Bungie has announced the final Destiny 1 live event, "Age of Triumph", that will be starting at the end of March. The event is being described as a "fun memorable celebration that will bring the first major chapter of our Destiny adventures to a fitting close." Bungie plans on revealing more detailed information on March 8, along with a planned series of livestreams to show off the event activities and rewards. So far there are three planned reveal dates for Age of Triumph: "Age of Triumph Reveal" on March 8, "Age of Triumph Weekly Rituals" on March 15, and "Age of Triumph Sandbox Update" on March 22.
After the introduction of Age of Triumph, the post starts to talk about the sequel and what things will carry over from Destiny 1. The first issue talked about was what is going to happen to all your stuff from Destiny 1. The post states "Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward." This means that all of the items, weapons, Sparrows, and emotes will not be transferable to the sequel. However, the post goes on to say that the "class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections..." will carry over if that character has reached level 20 and completed the "Black Garden" story mission. Also mentioned was that Bungie plans to "award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments."
Lastly, the post explains that the reason for not carrying much over from the first game is so that they can "introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel..." The post finishes talking about saying they look forward to sharing more details later this year.
While we have to wait until next week for some actual details on the final live event, it is good to see that Bungie is getting ready to go full speed ahead in developing Destiny 2. The rewards we'll get in Destiny 2 from having a save from Destiny 1 will probably be shaders, emblems, or ships, with the possibility that we might get a unique Sparrow or emote. If Bungie can maintain what made the first addictive and fun, while improving on its flaws and weaknesses, Destiny 2 will be a must buy when it launches.
