Bungie Weekly Update Recaps April Preview, Lists New Things to Earn

April 1, 2016Written by Michael Briers

Earlier this week, Bungie took to Twitch to host the studio’s second live preview of Destiny‘s much-touted April update, and the latest Weekly Update lends you a chance to catch up on everything you may have missed. 

Shedding light on the new content in store, Bungie took Guardians on a journey through the Reef, unearthing new weapons, ships, sparrows and boosts along the way. All of this — and more — can be seen in the video above. 

There’s also a “too long, did not watch” thread if you want a concise summary of what to expect when the update lands on April 12. 

  • The April Update will provide new Armor and Weapons for your Guardian
  • Chroma is a new material that enables you to add a luminous glow to your character
  • Sterling Treasure boxes are a source of new Armor, Chroma, Ships, Sparrows, and Boosts
  • You can earn a total of three Sterling Treasure boxes each week
  • Play one weekly Crucible match featured in the Director
  • Emerge triumphant from the Level 41 Prison of Elders
  • Visit a Postmaster in the Tower or the Reef
  • Eververse has Sterling Treasure boxes, too, along with new Emotes for your Guardian
  • Vault Space is being expanded with one additional tab for Armor, Weapons, and General items
  • Some popular Year One Legendary Weapons are making a comeback in Year Two
  • Chroma can be added to Weapons allowing you to customize the look of your gun for the first time
  • There is also a Taken Sword. And it’s pretty wicked…

Destiny‘s April update is slated to go live on Tuesday, April 12. Before that, a third and final livestream will take place on April 5 spotlighting the changes headed to the shooter’s Live Events.
