Bounties have always been an awesome idea, but it was always cumbersome having to turn them in at the Crucible. Now you don't have to. Bounties can now be turned in straight from the menu. Throw in the new ability to track the progress of four bounties during gameplay, and it becomes apparent how much better the bounty system is.
There is no excusing the lack of content in Destiny's original package. There just wasn't enough missions. Now with the three expansions, there is finally enough content to keep gamers busy for a long, long time.
If you purchase the physical edition of Destiny: The Taken King, you are getting a great value. It includes the base game, House of Wolves, The Dark Below, and The Taken King. That is $80 worth of DLC AND the base game.
Vanguard and Crucible Marks are no more. Destiny's confusing currency system is gone, as there is now only one currency to care about - Legendary Marks. This simplified system makes the game much less confusing and even more accessible.
Screw trying to find gear with a high amount of Light, now shooting enemies will level you up past level 20. This is the way how levelling up should have worked the entire time.
There is a lot of cool gear and weapon to collect in Destiny, which is why it was so frustrating to have such limited vault space! Thankfully, vault space has been doubled, so you'll have all the space you need to keep your exotic weapons!
The reaction to Peter Dinklage's voice-over as the Ghost was mixed, to say the least. To make sure the character has a consistent voice throughout every piece of content, Bungie has recast the character with Nolan North. We're fans of North's work, and he does great work in Destiny.
There wasn't much story in Destiny, but there was an intriguing world to explore. In The Taken King, Bungie has added quest lines. These quests should tell a much better narrative than what was in the base line, which isn't hard considering how there wasn't much of one!
There is really no good reason that this wasn't included in the base game, but finally players can skip cutscenes. No longer do you have to sit through the same scene repeatedly when replaying missions. This is one case where it is better late than never!
Do you want to jump straight into Destiny: The Taken King's content? Well, with the Spark of Light you can! This one-time use item will level up a character straight to level 25. This will let you experience all the new content without having to level up your character.
