Your Light will be tested, Guardian… and you will be stronger for it.
If you’re familiar with Destiny’s Rise of Iron expansion then the next map will bring back fond memories of Saladin, Wolves, and the Iron Banner. Called ‘Vostok’, this location will have you fighting off against your fellow guardians from competing towers, a network of caverns in the middle, and a few buildings on the edges. It’s good to see you again, Mr. Gondola shack! To give you a full breakdown of this new spot we chatted with Environment Artist Jeff Horal over at Bungie and learned all about converting this iconic spot to a PVP map.
Getting notes directly from the developer is always a pleasure, but we know that you would much rather see the map in action! Luckily we had one of the top players at Bungie (who seems to have a special place in his heart for Titans) play and absolutely dominate on the Vostok map. This time he did change it up a touch, showing off the power of the Striker Titan subclass as well as the new Sentinel Titan you’ll get a chance to play in the beta.
Finally we have some more Warlock gameplay showcasing the new Dawnblade subclass in action. Before you check out the Warlock in all his glory, Bungie did ask that I make one detail about Power ammunition clear: Power ammo will not spawn at the beginning of the match like it does in our gameplay. This was an adjustment made in our particular build while visiting the studio and is not indicative of final gameplay. Sorry, heavy weapon enthusiasts! I hope you enjoy your time playing on it during the Destiny 2 beta starting on July 18th.
