This Week At Bungie - 10/11/18

Festival of the Lost Super Energy

This (last) week at Bungie, Festival of the Lost returns to Destiny! And more importantly, paper masks are back as well! Grab the free chicken mask, and prepare your wallet for a three-mask Bundle that will be available from the Bungie store (both digital and physical!).
And speaking of your wallet; if you have yet to buy any of the Destiny 2 DLCs, you'll instantly save $20 if you decide to jump in starting on October 16th, as Curse of Osiris and Warmind will be included with your purchase of Forsaken. Wondering what jumping in early entitles you to? Bungie's got you covered with a couple of exclusive veteran emotes and shader/emblem combo! By Sunbreaker's hammer, what a savings!

And because we clearly don't have enough great things coming on the 16th, Iron Banner returns, and Saladin's bringing double and triple Valor with it, along with Powerful Engrams in every bounty (better start cashing in those sick days)! Warm up your Telesto or preferred Crucible Crutch weapon of choice, because Saladin's selling the fantastic Claws of the Wolf pulse rifle.

Wrapping up the update, Bungie's got some Tweets in several languages (Has recibido un TrĂ¡nsito de Borde!), server maintenance scheduled for several timezones, known errors across several platforms, and music videos from several genres!
As always, you can read the local copy available here.

Going under (and through)

Once again, Bungie posted an update on their doings on Thursday, and once again, though it made it into our Weekly Update Archive in a timely fashion, it did NOT make it here, to the front page. Doesn't mean you shouldn't read it, though. It's full of goodies. We're introduced to the Shattered Throne, along with a new Crucible mode, Breakthrough. We're given encouraging news about Masterwork Cores and Exotic drop rates. We're treated to a postmortem of the first Season 4 Iron Banner tournament. We're shown a gorgeous gallery of art, from High Moon artists that worked on Forsaken. And there's a chance that your Destiny artwork can be immortalized in Bungie's Holiday cards. Go read, go watch! (While you're at it, we forgot to mention last week's, too - though, again, it was up in our Weekly Update Archive the same day it was released on B.net. It has more info  about Breakthrough, including screenshots of new maps. It's got time-sensitive info  - now expired - about Gambit, and EGX, a gathering that took place in Birmingham, UK last week. And it's got info about the team(s) that beat the Last Wish raid first. Sorry!)

A Whole Passel of Updates

Looks like it's been almost a month since we posted a 'This Week At Bungie' on the front page. This is attributable to two things: PAX, and Forsaken. We're sorry. You should read all of the updates Bungie has posted, though, because they're FULL of info. On August 30, they told us that Forsaken was coming, and gave us a roadmap for the next year or so. (They also told you to visit them at PAX, but you either did, or it's too late.) On September 6, they teased the Raid, they offered free music, and they told us about issues that cropped up with Forsaken's launch. And yesterday, there was more Raid info, a gorgeous gallery of Forsaken artwork, info about the upcoming Iron Banner, and the future of the Bungie Bounty program. (Among other things.) Although these didn't make our front page until now, they've been in our Update Archive since the day they each went live (August 30 | September 6 | September 13). Definitely look them over. Lots and lots of good stuff. We'll try and do better.

This Week At Bungie - 08/23/18

This Week At Bungie, Cayde's been having a rough time. If you're staying dark for Forsaken (ten days to go!), then you might not want to watch the Last Stand of the Gunslinger video that was shown off at Gamescom. If you don't mind sneak peeks, then you'll be happy to know that Gambit will be available for all Destiny 2 players for one day on Sept. 1st, no Forsaken needed.

Once Forsaken launches on Sept. 4th (after a bit of downtime for maintenance), you have ten days to gear up for the new Raid, "Last Wish", which gives you a bit more time to try to get closer to that 600 Power-level cap (it's a bit of a hike!). And speaking of gaining more power, Design Lead Josh Hamrick (Josh 'em Rick?) stops by to fill us in on how the new Mod system works, and how you will be able to acquire them. We also get a glimpse of next week's patch notes, if you're curious about how some exotic and ability behaviors are changing.

