Destiny 2 Forsaken: The Corrupted Strike
The Title of this video is not hyperbole! I had to rush out a video right away!
Don’t Forget: Like, Subscribe (ring the bell) and comment below with you thoughts. Bungie has crafted, hands down their best strike to date in Destiny.
You must experience the Corrupted Strike in Destiny 2 Forsaken for yourself. I don’t want to spoil anything! Which is why this won’t be a guide or anything like that.
After team Redeem led by xGladd cleared the raid which took them 18 hours and 42 mins according to bungie. Everything changed. The Dreaming City is now corrupted and a bunch of new content and locations have been unlocked. They threw open the flood gates to the darkness and now the ascendant realm is appearing all over the City. New temples can be explored and that is exactly where you are headed in The Corrupted Strike.
Atmosphere and scenery are at their absolute best here giving you a real taste of the Last Wish Raid. If you haven’t ventured deep into the Dreaming City and it’s heart you are in for a real treat, but honestly this is the most fun I’ve had in Destiny in years. Yes this strike is just that good.
There is no commentary in the video and no music purely atmospheric bliss and the shrieks of enemies.
Corruption is everywhere as the name implies but this strike also weaves in raid tier mechanics throughout and will keep you guessing and awe inspired the entire journey.
The final boss encounter is a serious highlight and a watershed moment for Bungie when it comes to the quality and difficulty of their strike roster.
Jumping puzzles, raid mechanics, ensure the most exciting journey as you venture deep into the depths of a corrupted temple to slay an ancient evil atop crumbling ruins.
The verticality here is jaw-dropping. You end up at the deepest depths but yet so high above an abyssal darkness.
This feels like the closest thing to a mini raid. It is smaller than a raid lair but certainly feels larger in depth and scope than any strike we have encountered so far.
There is so much to love about the newest strike addition to Destiny. I really wanted something like this to be revealed in the Dreaming City but I did not expect it to be unlocked for everyone in such spectacular fashion.
I recorded the stream. I saw team Redeem (what a fitting name I might add) and their reactions to these revelations of which they unknowingly had been a part of. This is the biggest reveal in Destiny history. What a time to be a gamer!
If you aren’t sold on Forsaken after experiencing The Corrupted Strike and eventually the raid. I don’t know what to tell you. Destiny is now the game we waited years for and it feels so damn good!
