Destiny: Age of Triumph – everything that’s changed in Crota’s End, and how to complete the Challenge Modes

29 Mar

Destiny’s Age of Triumph event brings back the Crota’s End raid this week. Here’s what you need to know.

Destiny: Rise of Iron players can check in with Age of Triumph, a new event kicking off this week, to check out a stack of new stuff to do.

Most excitingly, Age of Triumph brings back old raids with little tweaks and a big difficulty boost, putting them on par with Destiny: Rise of Iron content. The first raid to get this treatment is Crota’s End.

If you’ve never played Crota’s End before, you’re in for a treat (and we have a Destiny: The Dark Below Crota’s End raid guide for you) but in the video above, Arekkz talks us through what’s changed in Crota’s End with Destiny: Age of Triumph and details both challenge modes. This information is reproduced in text below.

Destiny: Age of Triumph Crota’s End raid changes

    Stage 1: Abyss

  • More adds, including Wizards, at the bridge construction in the abyss section.

    Stage 2: Bridge

  • After the fourth Guardian crosses the bridge in the second section, the bridge will become solid (“the path is whole”) and Guardians can leave plates freely.
  • Six swords will spawn once all Guardians cross the bridge in the second section, and remain until the encounter is complete.
  • Multiple Gatekeepers will spawn once all Guardians cross the bridge. Ten Gatekeepers must be killed to open the gate out of the second section.

    Crota encounter

  • Healing Chalice available even in Hard Mode
  • Oversoul spawns after every damage phase rather than on Guardian death
  • Ledge outside glass wall blocked off

Destiny: Age of Triumph – Crota’s End Challenge Mode details

Deathsinger Challenge Mode: kill Ir Yut with a Swordbearer’s sword

After killing the Wizards and Shriekers, take down all adds and the Knights in the Deathsinger’s chamber, then leave. This will cause Ir Yut to “shriek in fear”, and spawn new adds in the external area. Take down all these enemies, including three Ogres and the Knights in the towers, to spawn a Swordbearer. Kill them and take the sword to the Deathsinger’s Chmaber; Ir Yu will go down in one swing.

The Deathsinger challenge mode awards an emblem, an ornament for raid gear, and a guaranteed Adept raid weapon.

Crota Challenge Mode: rotate Guardian swordbearers

As it says on the tin, use a new Guardian as swordbearer during each damage phase of the Crota encounter. Sorry! You’re going to have to learn to use the sword. Luckily if your swordbearers can land six hits with each damage phase you’ll only need three swordbearers total, as Crota takes 16 hits to kill.

The Crota challenge mode also awards an ornament for raid gear, a guaranteed Adept raid weapon, and the emblem if you didn’t already get it from Ir Yut.

Destiny: Age of Triumph – how to get the new and improved Necrochasm

29 Mar

Destiny: Rise of Iron players can dive into Age of Triumph and revisit an old favourite, the Necrochasm.

Destiny brings back Ncrochasm, a beloved weapon of yesteryear, with the Age of Triumph event available to Rise of Iron players right now.

Necrochasm is an Exotic auto rifle originally found in The Dark Below, Destiny’s first DLC. As well as being the first delightfully creepy Hive weapon and a pretty decent boomstick, it obtained near mythological status because of how difficult it could be to get.

To obtain Necrochasm in the old days, Destiny players had to pray to RNGesus for the rubbish weapon Husk of the Pit to drop from Blades of Crota, a rare enemy found in events or one mission. They then had to upgrade it fully to Eidolon Ally, then pray to RNGesus again for a Crux of Crota – an item that could only drop in the Crota’s End raid.

“Surely the Age of Triumph version of Necrochasm is easier than that,” you may interject. Luckily: yes, but you still need to obtain a Husk of the Pit drop to kick things off. Following the Age of Triumph update, Husk of the Pit may drop as a Nightfall reward, as a random drop in high level story missions, or as a drop from Ogre enemies anywhere. Farm high level strikes and story playlists against Hive for a good chance to obtain Husk of the Pit.

