The Commander from Destiny 2's Red Legion

One of the biggest complaints people had with Destiny was the fairly generic and misguided storyline. A real shame since the lore itself was extremely interesting, yet none of it was present in game - you had to go to a website in order to even access it! Thankfully, Bungie has already confirmed that they have learned their lesson and that Destiny 2's story will be much more cohesive and... well, sensible!

While the recently posted launch trailer does not reveal any of the important story elements, it does showcase enough of the overall plot to give you a general idea of who you are, who you're going to be fighting, and what exactly the 'big bad' is trying to ruin everything for. If you don't really care about the storyline and just want to see giant aliens get shot in the face, worry not as the trailer has plenty of that as well. Have a look:

Destiny 2 will be coming to consoles on September 6th, while the PC version will be arriving slightly delayed on October 24th. If you would like to give it a try before spending any serious money, you're in luck as there will be a free Open Beta next week. The Early Access phase will begin on August 28th for those that have pre-ordered Destiny 2, while everyone else will be able to jump in on August 29th.

As with the console version, the PC Open Beta will only last for a couple of days, until August 31st. Its not much, but it should be enough to let you know whether Destiny 2 is the type of game you'd enjoy or not.
