  • 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.

  • COD WW2 Dev Very Dedicated to eSports

    COD WW2 esportsCall of Duty has always had a strong eSports focus - in recent years the developers and publisher responsible for the Call of Duty franchise have worked hard to push out more support for eSports in the series, and this support isn't going to stop with Call of Duty World War 2.

    In fact, Sledgehammer Games, the developer in control of COD WW2, has been in contact with professional Call of Duty players to help shape the competitive aspects of World War 2.

    Michael Condrey, co-founder of Sledgehammer games, had a few positive things to say about their interaction with pro players and their work on making COD WW2 an eSports friendly title.

    When asked about pro players, Micheal Condrey mentioned that "They've been fantastic and excited and in many ways, I think they enjoyed returning to a grounded experience with more strategy without the mechanical element. It plays right into what they've been asking for."

    Michael was impressed by the amount of positive comments they received for COD WW2 after the recent Infinite Warfare release. Recently, WW2 was playable at E3 2017, and many top competitive players and COD content creators were invited.

    "Apart from having hands on the floor and at our building with influencers and eSports athletes over the last few days has really shown what we expected all along which was a huge appetite for a return to boots on the ground, to have it feel strategic and have it reinforce team play a lot more."

  • Destiny 2 Rewards for Returning Destiny Players Revealed

    destiny 2 rewardsPlayers of the original Destiny won't be getting much when transitioning to Destiny 2, but there are a number of freebies up for grabs to those that did spend time in the first game of the franchise.

    Bungie published a new blog post to explain their plans for veteran Destiny players, starting by saying, "Even before our old friend Cayde revealed that your stuff (but, more importantly, his stuff) would soon fall prey to the Red Legion, we let you know that we were going to honor our veteran players who join us again in Destiny 2. Today, we're going to shine a little light on what you can expect if you count yourself among those ranks."

    Bungie was hesitant to go into too many details - it seems that they've carefully planned out rewards for returning players, but they do not want to spoil the fun. Bungie did, however, mention that there will be a number of ways players will be able to showcase their early support for the Destiny franchise.

    Firstly, Bungie announced a number of emblems that players will be able to use. Each emblem is unlocked for specific reasons. Including playing a Moment of Triumph during Destiny year 1, completing the Taken King in year 2, or achieving over 5,000 grimoire score over the course of Destiny.

    Bungie will also be offering a number of T-shirts for reaching different accomplishments before August 1, 2017.

    Destiny 2 launches on Xbox and PS4 on September 6, 2017, and launches on PC on October 24, 2017.

  • PS4 Destiny 2 Exclusives Will Come to Xbox in 2018

    PS4 Destiny 2 2018For those that don't know, the PlayStation 4 will be getting a number of timed exclusive items for Destiny 2.

    It's now been revealed that these exclusive items will only be limited to the PS4 for a year, before being released to both the Xbox One and the PC.

    Destiny 2's game director, Luke Smith, replied to a Tweet on Twitter which asked about the PS4 Destiny 2 exclusivity deal. Luke Smith mentioned that "Destiny 2's PlayStation-exclusive content will arrive on Xbox One and PC in 2018."

    An exact date for the end of the exclusivity deal wasn't given but it makes sense that it will follow exactly one year after the release of the content on the PS4.

    What Destiny 2 Exclusive Content Do PS4 Players Get?

    Those that purchase Destiny 2 on the PlayStation 4 will get a number of exclusive items to use for an entire year before the content is available for Xbox One and PC players.

    The main exclusive item for Destiny 2 PS4 players is the Lake of Shadows Strike - this is an entire Strike mission that'll remain on the PS4 exclusively until 2018. There will also be a Crucible multiplayer map for the PS4 called Retribution.

    PS4 players will also get access to the Borealis Exotic sniper rifle and the Apex ship.

    Destiny 2 is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017. The game was initially set to launch on September 8.

    The PC release of Destiny 2 will be available for PC players through the Battle.net client, starting on October 24.

  • Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer Detailed

    call of duty ww2 multiplayerDetails for the multiplayer in the new Call of Duty WW2 have been spilled at this year's E3. We now have a gameplay trailer for the multiplayer aspect of WW2, and a confirmation on the date for the PS4 multiplayer beta.

    Firstly, the new multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty WW2 has now gone live. The trailer features a number of noteworthy shots. Some of the environments players can expect to play in are seen. Locations include Normandy in France; the Ardennes Forest in Belgium, and Aachen in Germany.

    Some gameplay footage was also shown. Straight off the bat, it's clear that this is a Call of Duty game - but it certainly feels more in-line with the earlier Call of Duty titles. Those that played Call of Duty World at War will feel at home with Call of Duty WW2, that's for sure.

    While the game has a more gritty, realistic approach, it'll still have a number of trademark Call of Duty features, including a Zombies mode.

    In other news, the Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer beta now has a date. The multiplayer beta will begin on PlayStation 4 on August 25. We're not yet sure how long the beta will last, and we're not sure if there will be an Xbox One or PC beta. It is clear, however, that the beta is currently exclusive to those that preorder Call of Duty WW2 on the PS4.

  • Destiny 2 To Get Clan Support

    destiny 2 clan supportDestiny 2 is finally getting in-game clan support.

    In the original Destiny, players were forced to build clans and organize team events outside of the game. It was far more difficult to get players together, but despite this, massive communities were built around Destiny anyway.

    In Destiny 2, players will no longer need to go through the same struggles. Destiny 2 will introduce in-game clan support to the franchise for the first time. Anybody will be able to set up a clan and invite friends. Once a clan is created, players will get given periodic rewards based upon the entire clan's performance throughout different activities in Destiny 2.

    Each clan will have their own Clan banner, which players will be able to wear with pride.

    Bungie also announced a new feature that will help players without clans. In Destiny, it was very difficult to play the high-level content without a team of friends to do it with, because of the lack of matchmaking for raids. In Destiny 2, clans will be able to search for additional players if they are a player or two short.

    This will give players in clans the opportunity to find additional players when there aren't enough clan members online, and it will also give players without a clan the chance to play with clans that they could then potentially join.

    Destiny 2 is going to launch on September 8, 2017 and will be coming to PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
