Exclusive Magic: The Gathering Kaladesh Gremlins Preview

Magic: The Gathering's upcoming Kaladesh set is filled with vibrant spells and majestic artifacts.

With an all new energy resource, vehicles for creatures to hop inside and pilot, and decision making mechanics taking center stage, Wizards of the Coast is moving hard from the gothic horror of the last year and going bright and brilliant. If you're heading out into this realm of creativity and artifice, these preview cards may help wreck and ruin an opposing mage's great inventions.

While some of the other colors have moved to make the most of amazing contraptions and wild artifacts, red comes with a new threat to smash and destroy all the tinkering and toiling. Not goblins, not yeti, not orcs, and not barbarians, but the somewhat disturbing and somehow cuddly gremlins! Check out two of the new gremlin cards below!

Kaladesh launches on September 30, with prerelease events happening on September 24-25 if you want a chance to get started on those incredible inventions early.

An Exclusive Tour Of Destiny: Rise Of Iron’s Archon’s Forge

We're continuing to roll out exclusive features detailing Bungie's upcoming Destiny: Rise of Iron. While visiting the studio for our September cover story, we sat down with world designer Dan Callan and world artist/level designer Alex May to take a deeper dive into a new PvE space called Archon's Forge. Found in the Plaguelands, Archon's Forge is an arena that draws similarities to both Prison of Elders and Court of Oryx, in which fireteams fight waves of dangerous Fallen to collect rewards. Callan and May lead viewers through the thought process of designing the space, its development history, and a few interesting details highlighting Fallen culture. If you like this detailed walkthrough of the space, be sure to investigate a similar tour of the Crucible map Vertigo from last year.

Check out the video below to see new gameplay from Destiny: Rise of Iron and get a tour of the mysterious Archon's Forge.

Revealing Supremacy: Exclusive Gameplay Of Destiny’s New PvP Mode

With our month of coverage on Bungie's Destiny: Rise of Iron, we've shown you plenty of gameplay from the campaign and PvE content but now we want to show off the new crucible mode Supremacy. While visiting the studio we were able to capture several rounds of the new mode played by Bungie's senior multiplayer designer Leif Johansen. Supremacy tasks Guardians with scoring points by picking up "crests" that fall after a player is killed. Players can also pick up crests dropped by their fallen teammates, robbing the enemy team of potential points. It's a core concept that should be familiar to players who have ever enjoyed a match of Call of Duty's Kill Confirmed.

Check out the video below to see Supremacy in action on three of Destiny: Rise of Iron's new maps, and don't miss today's other big Destiny news: Bungie just announced the existence of private matches

An Exclusive Roundtable With Destiny: Rise Of Iron’s Story Team

Visiting Bungie for our cover stories on the original Destiny and Destiny: The Taken King, there's always been one aspect of Bungie's universe that has eluded the spotlight: The writing team. This time, with our cover story on Destiny: Rise of Iron, we finally got the opportunity to meet and speak with some of the key figures responsible for continuing the story of Destiny.

Game Informer's senior previews editor (and Destiny lore fanatic) Matt Miller is honored to sit down with lead writer Chris Schlerf, senior writer Christine Thompson, writer Jill Scharr, and cinematic lead Matthew Ward to talk about the evolution of characters and storytelling in Destiny. The video discussion starts out on broader topics including the challenges of writing the Grimoire and adding humor to the game, but continues on into an intricate discussion covering the history of the Iron Lords, the importance of flavor text for equipment, and the potential future of key Destiny characters, including some choice tidbits about the mysterious Efrideet. Also, we should note, in the video the team occasionally refers to Destiny: Rise of Iron by its internal Bungie name "DLC 3".

Watch the video discussion below to learn from the team what it takes to write Destiny: Rise of Iron, how they think the game compares to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the ways they're inspired by Arthurian legend, and whether Cayde is ever going to get out of the Tower.
