Destiny 2's game director Christopher Barrett has outlined a number of changes and planned updates coming to the sequel in 2018, promising that the developer is "not just listening, we are doing".

Bungie has had a rough couple of months due to questionable XP-systems locking players out of paid-for content, as well as the overall lack of end-game content and their less then stellar communication with the community and the state of the game's microtransactions.

When it comes to Eververse, more new cosmetics will come from activities, meaning some Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships will be put in reward pools. While this part is unclear as to what they mean by direct purchase, Bright Engrams will be changed to allow players to get the items that they want, more often.

It looks like the team has responded fully, short of removing Eververse together, and the upcoming Crimson Days event will be the ideal chance to see if they have followed through.

We are updating Raid rewards to make them more unique and interesting. These include mods featuring Raid-specific perks, an adjustment to make sure Raid items drop with each major encounter.

Below is the extract of Eververse changes that player will see after the new update. Bungie is also adding Masterwork versions of armor and reevaluating how gear mods work, Barrett said. During Crimson Days, leveling up will award both a Bright Engram and a Crimson Engram, each of which is strongly weighted to drop non-duplicate rewards.

To say that there has been some disappointment with the end game for Destiny 2, would be an understatement. "We are excited to share the details as soon as we have them worked out".

Bungie is still investigating XP earn rates, something the Destiny 2 team has been criticized for before. The devs will be evaluating how Mods play into the Bright Engram economy as a result, as they are "sensitive to pay-to-win outcomes".

Following on from the endgame lock-out, Bungie were quick to categorise what the difference is between expansions and seasons, to ensure that base game players would continue to have access to all the base game activities for the games lifespan. Lastly, this update will include PC Tower Chat, quickplay improvements, the appearance of Fireteam members on the destination map. If you play on PC, you have been flabbergasted that this was not in at launch. After Curse of Osiris confused everyone by locking vanilla players out of certain content, Bungie is looking to clear things up.
