Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is stay, and so too is the brand new seasonal storyline, Season of the Risen, which runs till Could 24 and sees the stalwart Guardians teaming up with their former foes within the Cabal to combat off Savathûn’s Hive, which now wields the facility of the Mild.
I am truthfully undecided what the Cabal brings to the occasion, given what squishy punching luggage they have been within the unique Future 2. How they got here to be seen as some sort of intergalactic Immortals is past me: I butchered hundreds of them earlier than I obtained drained (and, frankly, began to really feel just a little dangerous about the entire thing) and gave up. However right here they’re, right here we’re, and it is time to throw down with a brand new(ish) foe.
For many who desire a extra granular take a look at what’s taking place, Bungie has dropped the complete replace 188.8.131.52 patch notes, detailing a variety of adjustments, fixes, and changes to actions, weapons, armor, courses, the UI, and extra. Season cross rewards have been modified up, the physics knockback from boss stomps has been toned down (a change that may make our international model supervisor Tim Clark happy), Tangled Shore and the Forsaken marketing campaign have been vaulted, and windowed HDR is now supported on Home windows 10 and past.
The one actual shock in that patch notes, not less than for individuals who’ve been following the pre-release hype practice avidly, is a beforehand unannounced nerf to the Protecting Mild mod, which can now solely grant 10% harm discount. Bungie defined that with the ability to beforehand mitigate a lot hazard had led to the mod turning into ubiquitous, which often means a rebalance. As a substitute, the harm discount from the Effectively of Tenacity mod has been bumped to 50%. Sees a good commerce on condition that it is more durable to proc and lasts much less time.
At this level, the launch of The Witch Queen appears to be going very easily so far as this stuff go. Gamers are in and enjoying, and even the third occasion gear managing instruments like Future Merchandise Supervisor are again on-line. I do not wish to tempt destiny, however… it is virtually too clean.
The total checklist of adjustments within the new Future 2 patch is method to huge to submit right here—head over to bungie.net for the entire thing.
