Destiny 2 Year 4 reveal confirmed for June 9, as the Drifter heads to Europa

June 3, 2020 Bungie has confirmed a major Destiny 2 reveal for June 9.

Destiny 2 is approaching its 11th season, and past that, fans are eager to see what’s in store for the big, annual expansion expected to release in the fall. It seems that Bungie is eager to make the reveal, too – a teaser for what appears to be the Year 4 expansion briefly went live on Instagram, then another teaser has gone live inside Destiny 2, and now Bungie has officially confirmed a big ol’ reveal set for June 9. It looks like the expansion will take us to the long-rumoured location of Europa. The latest teaser features The Drifter launching a ship toward a moon of Jupiter – one that appears to be covered in ice. It’s now all but certain that Europa will be the setting for the new expansion. The teaser ends with the promise of a reveal on June 9 at 9:00 PDT / 12:00 EDT / 17:00 BST. That’s very shortly before Season 11 is expected to go live, and while it’s possible Bungie might reveal the new season just an hour before it goes live, it’s far more likely this is the reveal for the Year 4 expansion, and that the Season 11 content will help set the stage for the new expansion.

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey adds on-foot gameplay in early 2021

Elite Dangerous is already one of the biggest space games around, but soon it’s going to divert back to the, uh, first frontier. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is due to launch early next year, and will bring on-foot gameplay to the space sim, alongside a host of new content, NPCs, and gameplay systems to support that new way to play. The new planets you’ll land on will have outposts, settlements, and unique geographical features, and you’ll pick up new types of contracts to push you through that content. Objective types will be varied, and you’ll have the options to choose between everything from “diplomacy and commerce to lethal stealth and all-out combat”, as the Steam page explains. You’ll build up your character with different types of gear to engage in “first-person combat”, including options to “coordinate with teammates to master a multi-layered, deep, tactical environment where Commanders, SRVs and Starships converge.” There will be social hubs for you to “form alliances, procure services, and even find expert support in highly coveted Engineers”, as well.
