This September, Destiny players will embark on a new adventure in Destiny: Rise of Iron—a large expansion to the Destiny universe that introduces new locations, a new enemy faction, a new six-player Raid, and more. Revealed today as part of a special broadcast live from Bungie, Destiny: Rise of Iron features a new cinematic story that will take players to a brand-new location on Earth—The Plaguelands—where they’ll face a plague of unstoppable evil.
Rise of Iron also adds a wealth of new content, including a new social space called Felwinter Peak, a new cooperative Strike, competitive multiplayer mode and maps, more quests, weapons, gear, a Light level increase, a powerful new mutated faction of the Fallen, and more.
Rise of Iron also marks the return of the coveted fan-favorite weapon, the Gjallarhorn. While players will be able to acquire the new Gjallarhorn through Rise of Iron, those that pre-order the expansion will receive the limited edition black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn*.
Destiny: Rise of Iron will launch September 20 for current-generation consoles (Requires Destiny game and The Taken King—includes Expansions I & II—sold separately).
At launch, PlayStation gamers will also get access to a collection of timed exclusive content for Rise of Iron, content and timing of exclusivity to be announced at a later date.
*Access to Iron Gjallarhorn starting 09.20.16. Can be attained by pre-ordering Destiny: Rise of Iron and completing the in-game quest. See www.destinythegame.com for additional details. Iron Gjallarhorn not exclusive to any retailer or platform. Subject to availability.