And Speaking of changes, Destiny Player Support has a pretty extensive list of what's coming and going with Tuesday's patch (this is your last weekend to go for the Trials of the Nine Achievement/Trophy!). The whole thing is wrapped up with a filter-heavy montage and a mood-heavy time-lapse painting of Cayde. It's the meatiest update in a while, so if you want a read that's a bit easier on the eyes, check our local copy of the update. And thanks to cheapLEY for the heads up!

This Week at Bungie - 8/16/18

This Week At Bungie, they want you to know about all sorts of things. They're showing off Gambit at Gamescom, in Germany, so there's some answers about Infamy, the upcoming ranking system for Gambit players. Meanwhile, they want to make you feel better about Glory ranks. They also want to let you know about changes in the social systems in Destiny. They're highlighting a new, pretty fun-sounding mode in Crucible Labs. (Scorch Cannons for Everyone!) They have lots of info from the Player Support team (including some great stuff about what you DON'T have to finish by August 28). And they have a bunch of fan content - videos, a fantastic group self-portrait by fan artists, Nightfall scores, the works! Go read it, either at Bungie.net, or in our Archive.

This Week At Bungie - 08/02/18

The weekly update Bungie posted yesterday is chock-full of fun content. There's fan art they tweeted earlier this week, there is a fascinating infographic with aggregate numbers for the community (did you know that Destiny players have completed more than 77 million Escalation Protocol waves?), there are details about items that will be retired once Forsaken drops next month (along with items that will not), there's a heads-up about the Combat Reveal stream happening next week, there's lots of stuff from the Player Support team (known issues, as well as reminders), and there's fan video content.

This Week At Bungie - 07/26/2018

This 'we're a few days late on the Weekly Update' thing is getting old... but we're a few days late. Again. You should go read it, because it's good stuff. There's a video showing off new weapons and gear from Forsaken, there's info on a PvP reveal stream taking place in a bit over a week, there are details about the upcoming iteration of Crucible Labs, there is a reminder of the Development Roadmap update last week, there's a peek at the upcoming activities planned for August, there's a preview of a hardcover Grimoire Anthology, and more. It's beefy! Go check it out. (Either at B.net, or right here in our Archive.)

It's a busy week, for Destiny 2. Update 1.2.3 launched on Tuesday, bringing a raft of new features and improvements. The last Faction Rally of Season 3 is currently happening; if you want your last shot at those sweet Exotic Catalysts, this is the time to earn them. And Bungie is gearing up for Solstice of Heroes, dropping in less than 2 weeks. So check out the What's New post from them, for full details! The World's First teams for both Prestige Lairs are honored. A wrapup of GuardianCon makes an appearance, via Twitter.

This Week At Bungie - 07/12/2018

Although it made it into our local archive last Thursday, it's only today that we're reminding you that Bungie posted a new weekly update several days ago. (Hey, it's summer. Sometimes it's hard to make it inside!) It's worth a read; there are details about the upcoming return of Destiny Bounties, reminders of the Forsaken content you can find in Game Informer, a preview of the changes dropping in update 1.2.3 tomorrow, a heads-up about the future of the Prismatic Matrix, notes from the Destiny Player Support team, and fan-chosen, fan-made videos.

This Week At Bungie - 6/28/2018

Yesterday was Thursday, so Bungie posted a news update - and it's worth reading. (You can, of course, read it here, in our Archive, as well.) It contains lots of interesting stuff: there's a post-E3 report from several members of the 'Away Team' that was in LA a couple of weeks ago. There's a preview of some Roadmap updates coming this summer (including, specifically, details about Crucible changes coming with the 1.2.3 update due on July 17). There's a bunch of information about the Prestige variants of both Raid Lairs, also dropping in the July update. There's some fantastic info about changes to Collections coming in Forsaken, in September (and what it means to you NOW). And, of course, there are reports from the Destiny Player Support team, fan-created videos, and Nightfall high scores. All in all, some real meat to sink your teeth into!

Wait, is it Monday already?

Last Thursday, Bungie (as is their custom) posted their weekly update on their website. And we (as is our norm) posted a local copy in our Archive. But I (as is my norm) forgot to mention it to you, our readers, here on the front page. Sorry! If you haven't already, you should go read it - plenty of good stuff, much of it starting tomorrow. Two weeks after the season's first Faction Rally ended, the second one starts! Crazy, right? There's also a summary of some Exotic Armor tweaks coming next month, a heads-up that a bunch of old Halo data on Bungie servers is going away this week, and the standard stuff - Destiny Player Support, videos, Nightfall scores. Go read!

