Bungie and Microsoft Considering Destiny 2 Cross-Play

Developer Bungie and Microsoft are interested to add cross-play feature to online-only multiplayer shooter Destiny 2.

Developer studio Bungie has made a name for them with the success of multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny franchise and Destiny 2 has been quite triumphant as well. However, the game is allegedly dying and the company is doing their best to bring their players back. Aside from announcing their third expansion Forsaken, they are considering offering cross-play with D2 and since Microsoft is interested as well, it seems like a good opportunity to play it throughout a wide variety of platforms if not all.

After initially debuting on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game shortly arrived on PC in 2017 only a month after. Players are all drawn into large, futuristic shared world where they play the role of a Guardian of good trying to protect The Last City from an invasion of alien warlord Dominus Ghaul and his Red Legion. Gamers have played the campaign over and over, while participating in many raids and timed community events in multiplayer mode, which is limited to respective platforms.

When asked about the possibility of introducing cross-play to their game, Steve Cotton and Scott Taylor from developer team stated that this is a concept they talk about frequently but currently there is nothing at works regarding this unique feature. Also, there is no chance of having this aspect added to the game before launch of Forsaken DLC. However, it seems that Bungie is very enthusiastic about introducing this feature to D2, we might not have to wait for too long to see it.

Xbox President Mike Ybarra also created a poll on Twitter last month seeking fan response on whether they want to see Destiny 2 get a shared platform gaming experience or not and he got 87 percent of response positive.

Destiny 2 cross-play is a long-cherished fanboy dream that needs to come true as soon as possible and Bungie has been very willing to come on board with that plan. However, things might take an interesting turn considering PlayStation is commonly regarded as the lead console for the series, who adds exclusive content for their platform in each expansion pack and their recent controversies of not willing to offer cross-play on PS4 has already put them in a sticky situation.

RELATED: Destiny 2 "Go Fast" Update Details

Sony faced major backlash regarding account restriction of Fortnite for other consoles and Bethesda has also called them out for not being friendly to make cross-play available on upcoming Fallout 76 game. They seem not to care if they lose players and keep the multiplayer to themselves as they have just sold over 80 million PlayStation 4 units till date. D2: Forsaken will debut on September 4 for all three major platforms and they all would be busy for some time enjoying the new DLC.

Bungie and Activision offers a free weekend to enjoy full Destiny 2 campaign and Crucible for fans on PS4.

With the sequel of 2014's original multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny, developer Bungie and publisher Activision made a huge buck. Destiny 2 was one of the biggest PC launch for the publisher company and did pretty good on consoles as well. If you have somehow missed out the opportunity to be a Guardian and fight to save The Last City from a new ruthless enemy, then you are in luck because a Free Weekend offer on D2 is just on the horizon for PlayStation 4 owners.

Whereas, games like team-based FPS shooter Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment or tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege from Ubisoft throw out Free Weekend for fans to play trail of their game every other month, Bungie took no part in that sport so far. Maybe a few instance in the beginning, but not for a while afterwards. However, they are offering a trail that lets you play full campaign, where you can fight against the invasion by alien warlord Dominus Ghaul and his Red Legion.

All existing game modes and all the gears are up for grabs throughout the whole weekend for free. Just like always, all of your progress made through the trail can be transferred to the main game if you decide to purchase it later. Even though all those rumors of D2 is dead because of a decaying fan-base and their terrible decisions with DLC distribution are not entirely true, looks like Bungie is trying to revitalize Destiny community for their upcoming Forsaken expansion pack and a slight selling advantages.

Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter from Bungie and Activision, available on all major platforms. Earlier this month, a Free Weekend trail on Xbox One was thrown as well for Xbox Live Gold members from June 7. We are only wondering if they are willing to offer something similar to players on PC anytime soon. Otherwise, it just looks like one-sidedness towards console gamers, while a better chunk of the community might feel left out.

Developer/publisher Nintendo is known for their family-friendly video games and they encourage young players to enjoy their titles. However, that is at risk now as hackers have found a way that lets them upload custom avatars of their choosing for their profiles in Super Mario Odyssey and as a result, pornographic images starts showing up in the game, which some of the Nintendo Switch owners have noticed lately and many unchecked children are now at risk of viewing mature content.

Players have to find out hidden balloons all over the world in this mode and upon finding them out; it shows the avatar of the person who hid it. Usually, what we see in those avatars are mostly pictures of Nintendo characters and Miis, but people started discovering unpleasant images that are straight out pornographic content.

Apparently, a leaked DevMenu has been causing people to get past these normal protocols of the game, which another Reddit user claimed to get his hands on after buying a Switch this week.

What he thought as a “defective” Switch from eBay was actually an EDEV unit, which is a console for developers.

With a custom firmware, installing DevMenu is actually pretty simple but unfortunately, people started to misuse the data already by exposing a huge number of children to the threat of watching NSFW images.

Looks like developer BioWare is also planning to lag behind with their upcoming action role-playing game Anthem.

Being an online multiplayer game, Anthem sure has the potential to be enjoyed over cross-platform play. What we saw by far at E3 2018 press conference, huge scope for exploring the story and rich gameplay will only be increased if players are allowed to play together over PC and consoles concurrently. However, despite everyone hoping for the game to be a milestone example of how much fun cross-play can be, BioWare is apparently opting out of that idea for now if not permanently.

Executive producer Mark Darrah of the developer studio has been answering a lot of questions from fans on Twitter and one such topic was about cross-play. When asked, he simply stated that currently they have no plans for that during the release but that doesn't mean they would never do that in any point. So, we can probably keep our hope alive just on the basis of that comment. Belonging to PC, who has many friends over consoles have to sit this one down for now and the time being.

Playing in squads are always fun and the way BioWare has build a vast world for their action RPG could become a huge hit if they would've embraced the movement but this push-back might not be appreciated by the players. Then in another Tweet, someone asked for their plans regarding any post-launch DLC content and that particular response wasn't very cheering either. It appears that the developers are treating the project on "games-as-service" model but that can change as well.

If they could only considered this idea of playing over all platforms together, it could become a huge selling point for the game for sure. BioWare's online multiplayer game Anthem is currently marked for a February 22, 2019 release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No matter how anticipating the game is, the news of it being devoid of cross-play or any post-launch DLC sounds like a nightmare that would diminish the fun in overall.

In an attempt to bring back players to the game, they decided to raise the stakes more than they ever did. They have introduced the threats of aliens trying to destroy the world before and it worked too but the studio believed taking a fan-favorite personality like Cayde off the board will be so much relatable to players on personal level.

D2 community has been devastated since they witnessed this and the Destiny subreddit is the solid proof of that with the increasing number of goofs and memes in the loving memory of Cayde-6. On September 4, Destiny 2: Forsaken is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We hope that Guardians get their hands on Uldren Sov to get their revenge on their fallen comrade and settle scores then.

Their next big expansion for the game, Forsaken is expected to breathe new life in it when it is released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 4, 2018.

This brand-new expansion is bringing new contents like two new locations to discover and will introduce a new 4v4 endgame mode called Gambit. This shared-world shooter has been suffering from post-game content for a long time upon release and hopefully Gambit mode might just fix that problem. One of the new locations to explore is called The Tangled Shore and the second one is The Dreaming City. Guardians will find new secrets to unravel and dreadful bosses to take on.
