PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements are coming to Destiny 2 bundled up with the Curse of Osiris DLC. The first Clarion Call for Destiny 2 will be live all weekend long, starting on 17 November. Starting on 05 December, Ritual Resets will occur at 1700 UTC (GMT)

PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements are coming to Destiny 2 bundled up with the Curse of Osiris DLC. The DLC pack will bring timed exclusive maps to PS4.

The enhancements will include high dynamic range (HDR) lighting for both consoles, an "adaptive 4K" resolution for the PlayStation 4 Pro and a "4K" resolution for the Xbox One X. The first Clarion Call for Destiny 2 will be live all weekend long, starting on 17 November.

The event will grant you "double XP for everything you do with a fellow clan member in your fireteam. Your increased gains will run from 10 AM Pacific (6:00 PM GMT) on 17 November to 10 AM Pacific on 20 November. If you are dedicated to playing solo, there will be future Clarion Calls that won’t require you to play with a clan".

Now for the Curse of Osiris: Reset Changes. With the release of Curse of Osiris, Ritual Resets will no longer take place at 1 AM Pacific. Starting on 05 December, the resets will occur at 17:00 UTC (GMT). The DPS team's report said that they are "seeking to align the Milestone resets with event availability, such as Trials of the Nine or Iron Banner, to provide a uniform experience for players to follow each week."

The article also has some more news on Guided Games, in-game chat, and the emote wheel. First up, Guided Games: Social Designer M.E Chung said "Our goal with Guided Games for end-game content is about helping players find tight-knit communities to join, but we see and are very aware of the current issues." M.E. added that the team is aware of the problems that the lack of reconnections and audio-feedback poses.

Steve Dolan said that a team of "superhero engineers" is working on network stability across the game. He detailed the short-term fixes that'll be launching with the upcoming DLC:

  • We've added an audio cue so that you know when you've found a guide.
  • Full clans can now guide.
  • Added reminders that if you reject a clan, you're still at the front of the line, so you can only pick guides with a mission statement that looks appealing.
  • Guided games will support the new Nightfall and Raid content you’ll find in Curse of Osiris

The pair added that they are working on a clan chat as well. Also, it looks like no one wants the emote wheel more than M.E., and Steve wanted it "forever", or as he put it: "I've wanted this forever!"
