We know Destiny is a game that has attracted millions that want to play it, which is astonishing for any game, and it does not lose its pace with listening to player feedback thanks to the games development team taking feedback critically. With Vault Space and Volume control having been a big issue, it left many people dumbfounded on why it was so limited, why Destiny had hit some huge bugs, and where volume control was for those wanting to tune sounds to their fitting. Starting today, Destiny’s team at Bungie has listened and taken that feedback rather critically. Starting today players can download the patch (Reportedly between 6.05gb’s across all platforms). So what is contained in this patch? Lets take a small look at the notes. We’re sure there’s more in Update 1.1.2 than what we are seeing. Could we be seeing the patch that pre-loads some of The House of Wolves? We’ll have to wait and find out.
