Refer-A-Friend Program Inbound For Destiny


As part of Bungie’s weekly updates for the hugely successful Destiny, the developer has teased a new ‘refer-a-friend’ system that should be making its way to the live game just in time for the holiday season.

The new system won’t, however, be coming as part of next week’s November update, but Bungie have attempted to stay ahead of leaks arising from ‘tech savvy’ fans of the game, and revealed some details early.

After this update is deployed, some of the more tech savvy among you will be able to dig up some details for a new initiative we have planned to arrive just in time for the holiday season. We’re planning something new to recognize and reward the Sherpas among you. We are calling it Refer-a-Friend.

Maybe you have a friend who will be getting Destiny as a gift this season. Perhaps their gift-giver will even be picking it up for them at a holiday sale coming to a store near you. If you intend to show them the way to the mountaintop, we’ll have new rewards aimed at recognizing your service to the Kinderguardian.

The studio is, according to the update, currently “putting the finishing touches on the program”, and players have plenty to look forward to in the weeks ahead, including the return of Iron Banner and a proper fix for the Hunter’s Quiver ability.

[The November update] will also contain good news for Hunters who draw from the Void with a fix that re-enables the Quiver perk. And that Nightstalkers will now be able to shoot three Shadowshots again, without the added ‘bonus’ that previously took the rest of us to infinity and beyond.

Tell us, are you still playing Destiny? Or have some of the other holiday releases been taking up your time recently? Let us know below.
