Destiny 2 is dropping Grimoire Cards – Bungie’s first-person shooter sequel Destiny 2 is dropping Grimoire Cards from the game. The cards featured heavily in the original Destiny, consigning much of the lore and story of the game to a series of cards that needed to be accessed on Bungie’s website, which forced players out of the game. The developer has made this move to put the lore in the game, with the entire story now being available to players without needing to visit a website.
Days Gone will at at E3 in “a big way” – Sony Bend’s open-world zombie title Days Gone will be at E3 “in a big way” – according to voice actor Sam Witwer. The game was first revealed at last year’s E3 to a positive reception, though we’ve heard no news about it since last June. While it always seemed likely that the game would make another appearance at this year’s E3, it now seems that the game will have a big presence.
