  • News Destiny 2 Bundles an Ice Cold Exotic Rifle with Pre-Orders

    Cool?

    Pre-order Destiny 2 and you'll be able to get your hands on Coldheart -- an exotic rifle that appears to fire a beam of icy energy at its target. It looks pretty snazzy and it's probably quite effective in battle. Bungie likes it so much that it even managed to get hold of Ice Ice Baby for its reveal trailer.  We guess the developer...

  • News Destiny 2's Free Roam Patrols Sound a Lot More Interesting

    More of everything

    In IGN's latest Destiny 2 video, we get around eight minutes of patrol gameplay as Bungie talks us through public events, side quests, and the new Lost Sectors, which are basically small dungeons that dot landscapes. For the most part, it all sounds an improvement over the limited amount of stuff you could get up to in...

  • News The Destiny 2 Open Beta Has Been Extended

    But don't expect a smooth ride

    Surprise! Bungie's extended the Destiny 2 beta, so if you haven't given it a shot yet, there's still time. Originally scheduled to end yesterday, the open beta will now last until Tuesday as the developer looks to further test its networking. As such, you can probably expect a few service interruptions as the studio...

  • Video Watch Us Kick Cabal Arse in the Destiny 2 Beta

    Back in the saddle

    Wondering what the Destiny 2 beta is all about? Not sure if you should go and download 15GB of data to your PlayStation 4 just to check it out? Then you're in luck, as regular Push Square stream bloke Alex Stinton played through a good chunk of it so that you don't have to. Watch as he takes on the Cabal in the game's opening...

  • Reminder Destiny 2's Beta Is Open to Everyone Starting Today

    Eyes up, Guardian

    Destiny 2's beta enters its open phase today on PlayStation 4, in case you forgot. The beta itself is relatively small in terms of content -- unless you really like competitive multiplayer -- but it's still well worth a download if you're interested in or at least curious about Bungie's next big hit. The beta weighs in at around...

  • Poll Are You Playing the Destiny 2 Beta This Weekend?

    Cabals deep

    Guardians rejoice: the Destiny 2 open beta is finally here. Or at least, it will be in a few hours depending on when you're reading this article. The beta's been in early access for around three days now and the reception has been a little bit mixed. The usual "Destiny 1.5" criticisms are floating around, and people reckon power...

  • Guide What Time Does Destiny 2's PS4 Beta Begin?

    And how do you get in the Destiny 2 beta?

    Destiny 2 is shaping up to be the biggest game of the year (sorry Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars: Battlefront 2) and Bungie wants to give you an early taste of the title via its PlayStation 4 beta. But what time does the Destiny 2 beta begin? And how do you get in the Destiny 2 PS4 beta? Worry not, eager...

  • News Here's a Quick Glimpse of a Gorgeous New Destiny 2 Planet

    The great unknown

    Nessus -- an all-new planet that you can explore in Destiny 2 -- is looking like a rather interesting location in IGN's latest teaser video. Full of vibrant colours and Cabal that would like nothing more than to smash your head in, the fresh environment will hopefully offer up some engaging exploration. Nessus is just one of...

  • Hands On Destiny 2's Beta Is Familiar Fun on PS4

    Rise up Guardian... Again

    Destiny promised us a massive multiplayer experience brimming with mystery, adventure, and friends set upon the backdrop of our solar system. What we got was a drip fed experience limited by glass ceilings, turbulent development, and a backdrop of only a handful of planets that all felt worryingly similar. That's not to say...

  • News The Destiny 2 Beta Weighs in at Around 13GB on PS4

    Just so you know

    A quick news story here that may yield important information for some: the Destiny 2 beta is about a 13GB download on the PlayStation 4. Those who have early access codes can redeem them now and get it downloaded in time for when it goes live on the 18th July. Everyone else can jump into the open beta on the 21st July...