To upgrade Husk of the Pit to Eidolon Ally, you need to murder Thralls. In the video above. Arekkz suggests using the missions The Dark Below on the Moon, at the infamous “We’ve woken the Hive” scene, but my own preference is Siege of the Warmind, an Earth mission, which has a similar Thrall rush. Both missions allow you to go to orbit and return to repeat your Thrall murder spree once the enemies run out, as long as you don’t advance far enough to trigger the checkpoint. When you have killed enough Thrall, you can activate the Cannibalism node on Husk of the Pit.

With this done, visit the Speaker to upgrade Husk of the Pit to Eidolon Ally and receive some Motes of Light – hold on to them. Visit Eris for the next quest step: cleansing Eidolon Ally so it can be turned into necrochasm. To do this you’ll need to defeat the first stage of the Crota’s End raid, and then the final boss of Crota’s End, which is of course Crota himself. Finally, you need to take down Omnigul in the Will of Crota strike.

With that done, upgrade your Eidolon Ally to full XP (those Motes of Light come in handy here) and return to Eris for the Essence of the Oversoul, the item you need to upgrade Eidolon Ally to Necrochasm.

Finally, these rare beast is yours – and RNGesus was only marginally involved. That’s as much as we can hope for from Destiny, isn’t it?

Here’s that info again, in bullet point form:

  • Farm high level strikes and story missions for Husk of the Pit drop
  • Fully upgrade Husk of the Pit by killing Thrall
  • Vistt the Speaker
  • Visit Eris
  • Cleanse Eidolon Ally:
    • Complete the first stage of Crota’s End
    • Kill Crota in Crota’s End
    • Kill Ominigul in The Will of Crota
  • Fully upgrade Eidolon Ally to final node
  • Visit Eris for Essence of the Oversoul
  • Use Essence of the Oversoul to upgrade final Eidolon Ally node

This Final Fantasy 15: Episode Prompto teaser features a cold and serious setting

28 Mar

The Gladiolus content just dropped today, and now here’s a teaser video for Episode Prompto, which is the next DLC on the release schedule for Final Fantasy 15.

As you can see in the video posted by RajmanGaming HD, it’s an extended look at a teaser for the Final Fantasy 15 DLC which was shown off during an Active Time Report from February.

Not much is known about Episode Prompto at present, but the scene in this teaser looks both cold and emotional. You know, because of all the snow, and the shooting.

Expect the DLC to arrive sometime in June followed by Episode Ignis along with the multiplayer expansion Comrades, neither of which have a release window.

Destiny 2 reveal trailer coming later this week on March 30 – here’s a teaser

28 Mar

As if the Destiny 2 hype wasn’t slowing building enough already, a fun little teaser video has been released by Bungie.

Bungie said to expect the reveal trailer to land this Thursday, March 30 at 10AM PT / 6PM BST.

Until then, watch the teaser. Cayde-6 (Nathan Fillion) should probably get out of Last City while he still can, we reckon.

With Destiny 2 said to arrive sometime in September, it’s only fitting more bite-sized morsels would be fed to the masses. It’s only five months away or so, after all. But a reveal trailer is really something.

The news follows a teaser image from Bungie which was announced in an official capacity earlier this week. The tease from Bungie followed platform leaks suggesting the MMO shooter would also arrive on PC, if German retailers are to be believed.

Rumors of a PC release aside, the latest leak corroborated those from last week, stating folks will be able to participate in a Destiny 2 beta as a pre-order bonus. Yesterday’s leak was for Xbox One, whereas the previous was for PS4.

It’s likely owners of Sony’s console will be handed early access to the beta before other platform owners get their chance.

Until Destiny 2 is completely revealed by Bungie and Activision, mark everything you see or hear as a rumor. For now, just enjoy Age of Triumph in Destiny 1.

