Weedle wins Pokémon Go June Community Day vote

After receiving the most votes from players, Weedle has emerged victorious as the Pokémon Go June Community Day focus.

On June 20 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. in your local time, Weedle will be spawning in abundance with a high chance of it being Shiny.

Elite: Dangerous adds Fleet Carriers, with players staged for a massive expedition

Elite: Dangerous adds the hugely anticipated Fleet Carrier starships to its roster today, and a dedicated group of players are assembling for a massive flotilla to the furthest reaches of the virtual Milky Way galaxy. Even new players should be able to come gawk at the spectacle kicking off in the next 24 hours.

Players have been mining for months to earn enough in-game currency to buy the new Carriers, which cost billions to acquire and maintain. Carriers essentially serve as mobile starbases, with facilities that allow for refit, repair, and storage of up to 16 smaller ships. They also have an incredible jump range of 500 lightyears. That’s more than 100 times further than a starting ship and 10 times further than some high-end, exploration-focused starships.

On June 9, Bungie unveiled the future of Destiny 2. The studio showed off the fall expansion, Beyond Light, and finally revealed details on Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals, which went live an hour later. But Bungie also spoke about the next three years for Destiny, mentioning the expansions coming in 2021 and 2022: The Witch Queen and Lightfall.

Alongside that three-year plan, Bungie announced a new feature called the Destiny Content Vault. The studio will remove some current content from the game as it adds new locations and activities. Old content — including locations, strikes, and raids that players left behind in the original Destiny — will then come out of the Destiny Content Vault. This includes the return of Destiny’s beloved Vault of Glass raid sometime in Year 4.
