Have you tried and finished Destiny: The Taken King’s raid, King’s Fall? Well, apparently there’s more secrets left to uncover within.
While Bungie’s Creative Director Luke Smith confirmed the existence of Oryx’s basketball court, the area, unfortunately, doesn’t contain any loot.
Oryx’s Basketball Court is a fun Easter Egg the team put together. It’s just a place to Dunk like your neighbors 8 ft rim. No loot to find

Also of note to Destiny players is that Tess Everis will be returning to The Tower with a new look, and a slew of new emotes for players to purchase. However, you won’t use glimmer to purchase these new emotes, but “Silver,” which is Bungie’s new in-game currency that will use real world money. Both the new currency and new emotes will be available next Tuesday, October 13.
This coming Tuesday, October 13th, Tess Everis will return to The Tower with a new look, a new storefront, and some new items to sell, courtesy of Eververse Trading Company. Initially, Tess will offer eighteen brand new emotes. Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector’s Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won’t impact the action game in any way.To acquire these items, you’ll first need to pick up some “Silver,” a new in-game currency that will be available for purchase through the store associated with your console. Images and descriptions for each available emote, along with pricing information for Silver will be made available Tuesday, October 13th, alongside the launch of the in-game storefront right here on Bungie.net as soon as the content is live.
Bungie has stressed that players won’t be forced to buy the new emotes and that it won’t affect the gameplay at all. The studio also explained where they’ll be using the funds they’ll get from the emotes as well.
If you’re not interested in what Tess has to offer, you won’t ever be forced to pluck an item off of her shelf. You’ll still receive updates to the game, and you won’t lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn’t have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped.Our plan is to use these new items to bolster the service provided by our live team for another full year, as they grow and create more robust and engaging events that we’ll announce later this year. It has been, and continues to be, our goal to deliver updates to the game. Going forward, our live team is also looking to grow beyond vital updates and improvements to focus on world events, experiences, and feature requests.If you’re still skeptical, you can log in next week and take a look for yourself. We’ll be dropping some free Silver into your account so you can purchase an emote or two and become legend through the power of dance.
Are you OK with Bungie selling emotes with real world money or should they make it attainable with in-game currency? For more on Destiny, make sure to read our The Taken King feature where we list nine things you might not have known.
