Bungie has posted a new helping guide on their site, indicating the changes that are coming to Destiny for players on PS3 and Xbox 360. After stating that the upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron, will not be available for last-gen players, it quickly became clear that Destiny was going to evolve and leave those consoles behind. Here are the events and elements that will stop being available to last-gen players after the new expansion drops this fall.
Trials of Osiris: The Trials of Osiris weekly Crucible event will no longer be available on Legacy Consoles beginning in August 2016.
Iron Banner: The Iron Banner Crucible event will no longer be available on Legacy Consoles beginning in August 2016.
Live events: Legacy Consoles will not have access to any Live Events beginning in August 2016. Live Events are limited-time Destiny event that can include specific playlists, Quests, Bounties, or Rewards. Examples of previous Live Events are the Festival of the Lost, Crimson Days, or the Sparrow Racing League.
