Destiny 2 Xbox One issues roundup: Connection issues, freezes, and more

Margin Makers: Guide to Destiny 2 merchandise

The highly anticipated online shooter, Destiny 2, has finally been released to the masses. Lighthouse access is an important addition for lovers of the original game. What follows is a fun, and unexpectedly light-hearted campaign that spans across multiple locations in the solar system.

The original Destiny, released in 2014 from the studio behind the popular Halo series, was a huge hit.

Once Destiny 2 Expansion 1 launches, attention will turn to Destiny 2 Expansion 2.

There was a time when players were forced to ride around the same repetitive areas collecting upgrade materials, or when progressing upwards in the game's level system required you perform the same activity every week, hoping to get lucky and score one specific piece of rare armor.

Destiny 2 PlayStation exclusive content expiry date - when does PS4 Destiny 2 content come to other platforms? This is about as blatant a money grab as you'll ever see. Moreover, players can mix and match shaders to create any color scheme they can imagine.

Hurricane Katia Slams Into Mexico's Veracruz State
Katia transitioned from a tropical storm to a hurricane on Wednesday afternoon, and was a Category 2 hurricane as of 4 p.m. Katia is the 11th named storm this Atlantic hurricane season and follows Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose .

However, Destiny fans are not strangers to the controversial struggle between players and developers.

Other Destiny 2 bugs are more cosmetic and annoying and are not really problems that get in the way of completing gameplay.

In many ways, Bungie's new shader system works better than before. Bungie also posted the roadmap of activities players can expect in the first month - next week will see the opening of the first raid, Leviathan, as well as the Trials of the Nine in PvP and the return of the elusive Xur, vendor of Exotics. Is it fair to call Destiny 2 an apology?

Destiny 2 promises a real narrative. The only downgrade I notice is in the soundtrack, which has never seemed to recover since Bungie unceremoniously fired Marty O'Donnell (who also composed the score for Bungie's Halo titles). Thankfully, that's not the case as moment-to-moment combat and exploration is solid as a rock. A collection of things come together to make Destiny's shooting sing. Maddeningly, Bungie has refused to do this for Destiny 2.

Read: Destiny 2 Classes: Which Class Should You Choose? After watching the ensuing skirmish between fan and developer play out over the internet, it looks like the issue of shaders isn't going away anytime soon, reason being that it "inspires gameplay". The Verge calls the PC version of Destiny 2 - which supports 4K resolution, uncapped framerate, and full mouse/keyboard support - "spectacular". But one change that Bungie made has left players fuming: In Destiny 2, armor shaders are single-use consumable items. Increase it by acquire gear with a higher power rating.
