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…

Bring back Destiny 2’s big boss bug

Good bugs are more funny than irritating; the best bugs reveal beautiful possibilities. After Crusader Kings II players found a way to rule Europe with a dynasty of horses, Paradox eventually made animal kingdoms a feature. Civilization has embraced the bug which made Mahatma "An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind" Gandhi deploy a nuclear arsenal. Movement bugs like strafejumping in…

Destiny 2’s Black Armory is open for business

A surly robot has opened her arms company's doors to Destiny 2 players with the launch of Black Armory, the first paid DLC of Destiny 2's second year. While the FPS's first year of DLC introduced new story campaigns, developers Bungie are now focusing more on activities. Ada-1 will send us out to collect weapon components and data (i.e. shoot things) then forge powerful new…

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 free for keepsies if you grab it now

Activision are giving Destiny 2 away for free right now, yours to keep if you grab it before November 18th. This is the base edition of Bungie's multiplayer looter-shooter, not including its expansions, but that's still a huge hunk of game. And I suppose handy as a demo to see if you want to keep up to speed by buying the DLC. I never played…

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…

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…

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.

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…
