If there’s a general consensus on the Destiny 2 beta, it’s this: Player vs. Player (PvP) makes you feel great; Player vs. Environment (PvE) makes you feel underpowered. Bungie is hearing all of those complaints. The studio says to expect changes when the game launches for real in September.
Ever since the Vault of Glass raid, Bungie has reserved its right to torture players with platforming puzzles that are a lot harder than they look.
We’re just two-and-a-half months away from Destiny 2, a video game that I cannot wait to play obsessively and complain about even more obsessively. But what will I get to bring over from the first game? Emblems, as it turns out. Among other surprises.
When I played Destiny 2 last month, the most striking difference wasn’t anything about the game itself. It was how it felt to play it on PC.
If you’ve played a lot of Destiny, you know that connectivity issues can be a real bummer. Many of the worst issues are thought to arise from Destiny’s decentralized server arrangement, which leapfrogs partial hosting duties between different players’ consoles. For Destiny 2, Bungie says they’re changing things up.
Bungie is constantly changing and improving Destiny, though rarely in the precise ways players have requested. That seems like it will hold true for Destiny 2.
Did you really think we would let this week go by without a special bonus episode of Destiny fancast Kotaku Splitscreen?
Destiny 2 is coming to PC, and as you may expect, this version will give you far more of those sweet, sweet frames than the PS4 and Xbox One versions. It’ll also run on Blizzard’s Battle.net rather than Steam or another PC distribution service, which is an interesting choice.
Today at an event in Los Angeles, Bungie gave us our first look at Destiny 2, a video game about the crazy antics of Peter Dinklage. It’ll be out on September 8 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
It is time, finally, for us to get a proper look at Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space, talking about how much more they liked Destiny 1.
We’re rapidly approaching the end of Destiny, a video game in which players must travel through space, finding dumb ways to entertain themselves. And now a team of raiders has done the dumbest, most impressive thing yet: beating every raid boss, challenge modes activated, without firing a single gun. Oh, and nobody…
In 2008, a fan with the username OTfor2 issued a challenge to a forum: in Halo 3's Sierra 117 level, get inside a barred-off room. For years, Halo fans tried to nail the stunt, but nobody could complete it...until now.
Don’t forget that a game studio is only as good as the people who work there. “Bungie” means something different today than it did in 2004. Here’s an insightful, well-researched post by Redditor Forestl showing how many of the people who made Halo 2 are still at the iconic studio and how many have left (lots).
Destiny, a three-year pre-order bonus for Destiny 2, is pretty open about its intentions these days. Above is the screen you’ll get when you log into Bungie’s space shooter, which is currently in the midst of an event called Age of Triumph that celebrates Destiny’s best moments.
Over the last two and a half years, I’ve played more than 1,000 hours of Destiny. Over the last five months, I’ve barely played any. This week I returned to the game, and let me tell you, it is no small feat to climb back into a game you used to play obsessively.
The Destiny 2 marketing campaign is now in full force, and with it comes this teaser trailer, featuring everyone’s favorite rogue Cayde-6 hanging out in a bar as the Last City burns around him. (This is a fun one.)
First leaked last week via poster, here it is: Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space, reminiscing about Destiny 1. It’ll be out this September.
As has become an annual Bungie tradition, a retailer has leaked info on the next big Destiny release. It’s not much, but here’s your first look at the marketing materials for Destiny 2, a video game that we will no doubt come up with all sorts of pithy ways to describe over the next few years.
