Hey, everyone.

We’re planning to reveal the final live event for the Destiny 1 era next Wednesday. We’re calling it “Age of Triumph,” and we intend for it to be a fun and memorable celebration that will bring the first major chapter of our Destiny adventures to a fitting close. We’ll look back upon the three incredible years we’ve shared as a community, and look ahead to some final challenges and rewards that await you in the weeks ahead.

But first, we want to answer some important questions you’ve been asking about Destiny’s first full sequel.

Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.

We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.

We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create, unencumbered by the past. We’re looking forward to sharing more details with you later this year for how we will honor your legacy in the future.

Before we do that, we’re going to deliver “Age of Triumph” at the end of March. To show you what it’s all about, we’re planning a series of livestream showcases. We’ll be reintroducing you to some members of the Live Team, and they’ll be showing you the content and activity updates that they’ve been working on. The dates and times are listed below.

We kick things off next week.

Yeah, I think they kept what was needed to continue your journey. Yes, you can get attached to weapons and gear, but ultimately those are meant to be swappable. Your character's face is not swappable (unless you are one of those weird robot characters).

I've been rapidly refreshing waiting for someone to start the thread.

So yesterdays announcement was that today there would be an announcement which was basically, next week we will have more announcements. Awesome.

"We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters..."

I don't care about any of that stuff. Can I keep my armor and color combinations? I FINALLY got my hunter looking the way I want him too...I don't want to spend another 3 years doing this. I also bought a sparrow that matches my colors. Please don't make me use a character I hate for 3 more years!!

Why not just make a new character in Destiny 2 if you don't like your current appearance? Since nothing is coming forward BUT character appearance, and you say you don't like your current one, it should be fairly easy to do this and not miss out on anything.

[edit] - I DO like my current character (after 3 years of grinding for the right shader) hence I hope I can carry him forward, visually. -[end edit]

This is what I'm asking. All the stuff they mentioned moving forward, is all stuff I can't see. Gender, class, race...who cares. Face? It's 1 of 8 generic faces under a helmet all the time, who cares. Markings? I don't even really know what that is...the face paints? Who cares.

What I do care about, is having a Hunter that is orange, black and white. All of my characters, regardless of the game (and genre) is this color combination. The name "ManKitten" became my nickname yeeaars ago based off of a Cincinnati Bengals QB, hence I have used this color combo on everything.

For the past 3 years, I've had a Orange, white and blue hunter, because it was the closest option. What am I, a Fighting Illini fan? I don't think so!

It's my character, hell...it's me! That's the point of a first person game...I am the character! And if you are going to brag about "all the customization" you can do to your character...but it takes 3 years to be satisfied with how my character looks...that's bullshit.

I'm totally fine with everything starting fresh, I agree with all the comments above. But this shader system is stupid. If they want fancy shaders that glow electric, or sizzle with flames or something fine, but come on, can't I just pick some base colors so my character represents me?

I totally misunderstood your original post. I see what you are saying now. Perhaps since shaders aren't coming forward, they will just let us color our armor whatever we want in the Destiny 2?

Well, not a lot of individual items there, but one answer to a BIG question we've all been asking for a long time (and which, I suspect, Bungie themselves didn't always know the answer to). Generally speaking, most of your "stuff" from Destiny 1 will not carry forward, other than your characters' race/class and hair/markings.

I'm glad my Warlock's appearance will make it into Destiny 2. After spending 42 days (and counting!) playing with her, it would be hard to let her go. Maybe I'm just silly.

I bet Bungie will have options to modify your appearance in Destiny 2. It has been a much requested feature. I hope so, that way I can get rid of my Hunter's pink hair... it seemed like such a good idea at the time.

I have a female awoken who vaguely looks like Cortana. I'd love to change up the look at this point.

My first character is a Human Male who looks like a crappy old version of myself.

Seriously.... I have refrained from deleting characters due to the progress they've made. I really don't want to keep looking at the same character I created on release day since I hastily made them in order to start playing this game.

Oh well.

Hopefully I can change up the look a little in Des2ny

People pass around a 5 second clip followed by "Watch the full reveal, on [insert random date or big event coming up]!"

This has started getting me LESS hyped about stuff at this point!

The one thing I appreciate at least about this announcement is it's letting us know NOW, so when I can't get Y3 Mythoclast I can just forget about it, but the whole "we're letting you know we're going to announce something"... UGH!

they will resale them as "vintage" emotes/shaders/sparrows.

I understand not carrying the weapons and armor forward, but why not the sparrows/shaders and emotes?

also, it will be interesting story wise to see how they incorporate this, as our guardians have literally slayed near immortal Gods, only to presumably start over on progression.

Players (old and new) are in the Tower (your abilities show up as all maxed out, but you can't use them). It's a ceremonial day, so you're wearing fancy garbs instead of your armor, and your weapons are stored in the Vault. You run a few back and forth errands for folks, while chatting with Ghost about the festivities, when Ikora tells you that there are some urgent distress calls that she wants you to check out. You accept and start to head towards the Vault to pick up your gear while Ghost laments that you can never seem to take a day off, "Well, back to the grind" he quips.


Cutscene:
Shouting is heard as you walk up the steps. Cabal ships suddenly arrive and attack the Tower, bringing down a portion of the Wall, and blowing up the Vault (and all of your D1 loot), and you barely escape as the Tower is brought down. All of the ships retreat towards the city, and you tell Ghost that you need a weapon. "I've got just the thing" he says, just as the Cabal heavily damage the Traveler, causing it to pulse out a bright light that blinds you (Guardians in the background have been using Golden Gun, Hammers, and Warlock abilities to bring down enemy ships).

Gameplay: Cut back to your guardian as he looks at his hands, the Light visibly fading. You turn to see all of the Guardians no longer using abilities, switching to their guns to continue holding off the Cabal ships. You then spot your Ghost on the floor of the ship. He tells you that his Light is fading, so you pick up a fallen Guardian's Vision of Confluence and put Ghost on the seat behind you. You practice your aim by shooting at Cabal at nearby ships. Once you've brought down a dozen or so, the gun runs out of ammo, and the Cabal's shooting at the ship causes it to catch fire. "We've got to buy some time" you shout to the remaining Guardian on the ship, as you hear a voice behind you, "Like I said, Guardian, I've got just the thing..."
You turn to see your Ghost transmatting a large weapon, Gjallarhorn. You then pump unlimited ammo at passing ships, bringing them all down as the ship starts to lose altitude.

Cutscene: As the ship shakes and falls apart, you get thrown back, tossing Gjallarhorn aside to grab for Ghost. You look at his fading light, and brace for impact. "Stand by for revive, Ghost" you say, causing him to light up brightly, "just in case." The ship crashes.

First-person cutscene:
*black screen*
"Eyes up, Guardian."
You open your eyes, focusing on Ghost lying in front of you. "It worked... You're alive..." You stand up.
"Thank you, Ghost. What happened?"
"The attack has been repelled... for the moment... No word from the Vanguard... Too much chatter. Something happened to the Traveler."
You hear nearby gunfire, Cabal stragglers.
"I've kept something for you Guardian... it's not much... but it'll help..."
With his last bits of strength, Ghost transmats an old beat up rifle, the Khvostov 7G-02.
You pick Ghost up, his light dimming and flickering. "Hang in there, Little Light."
You put him in your bag, pick up the rifle, and start heading towards the City.
