Destiny: The Taken King has officially been out a week on the PlayStation and Xbox. Some players have already rocketed to top-tier Light levels and completed the Raid, while others don’t have that kind of free time and are still trucking along with completing the new Quests and other activities. Whatever your taste, there’s a fresh set of Nightfall, bounties, and other items to partake for the Destiny week starting September 22.
As always, this rotation of Destiny activities will last through the following Tuesday at approximately 5 a.m. ET / 2 a.m. PT. A new set of activities will launch then. Weekly Crucible bounties are dependent on completing the Crucible Quest Line given by Lord Shaxx.
