Destiny’s Future Updates Revealed – Voice Chat, Cryptarch Changes, New Legendary Gear, and More

by Kyle Hanson


Bungie has just laid out a ton of their plans for upcoming updates to Destiny, which will include a lot of features and changes that the fans have been asking for. Apparently these updates will be hitting hard and fast starting very soon. As Bungie said “You’ve been asking for schedules and ETAs, but it’s best to save promises for the moment when you know you can keep them.” But that time is almost here as the update goes on to say that “We’re inbound with several bundles of joy in our hold. They’ll land in the weeks to come.”

Many of these new items have been discussed before, such as added voice communication options between matchmade players. However, Bungie has also revealed a number of new items that will be hitting Destiny in the coming weeks. These range from the mundane, such as fixes and patches, to the big stuff like new shaders and “a more generous Cryptarch”. Unfortunately they don’t go too far into detail here, although that is promised for a later date as we get closer to their release. Take a look at the full list below:

Previously Announced

  • Channels for talking to matchmade teammates, if you so wish
  • Exotic weapons that are stronger and more interesting to upgrade
  • New gear to let you slip into something a little more Legendary
  • That which waits in The Dark Below

New Items

  • New shaders for your gear
  • Ways to preview items before you spend your Glimmer
  • Greater chances of “showers” (Public Events) in public spaces
  • Adjustments to some arenas that needed better traffic flow
  • New economies to equip you with upgrade materials
  • Fixes, patches, and other invisible technical evolutions
  • Some other tricks up our sleeve
  • Maybe even a more generous Cryptarch
    • (he’ll still be sort of a bastard)
