Destiny 2 is gearing up for its PC Open Beta on the 28th and then its full console release on September 6th. To prepare for these upcoming dates, the MMO first-person shooter has been releasing a series of videos introducing us to some of the important characters in the story. Today, we met the main villain, Ghaul.
The video, being less than 1 minute in length, does tell us pretty much everything we need to know about this big baddie. Posted on the official Destiny Youtube channel, we learn that this hulking mass of a man isn’t fooling around in his quest to take the Light and rise up in power and status. According to Ghaul himself, he was “born an outcast” and “left for dead” which only made him stronger. If that is true then players better be on their toes because this guy looks to be a threat.
The release of this video and videos like these on the Destiny Youtube channel certainly helps to strengthen the idea that Destiny 2 will indeed be much more focused on story than its predecessor. We have “met” a number of characters from the game through this little video series and it sets up the character and their place in the story quite nicely.
As previously stated, the Destiny 2 PC Open beta starts tomorrow for those who have preordered the game. It goes live for everyone else on the 29th. Console versions of the game will be released on September 6th while PC players will sadly have to wait until the 24th of October. Hopefully these “Meet the Character” videos will tide us over until then.
Will you be buying Destiny 2 when it comes out? Or have you already preordered it? And what do you think of the “Meet the Character” series of videos they have been releasing? Let us know!