It’s the last live update to the game, and will hopefully be a fitting tribute to everything your Guardian has accomplished.

Now that Destiny 2 has been announced this weekend’s PC build, pre-order bonus and Xbox One beta rumours are more interesting

28 Mar

Destiny 2 is all we care about today, apparently. What a shocking twist for VG247 dot com.

Many Destiny 2 rumours dropped this weekend, suspiciously close to Destiny 2’s official announcement, and Arekkz has rounded them all up.

First up, Italian website Lega Network posted a now-retracted article supposedly showing an image from an Italian Facebook page dedicated to Destiny 2. We don’t know if the Facebook page itself was official and posted early, or if i’s a fan page that got hold of something from a retail employee – or if perhaps the whole thing was complete bollocks from start to finish, so this one comes with a recommendation to add salt.

According to this source, pre-orders will net access to a Destiny 2 beta, and GameStop customers will also get a Cayde-6 action figure. Let’s hope that means the fan-favourite Hunter Vanguard will survive the destruction of the Last City in Destiny 2 – if any of this is legit.

Second, an image of a supposed Xbox One Destiny 2 poster did the rounds on social networks; here it is on Imgur, unfortunately without credit. It looks very much like the Destiny 2 posters that leaked last week, which of course may mean it’s a PhotoShop job or that both leaks are genuine. Similarly, the dodgy quality could be covering up a fake, or a result of a retail employee having to be very sneaky. Isn’t this fun? (Eurogamer‘s sources say the original poster leak was legit, if that helps you make up your mind.)

Anyway, according to this second, potentially also completely rubbish source, there will be a Destiny 2 beta for Xbox One players, too. We’d still expect to see PS4 players get early access like the first Destiny beta (Sony would have to woo Activision pretty hard to break up that little love-in) but with any luck, this one turns out to be true and the green team won’t miss out completely.

The third one comes from Sensnowy on Twitter; the German streamer was able to pre-order Destiny 2 on PC in a GameStop, and had the receipt to prove it. Of course, you could fake that, and it’s not like retailers don’t ever make mistakes (or just willingly offer pre-orders on speculative titles), but coming from a reasonably well-known name it’s pretty compelling and offers extra weight to the rumours Destiny 2 will come to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The receipt also suggests there’ll be a limited edition of Destiny 2, which is not at all surprising. Since we’ve seen Destiny console bundles in the past, you might look for a specially branded Destiny 2 PS4 Pro.

Finally, German retailer Instant Games is openly taking PC pre-orders, too, and again, while retailers often offer pre-orders on imaginary items, European retailers do have a tendency to just go ahead and reveal stuff American and UK chains stay tight-lipped about. (You can sometimes just wander into shops and buy games before release date, too; it’s very relaxing.) The description on the site mentions that details are unconfirmed, though, so we can probably write this one off.

None of any of this is super solid, but surely a full Destiny 2 reveal – complete with retailer pre-order push – is right around the corner. Destiny 2 is expected in September this year, after all.

Here’s what you missed in the Destiny 2 reveal – and yes, that single image has a lot to tell us

27 Mar

Destiny 2. The destruction of the Last City. The invasion of the Tower by the Cabal. Great big firey wings and a subclass that lets you hurl lightning spears. It’s all there, sort of.

Destiny 2 was officially “announced” earlier today. Of course we all knew a Destiny sequel was coming, but this is the first time Bungie or Activision have referred to the project with a title, and it suggests that the developer and publisher will soon begin actually talking about it.

Again, that’s not surprising, what with Destiny: Rise of Iron’s final event, Age of Triumph dropping this week, it will be very soon be time to look to the future. But just because this news is obvious doesn’t mean it’s not worth closer examination.

Arekkz has turned his eagle eye on the reveal and spotted something very interesting; the official Destiny 2 reveal art, showing the Traveller and what appears to be the Last City in flames, lines up with images seen last year in the portfolio of one of the concept artists who worked on The Taken King. They were written off as unused concepts, but also taken down suspiciously quickly.

