With the release date swiftly approaching, more details are emerging about Bungie’s multiplayer first-person shooter, “#Destiny 2.” Among these includes the inclusion of #recordings in the game.

Listening to recordings

In the hands-on preview of “Destiny 2” as reported by IGN, the site mentions having encountered a side quest, which tasks the player to find several recordings. In the manner in which it is described, the recordings being referred to in the game are not the regular audio logs that are usually dispersed all throughout the game.

According to the site, the side quest happens in Nessus. It is one of the planetoids in the upcoming game installment that is suffering from an extreme infestation of Vex.

The side quest requires the player to pursue the recordings that were left by explorers who were previously there in the place. By listening to the recordings, the player will learn about the background of the previous explorers as well as the history of the frontiers. As it is a side quest, it will most likely have no direct impact on the major story detail of the first-person shooter game. However, this quest will contribute to the entire gaming experience of every player.

Other details

At this point, it is still not clear if the recordings will be part of the regular story content for gamers to uncover in the game. In fact, even a side quest in the upcoming title is still vague. Interestingly, Bungie is finding and making ways to improve the storytelling in the upcoming title. Most likely it is their approach for extracting the lore from the Grimoire and laying it out for the world.

In the previous game installment, there were several instances where storytelling was done through audio. In fact, the majority of the in-game stories used audio save of course for some storyline cinematics and grimoire. Audio has been one of the main ingredients of the first game installment. In the upcoming title, however, Bungie added a more visual form of storytelling.

There has been an avalanche of information flooding the Internet right now about the gaming studio’s efforts of improving the storytelling in the upcoming game. It seems that Bungie is keeping its promise that it will improve more on the storytelling experience of the game.

The highly anticipated online multiplayer shooter game will launch on October 6 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. “Destiny 2” will be released on the PC platform on October 24.
