THIS WEEK IN GAMING — EP 7
This week, we cover news from The Division movie, Pokèmon Go, Destiny: Rise of Iron, and Destiny 2.
The Division (film)
Ubisoft Motion Pictures
Ubisoft Motion Pictures is moving forward on their movie adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Division. Jake Gyllenhall was tapped to be the main protagonist and it was said that he would be big into the development process of the movie. Earlier this week, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Interstellar), was added to the cast and production team. The movie will be co-produced by both actor/actress’s production companies. No release date has yet been set for The Division’s movie.
The Division joins a pretty large stack of movies planned by Ubisoft including Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Watchdogs, Rabbids, and of course the Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassenbender. Assassin’s Creed comes out December 21st of this year.
It seems as if the first legendary Pokèmon has been caught! And then they were subsequently taken away by developer Niantic.
It remains unclear how the anonymous Pokèmon Go player nabbed his Articuno, but according to Niantic it was not legitimately caught and they removed it from the few players pokedex.
Rumors have it that a customer support agent handed the highly sought after Pokèmon, but it has not been confirmed.
Looks like we will have to wait a little longer to get our hands on those legendaries.
Destiny: Rise of Iron
Bungie released more info on the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion for Destiny. Most notably the new light level cap.
Once Rise of Iron drops on September 20th, the light level will boost from 335 to 385. But it does not stop there.
Along with the new DLC story content, Destiny is getting an all new raid. And a few weeks after the DLC launches, there will be a hard mode added to the raid that bumps the light level up to 400.
Destiny: Rise of Iron comes out on September 20, 2016 for PlayStation and XBox.
According to Activision, publisher for Destiny, most of Bungie’s team is hard at work on Destiny 2 already.
This may come as a surprise seeing that Destiny has the new Rise of Iron being released in less than two months.
Jason Schreier of Kotaku, was at Activision’s earnings call when the news was announced and said no other details were provided. It also was NOT confirmed that the new game was titled “Destiny 2" or “Destiny: Beyond” as some rumors point out.