The fire theme of those old images may well relate to the destruction of the Last City; there have been persistent rumours that Destiny 2 is throwing away the old setting to forge something entirely new. This scenario now looks even more likely, especially when you consider references in the Destiny Mega-bloks set suggesting the Cabal would assault the tower in Destiny 2.

So now you want to look back at that old concept art and wonder what it might tell us about Destiny 2. That’s a dangerous act of speculation as so much could have changed in the months since – but I’d like to think the rad-looking Guardian figures (we caught sight of a shield, a spear, a sword and some wings) represented new classes or subclasses. Exciting times!

There’s no official word yet but we’re expecting Destiny 2 in September 2017, possibly on PC as well as PS4 and Xbox One.

Bungie announces Destiny 2 with a new teaser image

27 Mar

It’s official. Destiny 2 is coming.

destiny_2

Hot on the heels of the leaked retail poster last week, Bungie has officially confirmed Destiny 2 with a simple tweet featuring key artwork from the game that matches up with the previous leak.

The image confirms the artwork from that leak and now makes one of gaming’s most obvious secrets properly official.

Just recently it was confirmed that Destiny characters wouldn’t carry over to the sequel, while some cryptic comments on an Activision Blizzard earnings call seemed to suggest that a PC release was likely for the sequel. It’s also worth noting the now-confirmed retail leak made mention of a PS4 beta for the game, too.

We’re now clearly not far from hearing more about all of this. It’s official – now we await more news. We’ll post it as it breaks, as always. All signs from previous leaks point to Destiny 2 being a 2017 game.

Halo World Championship getting flak for shoddy venue and poor turnout

27 Mar

This weekend’s Halo World Championship is front and centre for all the wrong reasons.

halowc-winner-module-ad3c91095f80459db36392a11edda595

In case you didn’t get the memo, the Halo World Championship took place over the weekend. You wouldn’t be the only one. Apparently a lot of people didn’t get it, because this is what it looked like:

The Championship’s winning team took home $1 million, but the prize pool clearly wasn’t enough of an incentive to draw a crowd.

Kotaku has collected a number of tweets about the event, including this one from Greenskull, who defended the event, saying that the other photos were of the overflow tent and were taken before or after matches.

I mean, they’re slightly better, but another user drew the comparison between the Call of Duty World Championship venue and crowd size, and Halo’s, and it all looks a bit on the depressing side.

It seems that the venue may have been a last minute fall-back after ESL Studios – who organised the event – couldn’t secure their first choice.

Regardless of the circumstances, the final show looked rather abysmal.

The winning team was OpTic Gaming, who only lost two games over the duration of the weekend, so congratulations to Bradley “Frosty” Bergstrom, Mathew “Royal 2” Fiorante, Paul “SnakeBite” Duarte, Tony “Lethul” Campbell Jr, and Chris “Royal 1” Fiorante.

PS4 trophy list pops up for Dark Souls developer’s PS2 classic Eternal Ring

27 Mar

FromSoftware’s PS2 title Eternal Ring might just be coming to PS4.

Eternal Ring was a PS2 launch title from FromSoftware, and in case you were too young to remember that, or weren’t even alive back then, you can check out some gameplay in John GodGames’ video above.

Now that we’re all feeling suitably glum about the inexorable onslaught of Time against the flowers of our youth, we can cheer up at the thought of some quality nostalgia, as an Eternal Ring PS4 trophy list has popped up on Exophase suggesting that we’ll see the game appear on PS4 sometime soon.

Eternal Ring released a year before the final game in FromSoftware’s Kings Field series, which was a precursor to Demon Souls and Dark Souls.

The story follows a magician named Cain sent by his king to poke around on the Island of No Return.

