If there’s a rash of unexplained office and school absences today, it might be the fault of Destiny: The Taken King. The massive update is now live, fully unlocking the new content after last week’s 2.0 patch began the transition to Destiny’s second year.
The Taken King pits players against Oryx and his armies on the moon of Phobos. Players can power their characters to level 40, explore the new subclass quests, take on additional bounties, and conquer the expansion’s strikes. Simply by purchasing the expansion, players can boost their characters to level 25 to partake in the new content.
Unfortunately, the update has hit some snags, with some players reporting time-to-kill issues, lost progress, and activation bugs.
