Our goal for DestinyNews.net was to provide you all with the latest news and information about Destiny. That will still remain one of our top priorities as we move on to bigger and greater things under the new brand PlanetDestiny.com
To celebrate this milestone, we’re giving away 7 DLC expansion passes!
What you can expect
As you probably have noticed, there’s been a few design improvements to the site recently, and that’s just the beginning. A complete redesign is currently underway, and it’ll allow us to emphasize the content we think you’ll like in a better way on our homepage. A big restructuring and organization of our content is taking place as well, making it easier to quickly find the information you’re looking for. We will divide the site into a number of main sections such as guides, analysis, exotics, database etc.
One of our major new features currently in final stages is a well designed, structured and user-friendly database for items, vendors, events etc. If you are tired of having to jump back and forth between the current databases and wikis to find all information in one place, we’re sure you will appreciate our vision for how a proper database should look and work.
As you may have noticed already we’ve also developed our own tooltips to allow for more then just a description of the item you’re hovering. If you hover a weapon or armor here at PlanetDestiny you will get the relevant information we believe you actually want to see, making them far more useful. For example, we recently released a Plan C review.
For those interested in player rankings & player profiles, we also plan to include those as well on PlanetDestiny, once again with some unique twists and features to make them more interesting then what’s currently being offered.
Another area we are currently putting a lot of time and resources into is video content. We plan to cover all Exotic equipment, in both written reviews and accompanying video guides/reviews, creating a reference for all Exotics that beginners and experienced players alike can turn to for information & insight. With time we hope to cover more then just Exotic gear in those guides, such as the raids in the upcoming expansions.
Last but not least, we will have walkthroughs and how-to’s covering all the main story events, farming, chest hunts, reoccurring events and the usual informative articles and analysis/opinion posts that you’ve already come to expect.
In short, we aim to become your one-stop-shop for everything Destiny; Your Complete Guide to the Destiny Universe.
Want to take part?
With everything planned above, we are looking for a handful of resourceful staff members to assist us here on the site.
We are looking for contributors in the following fields:
- Guide writers (exotics, walkthroughs, farming, events)
- Database updates (we have all the live data straight from Bungie but need to keep additional data up to date)
- Gear reviews (weapons and armor, Legendary and Exotics primarily)
- Video content (walkthroughs, farming, events, analysis and opinion)
- Anything we haven’t thought of yet (maybe you have an idea that you think we should have?)
Please send an e-mail to [email protected] if you are interested in contributing. You would join a thriving, creative, passionate and skilled team of Destiny enthusiasts with ambitious goals, and good work is always rewarded in one way or another here at PlanetDestiny!
We’d like to extend our gratitude to everyone visiting, commenting and participating in one way or another in our community. We are thrilled to have you here and we will do everything we can to make your stay here as informative and inspiring as we can in the coming months ahead!
Feedback is incredibly important and appreciated here, so please don’t hesitate to let us know your thoughts.
