Must read


Xbox and Bungie have teamed up with pro snowboarder Grant Giller to break the Guinness World Record title for the largest projected gaming screen, inspired by the icy slopes and craters of Europe in Destiny 2: Beyond the Light, Xbox projected Beyond Light onto a 180 x 105-foot-wide screen on the side of a Colorado mountain. An Xbox Series X was used by Giller to play Beyond Light on the skyline of a 10 mile mountain range in the state at an elevation of over 11,000 feet, making it one of the highest video game projects ever produced, according to Xbox.

“Despite the extremely cold conditions, all the necessary equipment used to make this world record possible was maintained during scattered snowstorms during filming, without any system failure,” Xbox said.

This mountainside play session came after Giller spent his day snowboarding Copper Mountain, Colorado with a custom Destiny 2 x Xbox snowboard and a matching sweater, as you can see below.

Giller was able to play Beyond Light with a frame rate of 60 fps and 4K resolution (although the dimensions of a mountain-sized screen might have changed the way it worked) thanks to the recent next generation update, which is now available on Xbox Series X, Series S, and PlayStation 5.You can read our thoughts on the latest expansion for Destiny 2 in our Destiny 2 review: Beyond Light.
