Destiny 2: Beyond Light is nearly right here and Season of Arrivals is coming to an in depth. As Bungie preps the web sport for a bunch of recent content material, there are tweaks needing to be made for sure actions throughout the present sport. With main tech tweaks within the works, one of many elements being quickly affected is the very talked-about Prophecy Dungeon.
In a current Bungie weblog submit, Destiny engineering director David Aldridge opened up somewhat bit about among the tech upgrades that will likely be inflicting a brief disturbance in what gamers can and can’t partake in. The group is shifting its mission scripting mannequin to run on the Physics Host as a substitute of the present Mission Host, which you’ll be taught extra concerning the distinction right here. The total purpose behind this variation for the devs to have the ability to create extra “novel mission mechanics” with full entry to the sport state versus the restricted choices supplied by the Mission Host.
This new change is rolling out with Beyond Light, however the change is not as simple as pushing a button. Bungie, in a transfer of transparency, talked about that it’s attainable that this roll out will embody bugs at first whereas the behavioral adjustments alter to the brand new host. According to Aldridge:
“The new scripting environment changed many behaviors in complex ways, and you may see interesting behavior changes or bugs in pre-Beyond-Light missions (and public events, and similar) that were originally built and tested on the previous system. We’ve tested these missions heavily and stamped out many bugs, but some will undoubtedly slip through. We’ll be monitoring and fixing remaining bugs over time. In some cases, these issues were more severe – for example, they caused the Prophecy dungeon to be unavailable temporarily. We’re all excited for its triumphant return, slated for the end of this year!”
Another addition to that is that gamers can now fireteam it up within the Tower versus having to cycle via a protracted Tower reload. That might sound small, however as an avid Destiny participant I’m really wanting ahead to this fairly a bit. Currently, even in case you’re on the tower together with your good friend in the identical server, it nonetheless boots you again to house. Being capable of hyperlink up extra seamlessly goes to be a pleasant little adjustement in the long term.
That being stated, this variation goes to imply a couple of in-game elements will must be adjusted in anticipation of the aforementioned bugs. One of these actions is the Prophecy Dungeon, which is truthfully essentially the most beautiful dungeon created to this point (to me). Not to fret although, will probably be again this yr. In a observe up Reddit submit, Bungie confirmed Prophecy will likely be again earlier than the tip of December. So far, the group has been very understanding of this choice and are glad the elimination is not everlasting.
For now, Guardians can look ahead to the highway forward when Destiny 2: Beyond Light launches on November 10.[Source: Bungie, Reddit]
