Destiny 2 Eververse Is Making Major Changes, Removing All Pay-to-Earn Features
Destiny 2 is constantly evolving and becoming a better version of itself, especially since Bungie’s split from Activision. The company revealed earlier this year that they hope to reign in a “new era” filled with new changes to the game such as becoming free-to-play, allowing players access to a cross-save feature, a brand new expansion, and much more. Another big change coming to the game pertains to the Eververse store, giving players a chance to share their sense of style even more and quite a lot easier than ever before.
An issue with the current set up of the Eververse store within Destiny 2 is that while players can pick up some cosmetic items for their characters such as weapon ornaments, shaders, and various other smaller items to help give a little more cosmetic freedom to players much of the current system is placed behind paywalls and extremely high prices. It’s also disappointing to find something that looks quite amazing but has some fairly poor stats compared to many other items players can acquire through play. According to a new update, the developers hope to fix this a bit reworking new and current Eververse armor into “Universal Ornaments” allowing them to be applied to new Legendary armor without losing the perks of the players currently equipped gear. This gives them a chance to express themselves through their Guardians without losing any effectiveness in combat.
Bright Dust is quite hard to come by unless players spend real-world money for Bright Engrams and then dismantle everything so they have enough to buy specific items within the Eververse store. Instead of keeping with the current pay-to-earn currency mechanics, the developers are looking to go straight to a play-to-win one, giving Bright Dust out as a reward for completing Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit bounties.
Another interesting change will be that Eververse items no longer dismantle into Bright Dust. Instead, the items will breakdown into Glimmer and Legendary Shards, though until the Fall players will be able to dismantle to their hearts content all of the Eververse gear that they don’t use in order to build up a nice cushion of Bright Dust before the new content hits.
Destiny 2 is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The upcoming expansion called Shadowkeep is set to arrive on September 17th of this year along with the upcoming Eververse changes and will also bring with it a plethora of new goodies for players to enjoy like new dungeons, new and old exotics, finishing moves, and much more.
