Bungie’s weekly Destiny livestreams begin next week; spring update details soon to come
I was hoping that my last article pointing out how slow the Destiny news train has gotten would have encouraged the news folk at Bungie to step up their game from that point on. Alas, instead things have gotten so slow that even Bungie had to admit this week’s weekly update was “light on news.”
But the lingering radio silence shouldn’t last for too much longer, as the update revealed that starting this Wednesday, March 2, the weekly livestreaming business the studio announced last week will begin, offering Twitch-goers a chance to get to know more about the people who make Destiny on a regular basis, as well as learn more about Destiny’s past, present and future.
Starting things off will be the return of Bungie’s “Ride Along” streams on Wednesday, which will feature senior artist Andrew Hopps and senior designer Brian Frank as they take viewers on a tour of The Taken King’s Dreadnaught and go into detail on the design process for Destiny’s locales, “like a creative post-mortem in a combat zone.”
Then, in “the weeks that follow”, Bungie will continue with highlighting the people behind the game, beginning with the Audio Team, while also reviving the "Bungie Bounty" community events. Most intriguingly, the schedule will also boast “updates to the content roadmap” that currently includes not only a new expansion and a full-on Destiny sequel, but a new update “slated for Spring.”
“Designers will be front and center to unveil new details about a content release that will feature ‘a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability,’” according to community manager David “DeeJ” Dague in regards to the update.
The times and dates for the weekly livestreams will be revealed in full blog posts detailing the when and what for each event. And for those of you who don’t have time to watch an entire livestream and would rather read the news, rest assured. GameDynamo, as always, will keep you covered. But that is talk for next week.
For now, I go. The Gamersphere calls to me, and I have much to think about, things to do, etc. Have some Guardians dancing while I’m away, just because.
