Bungie accidentally leaked details about the new "Rise of Iron" expansion, which is coming out September 20.
Some small details. Source: http://www.gameinfor...ne-and-ps4.aspx
EDIT: One more detail from the article, they're cutting off ties with Last-Gen.
Even more information has emerged via the Singapore version of the Xbox.com website. Rise of Iron will require both the Destiny base game and The Taken King expansions in order to play.
Further, the add-on will broaden the explorable territory on Earth in Old Russia. Players will visit a zone called The Plaguelands with Lord Saladin, the character who runs the occasional Iron Banner tournaments.
Here's the full list of items included in the Xbox.com listing:
- New Story Campaign & Quests
- New Armor and Gear
- New Weapons
- New Raid
- Maximum Light Increase
- New Strike
- New Plaguelands Zone & Social Space
- New Crucible Mode & Maps
- New Enemy Faction and Bosses
Nerding out: Old Russia.. the only enemies there are Fallen (and Hive, but they're most likely irrelevant now that Oryx is dead), so it's safe to assume that this DLC is going to be Fallen-themed, but we'll see more details tomorrow during the Livestream. Honestly, I've always wanted a Fallen Raid ever since House of Wolves. Their bosses are pretty intimidating compared to every other faction; I had more problems with Skolas than I ever did with Crota, plus their Captain-like bosses (Skolas and Archon Priest anyway) are the only bosses in the game that actively chase us, even if they take their sweet ass time doing so.
Although I rarely play Destiny anymore, this DLC might just give me that spark to play it again. Despite all of the rebalancing with the guns in the Crucible and the rather tedious grind, this is still a really fun game to play. I just like the shooting mechanics way too much to give it up.
