DLC News Xbox LIVE Xbox One Xbox One S

So with the dust finally settled on Gamescom and the whirlwind of news that has come through for so many games in the past few weeks including Destiny, it’s now time to settle down and start piecing together what has happened. Late for the party I know but let’s start with the Destiny: The Collection announcement.

As we all know Destiny’s next expansion Rise of the Iron is due next month and so to entice more newcomers to the game Bungie and Activision Publishing Inc. have announced Destiny: The Collection. This five in one set contains every release from the award-winning action shooter franchise to date. That’s, Destiny, The Dark Below, The House of Wolves, The Taken King and even the new large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron, for those that didn’t know. For legacy gen players, Destiny: The Collection marks the opportunity to transition to playing Destiny on a current gen system through the upgrade programme which runs until 31st January, 2017.

As an added treat, players who pre-order Destiny: The Collection or Rise of Iron will receive the black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn, a fan favourite weapon making its return to power. Those that pre-order digitally or at select retailers will also receive the Iron Gjallarwing Sparrow.

Destiny: The Collection will launch alongside Rise of Iron on 20th September, 2016 priced at £49.99 for the Xbox One.  Gamers who pre-purchase Destiny: The Collection digitally will be able to experience Destiny, The Dark Below, House of Wolves and The Taken King immediately, while awaiting the release of Rise of Iron.

    This is great but the most annoying thing Bungie isn’t resolving ever is the terrible network architecture they use for this was ported from Halo days. Anyone remember the craptacular lag Halo had? Well it’s back and they’re not doing anything to improve it; so buyer beware–if you’re expecting a great PvP gaming experience it’s NOT on this platform at all… trust me I’m a big fan and this is the one HUGE problem with this game. NEVER RECOMMENDING TO SEASONED PVP PLAYERS. ever!

    Very good point – it’s all well and good bringing out new dlc’s and content updates but if you don’t fix the underlying game in the first place then what’s the point. A lesson alot of development teams could learn.
