It is yet another week where Activation Blizzard’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) Destiny players welcome yet another weekly update from the game’s developer Bungie. The weekly update, which has now been renamed as “This week at Bungie,” gives light to what players of the game can expect in the coming days and what Bungie has in store for the remaining of Destiny’s Year Two.
The first important announcement made in the post was that the weekly livestream event from Bungie, which was announced last week, is set to air its first episode on March 2. The initial plan for the weekly livestream event is to work through a series of “Ride Along” segments which are going to feature Bungie’s senior artist Andrew Hopps and designer Brian Frank as they talk about the art work and design of Oryx’s Dreadnaught ship. The episodes that follow are going to take us behind-the-scenes of Destiny, as well as episodes that include the Sound Effects and Music team. The weekly update also mentions that every run of the Ride Along segment is going to be accompanied by a “full blog post” with details about that particular segment.
The weekly update also announced the return of the Bungie Bounty event where a reward is placed on a particular clan in a particular game mode. With all of that said, perhaps the most important announcement out of the weekly update was the announcement of new PvE content. Yes, we have been facing the ultimate drought of content since a few months now and the community has been looking to Bungie for new content and replay value. Well, it looks like Bungie has heard that feedback. The weekly update mentions that there is a spring update planned for Destiny which will include “new gear to earn and equip,” along with “new challenges for PvE players” and bringing in “a significant increase to the light levels”.
This is good news for the community. We’ll wait for more details on the upcoming spring update before garnering an insight about its potential. Nevertheless, the news is pretty much welcomed by the whole community and we cannot wait to see what Bungie has in store for Guardians of the last city.
