Bungie said earlier this year that it hopes it will fix some of The Dark Below's mistakes with House of Wolves. In particular, the studio doesn't want to invalidate hard-earned raid gear with items you can just buy from vendors, or force players to re-upgrade exotic weapons. Instead, Bungie is aiming to "lessen the grind and get players to the fun parts of their arsenal faster," according to designer Luke Smith.

If you own a current or last-gen console, you can try Destiny for free for a limited time.

As part of the promotion, players can create and evolve a Guardian of their own and participate in story missions, as well as co-operative and social activities. Best of all, anyone who purchases the complete version of Destiny after participating in the demo or trial will be able to pick up right from where they left off with their Guardian and progression completely intact, provided they remain within the same console family.

The demo should be available through your console's digital storefront.

Cops Respond to 911 Hoax at ‘Destiny’ Exec’s Home

In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.

According to Komo News:

"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."

It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."

And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."

Let the conspiracy theories begin.
