Whoever thought of video game tie in cook books was clearly a genius. Take existing recipes, add some faff to do with the game, maybe rename the food so it’s the same as something in the game, laugh all the way to the bank. Warcraft, Fallout, and even Overwatch have their own cookbooks, despite Overwatch not featuring any in-game cooking. Destiny has, marginally, had cooking in it as there is an annual quest to bake cookies so a tie in cook book was inevitable.
“Based on Bungie’s acclaimed video game series Destiny, this official cookbook is filled with recipes inspired by the Guardians and locations seen throughout the game’s expansive universe,” says the blurb.
Eva Levante has traveled around the world after the events of the Red War, gathering a variety of recipes after crossing paths with many Guardians along the way and learning from their adventures. Craft, mouthwatering food from her diverse list of recipes inspired by the game’s unique world, plus step-by-step instructions and full-color photos, help guide and inspire fans to go on their own culinary adventure through the solar system.
A preview of some of the recipes reveals you will be able to make Wavesplitter cocktails, resembling the waves of Titan, Reveller’s Tonic, another drink, and Spicy Ramen which I am going to give a pass as there is a Ramen bar in the Tower. You can also bake Gjallardoodles, one of the cookies from the aforementioned quest, and coleslaw. According to the book, this was inspired by Xur’s face tentacles and Eva whipped a bowl or the crunchy snack to make the Emissary of the Nine feel welcome.
Earlier this month Bungie announced that it has made the decision to push back the release of the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion and the new date is now November 10th. Beyond Light is supposed to be the first of three new expansions that look to take Destiny 2 further. The other two expansions are The Witch Queen and Lightfall, and the plan behind these expansions is to extend the life of Destiny 2. Season of Arrivals will now be extended until the launch of Beyond Light.
In a statement Bungie said:
As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we’re really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date.
The past few months have been a challenge and will continue to be during this pandemic. We’ve learned to create together in a new way, by having to work apart from one another. Despite these hurdles, we’re still committed to the same level of quality that our fans expect.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling more of what we’re working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now extend to November 10. Beyond Light sets the stage for an incredible future in Destiny 2 and, though it’s coming later than we originally anticipated, we’re excited to continue that journey with you this November.
