NetEase invests $100 million in Bungie

The next two weeks could make or break the 'Destiny' franchise

Bungie has much riding on Destiny 2's first big yearly expansion, dubbed Forsaken, due out in September.

You can catch the stream live on Tuesday June 5 at 9am PDT / 11am CDT / Noon EDT / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST / 2am Wednesday June 6 AEST.

Destiny 2 has received its fair share of criticism in the past year, but Bungie has spent that time listening to feedback and working toward making the Destiny experience ones that players feel rewarded with coming back to. One of the new locations, The Dreaming City, was detailed a little, and it's going to include a new raid. While before, weapons were part of specific groups, you can now equip whatever you want in each slot, so you could potentially have three rifles or three shotguns if you choose to. The expansion will also include a few extra changes, including "a new weapon slot system, Random Rolls, improvements to the mods system, and numerous other quality-of-life improvements". A first-of-its kind for Destiny, Gambit is a new, hybrid 4v4 mode that merges both PvE and PvP experiences into an epic battle. There will also be a new raid area, The Dreaming City, for Guardians to explore. An arc warlock class was also but Bungie didn't jump into details about specific supers. "I'm looking forward to watching players get their hands on some of the most requested features requested by the dedicated Destiny 2 community". Raid design lead Joe Blackburn promises it will have "more bosses than any raid we've ever had before".

This resulted in a "highly personalized" anti-cancer therapy that yielded "complete tumor regression", the researchers wrote. They found these women may benefit from surgery and hormone therapy and may not have to go through chemotherapy treatments.

Forsaken also features a new competitive and collaborative endgame activity called "Gambit". Bungie says it's like a mix of PvE and PvP - something Destiny's never really had before.

Where things get interesting is Gambit allows one player from each team to invade their opponent's arena.

This will block them from being able to collect motes until it is taken out. According to GamesIndustry.biz, NetEase announced this partnership noting "that Bungie founder and chief creative officer Jason Jones 'will begin the creation of new worlds'". Since then, Bungie has released has released roadmaps and content updates, notably the second expansion - Warmind - which came out in May. They'll focus more on gameplay instead of cinematics, so you'll be getting new weapons, but not the cinematics that go with them. The Annual Pass will include three DLCs, the Black Armory in winter of this year, Joker's Wild next spring, and Penumbra next summer.
