Gaming News and Info

Halo

Halo Wars 2 For those looking forward to the new Halo Wars game we’ve got a new ViDoc to share. This one is all about the story, particularly focused on the new AI and the Brute that’s been shown repeatedly as the main enemy. There’s several new clips and possibly some hidden details so watch it for yourself.

Destiny

Destiny On Wednesday Bungie showed off some of the new sights of the Cosmodrome and a special sparrow you can collect. The Wall of the Cosmodrome has partially been destroyed with shanks continuing to chip away at what remains. The snow covered ground and new holes gives access to areas that were previously death zones, or inaccessible. There were no details given, just a stroll through the area.

The only new information was the reveal of the Gjallerwing Sparrow. This is special sparrow that is available for pre-ordering Rise of Iron, or a different version will be available through Eververse. You can see the trailer below.

And closing out the Destiny news is another glimpse at new armor. Once again, they only posted one collection of pictures on their Twitter account. This time, it featured the Warlock.
