The Season of the Deep has begun destiny 2, bringing new dungeons and activities, new vehicles, and new armor for each Guardian class. Each armor set is based on a major PlayStation franchise and comes with an associated finisher.
The three classes Destiny 2: basically boils down to the three armor classes found in most RPGs: heavy, medium, and light; warrior, rogue and mage; Titan, Hunter and Warlock.
The new Warlock class armor is inspired by Jin Saka, the main character Ghost of Tsushima.
“Bungie’s artists did a great job taking elements of historical Japanese armor and blending them with their own sci-fi inspired art style,” said Omar Aveida, Character Art Lead at Sucker Punch Productions. “My favorite aspects are the combination of the traditional samurai half-mask (menpo) with the samurai-style topknot to create one unified and uniquely hard-surfaced mask.”
For the Titans, their new armor was taken from Kratos’ design God of war.
“With Kratos, we’d be remiss if his iconic tattoos weren’t front and center in the design,” said Josh Deeb, Bungie’s art director. “Beyond that, it was all about embodying the strength and power of the character.”
Finally, hunters were treated to a new armor inspired by Alo Horizon: Forbidden West.
“It’s always difficult to combine two very visually defined and powerful IPs into one impressive joint design,” commented Guerrilla lead artist Ilya Golitsyn. “With Destiny and Horizon, the former has a high-tech and synthetic look, while the latter has a more natural and primitive feel.”
“For Aloy, it was about capturing the hybrid of technology [and] handmade, natural materials. We spent a lot of time working to make sure the details were just right,” Dib says, “…even down to making sure the stitching on the hunter’s cloak was just right, the way the Aloy tribe makes their clothes.”
All outfits are now available for Season of the Deep.
