Destiny to leave previous-gen consoles behind

Destiny players on previous-gen consoles will soon miss out on more than just the Rise of Iron expansion, Bungie says.

Starting in August, only new-gen consoles will receive content updates and events for the online shooter, such as Iron Banner, Trials of Osiris, and Live Events.

Previous-gen players will still be able to take part in daily and weekly missions, strikes, and Crucible playlists; raids; boss challenges; Prison and Challenge of Elders; and weekly Gunsmith activities.

Xur will still appear to previous-gen players on weekends, but will no longer sell Exotic items directly, instead sticking to Exotic Engrams and materials.

According to Bungie, 90% of Destiny players already use new-gen consoles, but stragglers can transfer their accounts over using this guide.
