Bungie Launches “Guardians for Australia Campaign” to Help Combat Bush Fires
Bungie launched their Guardians for Australia Campaign, in which half the T-shirt sale profits will be donated to charities fighting the bush fires.
Bungie, the Destiny 2 development studio, officially launched their Guardians for Australia Campaign that they previously announced on their official blog post last week. The charity campaign aims to raise money to combat the devastating bush fires currently raging in Australia.
According to the official site the T-shirt, which comes with an exclusive Destiny 2 “Star Light, Star Bright” emblem redemption code, will be available for pre-order on the Bungie Store and Bungie Store EU from now to Tuesday, February 18th at 9 a.m. Pacific, ending with the weekly reset and the end of the limited time live-event run of Crimson Days.
Half of all profits made from these T-shirt sales will be donated to NSW Rural Fire Service. The second half will be donated to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization.
Not only did the Destiny 2 latest expansion, Shadowkeep, launch but the franchise also received a new free-to-play model called New Light. Despite some server issues throughout the day, it looks as though players on PC were eager to jump into the game. According to GitHyp, Destiny 2 hit a peak of over 200,000 concurrent players back in October 2019 on PC. More specifically, the game’s height throughout the day nearly hit 219K players at one single point.
Recently on Twitter, Bungie shared a new infographic that detailed the exact offerings of Destiny 2: New Light, which adapts the game to a free-to-play format. New Light will start players out at Power Level 750 (with the ability to level up to max Power), and will provide free seasonal ranks and rewards.
On the campaign side of things, New Light will include The Red War (the base campaign of Destiny 2) along with the Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansion campaigns. Destiny 2: New Light will also include access to all Year One Exotic Weapons and Armor, the Crucible, Strikes, Year One Raids (and accompanying weapons and gear), in-game events, and more.
