Bungie will launch a patch for Destiny later today that continues to pave the road to Rise of Iron, but Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will have to get off at the next stop.

"This update will also be the last scheduled deployment for Legacy Consoles, excluding emergency fixes for future game-breaking issues," Bungie wrote in an announcement (via GameSpot).

Support for "legacy" versions of Destiny officially ends on August 16, after which players will no longer be able to share character progress across current- and last-gen hardware. You'll still be able to play online if you're running on Xbox 360 or PS3, although you won't be able to participate in special modes like Iron Banner.

The rest of the patch notes square away niggling details in advance of the September 20 release of Destiny's Rise of Iron expansion pack.
