When Bungie revealed the first gameplay trailer for Destiny 2 on Thursday, fans made a lot of noise about the new superpowers available and the CGI trailers setting up the new “Red War Campaign” story mode. There was even a comically loud cheering section when Bungie execs announced that, at long last, players wouldn’t be kicked to the game’s waiting zoneevery time they wanted to do a new activity. But a lot of the nuts-and-bolts changes to Destiny 2 went unmentioned onstage.

Luckily, I spent time on Thursday playing a healthy amount of the new Crucible multiplayer, a full-fledged three-person strike, and the introductory story mission. It’s safe to say that Destiny 2 feels and looks a lot like its predecessor — the changes here are going to be subtle ones. But they are important tweaks that will have some drastic effects on how you play both cooperatively against the AI and against other human opponents in competitive games.

NEAT CHANGES TO EXISTING SUBCLASSES
Naturally, Bungie made a big deal out of its three new subclasses, including a fan-pleasing reveal of the Solar Warlock class, Dawnblade, during the first gameplay trailer. There’s also going to be a new Void Titan class, Sentinel, that is a straight up Destiny version of Captain America, shield and all. As for the Hunter, there’s a new Arc subclass called Arcstrider similar to the original game’s Bladedancer that replaces daggers with a lightning-imbued staff.

This was all pretty much known after Bungie’s presentation. What the developer didn’t tell you, however, is that even the old subclasses are getting revamped. I only had a chance to spend time with the Titan’s traditional Striker class from the first Destiny, but it was noticeably different.

[​IMG]Photo: Bungie
For one, after using its signature Fist of Havoc skill, my super stayed active. I was able to run around the map while charged up with lightning and burst into my enemies at high speeds. It made the super skill less of a one-off shot in the dark and more of an ongoing strategic threat. Bungie has confirmed that there will be significant changes to the other existing subclasses to keep them feeling fresh.

I did however ask about whether the newly announced subclasses would mean the end of Sunsingers, Defenders, and Bladedancers, and Bungie designer and social lead M.E. Chung wouldn’t say in my interview with her. So for those who are desperately hoping the self-resurrection and bubble skills are still in the game, there is still a faint glimmer of hope.

[​IMG]Photo: Bungie
NEW LATENT ABILITIES
A brand new addition to Destiny 2 is latent subclass abilities. In the first game, the only things that differentiated one subclass from another were jump styles, grenade and melee types, and super abilities. There was of course the unevenly distributed subclass skill, like Shadestep and Shoulder Charge, but those always felt like fun tricks rather than strategic tools.

THESE ABILITIES MAKE COMBAT MUCH MORE DYNAMIC
Now, each subclass has a series of latent abilities that can be used on recharge. For instance, the new Dawnblade class for Warlocks allows players to create a temporary pool of light that either heals surrounding teammates or gives them a damage boost. This is also coming to older subclasses. The Titan’s Striker class can now create artificial walls to use as cover, while the Hunter’s Gunslinger can use quick dodges that simultaneously reload weapons.

During my time playing the strike as a Dawnblade, the pools of damage-boosting/healing light were critical in taking down higher-level enemies and staying alive during particularly grueling parts of the three-stage boss fight. We can expect every subclass to have some pretty unique abilities not dependent on a super charge, as Bungie seems intent on making the divisions between classes more pronounced.

[​IMG]Photo: Bungie
A WEAPONS SYSTEM OVERHAUL
Perhaps the most noticeable change to how Destiny 2 looks and feels is in the weapons system. The original game had three weapon slots: primary, secondary, and heavy. Primary weapons were things automatic rifles, revolvers, and burst firing guns. Secondary weapons contained sniper rifles and shotguns, while heavy weapons were exclusively large machine guns, rocket launchers, and, later on, swords.

Now, in Destiny 2, weapon slots are divided between kinetic, energy, and power weapons. Kinetic weapons still feel like standard primary ones: you have your hand cannons, auto rifles, pulse rifles, and so on. Yet energy weapons are now a kind of hybrid class that consists of any non-power weapon with an elemental charge. That means sidearms, but also any hand cannon or auto rifle with a solar, void, or arc flavor to it. In other words, your loadout can consist of a hand cannon in one slot and an elemental auto rifle in the next. This brings up a lot of interesting new combinations — imagining taking down an enemy's solar shield with your auto rifle and then swapping quickly to a hand cannon to land some head shots when his defenses have evaporated.

