'Destiny The Taken King' DLC news: 'Sparrow League Racing' available until December 29


Bungie has announced that “Sparrow Racing League” is its holiday event and activity and that there will be no future expansions planned for the remainder of the year.

The studio also announced that fans of the game should wait for next year to receive more announcements. 

“Sparrow Racing League,” which challenges players to embark on an intense race in the planet Venus is the December update announced by Bungie via Twitter. However, it will only be available to players for three weeks at the Tower, the Bungie Blog posted.

Among the general fixes that the update introduced include adjustments to address players getting struck in slow sprint speed. Players can also now use charged melee attacks while tethered by Hunter’s Shadowshot ability.

The update introduces changes like adjustments to the Titan, and a rebalance of the the suite of armor and weaponry. The update also tweaked the Strikes and Nightfalls while the Crucible benefitted from some additions.

A report by IGN recently cited that Bungie is undertaking a new strategy for future support for “Destiny: The Taken King.”

Senior designer Derek Caroll, in an interview with Eurogamer, discussed that the studio is moving towards a more events based model similar to “Sparrow Racing League” rather than focus on releasing DLC packs.

“Rather than doing these giant, monolithic DLC packs, this way everybody who’s an owner of Taken King can enjoy these things,” Caroll said.

He added that Bungie decided to make adjustments to its strategies because they wanted to keep things fresh for the fans of the game.

“The way we’re going is: you can expect new content from the live team in Destiny although we’re not really telegraphing that. Certainly, players can expect new events and new content throughout the next year. We’re taking it one step at a time,” he explained.
