Destiny 2 December Update: Economy, Investment, And Gameplay Changes, Plus New Rewards Systems
Destiny 2 developer Bungie has shared some details about the next major update for the popular first-person shooter. The game's director, Luke Smith, said on Twitter that on the systems side of the update, due December, players should expect economy, investment, gameplay updates, "and more."
"Next week the Destiny 2 team will detail the systems side of the December update," tweeted Smith. Bungie is set to discuss everything from "economy updates (vendors and acquiring their gear, tokens, legendary shards)" to "investment updates (new reward systems for weapons and armor)."
Players will get more details by the time Destiny 2's big update comes out this week. Furthermore, Bungie project lead Mark Noseworthy and Smith also plan to hold a Q and A session with fans as a way to respond to some of the feedback Bungie has received since the game launched.
Players recently discovered an XP Glitch in Destiny 2 where XP scales up during long or fixed duration activities such as Raids or Crucible matches and scales down when playing shorter activities such as Public Events. Bungie has since acknowledged this issue and announced that it'll fix the XP system.
Make sure to check back Tech Times for coverage as more details, both regarding the December update and the XP system change, become available.

Besides the expansion, Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 owners are also set to receive enhancements on the same day, which will patch the game to deliver "stunning gameplay with high dynamic range lighting." PS4 Pro players will get "adaptive 4K resolution," while Xbox One X folks will get regular 4K.
Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September and then for PC a month later.
