I’m able to finest shout into the void so repeatedly that Destiny 2 avid gamers desperately want to be paying consideration to the sport’s weekly Veil Containment messages, and that Bungie needs to achieve something, anything else, to carry out them more accessible and let of us know they exist.
This week, in but any other valuable yarn expose, Neomuna co-founder Chioma Esi, beleaguered and heart-broken from the loss of life of Maya and the upsetting powers of The Veil, talks about Rasputin the AI Warmind who ended up discovering the hidden Neomuna colony and calling it “Nefele Stronghold” in its records.
Esi dispatches the Cloudstrider Stargazer to leave Neptune and gallop erase those records. We knew that sooner than, but Esi finds that she wasn’t doing this to conceal Neomuna from war, as for that reason we constantly belief we’d by no manner identified about them, that they have been attempting to steer clear of things delight in the Cave in and the following wars, but because Esi believed that no one else needs to be exposed to The Veil, that it used to be too harmful for any individual else to salvage entry to. Neomuna wasn’t hiding, it desired to be quarantined.
This clearly has implications for the incontrovertible truth that there might per chance be now an whole metropolis built round Neomuna and it’s doing things delight in projecting the consciousness of the population into dinky holograms as they sleep to steer clear of the Vex invasion. And it’s largest protectors, the most up-to-date Cloudstriders delight in Nimbus, attain no longer appear to know about any of this history the least bit. Also, now we have been uh, roughly 50 toes away from the apex of the Veil as soon as we fought Calus and now as soon as we hear these messages, the object so harmful that they had to conceal a full planet colony so no one would gallop attain it. Now not enormous!
The quite lots of expose, all as soon as more, in about 90 seconds of dialogue, is that as soon as Stargazer left he brough alongside Lakshmi, the exo half-formed from the now-needless Maya Sundaresh. As all of us know, Lakshmi (well, Lakshmi-2, as she had been wiped as soon as, it appears) would gallop on to open up the Future War Cult sooner than going off the deep pause and nearly letting the Vex take over The Final Metropolis sooner than dying. It’s unclear what Maya memories of Neomuna and The Veil also can have survived, consciously or unconsciously within her, presumably driving her to lots of these actions.
Final week, Bungie ran a TWAB phase all about Veil Containment, an interview with the narrative crew explaining its significance. I came upon myself mildly irritated they merely mentioned how hidden it used to be in passing, when that is legitimately a pair of of more than likely the greatest work I’ve seen them script. They want to have the records on how many contributors are of direction hearing these items, and it’s halt to no one. To even salvage to the place we are perfect now, it might per chance per chance truly per chance be significant to:
1) Beat your whole Neomuna campaign
2) Beat the be aware-up Deterministic Chaos odd mission
3) Beat the first Veil Containment mission which didn’t originate until this season
4) Realize that there’s a brand unusual message each and per week in a node that doesn’t flash hidden off the nook of the Neptune scheme
5) Listen to almost three months’ value of lore entries to achieve the one we bought nowadays
On condition that I learn that the amount of of us even getting past step 3 is between 1-4% of active avid gamers, it’s a of direction improbable percentage of the playerbase who can also no longer ever hear these items, which comprises a pair of of the largest yarn finds of the closing three hundred and sixty five days no longer lower than, and with out a doubt more indispensable than moderately actually anything else we realized in the Lightfall campaign itself. Here is driving me crazy.
