Bungie Weekly Update 5.2.14

This week at Bungie, we sent three Guardians into the wild. We invited you to come along. It’s very likely that you already saw it, but we’re still gonna post it one more time anyway. [yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeDaevD7cEo’] Right about the time those three Guardians were spilling their little secret – along with a ton of Fallen blood – enough journalists to staff a clan let slip with their thoughts and opinions about our game. Admittedly, that resulted in some more talking from us, but someone has to stand up in front of the hot lights and face the music. Did

Although there is an asterisk that states *the higher speeds and acceleration will also be available through

This week at Bungie, we played some Destiny. “You always say that!” Guilty as charged, friends.  The path that leads to a great day-one Destiny experience – one that vaults our bar and yours – is cleared by many playtests. If it makes you feel any better, many of the early runs feel a bit like hacking our way through dense brush. It’s dark, but still sweltering. We’re wildly swinging the machete, carving a new path.
