The Darkness vocalises its impending return to Destiny 2

Always acting, but never quite seen. It seems one of Destiny 2's most elusive antagonists is preparing to finally play its hand. Lurking in the shadows of Bungie's space-knight loot shooter, The Darkness have finally put voice to their long-awaited return by broadcasting an ominous hum on the Destiny 2 Twitter account. Whether as another season or as the game's next expansion, it may soon…

Destiny 2 quest for Felwinter’s Lie is fixed, and an easy way to get a great PvP shotgun

After a bumpy journey with daft amounts of grind and a halting bug, Destiny 2's latest quest, The Lie, can be completed. That's the one where our not-so-benevolent AI overlord, Rasputin, wanted us to grind Seraph Towers and shotgun kills. The final step brings a new bit of story, which is quite nice, and a new shotgun you really might want if you play PvP.…

I hope Destiny 2’s Titanic disaster rumours are as fake as they seem

One weirdly persistent Destiny 2 fan theory is that Bungie are planning to fully obliterate and remove one of the MMOFPS's areas, the Saturnian moon of Titan. It'll be a dramatic show of force from the Darkness sweeping through the solar system, so the story goes. There is no real evidence to support this but I've seen some folks start repeating it as a given.…

Destiny 2 capping gear levels doesn’t sound so bad, as long as Bungie reduce grind to get it

One of many changes planned for Destiny 2's next year is a time limit on how long players can keep boosting their gear's level to remain viable. Legendary-rarity weapons and armour will get one year to shine, and then they'll be left to fade away. Bungie say it'll make the game stay fresh over time, get players chasing new loot, and let them make things…

Bungie move the goalposts on Destiny 2’s new communal challenge

Just over a day after setting Destiny 2 players a new communal goal to grind towards, Bungie have made changes so it'll be finished a whole lot sooner. A new quest, named The Lie, starts out with a goal shared between all players: complete the seasonal Seraph Tower event nine million times. Given that most Seraph Tower attempts seem to end in failure, it is…

Destiny 2’s new communal goal for Seraph Towers looks unlikely

As is becoming tradition towards the end of a content season, Destiny 2 has set another big communal goal for players. This time, rather than dump all our leftover seasonal resources into a magic box or whatever, we're being challenged to complete Seraph Towers. A whole lot of Seraph Towers. This seems perhaps for just a cool reward rather than the big season finale, something…

Halo 2: Anniversary is now out on PC

Ian Halo's remastered adventures continue on PC today with the release of Halo 2: Anniversary in the wee hours. Ian and his sexy pet search engine, Cortana, are continuing to get into sci-fi trouble with ringworlds, and this time we also get to play parts from an alien Arbiter's perspective too. Halo 2 has been on PC before, with a wonky port back in the…

Destiny 2 steps up its fashion game with transmog in Year 4

As any good Guardian knows, Destiny 2 isn't just a jargon-filled sci-fi loot 'em up. It's just as much, if not more so, a far-future fashion show. But in a game about constantly trading out new gear, keeping a fresh look has always felt a little contentious. This week, Bungie revealed that Year 4 will introduce a transmog system to help you store your favourite…

Halo 2: Anniversary comes to PC next week

The adventures of Master Chief will continue in Halo 2: Anniversary next Tuesday, May 12th, Microsoft have announced. This time Master Chief (a name I still refuse to believe is real, even as characters say it) and Cortana (a name I still reuse to believe Microsoft reused for their voice-activated searchbot) are joined by a new ally, switching perspectives for part of the story. I'm…

Destiny 2 players are time-travelling through Tower glitches

There's something delightfully in-fiction that, isn't there? A rogue band of Destiny 2's space knights breaking through the physical boundaries of their home to discover an alternate space, unlocked from time? You could've plucked that straight out of the Grimoire. But these Guardians are very much real, a set of curious players who, through a glitch in the Tower's geometry, may have caught a sneaky…

Destiny 2’s seasonal events will soon stick around all year long

What the hell is going on in Destiny 2? Is a question I ask myself pretty much every time I jump back into Bungie's space-wizard adventure. So much has happened since I last played full-time, and worse, so much is locked to the annals of history - seasonal content that'll never return to Destiny 2. But that impermanence may be about to end. To stop…

Destiny 2 having special merch unlocked by in-game accomplishments is neat

As much as I think Destiny 2's Guardian Games is a disappointing grind-o-rama, I must concede that the event's merch is cool. For each of the three classes, Bungie are selling a little supporter's pack with a scarf, a felt pennant, and an enamel pin. I don't buy merch but even I will concede that's pretty neat. Bungie are good at merch in general, and…

Destiny 2’s new event does not have the oomph this season needs

Last night saw the start of the Guardian Games in Destiny 2, a new three-way competition between Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks to, in Bungie's words, "test your skills in a series of daily class challenges" and ultimately "prove that your class reigns supreme". In reality, the competition is just another set of bounties in a game already too focused on bounties. Guardian Games is a…

Destiny 2’s Guardian Games aim to prove, once and for all, which class is best

It's about time we worked out which Destiny 2 class is the good one. Next week, Bungie's space-wizards, stellar warriors and, uh, moon hunters are taking part in the Guardian Games, a limited-time event that has each class battling out for new gear, snazzy guns, and the chance to win bragging rights over their Guardian compatriots. Don't worry, though. The best Destiny class is still…

Lord Shaxx’s Destiny 2 exercise mixtape is here to pump you up

If you too are trying to do home workouts with bottles of water and bags of sugar for weights, this might get you pumped up: a mixtape from Destiny 2 combining throbbing beats with the motivational words of Lord Shaxx. The Shaxxercize tape is a wee Easter egg in one quest from the new season, hidden on a shelf in the office of Commander Zavala,…

Google Stadia is helping Bungie keep Destiny 2’s lights on during Covid-19

Google Stadia might still be struggling to find its place in people's living rooms. But for one studio's home offices, it's becoming an invaluable piece of tech. After Covid-19 hit their home state of Washington pretty hard, Destiny 2 developers Bungie have explained the beefy laptops and cloud streaming workarounds that aim to keep Guardians fighting while working from home.

Here’s how game developers are handling the Covid-19 outbreak

Over the last week or so, game developers and publishers around the world have been announcing their action plans amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Bungie have offered advice to other companies, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege might miss a few patches, and many others have sent their employees home, dev kits in hand, to make sure production plods along, all the while doing their part to…

The gauntlet of increasingly difficult matchups challenges players to earn the sickest of loot. The best of the best will get special rewards for completing seven consecutive matches without losing.

Destiny 2 has started Season Of The Worthy

A new season has started in Destiny 2 today, bringing a new existential threat to the human race and new weapons to beat it back. This time, baddies riled that we broke their star-destroying superweapon are retaliating by straight-up crashing the miles-long spaceship into Earth. Rude. So here we are in Season Of The Worthy, powering up the defences of an ancient AI named Rasputin…

Destiny 2 fashionistas are thrilled and shocked by next season’s premium looks

Eververse, the premiere Destiny 2 fashion house, last night revealed its spring collection of street wear for Season Of The Worthy. Reactions from fashionistas have been loud and charged. I adore this collection, welcoming the option for some more casual duds, even if the Warlock outfit in the middle is so ludicrously, wonderfully, decadently uncasual (a look I think works for the class). The big…
