Bungie and Activision has officially announced the next expansion of the Destiny universe called Destiny: Rise of Iron available from September 20th, 2016.
“Rise of Iron is an exciting addition to the Destiny universe,” said Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie. “We are continually blown away and inspired by the growing Destiny community’s energy and enthusiasm.”
“We have been working hard with our partners at Bungie and are planning great, new content for Destiny’s 30 million registered players. Rise of Iron is the first step in fulfilling that promise,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “There’s a ton of content packed in Rise of Iron, including a new location, a new Raid and a new Strike, combined with more quests, weapons, gear, a competitive multiplayer mode and more that we think players are going to love.”
Rise of Iron is a large expansion where players will journey to an all-new setting called the Plaguelands where they must rise to become the next generation of Iron Lords. The new hub features a brand-new six-player Raid, a new social space that looks out onto The Plaguelands, new cooperative three-player Strike, more quests, weapons, gear, competitive multiplayer mode and maps, a Light level increase, a new mutated enemy faction of the Fallen, and more.
Destiny: Rise of Iron will be available on the PS4 and Xbox One. PS4 players will also get access to timed exclusive content for the expansion with more details about this dropping in the future. For those who pre-order, you will also get access to a limited edition, black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn.
