Bungie has seemingly been teasing Destiny: The Taken King's April update for ages, but it's finally (almost) here -- and the studio has seen fit to release one last trailer that explains what all the fuss is about. The clip gives you a whirlwind tour of virtually everything that's new, including new quests, strikes and story missions, the increased Light level and new gear ranging from chroma trim (basically, shiny lighting) to Taken-themed armor.

Accessibility is a key theme, as well. You don't have to worry as much about needing to play specific game modes to boost your Light level, and you won't need a key to recover loot from the Prison of Elders. Clearly, Bungie realizes that Destiny's progression system is still somewhat convoluted. This isn't the same as a full-fledged sequel (that isn't coming until 2017), but it might give you a reason to come back if you burned out the moment you hit level 40.