  • News Destiny 2's Beta Pre-Load Goes Live Today on PS4

    For those who have early access

    If you've pre-ordered Destiny 2 or if you've managed to get your hands on an early access code, you'll be happy to know that starting today, you can pre-load the game's beta. The beta itself goes live on the 18th July, so if you get it downloaded now, you'll be able to jump straight in when it's up. The process isn't...

  • News New Destiny 2 Video Makes Titan Sentinels Sound Like a Lot of Fun

    Shield brothers

    IGN's back with another Destiny 2 video. This time, members of the development team talk about the Sentinel - the new subclass that's available to Titans. Yeah, that's the one we've seen in gameplay footage - the one with the big bloody shield that can be thrown like a frisbee. Overall it's looking like a really fun subclass, and...

  • News Bungie Hopes People Will Complain About 'Too Much Story' in Destiny 2

    Studio bigs up sequel's plot

    The words 'Destiny' and 'story' have never gone together too well, have they? A compelling plot was something that Destiny sorely lacked, and it was only with big expansions like The Taken King and Rise of Iron that Bungie finally looked like it was able to pull some reasonable narrative strings. With Destiny 2, the...

  • News Destiny 2 Hypes Its Incoming PS4 Open Beta with a Trailer

    It's out very soon indeed

    A hype trailer for a public stress test? You beta believe it. Destiny 2's open beta hits PlayStation 4 in just a couple of weeks, on the 21st July. Those who have pre-ordered the release can get in a bit earlier, on the 18th July. The beta's apparently going to consist of the opening story mission, a Strike, and a...

  • News Say Hello to Your New Home in Destiny 2

    Bungie shows new social space

    With The Tower blown to bits at the start of Destiny 2, the Guardians and all of their little mates are forced to start over somewhere new. That somewhere is The Farm, the sequel's key social space that'll act as your main hub area. IGN's managed to sneak a peek at the location in a new video that we've embedded...

  • News Destiny Didn't Have Enough Post-Launch Content, Says Activision CEO

    That'll change with Destiny 2

    Destiny has always been a bit of a weird beast. Back when it first launched - and even before - the shooter was framed as a kind of MMO-lite experience that would be continually updated and improved. In reality, however, we'd dare say that Bungie's creation never quite realised its potential as a 'live' title...

  • News Destiny Dev Had 'No Idea' What the Darkness Actually Was

    No, not the band

    'The Darkness' is a very vague term that Destiny likes to throw at players on a regular basis. Essentially, it's a blanket term that covers all of the bad aliens that you're tasked with shooting - but what actually is the Darkness? Is it some kind of evil energy? Is it an almighty entity that's trying to conquer the universe?...

  • E3 2017 Destiny 2's Release Date Has Been Pushed Forward

    Oh, nice

    Oh, this little nugget of information slipped us by. Talking to Geoff Keighley on his E3 livestream - which we've embedded above - Bungie has revealed that Destiny 2's release date has actually been moved forward a couple of days. The sequel will now launch on the 6th September instead of the 8th. Apparently this will allow for a...

  • E3 2017 Destiny 2's Beta Begins Next Month on PS4

    Pre-order to get early access

    Destiny 2's beta rolls out next month, the game's latest trailer revealed at Sony's E3 2017 press conference last night. Those who pre-order the sequel will get early access to said beta, which begins on the 18th July on PlayStation 4. The beta then enters its open phase on Friday the 21st July so that everyone can...

  • E3 2017 Destiny 2 Reveals Its Big Bald Baddie in New PS4 Trailer

    Our darkest hour

    As you'd expect, Destiny 2 put in a brief appearance at Sony's E3 2017 press conference, firing off a brand new trailer. Highlighting the sequel's big baddie, it's a pretty slick video. To be totally honest with you, we can't wait to shoot this guy to pieces come September. Are you looking forward to Destiny 2? Start...

  • News Destiny 2 Beta Date Coming Our Way at E3 2017

    Bungie's gonna spill the beans

    Now that we've seen Destiny 2 in action and the game has a release date, many Guardians want to know the answer to just one question: when's the open beta happening? Bungie has already confirmed that a public test will be available before the sequel launches in September, but it's yet to give a precise date. That's...

