But destiny 2 is out now...


Oh, thats why my staff are turning up extremely tired and discussing "Raid"...
Had it for almost a year now, one of the best games I've ever played

Unlike Destiny, COD, Battlefield etc. every single update is free and they frequently balance the game's mechanics every 3-4 weeks so you never feel cheated by players doing annoying stuff.

It launched at about the same time as Battlefield 1. B1 has had 1 paid DLC update since then.

Overwatched has introduced 4 new character types, close to 15 new maps, over 5 new game modes and had close to 10 seasonal events which have exclusive play modes and one off unlockables.

Plus it cost me £25 then and it's the same price or less now

2 actually but yeah, it's a poor show...

It's probably my ailing reaction times but I still prefer Battlefield to these 12-men-in-a-box games.
I got Titanfall 2 but regardless of the result, the default game modes become tedious very quickly.
I do like the co-op PvE mode though - perhaps I should bend over to pick up Activision's Destiny 2 soap

Heat for the heads up - it was a previous F2P weekend that helped me decide that this game wasn't for me

I am! I could have said Hanzo, Widow or Trash Mouse
I don't like shooters much.

I really enjoy Overwatch.

It really is the game for people who don't gel with the insta-headshot reflex world of COD and the like. Yeah, I quite like a bit of those characters every now and again, but in my session this morning I played two different kinds of healers, two different tanks, a builder / turret and a DPS - and enjoyed playing all of them. The sheer variety, easy to learn mechanics and balance makes it ideal for casuals and short bursts - but I've heard the meta-game isn't quite as strong.
Thanks, will give it a go. Seems like a good game. I'm a Battlefield player and other games haven't grabbed me like that has. I'm curious if this will. Sounds like a contender!
Excellent game.
How many gb is it on ps4?
Thanks

I guess 7pm is not the start of the free weekend then? Still costs on the store.

Have you tried closing/re-opening the Blizzard app? That is what I did and it changed from buy to try for free.

PC is always better...

.
Its a decent game. However there are far too many immature trolls playing it - spamming insults and general nonsense in the chat. And good luck working as a team, too many players don't or want to work together - they just pick an easy attacking class and run off by themselves, just wanting a high score.
Over the weekend the PC standard version is £19.99, this is the best price that you'll get this game for and it's not very often on promotion.

Try the free version, then buy it here: eu.battle.net/sho…tch

The Game of the Year Edition doesn't really offer much benefit for £10 extra.
give this a go, not brill at FPS mind

Thanks very much . I couldn't find it in the search, still can't now, didn't know it was hiding away!
Thought i was getting pretty damned good at this game tonight ,it's just all the new players LOL.
It is certainly a very polished game, now back to Insurgency and one shot one kill.

Yeap thanks. Did that and it worked. Downloaded now.
This game quickly gets boring. The best multiplayer game on PC right now is Dawn of War 3 after the latest patch.