This Week At Bungie - 6/14/2018

A new weekly roundup went live at Bungie.net yesterday (and in our Weekly Update Archive here) - as you might expect, it does a decent job of recapping the reveals from E3, with teases of the new goodness that's coming in September with Forsaken... but there's other stuff, too. As we all know at this point, Dead Orbit won this Faction Rally, but now we have numbers. Iron Banner is making its next return on Tuesday - you've got 7 days of 6v6 Control to continue your progress on Season 3 Ornaments. The third episode of the Warmind comic will drop next Friday (you can catch up at comics.bungie.net if you missed either of the first 2). You can get information on how to buy a Bungie Pride shirt to support the LGBTQUIA community. And, of course, you can get the latest updates from the Destiny Player Support team and see the week's best fan-created vids. Go read it!

This Week At Bungie - 6/07/2018

Well, yesterday was Thursday, so Bungie posted their Weekly Update - and as you might expect, it focuses a lot on the  recent Forsaken reveal. If you missed it, they've got the new ViDoc, and an archived copy of the livestream reveal discussion. There's also a bullet list if you don't have time for videos. 

There's an updated Roadmap, listing some of the goodies coming in 2.0.0 in September, along with details of the Annual Pass, a new mode of content distribution. There's a recap of the first week of Crucible Labs, and some info on what's coming next. There's the standard report from the Destiny Player Support team, with details about bugs and enhancements. And there are fan-created videos. Go read it - either on Bungie.net, or in our Weekly Update Archive!

The weekly news from Bungie is live on their site (and in our Archive), and while there's plenty to read (including details of stuff that didn't quite work out in the latest patch), the big news is next week's Faction Rally. Not only is it changing from what we're used to, but the rewards are... significant. Go give it a read!

This Week at Bungie - 5/17/2018

As usual, we're running behind in telling you about Bungie's weekly Update from last week (it's been in the local archive since they posted it, but getting a notice here has taken almost a week - sorry). It's absolutely worth the read, if you haven't done so yet. There is information about changes coming on May 29, some answers to common questions about the new Crucible ranking system, info about the Iron Banner we're currently in the middle of, details on the current and near-future status of the Destiny Companion, and standard features (Destiny Player Support comments, fan vids, Bungie Bounty info). Go give it a read! And sorry again it's so late.

This Week At Bungie - 05/10/2018

This Week At Bungie 5/16/2018
Totally this week at Bungie (humor us), Warmind finally launched!
Apart from some quick info on the new raid lair, you can get a look at some of the new gear that you can earn from Trials of the Nine (and a reminder of the neat ornaments that you can earn by leveling your Valor and Glory ranks).
For those who follow Bungie on Twitch, keep your eyes open for a new stream today, as Bungie will be hopping into Private Matches against members of the Destiny Community Podcast (including a 1v1 between DCP's Popebear, and Bungie's own Dmg04).
As with all new expansions, Destiny Player Support has a laundry list of known issues, and advice on workarounds while they get them sorted. Once you're done locating your favorite bug on the list, enjoy the two highlighted videos, which showcase both impressive skill, and humorous fails. And as always, you can catch the newest update in our local archive.

This Week At Bungie - 5/03/2018

This Week at Bungie was posted yesterday (it WAS Thursday, after all), and it's a collection of goodies that all Destiny players should check out! As the release of Warmind approaches, Bungie is making sure you've got the background you need to properly enjoy it. The update points out new weblore released as a Narrative Preview, the new comic introducing Ana Bray, and the Developer Insights videos they've been releasing, if you missed them. There's a preview of the changes coming in the patch we'll see on Tuesday, a recap of the Exotic changes they've been teasing for a couple of weeks (including one for the D.A.R.C.I. Rifle I hadn't seen before), and a summary of the bigger changes that 1.2.0 will bring. There's also a preview of some changes coming to Eververse, changes that will increase your control over the gear you receive from Eververse. And of course, there are standard features (Destiny Player Support notes, fan-created videos) to round out the offering. As always, you can read it locally, if you choose.