According to the game’s PlayStation page, Cain “attempts to be the first person to return from the island alive,” which makes you wonder how the king knew anything was amiss to begin with, but regardless, legends speak of the land being inhabited by weird monsters and dragons, as well as a ton of magical items.

Including rings.

Did you play Eternal Ring the first time around? Are you looking forward to seeing it on PS4? Chime in below.

We got a sneak peek at the first 15 minutes of the DLC, which will take around 2 to 3 hours to complete, and over the weekend a new trailer dropped for the DLC and the March update.

The patch notes aren’t up on the main website yet, but according to the PS4 notes, here’s what the update has brought with it:

Episode Gladiolus drops tomorrow, March 28. The update is live now.

StarCraft Remastered plays exactly the same as the original, but at a resolution that won’t make your eyes bleed

27 Mar

StarCraft, now in shiny HD to match your rose-tinted memories.

starcraft_original_cover

StarCraft Remastered has been announced after months of speculation and years of noisy fan demand.

Due sometime in the second quarter, StarCraft Remastered includes the Brood War expansion and boasts updated visuals on units, buildings, and environments, as well as better audio and broader resolution support to suit modern screens. Blizzard boasts that the new HD version of StarCraft allows you to rapidly zoom in and out between a view of the entire battlefield and “the veins on a mutalisk’s wings”.

Speaking to Team Liquid, Blizzard said it had two goals with the new visuals: to maintain the distinctive unit silhouettes and animations, so old school players won’t have trouble recognising what’s going on, and to fill int the detail only hinted at by the limited pixel count of the original sprites.

You can compare the old and new graphics – in motion! – with a slider viewer on the StarCraft Remastered site.

Apart from the visual upgrade, there are a few other changes. New comic book style briefings link the missions, and all dialogue has been re-recorded, but Blizzard says it’s the same StarCraft story, just with a “fresh coat of paint”.

But that’s pretty much it; Blizzard’s clearly trying to avoid affecting gameplay. StarCraft Remastered uses the same engine as the original, everything’s still 2D, and the screen ratio is the same as it was as of Brood Wars. No changes have been made to balance, controls or features – at all.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide – Divine Beast Vah Ruta Dungeon

24 Mar

Into the belly of the water-spouting beast.

the_legend_of_zelda_breath_of_the_wild_switch (1)

If you want even more Breath of the Wild help, we have a full guide hub with plenty of other detailed pages.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Walkthrough – Main Quest: Divine Beast Vah Ruta Dungeon

After that cool little set-piece where you worked with Sidon to get aboard Vah Ruta, you find yourself on your own abroad divine beast Vah Ruta – and it’s massive.

In another Zelda game this would’ve been called a Dungeon or a Temple, and though this is around as close as you get to those ideas in Breath of the Wild it’s still very different.

Let me explain the basics: once you enter Divine Beast Vah Ruta properly, your first immediate goal will be to get yourself a map. You won’t be able to properly progress until you do. Once you’ve grabbed a map, your goal is then much simpler and more open than typical Zelda dungeons – you then need to activate 5 different terminals scattered around Vah Ruta with your Sheikah Slate. Getting to these terminals or making them accessible is, of course, going to require some puzzle solving.

As well as being able to move objects around and interact with parts of the dungeon with your items and rune powers you have one other crucial ability – the ability to move the body parts of each giant beast. For Divine Beast Vah Ruta, it’s the trunk, which constantly spouts water… and you can use that water to help yourself out. Consider this the water dungeon or temple, if you will.

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Getting a map

Here we are. The belly of the beast. Literally. Head into the first room after the disembodied voice of the Zora’s champion is done talking. There’s a weakened guardian here, so pick it off – it’s weakened, thankfully.

A Terminal can be found in a side room down a ramp. Just want to point out: there’s a terminal in here but it’s useless to you until you activate several sub-terminals.

