Yesterday we learned that Destiny 2 will be adding what is essentially a battle pass system, providing a steady stream of rewards on both a free and a premium track. Director Luke Smith has clarified one detail about the Season Rank system: it will follow your guardian wherever you decide to play Destiny 2.

Bungie is at PAX in Seattle this weekend, showing off the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion for Destiny 2. While checking out the demo, it seems players have come across a brand new exotic weapon, a trace rifle called Divinity.
Bungie’s unexpected split with publisher Activision at the beginning of the year seemed like a dramatic turn for the studio that’s been making Destiny games for nearly ten years. And while Bungie has announced some massive changes coming to Destiny 2 since then – moving from Battle.net to Steam, allowing cross-saves, and a free-to-play version – parting ways with Activision hasn’t had as big an impact on how the studio works as an outsider might naturally think.
Destiny 2’s new content drop is called the Season of the Undying, and features the Vex. A new trailer for the update was announced earlier today at Gamescom 2019’s Opening Night Live.
Bungie has spent the week doing deep dives into its philosophy for the future of Destiny and everything that’s gone right and wrong with Destiny 2 – and, of course, plenty of concrete details one what to expect on the Shadowkeep release date. Today’s blog is no exception, and gives us some notable info on what to expect from the Crucible and the game’s “evolving world.”
Part of the mission statement behind Destiny 2’s impending soft relaunch is that players shouldn’t have barriers to enjoying the same content their friends are playing. To that end, Bungie plans to seriously level the playing field when it comes to power progression. When the Shadowkeep release date hits, a power floor is going into place.
When it comes to hard drive real estate, Destiny 2 is already on the large side. But when Shadowkeep arrives in October, it’s going to get even bigger. With Shadowkeep installed, the Steam version of Destiny 2 is going to require a whopping 165 gigabytes of hard drive space.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep needs a couple of more weeks in the oven, according to developer Bungie, so it’s been delayed. Shadowkeep is dropping from its September 17 position to October 1, but you won’t have to wait for all the changes Bungie’s promising to Destiny 2 – cross-save is set to launch later this month.
GuardianCon began a few years ago as a grassroots Destiny convention, and it’s since become an annual charity event that has raised millions of dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, the event pulled in over $3.7 million, thanks in no small part to the efforts of streamer Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo.
Destiny 2’s fire-belching exotic shotgun Lord of Wolves is, as Rich has observed, extremely broken right now, with its release the wolves perk now available on demand simply by holding the reload key. Bungie is aware of the issue, but a fix won’t be coming out until at least next month, to allow the development team to work normal hours.