[​IMG]Photo: Bungie
The power weapons are now where every one-hit-kill weapon has been grouped together. That means shotguns, fusion rifles, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and all-new grenade launchers are all in one category. You can only have one equipped at any given time. In my time playing the new attack/defense game mode, Countdown, this created an interesting dynamic. Firefights remained long-range at first, as every player used the new submachine class or relied on a hand cannon or auto rifle. But as the power weapon counter went down, players began stocking up on shotgun, sniper, and rocket ammo and the fight took a radical shift toward more hectic, close-range and one-shot play.

Chung told me that this was designed to make Crucible more friendly and less about who could either close the distance faster and pull off that shotgun blast or camp and nail a sniper headshot. “Destiny 1 could have been better on the readability scale,” she said. “One-shot kills suck when they happen to you.” She added that Bungie wants Destiny 2’s multiplayer to be “learnable and watchable experience,” so that when you die you learn something new. This inevitably means less dependence on a “meta” weapon type and more strategic use of supers, latent abilities, and unique loadouts.

CRUCIBLE COMBAT CHANGES
The new weapons system has had a noticeable effect on multiplayer combat. During my time playing Countdown, it was clear that Destiny 2 has borrowed more from the arena shooter realm dominated by Halo and thrown in some of the strategic teamwork of Counter-Strike and Call of Duty. In doing so, the game is leaving behind the more of the free-for-all slugfest aspects of the original Destiny that had everyone shotgunning each other — until someone wiped an entire squad with a super.

COMBAT FEELS SLOWER AND MORE STRATEGIC
This means it’s quite a lot harder to take an enemy down, and it’s far easier on the opposing end to recover from a surprise attack and retaliate adequately. Enemies feel like they have more health and move quicker in relation to your ability to track them with your weapons, which has the effect of slowing down the combat from engagement to the time someone notches a kill. This resulted in some intense bouts that felt more like an exercise in environment control and critical thinking and less about instincts, timing, accuracy and other traditional shooter metrics.

It was a refreshing change, especially given how the original Crucible devolved into an ever-constant game of tag to see who could keep up with Bungie’s balancing system the best. Now, at least for the launch, players can look forward to combat that is fresh and, in my experience, fun to learn.

Destiny is coming to PC for the first time with Destiny 2, and there already appear to be growing pains. Not only is the PC release likely launching after the console versions, but PC project lead David Shaw said that neither version’s multiplayer will run on its own servers.

“It is a complicated typology,” Shaw told PC Gamer in an interview following Destiny 2’s live gameplay reveal yesterday. “We do not have dedicated servers for Destiny 2 on PC.”

Instead, Destiny 2 will likely continue to use the tech of the first game. Destiny and its expansions use a form of peer-to-peer networking for their multiplayer modes, which is typical for online console games. The issue with peer-to-peer, however, is that it can come with some major latency issues; since data is transmitted to each player individually, there are more points of failure.

PC gamers are more used to dedicated servers, which are generally regarded as more reliable. While they may be disappointed by Destiny 2’s lack of them, many console-based Destiny players have also long requested dedicated servers for the sequel.

The game’s Reddit is filled with highly upvoted threads asking for dedicated servers:

[​IMG]Reddit
We’ve reached out to Activision, the game’s publisher, to confirm whether Destiny 2 will use the same networking as the original Destiny. We’ll update accordingly.

Update: Producer Mark Noseworthy confirmed that the game won’t have dedicated servers on either console.

“We are not getting dedicated servers,” he said around the one hour, 10 minute-mark in a video interview with IGN.

Here’s a new Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 video for you, featuring a track from Royal Deluxe.

Titled Dangerous, after the song, this Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 video shows off the various ways in which Jonathan North can take out enemies.

Along with sniping and armor-piercing bullets, Jon can stab foes, use exploding barrels, run folks down with a vehicle, and give bad guys a good knee to the face.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 takes place in northern Georgia and features large, open-world maps with dynamic weather and a day and night cycle. The latter two will impact both play and decisions.

Players can also customize weapons, equipment, accessories, vehicles and a drone.

