Weapon system. Together with newly added short- and long-range weapons like, say, the Bow that can fire deadly arrows, the entire weapon arrangement system has been reworked. From now on, players can put their weapon of choice in any slot, no matter what type a shotgun, rifle or launcher is.
Super abilities. Lots brand new supers for each Guardian subclass, that is much more power to unleash for Hunter, Warlock and Titan!
Enemy. Besides the malignant prince Uldren Sov, there is another enemy faction, the Scorn, which will appear on your radars.
