Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike and Prestige Raid Will Change

Activision and Bungie presents multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 has been doing pretty well since the release. The developers have made some significant changes to a part of Destiny and Destiny 2, the weekly Nightfall strikes. Since Nightfall strikes are considered one of the hardest in the game and has been receiving a lot of opinions lately, Bungie decides to shake things up a little alongside the difficulties of Prestige raids in upcoming updates.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike and Prestige Raid Will Change

In original Destiny, there was no timer in Nightfall and players could just wander around the whole time of the game to avoid enemies but when the sequel have introduced this new feature, that is no longer possible. Addressing this issue that raised a few controversies, Bungie decided to bring some change to it so that the glory it had back in the days are restored once again.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike Scoring

RELATED: Destiny 2 Crimson Days Event Announced

According to game director Christopher Barrett, when version 1.1.3 update for Destiny 2 will launch on February 27, players will see where the game is going from there. Strike scoring system of the game will also be changed a bit, so that you actually want to go looking for a kill instead of ditching them all the time. Like it or not, that's really good for your gaming spirit.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Challenge Card

When the update will go live, it will work somewhat like this:

  • The overall score of your group will include the solo scores of your team members, which will also show up in strike leaderboards. The performance of every single members of the team will be summed up to the score.

  • Only kills are what matters most to the score after the update. How often do you use your super abilities and generate Orbs of Light also counts though.

  • Playing it quicker will be rewarding for your score but if you take too much time, you only better your chances of lowering your score. For instance, if you already have spent 15 minutes into the game, you will only receive half the points. 18 minutes and you won't earn any more new points. So, finish the strike as early as possible.

  • It would be really painful to see your score diminished over time but considering everything else the same, if another team in the strike clears before you then they get higher score than yours.

Following the version 1.1.3 update, you will be able to earn Challenge Cards right after you complete a Nightfall game, which will only be applicable for the Prestige version of the strike. Players can now tune in their preferred difficulty settings using new modifiers (Arc/Solar Singe/Void) tied to these cards. These unique modifiers will either boost damage or help you score high despite your less damage rate.

Destiny 2 Inverted Spire Emblem

RELATED: Destiny 2 Warlock Glitch Will Fix After "The Dawning"

Bungie will introduce a special emblem to Nightfall strike for Destiny 2, which will generate an aura over the head of your Guardian on the display only if you can go beyond a certain score. Crossing that specific mark will not just raise Vanguard token drops by 25 percent but your entire fireteam will receive buff as well as you. However, before bringing all these changes to the update, the developer team wants to get more feedback on their current idea from players.

The Inverted Spire Emblem

The Prestige mode for Eater of Worlds has been pushed to May and there is a five-month long lag with the Leviathan, which almost everyone is complaining about right now. The developers simply didn't want to release it as it currently is and they just wanted to add some flavors of their own to make it worth your time. Because, for the past couple of months, Bungie was working on it by testing out new ways to add difficulties and try to increase the replaying value of the raid.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Modifier

Prestige Raids will also present different challenges to you every week and the challenges will vary each time. For example, you can be forced to undergo an entire raid with a specific gun for your guardian against deadly enemies. The objective of new Prestige mode here is to keep the players engaged by switching new weapons to your vault and more rewards to earn. This update isn't going to drop until May for all Leviathan raid though.

Released to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Destiny 2 became an instant hit and also was one of the most successful titles of 2017. Despite that, many in-game issues have been drawing players out of the game and Bungie is taking these new initiatives to attract back the gamers back in the fold to make it great again.

Destiny 2 Crimson Days Event Announced

Back in the time of online-based multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny, developer Bungie used to have Valentine’s Day-themed seasonal event Crimson Days. Now that Destiny 2 is the newest installment in the series that is immensely successful on all platforms and Valentine’s Day is coming next week, they are bringing the event back once again for this very special occasion to celebrate with the fans and let them have some fun too.

Right before the big-day love, on February 13, Crimson Days event will be going live for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Much like the previous instance, it will be a competitive multiplayer mode for 2v2 matches on a Crucible map called The Burnout, previously known as the Burning Shrine. In these round-based Clash mode game, you should try to keep up with your teammate for quick recharge of your abilities.

Another reason to not get too far from your partner is that you will lose buff and your awaiting enemy will easily find you using a waypoint. Even if you get detached from your colleague for a while, there is a marker to guide you back again. This can be proven very handy when you are teaming-up with some random person for the lack of a partner in Destiny 2. The game has an efficient matchmaking system so that if you join the match solo, you can still find someone to partner up.

One of the primary perks of 2018's Crimson Days event is the chance of getting handful of cosmetic items. According to Bungie, completing the Crimson Days Crucible playlist firsthand will be the best way to earn rewards and the rewarding system is centered on single-character play. Most of the time, you will find rewards in a new Crimson Engram and there is a “knock-out” list to make sure that you don't end up having duplicate items like during The Dawning.

RELATED: Destiny 2 XP Scaling System Removed


Aside from all these regular prizes, Bungie claims to have other special rewards that can only be achieved through certain means.

