Destiny 2 starts Season Of Opulence with new co-op mode

Loot-hungry heroes today return to a wacky Emperor's gilded spacehulk as Destiny 2 has just started the third season of its Annual Pass content. The Season Of Opulence brings a new cooperative activity, the Menagerie, as well as a new raid, the Crown of Sorrow. These bring new guns and armour glittering with all the tacky flair that our Emperor pal so adores. The season…

Destiny 2 gets in The Last Word

A revered weapon returned in a big Destiny 2 update last night, the honking great hand cannon of legend, The Last Word. It may be the fancy headline feature, and quietly nudge parts of the story along too, but the update's also notable for a huge number of balance tweaks. Some abilities are toned down, some powered up, and some somehow made even worse, while…

Bungie look towards Destiny’s “bright future” post-Activision

While we still don't know what Bungie plan to do differently with Destiny now they've wrested their MMOFPS series out the clutches out Activision, franchise director Luke Smith has muttered cryptically about seeing "a bright future, with roots in a memorable past."

Destiny 2’s final Black Armory Forge opened early after puzzle stumped players

After what was meant to be an exciting community challenge to solve a puzzle and unlock a new part of Destiny 2 turned into a frustrating grind, Bungie caved and unlocked it last night. All players with the MMO-y FPS's Forsaken expansion and its further season pass can now make weapons in Bergusia Forge, which also brings quests for new toys. The puzzle of Niobe…

Destiny 2’s fourth Black Armory Forge has… not opened for business

The rediscovery and reignition of Destiny 2's fourth and final Black Armory Forge, the climax of the current season of paid content, has stalled because the puzzle to unlock it has players stumped. Bergusia Forge will let players craft new weapons but it'll only be opened once players--any players--solve a long and complex puzzle sequence involving ciphers, runes, invisible ink, translating French quotes, and a…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Overwatch, Destiny 2 and Heroes Of The Storm

They must have been shipping eggnog, mistletoe, tinsel and other festive goodies to the Blizzard store in bulk, as they're kicking off seasonal events in multiple games today. Team FPS Overwatch and crossover MOBA Heroes Of The Storm are getting especially daft for the season, while Bungie are playing it a little more straight in shoot n' looter Destiny 2. Not that they haven't found…

Destiny 2 lays out plan for next nine months of free updates and paid DLC

Bungie kicked off Destiny 2's fifth season last night, heralding the first of the Forsaken expansion's add-on DLC bits next week. The next nine months of the MMO-lite FPS are looking quite different to its last, with none of the upcoming DLC adding new story campaigns as Bungie try to sprinkle new items and modes and events and such across the year. They explained this…

Destiny 2: Forsaken will start including prerequisite expansions for free

Upgrading from plain old Destiny 2 to its latest expansion, Forsaken, is an expensive proposition, requiring players buy the FPS-RPG's first two expansions as well. Thankfully that will change next week, as Bungie have announced Forsaken will start including those two prerequisite expansions. To upgrade, you'll only ("only"!) need to pay the £35 for Forsaken, not an extra £17 for Curse Of Osiris and Warmind…

Has Destiny 2 been improved by its updates?

Humanity is a self-destructive species, and Destiny 2: Forsaken is credible evidence that we’re probably doomed. Fortunately, Forsaken is also the best update possible for Bungie’s MMO-lite shooter, adding fantastic new modes, new weapons, new missions, and new purpose to a game that had fallen flat a few months after launch even amongst its most hardcore fans.So there’s some good news, at least. To understand…

You can start rounding up alien criminals in Destiny 2: Forsaken today

Neither of Destiny 2's previous expansions have set the world aflame, but a wild-west style bounty hunt might just do the trick. Destiny 2: Forsaken is out later today, with a campaign that has you hunting down assorted barons who've been told to go and cause a ruckus by a baddie who's busy fiddling about with the Light. Naughty, that.

The Destiny 2: Forsaken launch trailer has you speak up for the first time

"We want to make Destiny weird again", says Forsaken game director Steve Cotton in a new video dev diary. I want them to make Destiny 2 weird again too, though the trailer for the upcoming Forsaken expansion looks positively mundane. Space wizards leap through the air, four-armed aliens snarl at each other and blue skinned-folk with glowing yellow eyes mutter about the nature of light…

Destiny 2’s Forsaken DLC is a western-style bounty hunt

Trouble out on the frontier. There's been a jailbreak out in The Reef, and some of the orneriest varmints this side of Alpha Centauri are loose and causing a hill o'trouble. This place doesn't need a Guardian - it needs a sheriff. Destiny 2 may have had some troubles this past year, but I gotta admit, I like the idea behind its next expansion, Forsaken. A…
