No time to explain
A lot has changed for Destiny 2 in the three years since release. After launching as a full-priced product, it decided to take the free-to-play route in late 2019. After teaming up with Activision to bring both the original game and this sequel to market, Bungie cut ties with the publisher to do it alone. And after expanding the...
Bet the farm
Republished on Wednesday 29th August 2018: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of September's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. Three years after the release of Destiny, here we are with a whole new title that's framed as a direct sequel. Hopping to a fresh release was Bungie's...
Ever since splitting from Activision, Bungie has been talking a big game. The launch of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep represents the moment where the developer fully embraces the MMO concept, clearly defines its core pillars, and lays the groundwork for a better looter shooter experience. It’s a series of promises that transforms the base...
The cycle repeats
It's hard to shake the feeling that we've been here before with Destiny 2: Forsaken. When The Taken King hit the original Destiny and propelled the game to a point where it once again felt complete and compelling, it was a welcome addition after months and months of frustration. It's the same story with Destiny 2, a title that's...

It introduces a whole host of planets to visit and patrol, but where are the...
All content detailed
On Tuesday 1st October, Destiny 2 goes free-to-play. It's a big change for the game, one that affects its structure, content delivery, and how it is perceived going forward.

The grind begins again
Destiny 2: Forsaken is here, and with it is the new soft Power cap of 500. Power level 500 is the number that you'll be aiming for as you play through Destiny 2's new expansion, but how exactly do you get there?

Hands and knees
Seeking out and gathering materials in Destiny 2 can take some time. Whether you're collecting them for a quest, to complete a challenge, or for a simple patrol mission, actually tracking down dusklight shards and the other planet-specific resources can be a pain in the neck. Hopefully, this quick guide can help you find what you...
Loot, levelling up, and legendary gear
Destiny 2 is a big improvement over its predecessor in many ways. Systems have been streamlined, activities have been expanded, and generally speaking, the overall experience is way more rewarding, and much more respectful of your time. However, if you're only just getting started or if you need a few...
Gotta go fast
"How do you unlock sparrows in Destiny 2?" seems to be a common question among those playing Bungie's shooter sequel. Unlike the first game, sparrows -- which are basically space motorbikes that you can ride around the game's open environments -- aren't gifted to you as you play through the campaign, so don't worry if you think you...
And how do you get in the Destiny 2 beta?

But what time does the Destiny 2 beta begin? And how do you get in the Destiny 2 PS4 beta? Worry not, eager...

Join the crew of the Normandy in Destiny 2
In a crossover we were shocked to discover hasn't happened before, Mass Effect is coming to Destiny 2 in a collaboration between BioWare and Bungie, out on 13th February. Guardians can gear up with some N7-themed armour sets inspired by Commander Shepard, Garrus Vakarian, and Liara T'Soni for Titans,...
Destiny 2 turns seven years old later this year, launching in 2017 on PS4. Die-hard fans who rolled a dud of a character, like an overly-edgy Awoken or a dorky-looking Exo, will finally be able to change up their character's appearance in an upcoming update, due sometime before June's The Final Shape expansion. In a blog post, Bungie...
The Witcher Effect
We've noted previously the coolness of Destiny 2's upcoming The Witcher 3 crossover content, which features stylish cosmetic armour sets inspired by Geralt of Rivia's own. Available now, we have a trailer showing them in action and are beginning to understand why Bungie is charging such a
As noted in our coverage of the reveal, Destiny 2's new, The Witcher 3-inspired crossover cosmetics look cool, but knowing the general state of microtransactions in live service games, they're probably going to cost a small fortune. Taking that thought and running with it, players are already dragging Bungie's plans through the...
Make a wish
We'll admit, it's been quite some time since we wrote anything genuinely positive about Destiny 2, but we're willing to give it up for this newly revealed crossover. Bungie's teamed with CD Projekt Red to craft some really cool looking cosmetics based on The Witcher 3, which decks out Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters in armour that...
"We know we have lost a lot of your trust"
Bungie has released a statement, the first since the news of layoffs at the Destiny 2 studio broke earlier this week, with around 100 staff impacted. The fallout from the move has led some players to demand refunds for DLC in protest, ad
Employees begged for positive changes
Player sentiment surrounding Destiny 2 has never been worse, a new IGN report claims. As part of an article detailing the unfortunate round of layoffs at developer Bungie, it is suggested players are looking elsewhere off the back of the game's disappointing Lightfall expansion and follow-up seasons. Sources...
Decision came from Bungie management, not Sony
New reporting suggests this week's layoffs at Bungie, the Sony-owned developer behind Destiny 2, have impacted around 100 staff members, or roughly 8% of the studio's headcount. Bloomberg reports that executives at Bungie told employees two weeks ago that Destiny 2 was running some 45% below revenue...
Bungie has announced that it'll be hosting its annual Destiny 2 Showcase next week, on the 22nd August. Naturally, it'll feature fresh info on The Final Shape — the shooter's next expansion — Season 22 of the game, the next reprised raid, and "more". If you've been keeping up with Destiny 2, you'll know that things have been more...
Reddick's lines will remain unchanged
Bungie has announced that experienced voice actor Keith David will succeed the late Lance Reddick in the role of Commander Zavala in Destiny 2. Reddick passed away back in March, aged 60. In a blog post, Bungie announced that David would be taking up the mantle as the English voice of Commander Zavala through...
In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a "Guardian," humanity's chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city's forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home. The official Destiny 2 reveal trailer, "Rally the Troops," shows two of the Vanguard, leaders of the Guardians, inspiring the people of the last city in an impassioned (and occasionally sarcastic) call to arms. In Destiny 2, players will answer this call, embarking on a fresh story filled with new destinations around our solar system to explore, and an expansive amount of activities to discover. There is something for almost every type of gamer in Destiny 2, including gameplay for solo, cooperative and competitive players set within a vast, evolving and exciting universe.
