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!

Penultimate Bungie Weekly Update

This week’s Bungie Weekly Update has been posted! This week it goes over the ad campaign they have running (including the billboards in NYC we posted about earlier this week), as well as a Q&A with Luke Smith covering raids. In case you didn’t know, only 10 days until Destiny comes out! (SigbiasSilva pointed it out on the forum also).

Go read it and keep that hype going until September 9th! Claude also posted the local version. (Thanks for pointing it out in the forums, ireallylovelists)

Zero hour, 9am

The most recent Bungie Weekly Update contains a lot of tears - tears from Bungie devs who said goodbye to their Beta guardians for the last time. Now it's your turn. There's also a little info about Gamescom, starting this week, and some user questions (and DeeJ answers). Go read! (It's local, as usual, as well.)

Bungie Weekly Update - Beta Beginnings

It's Friday, so there's a new Bungie Weekly Update - and you should read it. It's (well, duh) focused on the Beta, and what is going on right now. (Are you going to be near your console tomorrow at 2pm PDT? You have a chance - in a very small window - to play in a special Crucible event at that point.) Want to know more? Read it for yourself. (We have a local copy, should you need it.) Thanks to SigbiasSilva for kicking off the thread on our forum.

It's All About the Beta

The Bungie Weekly Update this week is focused on the upcoming Beta - swing by to read a summary of all the good stuff released on Bungie Day, plus answers to burning questions that have sprouted up since. Thanks to Xenos for letting our forum know! (It's local, too, for those who need or want it.)

And the rockets' red glare...

Bungie Weekly Update appears on Fridays, most weeks. Since tomorrow is a pretty big holiday in the US, it's been dropped a day early - and it's chock-full of goodies for you. (Thanks, GrimBrother IV!) There are 5 new panoramas, showing off gorgeous Destiny landscapes... and Xenos even pointed out where redditor plattinator dropped them into a viewer on, so you can actually view them in the round. There are details about Bungie's presence at RTX this weekend, and the ability of conventiongoers to play a little bit. There's a wonderful bit about where the money for the Alpha Commemorative t-shirt is going. And there's a new mail sack. All in all, it's a collection of info you shouldn't pass up. (You can even read it here, on DBO, if you choose.) Enjoy your 4th!

Cheevos and Trophies and Betas, Oh My!

Want some Destiny info? Stop by and read the latest Weekly Update. Urk answers burning questions and takes potshots at DeeJ. Go read it all, and throw your two cents into the forum thread opened by Xenos! (You can, as always, read a local copy if it pleases you.)

Done and Dusted.

This afternoon, the Bungie Weekly Update was posted - and everyone should spend a few minutes reading it. It's great. Bungie's response to the Dinklage voiceover kerfluffle is simply hilarious. (There are also some impressive stats from just a short Alpha window, some great screenshots taken by fans, and a passel of questions and answers that will make you laugh and groan in turn.) As always, there's a local version in our Weekly Update Archive, if you need it. Thanks to Xenos for the heads-up!

To the Stars

The last Bungie Weekly Update before E3 has dropped (thanks, GrimBrother IV)  - go check out a cool new screenshot, some info about what's coming next week, and some answers to fan questions. Definitely worth your time! Go read. (We have a local version, of course - amazingly, no sneaky insert is needed this time to tell you about it.)

Clear Skies over the Battlegrounds

The Bungie Weekly Update is live, bringing with it the clatter of skirmishes on the proving ground.
Bungie's away team is finding their battle rhythm for E3; and there are whispers of one
of the first potential legends; the best hunting the beta has to offer.
He calls himself Tocom.

Go read! (It's local, too.)

Weekly Updates Don't Need Titles

Eep - we missed the Bungie Weekly Update last night. Sorry! (GrimBrother III didn't.) If you haven't read it, swing by - Bungie is gearing up for E3, and while the Update is light on studio news, it's heavy on fan questions (and even some cool answers). We've got a local copy, because sometimes archives are good things.

Rocks are the New Water

The most recent Bungie Weekly Update went live earlier today - there's a slew of information on the rock formations that you'll encounter in Old Russia along with some very pretty screenshots. The second half of the update answers a handful of burning community questions that include some answers about the role of factions in Destiny. We'll let you know as soon as the local version is available. [Edit: It's available.] Go read! (Thanks, petetheduck.)

Looking back on a big week

The most recent Bungie Weekly Update went live this afternoon - and it's a great summary of a pretty intense week. Videos and screenshots (if you've missed them elsewhere) fill the first half, along with information about how you can support a great cause and vote for Bungie sartorial splendor. The second half is a meaty Mail Sack with some tasty answers to burning questions. Go check it out! (There is, as always, a local copy in our BWU Archive, if you'd rather just stay here.) Notification came from GrimBrother IV - nice work, sir!

Weekly Update 4/25

The Bungie Weekly Update is live, with fresh news of the Pre-Alpha being deployed in the homes of Bungie troops, as well as what sounds like the rumblings of an approaching media storm.  Go read! [Mal doesn't like to look, but there's usually a local copy, too.]

On Track

This week was busy at Bungie - a prominent face disappeared, at almost the same moment as a new wave of publicity was initiated. Some things companies are comfortable talking about in public. Other things... not so much. The newest Bungie Weekly Update lets you know that far more info about Destiny is coming very, very soon... but is quiet (explicitly quiet) on the personnel shakeup. It is what it is - go give it a read. (You can read our local version if you choose.) Feel free to jump into the discussion that GrimBrother III has started on our own forum.

Of Robot Space Pimps and Fried Chicken

The latest Bungie Weekly Update is live on - and if you're drooling at the prospect of getting your hands on Destiny, this one will not make you any less hungry. Discussions of others doing what you cannot yet do are often enlightening... but usually frustrating. However, if you want to know every tidbit there is to know at this stage, these updates are your best keyhole through which to look! (There's a local copy, as well, just in case you need it.) Go read - and drool some more! I think Xenos might have been a COUPLE of minutes before me... but I was busy making that local version.

To fight the bug, we must understand the bug.

Yesterday's Bungie Weekly Update was a doozy - no real details, but they're in bug-squashing mode, which is exciting! (There are pictures. Not of bugs, you sicko.) There are also more pics of the Fallen Captain cake that Dave Candland received a few days ago. And some great questions and answers in the Mailsack. What are you waiting for? (We have a copy here, too, of course.)

Simmering Destiny to Perfection

The Bungie Weekly Update is live, with a first-hand account by DeeJ of how deliciously the Destiny experience is coming along. Take in some tantalizing impressions and stick around for a few juicy tidbits in the Mail Sack, giving some solid indications on the nature of PvP and why you'll want to experience what each flavor of Guardian has to offer. (Don't forget, there's always a local version, too.)

BWU: Fear My Laser Face!

The latest Weekly Update has graced the Bungie Blog with a thousand tiny things that I'm told are letters forming words and sentences. Why anyone would bother reading those is beyond me, since there are perfectly good pictures included as well - and as we all know, the picture-to-word exchange rate is nearly a thousand. Literary irreverence aside, this week's update takes us on a journey from playtest adventures in the Reef lab to Pentathlon planning with an exalted committee. There's even time for a User Research story and the customary Mail Sack. Go read! (It's local, too.)

BWU: Space Magical Mystery Tour

Fifty years ago, the Beatles kicked off the British Invasion with a historic appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. This week, DeeJ and Urk decided to return the favor by bringing a covert taste of Destinymania to England  (and its customs agents) - which explains why today's Bungie Weekly Update is so short and sweet.
