Destiny 2 wants you back for Warmind, Humble Bundle has the game for a song right now

“Warmind is the start of a new conversation. It’s a step forward in the direction we want to start taking Destiny 2.”

There’s a lot riding on the release of Destiny 2’s Warmind DLC next week, and the developers aren’t shy about promoting the patch as a way to make up for some of the disappointment players have felt lately. In a new developer insights video, the team discusses the various activities and explorable areas that players will enjoy come May 8th.

While the campaign is important, Bungie sees the attached activities as what will be bringing players back again and again. A huge amount of location variety, a massive boss fight, and a Rasputin melee weapon are just some of the elements that are going into making this a memorable patch.

And if you’re wanting to check out the game right now – on the cheap – the Humble Bundle sub is currently offering the game as a sign-up deal for the annual subscription to the service. “Subscribe for $12/month to immediately unlock Destiny 2 (MSRP: $59.99) with more to come!” reads the blurb, and yes, you can cancel after paying that first month.

With thanks to Kris and Schmidt!

If they want me back it is simple.. focus on the PvE and the story and stop shoving crucible down my throat at every turn. They release a game big on story and full of PvE and then spend the next year throwing PvP relevant events and changeas at you at every turn.

Don’t profess to be ONe thing, while pushing another at us.. its misleading, disappointing and SHADY!

Its curious how their sales pitch of “we care more about dailies than the story” seems like a good idea to them

I think the humble monthly bundle is still great value when I compare it to getting a computer magazine in the UK like PC gamer every month back in the 1990’s (mostly for its cover CD’s which were packed with demos and occasionally a full indie game ) . That used to cost five pounds 20 years ago and for double that today you can get between 8 and 12 full games a month including some more higher profile games .

Curious what people think the problem with D2 actually is.

As someone who never really played D1, for me D2 has three faults:

1. Lack of social interactions and community within the game.

2. Shallow PvE content, its far too quick to complete all the content in the game and the repeatable content in the game isn’t as interesting to repeat because you have these rubbish reward and item progression systems. Most of the loot is useless that you get from normal play, with only useful items coming from the weekly milestones. However, all of the loot is random, there is no way to work towards specific pieces outside some of the reputation/store items.

3. Bungie have spent the majority of their post-launch time focusing on PvP. The matches are far too long and you can get much better PvP experiences from either an FPS (PUBG, CSGO, etc) where the gun play is better, or a full MMO (WoW, BDO, etc), where you have more class depth and options.

Btw, I guess I never actually commented here before. Is there no way to “subscribe” to a comment thread, or get notified when a thread you posted in has more activity? Or even to see your own comment activity? Makes it a little hard to have conversations :)

Generally I think you receive an e-mail when you’re replied to. You may receive one for this reply! (also when you are posting a reply, i dont know if its true for comments there is a little bell icon next to post comment that sets up notifications it seems on by default)

Thanks :) OK, I did get a notification about this, and I did find a way of subscribing to a comment thread, so that’s useful!
Are you supposed to be able to click on yourself or others and get a comment history or profile?
I’ll figure this out one day!

I’ve completely checked out of the Destiny series, but I hope this DLC delivers for those who are either wanting to return or are still actively playing it.

Destiny 2 ruined my view of Bungie. I literally feel like they stole my money with this game. Such a shallow piece of garbage. Warframe is so much better it hurts. Go out and try Warframe people.

Lol, Destiny 2 ? Nah, way too late to ever give Bungie any of my money again.

I’m gonna defend Humble Monthly here. I’ve been a subscriber from the beginning. Out of curiosity, I looked through the list of games I’ve gotten from it. Here are a couple of the ones I’ve enjoyed:

Undertale, Superhot, Wuppo, Rocket League, Dark Souls III, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, KF2, Elder Scrolls Online, Life is Strange, XCOM 2, Stardew Valley, Styx, Legend of Grimrock II, Valkyria Chronicles, Grim Fandango, Spelunky, Mad Max, Oddworld

And there are lots and lots more, most of which I never have time to try. A lot of the good ones aren’t even the “main” game or two that they tell you about early.
Many people here pay $15/month for an MMO sub. This is $11 a month for a constant stream of new, good games. Of course, I don’t know if it will continue to be good in the future, but it beats the hell out of most other bundles, which are $4 or so for 8 crappy Steam Direct games with no reviews. I don’t think the sale to IGN has hurt the quality. That’s a hard thing to measure, but even if it has, a little, the sub has been worth it to me.

Humble Bundle is basically dead to me now that Gamespot owns it: none of their bundles have interested me in the least, their prices have crept upwards, their website is all fancy (and that means it isn’t as easy to navigate as the old one), and the bundles have all been pushed into the background while the promote the monthly sub … the fact that they are now pushing the yearly sub just grinds it in.

There is absolutely nothing “humble” about any of it.

Do you remember how much of the sale they used to put towards charity before Gamespot took over?

Reader

In the monthly and the store it was never a large amount. The current percentage for the store is 10% minus processing fees, which I believe is the amount it has always been. For the monthly it’s 5%.

Where the percentage to charity can be large is in the bundles, where whoever purchases the bundle determines how much goes to charity; the default setting is 15% to charity, but the buyer can change it in any way they want.

Dug From The Earth

hmmm, in that case, not sure why someone would question the “humble” part of it then.

The article has it wrong; Destiny 2 is the pre-revealed game of this month’s Monthly Bundle. You get it if you are subscribed, regardless of how or when you subscribed.

They are only pushing the yearly subscription in the sense that there’s a discount for paying for a year at a time and you get $25 of store credit when you do it.

IGN purchased, not GameSpot.

And I honestly haven’t really noticed any changes. The normal/monthly bundles are still hit or miss, they’ve had some good ones and some shit ones (the Capcom PS3/4 one is solid right now), and their stand-alone sales are still the same as always.

They were already pushing heavily on the monthly prior to IGN since that’s a more sustainable/predictable revenue model (like it is with MMO’s!)

I’ve had some pretty good bundles in recent months since they took over but of course that is subjective .

And I’ve got Company of Heroes 2 , the Bureau X-Com declassified , Crusader Kings 2 , Homefront , Killer is Dead , Layers of Fear , Outlast to name but a few all free on humble bundle in the last year .

It seems a bit daft to say the site is “dead to me” simply because you don’t like the company that has taken it over ( and it appears you didn’t even get that right ) when you can still get free games and a still get a few bargains as well .
