Third Subclass Rumor Details

Published on: Dec 4, 2014 @ 13:51

Is there a third subclass coming? That’s still a possibility. Bungie has officially shed some light on the issue.

GameInformer recently got an exclusive first look at The Dark Below, and was able to talk to Bungie about the “third subclass” rumor that’s been going around.

Lead designer Tyson Green was asked about the third slot of the character screen, and he clarified that,

“The reason why there’s that third subclass slot there, is that some people may recall that we used to have a mechanism for sealing a build and locking your choices in, which would give your build a boost. The game would let you make another copy of that build. That’s what the slot is there for.”

If you remember in the Beta, there was a locking mechanic that never actually made it into the game.

Tyson went on to say that, “It shouldn’t be read as a tacit promise, but the fact that subclasses are swappable should make players excited about the future.”

Will there be more than 2 in the future? That’s still a possibility, and maybe even more customization between the 2 choices we’ve currently got for each class.

Exotic Upgrades

If you haven’t seen our article/video outing the new Exotic upgrade process using Exotic Shards, click here.

There’s some important new information on the Exotic Bounty process post-DLC:

So basically, you’ll want to wait to turn in any Exotic bounty you’re working on. After The Dark Below has been released, you’ll automatically get the upgraded version of the Exotic.

Avoid having to pay for it and wait!

    I hope the 3rd subclass will be a different one from the “leaked” ones since I didn’t eve liked one of them…

    Aaaaaaargh. I just turned in my Pocket Infinity bounty 🙁

      Pocket Infinity right now has a bug that gives superfast charge time after the first shot. Bungie has said they’re gonna fix this soon.

      In the meantime, might as well pwn some PVP. It’s pretty much instant kills right now.

    Wait, what about the Exotic weapons we already got fullly upgraded? Does this mean we have to upgrade them yet again or…??/