Announced in 2014 for an early 2016 release, CI Games pushed back the release to January 2017 as it needed more development time. In October of last year, the game was once again delayed and scheduled for April 4. In March of this year, the developer announced Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 would once again see a delay, but only by three weeks.

The game will be finally be released later this month on April 25 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Back when Microsoft first announced Project Scorpio at E3, the only image it showed was that of the system’s motherboard. Last week when the console’s specs were revealed, we were shown more pictures of that same motherboard. Now, we’ve gotten an idea of what the final system may look like thanks to recently released pictures of the Project Scorpio dev kit.

These images come to us via Gamasutra, who visited Microsoft in Redmond and spoke to the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer. As you can see, the dev kit bears a strong resemblance to the original Xbox One, albeit with some key differences.

The front of the unit has an OLED screen with a navigation button and five programmable buttons. This screen shows developers information like frames per second. Very useful indeed, though it is unlikely that this will be in the consumer version of the system.

[​IMG]

This dev kit has the same amount of ports that the retail Scorpio will. Its vents are located on the sides and not the top. This way, devs can stack Scorpios on top of each other (like the image below) without any overheating issues. The dev kit also sports an extra network interface card. This transmits data while playing multiplayer games.

[​IMG]

As Microsoft previously stated, Project Scorpio will be able to run Xbox One games. The dev kit can actually switch between Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Scorpio settings. This allows developers to optimize titles for each Xbox console. Xbox head Phil Spencer told Gamasutra that Microsoft has “millions of customers that have made a commitment to the Xbox One generation.” He doesn’t want anyone who owns an Xbox One to feel left out or disappointed. This also means that, at the moment, there will be no Scorpio exclusive games.

“When you ship an Xbox One game two years from now, even if you don’t look at Scorpio as something that you want to take advantage of, fine. That’s up to you. We’re not mandating that people go and do Scorpio-specific work.” Spencer said that most AAA developers already have 4K assets for the PC version of their games. Using these assets for the Scorpio version of a title shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Please keep in mind that the retail version of Project Scorpio will not look resemble the dev kit exactly. However, it does give us an indication of what the upcoming machine will look like. Hopefully, we will get to see what the consumer version of Scorpio looks like during this year’s E3.

It’s for “that premium customer, the gamer that expects the absolute best versions of the games,” says Microsoft.

[​IMG]

Microsoft’s new Xbox console, codenamed Project Scorpio, will be more expensive than the PlayStation 4 Pro.

The PS4 Pro currently retails for $373 in the US and £349 in the UK – no small beans.

According to Eurogamer’s interview with Mike Ybarra, corporate VP of Xbox at Microsoft, Project Scorpio is for “that premium customer, the gamer that expects the absolute best versions of the games”. And the site states that “one thing seems clear: Project Scorpio will be more expensive than PS4 Pro.”

Digital Foundry estimates Xbox Scorpio will run $499, the same price Xbox One was at launch. That’s $100 more than PS4 Pro, depending on the retailer.

Microsoft has revealed the tech specs for Project Scorpio today in a collaboration with Digital Foundry.

First talked about last year, Project Scorpio is Microsoft’s hardware refresh for the Xbox One and takes on Sony’s PS4 Pro, released late in 2016.

We’re expecting to see a bunch of Scorpio games announced at E3 in June, including a detailed look at those already confirmed including Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves.

Microsoft revealed the details on the specs for the new Xbox Project Scorpio console to exclusively EuroGamer. Microsoft has touted this new console as the “world’s most powerful console.”

Here’s a look at the specs, compared to Xbox One and PS4 Pro.

[​IMG]

The Xbox Project Scorpio is available to run games at native 4K, 60 FPS. EuroGamer shared some footage of Forza running on the system in 4K.

“To me, [4K] means a very specific set of things. It’s a lot more than delivering than those eight-million-plus pixels to the screen while playing games,” says Kevin Gammill, Group Program Director of the Xbox Core platform. “It’s about delivering those pixels with 4K assets, so they look great. It’s about delivering those pixels with HDR and wide colour gamut fidelity. It’s about delivering those pixels with no loss of frame-rate compared to the 1080p version of that title – that’s super-important to us. Spatial audio adds to the immersive experience as well: to truly land that gameplay experience, it’s not just about what you see, but what you hear.”

The new system on chip for Project Scorpio is developed in partnership with AMD.

