Destiny is set to receive a patch this month that will fix an ongoing Trials of Osiris bug as well as add other quality of life improvements. While Bungie announced that Hot Fix 18.104.22.168 would be coming in April, the developer only highlighted a couple bugs that would get squashed in the upcoming patch.
One of those bugs, which Destiny fans have been complaining about since the launch of Age of Triumph, causes Trials of Osiris matches to go on indefinitely. Essentially, when a self-res Sunsinger Warlock revives and is killed as the last member of his/her team, the game timer freezes and the round is "stuck."
The only way to rectify the standoff is for one team to back out or for a team to get kicked out for inactivity. But that means the players who back out either voluntarily or are forced out of the game receive a loss on their Trials Passage and wreck their hopes for a Flawless run to the Lighthouse.
In addition to the fix to endless Trials matches, the patch will also fix an issue that players using the Destiny Companion app or other item managers have likely experienced since Age of Triumph launched. That is, the endless “Multiple Records” Record Book notification that triggers every time a player uses an application accessing Destiny’s API.
Those were the only bugs that Bungie specifically mentioned that will be patched in Hot Fix 22.214.171.124, although there are likely to be others included as well. Bungie said Hot Fixes aren’t named but if this one was it might be “Quality of Life Improvements of Triumph.”
Fans can probably take that to mean that there won’t be any weapon or class changes, but that this will be a patch to some known minor issues going on in Destiny. Another one of those issues that Bungie has acknowledged and could be fixed is an issue with new Treasure of Ages not being available if a player carries boxes from the previous week through a weekly reset. However, Bungie has not specified whether that particular issue is on the list for this patch.
Judging from Bungie’s history of issuing patches on Tuesdays, Hot Fix 126.96.36.199 will likely drop April 18 or 25. Full patch notes will be published at that point detailing exactly what this newest patch changes or improves.
As Destiny winds down with Age of Triumph, the next landmark on the horizon is the first reveal of Destiny 2 gameplay on May 18.
Destiny: Rise of Iron is available now on PS4 and Xbox One.
