Destiny 2’s latest update adds Masterwork weapons, changes engram drop rates, and fixes Mercury’s cannon

Okay, that's not actually the big one, but it's the most amusing. Funny, yes, but the real impact (so to speak) on players is that it effectively locked them out of public events on Mercury. The Masterwork weapons announced a couple of weeks ago are also live: Legendary weapons can now drop as Masterworks for players above Power level 250, which grants them randomized bonuses and Orb generation on multikills. More importantly, they give players something else to chase, and thus a reason to keep

5 things Rainbow Six Siege is doing better than other multiplayer shooters

Off the back of a 50-percent discount on all versions of the game in November, last weekend Siege hit 100,000 concurrent players, an all-time peak.

With Overwatch and Dirty Bomb, Siege is one of the few shooters where you can run an all-female team; 12 of the 36 operators are women. It's one of

Bungie addresses ‘Curse of Osiris’ locked content in Destiny 2; Promises changes, offers details

The Curse of Osiris expansion blocked player access to some of the in-game content in Destiny 2 thanks to a raised Power Level requirement. Destiny 2 players spoke out against the locked content and Bungie has responded acknowledging that they have made "some mistakes." Trials of The Nine will only require Curse of Osiris when it features a Curse of Osiris map. Because of this, we will update “The Prestige” Achievement/Trophy to only reference The Prestige Raid. Normal Nightfall will only requir

Assassin’s Creed Origins patch targets performance and NPC behaviour, adds ‘Nightmare’ mode

In his review, Chris praised Assassin's Creed Origins' "brilliant" setting and new systems that combine well with the series formula.

Destiny 2’s Next Faction Rally Has Been Postponed

Originally planned to go live December 12, the monthly Faction Rally event has been postponed due to the fact that those without Curse of Osiris would have been locked out of the event.

It’s all part of changes that developer Bungie is making to endgame and seasonal content in Destiny 2, which includes the Faction Rally. In the developer’s origina
