This week at Bungie, we launched Warmind.
Guardians are breaking new ground on Mars, meeting up with Ana Bray to investigate the mysteries of Rasputin. If you haven’t had a chance to dive in yet, we have a trailer to serve as your mission briefing.
For the full rundown on how all of this changes the game, check out the full Update 1.2.0 Patch Notes.
We’re not done yet. Another activity is going live tomorrow…
Spire of Stars
Your next raiding adventure goes live on May 11 at 10 a.m. PDT. If you think you’re ready, line up at the starting line to make an attempt at becoming World First to complete the new raid lair, “Spire of Stars.” We’ll be watching and cheering you on as you travel back to the Leviathan to face a new challenge.
We’ll be standing by to congratulate the first fireteam to complete the activity. Good luck out there, Guardians!
The raid lair is not the only activity going live tomorrow. Trials of the Nine will return at 10 a.m. PDT with new Season 3 rewards. Here is what you can expect to earn as you battle other players for access to the Spire.
This season will not feature new armor ornaments for Trials, but we are working on more for the future. In the meantime, those of you who enjoy Crucible play can earn new ornaments in our Valor and Glory Ranks.
Next week, we are firing up the streaming studio again. This won’t be a reveal stream or a Bungie Bounty—we’ve been challenged in the ways of old by a player who claims he can defeat a Bungie Community Manager in the fires of the Crucible. PopeBear, one of the hosts of the popular Destiny Community Podcast, has bravely stepped up to go against Dmg04 in a friendly 1v1 match in Destiny 2. The stream kicks off at 6 p.m. PDT on May 16.
That won’t be the only bout. Immediately following the 1v1, Dmg04 and Pope will each be reinforced by three of their peers for a best-of-three challenge: Bungie Versus Destiny Community Podcast. Here are the lineups:
Team Destiny Community Podcast
2. Ms 5ooo Watts
3. Josh Hamrick
All matches will take place in Private Matches. Game types will be chosen on the stream. May the best team win!
Who do you think is going to come out on top in the 1v1 match? I have a poll going that you can vote in. My pick is Dmg04, but I do admire PopeBear’s resolve.
You have my respect, PopeBear. I hope they remember you.
In the Know
As new updates go live, Destiny Player Support is actively responding to issues and giving you the information you need.
This is their report.
Since the release of Warmind, Destiny Player Support has been all hands on deck troubleshooting issues reported to the #Help forum. The following issues have been confirmed, and teams are actively investigating solutions.
Destiny 2 Hotfix 184.108.40.206
To address Rat King and a number of issues detailed above, Destiny Update 220.127.116.11 is currently in development. Our current release date target is Tuesday, May 15, 2018. We’ll have more information on when to expect the Hotfix to become available for download and which issues will be addressed.
Destiny Companion API: Players Unable to See Characters or Inventory
We are aware of reports that players are unable to inspect their characters or inventory on Bungie.net, the Destiny Companion App, or through third-party applications.
A potential workaround is to sign in to all created Destiny 2 characters that are linked to your Bungie.net account. If you have created characters on multiple platforms, you will need to sign in to every available character.
This issue is planned to be resolved with Destiny Hotfix 18.104.22.168. Stay tuned to @BungieHelp on Twitter for updates.
Let’s check in on our weekly visit to the Creations page to see what cool movies the community has put together.
Movie of the Week: Answering the Protocol
Honorable Mention: Funnies
This was a short one. We know you have new things to do and items to earn, so we won’t keep you away from the game with a lot of words. We’re monitoring your feedback on anything and everything you’re playing in the update and keeping track of the changes you’re enjoying and what you think could be better in the future.
Have fun in the raid lair tomorrow. We’ll be watching.
