World of Warcraft-style titles are coming to Destiny 2 with the launch of the game’s upcoming expansion, Forsaken. For the truly hardcore Destiny player, Titles will be a way to show off your long-term commitment to the game.
In a video doc posted earlier this week, Bungie briefly discussed the new titles, which will be rewarded to players for completing sets of Triumphs. For those of you not aware, Triumphs are long-term achievements, something you have to plug away at for a while in order to earn. I’m not exactly a Destiny nut, but I’m reliably told that getting hosts of PvP kills or completing raids are good ways to secure yourself a Triumph.
To earn a title, it seem that you’ll need to complete an entire set of Triumphs. In that video I mentioned, which you can watch below, there’s a brief glimpse of one of those Titles, Chronicler. To earn that, you’ll need to complete all of the game’s Lore Triumphs, which doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you can just bash out in an afternoon.
Once you’ve earned your title, it’ll appear beneath your username while you wander around in-game, letting other players now of your achievements. A similar system has existed in World of Warcraft for years, and titles offer a way to continue progressing even if you’ve collected all the high-end raid gear you can get your hands on.
There aren’t very many titles, and it seems that players will have to spend a while uncovering all of them. With that in mind, don’t expect to see them all that soon. The Destiny 2: Forsaken release date is next week, September 4, so you can start working on your fancy new title very soon. Check out Bungie’s discussions about the new expansion in the video above.
