Destiny 2 will feature four brand new locations for Guardians to explore in their quest to become more powerful and recover what has been lost. Of course Earth will be a big part of the game, and this time around Guardians will be in the European Dead Zone instead of Old Russia. The other worlds are Titan, Nessus, and IO.
- European Dead Zone – The largest destination yet featuring a lush forest, abandoned town, a cave system below the surface, and a Red Legion military base to explore and contest.
- Titan – One of Saturn’s Moons where Commander Zavala is regrouping at the hands of Ghaul. There is no land on Titan. Instead, players explore a series of Golden Age platforms surrounded by a rolling ocean.
- Nessus – a strange and unstable planetoid that has been fully consumed by the Vex where players will find Cayde-6 is caught up in his own adventures in a stunning landscape of sheer walls, lush canyons, and creepy Vex caverns.
- Io – A moon of Jupiter, where Ikora Rey has gone in search of answers. Io is the last known site the Traveler visited during the Golden Age, it’s now occupied by our enemies.
This time around, you’ll be able to go anywhere with an all new in game map/director that will allow players to pick a landing zone and seamlessly jump into any activity. No more needing to go to orbit.
These new worlds will feature campaign missions and patrols with new content Adventures, Lost Sectors, and Public Events:
- Adventures – Shorter missions with self-contained stories for players to learn more about the Destiny 2 universe and the characters that live there.
- Lost Sectors – Scattered, enemy dungeon layers throughout the world you can discover with unique boss enemies guarding treasure to earn.
- Public Events – Unique, optional, dynamic combat activities that players can join on the fly as they roam around the world solo or with up to nine other players.
