TWAB 5-4-23

This Week's TWAB At Bungie is tease-a-rific. I mean look at the main image! It's ripe for speculation. But anyway, topics include the new Guardian Games, a lot of Season of the Deep game lot. There's a new shader that will make you look like Goldar from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. There's a lot. I'm still scrolling down. GO READ IT!

Destiny Dev Team Details Variable Weather on Europa

Here's a cool tidbit: Destiny 2 Beyond Light is getting some cool new weather systems to help Europa feel more dangerous and atmospheric. Weather conditions are now scriptable, and can affect things like fog, wind, and snow. They can also increase otherwise dormant environmental noises like buildings groaning under the weight of ice buildup. To read more, head on over to Bungie's 100% Chance of Snow article

It'll be interesting to see if this scriptable weather comes to existing locations like the EDZ, or to the newly revived Cosmodrome that we're getting with Beyond Light.

The Nine & Rasputin?

Recently, Pyromancy posted a couple of interesting observations about Rasputin's bunkers and a possible entanglement with The Nine and the Unknown Space that The Reckoning takes place in. Are we looking at re-skinned geometry or a more intriguing mystery? If you notice any other weird similarities elsewhere in Destiny, let us know! 

P.S. Bleep Bloop.

Revisiting an old plea

Music of the Spheres is a symphonic suite that we first heard about when Bungie announced Destiny, back in early 2013. (We didn't mention it by name here until June of that year - but Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori talked about it during the initial Destiny press conference in February.) It's one of the things that got lost in the ether when Marty O'Donnell was fired from Bungie in 2014 - while parts of it (maybe all of it) found life in the game, the suite, as a whole, remains unreleased. Yesterday, a fan decided to see if he could help change that - Timothy Nyce started a petition on to try and convince Bungie to release the music after all. In its first day, it garnered over 1,000 signatures; what number would change minds and put this in the hands of the fans? Sign it and see

Festival of the Lost - Starting tomorrow!

Bungie is bringing back the Festival of the Lost, with new decorations, new activities, and new goodies to collect. You can find more details on their Festival Landing Page, but the bottom line is this: starting tomorrow, October 25, and running for a couple of weeks, there'll be lots of silly things to see and do! They've even updated the Bungie Store to give you real-world goodies to buy (thanks, unoudid). Enjoy!

Crazy Info Dump - Lazy Summer Edition

So it's summer, and we're busy. Or maybe we're hanging out at the beach. Or just in the back yard, with margaritas. Or whatever. The point is, we're getting less reported than maybe we should. So let's summarize a few of the cool things that have happened over the past week:

Bungie's Luke Smith raided with TheMavShow as part of a charity event for, and agreed to tell fun stories about the development of the Vault of Glass Raid for each $100 donated. There's a Twitch archive of the full 2.5+ hour event, but if you're just in it for the stories, Datto did a nice job of splicing together many (most?) of the stories.

The Playstation Blog detailed the Playstation exclusives coming with Rise of Iron - a new map, a new quest, and a new ship. Go read about all of it! Those of us who play on Xbox One will see this stuff in a year. Thanks to CyberKN for the heads-up.

Timeless Tereshkova

Yesterday, a new update launched, which marked the end simultaneous progress on different generations of the same platform. Your character on the Xbox 360 is no longer linked to your character on the Xbox One, and your character on the PS3 is no longer linked to the PS4. Full details can be found at, or in our Patch Note Archive.

Yesterday, Bungie revealed a boatload of information about Rise of Iron in a Livestream from Gamescom. The big reveal was the existence of Private Matchmaking (more details at, natch), but it's an hour-long stream, and full of all sorts of goodies. You can watch an embedded archive below, or visit our forum for conversation with fans.

At the same time as the Livestream, Bungie released their latest ViDoc - this one is called 'Forged In Fire', and can be viewed on YouTube. (We've added it to our official video archive, as well.) There's quite a bit of discussion about this, too - very spirited! Many fans are unhappy at the reveal of information about the upcoming raid in Rise of Iron - while there are no MAJOR spoilers in the ViDoc, if you're intent on going into the raid completely blind, you should probably skip this one for the time being.

