This week at Bungie! 04/06/17
Destiny 2 - Gameplay reveal
Bungie will be giving us our first look at Destiny 2's gameplay on May 18th 2017 and will be answering all our burning questions. The exact time has yet to be announced but it will likely be around 10am Pacific (6pm BST, 7pm CEST). Make sure to stick this in your calendar, you don't want to miss this.
Iron Banner Returns!
Begins: Tuesday, April 11, 10AM Pacific (6pm BST, 7pm CEST) Ends: Tuesday, April 18, 2AM Pacific (10am BST, 11am CEST) Gamemode: Control.
Current Issues with Age of Triumph:
- The Destiny game client may unexpectedly close if a player is respawning when a Knuckles of Eao consumable is redeemed
- Players are receiving false Age of Triumph Record Book notifications during gameplay
- Some players who own a Trials of Osiris Flawless Emblem have not been rewarded the proper Record Book progress
- Players are unable to purchase Reciprocal Runes, Stolen Runes, or Moldering Shards from Eris
- Players are unable to proceed through the “Pushing Back the Darkness” Refer-a-Friend Quest Step
- Players may encounter an issue where Elimination games do not correctly end. Until resolved, players may be required to exit the match to continue playing Destiny
Additionally, Bungie are investigating reports that some players are unable to earn Treasure of Ages after the most recent Weekly Reset. If a player has not opened a previously-earned Treasure of Ages from a Weekly Ritual Activity, they will be unable to earn future Treasure rewards. While Bungie are investigating solutions to this issue, they highly recommend that players open Treasure of Ages Rewards earned from Weekly Ritual Activities immediately, to avoid loss of future rewards.
- Join-in-Progress has been removed from Rumble Crucible gametypes
- The “Doom of Oryx” Record Book Milestone correctly unlocks for qualifying players who completed an activity during the Destiny: The Taken King release.
Destiny 2: Beta
Players who pre-order Destiny 2 will be granted early access to the upcoming Beta, planned for later this year. Beta codes are distributed from participating retailers, which may be found here: https://www.destinythegame.com/buy.
