After waiting for a long time (too long, if you ask them), the PC fans finally got the opportunity to play the full version of Destiny 2. We can’t deny that it’s looking phenomenal, but the developers aren’t taking things for granted even now when the game is up and running. Bungie has published an announcement in which they discussed the 1.0.6 patch which will be released in the next few days.
Here’s how the 1.0.6 fix will improve the playing experience:
- Collision detection issue on the Bureaucratic Walk emote – fixed
- Gamers encountering empty public spaces too often during free roam – fixed
- Decreased the score limit in Clash from 75 to 50
- Decreased the score limit in Control from 100 to 90
- Time limit of the round in Survival decreased from 3 minutes to 2
- Life count in Survival decreased from 8 to 6
- In Supremacy, the score you need to win is increased from 50 to 70
These are only some of the issues that the patch will deal with, and we will be able to see the complete list once the update has been released.
Future Features and Improvements for Destiny 2
Christopher Barrett, Destiny 2’s game director, also discussed further improvements that the authors have been working on at the moment. These include:
- New rewards and systems that will provide optional extra pursuits to the players that are most engaged
- Adjustments to the economy to make it more meaningful and exciting
- Enhancements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies
- Organizing private games for the competitive community
- Improved prizes and replayability for adventures, strikes, and Lost Sectors
- Additional ways to spend earned materials and currency
Unfortunately, we won’t see these updates in the 1.0.6 fix, which means that we have to patiently wait for the developers to find the best way to implement them into the game.
Barrett also discussed some of the issues related to Destiny 2 and when they will be fixed. One of the problems that the authors will resolve soon is a crash problem during the sixth mission on AMD Vega GPUs. As for D2 not running on CPUs that lack SSSE3 support Bungie said that they would try to look into it. However, they didn’t make any promises, considering that the issue is occurring on processors that don’t meet the minimum requirements. That is why you should consider upgrading your machine rather than expecting the authors to fix the problem for you.
