Here’s what’s coming in Destiny 2’s Warmind expansion

In today’s Twitch reveal stream for Destiny 2: Warmind, the second expansion for Destiny 2, Bungie confirmed that players will be returning to Mars in this add-on. But this time, they’ll be exploring the planet’s thawing ice caps, not its red deserts. The Warmind Rasputin has awoken, and awaits players on the red planet. You will fight alongside Ana Bray and take on a formerly frozen Hive army known as the Grasp of Nokris in order to reach Rasputin’s core.

Warmind also brings quite a few updates to PvP, offering ranked modes for competitive (Glory) and casual (Valor) play. This new Crucible setup offers a real leveling experience for players in either mode. However, the competitive playlist will see you move up and down the ladder as you succeed or fail. Finally, each season will have a PvP-exclusive gun for players to chase after.

Dark Souls: Remastered will be discounted for owners of the PC original

It’s been a confusing couple of months for Dark Souls fans who already own the game on Windows PC and are considering upgrading to the forthcoming remastered version of FromSoftware’s game.

Today, publisher Bandai Namco made it perfectly clear: If you own the original Dark Souls release on Steam, you’ll be able to get Dark Souls: Remastered at a 50 percent discount.

Warmind, the second expansion for Destiny 2, is scheduled to be released May 8 — just two weeks from now — and Destiny developer Bungie is finally showing it off in a reveal livestream today.

Bungie will host the livestream on its Twitch channel, as usual, starting at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. It appears that this will be the only such event to discuss Warmind, which would be a departure from Bungie’s past practices; the studio typically holds two or three livestreams to detail future Destiny updates.

Here are the stats for the new weapon, from the patch notes:
