Destiny's new hotfix doesn't add a lot to the game, but it does fix one of The Dark Below's blunders.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Latest Update Improves Parties And Rosters 

The new expansion added the game's second Raid, Crota's End, which offers new Raid gear as a reward. The problem was, that gear better by default than the armor you need to qualify for Crota's End, leaving players frustrated at the progression system. The update fixes that according to Bungie's post, starting the new Raid gear at level 30 with a leveling path to 32.
