, and extra getting fielded by gamers earlier than they turn out to be remaining.
