Destiny will be getting a few new features next week according to a new blog post from Bungie. The most notable addition is that Tess Everis will be coming to The Tower with a completely new style. Tess will be bringing the Eververse Trading Company to Destiny along with new items and emotes. With Tess’s new shop, a new currency will be introduced to the game.
According to Bungie, players will need “Silver” in order to purchase new items called emotes. “Silver” is obtainable using real world money.
To acquire these items, you’ll first need to pick up some “Silver,” a new in-game currency that will be available for purchase through the store associated with your console
For those worried that this will hinder the Destiny experience, avoiding the Eververse Trading Company will not penalize the player.
If you’re not interested in what Tess has to offer, you won’t ever be forced to pluck an item off of her shelf. You’ll still receive updates to the game, and you won’t lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn’t have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped.
The blog post goes on to say that the team will have continual updates for another full year.
Our plan is to use these new items to bolster the service provided by our live team for another full year, as they grow and create more robust and engaging events that we’ll announce later this year. It has been, and continues to be, our goal to deliver updates to the game. Going forward, our live team is also looking to grow beyond vital updates and improvements to focus on world events, experiences, and feature requests.
The last part of that quote about feature requests goes hand in hand with a few things one of our writers would like to see in Destiny at some point.
