Bungie has finally pulled back the curtain and let us take a closer look at the first zone we’ll be spending time with in Destiny 2!

I’ve broken them down here by Guardian type: Titans feel great. They, more than the other classes (perhaps only slightly more than Warlocks) feel powerful. Combined with the most versatile movement ability in the Beta – the strafe jump – the Titan wall ability is a force to
After spending almost a week with a beta that was very light on PvE content, today we got a chance to see some of the exciting Patrol activities waiting for us on Nessus!
