In another leak, more details about Destiny's fall expansion, Rise of Iron, are unintentionally confirmed and its release date revealed ahead of schedule.
After a trickle of leaks about Destiny's fall expansion, titled Rise of Iron, the doors were blown wide open with full details about the expansion ahead of Bungie's scheduled Twitch reveal on June 9. First, Rise of Iron's release date was unintentionally posted on the main Destiny website, revealing that it will be coming out September 20, 2016. Fans already knew that the target release would be in the fall, but now they have a hard date.
Soon after that flub, the Destiny expansion was discovered on the Xbox Store, which gave full details of what is to come for Destiny fans:
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.
The leak also confirms the previous rumor that a new raid will be included, plus more:
- New Story Campaign and Quests
- New Armor and Gear
- New Weapons
- New Raid
- Maximum Light Increase
- New Strike
- New Plaguelands Zone and Social Space
- New Crucible Mode and Maps
- New Enemy Faction and Bosses
The Xbox Store also says the expansion will require 14 GB of space. Something that gamers may too find interesting is the fact that the Destiny website only listed Rise of Iron as being available on current gen consoles. Currently, Destiny is also available on last gen consoles as well as current, but it appears that from here on out Destiny may be only available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Rise of Iron appears to be about the size of The Taken King expansion, or perhaps just a bit smaller considering that The Taken King added a three new subclasses. It definitely looks like there will be a good amount of content for fans to dig into this fall.
Bungie has stayed silent on any of the leaks, but all will be officially revealed tomorrow by Bungie during a Twitch stream. This is just one of many games that have been leaked this week ahead of E3, including Watch Dogs 2 and Injustice 2.
