For the past week, Destiny fans have been furiously posting to message boards and making Reddit threads, venting, posting theories, and working out how best to focus their anger. They’ve been doing that for months, of course, but what’s different now is that they’re mad because the developers at Bungie want them to…
Tim Rogers is back with another E3 2018 booth tour. This time he’s got Activision in his sights. How plush is the carpet? What’s the funniest way to truncate Call of Duty? Did Activision deliver this year?
All those questions and many more are answered in the video above. Join us, gamers.
The new trailer for Destiny 2: Forsaken hints at a shocking story twist, but at least one player saw the whole thing coming days ago.
One of the highlights of Destiny 2's upcoming fall expansion is Gambit, a competitive PvE and PvP mode that asks two teams of four players to fight each other in a very different fashion. I played a few rounds of Gambit at an Activision event in Los Angeles and am pleased to say that it’s very, very good.
This week, Destiny 2’s semi-regular Faction Rally event has returned with a lot of changes. Those changes are all for the better, particularly if you want to spend hours chasing hard-to-get rewards.
The next expansion to Destiny 2 is Forsaken, out September 4 and bringing a bunch of stuff to Bungie’s space shooter, including a wild new mode and an overhaul of how weapons work.
Bungie has been quietly working on a non-Destiny new game for some time now, and today the studio acknowledged it for the first time, announcing a partnership with Chinese publisher NetEase that will raise them $100 million.
Bungie has detailed how Destiny 2 Faction Rallies are changing for next week’s season 3 debut. There’s a new “Renown” system that increases difficulty and rewards as long as you go without dying, which sounds neat. They’re also lowering the difficulty on waves 4-7 of Escalation Protocol, which, good.
Destiny 2’s new Warmind expansion is equal parts promising and frustrating, a step in the right direction that has also served to underline some of the game’s biggest problems. Case in point: Escalation Protocol, a new mode that’s frustrating players not because it isn’t fun, but because it’s almost impossible to…
I love the feeling of getting back into Destiny. No matter how long I’m away, picking it back up again is like slipping my hand into a well-worn baseball glove. After hundreds of hours exploring planets and killing everything in sight, things like the light double-click of the jump button to glide while sprinting as…
Have you met Thaviks, The Depraved? He’s a jerk. If you’ve ever finished Destiny 2’s Exodus Crash strike, you’ve fought him, and probably hated him.
After playing through Destiny 2’s campaign and conquering the player versus player gauntlet Trials of the Nine, I thought I was done with the game. The release of the Warmind DLC has given me a reason to return, and I’m finding it incredibly awkward to be a powerful Guardian who doesn’t remember game basics like how…
A brand new Destiny 2 puzzle, discovered this week by players and solved early this morning, led not to an exotic weapon or a secret quest, but a real-life treasure cache in upstate New York, containing gold coins and a spear based on Warmind’s Valkyrie.
Destiny 2’s Warmind expansion introduces a new explorable area on Mars. Like the game’s other patrol areas on Earth, Io, Nessus and Titan, the Mars map initially seems to simply be an area with some public events and some hidden chests. It’s actually a lot more interesting.
There may be a complicated puzzle hidden inside Destiny 2's newest expansion, Warmind. Or maybe excited fans just want there to be. Either way, it’s been fun to watch.
On Tuesday, Bungie released Warmind, the newest expansion to Destiny, a video game in which you travel through space, [Sorry, the rest of this paragraph is PlayStation exclusive].
This week, Destiny 2 got its second major expansion since it came out last September. It’s called Warmind, and in many respects, it’s a disappointment. However, it benefits from the many small changes Bungie is making to the game more broadly, and succeeds in setting up a long, demanding grind that could keep some…
It is still too early for me to say whether or not Destiny 2’s new Warmind is the breath of fresh Martian air that the game so desperately needs. But I can confidently report that the Graviton Lance pulse rifle is now really fun to use.
