Destiny 2’s Altars Of Sorrow understands sometimes you’re an idiot who wants to spawncamp moonmonsters until it rains candy

Along with a new dungeon and Halloween event, yesterday's Destiny 2 update slipped in a surprise new open-world public activity on the Moon, named Altars Of Sorrow. It is a beautiful demonstration of how, sometimes, the saviours of humanity are so drunk on loot they'll idly blindfire into an enemy spawn point until the ground glitters with goodies. This is how Altars Of Sorrow goes.…

I am partially sorry for interrupting Destiny raids to take screenshots of this magnificent spacegarden

Dear fireteam, Last night we finished Destiny 2: Shadowkeep's Garden Of Salvation raid for the seventh time, and once again I held everyone up while I paused to take screenshots. I am sorry. Ish. Sorry-ish. As I told you when I paused beneath the vast paddlewheels churning up canals of liquid consciousness to take snaps of a cherry tree, it was definitely necessary for work.…

Destiny dancers pull serious lunar shapes in a new music video

Back when Destiny was only on consoles, I knew three things about it: random words are turned into grandiose proper nouns; a wizard came from the moon; and the spacemen love to dance. Now Destiny 2 has come to PC and won me over, I can say yes, I was entirely correct. I am delighted to see a new musical extravaganza from Husky Raid, a…

Destiny 2’s Season Of The Undying now giving time-travelling robots a kicking

Following the Shadowkeep expansion and free-to-play New Light edition launching on Tuesday, Destiny 2 properly kicked off its next season of live content with a new raid and a less-serious new cooperative mode on Saturday. Season Of The Undying is about those naughty milk-filled robots, the Vex and their vexatious plans. Swarms of them are now invading the Moon in fun public events, we take…

I adore Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s spooky moon guns

Moon's haunted, you've likely heard, and in Destiny 2's Shadowkeep expansion we're sent to bust those ghosts. I adore the tools we wield to do that. A new set of Shadowkeep weapons salvages chunky vintage lunar hardware from the golden age of humanity and purifies it with magic rituals, leaving weapons bristling with magical talismans. These are the guns I need to pop phantoms and…

Destiny 2 dusts off servers after crashing into Moon

Though Destiny 2: Shadowkeep was the first time I'd been playing an MMO around expansion launch time, I knew what to expect last night: surprise; spectacle; excitement; confusion; discovery; server queues; connection troubles; servers going offline; waiting until the next day to play. Reader dear, it delivered on all counts. Following a string of disconnections, sign-in problems, and other datapipe wonk, Bungie took their MMOFPS…

Pack your bags, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is shooting for the moon in a new launch trailer

Here, whatever happened to that wizard? The one wot came from the moon? Has anyone checked in on them, are they doing okay? Is the Shadowkeep their house? It's an awfully nice house, that. I think it's time we paid the wizard a visit. Mind, you never know with these space rascals, so I think I'll pack a heavier kit this time around. Y'know, just…

If you played Destiny 2 through the Forsaken expansion but didn't buy the Annual Pass after that, good news: you can new play all of the Pass's modes, raids, quests, and that for free. With an update last night, Bungie set the Annual Pass content free for all Forsaken owners. There's some good stuff in there. That can more than occupy you for the next…

I’m all about Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s cursed lunar looks

Imagine: you're invited to the Met Gala and the theme is 'Haunted Moon'. You know Rihanna will be a stunning spectacle. You concede you cannot beat Celine Dion's glimmer or gags. You assume Marilyn Manson will do some gory 'Le Voyage Dans La Lune' lark with a model rocket stuck in his oozing eye. It's a given that Kanye West will flout convention and wear…

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and New Light have been delayed into October

Destiny 2's gearing up for a big year. A huge year, really. Maybe the biggest one it's had to date. But that year of bigness will now start a little later, because Bungie are delaying Destiny 2's free-to-play relaunch, New Light, and its next expansion, Shadowkeep. Previously due on September 17th, they're now both lined up for October 1st. Bungie say they wanted a touch…
