Believe it or not, Destiny 2 is not a soccer game

And you can play football in it, and it’s even enjoyable. In beta, the new community space, the farm, was available for an hour – we looked at what it had to offer.

If you have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One console, you can still play Destiny 2 until Monday morning at 6 a.m., watch the first story mission, play through the Inverted Spire strike, or try your hand at Crucible’s two ways to fight player-player. The opportunity has been around for days, with pre-clients able to take on the challenges even longer, but Bungie opened the farm tonight from 7 to 8, where we’ll pass the time between missions.

NPCs haven’t been encountered yet, and it wouldn’t have made much sense – it would have been superfluous to buy for that few hours even if the game offered the opportunity to do so. Slightly smaller in size than the Tower was in the first game, but there were seemingly accessible areas from which an automatic message was diverted back. The place is very cozy, Horizon Zero Dawn reminded me of the environment: rusty metal structures are inundated by nature, all green, birds chirping, a waterfall trickling down to a small stream. Perfect for being able to abstract from the war, that the Cabals had just broken through our former abode, every point in the galaxy is in danger, and we’re all going to die.

The best of all is the football field. It was also possible to kick a ball and steer a ball in the Tower, but if we didn’t set ourselves a goal (kick off the tower, steer it from one end of the complex to the other), it didn’t make much sense. Now we get a specific beach ball-sized cargo, and two gates that count the goals and play fireworks when either side reaches three points. Anyone can get in and out at any time, so it’s relatively hard to have serious matches in the 26-space community, but I managed to get stuck and play for minutes with a buddy unknown to me without anyone trying to cross us. Bungie obviously didn’t think about it all, the ball behaves in a completely bizarre way and we can use the moves we do anyway (mean jump, slip, sprint) but it’s perfect to hit the time while we wait for our raides team.

Such was the match, plus a quick walk up and down:
