DESTINY 2’s Nathan Fillion-Filled Teaser Has Us Stoked

Guardians, your destiny awaits.

With the official reveal trailer for Destiny 2 dropping tomorrow, Bungie decided to keep the hype-train going by dropping a very funny cinematic teaser featuring Nathan Fillion reprising his role of Cayde-6, everyone’s favorite Hunter Vanguard. Our good friend is kicking back at what looks like some sort of Guardian bar, sipping on a drink (it looks like he may have had more than just one drink) while telling a grand story about a time he was attacked during some “super boring meeting” and had to do “a lot of shooting.” Once he finished reciting his tale, the camera pans out to show that he’s actually in the middle of a battlefield in the ruins of the Last City (an important location in the world). Feast your eyes on the hilarity above.

Despite the tongue-in-cheek nature of the clip, there’s actually quite a lot we can glean about the upcoming game. First, that there’s actually humor in it–one of the main complaints fans had of the original game was that it took itself way too seriously. There was never any levity to bring some soul to the game. Second, having Nathan Fillion’s voice prominently featured in the teaser could be a hint that he’ll be playing a bigger role in the sequel–one can only hope. Why not put that great talent to good use?

Regarding tomorrow’s official reveal trailer, we’re hoping to see some actual gameplay, and maybe a hint at the direction Bungie is heading regarding the changes and improvements that are on the way in the sequel. Our wish-list includes a more comprehensive narrative, and hopefully a more robust campaign. The first game was criticized—rightfully so—for creating an interesting universe that had very little backstory and substance.

An overhaul on the leveling system and loot drops would also be appreciated. For many, it was a drag that players weren’t able to level up to the max (which meant you weren’t ready for a raid) because they were missing one piece of armor. I remember having to complete the Vault of Glass over five times to get all of the armor I needed to progress my ranking. The grind became a point of contention for many. Equally, making it easier to get rare loot without making the game a breeze would be appreciated. Overall, simplifying the leveling system would go a long way in making it easier for new players to jump in.

Making the planets more expansive and alive would also make for a much more interesting experience. I’d like to see more secrets hidden around the explorable planets. The first game did have hidden chests in caves and such, so Bungie was already headed in that direction.

A personal wish of mine would be to have Peter Dinklage back to voice the in-game Ghost. I know he wasn’t great in the first game, but he brought some much needed charm. His VO became a sort of joke among those who played hundreds of hours of Destiny. Bring Dinklebot back!

What do you guys hope to see announced tomorrow? Are there any features you’d like added to Destiny 2? Are you even interested in a sequel? Drop your thoughts in the comment section below!