[​IMG]

In addition to allowing developers to improve games on Scorpio, playing non-Scorpio updated games on the Project Scorpio has improvements too. The system itself provides a smoother performance and reduced screen-tearing.

“We’ve taken the approach that we do with 360 [games] on Xbox One, where you will never see a torn frame, because we have enough performance there to ensure that.”

Alongside this, Microsoft plans for a GameDVR for Scorpio which should record and capture gameplay at 4K60FPS resolution, alongside with overall faster loading up and system performance.

We should note that Microsoft says this new console is a “premium console” for high end users. Pricing wise, it will be priced higher than the PlayStation 4 Pro. EuroGamer estimates the console may cost $499 at launch. It is expected to launch in Holiday 2017.

Bungie has dropped the Destiny 2 reveal trailer.

The video provides a look at the new story in Destiny 2 where the “last safe city on Earth” has fallen and is now occupied by a new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion.

As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players will need to master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city’s forces to reclaim their home.

The video above, Rally the Troops, shows two of the Vanguard, which are leaders of the Guardians. In Destiny 2, players head off to new destinations around the solar system and while exploring, will find an “expansive amount of activities.”

Bungie said there will be plenty for solo, cooperative and competitive players to do in game.

The first hands-on gameplay reveal livestream will be broadcast on May 18.

Destiny 2 is now available for pre-order in standard, Limited and Collector’s editions, and as previously reported, pre-ordering nets early access to the beta with dates to be announced.

Destiny 2 Limited Edition($99.99)

  • Destiny 2 Base Game
  • Destiny 2 Expansion Pass: Get access to both Expansion I and Expansion II, offering brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and a wealth of new weapons, armor, and gear.

  • Cabal Schematic
  • Collectible Postcard Images
  • Cabal Military Pawns

Premium digital content:

  • Cabal Empire Themed Emblem

An Expansion pass will also be on offer, and will contain Expansion I and Expansion II, offering brand new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer, and “a wealth” of new weapons, armor, and gear.

Looks like the information in the leak earlier today was spot on, even the PC boxart.

Destiny 2 releases worldwide on September 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and as of press time, Bungie suggests a minimum of 68GB available hard drive storage will be required.

There will be additional, timed exclusive content on PlayStation 4. To play online, users will need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Until Destiny 2 is released, current players can enjoy Age of Triumph in Destiny 1.

It’s the last live update to the game, and should provide players with plenty to do and accomplish in the meantime.

The Nintendo Switch was (finally) released last Friday. Many gamers were anticipating the release of the system, and it seems they have put their money where their mouths are. Right now, the Switch is the fastest selling Nintendo console ever in the Americas and Europe. The console/handheld hybrid is also doing great in its home country of Japan (according to Famitsu, as translated by Kotaku).

Speaking with New York Times reporter Nick Wingfield, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that initial sales of the Switch (for March 3 and 4) surpassed the first two-day sales of any other system in the company’s history. This is also the case over in Europe. The Switch failed to surpass the first two-day sales of the Wii in Japan, though it did outsell the Wii U in the same time frame.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also a huge hit. The game is now the best-selling standalone launch title for a Nintendo platform. Fils-Aime didn’t disclose exactly how many units the game sold, but it did outsell Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64. Breath of the Wild also did great in Europe, and has managed to outsell (the non-bundled) Wii Sports (according to MCV).

Below are the string of tweets from NYT reporter Nick Wingfield.







Things are definitely looking great for the Switch at this time. If Nintendo can manage to produce enough systems and release compelling titles, it should remain a success for the rest of the year. The Switch will no doubt enjoy another bump in popularity (and sales) this fall when Super Mario Odyssey is released.

Buy it now!

The last update for the current state of Destiny is coming on March 28th. This update is gonna give players the chance to celebrate the game with updates to the Vault of Glass and Crota raids, An Age of Triumph book to complete (I understand this book will contain 13 pages of achievments to get!) plus tons more.

Should be good, here's a teaser:

The French arrive in Battlefield 1’s first major expansion.

[​IMG]

Battlefield 1’s first major expansion arrives tomorrow March 14 for Premium Pass owners on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you’re not a Premium Pass owner you’ll have to wait until March 28.

