[embedded content] Before the Age of Triumph event can begin at 10am PT/1pm ET on Tuesday, March 28, Bungie will release Destiny update 2.6.0, which fixes several issues, updates Crucible Daily Bounties to be more inclusive, and more. Because the update doesn’t go live until 10am PT on Tuesday, the Weekly Heroic Strike and Weekly Nightfall Playlists will be unavailable for eight hours beginning at 2am PT. Since they’re unable to restrict access to the Weekly Crucible Playlist during those eight hours, Bungie offered up this warning: If a player were to complete an activity in either of these playlists prior to accepting Update 2.6.0, they would not be able to earn new rewards from the Updated Age of Triumph Ritual Playlists. This includes Blue Flames and Radiant Light from the Nightfall playlist, and one Treasure of Ages from the Weekly Heroic Strike playlist. Full patch notes for Update 2.6.0 will be released when the patch goes live, but in their latest weekly update, Bungie gave a preview of what to expect: Known Issues Being Addressed Local Network Fireteam Issues SIVA Key Fragment Issues Skeleton Key Issues Confirmed Changes Updated Crucible Daily Bounties to be more inclusive, no longer requiring specific READ FULL STORY…

According to a leaked poster, Destiny 2 is releasing on September 8. It also appears as though there will be a beta on PlayStation 4 prior to launch, likely in June. Apparently leaked from GameStop Italy, and posted on Italian website Lega Network (via NeoGAF), the poster doesn’t include much more information about Destiny 2, though it does feature the PlayStation logo, suggesting that the Sony/Destiny partnership will continue. Following the leak of the poster, Eurogamer said they’ve heard that the beta will take place in June. Additionally, their sources have indicated that the poster is legitimate. Kotaku, meanwhile, has heard that Destiny 2 will be officially announced today, and it’s also coming to PC, in addition to consoles. Last we heard from Activision and Bungie is that Destiny 2 releases in fall 2017, and your power, possessions, Eververse-related items, and currency from the first game won’t transfer over to the sequel. The final live event for the first Destiny, Age of Triumph, is set to begin on March 28. [Source: Lega Network, Imgur, NeoGAF, Eurogamer, Kotaku] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
As has become an annual Bungie tradition, a retailer has leaked info on the next big Destiny release. It’s not much, but here’s your first look at the marketing materials for Destiny 2, a video game that we will no doubt come up with all sorts of pithy ways to describe over the next few years. Advertisement And, yes, it’s real. We hear Bungie plans to announce Destiny 2 today. The above poster, leaked by an Italian retailer, hints at an upcoming beta. A second leaked poster with the same key art promises that the game will be out on Friday, September 8, although that may only be the European release. (Often, games come out in North America on Tuesday and then in Europe on Friday.) Both posters show three helmet-less humans, one of whom is holding what appears to be a Suros-branded shotgun. Advertisement From what we’ve heard, Destiny 2 aims to feel drastically different than its predecessors in several ways. The plan has long been to build planet regions in Destiny 2 that feel less barren than the ones in Destiny, with READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

[embedded content] Bungie has revealed a few details on Age of Triumph, its upcoming major content update for Destiny, including details on the game’s new weekly rituals through its latest blog post and its recent livestream.

The new content includes a new set of Weekly Featured Activities from The Director, new Daybreak Strikes that also include the Mayhem modifier from the Crucible. Additionally, during the event, players will also be able to collect up to three Evererse boxes each week. There will also be new quests from the Speaker covering all of the game’s content areas including story missions, Strikes, Patrols, and PVP. Two new weekly bounties may also be accepted from Lord Shaxx. The Age of Triumph will be released on March 28 and will be the last major content update for Destiny before Bungie launches the game’s sequel…
This emote will cost most of your in-game currency. For Honor’s all about deadly duels and flashy sword fights. Oh, and micro-transactions. With the release of new emotes, some fans are less than pleased with their high price. Advertisement In For Honor, you’re able to acquire an in-game currency called steel to spend on a variety of cosmetics and upgrades. Special character skins and particle effects are just some of the options but there’s also emotes. As first noted by Eurogamer, the latest round of combat emotes are a tad expense. Normally, emotes will cost anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 steels. While you can gain steel by playing matches and completing challenges, players are also able to purchase it. 5,000 costs $4.99. The latest emotes cost 7,000 steel. I mean, I guess it’s kind of elegant? Players eager for the new emotes have two options. The first is to grind matches for steel. Matches will yield a pittance of steel, sometimes as small as 15 units. If you’re not completing challenges, you’d need to complete over 450 matches to unlock an emote. The only other option READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Destiny, a video game in which you can see mountains and then go there, has always been full of mysteries. Mysteries such as: Can you glitch through the entire Vault of Glass? It took intrepid raider djxyz0 more than two years, but thanks to ingenuity and a whole lot of trial and error, he’s made it happen. Djxyz0, a member of the /raidsecrets Reddit community, is part of a dedicated group of Destiny raiders devoted to picking apart the game’s riddles and secrets. Some of those mysteries were intended by the developers at Bungie—is there a secret chest???—while others are very much unintentional, like Djxyz0’s quest to glitch through the map of Destiny’s Vault of Glass and make it all the way to the throne room. It’s an incredible journey, involving quite a few precise jumps (and falls) as well as some Sparrow acrobatics that would make Amanda Holliday proud. This video (h/t SerfaBoy) shows how Djxyz0 pulled it off: With Destiny winding down this year as we all wait for Destiny 2 in the fall, is there any more perfect ending than someone glitching through a whole raid?

[embedded content] Destiny fans, the game’s time in the spotlight is almost up, and Bungie is marking that occasion with Destiny’s Age of Triumph live event; the last live update Destiny 1 era content that’s set to launch later this month. To whet gamers’ appetites, Bungie is hosting a livestream for Age of Triumph this coming March 15, Wednesday, at 10 a.m. PT. It will feature Bungie Senior Designers, Tim Williams and Joe Sifferman, and is called “Rituals and Strikes.” I’ll leave it up to you to guess what will be shown during the livecast. You can watch the Destiny Age of Triumph livestream on Bungie’s Twitch channel, or the livestream tune-in video here. While this is a big step in (kind of) closing Destiny’s first big chapter, Bungie has said that they’ll continue to post Destiny “for the foreseeable future.” Of course, once Destiny 2 is announced, expect the majority of Bungie’s developers — and Destiny players — to migrate to the next big thing.

From there, Jafari’s tweets led him to agree to defend his positions during a conversation with professional streamer Steve Bonnell, better known as Destiny, on Twitch.
