Destiny’s premier dance troupe stage a Christmas spectacular

I don't want a lot for Christmas, but I certainly am glad to receive the gift of a new Destiny dance performance from Husky Raid. This group of players have thrilled and delighted with hot moves and clever staging in their "Saw something weird..." machinima videos for five years, and their latest weird encounter is fittingly festive. Come, pour yourself a steaming mug of egg…

Destiny 2’s raid race was delightfully brutal

The best time to play a Destiny raid is as soon as it launches. Before the puzzles are solved, the bosses cheesed, the builds optimised, and the surprises spoiled, get in and discover it for yourself. Raids are extra brutal at launch because the first 24 hours are under a special 'Contest Mode' making enemies so much tougher while players race for the world's first…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s first raid, Deep Stone Crypt, has opened

Along with a half-dozen planets and countless weapons and armour, Destiny 2: Beyond Light made us say goodbye to the game's existing raids - so it's about time it added a new one of its own. Thee Deep Stone Crypt opens its doors today, letting you put all that hard-earned Europan gear to the test in the expansion's first real endgame challenge. Or, alternatively, get…

Destiny warlocks are rudely one-shotting bosses with the power of darkness

Destiny 2: Beyond Light finally lets our Guardians touch the darkness. But perhaps it shouldn't have, because it's gone and corrupted the game's space wizards with the power to completely break any encounter Bungie throws at them. Ahead of the expansion's first raid opening later this month, Warlocks have figured out how to use their stasis powers to instantly evaporate Destiny's deadliest baddies.

Destiny 2’s Trials Of Osiris are on hold for two weeks

So, you've just beaten Destiny 2: Beyond light, powered up your Guardian with the slickest gear, and feel ready to take on the world in high-stakes wizard PVP. Well, I hate to break it to you, but you'll just have to wait a few more weeks. Due to an unidentified issue, Bungie have benched Destiny 2's Trials of Osiris for the next two weeks, bringing…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light feels like someone else’s school reunion

In the run-up to yesterday's launch of Destiny 2: Beyond Light, many players were excited for the return of familiar people and places. Will Randal the Vandal be up to his old tricks? Will the Exo Stranger say what she said six years ago? But Destiny 1 wasn't on PC so I didn't play it, and I feel like I've turned up to someone else's…

Destiny 2’s pre-expansion live event might have been nice if I could see it, idk

After a short goodbye event live in-game last night, Bungie have shut down Destiny 2's servers to roll out the new expansion, Beyond Light. The event was only small, just a little flourish as Darkness closed around the solar system and locked off several areas for the foreseeable future. I think. But it seemed nice. From what I've seen. I wouldn't know myself because I,…

Destiny 2’s ramen lovers want Bungie to immortalise their favourite dish

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is almost here - and when it does, it's throwing a whole lotta junk out of players' inventories. Schematics, treasure maps, and even Expired Ramen Coupons are all on the chopping block, but it's the last of those three that's got some guardians all riled up. While I'm not even sure if Destiny's gun-wizards can eat, there's an apparent sentimental value…

Destiny fashionistas, it’s safe to stop hoarding looks for transmog

Fashionistas of The Last City, you may breath a sigh of relief and begin clearing out your wardrobe: Bungie have confirmed that Destiny 2's upcoming transmogrification won't require us to hold the original item. The workings of the transmog system are still largely unknown but game director Luke Smith did say last night that yes, if we want to duplicate a garment's look and apply…

Destiny 2’s next season brings back Uldren Sov as an ally, and I feel hope for its future

The man who killed our pal Cayde-6 will return to Destiny 2 with Season Of The Hunt, Bungie revealed today. Well, the Guardian reanimated from the corpse of the man who killed Cayde will. It's complicated. Spacemagic. With the Beyond Light expansion now two weeks away, Bungie today released a new video documentary gabbing about its development and laying out more of their plans for…

A chainsword, a gun firing bullets from another timeline, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s other new Exotics

We should have been playing Destiny 2: Beyond Light by now, but while the expansion's delayed to November we can at least gawp at some of its gear and imagine how cool it might be to use. The answer is: quite cool. Bungie today detailed the new Exotic-quality weapons and armour coming in Beyond Light, and some sound powerful, some sound like they'll open up…

You’ll need to download Destiny 2 again for Beyond Light, to save space

This was to be the week Bungie launched Destiny 2: Beyond Light but, like everything else this year, the expansion ended up delayed. This week has at least brought news about installing Beyond Light come November, both good and bad. Good news: thanks to some revamped technoguts, the game should take up less drive space and Bungie should be able to patch any urgent problems…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s Stasis powers seem a smashing good time

Bungie today revealed more of the new elemental powers we will get to wield in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Stasis (it's ice). Thanks to us getting chummy with the forces of Darkness, every class will get a new Stasis subclass in the expansion, with brand new abilities. Yup, some chill. Sure, some freeze. And oh heck yes, some shatter.

Please Destiny, explain how transmogrification will work or give me more vault space for fashion

During Destiny 2's next content year, Bungie plan to add a transmogrification system, finally letting us apply the looks of stylish armour to the stats of practical armour. As an avowed Destiny fashionista, I am excited. But because Bungie haven't revealed how this will work in the MMOFPS, I've started stockpiling fashion just in case we need to feed the system original garments. I am…

Destiny 2’s Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off next week, bringing some delightfully glowy armour

If there's one thing I miss about Destiny 2, it's the armour. I'm a firm supporter of the whole "you can't save the world if you don't look good" thing. What I do not miss about this game, however, is how much you have to grind to look that good in the first place. Destiny 2's Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off on August 11th,…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s icy new Stasis powers look great fun

While I'm still not convinced that getting pally with the forces of Darkness in Destiny 2 won't cause a second collapse of human civilisation, it does look great fun. A new trailer for the Beyond Light expansion shows some of the 'Stasis' abilities we'll somehow get from those presumed wrong'uns, and I was expecting to freeze enemies but I was not expecting to erect ice…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been pushed back to November

The Darkness might be an intimidating mass of deadly triangles, but Destiny 2 has more grounded concerns to worry about right now. As Bungie continue to wrestle with life under the Covid-19 pandemic, they've postponed the release of the game's next big expansion to give themselves more breathing room. Destiny 2: Beyond Light will now release just under two months after its planned September release,…

Destiny 2’s new season seems more promising so far

Amid the megablast of news about Destiny's future yesterday, Bungie started the latest season, the Season Of Arrivals. After nine rocky months of decreasingly good seasons in Destiny 2, Season 11 feels like Bungie are starting to turn a corner. I don't know how I'll feel about Arrivals in two months, but right now I'm pretty excited about a lot of its newness. Not just…

Destiny 2 announces next three expansions, and plans to revive old D1 content

Today they also start the next season, named Season Of Arrivals, and launch a new dungeon. Looking into the far future, they've a further announced two expansions for 2021 and 2022.
