Destiny patch 1.2.0 issues might delay House of Wolves

Destiny patch 1.2.0 issues might delay House of Wolves

Destiny players are probably quite hyped for the next DLC to land in their hands. After all, Bungie helped fuel that hype in the days leading to the launch. However, the developer might just poured cold water over gamers' passions by revealing a technical problem that could very well delay the arrival of House of Wolves next week. If this claim is true, Bungie might have avoided getting egg on its face, but naturally the rather vague statements have left some community members still feeling disappointed.

Bungie teases the days leading to Destiny Expansion II

Bungie teases the days leading to Destiny Expansion II

Destiny's Expansion II might be coming late, but Bungie is making sure you'll be entertained, or at least informed, until that day arrives. House of Wolves, the title for the next big installment of one of the hottest MMO's to hit the console, is arriving on May 19. While gamers eagerly, and perhaps nervously, await that promised update, Bungie will be filling in the lull, not by spilling all, but by teasing bits and pieces that will make up Expansion II. This is both to tease players as well as to avoid the nasty surprises that muddied Expansion I last year.

Destiny update 1.1.2 will include colorblind mode

Bungie has detailed its upcoming 1.1.2 update for Destiny, and among the planned changes is the addition of a Colorblind Mode which, as it suggests, is a mode the changes the color profile so that the game is more playable for those with colorblindness. It's not the first game to add such a mode, of course, but it is an important addition given how often color is used to indicate things about weapons or players that is lost in translation for those who can't see it. Joining the colorblind mode will be some changes to the audio options, as well.

Destiny Expansion II confirmed for Q2, something more coming this fall

Players of Bungie's online FPS Destiny have been finished with Expansion I, The Dark Below, for some time now, having been released in early December.

Bungie executive swatted by unknown prankster

The phenomenon of "swatting" -- calling in a fake threat to get a SWAT team sent to someone's home -- is both illegal and potentially dangerous. That hasn't stopped the "prank" from taking place in growing numbers, however, and newest to the list of victims is an unnamed Bungie executive. Law enforcement descended upon his Washington home in the wee morning hours yesterday following a call that was believed to come from the home making big claims: a family held hostage, bombs, and guns.

Destiny on PS3: unsurprisingly less gorgeous

Destiny on PS3: unsurprisingly less gorgeous

It's time to play spot the difference again! Destiny started its public beta phase last week and, naturally, current gen console gamers have jumped in on the action, both in real life and in-game. However, last gen owners weren't exactly left out of the fun, but how much are they missing by playing on boxes that are so last decade? Digital Foundry and NeoGAF dig in to find out and apparently, it's not much. That is, if you don't mind lower res, blurrier objects.
