Destiny 2 ‘Warmind’ Expansion Released Amid Accusations Of False Advertising
Announced last month, the latest expansion for Destiny 2, titled ‘Warmind,’ is now available, finally allowing Bungie’s player base to delve into some of the mystery that is Hunter Ana Bray. That said, while the new single-player campaign is in itself enjoyable, many players have begun to accuse Bungie of false advertising in regards to the “new” content that was promised post-campaign.
Here are some of the hard-hitting thoughts from a Resetera user:
The only new and original Strike is exclusive to PlayStation. These are advertised as new and separate content, same as they are in the original game. However in the new DLC Warmind two of them are literally just the last two campaign levels, with the third and only original content one being exclusive to PlayStation. As if it was already bad enough when one of the four campaign levels is just set in an old area of Earth, then the last two are also doubling as Strikes. They did this in Curse of Osiris as well but at least then they changed them up a bit, gave them different dialogue and had the excuse that it was a second run of the simulation. Even then they didn’t literally use the final boss of the campaign as a Strike. I can’t stress enough that this is advertised as separate content to the campaign, just as it is in the base Destiny 2 game. In addition this is in a $20 expansion.”
Other players have had similar thoughts in regards to the promises Bungie made for the new expansion, suggesting that should there ever be a Destiny 3, it would be full of recycled D1 and D2 levels. “At this speed, Destiny 3 will just reuse D1 and D2 levels ‘in a new and exciting way you didn’t ever expect,'” said a user on Reddit. “How do they justify making the same mistakes over and over again?”
Making the same mistakes over and over certainly appears to be Bungie’s modus operandi, though not without a significant amount of apologies, promises, and content outlines that haven’t actually done much to keep its player base for Destiny 2 from declining. That said, the ball is still in Bungie’s court, and it’s not too late to turn things around and make Destiny 2 a worthwhile investment of players’ time and money. We’ll be waiting.
Destiny 2 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
