On Tuesday, April 12, Bungie will release Destiny update 2.2.0 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, the developer announced today.

Bungie will host Twitch streams over the next three Wednesdays at 11am PT/2pm ET to preview the new things to do, new things to earn, and Sandbox and Crucible changes. For now, here’s what they’re saying is included with the April Update:

  • 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…

“If you have Destiny: The Taken King, the April Update is included with your purchase,” they added. “When the time comes, download the update and you’ll be good to go.”

The April Update will also add new Clan Leaderboards to Bungie.net:

Of course, when we take steps to enhance your social ecosystem, we run the risk of kicking the status quo squarely in the face. This is the first time we’ve been able to reflect Clan stats on Bungie.net. For that to work, about 200 Clans will encounter some minor housekeeping. If your Clan includes more than 100 people across two platforms (i.e. PlayStation Network and Xbox Live), you’ll see your members broken out across two rosters in your existing private group. The older of the two Clans will need to be given a new unique name. In my case, the Gunslingers would become “Gunslingers PSN” and “Gunslingers XBL,” or something similar. You’ll be able to make the change in a way that suits your style. Also, if you’re the Founder of a Clan of which you’re not a member, you’ll be asked to choose a Captain to lead that Clan as a member of your staff.

Later this year, Bungie will release a new Destiny expansion. Then, in 2017, a full Destiny sequel will be released.
