Our Twitch channel had been dark for too long, so we fired it up and jumped into the fray. With a price on their heads, special guests Luckyy and BW joined Cozmo to clash with the community, Bungie Bounty style.
It was a good time. Good games with good people. Our heroes took their lumps with grace and honor. We awarded some Emblems to opponents and teammates alike.
There are those streams when we show off new content and pull out all the stops to blow your mind. Those are a fun way to include you in the event of a reveal, but it’s also important to us to experience our game right alongside the people who help us shape the conversation.
The Destiny Community is filled with interesting people who have their own unique voices. We’ll never get around to featuring all of them in a special event in our house. That don’t mean we won’t try.
Stream of Iron
Now, about “those streams where we show off new content…”
We tipped our hand in the last stream about the next stream. You never know what hints might be dropped on our channel.
This will not be an incursion into the Plaguelands. That’s for later. Before your adventures into new territories begin, you’re invited to join us for an exploration of how the world you know has changed with the passage of time.
Raise the Banner
It seems like we just saw Lord Saladin - after his return to the Tower after an unforeseen delay. With smoother sailing restored to the Crucible, he’s sticking to his schedule. An Iron Lord, after all, is defined by honor and discipline.
Begins: Tuesday, July 19th, 10AM Pacific Ends: Tuesday, July 26th, 2AM Pacific (weekly reset)
The game is Control!
Do you pack the gear you'll need for an appropriate arrival in the halls atop Felwinter Peak? Here’s your chance to earn the armor you lack, or elevate the items in your inventory.
Summon your favorite Fireteam or build one with people you have yet to meet. Control those zones. Legendary rewards will find their way into your Vaults.
Next week should be fun. Be sure to take a break from Iron Banner to hang with us on Twitch. There are fortunes to tell. We might even call the shot on the next stream about the stream that will happen after that.
We know it's good to have something to look forward to...
Bungie Day was created by the community ten years ago
Like all great community creations, we embraced it
This is a day to celebrate your achievements
The seventh day of the seventh month is when we put forth our best effort to recognize the amazing people you are and the fantastic things that you do. This is a thing we do every day, but Bungie Day is special. As the players of our games, you complete us. You are the main characters in the stories we tell. You are the heroes and the protectors of the worlds that we create.
Coincidentally, this Bungie Day also marks the advent of our 25th year in making kick ass games. We couldn’t have done it without passionate players just like you. Check out the long, strange trip that our company history has been.
Thanks for the memories. There are more to come. We hope you’ll join us for the journeys we have in store for the future.
Now, let’s get down!
Another Year. Another Triumph.
Ever since we issued the first invitation to play Destiny, we’ve been challenging the Guardians to become legend. But what does that mean? Where do we set the bar for the elite members of this brave community?
Last year, we answered those questions when we unveiled Moments of Triumph, a gauntlet of impressive feats of daring and skill. For those Guardians who could meet the challenge, there were rewards to define their status as one of the most dangerous warriors in the Tower. This year, we’re also tracking your progress toward immortality in the game.
Before you have the chance to fight your way to the top of Felwinter Peak, we have another mountain for you to climb. See the Postmaster right now to begin tabulating your journey. You can also keep track of your progress right here on Bungie.net. Is your Profile Page more impressive than this?
For every two challenges that you complete, there will be a new reward. If you can complete all of them, you’ll unlock an offering in the Bungie Store that will enable you to commemorate your complete triumph over evil.
As a Guardian who has met every challenge in the Director, you deserve a garment that bears their name. Even better, your purchase of this customizable t-shirt will benefit the Bungie Foundation, making you a protector of the real world as well. This isn’t just a chance to personalize your gear. You’ll be joining us in a mission of charity and goodwill.
The march begins now! Some of you may have already crossed the finish line. The rest of you have until September 20th. When Lord Saladin sounds the new charge to battle, the old challenges will pass into memory – and legend.
Gear Up and Change the World
When we play Destiny, we define ourselves by the armor we wear. Upon inspection, we reveal ourselves as champions of the Crucible, expert Raiders, or KinderGuardians in sore need of new teammates. In the real world, the Bungie Store is our Quartermaster.
Check out the Bungie Day wares. It’s got all the fashions and baubles you need to demonstrate to the world that you’re an agent of the Light. You can even put a monument to yourself on your shelf.
Make a purchase this week, and we’ll help you stand out in a crown in the game, too! Until July 13th, as a special thanks for your order, the 7-7 Ad Infinitum Emblem can be yours.
Best of all, when you do business with the Bungie Store, you’re making the world you live in a better place. Every dollar we earn from your purchases goes to charity. The Bungie Foundation is our benefactor – the arm of our good works.
We hope you enjoy your Bungie Day in some deeply personal way. Whether it’s realizing your triumphs, creating art, scoring some gear, or just shooting some aliens in the face with your friends, the day is yours. It’s an honor to have you as a member of this community, so celebrate yourself - and each other.
Stick around, Guardians. With a full quarter-century of making games under our collective belt, it still feels like we’re just getting started. All these years later, we still have hearts filled with big dreams and bold ambitions. Without players who are eager for new adventures, there would be no point, so we’ll take this as yet another chance to thank you for playing.
