Fortune 2( also known as Fortune 2 New Light) is a free- to- play online-only multiplayer first- person shooter videotape game developed by Bungie. It was first launched as a pay- to- play game in 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and MS Windows. It came free- to- play, exercising the games as a service model, under the New Light title on October 1, 2019, followed by the game's release on Stadia the following month, and also PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/ S platforms in December 2020. The game was published by Activision until December 31, 2018, when Bungie acquired the publishing rights to the ballot. It's the effect of 2014's Fortune and its posterior expansions.
Set in a" legendary wisdom fabrication" world, the game features a multiplayer" participated- world" terrain with rudiments of part- playing games. Like the original, conditioning in Fortune 2 are divided among player versus terrain( PvE) and player versus player( PvP) game types. In addition to normal story operations, PvE features three- player" strikes" dungeons and six- player raids. A free bat command mode is also available for each destination which features public events as well as conditioning not available in the original. These conditioning have an emphasis on disquisition of the destinations and relations with non-player characters( NPCs); the original Fortune only featured NPCs in social spaces. PvP features objective- grounded modes, as well as traditional deathmatch game modes.
Players assume the part of a Guardian, defenders of Earth's last safe megacity as they apply a power called Light to cover humanity from different alien races and combat the brewing trouble of the Darkness. Like the original Fortune, the game features expansion packs that further the story and adds new content across the game. Year One of Fortune 2 featured two small expansions, Curse of Osiris and Warmind. A third, large expansion, Abandoned, began Year Two with an overhaul on gameplay. The release of the coming expansion, Shadowkeep( October 2019) began Year Three. Shadowkeep and unborn releases are considered standalone releases, not taking players to enjoy former decoration content. Released alongside this fourth expansion was an interpretation of Fortune 2 called New Light, a free- to- play re-release of Fortune 2, which also included access to the first two expansions. Separate seasonal passes also came available for each season's content. While the main Fortune 2 game has ago been free- to- play, all other content requires purchasing.
Year Four saw the biggest overhaul on the game, as nearly half of the game's content from its first three times, including the original base crusade as well as Curse of Osiris and Warmind, was removed from the game and placed into what Bungie calls the Fortune Content Vault. Alongside this change, Year Four began with the fifth expansion, Beyond Light, which introduced the power of Darkness to the players. Bungie described this expansion as the morning of a new period for the ballot, as it'll be followed up by The Witch Queen in early 2022 and Lightfall in early 2023. There will also be a final chapter, The Final Shape, to follow Lightfall to conclude the first saga of Fortune, called the" Light and Darkness Saga," before the morning of a new saga.
Upon release, Fortune 2 entered generally favourable reviews from critics. Praise concentrated on its advancements, particularly with respects to its original story, as well as its gameplay, illustrations, disquisition focus, multiplayer, and public occasions. Reviews were divided on the recategorization of the munitions, the Leviathan raid, and new modes. Fortune 2 was nominated for and won colourful awards, similar as at The Game Awards 2017 and Game Critics Awards.
