Today marks 2016's first major update in Destiny, a video game in which players travel through space watching their weapons get nerfed. For the first time in a long time, there’s new stuff for PVE players to do.

Also, there’s a Taken sword, which you can get by beating the main quest in this update (Pretender to the Throne). It’s my favorite weapon so far. Here’s a video of me swinging it around:

There are a ton of other new tweaks and additions to this update—you can read the full patch notes here—including new Prison of Elders challenges and a level cap bump to 335. There isn’t a lot of new content, but hey, it’s all free. (If you don’t mind being bombarded with hints that you should go check out Eververse, the helpful store for all things microtransaction.)

Kirk and I are going to play around with all the new stuff this week—we’ll keep you guys updated as we dig in.
