Update news and Xur over by the Speaker, can you handle the excitement!

Don’t get too excited, Xur is still a prick and has brought almost nothing worth buying. On the brighter side of things Bungie released some real news in the Weekly Update this week.

Let’s touch on the update coming April 12th. Here is what they have promised:

  • New PVE Challenges
  • New and Updated Gear
  • New Quest featuring the Blighted Chalice Strike
  • Increased Max Light and Rewards
  • Sandbox and Crucible Updates
  • And more…

Taken GuardiansBungie has also said that the update will come a no charge to those of us who already own the Taken King. In the new age of Destiny micro transactions this is really great news. It is also a bit desperate (though very smart) in my opinion. It feels like they are maybe trying to win back some of the players that have left for another game!

To my knowledge they have not released any of the new gear that they have promised (unless it is the stuff we already know is in the Armory), nor have they let it out what the new quest story line is. Makes me excited to watch the series of streams they will be showing on Twitch in the coming weeks. Save the dates:

April Update Preview: New Things to Do
Wednesday, March 23rd – 11AM Pacific
April Update Preview: New Things to Earn
Wednesday, March 30th – 11AM Pacific
April Update Preview: Sandbox and Crucible Updates
Wednesday, April 6th – 11AM Pacific

In the meantime, have a great Destiny week everyone!

Enjoy Xur Mar 11 – Location and Recommendations!
