Earlier this week, Bungie ran a livestream detailing Destiny‘s April update, an archive of which is now available for viewing above. However, the developer clarified that unlike what was mentioned in the show, the Prison of Elders will not have any checkpoints.

In a blog post, Community manager David “DeeJ” Dague also mentioned a few things which we weren’t discussed during the stream:

  • King’s Fall will drop rewards up to 330
  • Court of Oryx will drop Artifacts up to 335

In case you want a quick rundown, here’s what was discussed:

  • The April Update arrives on 04/12/2016
  • New content will be available to players of Destiny: The Taken King
  • The King is dead, but the Taken War rages on in our Solar System
  • Variks the Loyal has a renewed call to arms to battle Taken foes
  • Guardians will face new challenges through new Quests, Bounties, and Strikes
  • Maximum Light is being raised to 335, with many new ways to level up
  • Prison of Elders has a new Level 41 mode to empower you reach 320
  • Challenge of Elders is a new Level 42 scored mode to empower you to reach 335
    – Players who achieve High and Cumulative scores are guaranteed Weapons and Armor
    – Challenge of Elders rewards have up to 335 Light, depending on your power

In addition to the above, Bungie also released screenshots from the Strikes, which you can check out in the gallery below.
