Destiny 2 seems to be pushing all the right buttons, bringing plenty of new features that the original game lacked. One of the biggest is Clan support, finally eliminating the need for keeping track of everything outside of the game or through the Bungie.net browser.
The Clans function in Destiny 2 will allow “in-game rosters, tools you need to build your fire teams, and custom banners to help you shape your shared identities,” Destiny 2's Social Lead M.E. Chung said during today's Twitch stream, adding that rewards will be available and progression would be tracked.
Also built in to the sequel will be Destiny 2's version of matchmaking called Guided Games. This allows solo players to join fireteams seeking an extra or two to finish tough missions like raids. “You can open up your party to new players who are looking to play with you,” Chung said. It will also work well for new players trying to get help from more experienced players familiar with the Destiny universe and the FPS style of play.
These two features are important additions to the series, given that it is something players have been asking for since the original game launched back in 2014. Now players will have access to it when Destiny 2 launches three years later on September 8.

This better be a sequel that doesn't start off with less than the previous game had at its end. I find it disappointing when games go back to square one with features they pioneer in the previous.
