Destiny 2: Crimson Days Is Back; Big Endgame Changes Incoming

Bungie Doubles Down on its Plans to Fix What's Wrong with Destiny 2

Barrett writes that future updates to Destiny 2 will also give players a "gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams)".

On the subject of the over-reliance on Eververse purchases, Barrett said, "We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment ..."

Bungie has stated it has shifted the balance in favour of more desirable rewards such as Ghosts, Sparrows and Ships instead of repeating shaders and little else.

As expected, Crimson Days is officially returning for Valentine's Day 2018, and will roll out on February 13.

"At the end of previous year, I made a promise that I would update you on our plans for Destiny 2", "The team has been hard at work and we're ready to share where we are headed". New Raid-specific perks and guaranteed item drops from major encounters should help ameliorate that the hard raids simply aren't worth the effort at the moment. From there, he lists a ton of changes and updates on where the game is going for the rest of 2018, beginning with the more controversial topics like Eververse and XP rates.

Work is underway on a full rework of armor and weapon mods. These will soon be unlocked through activity rewards rather than "Bright Engrams" collected for levelling up.

After months of criticism and anger from the community, Bungie has finally addressed Destiny 2's microtransaction problem.

Close UN Palestinian refugee agency: Netanyahu
Netanyahu at his Sunday weekly Cabinet meeting also reiterated support for Trump's threat to cut aid to Palestinians. The U.S. gives a little more than $300 million a year to the agency, accounting for its primary source of funding.

In spring, alongside the release of Destiny 2's second, untitled expansion, comes a new season for players - during which clans can start earning rewards from scratch again.

An avalanche of new information on the future of Destiny 2 rolled off Mt. Bungie Thursday, one day after a senior member of the dev team confirmed collectibles will be included in all future DLC. Every player of Destiny 2 will receive new content in the following categories... To make this right, they have revealed some changes to the game. The devs will be evaluating how Mods play into the Bright Engram economy as a result, as they are "sensitive to pay-to-win outcomes".

We are adding text chat to the Tower for the PC version of the game. Putting more of Eververse's shinies into the loot pool and adding direct purchase options for them, too, will go a long way to restoring players' goodwill about microtransactions.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Improved Iron Banner and Faction Rallies: In addition to the changes that you will see when Iron Banner and Faction Rallies return this month, we will continue iterating on these to make them unique, exciting experiences that you all look forward to. "We also have plans for Clan and Community High Scores in the works".

When multi-emote launches, you will be able to choose which emote you have equipped to each of your four emote slots. If you just want the highlights, pull up a chair and stick around for a while.
