After yesterday's livestream unveiled the first details on Destiny's April update, the new weekly update from Bungie doesn't provide a whole lot of additional information. It does, however, offer a good look at some of the screenshots from the stream, and it reveals the particulars about the next round of Iron Banner coming up later this month.

You can see the images from the stream above, which show off some of the new armor, shaders, and enemies on the way in April. Today's blog post also clarifies a few details about what was (and wasn't) mentioned during the stream. The King's Fall raid will, following the update, offer drops up to 330, while the Court of Oryx will reward Artifacts up to 335. Meanwhile, despite what was said, Prison of Elders doesn't have checkpoints, making that a more challenging task than what might have been thought previously.

As for Iron Banner, things will kick off on March 29 at 10 AM PST. It will then run for a week, ending on April 5 at 2 AM. You'll be playing Control and have a shot at earning the weapons and armor listed and pictured below (the image of three gauntlets shows PlayStation-exclusive content).
