  • Review Destiny: Rise of Iron (PS4)

    Can't teach a Young Wolf new tricks

    Back near the end of last year, Destiny was in dire need of a revamp. The release had stagnated to a point where many players had simply stopped coming back to Bungie's sci-fi creation, with the game's first two expansions – The Dark Below and House of Wolves – doing little to reinvigorate the title or fix its...

  • Push Rewind Did Destiny Deliver in the End?

    A sense of meaning

    Destiny means so many different things to different people. For some, it was a complete failure; an experience severely lacking in content, variety, and story were the cries of its dismissers as they joined the growing air of disappointment surrounding Bungie’s Halo successor. They seemingly formed the bulk of online opinion...

  • 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?...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Weirdness Destiny Rapper Is Back and Is Somehow Dropping Beats to Exotic Armour

    Rhymes of the exotic kind, part two

    Absolutely ages ago (summer of 2016), we wrote an article about YouTuber DUBA and his surprisingly creative Destiny exotic weapons rap - the perfect sort of madness for one of our rarely used 'Weirdness' articles. Now, DUBA's back with a rap that's perhaps even more impressive, if only because we can'

  • 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 PS4 Update 2.5.0 Full Patch Notes Released By Bungie

    Dawn of The Dawning

    Destiny's The Dawning winter event should be live any minute, but first, you'll need update 2.5.0, which adds a ton of new stuff to the game. At the time of writing, the patch isn't out just yet on PlayStation 4, but that at least gives you time to peruse the notes that Bungie has released. For starters, you can grab new quests...

  • News Destiny's Big Winter Event Blasts Off Later Today

    New activities, quests, and loot

    Destiny's The Dawning event goes live later today, offering a slew of new content to get stuck into over the winter holidays. The Sparrow Racing League is back, complete with new tracks, Strikes are getting a new scoring system - which is sticking around even after the event is done, for your information - and...

  • PSX 2016 Destiny's The Dawning Update Promises a Lot of Festive Game Tweaks

    Snow joke

    Bungie's going in pretty hard with Destiny's winter festivities, it would seem. Coming to the popular shooter on the 13th December, The Dawning will bring a load of new bits and pieces to the sci-fi experience. The Sparrow Racing League will obviously be making a return, alongside a new Strike scoring system, and a bunch of fresh quests...

About The Game

The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed, a battle-scorched reminder that our enemies still seek to destroy us all. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.
