Destiny 2: Shadowkeep announced, Bungie’s new direction is exciting!

How excited am I about the new expansion for Destiny 2?

Very!

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is coming out September 17, 2019. I think I can speak for a lot of the Destiny community and say that hearing Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy talk about all of the changes Bungie has implemented as a result of separating from Activision was like breathing new air. They released a new ViDoc and Trailer for Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.

I personally tweeted that watching the ViDoc in the live-stream from Bungie felt like watching a butterfly emerge from a cocoon. This is a very exciting time to be a Destiny fan, especially off the back of the Season of Opulence release this week.

Important notes from the stream:

  • Destiny 2: Shadowkeep releases this fall. You have the option to purchase it as a stand-alone if you don’t have Destiny 2 yet or as an expansion.
  • As of the release of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Destiny 2 will be an Action-MMO single evolving world that you can play anywhere you want using cross-save.
  • PC players will now be on Steam
  • Stand-alone Content
  • New Light will be a free download that gets new players into new content within 15 minutes.
  • They’ll be no more exclusive activities.
  • You can buy all content moving forward stand-alone.
  • Google’s Stadia partnership launches with Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
  • The current life cycle of Destiny 2 will be bundled and available for $40.

Exciting mentions from the ViDoc include:

  • We’re going back to the moon
  • They’ll be armor trans mods
  • New movements and abilities for sub-classes
  • PVP updates
  • Black Garden Raid

I think I saw Crota in the ViDoc as well. That’d be a great throwback!

Take a look at the ViDoc for yourself:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (trailer review)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases October 25, 2019. It looks so good! The voice over of the solider talking about his duty is so compelling. My favorite line in the trailer has to be when the character says, “We get dirty, but the world stays clean. That’s the mission”. That was amazing.

I’m expecting story mode to make a come back in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare because that was very well put together. I wouldn’t expect so much emphasis on the solider if the player character wasn’t coming back.

Last week there was a little laughter after Activision revealed the title would simply be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare because we’ve had one of those. But, I’m looking forward to more current events and more of what makes Call of Duty special.

Update: Infinity Ward confirmed there is cross play for PC-console platforms! Plus no season pass.

Feels great man!
