This Week at Bungie…we revealed Cayde’s fate
This week at Bungie, we revealed Cayde’s fate.
If you want to remain spoiler-free, you should stop reading now and not look at the internet until September 4. As many of you already know, the team gave you a glimpse of beloved Hunter Vanguard Cayde-6’s final moments earlier this week, watch the reveal trailer again here.
The team told you that Forsaken is taking a darker tone and has a Western revenge vibe. It looks as if many of you have taken it upon yourselves to avenge Cayde. In September, you’ll get your chance to hunt down the Barons, confront Uldren, and make him answer for his crimes.
Expo of Electronic Entertainment
The away team has been on the ground at E3 giving out new information on Forsaken and letting players get their hands on our new game mode, Gambit. Speaking of Gambit, the team have a new trailer showing off this competitive co-op experience, watch it again here
A lot of excited players have stopped by the booth to get their hands on Gambit for the first time. Here are a few photos documenting the action.
Cool pictures are not the only thing coming out of E3. The team also cleared up questions on Year 1 weapons moving forward when Forsaken launches. Game Informer has more details on how Forsaken players will be able to infuse Year 1 gear up to max Power.
That’s not all. The team also have a new developer insight video that dives into the behind-the-scenes making of the bow. You can watch it in Game Informer’s Deep Dive on Destiny 2: Forsaken’s New Bow.
Plan Your Way
You caught your first glimpse of the weapon slot changes in our ViDoc, and there is gameplay footage of Gambit coming out of E3 showing how the new system will work. Design Lead Josh Hamrick shared his team’s goals for the new system and a little more info on how it works. To read more, head over here.
To the Victor Go the Spoils
It’s winner’s week. Dead Orbit rose above the rest and claimed victory.
They broke the previous streak of dominance by New Monarchy who had won the previous four events in a row. New Monarchy finished second this time, and Future War Cult took home the bronze. Here’s a breakdown of the pledges and packages:
Dead Orbit is offering their weapon to everyone all this week. Make sure you pick it up before the next reset. If you pledged to them, you also get a hefty discount. New Monarchy and Future War Cult will get another shot when the Faction Rallies start back up again.
The banner is going back up again. Saladin invites fireteams of six to do battle for glory.
BEGINS: Wednesday, June 20 in ANZ
ENDS: Wednesday, June 27 in ANZ
The game is Control!
If you didn’t earn all your Season 3 ornaments during the first event, your progress carries over, and you can pick up right where you left off. Same goes for working your way through Saladin’s reputation ranks.
Good luck out there!
