Don’t forget Destiny. Look, updates…
It’s taken a little while but the long awaited Destiny: The Taken King 2.2.0 update is now available to download. It’s a welcome shot in the arm for the game which has taken some flack in recent months for treading water.
Here’s a round-up of all the changes and additions:
Max Light raised to 335
Difficulty and Rewards have both been increased in Prison of Elders, Court of Oryx, Heroic Strikes, Nightfall Strikes and in the King’s Fall Raid as well as Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris.
Return to the Prison
Face the Taken and eight updated bosses in a Level 41 version of Prison of Elders. Visit Variks to play in a brand new mode, Challenge of the Elders, featuring scoring, weekly boss battles, gameplay twists and rewards.
Taken Strike: Winter’s Run
The Taken now corrupt this cell, from the Prison of Elders, where the Fallen House of Winter once attempted to raise a powerful Archon Priest. Fight your way to the cell.
Loot and infusion
New and updated rewards have been added to all high level activities. Infusion now upgrades gear to the existing Light of the consumed item directly.
Both Chroma and Taken-themed gear can be found in Sterling Treasures. Three Sterling Treasures can be obtained each week by visiting the Postmaster after each weekly reset, successfully completing one Level 41 Prison of Elders activity and completing one match in the featured Weekly Crucible Playlist.
Taken-themed Gear can also be earned, and a full set of Desolate Armor will unlock a unique Taken “Shiver” emote
Updated faction and Prison of Elders gear
Faction packages will now contain select Chroma-enabled versions of their Legendary armour sets at up to 330 Light. Updated Prison of Elders Legendary Gear is also Chroma-enabled and can drop at up to 335 Light in Challenge of the Elders.
Chroma is a new feature that can be applied to select sets of gear and weapons to further customise your Guardian
Well, there’s lovely. Let us know which of the Destiny updates you’re most excited or disappointed about.
