This Week At Bungie - 03/09/2017

This week at Bungie we revealed the next live event in Destiny.

So many players are curious about their next adventure. Before we can begin that conversation, we have a celebration to host. If you have a Guardian, you're invited.

From the day your Ghost woke you to the moment you chose to read this blog yet again, much has happened. A journey that began in September 2014 has led to a new age of triumph and remembrance. Before we begin to write a new chapter together, Age of Triumph is a chance for every Guardian to document their story so far.

Our reveal stream has been archived if you missed it. If you saw it, roll on that last cinematic again. It's a solid metaphor for how much the creators of this game have appreciated you lighting the way.

Too-Long-Won't-Watch Mission Brief

  • The culmination of your Destiny 1 adventure
  • Biggest Record Book Ever
  • 13 pages of documented accomplishments
  • Ways for every player to shine and be rewarded
  • A new set of weekly rituals that lead to maximum Light
  • Weekly Featured Raids with new challenges and ornaments
  • What was that about adding some mayhem to the Nightfall?

If this created more questions than it answered, we're off to a good start. Thanks for being curious and ever ready for action! You'll find some more answers if you scroll, and two more reveals will stream before the party begins.

Next week, we're talking about the weekly rituals, and we'll play a Strike bathed in Light.

The week after that, we're showing off rewards and talking about how they'll impact the sandbox.

If you still have questions after that, there will be nothing left to do but download that Record Book and shoot your way through to the final answers. Those first-person investigations are the most fun, so we're leaving some of them for you on purpose. No one will have completed all the challenges of this age on day one.

March 28 is when you get to peer through the keyhole at the full scope of your legend.

(Record (Book) Report)

When it comes to answering the tough questions that players ask, no one does it better than the Player Support Team. They know what's on your mind because they read our forums all day. After the new news broke yesterday, they fanned out to tackle some facts on request. They also have old business on the docket.

This is their report.

Age of Triumph FAQ
After the conclusion of the Age of Triumph reveal stream, DPS received many player inquiries. The following are the three most frequently asked questions that we've encountered in the #Help forum.

Q: Will I receive credit on the Commemorations page of the Age of Triumph Record Book for participating in previous Destiny Releases if I've deleted a Character?
A: Yes, but only on the same Account. The Commemorations Page of the Record Book will be the only page that references Account data. All other Triumph nodes within this Record Book will be Character based. As such, progress will be lost if it was previously made on a character that you've deleted prior to downloading Update 2.6.0.

Q: Will I receive credit for participating in previous Destiny Releases if I've upgraded from a Legacy Console?
A: Yes, but only if you successfully completed the Account Import process at the time of the upgrade. In that case, players who have migrated from a Legacy Console to a console within the same family will receive credit for participation in previous Destiny Releases on the new platform.
Please Note the following: Account Data from Legacy Consoles will only be reflected within the same console family. 
  • PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4
  • Xbox 360 to Xbox One

Any progress made in previous releases on a Legacy Console after completing the Account Import will not be reflected on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One Record Book.

Q: Will there be any increase to Vault Space?
A: No. The following Collections added in previous Destiny Updates were the final storage solutions implemented for Destiny 1:
  • Exotic Weapons
  • Exotic Armor
  • Ships
  • Shaders
  • Emblems
  • Emotes
  • Holiday Items
  • Abandoned Quests

Additional information will be provided through the Destiny: Age of Triumph Guided Support, which will be published to on March 28. Stay tuned to @BungieHelp for additional information.

Destiny Update Recap
Earlier this week, Destiny underwent a small scheduled update. No changes were made to the player-facing Destiny experience. Once an Update has been released, Destiny Player Support monitors the #Help forum to ensure players are proceeding through the download process as expected. 

With this recent update, we saw an increase in reports of players having to re-download large portions of Destiny content, which equated to longer-than-expected console downloads. This is the result of a console attempting to verify all previously downloaded content. This includes the base game and all Destiny Updates/Hotfixes. If any issues are found, or the verification process is interrupted, all previous content will be deleted and downloaded again. To ensure that players do not encounter this often, we highly recommend using a wired connection when downloading Destiny Updates or Hotfixes. Additionally, if a player is experiencing network issues during the download process, this may lead to some content being lost or damaged. For more information, please see our Updating Destiny Guide.

Stay tuned to @BungieHelp for future announcements concerning Destiny Maintenance and Downtime.

This is where the fun begins every week. Guardians are equal parts creative and dangerous. Your Community Manager will now designate targets and winners. 

Cozmo: This week we're delivering a double dose of Bungie Bounties. Both players are from Brazil. Gameplayrj will be your target on March 10. BRKsEDU will be your target on March 15.

The Movie-ment

Cozmo: Do you know how many feet of tube the movies of the week travel through before they reach your screen? It's like, a lot. Anyway, I just got back from the Creations page and have new winners locked and loaded. After we launch this week's movies, all of their creators will be sent Emblems as a virtual trophy. If you would like a shot at winning next week, follow the link above to the Creations page and submit your movie. 

Movie of the Week: Light From Which No Darkness Can Hide

Honorable Mention: What do you think is down there?

Honorable Mention: The Criminals

Time to pack a bag for PAX East. Not all celebrations happen in the game. If you're going, we should all meet up here. That won't be a Bungie panel, mind you. Cozmo and I will be in the audience to listen to the Guardians tell their own stories, as it should be at an event about community.

We hope you can join us in chat next week. Age of Triumphs still has secrets to tell.

DeeJ, out.
