Gaming News and Info

Destiny

Destiny Bungie has given a very small amount of details for the final live event in Destiny, as well as plans for Destiny 2. Coming at the end of March will be something called the “Age of Triumph” which seems to be an event with weekly events to participate in. A schedule has been set for the reveal with a new live stream on their Twitch account every Wednesday of March until release.

Details for Destiny 2 are less cryptic, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing. Character customization will transfer over only if the Guardian is level 20 and has completed the Black Garden story mission. Beyond that, no weapons, gear, emotes, items or Eververse items will transfer. You will simply keep your guardians face and nothing else. Bungie does promise to “Honor your legacy” in the second game, but they won’t share how right now.

Mass Effect: Andromeda BioWare’s plans for the PAX East 2017 convention (which includes the chance for attendees to play the game’s cooperative multiplayer for the first time) was a disappointing announcement: the game’s “multiplayer tech test” has been canceled.

“There will no longer be a multiplayer tech test for players at home,” said BioWare’s Sean Trayner in a blog post today. “Thank you to everyone who signed up. We look forward to seeing you in Andromeda.”