  • News Sony Will Publish Destiny 2 for PS4 in Japan

    Platform holder to bring shooter overseas

    Much like the first game, Sony will act as Destiny 2's publisher in Japan. The platform holder's said that it will fully localise the first-person shooter on Activision's behalf, adding both subtitles and voiceover in the nation's native tongue. It's obviously no surprise that it's going the extra mile given...

  • News Destiny 2 Will Have an Open Beta Later This Year

    Gameplay reveal also incoming

    Now that the Destiny 2 talk can take place without having to tiptoe around rumours and speculation, we should be hearing much, much more about Bungie's sequel over the coming months. The developer is promising a gameplay reveal on the 18th May, and later this year, you'll be able to try the shooter out for yourself...

  • News Destiny 2's Full Reveal Trailer Makes a Last Stand

    PS4 beta also confirmed

    Destiny 2 is happening folks, and its first full trailer is here as promised. It isn't gameplay - we're sure plenty of that will be coming later - but it's a pretty rousing video all the same. With the Earth's last city destroyed and all of your resources gone, Guardians must join together to stop the Cabal onslaught. It's do...

  • News Destiny 2 Will Have Timed Exclusive Content on PS4

    Marketing partners

    As expected, Destiny 2 will secure exclusive content on the PlayStation 4. Sony appears to once again be the primary marketing partner for Bungie's upcoming first-person shooter, which means you can probably expect bundles and much more. It's not clear which goodies will be exclusive to the PS4 version of the game, but the...

  • News Wow, Destiny 2's Brilliant Teaser Trailer Tells a Better Story Than Destiny Itself

    Pew pew

    Now we're cooking, Bungie! Out of nowhere, the developer's dropped a teaser trailer for Destiny 2. The short clip is funny, charming, and has certainly piqued our interest - three things that the story of the original Destiny didn't manage to pull off. Has the property finally found its voice and tone? We sure hope so. The full, official...

  • News Destiny 2 Just Got Officially Announced By the Way

    In case you missed it

    This, folks, is what we call in the industry an 'anti-climax'. Activision has officially announced Destiny 2, though it basically just uploaded a logo to the franchise's official Twitter account. Yes, the '2' really is as big as on the leaked poster – like we said at the time, we assume that the publisher wants to clearly...

  • Rumour Destiny 2 Drops on 8th September Claims Leaked Poster

    Update: Announcement proably not incoming today

    Destiny 2 will gear up and form a strike team starting 8th September if a leaked retail poster is to be believed. The image shows artwork of three Guardians alongside the game's logo and an 8th September release date. That's a Friday, and while big new games sometimes drop earlier in the week to...

  • News This Isn't the Destiny Trailer We Were Hoping For

    Not so triumphant

    Leaks from earlier in the day suggested that an official Destiny 2 reveal was incoming, but instead, Bungie's dropped a launch trailer for the Age of Triumph event, which goes live in the original Destiny on the 28th March. Bah! Still, it's a pretty rousing trailer. The Age of Triumph sees the return of past Raids with new...

  • Rumour Destiny 2 Beta Blasts onto PS4 Around June

    Just in time for an E3 announcement

    Leaked earlier today via a legit-looking poster, Destiny 2 will apparently launch on the 8th September. A second poster has also suggests that PlayStation 4 beta access will be yours if you pre-order the upcoming sequel. Again, it all seems pretty legitimate. Weighing in on the leak over on Twitter,

  • News Destiny 2 and Final Destiny Event Detailed By Bungie

    A new age is upon us

    Bungie's broken its silence on what's in store for Destiny - namely the shooter's final live event and, of course, Destiny 2, which is due out later this year. Let's get the former out of the way first: 'Age of Triumph' will be Destiny's last hurrah, an event that the developer will be explaining in further detail through a...

