The last two This Week At Bungie articles over at Bungie.net have been notably forthcoming about upcoming changes to various Destiny features and activities.
In their April 23rd update, Bungie talked about creating a more rewarding Trials of Osiris and delved relatively deeply into some of Destiny 2's current and upcoming safeguards against cheaters. Although Bungie can't share all their anti-cheat details, it was interesting to learn that they are partnering with other high profile companies like Valve to combat certain forms of cheating.
This week, Bungie first put a spotlight as to the reasons why Titans have been fairing so well in the Guardian Games. Turns out Titans are just trying harder than the other classes. Bungie then spent some time talking about their plans to keep more seasonal activities around for newer players even as the game continues to move forward. Having hand picked seasonal weapons show up in normal activities like Strikes and the Crucible seemed like a nice win.
Really, the last two weekly updates have been pretty packed with useful info beyond just the aforementioned updates. Bungie's charitable efforts to assist with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic are a nice read, for instance. You can check both updates out at the links above, or head on over to our highly searchable Bungie Weekly Updates Archive.
This morning, Bungie announced a new series of bounties and challenges in which Titans can compete to prove, once and for all, that they, and not so much Hunters and Warlocks, are the wall against which The Darkness breaks.
But donâ€™t worry non-Titans, all classes get access to new ships, sparrows, weapons, and cool class themed Ghosts. The Titan Games kick off April 21st and runs through May 11th after which Titan banners will, surely, decorate The Tower for the rest of the year. Oh, and thereâ€™s a cool looking physical reward for players to earn, as well!
For more info, check out Bungieâ€™s Titan Games page, or watch the announcement video below.
IGN dropped it's article for today, and it's a doozy! Four new videos showing off Control, a new map called Endless Vale, Sentinel Titan, and Voidwalker Warlock. You can go to their site to check them out there, or I've embedded the videos below.
Sage, Sandbox Extraordinaire at Bungie, has written up a preview of the patch coming next week focusing on the changes being made to Titan subclasses, most of which are concentrated on the Sunbreaker class. There's data, charts and more to back up Bungie's direction - go read!
Meggon Woods let us know that she'd created this costume for Jaxx - first one she ever made! The helmet and the ghost are handmade. Fantastic!
Although my wallet's been dreading it, my heart's been waiting impatiently for it! Hedge retweeted an announcement by 3A concerning a highly-articulated (and steeply-priced) Titan action figure. It looks beautiful - I can't wait to see more high quality licensed stuff like this for Destiny. More photos and info here.
As time goes on, players find new and entertaining ways of using the tools Bungie made for us to do things that are... simply unexpected. In recent days, we've seen Titan Defender Bubbles used to
1) Dominate in the Crucible (thanks, GeneralVagueness)
2) Defeat Crota, on Hard Mode, with just a single sword (thanks, Cody Miller)
3) Defeat the entire Crota's End Raid without firing a shot (thanks, INSANEdrive)
(This is in 3 parts; I've embedded only the first one. The rest of the links can be found in the original reddit post.)
Is there anything the bubble CAN'T do? Titans forever!
Hedgem0ny always gathers great art and fanart from Bungie games in his Twitter feed. A couple of recent highlights came from DeviantArt in the form of "Titan" by TheBFG121 and "Destiny Fan Art" (okay... not the most creative name but a beautiful picture nonetheless) by lerms.
Hedgem0ny unearthed (via his Twittter) a nice piece of fanart by Dexter Orszagh. Move your eyes slightly lower to see it.
