It's been exactly four days since Bungie's Destiny 2 live stream on Twitch.  Here's all the news that was confirmed, plus what was revealed in post stream interviews.

DESTINY 2 FACTS
  • Bungie hired Mass Effect writer Christopher Shlerf  to help expand and explain the game's lore in Destiny 2.
  • The game releases on September 8, 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
  • Destiny 1 gear and items will not roll over to the sequel.  However, you can retain your Guardian's appearance.
  • All Crucible PvP matches are 4 -on-4.
  • A new feature called Guided Games will reward experienced players for acting as a sherpa to new gamers that need help on Trials, Raids, Strikes, etc. It seems like Bungie is trying to implement a built-in The100.io of sorts.
  • The PC version of Destiny will be exclusive to Blizzard's  Battle.net so it won't be on Steam.
  • Homecoming is the first mission in Destiny 2 and features a massive Cabal force attacking the last City and sealing away the The Travelers power.
  • Leading the Cabal faction is Dominus Ghaul, a commander who believes The Traveler made a mistake in selecting Earth to receive his "Light".  He and his Red Legion are here to rectify the Traveler's mistake.
  • During the attack on The Last City, the Speaker goes missing.
  • Destiny 2 launches with only one Raid - The Inverted Spire. It will be on a new planet called the Nessus.
  • Four traversable planets will be featured at the start of Destiny 2, Earth (European Dead Zone), Nessu, Titan and Io.
  • Weapons are being reconfigured into three categories, Kinetic, Energy, and Power - each with their own strengths and weaknesses. How this differs from Primary, Special and Heavy is not exactly clear.
  • The in-game clan system becomes more of a focal point, with each clan able to design their very own customizable banner to display their allegiance.
  • Each Destiny 2 Guardian class gets a new form - the Titan Sentinel wields a Captain America-esque void shield, the Warlock Dawnblade wields a sword of flame and the Hunter Arcstrider cracks skulls with an electric bo staff.
  • You can now launch different game modes, quests without going to Orbit.
  • The Destiny 2 Beta will be reserved only for those who pre-order the game.  The launch date of the Beta is unconfirmed but expected to launch this Summer.
  • Destiny 2's Collector's Edition contents:
    • Destiny 2 Base Game

  • Unlike the first Destiny, the sequel will take on more RPG aspects as we learned that "The Last City" wasn't actually the last city and that your Guardian will visit other towns and that each town will have its own set of NPCs who give out quests.
  • The PS4 version of Destiny will receive unspecified exclusive content that won't be available on PC or Xbox One until Fall 2018.
  • Two expansion packs have already been confirmed, with one featuring the Warmind Rasputin and the other involving Osiris (the Speaker's former Apprentice), the namesake of the Trials of Osiris PVP tournament.
