Destiny April update detailed by Bungie

The Destiny April update contents have been revealed in full, and include a new Strike, more loot and even a higher Light level for Guardians to aim for.

Bungie provided details on the forthcoming update in a blog post, following a Twitch stream which also shed light on what’s to come.

Firstly, the maximum Light level has been raised to 335, and with it, the difficulty of the Prison of Elders, Court of Oryx, Heroic Strikes, Nightfall Strikes, and in the King’s Fall Raid has been raised. But fear not, the potential rewards for all of these has also been lifted.
