Today, Bungie released a new update for Destiny, a video game in which players travel the galaxy asking themselves why they're still playing Destiny.

This patch is pretty good. It's full of improvements—some of which we asked for—that will make Destiny far more palatable. In addition to general bug fixes and some table-setting for the upcoming DLC (out December 9), the update tweaks and adds some really helpful things, including, most importantly, new Bounty slots.

You can see the full list of changes here. Some highlights:

  • Added a new social feature that enables users to access a channel for Team Chat
  • Matchmade teammates will now be able to talk to each other in Strikes and team-based Crucible matches

And:

  • Increased the number of Bounty slots in the Inventory from 5 to 10
  • Added shaders to Eva Levante's stock in the Tower
  • Shader preview functionality added to vendor and inventory screens
  • Emblems on vendors can now be previewed in the inventory screen

Finally, we can all suffer through even more Bounties at a time. Woohoo! There's other stuff in there too, so if you're a regular Destiny player, check out the full list over at Bungie's blog.

DISCUSSION

Almost every friend I know who played Destiny at launch is still playing it now, myself included. Why? Because, in spite of it's flaws, it's still an incredibly fun shooter that just feels really good to play. I've played several other shooters since Destiny came out, and none of them feel as good IMO. That said, these are certainly welcome changes, even if they all should have been there at launch.
