Bungie says it's scaling back Eververse in Destiny 2 content roadmap

Bungie Doubles Down on its Plans to Fix What's Wrong with Destiny 2

In the post, Destiny 2's upcoming content schedule was broken down into four updates: January 30, February, Spring 2018, and Fall 2018.

While Destiny 2 players could only receive high-end Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships randomly through Eververse's Bright Engrams, earned by leveling up or buying with real-world money, Bungie wrote in the post that the platform "was never meant to be a substitute for end game content and rewards".

However, the developer has made more immediate adjustments to Destiny 2 which are worth highlighting on their own, and these pertain to Destiny 2 loot box driven economy.

Over the course of 2018, Bungie plans to release updates and new content for all players, Barrett said, not just those who pay for expansions. Barrett said that the in-game store, which primarily sells cosmetic items, will be changing in upcoming seasons of Destiny 2.

Bungie detailed their roadmap for the next few months for Destiny 2, not necessarily in content, but in changes that the community has been demanding to make, and one of the biggest changes is a focus on making sure that Eververse is not the focus.

Moreover, Bungie promised to "provide a gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams)", adding that it's still "investigating changes to XP earn rates".

We are expanding the Masterwork system to include armor.

You can reroll the armor stat type on Masterwork Armor, and similar to Masterwork weapons, you can upgrade a piece of armor to Masterwork by spending Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards. Many vocal critics in the community think the company expects players to spend most of their time in the game attempting to maximize the amount of Eververse items they can get, instead of actually playing the game's activities and having fun.

This update will also make Raid rewards "more unique and interesting".

We are also adding a new Ghost with Raid-specific perks that has a chance to drop from the Leviathan and Eater of Worlds final encounters.

"You will finally be able to see the other members of your fireteam on the destination map". Bungie will likely have additional details as the next Destiny 2 live event gets closer. Those include new ranking features in Crucible, the game's competitive multiplayer mode, private matches and a 6-versus-6 playlist (an increase from the current 4v4 limit in competitive games).

There's lots more to the update, so whether you're a casual raider or you've gone into a full Reddit rant about a hand cannon, it's worth reading the post in full.
