Destiny 2’s new expansion, Forsaken, turns the game into something that people can play as much as they want without running out of things to do. If anything, its tantalizing new pursuits, designed to satisfy the appetites of the series’ most voracious players, may be too life-consuming.
It turns out one of Destiny 2: Forsaken’s most annoying new weapon is bugged after all.

After 18 hours and 48 minutes of playing, a Destiny 2 team named Clan Redeem were the first players in the world to finish the game’s Last Wish raid that released yesterday. When they defeated the raid boss, some new changes appeared in the game for every other player of Destiny 2.

Here we go—Destiny 2's Forsaken is now live, and I’m returning to the game for the first time in nearly a year. Or, as the kids like to call it, I’m “back on my bullshit.” We’ll have plenty of coverage on all the new stuff in the coming days.
