Developer Bungie Publisher Activision Format PC, PS4, Xbox One Release September 6
This was a quiet show for Bungie – in fairness it had already had its E3, at Destiny 2’ s lavish unveiling in Los Angeles in May. The opening campaign mission we played for our story in E308 was on the show floor, but most of the real action was behind closed doors, with a few new bits of info dribbling out from interviews. Some of it was well-received – confirmation that the Titan’s defensive Ward Of Dawn super will return, for instance – while much of it wasn’t, with confirmation that elements such as Ranked PVP and private matches won’t be ready for launch putting certain corners of the Destiny community on edge. That, sadly, is what happens when you don’t have a fresh batch of gameplay footage to show. This was an oddly muted showing for one of our most anticipated games of the year, but relax: we’ll have much more to tell you next month.