  • News Destiny's Next Big Update Is Due In Spring

    Keeping things ticking

    Following Destiny's The Dawning event, which took place over much of December and early January, it feels like the social shooter has once again fallen off to the side. We've seen this happen time and time again with Bungie's ongoing project, but with Destiny 2 supposedly due later in the year, everyone's wondering how the...

  • News Destiny's Halloween Event Returns Next Week with Spooky Spoils

    Lost but not forgotten

    Destiny's annual Halloween event is back for its second year starting from the 25th October. Named The Festival of the Lost, you'll be able to partake in special quests and acquire seasonal loot, including those excellently creepy paper masks. You'll have until the 8th November to get stuck in. Give Bungie's rather well put...

  • News Destiny PS4 Patch Increases Loot Light Levels, Adds Hard Mode Raid

    And it's out now

    Destiny's latest update is out now on PlayStation 4, rejigging Bungie's shooter so that the progression system takes the newly introduced hard mode Raid into account. The light level cap now sits at 400, with engrams getting a boost across the board. If you were starting to get sick of the very gradual grind, you may want to dive...

  • News Destiny: Rise of Iron Raid Goes Heroic Later This Month

    Best get grinding

    So you've completed The Wrath of the Machine Raid in Destiny: Rise of Iron - that's a job well done, but the grind isn't over yet. As many players will already be aware, the Heroic version of the Raid is incoming, and Bungie's slapped a date on it - or at least we think that it has. Offering a more difficult edition of the...

  • Rumour Destiny 2 Shooting For a Fresh Audience, Will Be a Totally New Game

    Say goodbye to your exotics

    Looking at Destiny from the perspective of a big publisher like Activision and an ambitious studio like Bungie, Destiny 2's inevitable fate is perhaps easy to determine. If the franchise is to expand and thrive, it can't just keep relying on yearly expansions and, if you'll pardon the pun, sticking to its guns. With...

  • Poll What Do You Think of Destiny: Rise of Iron?

    Is it hot stuff?

    Ah, trusty old Destiny - a game that's pretty much the perfect fodder for a Friday poll such as this. The shooter's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, launched earlier this week on PlayStation 4, and its brand new six-player Raid is releasing later today. Judging by the amount of buzz that the DLC has generated around the 'net, it's...

  • News Bungie Teases Destiny: Rise of Iron Raid with New Trailer

    Not long to go

    We hope that you've spent the last two days grinding for better gear in Destiny: Rise of Iron, because you're going to need it soon enough. The expansion's incoming six-player Raid, named Wrath of the Machine, goes live at 10:00AM PT / 18:00PM BST on the 23rd September, and Bungie's released a slick teaser trailer to remind you of...

  • Hands On Destiny: Rise of Iron Seems Like Another Solid Expansion

    Bringing the fire

    We've sunk about 10 hours into Destiny: Rise of Iron, and in that time, we've completed the main set of story quests, tackled several side objectives, and jumped about ten light levels. We've perused some super cool looking armour, glanced at a few tempting exotics, killed more Splicers than we care to count, and spent minutes at...

  • News Rise of Iron Launch Leads to Destiny Server Issues

    Heavy metal

    Don't worry too much if you can't sign in to Destiny, because you're not the only one. The shooter's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, launched just a couple of hours ago, and it sounds as though the sheer amount of people jumping online has knocked the game's servers out of kilter. Apparently, players are being queued in order to help...

  • News Destiny: Rise of Iron Launch Trailer Turns Up the Heat

    Forged in the fire

    Much like The Taken King before it, Rise of Iron is looking to breathe a lot of new life into Destiny. The PlayStation 4 expansion launches next week on the 20th September, and Bungie's released a rather good trailer to get you in the mood. Highlighting the add-on's story, which features Saladin, the last surviving Iron Lord,...

  • News Destiny Down for 8 Hours of Maintenance Starting Now

    Going dark

    We hope that you weren't planning on playing some Destiny tonight, as the servers are being taken down and prepped for the game's next update for eight whole hours, starting now. The title will be playable again at around 00:00AM BST / 16:00PM PT, but you'll obviously have to download the aforementioned patch before you can hop back...
