Destiny 2 Will Not have Grimoire Cards
If you played the original Destiny, you will be all too familiar with grimoire cards. They were the games way of giving the player information about the story, and lore from the Destiny universe. The main problem with this system was that it could only be accessed from an outside device which cut a lot of players off from the story.
The news today from Bungie is that Destiny 2 will no feature the cards. Lead world designer Steve Cotton said in an interview with Forbes
We want people to be able to find the lore. All the story is told through the Adventures, it’s told through the characters in the world, it’s told through the campaign and it’s told through scannables you find throughout the world.
This doesn’t mean we won’t see any other form of lore sources from Destiny 2 though. You just have to look at the likes of Overwatch and how they release short animated clips for backstories on their heroes, and I would expect something like this to also come to Destiny 2.
