Destiny update 1.0.3 goes live ahead of The Dark Below EP

Bungie has released the huge Destiny update 1.0.3 adding new features like public voice chat.
Ahead of the first expansion pack, dubbed The Dark Below, Bungie has released a whopping 2.44GB update for the game.
Destiny update 1.0.3 introduces several changes to the original game in preparation for The Dark Below.
The biggest change is the addition of new voice chat options. They are entirely opt-in and enable players to communicate with other by turning on Team Chat.
Team Chat allows to players to communicate with each other on the same voice channel. You can still toggle between Team Chat and Fireteam Chat if you want to talk to your private Fire Team members.
Some of the other new features include increased bounty slots from five to 10, and changes to classes, weapons and inventories.
The Iron Banner Fire Team leader must now be level 20 or above, with any players below level 20 only accompanying those level 20 or above.
There are also some new features for the Iron Banner, called Tempered Buff and Reforging. The Tempered Bugg is a twelve-hour boost in reputation gains, while Reforging allow you to reforge weapons to reset progression with new perks.
You can look at all the update additions on the Bungie blog.

Bungie will release The Dark Below on December 9 for all platforms. It will be priced at £19.99, or you’ll get it for free as part of your Destiny Season Pass – priced at £34.99.
