With the impending release of Destiny: The Taken King there’s obviously quite a lot of Bungie’s sci-fi shooter about in the headlines, but that’s not all. Just what else was there this week? Read on to find out!
This week saw the release date announced for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s first expansion, “Hearts of Stone”, along with a release trailer; the Executive Producer on Halo 5: Guardians discussed the multiplayer component of the latest game; there was an opinion piece by an anonymous industry insider that slammed game homogenisation as a trend shunning creative developers and players seeking variety; Fallout 4‘s 111K+ lines of dialogue were finished recording and the free updates, seasons pass, mods and creation kit were outlined; and Minecraft: Story Mode‘s release date may have been revealed.
The Xbox Live reputation system is going to be changed; the details of the November Xbox update were listed in a handy bullet-point fashion; you can now buy Xbox One power supply units individually (as opposed to having to buy one with an Xbox One, which makes the unit much more expensive); the September update for Preview Program members was released; and there’s the usual Deals with Gold.
Finally, Destiny‘s new Crucible Mercy Rule was announced; the Japanese showed they know how Destiny‘s good at getting friends together; the 2.0 patch and notes happened; and there was some rather excellent Destiny cosplaying at PAX.
There we go for another week. Until next time!
