The console beta is under way and Bungie has been carefully studying players’ reactions.
Players who preordered the game have had access for at least a day now and that’s enough for the devs to come out with the first comments about polishing Destiny 2.
Rob Engeln, the beta design lead, had some thoughts to share:
“The PvE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old. So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting. For example, we too felt that ammo (especially power ammo) was too scarce in PvE. In addition to retuning the drop rates, we built a system that guarantees power ammo drops for you and your Fireteam from certain enemies, giving power weapons a more reliable and predictable role in your arsenal. Other areas where we’ve made significant tuning changes include grenade effectiveness in PvE, Boss vitality, and weapon damage against non-player combatants.”
So, there you go, the thing that people complained about most in the forums is the thing that the devs are taking care of.
Remember, the beta is still live and it opens up to non early access players today. So grab your PS4 or Xbox One and shoot away.
