A new update for the Destiny Companion app will make it easier for players to find allies for raids, Nightfall Strikes, and more.
“Whether it lives on your desktop or in the palm of your hand, the Destiny Companion is your fully operational battle station,” Bungie writes. “It?s your clubhouse, your art gallery, your vault, and your debate hall. Of all the ways you can spend time using the companion, the one activity that will have the single greatest impact on your player experience is finding new allies to back you up in combat. No matter if your enemies are Guardians or aliens, we believe that Destiny is more fun with someone watching your back.
“The #Recruitment forum is always there for you to solicit allies, but it?s traditionally been a chaotic wall of potential Fireteams. We?ve had some ideas for how that could work better, and we?ve been executing on them. Very soon, we?ll be enhancing our forum with new ways to form up and roll out into the Solar System.”
An update to the app on all platforms will make it so recruitment posts display platform, activity, and availability, instead of the jumbled mess that it currently is. Players also have the option to filter recruitment messages via a series of drop down menus.
“Once the call to arms has been issued, sit back and watch your roster grow in real time,” Bungie adds. “Of course, it will be up to you to make the in-game connections needed to form up in a smart looking formation in orbit over your destination. Fortunately, every user of these features will have a profile linked to an active Guardian in good standing.”
These new features are scheduled to go live next week.
