Today, the release of the last extension for Destiny 2 marks a video game where players travel through space trying to buy enough shaders to please Bobby Kotick. Previously, Destiny 's extensions followed a certain known rhythm. The Black Armory is very different.
Instead of releasing individually-priced extensions in Destiny 2 's second year, Bungie develops a $ 35 annual passport that gives you access to a regular stream of assignments and other content. Sometimes it will mean new activities and even new raid one of them goes live on Friday, but what it does not want include are new story campaigns, such as previous DLC extensions like curse of Osiris and Warmind did.

Black Armory is the first of three scheduled updates, and if you are under 600 power (like me, sitting pretty around 535), it will not immediately give you so much. The first and most visible search takes you down to The Black Armory, a strange new area in the tower where a robot called Ada-1 gives you a little snare and sends you off with an attempt to unlock the first Lost Forge, a high-level martial arts and one of the biggest selling points in today's update.
The search for unlocking this Forge-and you must excuse my language here, sucks the royal ass. There are a series of time-consuming activities like "Get 15 Hive Multikills With A Force Gun" and "Kill powerful enemies until they release random items" that players have already found a way to get through as quickly as possible. (Pro Tips: As with so many previous grind heavy missions, you will want to watch farmers in the first raid, Leviathan.)
When you get through that step, you will be met by a 610-power minimum forge where You will not even be able to hurt enemies if you are anywhere near my light level. You can look around and see what's more in The Black Armory just to find that the other missions available at the moment are also massive gala-fests, as follows:
It will sure to be more interesting missions In the coming weeks, players have already found a secret that will undoubtedly lead to something cool, but all that is available today The Black Armory is designed for high-level hardcore Destiny 2 ] players who do not care treadmill. Bungie has increased the Prime Engram award to anyone under 550, making leveling a little more tasty, but it's still a very long way to 610, the least you have to do the first Forge. (And words are Forge getting more and harder as you go, and the boss is 630.)
It's best not to think of The Black Armory as a new DLC in the traditional sense. Rather, there are a collection of new reasons to keep your slip through Vanguard Strike and Gambit matches. If you already enjoy Forsaken and you have not given up on the gate, you will find yourself with many new things to do. But if you have not already invested, The Black Armory will probably not get you back.
