If you’ve peered at Bungie’s roadmap for Destiny 2 en route to Forsaken, you’ve probably noticed the part which states “Milestones and Challenges updates”. In its recent weekly update, Bungie outlined exactly what that means, and how the Director will also be changing.
First off, the developer revealed that Challenges would replace the traditional means of tracking Milestones. There will be quests and bounties that specifically provide better gear as well. Finally, you can expect various mysteries to pop up as well. These three tenets will be essential to acquiring Powerful Engrams when the Forsaken DLC drops.
You’ll see the “Milestones Blade” also indicating certain activities like critical missions, new subclass pursuits, the next quest or character progression steps and Legacy milestones from the campaign. The Director will also be updated with The Tangled Shore and Dreaming City locations which require the Forsaken DLC to access.
Though we’ll only know the full potency of these changes when they’re live, it’s good to see Bungie addressing its flawed Milestones system. Will it get players to engage more consistently with the game? Destiny 2: Forsaken is out on September 4th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, so we’ll know then.
