Destiny fashionistas, it’s safe to stop hoarding looks for transmog

Fashionistas of The Last City, you may breath a sigh of relief and begin clearing out your wardrobe: Bungie have confirmed that Destiny 2's upcoming transmogrification won't require us to hold the original item. The workings of the transmog system are still largely unknown but game director Luke Smith did say last night that yes, if we want to duplicate a garment's look and apply…

Destiny 2’s next season brings back Uldren Sov as an ally, and I feel hope for its future

The man who killed our pal Cayde-6 will return to Destiny 2 with Season Of The Hunt, Bungie revealed today. Well, the Guardian reanimated from the corpse of the man who killed Cayde will. It's complicated. Spacemagic. With the Beyond Light expansion now two weeks away, Bungie today released a new video documentary gabbing about its development and laying out more of their plans for…

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…

Halo 3: ODST has arrived on PC

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has gained another game, except this one isn't actually about that Master Chief guy. Halo 3: ODST arrived on PC today, giving players the chance to follow the story of some normal human dudes, and not a giant Spartan. It takes place before the events of Halo 3, and you play as some Orbital Drop Shock Troopers who're trying to…

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…

Halo 3: ODST drops onto PC next week

Halo's long-overdue missing PC releases will continue with Halo 3: ODST next Tuesday, the 22nd of September, Microsoft announced today. ODST was one of Bungie's last Halo games and it turns away from jacked supersoldier Master Chef to focus on some regular squishy humans: Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. The game has a good squad of these, borrowing voices from noughties sci-fi stars including Nathan Fillion,…

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,…

The best Halo, ODST, begins closed testing this month

From weary old gorillas to graphical japes, we've all had our fun with Halo Infinite over the last few weeks. But haud on, we've still got the rest of Halo: The Master Chief Collection to get through before finishing that particular fight. This month, 343 will begin closed insider flighting for Halo 3: ODST, Master Chief's moody, jazz-noir cousin that's secretly the best of the…

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,…

Feature: A nice, refreshing pint of Halo.

Halo 3 made me realise there’s only really one Halo game, and it’s all of them

The PC remaster of Halo 3 is another beautiful, robust polish job that shows just how well Bungie’s bombastic shooter series has aged. I recommend it heartily. Yes, it’s marred with some baffling narrative choices, bungled ally AI, and a few instances of phoned-in level design, of course. But then, in the immortal words of that astronaut meme, “always has been”. And at this point,…

Halo 3 is now out on PC, 13 years after its debut

13 years after its Xbox 360 debut, Halo 3 is finally out on PC. While the first two games came over from Xbox, the conclusion to Bungie's first-person shooter trilogy stayed home. After 13 years, you'll finally be able to see what became of Master Ian Chief. Did he, as he vowed at the end of Halo 2, finish this fight? You'll have to play…
