The new exotic machine gun, Xenophage is available in Shadowkeep now that Festival of the Lost has begun. The quest isn’t too complex, but there are moments where it gets a bit meticulous.

When I logged into Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, I was excited to return to the moon. There is a lot of nostalgia in returning to the moon in this game and it’s obvious as soon as you load in that Bungie was wisely aware of that.Continue reading “Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is nostalgic and enjoyable (story review)”
A lot of cool news came out of Gamescom this week, including game-play looks at anticipated games like Death Stranding, Watch Dog: Legion, Cyberpunk 2077, Borderlands 3, Gears 5 and Doom Eternal. In addition to those announcements, we also found out about some existing games that will be updating their content for the fall season.
Bungie announces two different content loops for October expansion!
On the Xbox stage at Gamescom, Bungie showed up to discuss some of the changes being made to the Destiny 2 interface going into the fall expansion. They also released a trailer for the next story of the franchise, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
Later that night, they released another trailer on the Opening Night Live stage to announce the Season of the Undying content loop. While the main story of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep focuses on the Hives’ further perversion of the moon, Season of the Undying will focus on the Vex and revisiting of the Black Garden. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep will be available on October 1, 2019.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne gets Horizon Zero Dawn crossover!
Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy will be a playable character in a crossover event with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Capcom released a trailer announces the collaboration in the Monster Hunter Worlds new expansion this week though a date has not been revealed. The full expansion for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be available on September 6, 2019.
DLC Packs Galor!
Several DLC packs were announced this week.
Rocket League’s Rocket Pass 4 will offer a new Mudcat Battle-Car, additional rewards, and bonus XP starting August 28, 2019.
Mortal Kombat 11’s new pack will bring Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Terminator T-800, Sindel, Joker, and Spawn to the game as playable characters.

Jump Force added new playable characters to its game as well. Majin Buu of Dragon Ball Z and Katsuki Bakugo from My Hero Academia will be available with early access to the DLC on August 23, 2019.
I watched a good amount of Gamescom day one streaming on YouTube yesterday. There were a lot of high profile announcements with Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Gears 5, Death Stranding, and Borderlands 3 preparing for launch. But I also saw 3 games in particular that piqued my interest.
I’ve listed them below:
Dead by Daylight: Stranger Things
If you are familiar with Dead by Daylight, you know its creepy and horrifying to be chased by a huge stalking figure while trying to escape an even creepier atmosphere. The new update for this horror survival game is coming out in September and the highlight is Stranger Things. The Demogorgen a long with Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington will be playable characters in the game developed by Behaviour Interactive.
The Disintegration trailer came off with Destiny vibes. That makes sense because the co-creator of Halo, Marcus Lento helped make this property with V1 Interactive & Private Division. It’s described as a sci-fi fps. Honestly the character in the cinematic looks like a exo Titan, especially in the face. It’s a first person shooter where you sit in an oversized sparrow known as a Gravcycle while managing a group of combatants on the ground.
Need For Speed Heat
Need For Speed Heat is an upcoming release from Electronic Arts (EA). If nothing about this game intrigues you about this game, it should definitely be the assumed amount of customization . There is an app component to allow players to customize their vehicle and import it into the game that launches in November 2019. Plus, there is a level of player customization as well. It gave me GTA racing vibes honestly. And, there is said to be no loot boxes in this game.
How excited am I about the new expansion for Destiny 2?
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!
