  • No Destiny 2 Halloween Event This Year

    destiny 2 halloween eventIt's been a tradition for Bungie to launch a Halloween event each year ever since Destiny first graced our consoles, but this year will be different. There will be no Destiny 2 Halloween event and the reason for this isn't really that clear.

    A Destiny fan asked David "Deej" Dague on Twitter whether there would be a Destiny 2 Halloween event and he simply responded with "No Sir." Later on, Deej expanded on his reply by saying, "We may see it again someday but Season 1 has been about launch and ritual activation. The first event for Destiny 2 is The Dawning."

    In Destiny 1, Festival of the Lost was the name of the Halloween event that would appear each year. Even though Destiny 1 also launched in September, (back in 2014) Bungie still released a Festival of the Lost event on the first year.

    It seems a shame that we won't be getting a Festival of the Lost Halloween event this year for Destiny 2, but hopefully, we will see it return next year.

    For those unaware, The Dawning is a Christmas themed event that initially launched for Destiny in December 2016. With it returning to Destiny 2, it'll mean players will have an opportunity to get involved with the festivities this Christmas, so that'll somewhat make up for the lack of a Destiny 2 Halloween event.

    Last year, The Dawning included a number of new cosmetic items, new legendary armor sets, the return of the Sparrow Racing League, The Dawning exclusive exotics, and a new Crucible playlist. Hopefully, we'll see a similarly sized content drop for Destiny 2 later this year.

  • Destiny 2 Patch Brings New Factions Legendary Weapon

    destiny 2 patch faction rallies legendaryA brand new Destiny 2 patch has hit both Xbox One and PS4. This patch brings a number of bug fixes, gameplay balancing changes, and also introduces a new legendary weapon via the recent factions feature.

    Let's start with the juicy stuff first, shall we? Patch 1.0.3.1 introduces a brand new legendary weapon that is now available as a reward for those that took part in the faction gameplay last week.

    The Faction Rallies event allowed players to join one of three factions to earn points for that faction and earn rewards. It was explained that the faction with the most points at the end of the week was to be given access to a legendary weapon related to that faction.

    Now that the event is over, the winning faction, Dead Orbit, has their scout rifle available in-game. All players can purchase the scout rifle for 50,000 glimmers. However, those in the Dead Orbit faction will be able to pick it up for just 1,000.

    The new Destiny 2 patch also brings a number of new bug fixes and changes to the game, including some changes to the maps in Crucible. An overview of the Crucible changes can be seen below.

    - Added invisible physics and kill volumes to keep players inside the intended playable area on the following maps:

    • Eternity
    • Altar of Flame
    • Emperor's Respite
    • Legion's Gulch
    • Javelin-4
    • The Dead Cliffs

    - Added invisible physics to all stairs in The Dead Cliffs to allow grenades to bounce properly.
    - Adjusted spawning system values to reduce the frequency of players respawning into dangerous situations on all maps.

  • Rockstar Energy Teamed Up With Bungie To Offer Destiny 2 Loot

    rockstar energy destiny 2Rockstar Energy Drink and Bungie have teamed up together to offer Destiny 2 players exclusive loot for purchasing and drinking Rockstar Energy drinks.

    The limited edition run of Rockstar Energy Drink cans will offer unique Destiny 2 themed designs across a total of three different flavors. Each can will have a unique code printed on it that can be used to access special loot in Destiny 2.

    Currently, the three flavors that feature the Destiny 2 branding are the original flavor, Blueberry Pomegranate Acai, and Tropical Guava. Each of the three flavors represents three Destiny 2 characters from the game's story.

    Unique items are available for all three classes; Titan, Warlock or Hunter. In total, there are 24 unique rewards for players to unlock via the Rockstar Energy drink campaign, and a total of three can be unlocked per week, per account.

    Players that enter a code will also be given an entry into various competitions hosted by Rockstar Energy. Each code will offer an entry to a daily competition, 1 weekly competition and 1 entry to the grand prize competition. Unlike the limit on Destiny 2 rewards, there are no limits to a number of entries players can get for the competitions.

    The daily prize is a copy of Destiny 2 Limited Edition. The weekly prize is a copy of Destiny 2 Limited Edition and a PS4 Pro console.

    The grand prize is a Destiny 2 themed Husqvarna 701 Enduro motorcycle.

  • First Destiny 2 Raid Goes Live

    destiny 2 raid leviathanThe first raid for Destiny 2 has finally gone live and we've got some unique details to share about it.

    Bungie's game director, Luke Smith, has revealed that the first raid will require a power level between 260 and 280. For those that haven't had a chance to play much Destiny 2 yet, you've got some catching up to do before the raid will be accessible to you.

    Raids have always been the most challenging aspect of the Destiny game world, so it makes sense that a minimum power level cap has been set to make sure inexperienced players don't accidentally walk into a world filled with pain.

    The first raid for Destiny 2 is called Leviathan. So far, we're not sure how the raid will work, or what enemies it will consist of. We do know, however, that players that do not yet have a team of friends to join them can now use matchmaking to find existing teams to play alongside.

    Leviathan originally launched on September 13 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. We're expecting to see more raids released over the next couple of years, but for now, this first Leviathan raid will certainly keep players busy for the next few weeks.

    Destiny 2 originally launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 6, 2017. The game has already broken some massive records, including a 1.2 million concurrent player count. These numbers are only expected to increase when Destiny 2 gets a launch on PC on October 24.

  • All Destiny 2 Exotic Weapons And Armor Leaked

    destiny 2 exotic weaponsWhile Destiny 2 still isn't out yet, we have some new information about the game thanks to a recent leak. The new leak reveals all of the exotic weapons and armor that'll come to Destiny 2 on launch day.

