New Crucible Gameplay, Hotfix, Raid Talk!

Datto, MoreConsole, and My name is Byf were able to play the new Crucible maps coming to The Dark Below at PSX, which are listed further below in this article.

There’s also a hot fix ready to go for The Dark Below, and finally TTL talked with DeeJ and Luke Smith about Crota’s End and more!

Vault of Glass 31

First of all, wanted to update you all on the speculation about the Vault of Glass ‘harder’ mode – at level 31.

It looks like this is actually not coming in TDB:

So it’s not getting an added difficulty level in TDB, though it’s still possible for the future, as I’m sure they’re going to continue updating VoG a bit (the podcast below hints at it).


The Cauldron

Hot Fix

Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will become available for download by players on December 9th at 1AM Pacific time. Before it arrives, this update will support the delivery of new content.

The Dark Below

  • General bug fixes to content features in The Dark Below


Increased challenge levels for the following:

  • Daily Heroic Story
  • Weekly Heroic Strike
  • Weekly Nightfall Strike

Players who need to level up to successfully complete featured missions at new difficulty levels will find what they need to upgrade their characters in the Tower.

As part of Expansion I, vendors will be equipped with more powerful weapons and gear. These items will be available for acquisition by all players.

TTL Party Chat Episode 8

crota end raid dark below destiny

The guys over at TTL talked to DeeJ and Luke Smith about the Crota’s End raid and Destiny’s evolution!

Listen to it here.

Bungie user research reached out to DeeJ asking him if he knew of a group who as he recalled on the podcast “understand social gaming, have pre-existing friendships, and value teamwork, problem solving and coordination as a group.”

DeeJ knew of such a group, and began coordinating what was referred to internally as “Bring your clan to work day”.

Hope For The Future

Finally in this news roundup, Paul McCartney has officially released his new single!

You can download this song here (save link as).

      Dude, if you don’t like the game then don’t waste your time trying to ruin it for anyone else. We get it, you don’t like it. Thousands of people still do though, so go play call of duty or something and save everyone including yourself some time

      • NLK3

        Actually, the issue is that he’s on a Destiny only website and dissing the game. Just let him have his moment, since doing something like this in real life when related to other things could get him killed.

  • BOoya956

    Boring! No one has even check on crucible topic. Point proven!

  • BOoya956

    Still no one check on PVP info because its lame.

    • Talentino Max

      It’s the most played console game… lol, get lost troll.

    • Christian

      No, of course not. Definitely not the twenty thousand people that viewed the video, no, no, that’s “No one”. Lol.

  • TassadarCRG

    I check pvp info because its great

  • BOoya956

    Ha! Just one person responded! Still lame!

    • Micah Yang

      You’re so stupid O.o

      • Christian

        Lol. Told.

  • Micah Yang

    Playing the slots looks more fun than trying to use no lands beyond in pvp :/

    • NLK3

      If not for the huge iron sights and slow bold action, it would seem funner. I need a close range sniper.

  • NLK3

    If they add a level 32 version, they should let the 30 hard mode have the same rewards, plus level 32 gear that you get from doing the 26, but make the 32 hard mode give level 32 hard mode gear and radiant material with an increased chance for 30 or 26 gear (it was harder, after all; why torture gamers with randomized drops for doing something challenging they may not be able to do again soon, let alone for a week?)
