    I gave it another go and started enjoying it a bit more with my hunter. The super just seems so much more useful than the other two from what I've played of them.

    Went back and finished the story on my warlock afterwards and still struggled with the final boss a bit, whereas my hunter wrecked it in a minute with AOE + DOT + freeze in one super.

    Europa is bland as fuck though, and I really can't see it keeping me interested for long. Curious to see what the rumoured new area is that'll unlock after the raid world first clear.

    PvE wise I'm finding it ok, the sabotage and darkness fragments etc are a decent long tail. The main issue is just the lack of actual loot. Though I'm trying to get to 1230 for the raid this friday mainly.

    The reset mission on the moon is well worth playing... Goosebumps!

    That was a very nice surprise. Turned a flat season promising again.

    Yep, I'd pretty much given up on it yesterday, especially with how mind numbing the empire hunt loop is.

    Focussed gear grinds are back on the menu!

    Reset mission is available for everyone, not just season pass owners. After that you gotta have the pass to get definitely-not-Uldren's bounties and gear.

    By the way, after the expansion came out, the game has been running a lot worse for me. What's worse, I had to RMA the Ryzen 3600 and temporarily put back the 1500X, and performance is now abysmal in public areas, with framerate drops to the 30s and occasionally massive hitches too.

    I know the new consoles are 8-cores, but on PC players still have 4-cores for the most part. Whatever they did to the new engine, is it really a good idea to leave them behind?

    Should hopefully give some much needed focus on what we should be aiming for. Hopefully it isn't stupidly grindy to get anything half decent.

    Yeah, performance has taken a noticeable hit for me too and clan chat is full of people complaining about it.

    It seems more GPU limited than anything for me though. I'm tempted to try disabling Reflex to see if that makes a difference.

    Yeah I noticed things are running worse now but it seems GPU related for me. 4K/60 used to be reasonably straightforward but it's off the menu, even 90% resolution scaling isn't as good.

    Yep. You need to do lost sectors to get Beyond Light exotics.

    The load times are revoltingly good on PS5. Shame this season's activity involves having to grind years old content in order to unlock a two minute fight against a yellow bar enemy.

    Don't think I'll be playing much until the 4k60 update.

    So played on PC during Forsaken (at 100+fps) but as Beyond Light is on Xbox game pass thought I would give it ago. Didn't bother with Shadowkeep as the frame rate and heard the DLC was abit crap.

    How do clans work now then? As noticed when on the xbox I can see people in thr clan but are these PC players? Does that mean the game is now actually cross play? And last question is Beyond Light on Xbox even worth it?

    @Sharz

    Shadowkeep DLC was OK at the time, and had one of the greatest reveals in Destiny history, but it won't be as much of a wow moment now due to how the story has progressed. Worth blasting through still though.

    Cross save is active now so if you enable it you can just switch to PC or Stadia or whatever and pick up exactly where you were, so there aren't platform exclusive clans any more. Cross play isn't in the game yet though, you can only play with people on the same platform.

    Beyond light is worth dipping into, but it hasn't held my attention for long (same with the next season)
    Give it a go and see if you like it I guess (or if you've got a next gen console wait for the patch next month)

    @dfunked09
    Thanks, very useful info. Guess no harm trying out the Xbox version but buy beyond light on PC if really get it. Only have a Xbox One X so the frame rate may be an issue.
    Shame no cross play, having friends on multiple platforms can make things tricky. I assume the season pass crosses over atleast.

    @Sharz
    Yeah, you need to buy DLC on all platforms you want to play it on (obviously free on game pass)
    You only need to buy the season pass once and that'll unlock on all platforms. You can do a lot of stuff without it though, so best to dip your toes in first and see if you want to buy it.

    There were rumours of the game pass version coming to PC, but not sure how they'll manage that. PC version is pretty closely linked to Steam (using Steam network sockets for DDoS protection etc), so an MS store release seems unlikely.

    Cross play is coming next year, presumably with the next big expansion but perhaps even sooner.

    Btw, just found the Leviathan's Breath catalyst, and man, those kills are gonna take a long time. Just like the previous seasonal catalyst, the grind really favors season pass owners.

    When the next-gen patch comes out, I'll play the campaign on Xbox, but from what I can see, most of the big content so far is on the season pass rather than the expansion itself. So I don't think I'll miss out too much if I don't get the expansion on PC, especially since I don't raid.

    Jumped back in to this to see what's changed and as someone who's put a decent amount of time in to it but not bought SK or BL expansions or the season pass there is literally f*** all to do now other than bounties and the multiplayer stuff.

    On the plus side, all those old quests I took but never did have disappeared so I feel less guilty about not completing them.

    Shit, yeah, removing those campaigns would do that. Thatís not such a good deal.

    Is Shadowkeep worth the £10 it's going for on the PS store?

    Shadowkeep as an expansion is absolutely worth a tenner.

    However, bear in mind they have made anything you collect along your way utterly redundant with this latest expansion. Buy it for the levels, not the loot.

    I mean considering these sad fucks have datamined the shit out of it all already, I wouldn't count on it taking that long.

    They have full on glitched into the encounter areas for this one and extrapolated a bunch of info that seems to hint at what the mechanics are and what will happen during the raid. Obviously they will have to fill the gaps in on the fly but they are hardly going into it blind.

    @SolidSCB darn, people really want that reward belt, uh.

    I read that from now on, F2P players will be asked for a security code on their phone before they can play competitive multiplayer and even Iron Banner. I guess Bungie is cracking down on cheaters. But not hard enough to avoid glitches, it seems.

    I did take a peak at the raid last night, which I normally steer clear of. Iím guessing it was the final encounter but looked pretty cool indeed.
    Today I see the fallout (literally) has hit the game which is nice but these things do take away from the mystery a bit.
