Share
This week's highs and lows in PC gaming

We've caught a glimpse at this exclusive content before thanks to a trailer from E3 2017, but now Bungie and Activision have released new, high-res images so you can gawk at your leisure.

"[Destiny 2's improvements] eliminate much of the busy work that was inherent to the original game, and they keep you from feeling the need to go outside the game for third-party tools".

But my biggest takeaway in the first 30 hours was that Destiny 2's campaign told a story where you, the Chosen One, could take the fight back to Ghaul. But PS4 and Xbox One owners can go ahead and download the game now though it will not be unlocked before September 6. Destiny 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. Story missions have made up the bulk of our experience, though we're keen to check out Adventures, Lost Sectors, Public Events, Heroic Public Events, Patrols and Flashpoints. Here are all the details on when Destiny 2 will launch in your region.

Will Destiny 2 out-perform its predecessor?

When the game hits store shelves on September 6th, endgame content won't be available yet.

Belly Of The Beast - Complete the Leviathan raid.

In the lead-up to the September launch of Destiny 2 - the game's subsequent PC release is set for October - Bungie has released a series of character introduction videos to familiarize potential customers with the game's principal cast. Yet even if Bungie needs to encourage players to stop and smell the roses every so often, there has to be a better way to do it than depriving them of the (expected) ability to get around quickly.

• Introducing a brand new Guided Games system that helps players find like-minded groups to experience Destiny 2's most challenging activities, like the Raid.

We will update the guide with more detailed instructions as they become available.

I can not wait to explore the new maps and locations and even give Trials of Osiris another go to try and make it to the Lighthouse for all that awesome Trials gear that everyone wants their hands on.

Lake of Shadows strike - a three-player strike, called the Lake of Shadows. I'd love to see what a sequel will look like with more varied maps, but fingers crossed they add a new Warhammer faction to the game as an enemy this time, too. So instead, enjoy some impressions of Destiny 2 so far.

Finally this week, two games that were previously released on other consoles will join the Nintendo Switch's library... Destiny 2 feels like a fresh origin story if you are a novice to the universe but at the same time feels a ideal build up to a great story to the veteran Guardians.

Humanity's last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion.
