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

For Honor’s Peacekeeper gets a temp ban in MLG online tournaments due to being overpowered

28 Mar

The For Honor tournament community is tired of the Peacekeeper being overpowered, and Major League Gaming has heard the complaints loud and clear.

According to many who play the game, the Peacekeeper’s light attack in For Honor is being spammed by players, making it a tough character to beat – if not impossible sometimes.

All you have to do is look through For Honor subreddit and you will find many a post dedicated to the class. You can also look at the video above from YourFriendlyKebab, which was posted on the MLG forums.

One MLG forum user, Clint44mag, started a thread a few days ago stating the Peacekeeper should be “banned until a re-balancing patch comes out,” for a variety of reasons.

“The Peacekeeper causes a lack of diversity, is abnormally strong compared to the other characters, and reduces the competitive spirit of For Honor,” wrote Clint44mag.

You can read his entire post through here.

In response, an MLG Online supervisor has decided for online tournaments, the firm will “try running a tournament with Peacekeeper banned,” and send a poll out for feedback. If the community is “largely in favor of banning the hero,” it will do so.

Hopefully, Ubisoft is paying attention, and the Peacekeeper will finally get some much needed balancing.

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.

A Mafia 3 demo is now available on all platforms alongside the Faster, Baby! DLC

28 Mar

If you have yet to play Mafia 3, you can now try the game’s opening act on all available platforms. The game is also on sale, too.

The demo for Mafia 3 allows you to play the bank heist sequence which sets the stage for the rest of the story.

It gives players a background into Lincoln’s history with the mafia and the events leading up to his desire for revenge.

PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users can now download the Mafia 3 demo and all progress will carry over into the full game upon purchase. The game is also on sale both digitally and through retail for 50% off now through April 17.

The demo is 24GB through Steam for PC, 27GB on PS4 and 25GB on Xbox One.

Along with news of the demo, the Faster, Baby! DLC is also available, starting today. If you own the Deluxe version of Mafia 3, which comes with the Season Pass, you can download it right away. If you don’t own the Season Pass ($29.99) it will run you $14.99.

Two more DLC releases, Stones Unturned and Sign of the Times, will be released later.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild making of video series gets a bonus episode

28 Mar

If you’re wondering what the Breath of the Wild creators favourite in-game food is, or how the pixelated dubious food came about, your questions have been answered.

The three-part video series from Nintendo on the making of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is something you should carve out some time for if you’re playing the game, or are a fan of the series in general.

And if you’ve already watched it, you’ll be pleased to know that Nintendo has released a bonus session, that you can watch above.

The creators pic their favorite characters, shrines, food, and locations in-game before each delivering a message to the viewers.

There’s some interesting tidbits in there about how Revali’s theme music was changed after it made him come across as “too umpleasant”, and the evolution of the cooking system.

It’s only seven minutes, so brew a cuppa and give it a watch.

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.

New Minecraft mini game lets you soar through the skies in tomorrow’s update

27 Mar

Minecraft’s new Glide mini game takes inspiration from Pilotwings.

At the end of last year, the Minecraft Christmas update for consoles introduced the Elytra glider and if you’ve been having a blast flying about with it, the next update is going to be right up your street.

A new mini game called Glide is being introduced tomorrow and it looks like all sorts of fun. There’s just the one map at launch that you can tackle in Time Attack or Score Attack modes. If you’d prefer to dabble in the multiplayer, you can challenge other players online.

For those of you on PS4 and Xbox One, Glide and Battle can now accommodate up to 16 players in a new lobby, and you can take a crack at making it onto the Glide leaderboards.

There’s a livestream of the mini game going on now that you can watch on Twitch to get an idea of what’s in store.

The update tomorrow will be free, with more maps – both paid and free – coming at a later date.

Final Fantasy 15 update is live for Chapter 13 along with new trailer for Episode Gladiolus

27 Mar

Bug fixes, spell tweaks, and more incoming in Final Fantasy 15 patch.

Final Fantasy 15 DLC Episode Gladiolus was teased last month and it was revealed that side character Cor Leonis would be joining him.

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:

Update 1.07

  • Various bug fixes

Version 1.06

  • Addition of Chapter 13, Verse 2 (alternate route featuring Gladiolus)
  • Enhancement of Arcana spells (Alterna, Holy, Death)
  • Announcement of winning snapshots from first photo contest (viewable at Takka’s Pit Stop in Hammerhead)
  • Temporary conclusion of Timed Quests (will resume at a later date)
  • Addition of two pieces from Episode Gladiolus to music player tracklist
  • Addition of compatibility with Episode Gladiolus
  • Various gameplay enhancements
  • Various bug fixes
  • Updates save will not work on former versions of the game

It looks like character stats and gear won’t carry over from the main game to Chapter 13, Verse 2: For King and Comrade.

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

Watch Rain World’s opening cinematic now so you can get in on the ground with this week’s indie darling

27 Mar

Rain World is probably going to be the pretty indie everyone swoons over this week. Get on board now or you’ll be left climbing onto the bandwagon mid-parade.

Rain World releases this week for PC and PS4 after several years of anticipation, and it looks very special indeed.

The opening cinematic above does a good job of communicating a lovely melancholic aesthetic and introducing the Slugcat protagonist, but what makes this gorgeous platformer so intriguing to me is that Rain World boasts an ecosystem in which creatures lead an existence semi-independent of the player’s actions.

