Bungie Weekly Update - the buildup to 1.1.1

It's Thursday - and time for another Bungie Weekly Update. This one focuses on the changes coming soon in the next game update - bug fixes and weapons tweaks we already know about, plus stuff we don't. The Heroic Weekly Strike is headed for Matchmaking... and its designer will explain why. And there are some extra bug fixes that will decrease stress levels all over the Destiny landscape. Look for it soon. There's also community news (new mentors, cool/funny submissions from fans, and more), and a cautionary tale. Go read! (It's local, too.)

A Thursdate with Deej - 2/12/2015

The new Weekly Update brings you some nice tasty treats this time around. Doubles Skirmish is the playlist of the Valentine weekend, and there's fun player-created videos... But most importantly there's a taste of what's coming in the next game update - a tweak to the UI that allows players to view their reputations with the various factions of the game at any point they can access the menu. Awesome!

(Korny mentioned it first on the forums, and we have a local copy here as well.)

Weekly Update - 2/5/2015

This week's update dropped some hints on upcoming patches, the notable weapon tweaks already mentioned, the House of Wolves DLC... and something this fall? Hmmm...

You can also read it here at DBO.

Bungie Weekly Update

This week's Bungie Weekly Update is ready for your perusal. Lots of good information (and anti-misinformation) about the changes we're seeing in Destiny both this week and next, when Expansion I: The Dark Below launches. DeeJ clears up a few things, including some information about the upgrade process for Exotic gear. And the Iron Banner is making a return sooner than you'd think!

Post-Turkey Catch-Up

Still have yet another Thanksgiving tomorrow (not that free turkey is something to complain about), but here's some of the news we've missed:

  • The latest Bungie Weekly Thursdate was posted Wednesday (what?). Not too much to ignite your fire since the holiday was on approach, but hey, you're not doing anything, so go read it. The biggest thing to gleam is the Black Friday sale at the Bungie Store.
  • Xur is in town (our illustrated Xur post will return next weekend after the ham disappears). Go read ChaosSociety's post to see a few things he's willing to trade - I need to go get a Plan C, personally!
  • CruelLEGACEY dropped off some fanart he made - go look!

  • Iron Banner math explained in line graphs

  • They guy who made the Tumbler is awesome

Bungie Weekly Update - 11/7/14

Sorry for the delay, I think I was playing Destiny Friday night when this was posted! If you haven't already read, this update laid out a lot of the upcoming changes to be made/added to Destiny like Fireteam chat channels, new shaders, and a lot more. There's also some shots of areas to be found in the coming DLC. Looking pretty! (Also in our database.)

Bungie Spookly Update - October 31, 2014

The Halloween edition of the Bungie Weekly Update has been posted, and DeeJ covers some questions I'm sure a lot of us had about the Dark Below (like the fact that we'll all get 5 additional Bounty slots, even if we don't buy the expansion). And of course an update from the DOC covering the Monkey errors popping up after the recent update. Happy Halloween! (Here, too.)

Bungie Weekly Update - 10/10

Head on over to Bungie.Net for the latest Deej has to offer the community. If you thought some of the competition was strange in the Iron Banner, it sounds like Bungie has noticed it too. Deej sits down with Designer Derek Carroll and talks about what exactly is balanced versus leveled in the event. It sounds like next time the Iron Banner unfurls, it will play out differently. The other biggie in the update is the status on added voice features: we'll get the details on those potential additions next week.

You can also read it on DBO here.

Weekly Update and Destiny Soundtrack

The Bungie Weekly Update landed early today with the announcement of the long-awaited Destiny Original Soundtrack! You can grab it now from iTunes and the Update says that more information is coming next week about further availability. The full album (which I have yet to finish listening to) clocks in at over 2 hours, 18 minutes, which is right around the limit of a 2-CD set.

There's also an interview with Invigorate, the first clan to beat the Vault of Glass on hard mode, a mysterious coin hunt in the Tower, and another Mail Sack for your perusal.

Bungie Weekly Update: Stats Fun & Renders

We'll eventually have a local copy of the update but for now you can head on over to Bungie.Net for some fun statistics on how many ridiculous hours players have already poured into Destiny, some even in the form of Lord of the Rings units, heh! There's also some info and interviews regarding the Raid and the first Raid victors.

If you don't normally read the Update, it's still worth checking out simply for the link to a series of posts from Bungie artists revealing some of their work in the game, from environment art to vehicle and weapon renders. They're not only desktop-worthy, they're inspiring!
