Bungie has as soon as once more up to date its Future 2 roadmap after the discharge of Warmind, and the foremost updates embrace a testing floor for brand spanking new PvP adjustments, in addition to a brand new seasonal mode.
“Crucible Labs” will act as a method for devoted gamers to supply Bungie suggestions on “experimental PvP content material” within the Crucible earlier than they’re finalized, much 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 recreation immediately, or what platforms Crucible Labs will probably be accessible on weren’t introduced. Crucible Labs will hit on Might 29.
Different adjustments between the discharge of Warmind and the arrival of the massive Fall growth embrace the Solstice of Heroes seasonal occasion, which recreation director Christopher Barrett says will let gamers “have fun their accomplishments and, in fact, earn candy new rewards.” This sounds much like Future’s Age of Triumph, which had gamers earn rewards for issues they’d already carried out and work to finish a ebook of accomplishments to earn new honors.
Followers also can anticipate bounties, tougher variations of the Raid Lairs, and adjustments to Unique armor items in July.
Crucible Labs seems like a good way to solicit extra energetic participant suggestions and reply to adjustments extra shortly. I hope it is profitable sufficient that Bungie finally ends up making use of this new technique throughout the board, with main adjustments to strikes, weapons, and extra getting fielded by gamers earlier than they develop into ultimate.
