Curious to see the Destiny drop the collectible “cards” in the game for storytelling through building additional explorable virtual space where players can experience lore for themselves instead of reading about it. The “lore” in a game is backstory that defines the possibilities of the game — what we have identified as “narrative” at the DNA. It’s the expectations, values, and assumptions that underlie the experience of a story. For instance, lore could eliminate the possibility that a certain troll could appear, because that troll is part of the game-story’s history and not a contemporary figure. Of course, if the game universe is magical, Trolls might reanimate, too.
In an interview with Forbes Steve Cotton, Destiny 2’s World Lead, was asked whether or not Grimoire Cards—in-game items that could be redeemed on the Destiny website or smartphone app for texts of story and lore—would be making a comeback in the sequel.