Back up in the main room, first focus on the water in the middle of the room and the door that was pointed out to you as the dungeon began. Use Cryonis on the water underneath the door to raise the door, then go inside and download the map to Divine Beast Vah Ruta. Handy! This map not only gives you information on where you are, but lets you move Vah Ruta’s trunk.

zelda_botw_guide_ruta-t1

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Terminal 1

Back in the main entrance room look in the water either side of the map room door with your Magnesis Rune equipped. There’s a metal chest here you can drag above water and open for some loot.

In this same room, look for the cogs in a corner. Use your Magnesis Rune to turn these cogs clockwise in order to raise a platform that holds the first of Vah Ruta’s terminal points that you can use your Sheikah Slate on.

Raise the terminal and then use it – this is your first terminal, done! This shouldn’t be so hard, right? Right?

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Terminal 2

Head upstairs and up the ramp via the side door. Upstairs there’s a big water wheel and a guardian. Kill that guy, then survey this large central room of Vah Ruta.

There are two enormous water wheels in here – a smaller one that’s turning and a larger one that’s stationary.

You should be able to see your second terminal right in front of you – it’s actually inside the smaller cog. The problem: the cog’s base is flooded with water, and it’s constantly moving.

Thankfully we have a power that can handle that. All you need to do is wait for it to be in the bottom of the cog and then use Cryonis on where the water is coming from to freeze it solid. The water level in that part of Vah Ruta drops and the wheel stops turning, freeing up the terminal for use – it powers on automatically.

Take the opportunity to use the terminal when the terminal is available.

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Terminal 3

Ignore the second larger cog/wheel for now and simply head on over to the other side of the room and up the stairs to the next floor of Vah Ruta. When you see the Ganon corruption there’s a portal thing that spits our endless enemies – look above this for the eyeball to shoot that’ll get rid of the corruption and the spawner with it.

Carry on upstairs until you reach a locked gate on the water wheel at a standstill.

Now use your map screen to adjust the position of divine beast Vah Ruta’s trunk, which is constantly spitting water. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Make water pour into the room so that the wheel turns so the orange ball falls into the blue slot. This opens the door, but now the door is out of reach.
  • Freeze the ball into the slot with stasis, then quickly direct the trunk so that the door is turned back to face you before Stasis expires.
  • With the door facing you and open, run in and activate that terminal, your third.
  • Once this is done there are three optional chests to grab. The first is gained by climbing onto the larger water wheel’s fins as it turns. Get to the apex, then look out towards the smaller wheel. There’s a chest on a ledge – paraglide out there.
  • The second chest is on one of the outer fins of the water wheel, so simply wait for the right bit of rotation and hop on.
  • The third spoke of the large water wheel has a chest trapped between two stone blocks. The key here is to use rotation of the wheel your advantage, freezing the top block with stasis for long enough while the ‘chest sandwich’ is parted so that you can run up and open the chest.

Once you’re done, ride the water wheel all the way up to the top and face the opposite direction of the previously mentioned chest – towards Vah Ruta’s trunk. Hop and glide to this new platform, kill the guardian, and press the switch on the left to create a shortcut waterfall that you can swim up with the Zora armor.

zelda_botw_guide_ruta-t4

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Terminal 4

Now you’re up where the switch is and where you just killed a guardian, go on through the only passageway here – this leads outside, to divine beast Vah Ruta’s trunk.

If you lower Vah Ruta’s trunk all the way via your map screen you’ll be able to get out to its end. Here you can shoot an eye to remove Ganon’s corruption and open a chest, but then you should raise the trunk again and try to stay on the end as long as possible. When you get enough height, jump and glide so you’re on top of Divine Beast Vah Ruta’s body.

There’s a hole atop Vah Ruta; drop down it and again find one of the corruption eyes to shoot on the ceiling. This frees up a mechanism. Grab this mechanism with your Magnesis rune and turn it clockwise to open a hole in the ceiling.

If your survey the room you’ll now notice that divine beast Vah Ruta’s lovely new sunroof has opened directly above a terminal surrounded by fire. Huh. You get the idea, I’m sure: once the hole is open, preposition the trunk so that it comes through the new hole and douses the flames.

