As part of a program called IGN First, Bungie has given players their first extended look at Destiny 2’s new social space The Farm. This location is meant to replace the Tower from the first game which is destroyed at the beginning of Destiny 2.
Narrative Lead Ryan Ebenger walked through the new area with IGN’s Destin Legarie in a video that showcased The Farm’s size and features. The Farm will be inhabited by various NPCs and refugees along with vendors like the Postmaster and Cryptarch. The area will constantly be evolving throughout Destiny 2 with new NPCs coming and going, making The Farm feel more dynamic.
There will be events and activities that players can unlock, however Bungie will discuss those at a later date. If you get tired of shooting the Cabal during your playthrough, there is a small soccer field set up complete with posts that register goals. As people spend more time in the area, Ebenger hopes players will find new ways to create their own fun.
The Farm has a maximum limit of 26 players, but with all of the NPCs roaming around it should feel much more populated than the Tower.
