PSA: Xur won't be going to Mercury today

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

So if you didn't buy Curse of Osiris, you can still hang with him.

Having had to dramatically change how content access works in Destiny 2 following a public outcry after Curse of Osiris locked a bunch of base-game activities, Bungie has made it clear it won't make the same mistake twice and will keep Xur away from Mercury, the new expansion-only social and patrol space.

Everyone's favorite weekend vendor will be back again later today when the daily reset hits, and while we don't know where he will take up position, Destiny Player Support manager dmg04 tweeted that he won't be making his way to the red planet:

Xur should be worth checking in with this week, of course, as the whopping December 12 patch updated his inventory, introducing the Fated Engram (a super-expensive 97-shard engram that guarantees an exotic you don't already have) and reintroducing Three of Coins (a four-hour buff that increases the exotic drop-rate).
