Another really solid TWAB this week, focusing on some major changes coming to Nightfalls (especially Prestige Nightfalls) and Raids (especially Prestige Raids).
Nightfalls will soon have new scoring and timing mechanics, as well as strike-specific emblems to track and flaunt your highest scores. Additionally, Challenge Cards will drop that will allow you to activate certain modifiers and handicaps on Prestige runs that make it more challenging, but also come with score multipliers and promises of more rewarding loot. The first of theses changes are slated for Update 1.1.3, currently targeted for February 27th, but Bungie promises that theses are only initial offerings that will be tweaked and added to as time goes on and community feedback rolls in.
As for Raid activities, new challenges will be coming to Prestige Raids in the form of curated loadouts. Each week, one Raid/Raid Lair will be set up with a rotating slate of modifiers and loadout restrictions with the core goals being to "provide new ways to engage with raid content each week, new ways to engage with different weapons in your vault, and new rewards to chase." These raid changes are being target for May.
It's Thursday, so the summary of Bungie's week is live at Bungie.net (and in our Weekly Update Archive) - swing by to read it! The roadmap they published yesterday on Twitter is in there, if you missed it, along with a substantial update from Sandbox Design Lead Josh Hamrick (some interesting tidbits in there, and some very welcome news for charging Titans), details about the recent update and known issues arising from it via the Destiny Player Support team, and a pair of fun vids. Go give it a few minutes!
For the update this week Bungie has included a ton of great info about the update coming next week. Included is the dates and loot coming for Iron Banner (starting January 30th), the fine details about Masterworks Armor, the rework of the Raid rewards system (including one new exotic Ghost shell), and the smaller fixes and tweaks coming in the patch itself. In addition make sure to read Tyson Green's details on why deleting shaders hasn't been improved yet, including their plans to rework the entire shader system to make it more friendly. And to finish it off the Movie of the Week is a lightning fast Argos kill. Check it out! (Local copy will be here)
And while it's the final update of the year, the world of Destiny 2 is by no means slowing down, with The Dawning (and a new Osiris-themed webcomic) on the way next week, which looks like it'll be a ton of fun! Destiny Player Support never rests either, with a list of this week's known issues, and a reminder that while most of the folks at Bungie will be away for the holidays, there are a number of ways that you can still make your voice heard!
Capping things off, the MoTW's are all about wordless expressions (possibly in honor of the all-deaf team that managed to conquer the new Raid Lair?), and we are left with a reminder that the updates to the game will continue early into the new year. Check it out over at Bungie's site, or feel free to read the local copy available here, then get ready to throw some snowballs on Tuesday!
Yesterday, Bungie posted another update about Destiny 2 - the week was unsurprisingly dominated by the launch of Curse of Osiris. If you missed the trailer, it's included. If you need info on the launch of the Raid Lair, it's included. If you're curious about the next Faction Rally, which launches next Tuesday, it's included. If you're wondering about balance tweaks, a discussion is included. If you want to know how Bungie handles feedback, it's included. It should go without saying that the standard features - help from the Support team, and fan-created vids - are included. Go read! We've got it in our Weekly Update Archive, if you need it.
dmg04 posted the most recent Bungie Weekly Update yesterday (Cozmo's still out on paternity leave) - swing by to catch up. There are links to Wednesday's blog update and podcast, if you missed those. There is a preview of the armor and weapons dropping with Curse of Osiris on Tuesday. There's a pre-flight check from Destiny Player Support, so you're ready to play CoO as soon as it's out. And there are a couple of impressive fan vids for your enjoyment. Go read! (It's also in our Weekly Update Archive, if you'd rather.)
The Bungie folks are gone for Thanksgiving, but we still get an update before they go! The whole thing starts with an archived recording of the "New Ways To Play" stream from Tuesday, showcasing some of the new features available in the upcoming Curse of Osiris. And for those running into erroneous error messages on PC, while you're swallowing your turkey, Destiny Player Support is looking for a way to swallow your Buffalo, with some helpful troubleshooting steps to get you back in the game (have you tried configuring your UPnP?). They have also included a list of other known issues, so stand by for some fixes for those!
The short-but-sweet update is wrapped up with Montage-focused MotWs, and a reminder of next Wednesday's stream, which will show off the new loot that you can acquire once the expansion drops on December 5th. A local copy will be available soon (some of us are also gone for the holiday!), and thanks go to CougRon for letting us know about the early update!
The Weekly Update this time around is full of tasty tidbits; dates for the upcoming Twitch livestreams explaining the DLC that drops in December, info on next week's Rally Faction, a reminder that Trials of the Nine launches again tomorrow, details about problems they're working on solving, and more. You should go read it - either on Bungie.net or in our own Weekly Update Archive. (And in case you missed it, a Hotfix dropped this morning - that, too, can be found in our Archives.)
