Destiny’s April Update fixates on endgame, revives favorite hunting grounds

Revealed in part on Twitch yesterday, Destiny’s April update is heavy on new activities and the Reef devastation storyline in the console pseudo-MMO. Drops and difficulty in some endgame maps are increasing, players are getting new cosmetic items and Taken-inspired items, and the Prison of Elders is due for an overhaul.

GameStop-owned publication GameInformer spoke to Live Events Leader Designer Ryan Paradis about Bungie’s explicit motivations with this patch. “Our goal with the April update was to hit a few different fronts,” he says. “We have a lot of fans who fell in love with exploration on the Dreadnaught, with our Strikes, and with the Prison of Elders, but they’ve moved past them. We wanted to revitalize some of these favorites, and at the same time provide new challenges and rewards. […] Another thing that was really important for us to accomplish with this update was to provide players more choices in how to become more powerful. The raid is a great endgame option, because it’s challenging, requires tons of coordination, and features our most complex mechanics, but for players who aren’t routinely raiding, we wanted to provide viable endgame gear upgrade options.”

I hear rumors that it will come out on PC some time this year — but be advised, that’s all they are: rumors.
Cheers,

Space_Ghostal As a mouse and keyboard guy I can tell you that Destiny is a really good console shooter. It doesn’t feel punishing like Black Ops III and I can actually do well in PvP.

If running POE now means something, I am ecstatic. Never had the chance to unlock all of my stuff before the new expansion.

I’ve always ment to play this (only had a short free trial). I see I can now get The Taken King Legendary Edition (that includes base game and all previous DLC’s) for $25. Hmm.

Space_Ghostal Honest think of what is there, then picture playing it on the PC, I’m not sure it’d be that great? For something to play on the console i loved it, it handles so well, but again for a console.

Damonvile Space_Ghostal I still would like to try it. It could kill a weekend or two.

Space_Ghostal I’m not sure I’d even bother now, but a year ago I would have jumped at this on PC.