Head on down to the newly extinguished area and use the terminal. This is your fourth terminal.

Turn back towards the cog room and drop down a level to find a chest on your way back down.

Inside Divine Beast Vah Ruta: Terminal 5 (Final)

For the final terminal, head back to the area where you can walk onto the trunk. Now, I’m not even sure if this is the intended way (it sure felt like a bit of a bodge), but here’s how I did this:

  • Bring the trunk all the way up into the position where water is pouring into Ruta.
  • Stand ready at the doorway out onto the trunk.
  • Make the trunk descend, then jump and paraglide towards the end of the trunk. You want to land on the part water is coming from.
  • Now make the trunk curl all the way back up again, being careful to remain on the right side of the trunk in order to not fall and to access the terminal once it’s the right way up – the fifth terminal is on a side of Vah Ruta’s trunk only exposed when it’s fully raised.

With this done, all that remains is to return to the main room and to head into the main control room – the very first terminal we pointed out that was useless before. Prepare yourself, then activate that terminal.

zelda_botw_guide_ruta-extra

Boss: Waterblight Ganon

This boss is a big old beast made of Ganon’s corruption and floats around the arena attacking. It has both ranged attacks and some nasty up-close and personal stuff with its enormous sword, but the fact that it’s waterblight is a good clue.

This boss has two phases. In the first phase I found it easiest to get in close and fight; like with the Lynel earlier on in the Zora quest line a priority should be to equip a weapon that lets you have a shield (so not a trident or greatsword if you can help it) and then get in close.

Attack like the blazes and raise your shield any time he begins to look remotely threatening. Be sure to eat to power yourself up in terms of attack and defence. If he goes down, switch to a two-handed weapon briefly and go to town with heavy attacks.

For phase 2 Waterblight Ganon raises four pillars in the water. This is a bit of a pain as it impedes your ability to move around him. Usually he’ll occupy one pillar and he’ll occupy another.

If you didn’t struggle too much on the boarding Vah Ruta mini-boss you now have a use for those other shock arrows – these wreck havoc on this water-based creature, so now you’re separated by water, blast him from afar. Aim for the eye.

If he gets downed by the arrows, run, jump and swim (don’t forget, the Zora armor helps you to move more quickly) to him and once again let rip with a heavier weapon.

The fight will soon be over, and you’re treated to some cutscenes, learn some solemn story information, and are then deposited back into the open world… which is now significantly less rainy.

You’ll also get a skill in for the bargain – this skill, Mipha’s Grace, will revive you once when you run out of hearts. Once used it’ll take some time – half an hour or so – to recharge, but it can be a lifesaver.

Street Fighter 5 free to play next week on Steam, CFN being overhauled

24 Mar

Changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, and Capcom is giving everyone a chance to give them a go next week.

street fighter 5 Kolin

Capcom has announced that some big changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, particularly to the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN).

The publisher said it’s been working hard to address connectivity issues players have been running into since launch, and has now completely rebuilt the CFN for a better online experience.

In order to test it out, Capcom is making Street Fighter 5 free to play on Steam from March 28 to April 3. The beta client will be separate from the main game, and will only include access to the game’s online modes.

Existing players’ CFN username and other stats will carry over to the beta, whereas new players will get to create CFN logins. All of the game’s fighters will be unlocked, including post-launch characters. Anything earned during the beta, as well as stats recorded, will be wiped after April 3.

This build will also come with the season 2 balance adjustments, which is good news for competitive players. Capcom detailed a list of improvements players should see with the new CFN, check out the full thing at the link.

The beta kicks off, only on Steam, at 1pm PT, 4pm ET, 8pm GMT on Tuesday, March 28. It wraps up at 12pm PT, 3pm ET, 7pm GMT on Monday, April 3.

