Destiny is finally getting the vault space upgrade players have been begging for since the beginning of the game’s launch cycle.
Destiny players can currently use vault space to store 20 pieces of amor, 20 weapons and 20 general item stacks. In the latest Bungle Weekly Update, the developer revealed that as of patch 1.1.2, due before House of Wolves drops, that will be increased.
The new totals are 24 armor pieces, 36 weapons, and 24 item stacks. This will allow you to store every Exotic from launch through House of Wolves, according to live team lead M.E. Chung.
The vault expansion has had consequences; PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users can no longer compare their items within the vault. UI engineering lead Brad Field explained:
“In the case of the Vault expansion, it became clear that we would be pushing very limited memory constraints on older generation hardware. We had a choice: leave the Vault as-is, or find some kind of compromise to enable it safely,” he said.
User research lead John Hopson said most users don’t have a full vault, and many of those who do are hanging on to junk.
“Very few people have completely full Vaults, but a lot of endgame players are bumping up against the limits,” he said.
“For example, 21% of players who are level 30+ have four or fewer free spaces in their weapon Vaults right now. The armor and general sections are slightly less full for most people, but not by much.
