I guess my Xbox downloaded the patch when I wasn't paying attention - which is remarkable given how large it was and how slow my Internet is.
When I started playing last night I was going to try to figure out how I would know if I had the next-gen update. But I could tell immediately when I was in the Tower. Now, while my TV is technically 4K it is one of the very first ones and according to the Series X it doesn't have most of the features. It does 4K (in one HDMI input only) but not 120KHz and no HDR or any of the other stuff.
However, it was instantly noticeable. The problem I had is that I was getting pretty bad eye strain and even a bit of motion sickness from it! I think it's simply that I was very very used to the way Destiny 2 looked and played and while it is now better, my mind just isn't used to it. So I'm hoping that improves, because objectively it definitely looks better.
I'm so lost on how all the different systems work. I just went ahead with my Hawkmoon quest and did a little Iron Banner. I am way behind the power curve though and only seem to increase really slowly. The frustrating thing with me for this game the last year or so has been that when I put in the time to hit the soft cap and even exceed it a little, then, bam, a new season comes out and all that work is null and void and the cap raises again. It used to be that I would put in the work to get there and beyond and it would stay valid for a bit and would pay off in being able to do challenging raids and Nightfalls. But I don't do any of those any more so I'm not sure why I'm grinding out power levels other than out of force of habit .
Also, they supposedly brought back some sort of dungeon (Prophesy I think)? I was like WTF - I had never heard of that before!
