Via GlamFM and this video.

Essentially, over on a Mega Bloks fansite, a poster noticed that a bunch of unannounced Mega Bloks sets went up on Amazon early.

However, one of the Destiny sets features a thing that clearly hasn't happened in the game yet, and fits with some statements we've heard from Shinobi and Kotaku regarding the Tower and the Cabal. The game also hints at this itself, so I'm going to go ahead and assume this is most likely correct.

Anyway, on the topic of leak, maybe there are actually NPCs that fight with you in the raids, story, and/or dungeons now instead of just sending you to do literally every important thing in existence?

- Destiny Cabal Goliath Tank Building Set
Buildable Goliath tank with rotating turret and articulated jets
​Tank fully opens to reveal interior troop bay
​Four highly detailed, super-poseable micro action figures include Commander Zavala, one Cabal Phalanx, and two Cabal Psion
​Zavala comes with detachable armor and Answering Chords auto rifle
​Cabal figures come with detachable Siege Dancer armor, weapons, and shield accessory

- Cabal Bruiser Battle Building Set
Buildable hangar platform
Set the scene for a clash between a Bruiser's crushing strength and a master swordsman's skill
A legendary warrior faces his greatest contest yet in the Tower hangar
Wielding his Raze-Lighter, hero of the Crucible Lord Shaxx prepares to pit his blade against the furious cleavers of a Cabal Red Guard


- Aspect Of Glass Building Set [Note: This one is in the game already.]
​Buildable Aspect of Glass jump ship with opening cockpit and working launcher
​Highly detailed, super-poseable Hunter micro action figure
​Figure comes with detachable Spektar armor and Lord of Wolves shotgun
Jump ship stand features transparent articulated display rod

Hmm interesting. If this is an actual new set based off of Destiny 2 that very well could mean an official reveal is coming soon if they are already developing merch

possibly it does?

The first set, which is a Goliath Tank, it mentions having an interior troop bay. The Goliath in game isn't big enough to hold troops like that. It definitely doesn't' have a troop bay on it.

Safe assumption Iīd say.

BTW: Didnīt something Star Wars related leak through a Lego Set once?

Funny stuff.

Something about VII was leaked, IIRC Rey using a lightsaber leaked through the toys themselves.

Huh. I'm more surprised by Destiny Mega Bloks haha, these aren't out in the UK I guess. I would definitely grab my kid a few sets otherwise. Mega Bloks are horrifying to build compared to Lego but he loves the halo tank.

Didn't they have to tear it down and start again? I wouldn't be surprised if it's not coming until next year.

Anyway, I don't mind the content or designs, but I just hope this one has a proper fleshed-out campaign that takes advantage of the level design. The gameplay is so good, and we just need some good game design to back that up.

the only thing i didn't like about destiny was the lack of matchmaking or a party finder. i don't care how fun your game is i'm not spending time going around forums/websites looking and waiting for people to join up with me. tried it and it's a waste of time.

if they somehow improve upon that then i'm in. if they aren't gonna do it then at least make it optional so i can keep playing the game. i gave up at lvl 29. only came back to do story content with the expansions.

Thatīs the never ending argument. I will always be against MM for Raids. Raids are such a commitment, I really donīt want to be matched with guys who donīt use their mics, donīt know what they are doing or drop out after an hour or two. I agree that there should be tools in place, but no straight up MM.

i get what you mean. i'd be more than happy to stick on my mic, learn how to play it, and commit the time but i've just never been able to get into one.

they need to strike some kind of balance. make it easier for people to get into but not dilute the experience. even if it was a simple in game group finder so you could easily find/invite players instead of having to come out the game go to sites and wait for people.

This shouldn't be an argument, because there's no argument to be had. Options are good. If you don't want to use the matchmaking, don't. The function existing will not prevent you from continuing to play the game how you want. Other games with raids have matchmaking for their raids, there's no reason for Destiny not to.

Thatīs wrong though. Give people the option and they will use it - have three horrible experiences and never bother with it again.

Oh man if Destiny 2 news starts to leak that will be great. It will be cool if some NPC decides to join us in raids, it will add a much needed story element to the game play.

If the nonmatchmaking for raid argument comes up again, I have this total biscuit rant about the nerfing of content for casuals I could throw down, it's many years old but still relevant today to many games. Though I rather wait until I'm a member to make a thread about it.

I don't know, Bungie has been pretty good at mastering the drip feed of news on Twitch for their community when it comes to content releasing. Anything Destiny will bring big news, they don't need E3 and it be lost in the shuffle of other big news.

It's Destiny, not a new IP. They don't need all that much time for marketing. 3-4 months is plenty.

I remember folks saying that the Rise of Iron Artifact that temporarily switches a Mob to fight for you was likely a test-run for friendly AI. Maybe that's true.

I hope it is. I grew up with consoles and remember seeing that in Phantasy Star Online. I thought it was novel and would love to see it in Destiny.

I think this Mega Bloks leak proves a 2017 release. No way are they working on these sets right now if the game is a 2018 release.

Mega Blocks: "So, y'all not gonna change the story anymore?"
Bungie: "Nope, it's not changing, cross our hearts!"
Mega Blocks: "OK, so we can start pre-production, right?"
Bungie: "Yep. It's gonna be yuuuuge!"
Mega Blocks: "OK then, we'll roll with this Cabal attacking Tower set. Thanks Bungie dudes."
...a week later...
Mega Blocks: "Let's give Bungie a few more weeks before we do anything."
Bungie: "Alright team, were letting you go (don't sue us for backpay please!) and gutting the story (it's too clear). The rest of you have 6 months to move towards a more obscure minimalist story. Break!"

I consider myself a big Destiny fan and I think this is a huge ask from Bungie.

As a result... They will do something drastic. I think D2 will ship with even less story and lore than D1 every attempted. They know their core strength is gunplay, be it Crucible/Trials or PvE and raids. As such, I presume they will deliver story arc content piecemeal and slow. Of course I want to get a cut scene at the end of D2 second expansion where The Speaker takes us into the core of the Traveler, but I doubt this will happen. As great as the world is, a lot of its greatness derives from mystery. And since Destiny has a 10-year-plan, we will probably never get the lore treatment we want. Things will stay ambiguous and loose - indefinitely.

As for the Cabal angle: expected, but weak. We have seen Cabal since the beginning of D1. They have their strikes, story missions on Mars. They had some plays against the Taken in TTK, but were completely missing from Rise of Iron's narrative. They are the brutes of D1. As such, they are not a very charismatic enemy. Building a narrative around them might mean that the new Cabal assault force in D2 brings with it some unknown enemy instead. Imagine Cabal infested with Destiny's Flood or something.

I want to be wrong though.

There is no way that they can ship with less story and lore than D1.