Overwatch update 2.08 brings back Capture the Flag, out now on PS4 and Xbox One

24 Mar

One more Overwatch update before the weekend.

overwatch_year_of_the_rooster (23)

Blizzard has released a new Overwatch patch on PS4 and Xbox One. This is a small patch, meant as a follow up to update 1.9, the big one released earlier this week.

The new update, version 2.08, readjusts Orisa by slowing down her movement speed when firing, and brings back Capture the Flag mode. See the full patch notes below:

General

  • [PS4] Capture the Flag maps and mode have been reactivated

Bug fixes

  • PS4/XB1] Fixed a bug that prevented background music from playing
  • [PS4/XB1] Fixed a bug that prevented the Damage Amplified value from being displayed correctly
  • [PS4/XB1] Orisa’s movement now slows slightly while firing in midair

Here’s what Blizzard had to say about the Orisa change: “Much like D.Va’s Fusion Cannons, Orisa’s Fusion Driver is intended to slow her movement while she is firing. However, unlike D.Va, there was an issue that prevented this slow from working while firing from the air.”

There is no similar update on PC since some of what it brings is already available there.

Destiny: Xur location and inventory for March 24, 25

24 Mar

Come see if Xur’s inventory is worth getting excited about this week.

xur

Xur: Agent of the Nine, the Exotics vendor in Destiny, has returned to hopefully tempt you with a new batch of gear and weapons. Xur takes Strange Coins, so make sure you’re loaded up on those before checking out his stack.

Xur has been spotted by the large door near the Speaker. You have until 9am GMT on Sunday, March 26 to grab what you want.

Take a look at what he’s got this weekend below:

If you’re considering Thunderlord, you should definitely get it. It’s not unmatched, but it remains a pretty good choice.

Next week with the release of the Age of Triumph update, Xur’s inventory could look different. For now, the usual four items take the spot.

Destiny: Age of Triumph – Adept Weapons are shown off in these new screenshots

23 Mar

Hopefully, we got all of the weapons names right in these Destiny: Age of Triumph screenshots.

destiny_age_of_triumph (9)

The images you see below are the Adept versions of the weapons which will drop in Destiny when Age of Triumph goes live.

All raid weapons return, but Primaries have changed. If one of these Legendary weapons drop while participating in a raid, it will no longer have an Elemental Primary; however, there will be an Adept version of the Primary.

Fatebringer, which we used as an example before, will drop in either Legendary form or as the new exotic form with elemental damage when the raid being participate in is part of the weekly playlist.

Basically, the Adept version of Legendary weapons will drop during the Weekly Playlist, but the usual form will drop in the raid if is not part of the playlist that week.

Leaked Destiny 2 poster reveals September release date, pre-launch beta

23 Mar

We may have our first look at promo art for Destiny 2.

destiny_2_poster_leak_italian_crop_1

Leaked Destiny 2 posters and artwork have popped up online, revealing a September 8 release date. The poster, likely originating from an Italian Retailer, was posted on NeoGAF.

It mentions the release date at the top, as well as confirm that a beta will take place. The full sentence is cut off, but it probably refers to the beta as a pre-order bonus. Either that or pre-ordering gets you early access to the beta.

Here it is:

destiny_2_poster_leak_italian_1

Since then, Italian website League Network posted two other posters, sporting the same artwork. They’re watermarked, so we won’t include them here, but you can hit the link to see them.

Sadly, other than offer a different angle, they don’t reveal much else. That said, it’s worth pointing out that the poster header carries the same PlayStation blue accent seen around game covers whose publisher has a marketing deal with Sony. This was the case for the original Destiny and its expansions, and looks like it will continue with the sequel.

Bungie recently said that the next game will be such a big leap forward most of what you gathered in the three years of Destiny will not carry forward.

Destiny 2 has long be rumoured to be built on a new engine, with a PC version reportedly also in the works. At the time, some reports predicted the game would miss its usual September slot. At least for the time being, this appears to not be true.
