Destiny: The Taken King April update now live

The long awaited Destiny: The Taken King 2.2.0 update is now available to download on Xbox One and PS4.

Here’s the official description:

The battered remnants of the Reef are mopping up the lingering Taken forces throughout the system. The worst have been captured by the Awoken and await judgment in the Prison of Elders but a pretender to Oryx’s vacant throne has escaped Variks’ vengeful grasp. Hunt the dark beast down before he grows too powerful and reap the rewards that await you.

Amongst a host of additions to the Destiny universe, players will experience:

  • Return to the Prison – For the first time, face the Taken and eight updated bosses in a Level 41 version of Prison of Elders. Visit Variks to partake in a brand new mode, Challenge of the Elders, featuring scoring, weekly boss battles, gameplay twists and rewards.
