Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s new intro for newbies sounds good, as does reducing armour mod faff

While Destiny 2 welcomed a whole lot of new players when it went free-to-play last October, it didn't do much more than open the door and gesture broadly in the direction of a 100-person party raging across every room of the house. New players are dropped in at the deep end, and it's not fun. So it's good to hear more of Bungie's 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’s Grandmaster Nightfall is a fun challenge this week and paying double rewards

If you're short on upgrade materials in Destiny 2, you fancy building a stockpile ahead of the new expansion, or you just enjoy a challenge, this week has a fun opportunity to farm for huge rewards. The Lake Of Shadows mission is giving double rewards in Nightfall: The Ordeal mode until Tuesday, and I recommend having a go on a high difficult level. Lake cranked…

Hunters are Destiny’s most popular class, but by less than I’d guess

Bungie this week confirmed something everyone basically already knew: Destiny has more Hunters than any other class. 38% of Guardians are Hunters and I mean, of course, we're the best. Bungie blasted this stat among others in celebration of Destiny's sixth birthday yesterday, which I suppose we can still mark on PC even if the first game never came over. Honestly, I'm a little surprised…

Destiny 2’s city in the sky is wasted on the Solstice event

This is the final weekend of Destiny 2's Solstice Of Heroes, an annual summer event which celebrates how great we are by levitating a slice of city into the sky to host a special event mode. This European Aerial Zone is a fantastic level, full of pathways bouncing across rooftops and burrowing deep into labyrinthine buildings - a type of space we don't see much…

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 will have a lot less to do when the Destiny Content Vault is locked in November

Armageddon is coming to Destiny 2. While the MMOFPS's story is playing up potential doom with giant alien pyramids hanging over planets, a whole lot of the game will very definitely be removed when the next expansion launches in November. Bungie will launch the Destiny Content Vault, a scheme to swap old locations, raids, maps, and modes in and out so the game doesn't get…

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 has hunted down those pesky Beaver errors

If you've been plagued by 'Beaver' errors gnawing at your connection in Destiny 2, good news: the bug behind the recent Beaver plague has been fixed. Turns out, something was wonky with Valve's network setup, which they've now fixed. Beaver disconnections should now be a lot rarer, especially in the central and eastern USA. I casually say "something was wonky with Valve's network setup" but…

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,…

Our 15 favourite PC games of 2020 so far

Halloo, gentle reader. Since we're half way through the entire year of 2020 (yet somehow it is also still March?), we decided to run down, lasso and tie up some of our favourite games from the last six months, and force them into a nice list for you. 2020 still has plenty of new PC games to come, of course, but these are the ones…

Destiny 2’s weird new gun turns enemies into orbs you can slam dunk on their mates

As we grapple to understand Destiny 2's looming spacepyramid threat, this week the enigmatic forces extended an olive branch in the form of a gun which... turns its victims into orbs you can pick up and dunk on their mates to murder them too? And this is to help us understand them? Great. We'll be having coffee mornings any day now, then. The new quest…

Destiny 2 is feeling real apocalyptic right now, and it’s great

After dragging its heels for a fair while, the 'living world' of Destiny 2 has really come alive again as Bungie start building to the next expansion. Four of its planets and moons will be removed from the game when Beyond Light hits, and the ongoing in-game events behind that are starting to get well doomy. As of last night, the vast and ominous pyramid…

Destiny 2 starts Moments Of Triumph event, opening raids for farming

Ahead of Destiny 2 shuffling five raids out of rotation next season, Bungie have relaxed restrictions on loot so you can fully rinse them before they go. Usually each character can only get drops from each raid once per week, but for the rest of the season these five can be repeated over and over for loot galore. This comes as part of the latest…

Destiny 2’s Xur is worth visiting again now he has better rolls

Every weekend, mysterious tentacle-faced merchant Xur pops up in a corner of Destiny 2 selling a selection of Exotic gear. For the past eight months, his stock has been a bit rubbish. He's sold fixed armour rolls with bad stats, see, which are useful if you don't have the item at all but worse than any random drop. Good news: Xur has started selling armour…

Destiny 2 has removed skill-based matchmaking for most PvP modes

Bungie have now removed skill-based matchmaking from most of Destiny 2's PvP Crucible playlists, by popular demand. What kind of a pubstomping monster wouldn't want matchmaking to factor in skill? Ah, it's a tricky issue. SBMM has become a semi-controversial topic in multiplayer games, and in Destiny specifically its knock-on consequences have included longer waits for matches and some real laggy laggers lagging up the…

Destiny 2’s new Exotic is mysteriously one-shotting bosses

The Season Of Arrivals started in Destiny 2 this week and while the whole season was kept a surprise up until launch, one arrival is a bigger surprise than the rest. Witherhoard, the new Exotic grenade launcher you can grab from the season pass track, will sometimes mysteriously spit enough damage to melt a boss. Most, if not all, of a raid boss's health bar…
