Destiny gets a lot of flak for having a crap story, and that's fair to some extent. What we get in the game is a disjointed, poorly paced plot that serves up more questions than it does answers, but to say that the actual underlying narrative deserves nothing but hate is a little unfair. Destiny has plenty of interesting ideas at its core - it's just that we barely get to see them in action. At least, not in the actual game.

Destiny's intriguing lore has always been attached to Grimoire cards - unlockable chunks of writing that exist only on the title's official website. If you want to know exactly what's going on in Destiny, you need to head over there and do some reading, which isn't exactly ideal.

Fortunately, Destiny 2 will be doing away with those blasted Grimoire cards. According to Steve Cotton of developer Bungie, all lore will be accessible in the game, with the new 'Adventure' missions giving you insight into the world and history of Destiny. Definitely sounds like a step in the right direction to us.

Will you miss having to read Grimoire cards just to get some simple answers? Make some notes in the comments section below.
