Destiny: The Taken King News

September2017

  • 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...

  • Soapbox You Shouldn't Feel Bad for Liking Destiny

    Rise of Iron looks to continue the love-hate relationship

    With Rise of Iron details flooding the news yesterday, it made me stop and think about Destiny as a whole. We've all been there, I know, but I came to the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with being excited for the upcoming expansion – there's actually nothing wrong with liking...

  • News Destiny: Rise of Iron Details Creep Out of the Darkness

    Light levels rising

    And so it begins. It was only a matter of time before we started getting flooded with information regarding Destiny's upcoming September expansion, and Game Informer's got the scoop on a load of new details. For starters, the light level cap is getting raised beyond what we had initially thought. Right now, the light level...

  • News Destiny's Challenge of the Elders Won't Be the Same Starting Next Week

    So random

    Bungie's bringing a big change to Challenge of the Elders starting next week. The Destiny activity, which sees a fireteam of up to three Guardians take on an assortment of enemies while dealing with various gameplay modifiers, is being randomised from the 2nd August. In other words, the developer will no longer be setting the rules and...

  • News Destiny: The Collection Is Supposedly Coming to PS4 in August

    One month before Rise of Iron

    With big expansion Rise of Iron out in September, we were betting on Activision releasing a new all-in-one Destiny package, much like it did when The Taken King launched last year, but as it turns out, the publisher may have other plans. Indeed, Destiny: The Collection has been spotted on Amazon, and it's supposedly...

  • News 'The Future Is Bright' for Destiny, Says Bungie

    Studio teases big things to come

    It's been a couple of weeks since we last wrote about Destiny, which has got to be some sort of record, right? All's been quiet on the sci-fi shooter's front, as most fans are waiting patiently for September's Rise of Iron expansion, but that hasn't stopped developer Bungie from hyping up "the future" of the game...

  • Soapbox Destiny's Grimoire Cards Are Pretty Awesome

    A glimpse at what could have been

    Destiny is famous for a lot of things, but a strong and structured storyline is most definitely not one of them. In fact, it's more renowned for telling you that it doesn't have time for a plot. I'm here to tell you that Destiny actually possesses potentially one of the deepest and most well thought out universes...

  • Rumour Here's an Early Glimpse of Destiny's Next Expansion

    Ironing things out

    Destiny's upcoming expansion, of which we've known very little about until now, appears to have leaked. The add-on's key artwork appeared on Reddit overnight, and sources familiar with Bungie have apparently confirmed to Kotaku that it's legitimate. As you can see from the above image, the expansi

  • News Destiny Continues to Be a Big Hit for Activision

    Activision's revealed some pretty impressive Destiny statistics during the company's most recent financial report, claiming that the game now has almost 30 million registered players.

    Better loot, infusion, and reputation gains

    Thanks to yesterday's livestream, we learned quite a lot about what Bungie's bringing to the table in terms of rewards and progression with Destiny's April update. As you'd imagine, new weapons and armour will be up for grabs, including gear sets that can be altered using Chroma - a new resource that to...

  • Live Take an Early Look at The Loot of Destiny's April Update

    Rock the drop

    Bungie's second livestream based on Destiny's big April Update will be all about the loot and rewards that the developer's adding to the game. With a heightened light level cap and a revamped Prison of Elders, we're hoping that the new equipment is going to be worth gunning for. The stream kicks off at 19:00 BST/11:00AM PST, and...

  • News Destiny's April Update Promises a Much Better Prison of Elders

    Bungie details the upcoming patch

    All of you Guardians had better get used to seeing Variks' ugly mug on a regular basis, because the Prison of Elders is coming back with a bang as part of April's big Destiny update. Bungie revealed in its most recent livestream that those who own The Taken King can look forward to a new level 41 challenge, as well...

  • Live This Is What's Coming to Destiny in the Big April Update

    Bungie reveals new content

    Is it finally time for Bungie to get Destiny back on its feet and back in the news? Maybe, but we'll hopefully have a more definitive answer for you following the developer's livestream, which is starting at 18:00PM GMT/11:00AM PST/14:00PM EST. During the broadcast, the studio plans on showing us what's coming in the...

  • News Is Destiny About to Come Back with a Bang?

    April's update sounds promising

    Let's face it: it's always been a rocky road for Destiny players. Every time that the game introduces big changes, through an expansion or otherwise, it usually isn't long before hardcore Guardians have exhausted the new content, and are once again hungry for more. It's no secret that Bungie's shooter has slipped out...

  • Poll Has Destiny Won You Back With The Taken King?

    Is the cryptarch calling?

    Destiny: The Taken King is out and fans of Bungie's shooter have probably spent their last weekend grinding themselves into dust. If internet reactions are anything to go by, then the game's third and biggest expansion has been met with a reasonably positive reception. Veteran players seem to like the changes, and lapsed...

  • News Destiny: The Taken King's Raid Has Already Been Conquered

    The king has fallen

    Raids, as this author understands them, are the uber-complex end-game missions in Destiny that are supposed to take weeks to conquer. It's no surprise, then, that there's serious online street cred up for grabs if you can come through them in hours – and one The Taken King gang will be lapping up the plaudits today, as they...