    The leak was carried out by Reddit users NFSgaming, supadhalster, and SleeperWho.

    The leak also contains plenty of information about the game content, the tower, the final campaign mission, the strikes, and some information about the story missions.

    The leak also shares detailed information about the new subclasses and the different abilities that they'll have in Destiny 2. The most exciting information, however, is without a doubt the exotics information.

    Unfortunately, the leaked images have since been removed, but we can confirm that Destiny 2 will have more new exotics that it originally had in the first Destiny. Players will also be able to get access to some of the exotic weapons and armor pieces originally released in Destiny 1.

    Interestingly, the Gjallarhorn rocket launcher will not be making a return to Destiny 2, despite it being one of the most popular exotics in the first Destiny. Other than the Gjallarhorn, it seems as if all other old exotics will be making a return.

    If you'd like to look into the new exotics and leaked Destiny 2 story information, it can be found online and in the Destinythegame subreddit on reddit.com. We won't post them here because we understand that the information is loaded with spoilers.

  • Destiny 2 Open Beta Extended

    destiny 2 open betaWe've got some great news for anybody enjoying the Destiny 2 Open Beta. The end time for the beta has been pushed further into the future, which means players have more time to play.

    Bungie still has more service testing to complete so that things are ready for release later this year. As a result, the Destiny 2 open beta has been extended until July 25. On July 25, the beta will end at around 6 PM.

    The open beta for Destiny 2 originally started on July 21. It included some content from the main campaign, as well as some PVP content from the Crucible.

    The campaign content included the first campaign mission, Homecoming. Crucible content includes the Countdown attack/defend mode on Endless Vale, which is a new Crucible map.

    On top of the solo-focused campaign and the PVP content, the open beta for Destiny 2 also includes a co-op focused Strike mission. The Strike available on the Destiny 2 beta is called The Inverted Spire and it has a focus on firefights against the Vex.

    In The Inverted Spire, players must invade a Vex stronghold. It must be played with at least two people. If you don't have anybody to play it with, you can use the new in-game matchmaking features to find a player to partner up with.

    Are you looking forward to Destiny 2? The game will release on September 6 for Xbox One and PS4, and October 24 for PC.

  • Huge Destiny 2 Beta Preload File Goes Live

    Destiny 2 Beta PreloadPreviously, a small preload file for the Destiny 2 beta was put up online. The preload file was only 400MB in size, however, which lead many people to speculate that a bigger patch was coming closer to the beta start date.

    This has proven to be true today as a brand new patch for the Destiny 2 beta preload client has gone live. The new update is 12.6GB in size, making the total file size for the Destiny 2 beta client 13GB.

    This information is based on the beta client on the PlayStation 4 - file size may vary slightly on other platforms.

    If you've already pre-purchased Destiny 2, you'll now be able to jump into the action. Get the download started because the Destiny 2 beta will continue until July 23rd.

    The beta originally started on the PlayStation 4 on July 18. The Xbox One beta started on July 19.

    The PC beta for Destiny 2 will not go live until August. Currently, the exact Destiny 2 PC beta date hasn't been locked in.

  • Crash N.Sane Gets Insane First Sales Week

    crash n.sane first sales weekThe Crash N.Sane trilogy has received some pretty spectacular first week sales, and it presents some potential for a brand new future of Crash Bandicoot games.

    As well as breaking some first week sales records this year, the Crash N.Sane trilogy has quickly jumped to the top of the sales charts and it's looking to be the hottest drop this year, despite the PS4 exclusivity.

    In the UK, more people bought Crash Bandicoot in the first week than people purchase Horizon Zero Dawn, making it the biggest selling first week title in the UK so far this year.

    In other news, it's been reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy may be making its way to the Xbox One. While the Crash Bandicoot remaster was first launched as a PS4 exclusive title, the huge reception the game has received has pushed Naughty Dog to consider publishing it on the Xbox One.

    Recently, XboxAchievements reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy will be getting an Xbox One release on December 8 this year.

    Hopefully, this recent success will just be the start of a very successful future for the Crash Bandicoot franchise. There's no doubt that a lot of people out there absolutely love Sony's furry orange bandicoot.

    What are your thoughts on the new Crash N.Sane trilogy? The game is a port of the first three Crash Bandicoot games that originally launched on the PlayStation One and PS2. New versions of Crash Bandicoot were built in recent years, but nothing could outperform the success of the original trilogy.

  • Destiny 2 Gear Won't Have Randomly Assigned Stats

    Destiny 2 gear statsOne of the biggest mechanics in Destiny isn't coming back to Destiny 2 and it has split the community in two.

    In the original Destiny, each weapon drop can have stats randomly assigned to it. With this approach, it means players were encouraged to grind missions over and over again for a chance to get a more powerful version of their favorite weapons.

    However, in Destiny 2, this randomly assigned stats mechanic will be removed.

    This random stat mechanic has been used in similar games for years - it's a system that's been used in Borderlands and Diablo, and it's been something that has fueled the addictive nature of these types of loot-focused games. With the random stats gone in Destiny 2, getting good gear is still rewarding, but once you've got the best weapons in the game, you'll know that there isn't a chance to get even better gear.

    This has the potential to reduce the replayability of Destiny 2, especially if there isn't enough content added to the game. Destiny originally had very little content, but it was the chase for better loot that got players happily replaying the same content over and over.

    There are two major reasons why Bungie has taken this new approach to loot. The first reason is so that those who don't have hours to grind each day still have a chance to get the best weapons. The second reason is for balancing - with every item type now having the same stats, it will be far easier to balance weapons, which is great for the Crucible.
