Ewww, Bungie ruined character faces in Destiny 2 with their Beyond Light game update. Faces now look horrible!

The character face models look completely different now with the Beyond Light game update.

Was looking at the patch notes.











I made a feminine Guardian and the patch made her look all butch, the lips are fucked and the eyebrows aren't what they were before.


Seriously fuck you Bungie and your woke ass implementation. You ruined my Guardian's face in Beyond Light.

I'm curious to see what mine look like now. They already didn't do well with the D1->D2 conversion. They need to offer the option to edit appearance even if it is a MTX. Give everyone one free edit per character and charge for subsequent changes. They'd pull in a lot of revenue.

By the way, they changed the gender option from male/tamale to masculine/feminine. Can native speakers tell me if this just two fancier words or it's towards to those identity woke bs?

....I don't understand how you could say such a thing without pictures. I'm genuinely curious.

I never thought the Destiny player model faces looked good from what I saw, especially the female ones. So I don't understand how they could look any worse.

What a shit thread... Just edit your character with the new system, it's not gonna try to translate the previous options to the new stuff by itself...

With how long your helmet stays on during gameplay, no one ain't going to notice.

Three articles, two screen caps of change log texts, one post, and zero examples in any of it of what you're talking about. Terrible thread.

If you want to discuss the changes instead of raging into the void, please include some form of an example of what you're talking about.

Destiny 2 pre patch, notice the long bangs and clipping of hair. More feminine features.



Destiny 2 Beyond Light makes my character more butch.


At least clipping is gone, but not the face I've selected for it and it's not the lightning.

Not happy with Bungie's facial transition with their update. Not the face I selected and customized. It doesn't even feel like my Guardian anymore. :(

I was considering checking out Destiny 2 again since the expansion is on GamePass. Thanks for saving me the trouble, Bungie!

I swear to god it's gonna come down to Japanese games only if this woke bullshit continues.

Op your char fell out of the D2 ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down, but you're a titan main so you get what you deserve.

I don't even see a difference beyond the hair not clipping in the 2nd one.
But then again, I've never given a fuck about what my character looks like beyond maybe some fancy color palette.

I’m not seeing the difference in any of these photos. Maybe if they actually showed a comparison of your characters face, idk.

Posting through imgur as NeoGaf upload images thingy is broken.

Destiny 1/Beta of my Guardian used the exact same selection:






Destiny 2 when it transferred:










Destiny 2 Beyond Light






Cool transformation from female to male :messenger_tears_of_joy: On that beyond light character selection screen "he" looks like Japanese dude

The Destiny 1 screenshots of your character look really good. But it looks fairly bad in all the Destiny 2 screenshots, what the heck? I've never played Destiny but footage of it always looked quite pretty, as far as I remember. What is up with these ugly ass character models. Can't really tell too much of a difference with the Beyond Light update though. The model just looks bad in my opinion, although maybe some screenshots focusing more directly on the face would help the comparison.

In original Destiny 2 also the Human faces were substantially worse than Awoken or exo for obvious reasons.

Just 6 more hours till I can log in to see for myself.