They Shall Not Pass introduces the French army to the fight; specifically a new trench raider class, five new main weapons, new melee weapons like the cogwheel club and nail knife, two new operations, another behemoth and tank, four new maps and a new game mode.

It’s fair to say it’s a meaty package. We’ve already gone hands-on and seen a number of new weapons on different maps, so let’s take a look at everything we know about the DLC in preparation of it dropping this week.

The four new maps are the burning fires and uphill slog of Verdun Heights, the dark underground of Fort De Vaux, a major tank assault in Soissons and the poppy drenched trenches of Rupture.

The Fort De Vaux map has been available in the CTE already, so our man Westire has captured gameplay footage, complete with a look at the Lebel bolt action rifle.

You can also get a peek at Rupture above, a map split into two halves with a bridge the central point for capture. This is also the map that has a Dark Souls Easter egg in it, which hands the player a new cavalry sword once pulled from a bonfire.

We also have a good look at the new French army in the Soissons map, and perhaps more importantly get to see the new Behemoth: the Char 2C tank. This differs from other behemoths in the game as it’s not on-rails, and allows five players to control the lumbering beast.

[​IMG]

You’ll also get to see the new St Chamond tank, which has the ability to call in an artillery strike.

Frontlines is a new mode for They Shall Not Pass, which DICE is pitching as a sort of mix between Conquest and Rush. Players fight for one flag at a time before battling it out to capture a HQ and attack and defend telegraph posts. You can see it briefly in the video above.

[​IMG]

They Shall Not Pass introduces the Trench Raider class to Battlefield 1, a build focused on up-close melee attacks and a healthy stash of grenades.

When it comes to new weapons They Shall Not Pass isn’t lacking. You’ll be able to pick up the Ribeyrolles 1918, RSC 1917, Lebel Model 1886, Chauchat, Sjögren Inertial, and the MLE 1903 Extended.

[​IMG]

DICE is also offering 10 new ranks, new medals, dog tags and service stars and codex entries in They Shall Not Pass.

[​IMG]

And! We almost forgot the new stationary weapon: The Howitzer.

Expect all of the above to be utilised in the two new Operations in this DLC; Beyond The Marne and The Devil’s Anvil.

Quake Champions is back in the limelight with a look at one of its reimagined maps, and new hero Nyx.


Bethesda have revealed a bunch of new Quake Champions details, ahead of the game’s showing at PAX East this weekend, and the planned closed beta.

Quake Champions, in case you don’t remember, was pitched at E3 2016 as a fast-paced, PC shooter with a modern take on the classic Quake formula that features unique heroes.

Bethesda promised to reveal a few of the game’s heroes from now until the closed beta. Starting with Nyx, which you can see in the trailer above. Nyx is an agile champion that relies on her Ghost Walk ability to move between dimensions. This makes her invisible and immune to damage, and the ability can be used both defensively and offensively.

Nyx’s passive ability is Wall Jump, which is self explanatory. Nyx starts with 100HP, 75 armour, and a speed value of 270.

We also get our first look at Blood Covenant, one of the game’s arenas. Blood Covenant is based on The Camping Grounds (Q3DM6) from Quake 3 Arena. Some of Camping Grounds’ classic sections are intact, including the long jump pad that leads to the rocket launcher, the Quad Damage spawn, and the Railgun ledge.

You can see more of Blood Covenant in the video below. We’ve also included screenshots of Nyx and Blood Covenant for your viewing pleasure.

Quake Champions is due for release this year, but a release date has not yet been announced. In case you missed it, closed beta registration is still open on the official site, where you’ll also find a breakdown of the new champions and maps as they’re revealed.

Battalion 1944 development is moving forward, with Square Enix now signed as a publisher.

Battalion 1944 was among the most talked about Kickstarter campaigns of last year. Developer Bulkhead Interactive pitched a WW2 multiplayer shooter in the vein of classic Call of Duty titles.

The game remains on track for release this year, but a new development was recently announced. Square Enix will be publishing the game, which due for release this summer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

This is part of the Square Enix Collective, an initiative that was initially designed to help promote Kickstarter campaigns from small developers. Collective has now evolved into a publishing arm of Square Enix. Bulkhead actually worked with the Japanese publisher before on the studio’s sci-fi puzzler The Turing Test.

Bulkhead revealed the partnership in the video above, and promised to show new gameplay footage soon.
