Get Destiny 2 nowGone are the days when Bungie would put out teases and trailers for its expansions, apparently. Last night, it practically stealth-announced Destiny 2’s next big thing in the middle of a roadmap. “On May 8, with the beginning of Season Three, we’re also launching the second expansion to Destiny 2,” Bungie says. “It’s called Warmind, and it will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies. You’ll earn new loot and master new activities. Today, we’re naming it and dating it. You’ll learn more in a reveal stream on April 24.” The rest of the announcement is similarly low-key. Warmind will bring private matches, more vault space, and multiple weapons changes, followed by a summer update with a new seasonal event, bounties, and guild chat on PC, and then season four in September. “Season Three marks the beginning of a new plan for how we deliver Crucible content. For every player of … [Read more...] about Destiny 2’s second expansion, Warmind, launches May 8, or whatever
Destiny 2 expansion is just around the corner according to Bungie's revised development roadmap. The Warmind expansion will go live on May 8th and will introduce new heroes, new battle enemies, and new activities where players will get the chance to earn new loot. May 8th will also mark the start of Season 3. Season3 will feature new Warmind-themed Crucible maps, new Arenas, and private matches. “For every player of Destiny 2, we’ll be releasing all of the new Crucible Maps being developed for Warmind into matchmaking. The same goes for the maps we released with Curse of Osiris,” says Bungie. “To keep the community in the Crucible unified, everyone will see new arenas in matchmade playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, Iron Banner, as well as the new weekly rotators that include Rumble and Mayhem. That means more opponents for everyone.” Check out the revised development roadmap below.

Last night was the beginning of the Destiny 2 PC beta for those of us who have already preordered the game. I am one of those weirdos that loves Destiny so much that I plan on playing it on multiple platforms. With Destiny year 2 and beyond I played it actively on both the PS4 and Xbox One… and going forward I am planning on doing the same and splitting time between PC and PS4. One of the things you need to realize is that I have some strange habits when it comes to gaming. I split my time between my gaming desktop upstairs and my gaming laptop in the living room. I’ve found the secret to marital happiness as a gamer is to be able to be flexible in my gaming habits and there are nights when I just need to be more available than cloistered in my office with my ear cans on. As a result I have two systems to worry about being able to play Destiny on. The positive is however as someone who potentially might be interested in Destiny 2, … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 PC Beta Thoughts
Even though I am playing playing much of it this very moment… Destiny holds an extremely special place in my heart. I love this game and I love what it has become over the course of the two expansions… and multiple content patches. They promised a setting as deep and rich and Star Wars, and while a lot of people will disagree with me… I feel that they ultimately delivered on that. The problem however is that they did not deliver in a contiguous story that was easy to learn. Instead they sprinkled the game with environmental storytelling and nuggets of information that the faithful had to gather up and piece together to learn what was happening in the world. Personally this made me want to know more about the world because each time I uncovered a truth it was like discovering another piece that fit into a giant puzzle I was trying to assemble in my head. For many others however… including the vast majority of my … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 Hopes
Just in case it’s inexplicably less clear than a Waterford bed-pan I should commence by explaining that I was going to title this post “It is your Destiny!”, but then thought that using an obscure line from a scarcely-known franchise might be terribly confusing, and instead left it to the reader to reverse-engineer that opening based on a shoe shop. It is, of course, well established that the funniest jokes are those lifted from other sources with random words changed then explained at length, so: you’re welcome. I missed out on the original Destiny, not having a console, mostly seeing references to it in comparison to The Division, which I enjoyed for a fair while before it bogged down in endgame grind. I had a quick go at the open beta of Destiny 2, to check my now slightly aged system could cope with it, and it all seemed rather fun so I jumped in at launch and have been playing pretty steadily for the last couple of months. At its core, the first-person … [Read more...] about Oh sir, I’ve confused you. It’s not my Destiny, it’s everybody’s Destiny! As much my Destiny as your Destiny, or, dare I say it, and I think I dare, Graham Gooch’s Destiny.