This Week At Bungie - 04/18/2018

Spelunkers
Alright, since Claude doesn't like it when we're late, how's about an early This Week At Bungie this time?

This week, we get a reminder that the changes to Crucible are ongoing (how's the 6v6 treating you? Raga wants to know!), so bear with Bungie as they tweak issues like spawns and bugs that may pop up. Speaking of changes, Senior Designer Jon Weisnewski drops by to show that there's some pretty clear progress (with examples!) of the reworks coming to many of the exotics. If the three showcased weapons are anything to go by, it looks like it'll be way more fun to change up your loadout!

And while you can sprint to your vault to try out the weapon changes soon, Bungie is looking to slow you down in other areas. Senior Designer Daniel Auchenpaugh gives an explanation on what Bungie's plans are for progression in Destiny as a whole, and what players can expect when the game's second expansion (Warmind) drops. The idea, as he explains, is to "bring back meaning and accomplishment to achieving the Power cap". It's a bit of a doozy, so be sure to read it thoroughly before sounding off!

The update is wrapped up with a reminder that Bungie will be having a few prominent community members over at the studio for a sit-down, Destiny Player Support details the changes that came with this week's Iron Banner, and a couple of entertaining montages (unlike Vesper of Radius, Khepri's Horn is no joke!). As always, a local copy will be available for lighter reading (if it's not up yet, blame Claude).

This Week At Bungie - 04/12/2018

Yeah, we're late. Again. Blame Korny. (Always blame Korny. It's easier that way.) Anyway... this one's worth reading. If you missed the Destiny 2 Roadmap update earlier this week, it's summarized here. Why should you read it? Well, it announces Warmind, the next expansion, due May 8. (Bungie will be providing more details starting April 24.) It also discusses some season 3 gameplay changes (PvE will be more challenging, in some instances), the Men in Kilts fundraiser (some cool stuff available for folks helping out on this one!), the Gauntlet Tabletop fundraiser (also with the cool stuff!),  next week's 6v6 Iron Banner (YAY), and the standard stuff (Destiny Player Support, fan vids). Check it all out! It's in our Archive, if you'd rather read it there.

This Week At Bungie... and a Late-Breaking Story

Okay, big news first: 6v6 Iron Banner has been postponed, due to a late-breaking issue discovered in the studio very recently. Rumble will go live next Tuesday in its place. More details can be found in Cozmo's post on the Bungie.net forums.

With that out of the way, let's get to yesterday's studio update (which, of course, features that upcoming Iron Banner). There's a summary of the recent Mayhem Bungie Bounty, a Q&A with questions sourced from Twitter and answers from Josh Hamrick and Kevin Yanes, a teaser about an upcoming Community Summit, and the normal features - commentary from the Destiny Player Support team, Nightfall scores, fan movies. (The movies are all pretty cool this week.) Go give it a read! As always, in addition to Bungie.net, you can find it in our Weekly Update Archive.

This Week At Bungie - 3/29/2018

The Bungie studio update this week looks ahead to the next update, 1.2.0, coming next month. There's a little teaser of some Crucible gameplay with Sturm and Drang... and wow, do they look amazing now! There's also an update coming to the Companion app, a new Bungie Bounty (and a new emblem for successful participants), and the standard features - info from the Support team, info about Nightfall high scores this week, and fan videos. The Calus ramp-up continues - this week, Calus is killed in a single phase, by a 2-man team. I'm inspired! Go read - either on Bungie.net, or in our own archive.

This Week At Bungie - 3/22/2018

dmg04 is back with another update for the fans about what's going on in the studio right now - and it looks like it's mostly focused on Update 1.1.4, coming out next Tuesday. Nightfall rewards, competitive upgrades, Banhammer improvements, nad more - go check out the list! Also, I was impressed last week with the clutch Calus takedown by a single player after his teammates died. It's got nothing on this week's version... a full team (minus 1) dies during a PRESTIGE run, the living guy revives a single buddy, then realizes he's got no ammo of any kind. His buddy dies again... and he takes down Calus with a series of melee attacks. I mean... c'mon. Go check out the whole thing! In addition to the copy on Bungie.net, you can find our copy in the Archives here.
