The development team has shared some details on how the game is about to change.

If you want an idea of what gear you’ll be adding to your inventory, here’s a taste:
These new pieces of armor and weapons, and more, will be waiting for you next week, out in the wild.

This week’s Movie of the Week was difficult to call. Too much great content on the Community Creations page. The skill required for the videos below is something to behold – one displaying handcrafted armor, the other showcasing sniper rifle precision that made my jaw drop to the floor.
Movie of the Week: Destiny Girl
Honorable Mention: Antagonize
Winners of the Movie of the Week will find a sweet emblem within their vault collections. I’ll let you know when the goods have been delivered. Major props, and thanks for the great videos!
It’s been a busy week. We’ve begun a conversation that we’re looking to continue as Destiny 2 evolves. While Cozmo is out, I’ll be collecting feedback and forwarding it to the development team, whether it concerns our recent round of blog content or how you feel about Curse of Osiris once it’s in your hands. Even after Cozmo’s back, I’ll continue to lend a hand in the process. Your concerns are heard, your passion is vital, and we’re looking to keep you coming back for more.
Next stop, Mercury.
