Snippet -



With every AAA game developer seemingly rushing to implement some form of microtransaction or other into their games during the tail end of 2017, it became almost inevitable that there would be a backlash to the new direction that the gaming industry seemed to be heading in. One such game that has suffered as a result of this feedback is Destiny 2, though a whole host of other reasons have been contributing to the game’s declining playerbase. In any case, thanks to the existence of an in-game store dubbed Eververse, players could buy loot boxes containing a randomized assortment of cosmetic items with real money, which obviously riled up the game’s audience as more and more of the game’s content got locked behind the Eververse paywall.

To Bungie’s credit, it appears as though the once revered company has finally caught wind of just how hated Eververse is following weeks, if not months, of incessant complaining on Destiny 2’s official forums and elsewhere. In their most recent Development Update, Game Director Christopher Barrett stated that “We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards.”

As such, Bungie plans to implement the following changes to Destiny 2’s Eververse over the following months (it should be noted that there is no specific date as to when these changes will be fully implemented across the board):

Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships will appear in activity rewards and achievement reward pools
A gameplay path to earn Bright and Event Engrams (loot boxes) and all associated rewards will be implemented
Players will be given more direct purchase options, and Bright Engrams will be adjusted to allow players to get specific, desirable loot more often

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm,” to which Trump whispered back, “I am the storm.”
