Ok since my last report tons of things have happened with the biggest news is of course the Great Jedi War finally getting official dates. So obviously FIST comps will be on hold for October and November. So when we get back be prepared for a slew of new and fun ideas that will bring us into the new year.
Then we had the release and day one support of Destiny 2. This game has had the DB Gaming channel buzzing for weeks now, but since launch that has changed to people helping people level and gear up. Member's have already started knocking out the Nightfall strikes and there is a push to get people geared to run the games first raid. If you play the game and are not in DB Gaming or not in the DJB Destiny clan let the FIST staff know or just ask in the Gaming channel once you are in it.
Just an FYI as of the time of this writing, Destiny 2 has seen a total of 52 submissions that have been approved in the first 10 days since launch. I’m proud to say that the staff were primed and ready to handle the influx of new activity. The end result being that every submission has been approved well within the expectations for approval.
Along with the Destiny 2 launch, both Overwatch and SW: Force Arena have had new modes added and are now supported by the Club for Clusters of Fire and Earth. Look at Drac’s linked reports in the news section for details.
The next big game on our scope is Battlefront 2 which will release in November but the Beta is set to open October 4th (for preorders) and October 6th for everyone, lasting to October 9th. The new Starfighter Assault is set to be playable as well so we hope to see many members checking the game out.
Finally, I just want to remind all DJB members that one of the reasons for the DBgaming telegram channel is to make it easier for you all to find people to play with. Now this can be used to find people to game for clusters for Gorefest, events or even just gaming for fun. So if you are having trouble and find yourself thinking I’ll never get clusters cause there is no one to game with, then come on down to DB Gaming! This club has every type of gamer, from the casual folks all the way to the hardcore competitive gamers.
Battlefront 2 - The Beta will be Oct 4 to the 9th (if you preorder) and 6th to the 9th for the general public. Oh and yes the Starfighter Assault mode will be available during the Beta. In fact check out the Starfighter Assault Trailer and tell me your not a little bit excited.
The game will be released on November 17, 2017, for PC, Ps4, and XB1.
As for Battlefront 1 you can get the Season Pass for free on XBOX and PS4 fpr a limited time. Grab it while you can!
Destiny 2 - Ok what to say about it that already hasn’t been let’s see. The Clan “The Legend Himself” cleared the new raid in about 6 hours for a world’s first and with Bungie themselves watching.
