The future of Destiny 2 is set to be revealed this coming Tuesday, June 5th. Bungie will be hosting a live reveal showcasing Destiny - Year 2, including what will probably be a large-scale expansion pack due to launch this September.
Bungie’s missteps with Destiny 2 since launch have been many and well documented, although it’s taking steps to remedy the sour feeling among the community by outlining its future update plans. The primary fix here is Destiny 2’s loot box equivalent. Bungie’s now going to make it easier to obtain in-game rewards without handing over more cold, hard cash.
Activision is in a boisterous mood this week, announcing that Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 are the top two selling console games in North America based on revenue for the entirety of 2017. In addition, Destiny 2 has become the biggest PC launch in Activision’s history, with the sequel already outselling the lifetime sales of the original across all platforms.
Weapons at the ready, it's time for a stand-off between two shooter champions in Day 3 of 12 Games for Christmas. Sales sensation PUBG has come out of nowhere to become the biggest PC game this year. If you haven't got it yet, it needs to be under your Christmas tree. The other is Destiny 2, an absolute force in co-op PvP action. Which would you rather receive as a gift, PUBG or Destiny 2?
Bungie certainly ruffled a few tender Warlock’s feathers when it made pre-existing content from Destiny 2’s base game unplayable to those who didn’t pick up the new Curse of Osiris expansion. After going radio silent for a while, the Destiny dev team has broken cover and explained both this move and how it plans to appease fans.
Returning Destiny players probably won’t be all that surprised by this, but the new Curse of the Osiris expansion for Destiny 2 locks players who only own the base game out of playing pre-existing content from Destiny 2 that was originally playable.
Destiny 2 got off to a hell of a strong start, yet it would be fair to say that interest has cooled rapidly. In an effort to stoke the flames of passion ahead of the launch of Destiny 2’s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, Bungie is now offering a free trial which basically includes the first half of the game, as well as the PvP Crucible mode.
Anyone remember Destiny 2? Well, Bungie does. It hosted a live stream look at Destiny 2’s first expansion yesterday evening, detailing the assorted goodies that it hopes will justify a purchase. Destiny 2: Expansion I - Curse of Osiris will take players to Mercury for the first time (outside of PvP), as well as the distinctly Diablo-style Infinite Forest.
The latest GeForce 388.31 WHQL graphics card driver has arrived. The headline addition is the day one Game Ready performance optimisation for Star Wars Battlefront 2, but the really juicy perks are actually for Destiny 2.
Having banned hundreds of players from Destiny 2 by mistake, and calling out claims from those who had been banned as "internet BS", Bungie has climbed down from its ivory tower and admitted a number of players were banned in error.
Not ones to be outdone by Nvidia’s recent driver release, AMD has got out its own Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.2 driver with some staggering performance gains. Unlike Team Green as well, AMD has backed it up with hard figures, although for unreleased titles it makes for a difficult point of comparison.
