One of the most crucial decisions in making sure a gaming platform will sell out is the type of games you put in it. But in the case of Sony's #PlayStation 4, it may soon share its exclusive game "Destiny 2" to PC and #Xbox One. According to the latest news, Luke Smith of Bungie confirmed this on his twitter account. Sources reveal that it will finally arrive in 2018 and it will include some of the game's significant maps and exotic weapons.

It is not clear why Bungie is developing the game for the two platforms, but fans are ecstatic to hear the news. Included in the "#Destiny 2" for Xbox One and PC is the "Lake of Shadows" strike, "Retribution" PvP map, the "City Apex" ship, exotic weapons specifically the Borealis and some exclusive gears.

During Sony's E3 2017 event, it was revealed that the weapons category of the game has been changed. From the original game wherein weapons are categorized by primary, secondary and heavy; they are now called kinetic, energy and power. While the reason for the change was not mentioned in the description, Mark Noseworthy the Project Leader explained the individual capacity of each weapon category.

Power weapons in 'Destiny 2'

Weapons in the "Destiny 2" game were significantly developed to be more powerful than its previous versions. Some of them under the Power category include the Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, The Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher and the Fusion launcher. Meanwhile, an interesting new development is the inclusion of in-game clan support. Sources reveal that the support will not only allow players to join clans in the game, but to give it an identity such as name and a personal banner and motto.

Release date on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC

"Destiny 2" is expected to release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console on the 6th of September 2017 while PC gamers will have to wait for it until October. The game's newest friendly feature is clans wherein individual players will significantly benefit from the clan, while the clan will not benefit from the individual players. This is something that the developer hopes will encourage players to join clans in the game.

Noseworthy responded to questions about "Destiny 2" leaving its PS4 exclusivity when he said, "We will never hold back game performance on a platform in order to appease a partner... we optimize for each platform's tech to deliver the best social action game experience we can." Does it mean the Xbox One has more graphics power than the PS4 console?
