You can read the rest of the TWID on bungie.netDestiny 2 will finally let you change your character's appearance, with one big limitationJan 19, 2024 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunIf you want to change your Destiny 2 wizard's appearance, the only current method is to stash your wizard's gear in your vault, create a whole new wizard with a new look (after deleting the old to free a character slot, if needed), grab your old wizard's gear, then optionally replay any story bits to catch up. The MMOFPS has no barber, no surgeon, it's new character or nothing. After six years (longer, if you count the first game), Bungie are finally planning to change this. An upcoming update will introduce the ability to change your character's look—within limits. For drastic changes, you would still need a new wizard. Read more After almost a decade, Bungie is letting Destiny 2 players fix their fugly guardians (and it won't cost anything)Jan 18, 2024 - PC GamerI've had an article in my drafts titled 'All MMOs need a barber shop' for several years now. The likelihood of that piece ever getting finished inched further away this afternoon, with Bungie announcing that—after almost a decade, and countless complaints—it's adding a system to enable players to edit the appearance of their guardians. Here's what the developer had to say in the latest This Week in Destiny blog post:.. Read more.This Week in Destiny - 1/18/2024Jan 18, 2024 - Community AnnouncementsThis week in Destiny, we are back!

Glimmer capacity increase. Character customization, too! Vote for the next Festival of the Lost sets. Did you play the newest Exotic mission yet? We made Riven into a plushie. Game2Give turns 5! New Prime Gaming drop. The weekly Player Support Report. And the Art of the Week and Movie of the Week winners. You can read the rest of the TWID on bungie.netExplore Starfield as your Exo Destiny 2 Guardian thanks to this new modJan 5, 2024 - VG247If you think the one big thing missing from Starfield is a touch of Bungie shooter magic (ok, you probably don’t, but bear with me), a new mod that adds Destiny 2’s Exos to it as a playable race is definitely worth checking out. Yes, that’s right, someone’s decided to give you the means to have a pop at re-creating your Guardian in a fresh universe and taking them on a new adventure that’s a bit less likely to end with you cursing the fact you can’t shoot quite as accurately as your mates. If nothing else, your unquenchable thirst for loot will definitely come in handy in the Settled Systems. The mod in question is the fittingly-named ExoWarlock313’s ‘Exo Playable Race’, which, as you might have gleaned from the name, adds Exos to the game as a new default character race, with help from Expired6978’s ‘CharGenMenu’. You won’t just be stuck with a generic semi-humanoid robot bloke either, with the modder having striven to offer you a number of ways to customise your Exo that you might find in Destiny 2’s own character creator.

Now free-to-play on Steam with a brand new $34.99 "Shadowkeep" expansion, Destiny 2 peaked with 219k concurrent players on Tuesday. That number might have been even higher if not for technical issues that prevented many users from logging in and Bungie taking the game down for “emergency maintenance. However, with Mostly Positive reviews right now on Steam, it doesn't seem like said issues being fixed tomorrow will have a drastic impact on the player counts. Destiny 2's player count hitting 200k was enough to help the game rank in as the #3 most played game on Steam for a couple hours yesterday. But D2's numbers were far behind yesterday's peaks for Steam's top 3 games: Dota 2 (606k players), CS:GO (605k players), and PUBG (566k players). Destiny's biggest competition over the years has been the growing popularity of Warframe -- a similar free-to-play loot shooter -- which is still in Steam's top 10 averaging around 50k concurrent players and peaking at 132k players back in November 2018. Yesterday also marked the first time we've ever been able to see Destiny's actual player counts. So, it'll be interesting to see if Destiny 2 is able to grow any more to compete with PUBG or if its player base will decline closer to Warframe's numbers.
