Destiny to get limited-time Sparrow Racing League tomorrow

Destiny offers players more than enough opportunities to shoot ‘em up, but it will soon be gaining another feature that should spice things up a bit. At the PlayStation Experience this weekend, Bungie announced the Sparrow Racing League, which allows Destiny: The Taken King owners to take part in Sparrow hovercraft races, may they be against friends or other players from around the world. In other words, those small crafts present since the game’s debut will be more than just mere means of transportation, but rather neat little racing machines.
Bungie whetted gamers’ appetites at the PS Experience expo with a quick teaser trailer, but according to a report from Forbes, some player vs player races should be in order, with some AI foes taking part as well. PS4 players, in particular, will get elite Sparrows and equipment, and a good chance of more Sparrow customization options. With Destiny often in need of some serious spicing up, the launch of a racing league should definitely help to that end, and give gamers much more to do than what is normally available.


There is, however, one important catch to keep in mind. The Sparrow Racing League, according to Bungie, will only be available for a limited three-week period beginning tomorrow. And it will only be available to those who own The Taken King, so you’ll need to upgrade to that and not the “classic” version. Hopefully Bungie would make this feature more permanent, as it certainly holds a lot of promise for old and new Destiny players alike.
