Bungie Announce New Reveal Stream, Cutoff Date For Destiny End of Life on PS3 and Xbox 360Just...don't nerf fusion rifles. Please?07.19.16 - 3:16 AM
Bungie had already made it known during their initial reveal stream for Destiny: Rise of Iron
that support would soon end for the PS3 and Xbox 360 editions of their "Shared-World Shooter." However, those still on last-generation hardware were wondering exactly when "soon" would be. Now we know. According to Bungie's weekly roundup of all things Destiny
, "This Week At Bungie
, starting on August 16th, Legacy Consoles will no longer receive major Destiny updates or content releases. To quote Bungie's Destiny Player Support: "On this date, the Account Import process will become available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Consoles. From this date forward, progression will no longer be shared between console generations within the same console family." Here's a quick rundown of some other changes:
- Destiny Events and Activity Availability will be changing for Legacy Consoles on August 16th, 2016.
- Activities such as Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris will continue to be available to Legacy Console players through the end of August 2016.
- The ability to purchase Silver will no longer be available on Legacy Consoles starting August 16th, 2016.
- Players may still purchase items from Eververse Trading co. with Silver that is already present on their account.
Finally, for all those interested fireteams, Bungie will show off a remodeled Cosmodrome location (featuring more SNOW! Ooh, ahh!) that will be appearing in Rise of Iron on their Twitch page on Wednesday, July 20, 2016.
Destiny released on PS3/4 and Xbox 360/One in 2014.
