Players of the original Destiny won't be getting much when transitioning to Destiny 2, but there are a number of freebies up for grabs to those that did spend time in the first game of the franchise.
Bungie published a new blog post to explain their plans for veteran Destiny players, starting by saying, "Even before our old friend Cayde revealed that your stuff (but, more importantly, his stuff) would soon fall prey to the Red Legion, we let you know that we were going to honor our veteran players who join us again in Destiny 2. Today, we're going to shine a little light on what you can expect if you count yourself among those ranks."
Bungie was hesitant to go into too many details - it seems that they've carefully planned out rewards for returning players, but they do not want to spoil the fun. Bungie did, however, mention that there will be a number of ways players will be able to showcase their early support for the Destiny franchise.
Firstly, Bungie announced a number of emblems that players will be able to use. Each emblem is unlocked for specific reasons. Including playing a Moment of Triumph during Destiny year 1, completing the Taken King in year 2, or achieving over 5,000 grimoire score over the course of Destiny.
Bungie will also be offering a number of T-shirts for reaching different accomplishments before August 1, 2017.
Destiny 2 launches on Xbox and PS4 on September 6, 2017, and launches on PC on October 24, 2017.
