Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC is a bit of a mess, but provided you haven't been put off by Windows 10's hazy support for it or the astronomical prices of the best gaming monitors for HDR, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get a graphics card that actually supports it. Below, you'll find a complete list of all the Nvidia and AMD…

How Destiny 2 works

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the difficult journeys they’ve taken to make their games. This time, Destiny 2 [official site]. When you go down to Destiny 2’s European Dead Zone, you’ll blast your way through crowds of the Fallen and run past other players. Perhaps you’ll also have a friend by your side as you stumble across Public Events…

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…

Destiny 2’s real life loot drop reveals Warmind secrets

The Warmind expansion has been out for a few days now, and while the DLC for Destiny 2 is light on missions, it is big on hidden surprises. A few intrepid explorers have been cracking the codes to locate a real world loot drop. And it was just located. After lots of decoding, users on the Reddit's Raid Secrets board found a drop at Sleeping…

Destiny 2: Warmind unleashes frozen Hive on Mars today

It's Destiny expansion day! Destiny 2: Warmind, or more accurately 'Destiny 2: Zombies but cold and on Mars', comes out at 7pm BST today. It's about heading to the red planet to stop the Hive from destroying a big old supercomputer, except Mars is all icy and the computer's broken anyway. This is Destiny, so it's also about collecting shiny guns which you can use…

Warmind, Destiny 2’s next DLC, involves aggressive debugging

Bungie have finally unveiled the second expansion for their MMO-lite FPS Destiny 2. In Warmind, players are headed to Mars to meet up with a new cutscene-featured heroine named Ana Bray (see her in the fancy trailer within), and help her get an old computer back in working order. With guns. There may also be ancient undead transdimensional insect-people involved, so pack a can of…

Warmind is Destiny 2’s second expansion, out May 8th

I keep saying I'll return to Destiny 2 in posts like this one, then reneging on that. For realsies though, this time I will: Bungie have let loose the name and date for the second expansion. It's called Warmind, and you can start shooting at it on May 8th. Those are the only details we're getting for now, though in non-expansion related news Bungie have…

Destiny 2 ‘Go Fast’ update speeds things up today

It brings a broad spread of changes aimed at making the game faster and making players feel more powerful, including increasing movement speed, reducing respawn times, and buffing weapons.

Bungie outline 2018 plans to salve Destiny 2’s wounds

It feels like public opinion on Destiny 2 plunged headlong off a cliff in the final two months of 2017. While fundamentally solid, the loot-heavy FPS's brief first expansion left many dissatisfied, and controversies over XP-throttling and Bungie's seeming obsession with pushing loot crates as the primary means of character customization left many with less-than-kind things to say about the game. In an attempt to…

Feature: It's good to talk. Sometimes.

The Joy of not talking to other people in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 has had a rough time of late, what with players discovering that late-game grinding may very well be a gigantic waste of time, and the general hostility to microtransactions going around these days. Since its launch on PC in October, players have also groused about its strict communication rules: there’s no in-game chat lobby, text or voice, in which to find fireteam members…

Podcast: The worst games of the year

We've told you about the most overlooked games and what has us excited for next year, but we haven't had a good grump yet on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. So this week the team discuss the worst games they played in 2017. John thinks the misogyny of House Party puts it firmly in the bin, and Brendan is still wiping the red…

Bungie admit their “plans aren’t working” and address endgame Destiny 2 content lockout

The Curse of Osiris expansion for Destiny 2 is a mixed bag. I enjoyed the two hour campaign and a brief waddle around the piddly new area, but it's a meagre offering for the money you have to put down. It's understandable that some players might want to give it a miss, which makes it all the worse that people who didn't buy the expansion…

Destiny 2’s December plans include Masterwork weapons and an economic overhaul

It's been a tumultuous time for Destiny 2 lately, what with the XP scaling fracas, free trial launch and more. On top of all of that, the first piece of DLC for it - Curse of Osiris - is due for release on December 5th. As the FPS-with-MMO-gubbins officially moves into its second 'season' of content and updates, Bungie decided to skip out on a…

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris trailer shows off new weapons, armour and dance moves

Destiny 2 is about to get Vexier, with the Curse of Osiris expansion landing on December 5th. How are you going to pass the time until then, you ask? Well, you can spend at least 48 seconds of it watching this preview of the new weapons, armour and emotes. Emotes rarely seem like a big deal to me, but I have a soft-spot for those…

Destiny 2 gets an alien-smiting free trial today

Explosive numbers-go-up shooter Destiny 2 is getting a free demo this week, says Bungie. Starting today, the trial will let players begin the story campaign and bullet-hose other gunfolk to death in the multiplayer Crucible. I don’t know how long this will go on for, but probably long enough for you to experience one or both of the following: a) a general sense of excitement…
