destiny update

A brand new update has been released for Destiny and it brings in a couple of new features to the game. Firstly we will finally be getting some new Iron Banner content and secondly a refer a friend program has been added.

With the Iron Banner, the game mode is finally getting added back to Destiny. This time round a few things will be different, including reward loot. Here is an excerpt from the blog by Destiny's senior designer Derek Carrol.

"I'd expect to see a bit less Super ability usage, and a lot more shooting across the board, but good teams will work together and hold territory even without the scoring incentives that Control provided. This will be the first time we've played Clash with power differences enabled, so it will be interesting to see how power affects this most basic of 6v6 gametypes."

As for loot, things will be a lot more rewarding this time round. 20% more reputation is being rewarded for wins and better rewards are being handed out in general for all levels.

The refer a friend program will also be coming to Destiny soon. The program has not yet been added, but it's pretty simple - you tell your friend to put in your username when they play Destiny for the first time and you'll be given a reward of some kind. This is actually a pretty neat idea for this time of year because it will encourage gift givers to hand out a copy of Destiny to their friends instead of other games for the Christmas season.
