In a first for the series, Destiny 2’s Season of the Drifter introduced a binary choice with permanent consequences: pledge loyalty to the strait-laced Vanguard, or the rogueish Drifter. Here’s what you get each week for making that choice.
For the first time in the series’ history, Destiny 2 now offers players a choice that could shape the rest of their game. The Allegiance quest, which begins this week, will ask players to choose between the Vanguard and the mysterious Drifter, with potentially far-reaching consequences.
The Season of the Drifter begins in Destiny 2 today, and Bungie has rolled out the full patch notes so you’ll know what you’re dealing with. The big new features – from Gambit Prime and Reckoning to Xur’s new selection of Forsaken Exotics – have already been detailed previously, but now we’ve got details on all the smaller changes set to hit the game. And there are a lot.
Destiny 2’s Season of the Drifter begins today, and it’ll offer some pretty handy armour upgrades. One of the update’s biggest new additions is the arrival of Gambit Prime, an improved version of the much-lauded PvE/PvP hybrid mode that first appeared alongside the game’s Forsaken expansion.
A US law firm has filed a class action lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, accusing the company of having “made materially false and/or misleading statements” concerning the company’s partnership with Destiny developer Bungie, which came to an end earlier this year. The suit has been filed to the United States District Court in California on behalf of the company’s recent shareholders.
Every week, I help bring the news of what gear Xur is hawking in Destiny 2. And every week, I see all the comments from players disappointed that the vendor is, once again, selling the same old Exotics we’ve been seeing week in, and week out. Well, there’s finally good news – Xur will start selling Forsaken Exotics next week.
Activision has put out a new SEC filing, which contains some notable details about the financial terms of its deal to relinquish the publishing rights to Destiny. Up front, we do not know whether these numbers indicate cash paid directly from Bungie to Activision, deferred revenue that’s now recognised as a result of the contract’s termination, or (most likely) some combination of the two.
Bungie has lifted the veil on the latest round of Destiny 2 content in Season of the Drifter. As director Luke Smith says, the developers are “starting to figure out what the roadmap for a Bungie-controlled Destiny looks like.” And indeed, though this content was likely in development well before the split between Bungie and Activision, this’ll be the first full set of releases since the developer took control.
The Season of the Drifter is set to launch in less than two weeks, and the folks at Bungie have sat down to provide some more details about what to expect when it starts up March 5. You can expect some significant changes to Gambit, as well as some changes to linear fusion rifles, shotguns, and a certain Titan exotic.
