So after the title leak we got a bunch of pictures that leaked.
So yeah… Pre-Order for a Black Gjallarhorn…
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 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 Armour 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
JUNE 9 LIVESTREAM UPDATE (by @lyteforce)
During the official Bungie update this past Thursday, much of the leaked information has been confirmed. They also shared that the expansion will set you back $29.99 USD (though it seems that it’s also $29.99 CAD for those of us north of the border).
And many apologies to those of you on old-gen consoles - this bad boy is going to be next-gen only!
New Gjallarhorn - available through a questline where you forge your new horn with parts of armour from fallen Iron Lords. Black version is exclusive for those who pre-order.
Flaming Battle Axe - acquired during in-game play and used for a short period of time - similar to how Scorch Cannon currently works.
People went nuts of the leak of Gjallarhorn. You should’ve seen the reaction when it became apparent that you could get an Axe for a spell.
New Campaign - stories, cinematics, missions
New Places - The Plaguelands, Felwinter Peak, The Wall.
While not too many details were shared during the live stream about the social space, what we did learn is that we’ll have to fight our way in and capture it before it will become available to us. Kinda cool IMO.
New Coop Play - New Raid, New & Updated Strikes, New Patrols & Public Events.
New PvP - New Maps, New Mode, New Features.
Could it be that the new PvP mode is private matches? Or am I just reading into the singular?
Significant Light Level increase - more details released over summer (they made mention they were still working on the number).
JULY 20 LIVESTREAM UPDATE (by @lyteforce)
While just a quick tour to introduce some of the updates a portion of the Cosmodrome is receiving - winter is coming - we did find out that anyone who preorders will also receive an Iron Gjallarwing Sparrow to complement their Iron Gjallarhorn.
