Destiny’s April Update, Patch 2.2.0, Arrives the 12th of Next Month

By on

Bungie announced today that patch 2.2.0, which henceforth will be referred to as the “April update,” would arrive in just under a month.

And it seems like a doozy, one that will be available for free if you own The Taken King. If you don’t own that expansion, then maybe this update will have enough fresh content to lull you back into Destiny’s warm embrace. The features look something like this:

  • 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…

Bungie says there’s something for every Guardian in the new update, and they’ll be dolling out the specifics over the next few weeks on their Twitch channel.

The schedule for those looks something like this:

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

 April is shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for Destiny. Are you looking forward to the update? Or did you leave behind this Destiny to find your own? Or did you just trade in one Destiny with another in the form of The Division?