The video doesn’t show that, or any gameplay, so I really recommend checking out the previous Rain World trailer to see it in action and get a feel for how it plays. We’ve got some other gameplay trailers under the Rain World tag if you fancy it, but most of them are pretty old; we’ve been waiting on this one for four years now.

Rain World is just one of a number of indies produced in partnership with Adult Swim Games, which is doing some really interesting things at the moment.

Coincidentally, as I wrote this article it began to rain, and my cat flopped down on the desk in an extremely slug-like fashion. Let’s hope this is a positive omen.

The Elgato Stream Deck looks like a cool, handy tool for streamers

25 Mar

If you like to stream on Twitch or YouTube, you may want to have a look at the Elgato Stream Deck.

The Elgato Stream Deck has 15 LCD keys which streamers can use to switch scenes, launch media, adjust audio or customize to their liking.

They can personalize keys with custom icons, Twitter, OBS, TipeeeStream, Twitch or other tool integrations, control Game Capture, and more. To do this, all they need to do is just drag and drop actions onto keys using the peripheral’s app.

Users can set the the 15 keys to control 210 actions which is 15 less keyboard shortcuts to memorize.

GIFs, images, videos, graphics and audio clips can also be set.

It looks rather cool actually. You can find out more on the Elgato Stream Deck, which ships in May, through the official website.

It is available for pre-order now through Amazon and GAME, and will run you $149.95/£139.95.

Leaked Call of Duty: World War 2 promotional images show a franchise “going back to its roots” – rumor

25 Mar

Looks like the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise will indeed take the series “back to its roots” if these leaked promotional materials for Call of Duty: World War 2 are legitimate. Best file this as a rumor for now, though.

The leaked images were sent over to TheFamilyVideoGamers earlier this week.

Again, information provided to the outlet should be taken as rumor for now, but we must point out TheFamilyVideoGamers is a respected outlet and not one to a post a rumor as large as this without warrant, as they told us earlier this week.

This is one reason they sat on this information for almost an entire week before going live with it.

For one, Call of Duty isn’t a franchise TheFamilyVideoGamers would normally cover. The second reason they didn’t go live with it from the onset, was the person who sent the information was anonymous.

This isn’t uncommon, because no one wants to lose their job over sending a leak to an outlet. The person who sent the email over said the images came from someone close to the project at Sledgehammer – which is working on the next Call of Duty game.

Whether the person who sent the tip works for the developer themselves, or it was indeed sent to the source by a Sledgehammer employee cannot be verified.

Now that’s we’ve provided you some background on this rumor, let’s take a look at what appears to be early promotional materials.

Posters and steel cases of the Normandy landing

The posters and steel cases you see in the video from TheFamilyVideoGamers were likely shown during a marketing meeting with retailers.

It’s also possible the images came from focus group testing, where selected individuals of the public are asked for their opinion on consumer products. As someone who has participated in focus group testing in the past for products before they came to market (Tide To Go, Fazoli’s, space-age maxi pads, smelly dish soap), it’s not uncommon for companies to ask for a consumer’s opinion on logos, branding, artwork, or general interest.

If you look at the fonts on the five cases and poster, it’s the same font used on Call of Duty packaging such as Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Activision is also known for producing cases which feature artwork for special editions.

The first case shows aerial view of what is obviously Omaha Beach, while the second features a closeup of a solider with others in the background storming the beaches on D-Day.

Then, there’s another image of a third steelcase featuring the backs of soldiers heading towards the beach. The fourth case shows a soldier holding either a BAR or Thompson, it’s a bit hard to tell. Finally, the last case has sepia coloring with a close-up of a solider on the back, and a crop of the poster image on the front.

That’s a quite a large offering of game cases, which means either numerous editions are coming to market, some are retailer specific cases, or again, some are just early prototypes.

Taking the franchise “back to its roots”

In Activision’s last financial report, COO Thomas Tippl said Sledgehammer’s title would feature “traditional combat” as the studio is taking 2017’s Call of Duty “back to its roots,” as the space setting for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare “just didn’t resonate.”

A World War 2 offering does make sense, if the franchise is indeed going back to its roots. The first three Call of Duty titles were set during World War 2, plus, Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey previously expressed interest in developing a CoD game with this setting as far back as 2014.

In November of that year, Condrey told Metro UK a “next generation game with the latest production values and robustness” in a World War 2 setting “would be amazing.”

“Some of my favorite pieces of entertainment are set in World War 2. Band of Brothers, I’m a massive fan of Band of Brothers,” he said. “And [World War 2] is a great hero’s war, kind of the last that was recognized as a noble cause in a war.

“So yeah, I think a next generation game with the latest production values and robustness in a World War 2 setting like Band of Brothers would be amazing. Now, how would it play and how would the multiplayer work after the new movement set in Advanced Warfare? That’s a tougher question than I’ve had to tackle yet.”

PCgamesN also spoke with an inside source “ahead of the leak of this promotional art,” which corroborated the title of the next Call of Duty game, so that’s also something to consider.

Between comments made by both Activision and Sledgehammer along with the leaked promotional materials – again, if legitimate – it’s looking more and more likely this year’s Call of Duty will indeed be set during World War 2.

E3 2017 is only a couple of months away, so expect an announcement for the November title at that time – if not before.