  • To get the Fire of the Crimson Days Emblem and the Tirastrella Ghost Shell, you have to finish five Crimson Days matches for completing “Welcome to Crimson Days” highlight and you have to pay Lord Shaxx a visit in the Tower.

  • The Undeterred Exotic Sparrow gun can be yours upon completion of Crimson Days Crucible playlist.

  • By completing Leviathan Raid or the Raid Lair: Eater of Worlds you can achieve the sick-looking Dieselpunk Exotic Ornament for Wardcliff Coil straight outta final chest.

  • Earn the Flaunting Dance Emote by finishing Nightfall Strike within the Crimson Days event week.

Regardless of your actions on Crimson Days, you and your partner will get an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram as soon as you level up. Crimson Engrams are of course, not limited to this seasonal event of Destiny 2 and you can only achieve them from gameplay so that no one can claim for any attempt of forcing players to spend real-world money. From the in-game store Eververse, you can buy gears and items in exchange for Bright Dust, which will also be added to the “knock-out” list.

RELATED: Bungie on Destiny 2 PC Bans


Since Crimson Engrams are not limited to Crimson Days, there's no cap on how many of them you can earn. However, there is a level cap for your Guardian and if you are a non-DLC owner, then it is 20. For those who own the Curse of Osiris DLC expansion will need to reach 25 to be eligible for level-up reward Engrams.

RELATED: Destiny 2 McFarlane Figures First Look

You can also consider Bungie being this much generous with Crimson Days to compensate the players for from last year’s The Dawning event, which saw quite a backlash from the disappointed fans. So, bringing back a popular Mercury-based map from the original Destiny was not a bad idea. Debuting on February 13, Crimson Days event will run for a week to come until February 20.

This piece of content will feature some surprising and bizarre elements for the game's DLC.

While detailing about the upcoming DLC offerings, a new story trailer with a new cinematic is released by the developer/publisher studio Ubisoft for Far Cry 5.

In Lost on Mars expansion, you will discover yourself stranded on the titular red planet fighting off giant alien spiders to save thyself.

Nostalgic fans of Far Cry 3 can now go back to enjoy their favorite game once again and so are the new generation of players with this remastered version.

The digital version of the content will cost you only $89.99 and you have to spend $99.99 if you are looking for a physical copy.

Star Wars Battlefront II Missed Sales Targets

If things would've been different, Star Wars Battlefront II could have been the successful action shooter video game everyone hoped for it to be. Instead, it becomes such an abomination of the series that the fans held in such high standards previously. All because of Electronic Arts’ (not-so) bright idea of introducing the concept of micro-transactions through in-game loot boxes and thus, causing massive fan outrage.

Star Wars Battlefront II Missed Sales Targets

Recently, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson of Electronic Arts have revealed their most anticipated release of last year, Battlefront II have failed to meet their expected sales target in their quarterly earnings conference call. EA expected to sell at least 10 million copies within the end of December, which is the third quarter of their 2018 fiscal year but so far, they have shipped only 9 million copies of the game and therefore they are one million copies short to meet the estimated sales target.

RELATED: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Update for Star Wars Battlefront II

According to Wall Street Journal, EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen states that they require to sell 1 million to 3 million units more within the end of March, the conclusion of the fiscal year. Even if they manage to do that somehow, Battlefront II will still remain behind the previous game of the series, Star Wars Battlefront that shipped over 14 million copies within 2016 fiscal year and was more appreciated by the fans than the current installment.

RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Controversy Hurts EA Stock Price

When the much-controversial micro-transaction outrage hit EA in the face before the release of the game, they have removed it almost immediately and as a result, players cannot purchase the in-game currency of "Crystals Pack" or any other loot crates anymore. The company also said that they will eventually bring it back and Jorgensen reminded us that they are bringing the in-game purchase system in a few months when they deem fit.

RELATED: Reddit Bashed EA Over Battlefront II Loot Boxes

Needless to say that, the failing to meet sales target was largely because of the greedy attempts of EA to try and slip through the pay-to-win policy in-game. As for an AAA game developer, this move was pretty careless considering people already spending $60 for a full-priced game. At first, many have appreciated them for not including any overpriced season pass DLC but then players found out that Battlefront II has locked weapons and player upgrades after the Beta went public.

Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker Are Locked

Before the release of Star Wars Battlefront II, EA promised to include many fan-favorite and legendary Star Wars characters from all three trilogies of the series but then EA locked out classic characters like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker behind shady paywalls, which was a major disappointment for the dedicated fan-base of Star Wars franchise. Contents based on The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi movie could have added more attraction for the consumers if they hadn't done what they did.

RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Micro-Transactions Outrage

Although CEO Andrew Wilson denies it completely, rumor in the air is that, this move has also cost their previous tidy relationship with Disney. Back then, things escalated so much so after a post on Reddit caused the loot crate controversy that Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger had to step up right away and make EA back out of their of pay-to-win practices at that instant.

