In a post on Destiny’s official website, Bungie has let loose some details about what progress will carry over from the first game’s Destiny Characters to its sequel, due out in 2017.
According to the post:
“We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.”
What won’t carry over is the gear, light levels, and powers – most likely because the sequel will be quite a bit different than its forebear. Unlike traditional MMOs, Destiny’s approach to having a sequel should be unique. Imagine if you would have been able to carry over a character from EverQuest 1 to 2?
There’s still one more major update coming for Destiny before the launch of Destiny 2, and we expect more info on that in the near future.