The latest update from Bungie went live 2 days ago, but we're sometimes a little slow here. Doesn't mean you shouldn't read it, though - it's full of tasty info. There's the PC ViDoc if you haven't seen it yet, along with reminders of the new armor coming in Season 2 (and a summary of the changes we can expect to see when that launches). There's a patch note preview for some much more immediate changes (dropping in the next few days, in fact). The Support team has a list of issues they're working on with the PC launch, and there are, as always, fan videos. Go check it all out! (We've had a copy in our Weekly Update Archive since Thursday. Again, sorry for the delay in telling you about it.)
This week at Bungie, the PC launch is in the spotlight. Everything from hardware recommendations to a calendar of the first month's events is covered. For those who are more curious about Bungie's long-term plans with Destiny 2, you'll get more information on today's "Seasons of Destiny" panel at TwitchCon (4:30PM Pacific).
Destiny Player Support has some pretty important info on Hotfixes and known bugs, and the Movies of the Week make great use of Destiny 2's beautiful environments!
Yeah, so it was Thursday yesterday, and Bungie posted another update (and we even localized it then), but now it's Friday, and we're finally getting around to telling you about it. Because we're lazy. But you shouldn't be lazy - you should go read it, because it contains interesting stuff that you probably want to know about. Have you been playing Iron Banner this week? If not, you haven't experienced Distant Shores yet - it's a new map brought over from Destiny 1, and it's quite fun. Are you planning on getting the PC version of Destiny 2? Then you might want to check out the details about launch windows in various countries, and minimum and recommended stats of the hardware you'll need to run it. Have you been waiting for the Prestige raid, and are you worried they'll postpone it again? Don't worry, they won't - you can read why in the update. Are you having issues with the game? The Support team has your back. Do you like watching videos made by fans showing fun aspects of Destiny 2? They're in there, too! Check it all out.
Another week, another update from Bungie - this one has some pretty cool stuff in it! Next week is the first Iron Banner tournament for Destiny 2 - get ready! Also next week, the Prestige version of the Raid drops - harder, minor mechanical changes (why does that sound so ominous?), 'unique rewards'. In two weeks, a Destiny panel at TwitchCon, talking about Seasons. And of course, the reliable support notes and weekly fan vids. Go check it all out! It's in our Weekly Update Archive, as well, of course.
Well, it's almost time for the NEXT weekly update from Bungie, so don't you think it might be time to mention LAST week's? In our defense, we've been playing. A lot. So: what did you miss? Let's see... there was a roadmap for the special activities planned for Month 1 of Destiny 2 (some interesting stuff in there!), details about the Destiny 2 soundtrack, and an explanation, from Luke Smith, about why they chose to go the route they did with shaders this time around, along with the standard Support notes and fan-created videos. All in all, a worthwhile update - we're sorry we haven't mentioned it before now! (If it makes you feel any better, it's been in our Weekly Update Archive since last Thursday.)
Yesterday was Thursday, so Bungie was back with another weekly summary - swing by Bungie.net (or our Weekly Update Archive) to read the details! Gamescom, the Destiny 2 PC Beta, PAX, and the Destiny Companion all received some informational love. There are also standard features, like Support Team notes and fan-created videos - go read!
Yesterday was Thursday, so Bungie posted some info about how the week went, and what to expect in the near future. This one has lots of tasty bits! There is info from both Lars Bakken and Josh Hamrick, explaining the changes made to Destiny 2 in time for the Destiny 2 PC Beta launching on August 28. There's a reminder that this weekend's Trials of Osiris, starting today, is the last one in Destiny 1 - play it this weekend or don't play it any more! There's info from the Destiny Support team, this time focusing on changes that affect streamers most strongly (clarification of last week's info). And of course there's info on the next Bungie Bounty and some fan-submitted vids. Go check it out! As usual, there's a copy in our archive if that's preferable.
It's a quiet week at Bungie, but Cozmo still has an update for you. Highlights include info about the Destiny 2 PC Beta, coming in a few weeks, but there are also the standard features - info from the Support Team, details about the next Bungie Bounty, and fan-made movies. Go check it out! As always, there's a copy in our Update Archive if you'd rather read it here.
This week, Bungie has some info for you, and some warnings. In their weekly info dump, you'll find hardware specs if you're interested in trying out the PC Beta in late August, long with details about the new Exotic weapon for Destiny 2 that was revealed this week. They warn you that this is the last week that Trials of Osiris stats will count towards the Age of Triumph book, and that next week is the last Iron Banner event in Destiny 1. (I guess that means that there won't be any D2 IB after D2 launches... sadness.) There's also quite a bit of info about Destiny 2 Clans, and what you'll need to do if you run a Destiny 1 Clan or Group. And of course, there's the standard stuff - lots of info from the Support team, details about the next Bungie Bounty, and a passel of fan-created videos. Go check it all out! (Our local copy is up, of course.)
In a surprise to nobody, the focus on this week's update from Bungie is the Destiny 2 Beta. There's feedback (for you) from devs, there's info on what they hope to get from the data they're collecting, there's help from the support team for players having a less-than-perfect experience. There's also standard stuff, like the Bungie Bounty coming next week, and fan videos (both D1 and D2 are represented). Go read - either on Bungie.net, or in our own archive!
