Bungie updated Destiny on Tuesday with an all new event for PlayStation and Xbox owners. The Queen's Wrath is now live. It's not a new set of missions, however, but a new set of bounties with the chance to earn unique loot.
The set of doors opposite the Traveler in the Tower have opened up for this event. There you'll see a ship, and at the end of the walkway an emissary of the Queen. She's not the one giving away the bounties, though. She's selling weapons, armors, emblems, and shaders. You'll need to earn Queen's Favor to purchase these items, however.
Report to the Tower immediately, Guardian. The Queen's emissary will see you now. Her wrath will not go unanswered. pic.twitter.com/dv5S54WCDfTo earn Queen's Favor, head over to everyone's favorite Bounty Tracker Robot Vendor. You'll see a rotating set of six bounties available to purchase there spread across Story, Strike, and Patrol Missions, plus Crucible Matches.

RadiantViper on Reddit has already discovered Legendary items within the game. He was given a "Kill Mission" to complete in the destination selection screen above the daily Crucible match and Heroic Strikes. Once completed, he received the Queen's Guard Plate for his Titan.
For those wondering, the "Kill Mission" was a Level 24 Story Mission with an "Epic" modifier.