Last, but DEFINITELY not least, longtime fan TDSpiral stopped in with some new fanart - he's tried to visualize The Last Great Ahamkara, and whether or not he's created something that Bungie would agree belongs in their universe, it's fantastic. A tiny teaser has been included below, but visit his Artstation page to see the full image, plus some behind-the-scenes stuff. I love this!

Okay - I feel like I've gotten SOME of the important stuff off our collective plate. I need to wrap this up - there's a margarita with my name on it just a few short steps away.

The Smallest Guardian

ObsidianKitteh stopped in with a pretty cool announcement - he's gonna be a dad! And because both he and his wife are Destiny fanatics... well, the announcement is Destiny-themed, right down to the game box. Check out the images, and wish him luck! (My guess is, by June, his gaming time is gonna drop a little.)

Festival of the Lost!

Halloween is in full swing at the Tower! Log in to Destiny, grab a mask, get a candy bag and get questing! While there's a few new cosmetic microtransactions if you're interested, there's still plenty to do and see for free!

Staring At the Sun - Fanboys

Apparently there's a new Star Wars movie or something coming out, and CruelLEGACY had some fun combining a squadron of Destiny jumpships and the nostalgia of a classic. Biggs would have been proud!

Is the Tower Haunted?

Ragashingo experienced an ectoplasmic event the other day and lived to tell DBO about it! In the Hall of Vanguards he caught sight of a "ghost bird" and was able to record it. It's a little hard to see, but you can probably find it after a couple of viewings. If you ARE having trouble seeing it, Beorn's pointed it out for you!

Staring at the Sun - Monday Update

CruelLEGACEY continues to post Staring at the Sun comics on our forum (and has even adopted Beorn's suggested title!) - two new ones went up this morning. Both made me chuckle. 

Moment of Triumph:

and Be Brave:

Good stuff!

SATS: The Speaker

He's on a roll! CruelLEGACEY stopped by with another entry for his unnamed comic that I've decided to call Staring at the Sun. Behold:

CruelLEGACEY posted a new Lighthouse comic in the forum:

Staring at the Sun.

CruelLEGACEY has started putting together some amusing Lighthouse-themed comics. He hasn't given it a name yet, but I thought the title of the first worked pretty well, "Staring at the Sun."

Here are the first four: Staring at the Sun., Knock Knock, Relaxation, and LFG. Go check 'em out!

Crucible Changes, Free TDB Maps Coming Soon?

IGN has a couple new stories up today. The first discusses some interesting changes coming to the Crucible, including increased Crucible Mark drops and experience gains. The second reports that The Dark Below Crucible maps will be free for all players when House of Wolves arrives in a few weeks. (Thanks, bluerunner!)

The Puzzle Pieces That Make Up Destiny

Our ol' pal Hedge pointed out that Sid Moye, environment artist at Bungie, has updated his ArtStation portfolio with his work on Cabal environments, with a great shot of the foundational materials used to build much of the Cabal interiors as seen below:

There's also some intriguing views of his work on the Moon!

Bungie Ride-Alongs - learn more today!

Last week's Ride Along with the Dads of Destiny didn't get any front-page lovin' when it happened - but if you're a Destiny fan, you should defintely watch it. Lots and lots of behind-the-scenes tidbits on the making of the game and the development of the Cosmodrome from Lead World Artist Rob Adams. If you like this sort of thing, they published another one just a week earlier, with MoreConsole and World Artist Blake Low, focusing on Venus. If this schedule keeps up, there'll be a new one this Friday. They're streamed live on Twitch, so you can watch in real time - or you can enjoy them after the fact, on your own schedule (the Venus one is here, the Earth one is here). Spectacular!

You should cease asking scary questions.

Wow. I'm pretty sure I'd pay for Samuel L. Jackson as the Ghost, if it sounded anything like this:

(Thanks, Schedonnardus.)

Paul McCartney of 'Wings' Talks Destiny

boushh.png... He's known for a few other bands, too, I hear. You can go see the legend talk Destiny and how terrible he is at games on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Thanks, General Vagueness!
