Destiny players are waiting with bated breath for the House of Wolves DLC, despite the announcement that it won’t include a new raid. However, while House of Wolves is scheduled to release just over a month from now, somehow Bungie is still finding time to provide other, smaller updates.
The latest Destiny update promised a host of tweaks, like increasing the size of players’ vaults, as well as a hidden Easter egg. Only a few hours after release, that Easter egg has already been found, thanks to one dedicated YouTube channel.
The 1.1.2 update weighed in at a whopping 6.05 GB for Playstation 4 players and 4.3 GB of data for Xbox One players, and amongst many other changes, included the ability to turn off background music. However, the update also included an incentive for players to keep their background music turned on. Arrekz Gaming discovered a futuristic jukebox in The Tower; see how to access it in the video above. While the player can play the jukebox play no matter what his or her audio settings are, there will be no sound for players who have turned the background music off.
Bungie may be making a subtle jab at Destiny players who demanded to have the ability to turn background music off, or it could be a special perk for those who decided to keep their audio turned on. In any case, it’s not the first time that a game developer has used a jukebox to hide Easter eggs. In Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2, jukeboxes appeared in some of the game’s levels. Mostly, these jukeboxed played regular songs. However, they were also programmed to – very rarely – play a fifth track: Portal‘s end-credits tune, “Still Alive.”
Whatever Bungie’s feelings are about its players’ choices regarding the game’s background music, the jukebox is a fun addition to the game. Destiny players who prefer to have their background music shut off still have access to all of the update’s other tweaks. Still, some players might be a bit peeved that they can’t enjoy the Easter egg without altering their game’s settings.
