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…

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

Bungie will today give Destiny 2 a dose of vim and vigour in update 1.1.4, nicknamed the Go Fast Update. 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. More speed, more oomph. "We have heard the feedback of 'My guns don't feel powerful enough,…

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…

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…

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…
