Just a day ahead of it’s live Twitch reveal, details of Bungie’s planned expansion for Destiny, Rise of Iron, has seen a massive info leak. Spotted on the XBOX store front, before being promptly taken down, a screen capture has emerged revealing details at the scope of the expansion.
The added features sound promising:
Destiny: Rise of Iron is the next highly anticipated expansion to the Destiny universe. The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.
New Story Campaign & Quests
New Armor and Gear
Maximum Light Increase
New Plaguelands Zone & Social Space
New Crucible Mode & Maps
New Enemy Faction and Bosses
Destiny hasn’t seen a significant DLC update since The Taken King came out in September of 2015. Since then it has only received incremental improvements and small events. The Rise of Iron looks to add a great reason to return to the world of Destiny for players who may have run out of new things to do.
Despite the leak, gamers are advised to still tune into the live Twitch stream, scheduled to start today (6/9) at 10AM PT, which will give you a detailed look at what is planned for the expansion.
Have you geeks moved on from Destiny? Will Rise of Iron be enough to tear you away from Overwatch, or whatever other game is filling the multiplayer shooter void?
