Bungie showed off the Shield Brothers strike from The Taken King (opens in new tab) today as it pushes toward the Destiny expansion's September 15 release date. Bungie wants strikes to be more meaningful and engaging in year two of Destiny (opens in new tab), and to that end it’s mixing up how you experience them.
First, no two strike runthroughs are guaranteed to be the same; dialogue, enemy spawn locations and enemy types will change each time you load up and roll out. Second, Bungie wants to give strike bosses more personality in the way they behave. "We don't want them to just be a poopy bag of hit points," said James Tsai, lead designer of strikes. Third, strike bosses will drop loot unique to them, so some gear will only be acquirable through completing The Taken King's strikes.
