Destiny Receives Last Scheduled Patch on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

The end of an era.

Developer Bungie has released the last scheduled patch for Destiny on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as focus turns on solely supporting the current-gen versions of the shared-world shooter.

Version update 2.3.1 will be last for legacy consoles unless the developer drops another for “emergency fixes for future game-breaking issues”.

The current patch makes a smooth path before the launch of Rise of Iron, including issues with some Guardians not receiving the Moments of Triumph book from the Postmaster.

That’s only a snippet of what the patch brings. If you have the time, check out the patch notes in full below.

Classes

  • Fixed an issue where Solar-based Damage-Over-Time (DoT) effects were dealing half their intended damage
  • Fixed an issue where the Intellect stat was not generating the correct amount of Super energy
  • Fixed an issue where selecting the Electrostatic Mind perk removed the Super regeneration provided by the Intellect stat

Armor

  • Exotics: Fixed an issue that prevented the Apotheosis Veil helmet from being accessible in the Exotic Armor Blueprints kiosk

Activities

  • Fixed an issue that could cause weekly activities from ending earlier than the weekly reset
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Legendary Marks from being granted when finishing the “Paradox” and “Lost to Light” missions when they are
  • the featured Daily Story Mission
  • Fixed an issue where players with a full Postmaster inventory did not receive the Moments of Triumph book
  • Players who did not receive their Moments of Triumph book can now find it in the Postmaster

Unfortunately, Rise of Iron will only launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, with issues revolving around the removal of core gameplay the reasoning behind the decision.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg for legacy console owners. All future DLC content will only be made available to current-gen consoles, with certain events limited to last-gen Destiny players.

Not only will PS3 and Xbox 360 users loss out on future content, some of the already established events will be taken away. These include, the Iron Banner and the weekly Trials of Osiris.
