IGN is showcasing Destiny for the month of July with daily coverage that began on the 7th. They release their coverage at about 9 am PDT Monday through Friday. You can find it yourself at [url]http://www.ign.com/[/url] or come here for the entire collection of links to the coverage as it is released. I thought it would be nice to have all of the IGN coverage compiled in one place, so I will edit this topic and continue to add all the IGN coverage as it comes, starting with the day 2 coverage, since collectors edition and beta information is pretty well known by now. Feel free to let me know if I missed any relevant links. [b]7/8[/b] The Venus crucible map Shores of Time was extensively showcased: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaIZrHzZmS8]Developer walkthrough[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGkSExg7Sps]Shores of Time gameplay[/url] [b]7/9[/b] Rusted Lands was showcased, for whatever odd reason: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTmWS3V6g5Y]Developer walkthrough[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeUFz8NEIYY]Rusted Lands gameplay[/url] It's interesting to note that the player earned psn trophies while playing. [b]7/10[/b] Today a Mars crucible map, Blind Watch was showcased: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y50O1SMnPO8]Developer walkthrough[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTxKlN9BweY]Blind Watch gameplay[/url] Interesting information was revealed about heavy ammo. It comes in ten seconds after the crucible announcer mentions it, and everyone in a 20 meter radius on a team receives heavy ammo when a member of that team activates the pickup. [b]7/11[/b] The moon crucible map First Light, an alpha map, was toured today: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxVu43Kp0F0]Developer walkthrough[/url] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-qI0zvh8zE]First Light gameplay[/url] First Light is the largest map that will be featured in the beta, as well as the only map that includes vehicles. The time of day can be different each time the map is loaded, which was also demonstrated in the previous crucible maps but I forgot to mention. [b]7/12-7/13[/b] No coverage. [b]7/14[/b] The companion app is featured: [url=http://youtu.be/QJsIY7RrVuY]Companion App[/url] At around [url=http://youtu.be/QJsIY7RrVuY?t=2m33s]2:30[/url] the titan is shown to have 3 subclasses, pretty much confirming there are three subclasses per class. [b]7/15[/b] A pretty useless video of well known tips was uploaded today: [url=http://youtu.be/CSiQC_F224s?list=UUKy1dAqELo0zrOtPkf0eTMw]Seven well known tips.[/url] One interesting bit of information in the video is that there are five golden chests in the Cosmodrone area. Other than that, pretty disappointing day of coverage. [b]7/16[/b] IGN recaps their experience with the beta: [url=http://youtu.be/G1opIH238wc?list=UUKy1dAqELo0zrOtPkf0eTMwt]Recap[/url] [url=http://youtu.be/DS0BNxKWW_o?list=UUKy1dAqELo0zrOtPkf0eTMw]Beta review[/url] [url=http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/16/how-the-destiny-beta-made-me-a-believer-a-ign-first]Text version of review[/url] IGN contradicts itself on level cap with the text version of the review saying level 8 and the video stating level 7. Hylebos has a character at level 8, which seems to confirm a level 8 cap though (thanks to DigitalRegality for pointing this out). [b]7/17[/b] Crucible mechanics are summarized: [url=http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/17/destiny-lead-designers-pvp-multiplayer-tips-a-ign-first?abthid=53c7f324dc03258b0300000f]Mechanics Summary[/url] Expect delay on further updates. I will not guarantee punctual updates once I have the beta on my ps4. I do however plan to continue updating, so come back for more later. [b]7/21[/b] IGN has put up Xbox One footage: [url=http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/21/destinys-first-ever-1080p-xbox-one-footage-ign-first]"First 1080p Xbox One footage"[/url] The video hasn't been uploaded to youtube for some reason. Sorry mobile users. The beta will apparently not be running at 1080p, but by release Xbox One users will have Destiny at 1080p.
