Crucible Designer Kevin Yanes is among the most dangerous players on the team here at Bungie. We don’t enter the Crucible with him unless our A-Game is polished up and ready to shine. He’s here to talk to us about what he and his peers have observed in the competitive arena over these past seven months of Destiny gameplay. They’re about to change the way ammunition finds its way into our magazines. Ammunition is the carrot you chase in our digital
Published on: Apr 2, 2015 @ 17:58 The next expansion for Destiny is something we’re really looking forward to talking about. This month, there will come a day when we’ll reveal a release date for the trials that await you, with a whole reef of details soon to follow – but it is not this day. Update 1.1.2 has been a topic for conversation between us and you for weeks now. Today, we’re talking about the things we’ve been doing to refine PVE activities: Raid Fixes – There are times when Atheon and Crota can be uncooperative, so we’re tackling their

The new dimensions will let you store twenty-four (24) ARMOR pieces, thirty-six (36) WEAPONS, and twenty-four (24) GENERAL items. You might be surprised to learn that not all of us have such a vast array of riches. John Hopson is the User Research Lead at Bungie who can peer into every Vault in the Tower.

This time last year, every developer in the studio was focused on a single goal: Preparing Destiny for launch. We were building a new world – and dreaming of the day when the walls would fall away and you’d be invited in to make it your own. That’s what brought us in to work every day. Every Artist. Every Engineer. Every Designer. They were all striving to enable your first steps into that world. The team we’re talking to today supports the

Don’t get too anxious, now. Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops. Without precise calculations, we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova. That’d end our trip real quick… We’re still weeks away. But, before the House of Wolves begins its own descent through the stratosphere with precious cargo in tow, you can expect another

[divider] Move to Strike! As part of 1.1.1, we’re changing the Weekly Heroic Strike to be a matchmade activity. Why? Let’s ask Design Lead M.E. Chung. M.E. We wanted the Weekly Heroics to be a challenge that pushed you and your buddies, but what we observed was that these strikes don’t demand the same cooperation of a cohesive pre-made group.

We promised some weapon tuning. The promise of “before the end of February” is still one we’re aiming to keep.
