Destiny 2: Tour of the New Social Space “The Farm”

Bungie’s Ryan Ebenger takes IGN on a tour of the new social space in Destiny 2 called The Farm. In this video we get a cool spoiler free walk through of some of the areas we’ll find in the new Destiny social space. Some of our good old merchants will be returning from Destiny 1 as well as some new features. Most important is the new soccer field with goals and score keeping, totally unnecessary but amazing none the less.

Don’t forget that the Beta begins on 07/18/17 on PS4 and 7/19/17 on Xbox One for pre-ordering players. Non-pre-ordering console players will have access to the Destiny 2 Beta beginning 7/21/17. The Destiny 2 Beta for PC begins in late August.

10 Minutes of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gameplay – #E32017

Check out 10 minutes from Koji Igarashi’s CastleVania inspired game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I didn’t have a chance to play Bloodstained at E3 but I’m super excited as I’m a huge CastleVania fan. Its been too long since a good side scrolling CastleVania has been released. The only bad news is that this game is still a long ways out and isn’t expected to be released until some time in 2018.