RELATED: Emperor Palpatine Joins Star Wars Battlefront II

Currently, Star Wars Battlefront II is available worldwide to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Despite considering all the shady moves Electronic Arts tried to pull for a few extra bucks, Battlefront II is pretty enjoyable and even without access of the legendary hero characters upfront, you can still have a good time playing the game and explore the Star Wars universe in your own way.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Maps

On November 3, 2017, first person shooter Call of Duty: WWII was released from Sledgehammer Games and Activision as the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise. Within two months of its initial release not only the game brought $1 billion, it also managed to become one of the record-breaking bestselling console game from Activision. If you have already finished the game and wondering what else is next, you've got the very first DLC of CoD: WWII incoming.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Map Details

Previously, Activision showcased another preview trailer for The Resistance DLC pack detailing what players can expect to find and the studio has been developing this expansion.




Although, many of the players are currently busy with the first community event "Winter Siege", we believe this new trailer for the first DLC of Call of Duty: WWII titled "The Resistance" is worth to look at.




The Resistance DLC of CoD: WWII is bringing three brand-new multiplayer maps to explore as well as a new War Mode mission called Operation Intercept. Also, let's not just forget about "The Darkest Shore" for Nazi Zombies mode. The expansion pack will drop on PlayStation 4 next week on January 30, only a month before arriving on PC and Xbox One.

War Mode - Operation Intercept
Probably one of the best features of The Resistance expansion pack is the brand-new War Mode mission: Operation Intercept. Operation Intercept is mostly comprised of rescue missions set in urban locations outside of St. Lo, France. Players are tasked as Allied Forces members to rescue French resistance fighters from the Axis foes and lead them to safety. Once freed, the next objective is to destroy all the key communication gears and lead a tank to an Axis train carrying weapons.

A New War Mission

The Axis side will try to keep the Allies from retrieving the Resistance fighters to join their cause. They will also guard their comms and halt the tank from reaching the train at any cost. Since the Axis soldiers are well equipped to repair their damaged radios, the objective will not be so easy to complete. This however, is not the only challenge that will force you to rethink your moves, Call of Duty: WWII has much more in stock to keep you entertained.

For now, we've shed enough light on Operation Intercept, so let's focus on the three new multiplayer maps The Resistance has to offer.

Map 1: Valkyrie
Set in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, Valkyrie is the first map that comes along with the DLC. This one is based on The Wolf’s Lair of Hitler, which he used as his Eastern-front headquarters when Nazi forces were invading the Soviet Union. It's the site of Operation Valkyrie, where attempts of taking down the FĂĽhrer in real-world by his high-ranking officers and failed eventually. This medium-sized map demands that you keep an eye on several overwatch positions and mounted machine guns in places.

Map 2: Anthropoid
The second multiplayer map Anthropoid is also inspired by a real event called Operation Anthropoid from the time of World War II, where a high-ranking German officer was the target on an assassination attempt. Anthropoid map is located in occupied Prague, Czechoslovakia and because of the urban setting of the map; you will experience a unique diversity of gameplay on this one.

call of duty wwii the resistance occupation map

Map 3: Occupation
The final map on the list, Occupation and is a remake of a classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map Resistance. This one involves the players to gunning around the streets of a German-occupied Paris and there are a lot of mid-range combats. Occupation is one of the most iconic pieces for the Resistance movement during World War II that it had to be included in The Resistance DLC. While you are playing in it, you can even notice the Eiffel Tower in the background at some point.

We Happy Few is Delayed Again

A psychedelic horror game from Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing, We Happy Few will take you to 60's English town, Wellington Wells for a survival experience of a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy". The game had a release date set for April 13, 2018 to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide. However, if you were looking forward to get into that adventure, you will have to wait a bit longer than that.

we happy few video game
We Happy Few is Delayed Again

Below is an important production update from developer Compulsion Games by producer Guillaume Provost and COO Sam Abbott that sheds light on the matter we are talking about here.




The high hopes of entering in an alternate reality jolly old England of the 1960's through the game We Happy Few is once again delayed and the developers got reason for that. So far, they are already done completing all the content they intended for the game but after some observation, they realized that the title could use some more work to be better than it is now and for that to happen, they will need some more time to give it a polish.

RELATED: We Happy Few Announced for PlayStation 4

All Compulsion Games wants to do is to change and rebuild the first few hours of We Happy Few to give it their desired look and that pushes the game to summer of 2018. The game featured three different campaigns to play with and one of them needs some more work, which is the protagonist Arthur’s story. So, the dev team is pausing and getting back to it again to give meanings to his narrative. The end of the video also reveals another main character of the game, Sally and there is still one more to reveal.

Beginning with a Kickstarter campaign, We Happy Few successfully entered Early Access on Steam and for Xbox One. The game already left a bad impression to the eagerly anticipating players when it was priced for $60 for being a "full sized, retail game". Developers are offering a refund opportunity for anyone who purchased the game on Early Access and they will remove the game from Steam on February 1 until a later day near release.
